Chesterfield Chat: Exploring Higher Education in Canada (Virtual)

Chesterfield Chat: Exploring Higher Education in Canada (Virtual)

Register for free!

The Digital Moose Lounge invites families to meet three adventurous young adults on our upcoming Chesterfield Chat panel. 

MORE

High school will soon be out for kids in the Bay Area and throughout the US. “College” list-making is in full swing for rising Seniors, who will be applying to university this Fall. Even Sophomores and Juniors (and their parents!) are thinking about life after high-school, including Canadian higher education options available to them. It can be difficult to navigate college planning in this country. But what about making plans for university in Canada? How does that actually work?!

All of these 2nd year university students grew up spending some or all of their time in US schools before heading to Canada for university. Please join us for an open discussion and Q&A to find out why they chose a Canadian university, what they’ve enjoyed about their experience studying in Canada, and their tips for applying.

Join our host, David Stewart, DML Past Chair for an informative and engaging discussion with three GenZ panelists. David grew up in Canada and attended McGill for both his degrees. David relocated to the US for work and eventually landed in the Bay Area where he and his wife Margaret raised three wonderful children, He was unable to convince any of them to attend university in Canada. Special guest, Rana Sarkar, Consul General of Canada in San Francisco, and father of two, will share opening remarks. 

The Panel: 
Sophia Renn
Sophia Renn (2nd year) is studying Natural Resources Conservation at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Her home is a short drive away in Gig Harbor, Washington. Sophia’s mom is originally from Canada. That made Sophia a dual citizen and also made attending university in Canada a reality. 




Lauren McLaughlin (2nd year) is at Carleton University in Ottawa completing a Bachelor of Media Production and Design with a double minor in Film Studies and Women and Gender studies. Lauren’s parents are both Canadian. She grew up in San Diego, California and was interested in studying in her parents’ homeland.

 




Leah Csermak (2nd year) is at the University of Ottawa. She is currently completing her Bachelor degree in Human Kinetics with a focus on the social sciences. Leah’s childhood home was in Niagara Falls, Ontario before moving to Laguna Niguel, California with her family.

Chesterfield Chat: Canadians Helping Immigrants in our Community (Palo Alto)

Chesterfield Chat: Canadians Helping Immigrants in our Community (Palo Alto)

Morrison & Foerster - 755 Page Mill Road Palo Alto, CA 94304

The Digital Moose Lounge is pleased to present our upcoming Chesterfield Chat event, part of our new "Canadians Doing Good" series.

MORE

Northern California is at the center of the national debate around immigration. Comprehensive Immigration Reform has stalled anew, and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program's termination has created uncertainty for over 700,000 Dreamers. Meanwhile, rising anti-immigrant rhetoric and ICE raids have raised fears in our local immigrant communities. But behind the headlines, nonprofit lawyers continue to provide legal assistance to immigrants facing removal or seeking asylum before administrative tribunals and California courts. Hear our panel of local Canadians involved with immigrant legal services share their insights on how the current climate has affected their practice; what they have learned about our community; and how being Canadian has shaped their outlook. 

Helen Beasley, from Oakville, Ontario, is a Managing Immigration Attorney at the Community Legal Services of East Palo Alto (CLSEPA) and an expert on Children’s Immigration law; Cristina dos Santos, from Bowen Island, BC, is a Senior Immigration Attorney at CLSEPA and an expert on Humanitarian Relief for immigrants. The panel will be moderated by David Stewart, a McGill Law alum and a Digital Moose Lounge board member and CLSEPA volunteer. After the discussion, there will a Q & A with the audience and networking with other Canadians and attendees.

Thanks to our generous sponsors for this event: British Columbia Trade and Invest and McGill University. Also special thanks to Morrison & Foerster law firm for providing the space. Light food and refreshments will be available.

Don't miss the chance to meet him at one of three engagements in the Bay Area, including this one at Copperfields in Petaluma.

