18:30 Testament of Youth at Friday, July 31, 2015 at 6:30 »Tonight at City Cinema
Only 9 days left to see this film.

Rated: Parental Guidance (Mature Theme)
Runs: 129 minutes
Director: James Kent
Country: UK
Released: 2015
Starring: Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Taron Egerton, Emily Watson

“The tragedy of World War One and how it robbed England of a generation of bright young men is recreated from a woman’s point of view in The Testament of Youth. Based on a best-selling memoir by Vera Brittain, published in 1933 and dramatized for British television in 1979, it’s fresh fodder for an American audience and presented in a manner that is forthright without ever lapsing into cliché... Brittain’s story offers substance and surprise... the story is solid and especially well cast. Alicia Vikander is an earnest and credible heroine, and Kit Harington is equally effective as one of the male leads. With actors like Dominic West, Emily Watson, and Miranda Richardson filling out the supporting cast, it’s hard to go wrong Brittain is an independent-minded young woman who struggles to make a place for herself in a man’s world. She battles her father’s old-fashioned ideas and manages to be accepted to Oxford, where her professor cuts her no slack. Then war erupts. With the men nearest and dearest to her (including her brother) volunteering for what everyone agrees will be a quick assignment, she abandons her academic career to be of use behind the lines - even though there is no guarantee that she will be able to resume her academic career later on.Vera Brittain is not a plaster saint: she’s a modern woman who wants to be of use and can’t justify burying herself in books when men are fighting and dying just across the Channel. This singular story makes The Testament of Youth immediate and relevant... I enjoyed watching this handsome production, which provides timely reminders of the extraordinary sacrifices men and women made during the ‘war to end all wars,’ exactly one century ago.” - Leonard Maltin. “Handsomely mounted, skillfully acted, exquisitely photographed and genuinely touching, Testament of Youth is one of those rare film experiences that is just about perfect.” - Rex Reed, The New York Observer

18:03 Family Matinee: The Magic Flute @ India River (297 Words) »PEIinfo.ca | New Topics
Calling all parents and grandparents!

The Indian River Festival invites you to this special family matinee of "The Magic Flute" on Sunday, August 2nd @ 3:00pm. This is your opportunity to introduce the children in your life to one of the Western World's favourite live performance traditions - opera!

Special pricing includes:
$20 for adults/seniors
$10 for students
Children 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult!
* Please note: HST and service charge will apply to ticket prices

The Indian River Festival is pleased provide audiences with the unique opportunity to watch a semi-staged opera performance. This new version of "The Magic Flute" was conceived by director Brent Krysa with musical director Peter Tiefenbach, as a streamlined adaptation of the beloved Mozart original, retaining all the best music, and designed in the style of the Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte. A tale of love, magic, dragons, evil queens and heroic deeds, a new English version of the libretto will bring the story to life in an amusing and contemporary way. This same production will be performed at the prestigious Stratford Summer Music Festival later in the month.

Cast members include sopranos Jennifer Krabbe and Whitney Mather, mezzo soprano Shauna Yarnell, tenor Asitha Tennekoon and baritone Janaka Welihinda.

The first half of this concert will include a performance by the Indian River Festival Chorus singing works by Mozart, followed by "The Magic Flute" in the second half.

There will be a pre-concert talk at 2:30pm - join musical director Peter in conversation with director Brent, as they discuss the process of reimagining one of Mozart’s beloved operas.

The Magic Flute will also be performed on Saturday, August 1st at 7:30pm; regular ticket prices will apply....
16:42 The Island Fringe Festival »ruk.ca from peter rukavina

When I moved to Prince Edward Island, in the early 1990s, I was 27 years old.

And as near as I could tell, every other person on the Island was older than 50 or younger than 15. It was as if a reverse-Logan’s Run-like event had occurred, sucking all the cool young rockers out of the city.

If there’s any demographic change that’s happened in the intervening 20 years, it’s that the young, creative minds are, more and more, choosing to stay here at home. And you can see the result in the art, the food, the film, the music, the theatre, the coffee, the fashion. It’s a change that makes the city, and the Island, ever-more-liveable.

One of the events that’s an obvious expression of this demographic retention is The Island Fringe Festival, which runs next week here in Charlottetown, from August 6 to 9, 2015.

Apparently I was a sponsor of the festival in a previous year – all memory of this has escaped me – which prompted Josh Coles (one of the selfsame didn’t-leave-the-Island-for-Toronto young) to snag me on the street this afternoon and as if I was willing to re-up.

How could I say no.

And so we of Reinvented Inc. are now officially (re)minted corporate sponsors of the festival. Not at Maritime Electric-level “Rising Star” level, I imagine. Perhaps at “Muddled Star in Deep Space” level?

As a result, I doubly-encourage you to attend all of the events under the festival’s banner that you can: you will enjoy yourself, and you’ll be sending a clear signal to the teetering youth that the Island is the place to stay to make interesting fringyness of all sorts.

16:26 Lucy Angus Dives Deep into Samuel Holland's Map »ruk.ca from peter rukavina

You might think, pressing “play” on this video of conservator Lucy Angus, speaking at the Confederation Centre of the Arts on July 6, 2015, that you’ve missed a bit at the beginning.

But you haven’t: she just dove right in, without any of the “I had an uncle who grew up in Tryon” pleasantries that an Island speaker would spend the first 15 minutes of their talk on.

It was a pleasant change from the everyday.

Angus has a compelling enthusiasm about her project – the restoration of Samuel Holland’s 1765 map of Prince Edward Island for The National Archives, United Kingdom. Perhaps no person since 1765 has been on such an intimate basis with the map over an extended period. The result is a stunning restoration, involving the removal of years worth of grunge, some simply related to time, some the result of bad restorations-past.

I encourage you to watch the video through, and then to visit the map itself, on display in the Confederation Centre Art Gallery until January 2016.
