    Most people are familiar with the Christian Dior brand, if not in clothes, then at least with name recognition. Following the dismissal of John Galliano as Creative Director, Raf Simons took over as artistic director at Dior in 2012.

    As a man known for simple, clean lines, he had eight weeks to complete his first haute couture collection, from concept to complete. Go behind the seams as he creates his debut collection. Experience the collaboration with the long-time seamstresses of Dior, the tension leading up to a runway show and all the needles and buttons that go into a season’s collection at one of the most iconic haute couture houses in the world.

    “Fascinating, suspenseful, illuminating, and ultimately moving.” – Peter Keough, Boston Globe

    Michael Fassbender as a bounty hunter in the American West. Need we say more?

    Slow West follows Jay Cavendish (Kodi Smith-McPhee), who travels from Scotland looking for his young love, who fled and now has a bounty on her head. While traversing the wild American West of the 1870s, Jay meets Silas Selleck (Fassbender) who offers his service as a bodyguard against the gun-slinging bounty hunters. The unlikely duo work their way across the West, taking on everything that comes their way in this suspenseful and inventive drama.

    “There's more to the story than meets the bull's eye in Slow West, a brainy and genre-defying western by newcomer John Maclean.” – Peter Howell, Toronto Star

    Running on Climate

    Running on Climate

  • Jul 06, 2015 until Jul 06, 2015
  • Showtime: 7pm

    Running On Climate looks at the lengths scientists will go to highlight the danger of runaway climate change and what actions individuals can take to help avert catastrophe.

    The 83-minute documentary was filmed extensively in the Oak Bay area as it followed University of Victoria climate scientist Andrew Weaver's run to become the first Green candidate to win a seat in a Canadian provincial legislature.

    The film also looks at the radicalization of scientists, epitomized by the arrests of former NASA scientist James Hansen and, closer to home, SFU professor Lynne Quarmby, who is seen arrested blocking a US thermal coal train in White Rock and protesting the Kinder Morgan pipeline on Burnaby Mountain.

    The Georgia Straight described Running On Climate as “an exhilarating portrait of a grassroots political campaign from the moment of its origin".

    Last of the Elephant Men

    Last of the Elephant Men

  • Jul 10, 2015 until Jul 12, 2015
  • Showtime: 4pm

    Filmed over several years, Last of the Elephant Men shows the effect of rapid globalization on the indigenous Bunong people of Cambodia.  Known for the unique and profound bond they have with elephants, the Bunong struggle to maintain their way of life without commodifying their culture. 

    A Quebec and France co-production, Last of the Elephant Men follows the story of three Bunong families as they struggle to adapt.  A man seeks to make amends with the elephants he wronged, a woman searches for one who had been part of the family, and a teenage boy begins his training to become a mahout (elephant trainer/caretaker) at a time of accelerating change and unprecedented uncertainty.

    Selected by Hot Docs 2015 and in competition with Oscar-winning Citizenfour at the Prague One World Film Festival, Last of the Elephant Men plays at the Vic July 10th to 12th.

    Writer and Co-Director Daniel Ferguson will be in attendance at all four screenings!

    “It's not entirely clear how much of Big Game is funny on purpose, but it hardly matters when the action is so slick and the dialogue so ripe.” – Donald Clarke, Irish Times

    Danish director Thomas Vinterberg’s (The Hunt, Celebration) adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s 1874 classic novel is lead by Carey Mulligan as the heroine Bathsheba Everdene, who is drawn in different directions by three very different suitors. Will she choose to marry or remain mistress of her own land?

    Her contrasting suitors are played by Matthias Schoenaerts (Rust and Bone, The Drop, Bullhead), Tom Sturridge (On the Road, Pirate Radio) and Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex, Midnight in Paris). With a strong cast, lead by Thomas Vinterberg, this remake puts a beautiful spin on this classic story about an independent and headstrong Everdene and consequences of the time.

    “A thoughtful literary adaptation that lives up to expectations, Far From the Madding Crowd breathes exciting new life into a classic story.” – Connie Ogle, Miami Herald

    Brian Wilson is portrayed by both Paul Dano and John Cusack in this bio-pic telling Wilson’s story, from his rise in the 1960s with his unique ear for sounds and music, to the 1980s when his mental health had deteriorated to a point that he was heavily reliant on his psychotherapist, Dr. Eugene Landy (Paul Giamatti). This eye-opening biopic shows his inner (voice) struggles and how he overcame them and was able to return to the music he loved.