ABOUT CHILDREN OF THE EARTH AND SKY

From the small coastal town of Senjan, notorious for its pirates, a young woman sets out to find vengeance for her lost family. That same spring, from the wealthy city-state of Seressa, famous for its canals and lagoon, come two very different people: a young artist traveling to the dangerous east to paint the grand khalif at his request – and possibly to do more – and a fiercely intelligent, angry woman posing as a doctor’s wife but sent by Seressa as a spy.

The trading ship that carries them is commanded by the accomplished younger son of a merchant family, ambivalent about the life he’s been born to live. And farther east a boy trains to become a soldier in the elite infantry of the khalif – to win glory in the war everyone knows is coming.

As these lives entwine, their fates – and those of many others – will hang in the balance when the khalif sends out his massive army to take the great fortress that is the gateway to the western world.


ABOUT GUY GAVRIEL KAY

Guy Gavriel Kay is the international bestselling author of twelve previous novels and a book of poetry. He has been awarded the International Goliardos Prize for his work in literature of the fantastic and won the World Fantasy Award for Ysabel in 2008. In 2014 he was named to the Order of Canada.

VOLTA Cirque du Soleil (Feb 13 - March 24) (San Jose)

Under the Big Top, Santa Clara County Fairgrounds

Cirque du Soleil's VOLTA is in San Francisco until February 3rd, and then moves to San Jose starting February 13th!

MORE

Freedom is the ultimate achievement.

VOLTA is a captivating voyage of discovery. It’s about finding yourself, and unveiling your personal powers. Inspired in part by the adventurous spirit that fuels the culture of street sports, the show weaves acrobatics in a visually striking world driven by a stirring melodic score.

VOLTA is a story of transformation. It is about being true to oneself, fulfilling one’s true potential, and recognizing one’s own power to make it possible. Ultimate freedom comes with self-acceptance, and with the liberation of the judgement of others.

WAZ, is a gameshow contestant that has lost touch with himself. He’s ashamed of who he is because of his difference. He enters the show in search of fame, thinking that this will bring him love and acceptance from others. What he finds is something else. That fame is not the answer. If fame doesn’t provide freedom and acceptance, then what does? Will WAZ reconnect with his true self – and stand up for all that makes him truly unique? Will he realize that his difference is what makes him extraordinary?

A young actress is willing to do whatever it takes to get a part in the film of a famous director, whom she admires. Invited to audition for the director, she’s pushed to the breaking point in order to reveal her true talent.

Une jeune actrice, prête à tout pour obtenir un premier rôle dans le film d’une célèbre réalisatrice, dont elle admire les oeuvres, est invitée à passer une audition devant son idole, qui la poussera dans ces derniers retranchements afin de révéler au grand jour, tout son talent.

Then we will continue with Origami (2017, 99 min) by Patrick Demers

David is travelling. He's on a unique trip that doesn't take him from one place to another but from one moment in time to another. Seeking to understand the strange power he has to move around in his own timeline, David will eventually have to confront the disassembled chronology of his own life as well as his repressed past.

David (François Arnaud) voyage. Un voyage singulier qui ne l’amène pas d’un lieu à un autre, mais bien d’un moment à un autre. Cherchant à comprendre cette étrange faculté à se mouvoir sur sa propre ligne du temps, David devra faire face à sa propre chronologie déconstruite ainsi qu’à son passé refoulé.

Diplomat Luncheon: NAFTA at the Negotiating Table

Diplomat Luncheon: NAFTA at the Negotiating Table

World Affairs Auditorium - 312 Sutter Street, Suite 200 San Francisco, CA 94108

How does NAFTA benefit Canada, Mexico and the United States? On March 21, Canada Consul General Rana Sarkar and Mexico Consul General Gemi Jose Gonzalez Lopez will discuss what would happen if the US withdrew from it. 

MORE

Since 1994 NAFTA, a free trade agreement between Canada, Mexico, and the US, has supported one of the world’s largest free trade areas.

