ARTS IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Thursday October 28, 7pm-8:30pm
Chapel Arts, 304 Dunlevy    Free

The Heart of the City Festival is pleased to show a selection of documentaries made by students of the Vancouver Film School under the guidance of instructor and documentary filmmaker Cari Green. A second program of films will be shown on Saturday November 6, 4pm in the Carnegie Theatre.

No Light at Midnight (2010)
This short documentary tells the story of the Pantages Theatre on East Hastings, the oldest remaining vaudeville theatre in Canada, and its struggle for revitalization in the DTES.  Directed by Jay Macmillan, No Light at Midnight is about the death of history and historical significance and speaks strongly to a specific case of preventable displacement and decay. (8:45”)

The Laughing Drum (2010)
A short film directed by Isaac Carter about Uzume Taiko, Canada’s first professional taiko drumming group. Their name is derived from taiko, the Japanese word for “big drum” and from the goddess of laughter, Ame No Uzume No Mikoto, who according to legend first began taiko drumming. The film gives a taste of the techniques, tools and drive that makes Uzume Taiko unique in the world of taiko. (9:23”)
