If you enjoyed the three day pastry contest in France in The Kings of Pastry, then you will love this entertaining story of 24 year old gourmet chef Paul Liebrandt who concocts incredible mouth watering dishes to build his reputation in the cut throat world of haute cuisine in New York City. The film follows Liebrandt over a decade and reveals his creative process in the kitchen, as well as the extreme hard work, long hours, and dedication it takes to be a culinary artist. In 2000, Chef Paul Liebrandt was awarded 3 stars by the New York Times - at 24 he was the youngest to receive such acclaim.

DIR. ASIF KAPADIA | 2011 | UK/FRANCE/USA | 106 MIN
Winner of the Sundance World Documentary Award, this riveting story is the best sports film since the Muhammad Ali documentary When We Were Kings. Senna is a documentary with the pace of a thriller, a story of motors and machines that is beyond compelling because of the intensely human story it tells.
Brazil's Ayrton Senna was the boy genius of Formula One racing, winner of three world championships before dying in a crash in 1994 at age 34, a driver current and former Formula One racers recently voted the greatest who ever lived. Far more than a film for F1 fans, this remarkable film includes intimate home movie footage, shots taken from inside Senna's car while he was driving, and riveting footage of frequently tempestuous drivers-only meetings held before each race.

THE BLACK LODGE, 305 - 100 Arthur Street
Slide projection performances by Doreen Girard w / Slattern (Julia Ryckman)
16mm films & projection performance by Irene Bindi w / Aston Coles
At the geographic centre of the continent, Winnipeg is a thoroughfare and point of convergence of many kinds: railway paths, bird migratory routes, and as the supernatural centre of the land for many aboriginal peoples and spiritualists. Hailing from this, the coldest English-speaking city in the world, Doreen Girard and Irene Bindi developed Winter Night. Their similar processes develop through collections of found technology, materials, and stories. Both rely heavily on the Manitoba winter for assistance in their creations.
Join Winnipeg artists – Irene Bindi, Aston Coles, Doreen Girard and Julia Ryckman for a program of live music and moving images inspired by Manitoba’s cold winters, grim histories, and supernatural stories.
Sontainen, dir. Doreen Girard and Julia Ryckman, 2010, Canada, 15 min.
Animation through a hand-designed animation reel and manipulated slide projector, using focus pulls to “flip” through the images. A portrayal of a Finn named Tom Sukanen who, during the Great Depression in Saskatchewan, built a ship called the Sontainen in order to return to his homeland after losing his family. Instead, Sukanen’s efforts only landed him in a mental institution. Winnipeg’s musical femme fatale Slattern will be performing a live score consisting of music composed specifically for this performance.
Baphomet, dir. Doreen Girard, 2010, Canada, 5 min.
Through manipulation of a Kodak slide projector, hidden images are revealed.
Hagioscope, dir. Doreen Girard and Julia Ryckman, 2010, Canada, 15 min.
A mythical history of the medieval anchoress, told live, through the use of a hand built magic lantern. Live musical performance by Julia Ryckman.
Incubation, dir. Doreen Girard, 2010, Canada, 9 min.
A series of desolate dreamscapes projected and animated through a repurposed slide projector. Music by Thergothon.
Have I Done No Hurt, dir. Doreen Girard, 2008, Canada, 10 min.
A bible story picture book becomes an ecstatic apparition in the form of slides and tape loops.
Kick Shutter Furs, dir. Irene Bindi, 2010, Canada, 12 min
Outtakes from a winter coat commercial are edited into a hand-painted nightmare. Kick Shutter utilizes a secondary shutter effect by controlling power to the projector through Bindi’s kick pedal, creating flicker. Live sound by Aston Coles & Irene Bindi.
Celestinorosapalido, dir. Irene Bindi, 2010, Canada, 11 min
In this live 16mm performance the kick pedal is again used as an additional shutter controlling speed and flicker. The film utilizes a combination of colour footage (both found and shot by Bindi) with timed periods of blackness from the 2nd shutter to intensify a progression of colours and movement. Live sound by Irene Bindi and Aston Coles.