The deal led to extensive economic growth in all three countries with the flow of goods and supplies generating more than $1.1 trillion in trade as of 2016. There has been a net gain of 40 million jobs, and the automobile, textile, and agriculture industries have all benefited from the accord. In particular, Mexico has helped the US auto industry remain competitive in the market, while Canada is the leading importer of US agricultural products. Despite positive impacts, the new US administration under President Trump has been critical of NAFTA, even to the point of threatening a withdrawal from the agreement.

How does NAFTA benefit Canada, Mexico, and the US collectively and why is it important for this partnership to remain in place? Are there elements of NAFTA which can be improved? If the US withdraws from the agreement, how would this move impact trade and the industries involved?

Canadian Consul General Rana Sarkar and Mexican Consul General Gemi Jose Gonzalez Lopez will give their perspectives on the trade deal.

Hosted by World Affairs.

MORE

The March 22 talk will feature Professor Stephanie Ben-Ishai discussing "Millennials In Crisis: Myth Busting Millennial Debt Narratives."

Intense pop-cultural commentary on millennial finances and indebtedness perpetuate two common media narratives. One narrative suggests “millennials are doomed” and that millennials face higher debt levels compounded by rising tuition costs, a lack of affordable housing, high costs of living, and an increasingly competitive job market. Counter to this narrative, the “millennial bootstrapping” narrative refutes the assertion that millennials are more financially challenged than previous generations and argues that millennials need to “pull up their bootstraps” and improve their work ethic to secure financial success.

This event is part of the UC Berkeley Canadian Studies monthly lunchtime colloquium series. Lunch will be at 12 and the lecture will begin at 12:20 p.m.

Free.

This event is part of the UC Berkeley Canadian Studies monthly lunchtime colloquium series. March's lecture will be Intergenerational Income Mobility in Canada and the United States, with speaker Marie Connolly, from the Université du Québec à Montréal.

MORE

March's lecture will be Intergenerational Income Mobility in Canada and the United States, with speaker Marie Connolly, from the Université du Québec à Montréal.

Intergenerational mobility is about twice as great in Canada than in the United States, but varies significantly within each country. Our sub-national analysis of six different indicators finds that the national border only partially distinguishes the close to one thousand regions we analyze within these two countries. The Canada-US border clearly divides Central and Eastern Canada from the Great Lakes regions and the Northeast of the United States. But these differences drive only part of the national differences in mobility. While some Canadian regions have more in common with the low mobility southern parts of the United States than with the rest of Canada, the fact that they represent a much smaller fraction of population is the other reason why overall mobility is lower in the United States.

This event is part of the UC Berkeley Canadian Studies monthly lunchtime colloquium series. Lunch will be at 12 and the lecture will begin at 12:20 p.m.

Montreal Symphony Orchestra Visits UC Berkeley

Montreal Symphony Orchestra Visits UC Berkeley

Zellerbach Hall - 101 Zellerbach Hall Berkeley, CA 94720

The Montreal Symphony Orchestra comes to Berkeley with music director Kent Nagano. The soloist accompanying the Orchestra will be pianist Daniil Trifonov, who will perform Prokofiev's Concerto No. 3 in a program that also includes Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring. 

MORE

Beloved maestro and former Berkeley Symphony music director Kent Nagano leads the Montreal Symphony Orchestra in a dynamic program of early 20th-century works, including Debussy's sprightly Jeux and Stravinsky's towering The Rite of Spring, composed within a year of each other for Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes.

Pianist Daniil Trifonov joins the full-bodied orchestra for Prokofiev's emotionally expansive third piano concerto, a work he has performed to acclaim: "he offered far more than mere virtuosity ... Trifonov demonstrated an elegant touch and witty grace in more lighthearted moments and poetic insight in more introspective passages" (The New York Times).

Tickets $42-135.

