    Fundy Film screens SHAMELESS PROPAGANDA- Al Whittle Theatre 10th celebration begins: A co-presentation with the Acadia University Art Gallery’s current exhibit, “Consuming Conflict”.

    Is the documentary Canada's national art form? If so, foundations were laid in 1939–45 when the NFB began under the inspired vision of first commissioner, John Grierson, who saw the documentary as a "hammer to shape society.” This 2014 feature doc celebrating the NFB's 75th year, is Robert Lower's take on the greatest and most compelling propaganda effort in our history.

    Watching all 500 films produced up to 1945, Lower distills the essence of their message to Canadians. With these films and stills from the era, he recreates the Canada they gave us then and looks in it for the Canada we know today. What he finds is by turns enlightening, entertaining and unexpectedly disturbing.

Filled with stirring music and songs, this powerfully moving and imaginative drama is a show of phenomenal inventiveness. At its heart are astonishing life-size puppets by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.

    Food for the Camera: How to Cook, Style, Shoot and Translate with Matt Armendariz (MattBites) & Adam Pearson

    As a specialized area within the world of photography, food photography strives to stir your hunger, tell a story, teach a process or two, make a political statement, or share a moment on a subject in which we are all experts. Oftentimes the photography team is the direct link between the chef/cook, grower, maker and the end user, and the team uses a variety of techniques to expand and enhance or create a story around a recipe. Whether it’s commercial advertisements or editorial assignments, menus, packaging, or cookbooks, we’ll explore this highly fascinating area that strives to touch each of the senses: see, hear, taste, touch and smell.

    In 1975, Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky began his most ambitious project yet. With his young son alongside Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, David Carradine and Salvador Dali; Pink Floyd’s music and provocative (HR Giger, Jean 'Moebius' Giraud) artists’ work, Jodorowsky's adaptation of Herbert’s classic Dune was poised to change cinema forever.

    This is a dark suburban fable, exploring the nature of evil in unexpected places, by Dutch director/writer Alex van Warmerdam. An enigmatic vagrant, Borgman, enters an upper-class family’s home, quickly unraveling their lives. Things take a malevolent turn as his ultimate plan comes to bear, igniting a series of increasingly maddening and menacing events. The film’s unpredictability may confound as many viewers as it enthralls, but either way, it is a refreshingly original experiment in off-kilter terror.

    An endearing adaptation of the bestseller, this sometimes dark, often colourful comedy of unexpected surprises tells the unlikely tale of Allan Karlsson, a retired dynamite expert who escapes from a nursing home on his 100th birthday to embark on a hilarious journey—soon involving a suitcase stuffed with cash, a psychotic gangster and an elephant. But Allan is equipped having been in the heart of some of the 20th century’s most pivotal events, shared with the likes of Franco, Stalin, Truman, Reagan and Gorbachev.
