King’s Film Society Presents

Faces Places
FRANCE, 2017
French w/ English subtitles
89 minutes

Now in her eighties, Agnès Varda remains the world’s most youthful filmmaker. Her latest nonfiction film is an inspired collaboration with JR, the mysterious French street artist. Like many of Varda’s works, Faces Places is a kind of travelogue in which the wonder of each locale visited is only as potent as the populace whose existence affects it. Their plan is simple: Varda and JR roam from place to place in JR’s truck, which is decorated to resemble a camera. In each place they visit, they meet people — coal miners, cheese makers, a Herculean farmer — and JR creates immense monochromatic portraits of them. Our endearing duo then affixes these portraits to various edifices all over town, quite literally, merging faces with places.

The landscape Varda and JR traverse becomes a visual record of their encounters. Among Faces Places’ most amusing refrains is Varda’s annoyance at JR’s refusal to remove his sunglasses, which she says reminds her of Jean-Luc Godard in the ’60s. The contrast between Varda’s French New Wave cohort, who represents her six-decade legacy, and JR, who embodies her vibrant present, speaks volumes about the scope of this amazing auteur’s durability and persistence of vision.

 

“What emerges from them, and from the relationship between the 88-year-old filmmaker and the thirty-something photographer, is a poignant meditation on everything from self-revelation in the age of the selfie to change in rural France. This rich cross-generational exchange speaks to the persistence of French cinematic culture – Varda’s relationship with the pioneering filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard is a recurring theme – while the doc itself is a delight, subtle, touching and entertaining.”
–The Globe and Mail

“Agnes Varda is almost 90 years old and she is still making films. That alone should be cause for dancing in the streets. But wait, there’s more: Agnes Varda is almost 90 years old and she is still making fantastic films. Searching, compassionate, provocative, funny, sad ones. This is one of them. You should see it, and then go dancing in the streets.”

THE POST

King’s Film Society Presents:

THE POST


Academy Award Nominee: Best Picture

Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in The Post, a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), as they race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers – and their very freedom – to help bring long-buried truths to light.

PG-13 | 1h 56min | Biography, Drama, History


Spielberg offers a tight, lucid and highly satisfying account of the Pentagon Papers from the point of view of the Post and its publisher, Kay Graham.
–The Globe and Mail

The standout is Bob Odenkirk as Ben Bagdikian, the kind of old-school reporter who wears out the soles of his shoes tracking down a scoop.
– The Chicago Sun Times

This is Streep’s movie, and not because she is typically excellent. She owns it because Graham is the only character on a journey of self-discovery.

H’SAO
Mar 22 @ 7:30 pm

Originally from Chad, H’SAO’s music mixes traditional African harmonies and rhythms with gospel, soul, pop, and R&B influences to create a fresh, warm and exciting sound that is rooted in masterful a capella singing.

Based in Montreal, H’SAO’s powerful live performances have been capturing the hearts of small audiences and large crowds alike since 2001. The band has always been passionate about sharing its unique blend of modern sound and traditional African musical influences. H’SAO has traveled the world, delivering electrifying performances, launching three innovative albums and, most of all, developing a musical signature that spans several genres and thus transcends the “world music” category.

At first, voices – but what voices! – were their only instrument. Then, brothers Caleb (guitar), Mossbass (bass) and Izra L (keyboard) along with their childhood friend Dono (drums) added musical instruments. Their father dubs them Hirondelle (swallow) in honour of the birds that are always searching for higher ground. H’SAO makes use of their vocal skills to compose heartfelt compositions with beautiful a cappella harmonies, developing arrangements to be later transposed for varied instrumentation.

Onstage, the band sets itself apart through energetic performances, punctuated by catchy choreography and warm interactions with the audience.

Ten years after the release of its self-titled album and four years after Vol 235, the band launched Oria in 2013. The level of social commitment expressed on this third album is a tribute the impressive journey that lead up to its creation. Nominated for World Music Album of the Year at the Gala de l’ADISQ, Oria is an invitation to iscover the boundless vocal talent of H’SAO and to experience a more subdued, masterful and varied instrumental universe. Its poignant songs address peace, social justice, religion, love and other universal themes.