Antisemitism Online: Combatting Hate & Discrimination in Digital Spaces

Global Affairs Canada in partnership with the American Jewish Committee presents a sobering yet critical online conversation, as we work together across borders to combat antisemitism in digital spaces and wherever else it may exist.

MORE

In the wake of COVID-19, Canada’s Digital Inclusion Lab has conducted an extensive data analysis of online activity that revealed a significant spike in online hatred and discrimination towards Jewish people.

The results of this research were proved shockingly accurate during the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C.  In an effort to start a conversation on the results of this analysis and build strong pathways for action, the Consulates General of Canada in San Francisco and Los Angeles are pleased to partner with the American Jewish Committee to host a virtual panel discussion with the Digital Inclusion Lab’s key researcher and leaders from the international Jewish community.

This event coincides with the release of AJC’s latest version of the Antisemitism Compendium, putting Canada’s reporting in context. We hope that you will join us as we work to secure a more equitable future devoid of this kind of unspeakable hatred and discrimination.

This special Playdate for the Imagination™ is a weekend filled with family friendly films from around the globe (did we mention all the Canadian content?!) and hands on animation and filmmaking workshops for our youngest artists.

MORE

BAICFF is working closely with the NFB , the National Film Board of Canada, recognized the world over as one of the great cultural laboratories for innovation.  For 10 years we have shown at least one NFB short in its programing without any demands or fees from the NFB. They have always been a pleasure to collaborate with and we are honored to continue the partnership in years to come. 

This year we expanded our Canadian slate of films, and it seems the Festival will be very Canada-centric for our 10th anniversary! 

Just nominated for a 2018 Oscar for Best Animated Feature, Stuart Shankly will also be joining us from Toronto, the renowned Canadian animated filmmaker and Assistant Director of the highly acclaimed animated film, The Breadwinner. Stuart will be joining us for the weekend and to take part in a Q&A following the film.

The line-up of Canadian films, and a block of shorts including two BAY AREA PREMIERES includes:

 
The Sunrise Storyteller by Kasha Sequoia Slavner, 1:04:25, Canada, 2016
The Sunrise Storyteller follows the hero’s journey of teenage filmmaker & social justice advocate, Kasha Sequoia Slavner, as she sets out for six months on her 16th birthday across the world in search of stories of hope and resilience that shine a light on what it means to be a global citizen and how we can all make a difference.
 
Anthems : A Journey Around the World by Stephanie Dieter, 39’55, Canada, 2017
10-year old Canadian singer and Guinness World Record-holder Capri Everitt embarks on a unique journey with her family to 80 countries where she sings the national anthem of each country in the national language in an effort to raise money and awareness for orphaned and abandoned children around the world 
The Magic of Anansi by Jamie Mason, 6′, Canada, 2001
Anansi the spider is tired of being looked down on by all the jungle animals–just because his webs don’t catch bugs.
The Mountain of SGaana by Christopher Auchter, 10’02, Canada, 2017
A magical tale of a young man who is stolen away to the spirit world, and the young woman who rescues him. Haida filmmaker Christopher Auchter’s dream-like gem brilliantly entwines traditional animation with formal elements of Haida art.
How Dinosaurs Learned to Fly *BAICFF Children’s Choice Winner 2013* by Munro Ferguson, 5′ 58, Canada, 1995
The dinosaurs were headed for trouble. They ate nothing but junk food. They never brushed their teeth. They stayed up all night long. And although they loved to jump off cliffs, they didn’t like landing. The early mammals tried to warn them, “You’ll all be extinct if you keep that up!” 
Hedgehog’s Home by Eva Cvijanovic, 10′, Canada, 2017
In a lush and lively forest lives a hedgehog. He is at once admired, respected and envied by the other animals. However, Hedgehog’s unwavering devotion to his home annoys and mystifies a quartet of insatiable beasts: a cunning fox, an angry wolf, a gluttonous bear and a muddy boar.

Juno Award-nominated duo Kacy and Clayton are coming to San Francisco and will be playing selections from their latest album, Strange Country.

