JCCV FILM NIGHT on Monday, January 29th at 7:00 pm

THE TWELVE CHAIRS

 

1970 (93 minutes); Directed by Melvin Kaminski, Starring Ron Moody, Dom DeLuise and Frank Langella

One of the funniest films of all time! The story is based on the Russian classic about a man whose mother confesses, on her deathbed, to having hidden the family fortune in the seat of one of a matched set of 12 chairs. She did this to hide her jewels from the recently victorious revolution. The story becomes a madcap chase across the whole of Russia looking for the chair.

Oh and by the way, the Director Melvin Kaminski is better known these days as Mel Brooks! ‘Nuff said!!

Please join us for a fun evening of cinema…schmoozing…discussing and generally having a good time! State of the Art projection, large screen & great sound!

Snacks and cold drinks included in the $10 price of admission.

Always a classic cartoon and newsreel prior to the feature!

BRIDE FLIGHT (BRUIDSVLUCHT)

 

Directed by: Ben Sombogaart (also directed de Tweeling (Twin Sisters)). 2 hr, 10 min.

If you haven’t seen this epic movie you are in for a real treat!

The scene is postwar Holland (1953). The war has left a lot of people at “loose ends”. Broken families have come to pass due to the loss of the colony of Indonesia, extraordinary war events, and a great flood.

The four main characters; Ada, Marjorie, and Esther emigrate to New Zealand where their prospective fiancées await them. Frank, a young man forced to relocate to Holland from a Japanese internment camp feels lost in his new home of Holland and decides to make a new life along with the three women.

Their stories intertwine beautifully as they look to discover new lives in the promised land of New Zealand.

If you like Dutch Cinema this one may floor you! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Please join us for a fun evening of cinema…schmoozing…discussing and generally having a good time! State of the Art projection, large screen & great sound!

Snacks and cold drinks included in the $10 price of admission.

Always a classic cartoon and newsreel prior to the feature!

Food For Thought Luncheon on Monday, January 15th

Topic: Memory Matters: Holocaust and Memory Studies at UVic

Speakers: Helga Thorson, Chair of the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies, and Students from UVic

Participants will discuss why the memory of the Holocaust matters in today¹s world. You will hear first-hand from students who have registered for the 2018 I-witness Field school, led by Dr. Helga Thorson, a four-week course on Holocaust memorialization in Europe. In addition, you will have the opportunity to meet the first cohort of students enrolled in the graduate-level Holocaust Studies stream in the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies at UVic who will tell you more about a memorialization project they are working on in conjunction with the “Servitengasse 1938” working group in Vienna, Austria. The students will not only discuss why memory matters, but they will explain how, through their interactions with this project, they are taking “matters of memory” into their own hands.

Where: Jewish Community Centre of Victoria, 3636 Shelbourne Street