THE SHAPE OF WATER
Mar 23 @ 7:00 pm

King’s Film Society Presents

THE SHAPE OF WATER

Nominated for 13 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress


Elisa is a mute, isolated woman who works as a cleaning lady in a hidden, high-security government laboratory in 1962 Baltimore. Her life changes forever when she discovers the lab’s classified secret — a mysterious, scaled creature from South America that lives in a water tank. As Elisa develops a unique bond with her new friend, she soon learns that its fate and very survival lies in the hands of a hostile government agent and a marine biologist.

Director:  Guillermo del Toro
Stars Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Doug Jones, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Octavia Spencer.

R | 2h 3min | Adventure, Drama, Fantasy

“The Shape of Water” is a wonder to behold. Magical, thrilling and romantic to the core, a sensual and fantastical fairy tale with moral overtones, it’s a film that plays by all the rules and none of them, going its own way with fierce abandon. More than that, “Shape of Water” is both grounded in the fertile soil of genre filmmaking and elevated to unexpected heights by the transcendent imagination of director and co-writer Guillermo del Toro.”
– The Los Angeles Times

“Del Toro weaves together his influences so finely, so delicately, that the product of his handiwork feels entirely new: We recognize the pieces, and we cannot mistake the author, but cast in the warm, beryl glow of Dan Laustsen’s gorgeous cinematography, we feel as if we’re seeing them afresh. That’s the magic of the movies, and, more importantly, the magic of del Toro.”  – Paste Magazine

King’s Film Society Presents

The Square

SWEDEN, 2017
English/Swedish w/ English subtitles
145 minutes
Comedy/Drama
Winner of the Palme d’Or

Swedish provocateur Ruben Östlund, the director of Force Majeure, returns with The Square, one of his most audacious pieces to date and winner of the prestigious Palme d’Or at Cannes. A spot-on, no-holds-barred satire of the postmodern art world, the film follows Christian (Claes Bang), the self-centred, and hopelessly befuddled curator of Sweden’s most cutting- edge art museum. Christian’s attempts to promote his exhibits are deflected by personal misfortunes and culminate with a less than successful online campaign.

The Square is full of brilliant and dazzling set pieces, including an onstage interview gone awry and a performance piece gone even more
so. Östlund refuses to score easy points, outlining the challenges that face artists trying to examine the increasingly complex and absurd world we live in and dealing with the privileged members of the audience who consider art only as a social statement or financial investment.
The Square is a poignant satirical drama reflecting our times. Also starring Elizabeth Moss and Dominic West.

“The Square is darkly amusing, but it’s also bracingly honest in its absurdity, and that’s what kept me coming back to each one of its wonderfully knotty scenarios even months after seeing it.”
–The Atlantic

“Swedish writer-director Ruben Östlund takes modern society’s temperature and finds it dangerously overheated in the madly ambitious and frequently disquieting The Square.”
The Hollywood Reporter

TOSCA: Metropolitan Opera
Mar 31 @ 2:00 pm

Giacomo Puccini’s

Tosca

Sir David McVicar’s “smashing new production” is “a grand triumph” (Huffington Post), featuring an exciting cast led by soprano Sonya Yoncheva in the title role of the fiery diva and Vittorio Grigolo as her passionate lover, Cavaradossi. The pair are “youthful, ardent, and innocent … their duets electric, their kisses hot and numerous” (Wall Street Journal). Yoncheva’s sound is “richly textured and shimmering,” and “Grigolo’s Mario is a true hothead … complete with thrilling top notes” (New York Times). Željko Lučić is “an imposing figure with a voice to match” (Wall Street Journal) as the villainous police chief, Scarpia, and Emmanuel Villaume conducts.

Premiere: Teatro Costanzi, Rome, 1900. Puccini’s melodrama about a volatile diva, a sadistic police chief, and an idealistic artist has offended and thrilled audiences for more than a century. Critics, for their part, have often had problems with Tosca’s rather grungy subject matter, the directness and intensity of its score, and the crowd-pleasing dramatic opportunities it provides for its lead roles. But these same aspects have made Tosca one of a handful of iconic works that seem to represent opera in the public imagination. Tosca’s popularity is further secured by a superb and exhilarating dramatic sweep, a driving score of abundant melody and theatrical shrewdness, and a career-defining title role.