More:

The music of Kacy and Clayton exists outside of time, and burgeons with beautiful contradictions. It’s psychedelic and traditional, contemporary and vintage, melancholic and joyous. All at once, it showcases a slightly psych-folk sound of Linda Perhacs, Fleet Foxes, and First Aid Kit; rare country blues records and English folk tunes; and 1920s disaster songs and murder ballads. Their songs often are sugar-coated pills, tales of murderous jealousy, dilapidated graveyards, and infanticide, all delivered with Kacy Anderson’s sweet, lithe voice, and Clayton Linthicum’s hypnotic fingerpicking.

$10 in Advance // $12 at the Door.

MORE

Dr. Omond Solandt became a venerated voice on military and science affairs just when fears of atomic and then thermonuclear war rose in global consciousness. His experience gave way to a view on war, weapons, and the reality of the atomic age that was rational, clear, and rooted in his belief in the power of rational actors to make good on the world. As the destructive yield of thermonuclear weapons grew, however, his attitude changed while American counterparts like Herman Khan would later contemplate the realities of full-bore nuclear warfare as a policy option. So, was Solandt more Mr. Spock than Dr, Strangelove? Dr. Jason S. Ridler, author of Maestro of Science, will explore Solandt's unique personality and role as an early expert on atomic weapons.


Buffet lunch at 12 noon followed by lecture at approximately 12:20.

Film: "...As If They Were Angels" (Mill Valley Film Festival)

Film: "...As If They Were Angels" (Mill Valley Film Festival)

Century Larkspur Landing - 500 Larkspur Landing Circle Larkspur, CA. 94939

Two months after Pearl Harbor and the US entry into World War II, a pair of destroyers escorted a supply ship through the treacherous North Atlantic to a base in Newfoundland. 

MORE

A nasty storm, combined with an officer’s reluctance to trust his experienced navigator and newfangled radar, ran two of the ships aground on the rocks of adjacent coves. More than 200 sailors on the Pollux and the Truxton lost their lives, but nearly as many were rescued by local miners and townspeople. Director Terry Strauss, whose father was one of the survivors, plumbs a trove of photographs, documents, drawings, and interviews to recount a moving story of sacrifice, endurance, and heroism. The film hits an emotional peak with footage of the 1988 reunion between the American survivors and the Canadian townspeople who saved and cared for them. Peter Coyote narrates this remarkable saga with a blend of tender empathy and palpable amazement.

Expected Guests: Director Terry Strauss; Cinematographer Barry Schienberg; Editor Lou Wirth; Talent Peter Coyote; Crew Phoebe Wall Howard, Sasha White (All Screenings).

Why Canadians Love Immigration and Americans Aren't So Sure (Berkeley)

Why Canadians Love Immigration and Americans Aren't So Sure (Berkeley)

Banatao Auditorium, Sutardja Dai Hall

Americans are deeply divided about migration policy and have limited appetite for increasing immigration. 

MORE

In contrast, Canada’s government has increased its immigration targets; the ruling party won in part due to a campaign promise to resettle thousands of Syrian refugees; and citizens largely support these policies. Why do Canadians seem to love immigration while Americans aren’t so sure? 

Speaker: Irene Bloemraad
Professor, Sociology; Thomas Garden Barnes Chair of Canadian Studies; Faculty Director, Berkeley Interdisciplinary Migration Initiative.

Irene Bloemraad’s research examines how immigrants become incorporated into the political and civic life of their adopted countries and the consequences of immigration for politics and understandings of citizenship.

MORE

Join the UC Berkeley Canadian Studies community for their regular lunchtime colloquium series. This lecture's topic is Using Captain Vancouver’s Voyage To Examine What Is Accomplished By Reconsidering And Rewriting The Past, by Prof. Lee Gulyas of Western Washington University.

