Upcoming News and Events at The Winnipeg Film Group and Cinemetheque:
WINNIPEG: A CITY IN SEARCH OF ITSELF
SAT FEB 5 at 2 PM | FREE ADMISSION
A number of local filmmakers have created portraits of Winnipeg as a community seen through its multicultural life, history, and urban life – these portraits are both critical and reflective. It is a proud city and yet hard on itself on the same time. In conjunction with the Mediated Cities Symposium, we present a screening of works about Winnipeg followed by a discussion which reflects on the city and its perception of itself. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion about Winnipeg and its view of the environment.
NEGATIVIPEG - DIR. MATT RANKIN | 2010 | 16 MIN - Negativipeg tells the story of Rory Lepine who shot to herostratic fame in 1985 when he attacked Winnipeg rock legend Burton Cummings with a beer bottle. The film has much to say about Winnipeg’s view of itself.
TED BARYLUK’S GROCERY - DIR. JOHN PASKIEVICH AND MICHAEL MIRUS | 1982 | 10 MIN - Ukrainian-Canadian Ted Baryluk's grocery store has been a fixture in Winnipeg's North End for over 20 years. In this photo study, Ted talks about his store, the customers who have come and gone and the social changes his multicultural neighbourhood has seen.
INTERSECTIONS: SELKIRK AND MCGREGOR - DIR. KEVIN NIKKEL | 2008 | 27 MIN - Based on a six part documentary series about landmark Winnipeg, Intersections takes us to Winnipeg's north end. Whether hearing the history of the Ukrainian community, or aboriginal leaders tells their visions for the future, this episode proves that Selkirk and McGregor is still the hub of the north end.
WAITING FOR THE PARADE - DIR. PAULA KELLY | 2008 | 7 MIN - Waiting for the Parade transforms the 75th Anniversary celebration of Winnipeg in 1948 into a provocative discourse on decades of progress and regress, cynicism and hope.
FM YOUTH - DIR. STÉPHANE OYSTRYK | 2009 | 2 MIN - Three Franco-Manitoban youths wander the lifeless streets of Winnipeg's "French Quarter", St. Boniface, in search of cheap thrills. Their boredom soon turns into frustration towards a community that's too uptight and a culture that's struggling to define itself.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the following participants- filmmakers Paula Kelly, Stéphane Oystryk, Kevin Nikkel, John Paskievich, and Matt Rankin (through Skype in Montreal) as well as Terri Fuglem, associate professor in the University of Manitoba Department of Architecture. Film professor Howard Curle will moderate.
Our presentation of Winnipeg: A City in Search of Itself has been generously sponsored by the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Architecture and Department of English, Film & Theatre and the upcoming Mediated Cities Conference Feb 3 – 5.
