“The Reel Al­ter­na­tive” ends this sea­son on Mon­day May 25 with “The Ne­ces­si­ties of Life”, a French-Inuk­ti­tut drama “Ce Qu’il Faut Pour Vivre”. It was Canada’s con­tender for the 2009 For­eign Lan­guage Os­car, and has won awards in Canada and the USA. It ex­plored the themes of iso­la­tion, tra­di­tional ver­sus mod­ern cul­tural con­cerns, and the value of her­itage and fam­ily. One re­viewer re­marked: In ex­am­in­ing what con­sti­tutes the ne­ces­si­ties of life, Pilon (the Di­rec­tor) presents a va­ri­ety of op­tions - com­mu­ni­ca­tion, be­long­ing, ac­cep­tance and fam­ily. But chief among them is dig­nity.” Rated PG, it shows at 7:30 pm in the Napier The­atre.

Have you seen the “Man­dala” art exhibit? Did you know that the tra­di­tional man­dala is de­signed as a cir­cle en­closed by a square with four doors or open­ings which lead north, east, south and west. Many so­ci­eties in the world have pro­duced vari­a­tions on the man­dala to cel­e­brate life and his­tory. The artists in this ex­hi­bi­tion present per­sonal man­dalas, ref­er­enc­ing top­ics such as ar­chae­ol­ogy, zo­ol­ogy, botany, spir­i­tu­al­ism, and cul­tural di­ver­sity.

The Dis­play Case fea­tures cur­rent works by mem­bers of Cot­ton­wood Clay­works. You may be tempted to try your hand in the next se­ries of classes!