This talk regards the earliest mapmakers, “Whose imaginations were usually more reliable than their sources,” and how they portrayed what would become Canada as an amorphous blob of unknown dangers. Everything west of the Atlantic was imagined and scrawled in, worthy of exploration only for either gold or the legendary Strait of Anian/Northwest Passage. In 1791, Captain George Vancouver’s four-and-a-half year expedition to map the Pacific coast of the North American continent changed the course of history for Europe, the Americas, and the indigenous nations. Yet Canada is still very much a blend of fact and fiction. As we consider the narrativization of history in Canadian literature, we will be doing our own mapping by examining history alongside two literary works that are fascinating by their merit and strategies in their own right, but also raise important questions about history, gender, ethnicity, place, work, justice, politics, and regionalism. These works explore landscape, imagination, and identity to point to larger questions of history, story, and what is accomplished by reconsidering and rewriting the past.  

Speaker Lee Gulyas is a Senior Lecturer in the English Department and affiliated faculty in Canadian-American Studies at Western Washington University. 

Free and open to the public!

St. Lawrence Quartet with Stanford Live (virtual)

St. Lawrence Quartet with Stanford Live (virtual)

In their first appearance together since before the pandemic, the St. Lawrence String Quartet will play—in a masked and socially distanced performance—the entirety of Haydn’s String Quartet Op. 76 No. 5.

MORE

The film will be more than a virtual concert, though. Through interviews with members of the quartet, behind the scenes footage, and a peek into the personal lives of the quartet, the film tells the story of how the quartet has had to adapt its creative process amid months of COVID-19 restrictions that has resulted in their longest hiatus in the quartet’s 30-year history.

On Tuesday, September 10th, the wait will be over….The Testaments, Margaret Atwood’s highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale, is revealed. The momentous literary event will be celebrated with an exclusive live cinema broadcast, as Fane Productions present an evening with the Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor.

The publication of Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985 and the current, Emmy Award-winning television series have created a cultural phenomenon, as handmaids have become a symbol of women’s rights and a protest against misogyny and oppression. Live from the London stage, Atwood will be interviewed by broadcaster and author Samira Ahmed in a conversation spanning the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works, and why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story, 34 years later.

With exclusive readings from the new book by special guests, this will be an unmissable and intimate event with Atwood, spotlighting her signature insight, humour and intellect.

17th Annual International Ocean Film Festival

17th Annual International Ocean Film Festival

The Canadian Consulate in San Francisco is supporting the 17th Annual International Ocean Film Festival from July 30th to August 9th.

MORE

The mission of the International Ocean Film Festival (IOFF) is to save our oceans one film at a time.

This year, two Canadian films will be featured virtually.

The Mill 

52 minutes

IOFF Environmental Award Winner - West Coast Premiere

Near a First Nations community in Nova Scotia, a paper mill had to stop in January the discharging of waste into noxious ponds that polluted both air and water for decades. The company proposed piping its effluent into the ocean, but met strong opposition from both the native community and fisherfolk. If the mill closes, others will also, putting over 10,000 jobs at risk. Resolving such conflicts is becoming a challenging worldwide problem.

Under Thin Ice

98 minutes

Extreme divers, Jill Heinerth and Mario Cyr, explore above and below northern Canada’s ice sheet. It is a hunting ground for beluga whales and narwhals, for walruses and seals that depend on the ice to nurture their young, and for polar bears who live on the ice most of their lives. They all feed on a plethora of sea life, but as the ice melts more each year, their entire ecosystem has come under threat.

Commemoration Day Sunrise Ceremony

Commemoration Day Sunrise Ceremony

Honour the Battle of the Somme with a sunrise ceremony tradition, hosted by US Branch #25 of the Royal Canadian Legion, representing the San Francisco Bay Area.

MORE

While the first day of July is a celebration in most of Canada, for Newfoundland and Labrador it is also a day for sombre remembrance as it is also Commemoration Day (also known as Memorial Day), when we remember the tragically destructive events of July 1st, 1916.

