Kong: Skull Island (PG)

Friday, March 24th to Thursday, March 30th, 2017
click image for more information KONG: SKULL ISLAND (PG)
In the 1970s, a diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted but beautiful isolated island that goes by the name of Skull Island, in the Indian Ocean. They soon discover that the island is home to a wonder of colossal proportions — the gigantic and prehistoric ape known as King Kong, who possesses great strength and semi-human intelligence. As the team ventures deeper into the primate’s territory, it becomes clear that they have more to fear than Kong, as there may be more terrifying, blood-thirsty predators lurking on the island.

RUSSIAN AVANT-GARDE

Revolution – New Art for a New World

Marking the 100th Anniversary of the 1917 Russian Revolution
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Margy Kinmonth, the film encapsulates a momentous period in the history of Russia and the Russian Avant-Garde. Drawing on the collections of major Russian institutions, contributions from contemporary artists, curators and performers and personal testimony from the descendants of those involved, the film brings the artists of the Russian Avant-Garde to life. It tells the stories of artists like Chagall, Kandinsky and Malevich – pioneers who flourished in response to the challenge of building a new art for a new world, only to be broken by implacable authority after 15 short years and silenced by Stalin’s Socialist Realism.

Yet these remarkable artworks survived and the Russian Avant-Garde continues to exert an influence over contemporary art movements. Revolution: New Art for a New World confirms this; exploring the fascination that these colourful paintings, inventive sculptures and propaganda posters retain over the modern consciousness 100 years on.

THE ARTISTS’ GARDEN:
AMERICAN IMPRESSIONISM
From the Florence Griswold Museum in Connecticut, widely considered a home of American Impressionism.
 Taking its lead from French artists like Renoir and Cezanne, the American impressionist movement followed its own path which over a thirty-year period reveals as much about  America as a nation as it does about its art as a creative powerhouse.  It’s a story closely tied to a love of gardens and a desire to preserve nature in a rapidly urbanizing nation. Travelling to studios, gardens and famous locations throughout the United States, UK and France, this mesmerizing film is a feast for the eyes.

DER ROSENKAVALIER

by Richard Strauss

Live in HD from New York’s Metropolitan Opera
Set in mid-18thcentury Vienna, the Marschallin, in the absence of her husband, is having an affair with Octavian, an attractive young count. The Marschallin’s boorish cousin, Baron Ochs, hopes to ensnare Sophie, the lovely daughter of a nouveau riche gentleman and sends Octavian to offer Sophie a silver rose. But, when Octavian arrives to present the rose, he and Sophie fall in love at first sight. After various complications, the ardor of youth wins out.

The dream cast of Renée Fleming as the Marschallin and Elīna Garanča as Octavian star in Strauss’s grandest opera. In his new production, Robert Carsen, the director behind the Met’s recent Falstaff, places the action at the end of the Habsburg Empire, underscoring the opera’s subtext of class and conflict against a rich backdrop of gilt and red damask, in a staging that also stars Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs. Sebastian Weigle conducts the sparklingly perfect score.

Command Performance Choir
in collaboration with Ottawa’s 
Goulbourn Jubilee Singers
will be celebrating Canada’s Sesquicentennial with the music of Canada by Canadians. The two choirs have collected a wide variety of Canada’s music, from our distant past right up to the present moment. They will join forces and sing a number of these pieces together as well as singing as separate choirs.

A featured piece for this special concert will be a newly commissioned work, by Composer James Wright. The world premier of Sleep Softly Spirit of Earth will be a highlight of the afternoon. Of extreme interest to people living in the county is that the lyrics of this new work are in fact based on the poetry of Al Purdy, the county’s poet from Roblin Lake, from a poem of the same name. The two choirs will perform this choral piece together, 100 voices strong. This initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, a collaboration between, the Prince Edward County Community Foundation in conjunction with Canada 150 and co-sponsored by Quinte Arts Council, the Government of Canada, and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast.

A portion of the proceeds from this concert will go to support the A-Frame Association, a heritage group which supports new poets via Al Purdy’s cottage on Roblin Lake.

RAPHAEL:
LORD OF THE ARTS
One of the greatest Renaissance artists, as well as one of the most influential for the subsequent history of modern art, Raphael was widely regarded and celebrated as an “enfant prodige” by both his peers and generations to follow. Together with Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael forms the traditional triad of the Renaissance masters. And yet, not many people know his story. With commentaries by important critics and refined historical reconstructions, “Raphael – Lord of the Arts” sheds a light on his life and his exquisite craft that marked the passage from the Renaissance to the Mannerism and brought the figurative art to unprecedented heights.

MICHELANGELO:
LOVE AND DEATH
The spectacular sculptures and paintings of Michelangelo seem so familiar to us, but what do we really know about this renaissance genius? Who was this ambitious and passionate man? A virtuoso craftsman, Michelangelo’s artistry is evident in everything he touched. Beautiful and diverse works such as the towering statue of David, the deeply moving Pietà in the Papal Basilica of St. Peter and his tour-de-force, the Sistine Chapel ceiling still leave us breathless today.

Spanning his 89 years, Michelangelo – Love and Death, takes a cinematic journey from the print and drawing rooms of Europe, through the great chapels and museums of Florence, Rome and the Vatican to explore the tempestuous life of Michelangelo. We go in search of a greater understanding of this most charismatic figure, his relationship with his contemporaries and his valuable artistic legacy. Through expert commentary and Michelangelo’s own words, this film takes a fresh look at an enigmatic man whose life is celebrated in every mark and every stroke he made. A giant artistic force and universally loved, discover why Michelangelo is without a doubt one of the greatest artists of the Renaissance – and perhaps of all time.
