    The Stairs tells the story of Marty, Greg and Roxanne, each of whom survived decades of street-involvement. Using their experiences to ease the paths of others, each performs social work in their old neighbourhood, while struggling to maintain their newly-found stability. Told over five years, The Stairs is a non-judgemental character study of life on society’s margins. Defying stereotypes through intimate portraits, its remarkable subjects are by turns surprising, funny, shocking and moving.

    Philip (Sam Claflin) is a young Englishman plotting revenge against his late cousin's mysterious & beautiful wife, Rachel (Rachel Weisz). Believing her responsible for his cousin’s death, he is determined to reveal the truth. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms.

     

    Why we like it:

    • It’s Daphne du Maurier’s greatest book on screen
    • Its a healthy dose of vintage British drama
    • You get to watch Ser Jorah Mormont (from Game of Thrones) be an Englishman (Actor Iain Glen)
    • The scenery, cinematography & direction are simply mind-blowing
    • Rachel Weisz is captivating as Rachel

    Last Stand: The Vanishing Caribou Rainforest

    Last Stand: The Vanishing Caribou Rainforest

  • Jun 30, 2017 until Jun 30, 2017
  • Showtime: 7:30

    Last Stand: The Vanishing Caribou Rainforest is a cinematic journey into the tragically threatened world of endangered mountain caribou, their home in the world's largest remaining inland temperate rainforest, and the critical human choices that will ultimately decide the fate of this stunning ecosystem. With the failure of agencies in the U.S. and Canada to regulate industrial resource extraction effectively, honor the treaty rights of indigenous peoples, and protect the integrity of the natural systems of this region, this film gives voice to First Nations, scientists, foresters, conservationists, and recreationists attempting to chart a new path forward before it is too late.

    The evening will include:

        The Canadian premiere of the film
        A Q&A with the team after the film
        Other guest speakers working on important conservation efforts in BC
        A raffle featuring gear and other goods from sponsors

    Doors open at at 7:00 pm, Film starts at 7:30 pm

    Director: Ali Weinstein • 2017 • 76 Minutes • Documentary

     

    Since Disney’s The Little Mermaid came out, we have been obsessed with these aquatic creatures. In her first documentary, Ali Weinstein –daughter of Larry Weinstein– brings us closer to real-life mermaids around us. We follow the story of Cookie in Harlem, whose love for mermaids gets her closer to her husband Ralph, who lovingly creates her outfits by hand. We also meet Julz, transgender woman, who always wanted to be “one of the girls”, so “mermaiding” helps her break free from her bible-belt upbringing. All of the women featured follow a personal journey, where Mermaids reveal the healing power of imagination.