It is the opening day of the Battle of the Somme, when 806 members of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment climbed out of their trenches and went "over the top" at 8:45am as part of the battle of Beaumont-Hamel. In less than an hour, the regiment was devastated, most killed or wounded within the first 20 minutes of the battle. The next morning, only 68 soldiers answered roll call. Commemoration Day was established in 1917, just one year later.

After Confederation with Canada, the province of Newfoundland and Labrador continued the tradition of Commemoration Day during the morning of July 1st, and reserved the remainder of the day to celebrate Canada Day. 

The 45 minutes service will be broadcast on Zoom. 

RSVP here for live sunrise ceremony at 6am PST. 

RSVP here for replay at 10am PST.

Red Violin, with Composer Joshua Bell, and live orchestra (and Canadian Director, François Girard) at Festival Napa Valley

Red Violin, with Composer Joshua Bell, and live orchestra (and Canadian Director, François Girard) at Festival Napa Valley

First Republic Bank Stage at Lincoln Theater

World Premiere! Joshua Bell performs the Red Violin with live orchestra while film is screened. Special appearance by the Red Violin's director, Canadian filmmaker François Girard.

MORE

Arguably the world’s most famous violinist, Joshua Bell returns to Festival Napa Valley to perform the beautiful music he recorded for the Academy Award-winning 1998 film, The Red Violin. Audiences will enjoy a truly immersive experience: watching the gripping film on screen while, for the first time, Bell performs composer John Corigliano’s lush, Oscar-winning score in its entirety with orchestra.

The Red Violin follows a mysterious antique violin as it travels through four centuries, impacting all who come in contact with it — from its creation by a legendary violinmaker in 1681 Cremona, Italy — to a present-day auction house, where it draws the eye of an expert appraiser (played by Samuel L. Jackson). Festival Orchestra NAPA performs with Bell under the baton of esteemed conductor Michael Stern. Making tonight’s concert particularly special is the appearance of the film’s director, Canadian filmmaker François Girard, and Corigliano, who celebrates his 80th birthday this year.

Tickets required.

Dawson City: Frozen in Time at the SF Silent Film Festival

Dawson City: Frozen in Time at the SF Silent Film Festival

The Roxie Theater - 3117 16th Street, San Francisco

See footage from a trove of 500 films lost after burial in the permafrost in the 1929. Co-presented by the San Francisco Silent Film Festival.

MORE

This meditation on cinema’s past from Decasia director Bill Morrison pieces together the bizarre true history of a long-lost collection of 533 nitrate film prints from the early 1900s. Located just south of the Arctic Circle, Dawson City was settled in 1896 and became the center of the Canadian Gold Rush that brought 100,000 prospectors to the area. It was also the final stop for a distribution chain that sent prints and newsreels to the Yukon. The films were seldom, if ever, returned. The now-famous Dawson City Collection was uncovered in 1978 when a bulldozer working its way through a parking lot dug up a horde of film cans. Morrison draws on these permafrost-protected, rare silent films and newsreels, pairing them with archival footage, interviews, historical photographs, and an enigmatic score by Sigur Rós collaborator and composer Alex Somers. Dawson City: Frozen Time depicts the unique history of this Canadian Gold Rush town by chronicling the life cycle of a singular film collection through its exile, burial, rediscovery, and salvation.

From the band:

Our album "Perfect Strangers" peaked at #10 on the iTunes new jazz releases best-seller list and has received favourable reviews around the Bay Area and on blogs. The album was recorded primarily at Phase One Studios in Toronto (6 of 11 songs), with Toronto musicians and producers. One of the tracks is a French-English song co-written with another Canadian songwriter. Our first music video was shot entirely in Toronto. Although I am now based in the Bay Area, we love going to Toronto to make music and do so every year. We will be playing songs from the album, some new material and some covers. You can watch our videos and stream the full album for free on our website www.23rdhr.com

One can find at the basis of Péloquin's paintings a multitude of particles that appear to burst and harmonize the space.
