Living Is Easy With Eyes Closed at VanCity March 20th to the 28th

The Beatles are back! Music Mondays at VanCity Theatre

Blue Mondays are a thing of the past. VIFF invites you to enjoy superb music related films with Vancity Theatre’s state-of-the-art projection and sound for only $6. Sit back, relax, enjoy a beverage from our licensed cafe and rock on. If there was ever a flash dividing Britain’s dreary post-war fifties from its psychedelic sixties it’s A Hard Day’s Night. A day in the Fab Four’s life, it represents its era to a T while remaining timeless. It kicks off with a train trip from Liverpool to London and all sorts of antics, from problems with Paul’s grandfather to hapless reporters, bobbies on the beat, shrieking teen-age girls… Playful and irreverent, the lads remain cool as can be.

Sigur Ros: Inni opens at Vancity Nov. 4

Inni is Sigur Rós’ second live film following 2007’s hugely celebrated tour documentary Heima. Whereas that film positioned the enigmatic group in the context of their Icelandic homeland… Inni focuses purely on the band’s performance, and stands as a stark counterpoint to Heima’s kaleidoscopic richness. Where Heima was lush and colorfully expansive, Inniis spare and near-monochromatic…

VanCity Theatre Music Mondays presents Lou Reed’s Berlin

February 14th 830 PM VanCity Theatre. Oscar-nominated director Julian Schnabel (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) captures Reed performing his legendary 1973 album live for the first time. The doomed love story of addicts Jim and Caroline, Berlin’s 10 songs cycle through the couple’s initial drug-euphoric enchantment, their violent betrayals, their fatal collapse. In 1973, it was largely considered a flop. Today, it looks more like a masterpiece.

“Reed had never performed Berlin live in full until 2006, with a landmark five-day stretch at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn. Director/artist Julian Schnabel brought cameras to commit the performance to celluloid; the record’s original producer, Bob Ezrin, was enlisted to oversee. Redemption all around.

WILCO: ASHES OF AMERICAN FLAGS

Ashes of American Flags is an award-winning film presenting Wilco live in concert during their 2008 tour. Culled from concerts in five quintessentially American venues – Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, Tipitina’s in New Orleans, The Mobile Civic Center in Mobile, The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C.- the film captures the energy, poignancy and musicality of a Wilco concert and tour. Directed and produced by Brendan Canty and Christoph Green (Sunken Treasure, Burn to Shine), the film intersperses interviews with band members and day-in-the-life footage as the band travels across the U.S. .

Film: Gaspar Noe’s Enter the Void

After 7 years or so, Gaspar Noe, an Argentinean/French director comes back with a mesmerizing production that deals with the after life and the electronic circuits of Tokyo. The night life of the dead. After his controversial film Irreversible, Gaspar is bound to surpass the frontiers of art. Labeled by Noé as a “psychedelic melodrama”. This day-glo nocturne is told through the eyes of an American dope-dealer, Oscar (Nathaniel Brown), tripping on a powerful hallucinogen. That is, until Oscar is shot in a nightclub, when the film takes on the aspect of an out of body experience.

Trigger: Riot grrrl film

Rushed into production after Tracy Wright was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer (tragically she passed away in June), Trigger is a true labour of love, a communal effort from the best and brightest in Toronto’s film scene. Look for cameos from Wright’s partner Don McKellar, Sarah Polley, and Callum Keith Rennie, but this is really a two-hander at heart, exquisitely performed by Wright and Parker. With music is by Broken Social Scene’s Brendan Canning. The film was shot in 9 days.
