  • CINEMA
    Chappaquiddick
    Sunday June 24, 7:00p–8:46p
    Presented by Fundy Cinema
    ▶ Show Details

    Cost: $9

    Among the most morally murky episodes in late-20th-century US politics—and that is a crowded field—was the drowning of campaign specialist Mary Jo Kopechne in what would become known as the Chappaquiddick Incident. Kopechne was trapped in a car that Senator Ted Kennedy drove off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island, Massachusetts, following a night of festivities. This sombre, suspenseful recreation of the accident and its aftermath, directed by John Curran (Tracks, The Painted Veil), invites us to speculate on how this shameful scandal came to be.

    The Kennedy dynasty had lost three heirs apparent by 1969, and Ted (Jason Clarke) was, at the time, the family's last hope to carry their name and ambitions into the upper echelons of US politics. Kennedy patriarch Joe (Bruce Dern, Nebraska), however, always considered his youngest son a ne'er-do-well—and he never let Ted forget it. The party on Chappaquiddick reunited the "Boiler Room Girls" who had served on Robert Kennedy's 1968 presidential campaign, among them Mary Jo (Kate Mara, Stone of Destiny). Ted whisks Mary Jo away for a reckless moonlight drive that ends in tragedy. But the more profound malfeasance begins after the drowning—itself dramatized here in harrowing detail—when a battalion of spin doctors gets to work on covering up the incident, using the Apollo 11 moon landing as a distraction.

    What makes Chappaquiddick such a brilliant historical drama is the way it focuses on moment-by-moment choices instead of suggesting some overarching conspiracy. This is an unsettling film about the way power strives to protect itself while bystanders are left by the wayside.

    "Jason Clarke opts for a more low-key approach to Teddy Kennedy, eschewing a big accent or showy mannerisms, and fully disappears into the role. It's his finest work yet, and proof of his ability to excel given the right material." (Kate Erbland, IndieWire)

    "Whether or not events actually unfolded this way, the story the film tells is an interesting and complicated character study, with something to say about the corrosive effects of power and privilege on both the innocent and the guilty." (A.O. Scott, The New York Times)

    "The movie is avidly told and often suspenseful, but it's really a fascinating study of how corruption in America works. It sears with its relevance." (Owen Gleiberman, Variety)

    Rendezvous Quartet

    Two incredible young musicians from Cuba studying abroad. Augusto Pedro in Spain and Alison Rocio in Canada. They are products of Cuba’s legendary music education system and the children of one of Cuba’s most loved singers, Augusto Enriquez. Augusto spent 35 years performing all over the world and has now chosen to live in Nova Scotia because like Cuba, we own a piece of paradise.

    Jeff Goodspeed is one of the most recognized jazz musicians in Nova Scotia. He and his wife Amara founded Los Primos Project together in 1997 to help with the shortage of instruments in Cuban music schools. In 20 years they have raised close to $600,000 for music education in Nova Scotia, delivered more that 700 instruments to schools and individual musicians in Cuba and organized more than 40 cultural exchange trips between Nova Scotia and Cuba. This summer Los Primos will present music of the Enriquez family all over the province.

    Augusto Pedro Enriquez has been studying music for the past 6 years in Spain and is now completing his Masters at the Royal Conservatory of Madrid. He has been featured as a soloist on classical guitar with the Madrid Symphony orchestra. As well as being a guitar master, he has inherited from his father, a voice with power and elegance.

    Alison Enriquez just finished her grade 11 after 2 years on scholarship at Armbrae Academy in Halifax. She is the principal 2nd violin in the NS Youth Orchestra and the Dalhousie Symphony Orchestra. At 17, Alison sings like a 30-year professional and is now a regular every week at Stayner’s Sunday Jazz.

    Alison and Augusto Pedro have not seen each other in over 4 years. Come join the celebration of this Cuban-Canadian Rendezvous in Nova Scotia. A family reunion that will make you laugh and bring a tear to your eye, as they play everything from the Classics to Latin Jazz and traditional Cuban music. This Rendezvous Quartet will bring and arsenal of instruments including violin, electric 5 string violin, classical guitar, electric guitar, Cuban guitar, saxophones (soprano, alto, tenor), flute, EWI, electric bass, percussion and beautiful voices.
