18:30 LIVE DIE REPEAT: EDGE OF TOMORROW (new) @ The Flicks 2
 

PG-13 | 113 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

The epic action of “Edge of Tomorrow” unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.

Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop-forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again.

But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

20:00 Facing Genocide (2010) @ Meta House

In August 2014, the ECCC sentenced the top two surviving cadres of the 1970s Khmer Rouge regime to life in jail, delivering a semblance of justice for one of the darkest and bloodiest chapters of the twentieth century.

Khmer Rouge "Brother Number Two" Nuon Chea, 88, and former President Khieu Samphan, 83, were found guilty of crimes against humanity orchestrated by the regime as part of its ultra-Maoist revolution from 1975-1979.

FACING GENOCIDE (2010, 94 min) follows Khieu Samphan two years before his arrest in 2007. It’s a close portrait of the man who made Pol Pot's terror regime possible.

20:30 SUITE FRANÇAISE (new) @ The Flicks 1
 
event pic

107 min | Drama, Romance, War

Based on the best-selling book by Irene Nemirovsky and set during the German occupation of France in the 1940’s, Suite Française tells the story of Lucille Angellier as she awaits news from her husband, a prisoner of war.

As Parisian refugees pour into their small town, soon followed by a regiment of German soldiers who take up residence in the villagers’ homes, Lucile’s life is turned upside down – further complicated by the arrival of refined German officer, Bruno. A story of the power of love and the tragedy of war.

A sturdy enough but ultimately overpolite entry into the classic wartime women’s melodrama, in which war’s impact on the lonely heart is nearly as devastating as the havoc wreaked on limb and landscape. – GLOBE AND MAIL

As doomed wartime romances go, the film doesn’t offer anything particularly original. But with palpable tension and poignancy, Suite Francaise is fine filmmaking well worth watching. – TORONTO STAR

In Nazi-occupied France, the bucolic yet class-riven life of the small town of Bussy is turned upside down by the arrival of refugees from Paris and jackbooted soldiers from Berlin. – THE OBSERVER

An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill (Chris Pratt, Jurassic World) finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe.

To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits-Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer.

But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand-with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.

Sydney Schanberg is a New York Times journalist covering the civil war in Cambodia. Together with local representative Dith Pran, they cover some of the tragedy and madness of the war, in Phnom Penh.

When the American forces leave, Dith Pran sends his family with them, but stays behind himself to help Schanberg cover the event. As an American, Schanberg won't have any trouble leaving the country, but the situation is different for Pran; he's a local, and the Khmer Rouge are moving in.

21:00 The Fall of the house of Usher (1928) with the X-Pat Soundsystem @ Meta House
 
event pic

The pre-sound era produced some of the most beautiful, arresting films ever made. In August, Meta House and DJs from the X-PAT SOUNDSYSTEM invite you to watch the best silent horror movies, accompanied by a live mix of contemporary sounds and beats.

THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER (1928, 63 min) is less a fiction than the realization of some phantasmagoric alternative reality. It remains the most beautiful, and truly chilling, of horror movies. The screenplay for this flesh-crawlingly creepy film was written by Luis Buñuel, layering Spanish surrealism over Edgar Allan Poe’s American gothic.

Polish-born director Jean Epstein was heavily influenced by French Impressionism, as well as the conventions of German Expressionism. “The Fall of the House of Usher” is a heady mix of all these ingredients: a disorienting and disturbing tale of love, loss and decay.

The wide floors of the almost-empty sets conjure the deepest darkness, punctuated by a candle flame, or a glimpse of a bridal veil trailing from a coffin. The pained faces of Jean Debucourt as the artist Roderick and Marguerite Gance as his tortured bride convey melancholy more than fear.

With an average of one painting per week, 4 per month, 25 a year, Sothy has already created almost 500 paintings over the past 20 years. Enthusiast about his art - almost bulimic - Sothy is a very spontaneous painter.

"Scar" by Chat Piersath @ Java Café & Gallery
 
event pic

“‘Scar’ came about as the result of an impromptu residency with Chath Piersath. As we were going through older works at the gallery, he proposed to re-work them and add to their complexity or create new pieces entirely.

So, for two months he settled into one of the back rooms to do exactly that. Knowing that Chath is an articulate writer and poet I asked him to journal about his process during the residency. He is deeply honest about himself and his work.

Through the journals he offers an insight into his artistic process from the very practical challenge of finding decent paint in Phnom Penh to his philosophical struggle with nihilism.” (DL)

A selection of the new/old works together with his journals will be presented for the exhibition.
