(Doc, 2016, US, 94 min)

Directors: Jon Betz, Taggart Siegel

Which future will you grow?
Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds. Worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind, these subtle flecks of life are the source of all existence. Like tiny time capsules, they contain the songs, sustenance, memories, and medicines of entire cultures. In a very real sense, they are life itself. This film brings into clear focus the beauty, hope, and magic that seeds represent for humanity at this critical time.

Angry Inuk
(Doc, 2016, Canada, 85 min)

Director: Alethea Arnaquq-Baril

An Inuk filmmaker takes a close look at the central role of seal hunting in the lives of the Inuit, the importance of the revenue they earn from sales of seal skins, and the negative impact that international campaigns against the seal hunt have had on their lives. Angry Inuk took home the People's Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival Canada's Top Ten Festival.

Seal hunting, a critical part of Inuit life, has been controversial for a long time. Now, a new generation of Inuit, armed with social media and their own sense of humour and justice, are challenging the anti-sealing groups and bringing their own voices into the conversation. Director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril joins her fellow Inuit activists as they challenge outdated perceptions of Inuit and present themselves to the world as a modern people in dire need of a sustainable economy.

La La Land
Comedy/Musical/Drama, 2016, US, 128 min, PG

Director: Damien Chazelle (Whiplash)

Here's to the fools who dream.
The movie that had everyone talking is finally here. Winner of six Oscars and nominated for 14 (tying with the most-nominated pictures ever before: All About Eve 1950 and Titanic 1997), it has also won a staggering 179 awards at film festivals around the world.

Sebastian, a jazz pianist, and Mia, as aspiring actress, are drawn together by their common desire to do what they love. But as success mounts they are faced with decisions that begin to fray the fragile fabric of their love affair, and the dreams they worked so hard to maintain in each other threaten to rip them apart.

TRAILER:


According to composer Justin Hurwitz, all the piano performance featured in the film was first recorded by pianist Randy Kerber during pre-production. Ryan Gosling then spent two hours a day, six days a week in piano lessons learning the music by heart. By the time filming had begun, Gosling was able to play all the piano sequences seen in the film without the use of a hand double or CGI.
