Centuries of aristocratic patronage established Paris as a city known for its fine dressmakers, milliners, tailors and shoemakers. By the 19th century, the entire French industry had a reputation for quality design – something was chic by the mere virtue of being French!
Copied or pirated around the world, the Haute Couture industry was at the centre of international style delineation until the rise of ready-to-wear in the 1960s.

CINESERIES - COLD CASE HAMMARSKJOLD
Oct 09, 2019 7:30 PM Oct 09, 2019 9:00 PM
CINESERIES - presents Cold Case Hammarskjold – October 9
Galaxy Cinemas, Cambridge Centre
Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Belgium ? 2019 ? Documentary ? 2h 8m
Director: Mads Brügger
In 1961, United Nations secretary-general Dag Hammarskjöld’s plane mysteriously crashed, killing Hammarskjöld and most of the crew. With the case still unsolved 50-plus years later, Danish journalist, filmmaker, and provocateur Mads Brügger (The Red Chapel, The Ambassador) leads us down an investigative rabbit hole to unearth the truth. Scores of false starts, dead ends, and elusive interviews later, Brügger and his sidekick, Swedish Göran Björkdahl, begin to sniff out something more monumental than anything they’d initially imagined. In his signature agitprop style, Brügger becomes both filmmaker and subject, challenging the very nature of truth by “performing” the role of truth seeker. As Brügger uncovers a critical secret that could send shockwaves around the world, we realize that sometimes absurdity and irony are the emboldening ingredients needed to confront what’s truly sinister.

CINESERIES - AND THE BIRDS RAINED DOWN
Oct 30, 2019 7:30 PM Oct 30, 2019 9:00 PM
CineSeries: And The Birds Rained Down – October 30 Cambridge Centre 355 Hespeler Rd., Cambridge

Canada ? 2019 ? Drama ? 1h 27m
Director: Louise Archambault

As acclaimed director Louise Archambault’s elegiac and charming And the Birds Rained Down opens, we meet three hermits living in cabins in the Quebec countryside, miles from civilization. Tom (Rémy Girard), Charlie (Gilbert Sicotte), and Ted (Kenneth Welsh) fled society years ago, and have eked out a back-to-the-land existence, selling pot to the closest locals with help from local hotelier Stephen (Éric Robidoux).

But their lifestyle is increasingly endangered by nature, infirmity, and age. Ted collapses from a heart attack. Photographer/ researcher Ange-Aimee (Eve Landry) threatens to disrupt their lives when she starts looking for survivors of a catastrophic blaze that happened decades ago, most notably Ted, whose actions during the fire have assumed heroic stature.

A poignant meditation on the possibilities of living outside modernity, And the Birds Rained Down is a tribute to the need to live independently and on one’s own terms — and to those courageous enough to pursue this. (It’s also a cry for respect for people and their choices, regardless of age.) Driven by an astonishing cast boasting some of Quebec’s most esteemed performers — including Andrée Lachapelle, whose career stretches back to 1954 — the film features one of the most beautiful musical moments of the year, when Girard’s ailing musician Tom, coaxed into performing at a nearby club, delivers a soulful and heartbreaking rendition of one of Tom Waits’ best tunes.

FALL SEED COLLECTION + POSSIBLE PLANT BACKS AT rare
Nov 20, 2019 9:30 AM Nov 20, 2019 12:30 PM
See the rare trails while enjoying a guided hike with staff and other volunteers. While hiking we will be keeping an eye out for ripe seeds from desirable native plants. If found, seeds will be collected for use in the Native Plant Propagation Program. After the hike seeds will be sown into trays. If there is sufficient seed quantity, there may also be an opportunity for volunteers to become Plant Foster Parts (see below). If plants from last year are ready, we may also plant back native plants in restoration areas as we go.

Plant Foster Parents: care for seed trays at their own home until the plants are ready for transplant at approximately 4” tall. Most native seeds being collected require a period of cold stratification meaning trays would be fostered outside over the winter and would sprout in the spring. Foster Parents can then keep approximately 1/3 of the tray for their own gardens and bring the rest back to be planted back at rare!

Species identification will be taught on site as well as instruction on proper collection techniques. This is a great opportunity for those looking to gain in field experience with ecological restoration and become more familiar with flora of southern Ontario.

Price: C$0.00

CINESERIES - WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY
Nov 20, 2019 7:30 PM Nov 20, 2019 9:00 PM
CineSeries: Wild Nights with Emily – November 20
Galaxy Cinemas, Cambridge Centre
355 Hespeler Rd., Cambridge
USA ? 2018 ? Drama/History ? 1h 24m
Director: Madeleine Olnek

The poet Emily Dickinson’s persona, popularized since her death, has been that of a reclusive spinster – a delicate wallflower, too sensitive for this world. In this humorous drama, Molly Shannon captures the vivacious, irreverent side of Emily Dickinson that was covered up for years – most notably Emily’s lifelong romantic relationship with another woman (Susan Ziegler). After Emily’s death, a rivalry emerges when her brother’s mistress (Amy Seimetz) along with editor T.W. Higginson (Brett Gelman) published a book of Emily’s poems. Unique and surreal, WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY sheds new light on the life one of our most celebrated poets.

NOBODY’S PERFECT
Who is Lulabelle Latiffa? The 1st prize winner of Harriet Copeland’s new romantic fiction competition, that’s who! Leonard Luftus, a shy writer and statistician, finds it’s tricky to avoid a gender bias when the competition motto is 'For Women By Women.’ So, when Leonard’s pseudonym ‘Lulabelle’ wins, can he keep up appearances for the feminist publishing house, ‘Love Is All Round,’ despite deception, his unruly daughter Dee Dee and Gus, his rascally father? The chaos it all creates will have you laughing out loud!
