14:00 GEMMA BOVERY (new) @ The Flicks 1
 
event pic

Martin, an ex-Parisian and well-heeled hipster passionate about Gustave Flaubert, settles into a Norman village as a baker, and sees an English couple moving into a small farm nearby. Not only are the names of the new arrivals Gemma and Charles Bovery, but their behavior also seems to be inspired by Flaubert’s heroes.

A transmogrified Flaubert, recast, upturned and rich with observational and satirical contemporary details. - GLOBE AND MAIL

Thanks to actor Fabrice Luchini’s befuddled sweetness in every moment, Fontaine and her entire cast create more comic moments than tragic ones, which make the exercise feel surprisingly fun. - CANADA.COM

16:00 ONE COUCH AT A TIME (2013) @ The Flicks 2
 
event pic

One Couch at a Time follows ‘CouchSurfing evangelist’ Alexandra Liss across 6 continents, 21 countries, CouchSurfing for 7 months in the first full-length feature ever to document the CouchSurfing movement and this emerging ‘age of sharing’ we are entering.

One Couch at a Time is the first full-length feature documentary on the CouchSurfing movement and this emerging “age of sharing” we are entering. The film follows protagonist and veteran CouchSurfer, Alexandra Liss, through 21 countries, 6 subcontinents, for 7 months using CouchSurfing.org. As we explore our inner and societal limits, this film pushes us to ask ourselves and our peers “what would YOU be willing to share with a stranger?”

CouchSurfing is a planet in this “sharing economy” galaxy- and the platform for which this entire film takes place. Alexandra also explores crowd funding, co-working, ridesharing, and gifting at the ultimate sharing society – Burningman! We focus, however, on the micro by capturing the magical, heart-warming, serendipitous exchanges that occur one couch at a time.

Each host and traveler along the way provide unique experiences becoming sub-subjects illustrating the incredible exchange. Alexandra, who begins her journey full of confusion, ends up learning lessons of a lifetime with the help of a few worldly friends.

We learn, that by embracing the “age of sharing” mentality is to have access to methods which make the pursuit of your passions and dreams merely a couch away. Featured interviews include sharing economy expert Rachel Botsman, founder of Burningman Larry Harvey, sacred economist Charles Eisenstein, and of course, the founder of Couchsurfing, Casey Fenton.

16:00 KILL THE MESSENGER (new) @ The Flicks 1
 
event pic

Two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner (The Bourne Legacy) leads an all-star cast in a dramatic thriller based on the remarkable true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb.

Webb stumbles onto a story which leads to the shady origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation’s streets… and further alleges that the CIA was aware of major dealers who were smuggling cocaine into the U.S., and using the profits to arm rebels fighting in Nicaragua.

Despite warnings from drug kingpins and CIA operatives to stop his investigation, Webb keeps digging to uncover a conspiracy with explosive implications.

His journey takes him from the prisons of California to the villages of Nicaragua to the highest corridors of power in Washington, D.C. – and draws the kind of attention that threatens not just his career, but his family and his life.

Michael Cuesta’s movie, notable for a fine lead performance by Jeremy Renner as Webb, is capable and suggestive but it never attains definitive proof. - THE AGE (AUSTRALIA)

Kill The Messenger is a sturdy addition to cinema’s esteemed investigative journalism sub-genre. - FILMINK

Renner brings a dogged yet ebullient quality to Webb. It’s a terrific, wound-up yet thoughtful performance that conveys a sense of conviction with an undercurrent of fragility. - SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

18:00 LOVE, ROSIE (new) @ The Flicks 2+3
 
event pic

Since the moment they met at age 5, Rosie (Lily Collins) and Alex (Sam Claflin) have been best friends, facing the highs and lows of growing up side by side. A fleeting shared moment, one missed opportunity, and the decisions that follow send their lives in completely different directions.

As each navigates the complexities of life, love, and everything in between, they always find their way back to each other – but is it just friendship, or something more?

Based on Cecelia Ahern’s bestselling novel, LOVE, ROSIE is a heart-warming, modern comedy-of-errors posing the ultimate question: do we really only get one shot at true love? The Press

Cynics should steer clear, but Love, Rosie boasts two charming leads, a genuinely sweet tenor and such a warm blend of humor and heart that it could easily become a new teen favorite. - WE GOT THIS COVERED

Managed to win me over with a combination of British charm, clever writing, and well-executed performances. - CINEMABLEND.COM

18:00 Exclusive: CAMBODIAN SON (last week) @ The Flicks 1
 
event pic

CAMBODIAN SON, features the almost incredible story and spoken-word poetry of Kosal Khiev, from prisoner in America to world-class poet in Cambodia.

For this movie is a separate admission of $3.50 per screening.

Cambodian Son documents the life of deported poet, Kosal Khiev after receiving the most important performance invitation of his career—to represent the Kingdom of Cambodia at the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad. Kosal would travel to London having only taken two flights prior; first, as a 1-yearold refugee child whose family fled Cambodia and, then as a 32-year-old criminal “alien” forcibly returned to Cambodia in 2011.

The film follows a volatile yet charming and talented young man who struggles to find his footing amongst a new freedom that was granted only through his deportation. Kosal’s London representation is a triumphant moment for many people in his life, both in America and Cambodia.

The film traces the impact and significance of this moment for Kosal, his friends, family, mentors and a growing international fan base.

Armed only with memorized verses, he must face the challenges of being a deportee while navigating his new fame as Phnom Penh’s premiere poet. After the performances end and the London stage becomes a faint memory, Kosal is once again left alone to answer the central question in his life: “How do you survive when you belong nowhere?”

20:00 KRAFTIDIOTEN (IN ORDER OF DISAPPEARANCE) (new) @ The Flicks 3
 
event pic

Introverted and hard-working snow plow driver Nils has just been named Citizen of The Year, when he receives news that his son has died of a heroin overdose.

Disbelieving the official report, Nils soon uncovers evidence of the young man’s murder – a victim in a turf war between the local crime boss, known as “The Count”, and his Serbian rivals.

Armed with heavy machinery and a good dose of beginner’s luck, Nils embarks upon a quest for revenge that soon escalates into a full-blown underworld gang war, with the body count spiralling ever higher and higher. The Press

In Order Of Disappearance is a wonderful slice of crime cinema; grimly hilarious, consistently beautiful and marvellously performed. - WE GOT THIS COVERED

While it’s hard not to trace the icy bloodletting and gangster banter back to American cinema, the frostiness of Skarsgård’s performance remains resolutely Scandinavian. - OBSERVER (UK)

It’s an incredibly satisfying role in which to encounter Skarsgard, who fashions himself as the human equivalent of his unstoppable snowplow, confronting even the most seemingly insurmountable obstacles head-on. - VARIETY

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.

The Killing Fields is a suspenseful and exhilarating experience, a journey through an apocalyptic landscape that features one shocking image after another. Watch, and you'll see why the film is so acclaimed and a must-see for everybody in Cambodia; locals as visitors.

"Kar Chabphtaem" by various artists @ Garuda Khmer Restaurant
 
event pic

Chabphtaem - New Beginnings, the future, a path which lies, as yet, untraveled. Culture entwined though culture becomes the herald which brings the dawn of a new and unknown year. Time is a concept that exists because of our belief in it. It marks events, teaches, brings fear, joy and excitement. This exhibition celebrates new beginnings, the smudge which time leaves upon our lives and bold new adventures in all their terror and glory.

The exhibition consists of several local and international artists from a diverse array of cultural and artistic backgrounds. Artists were asked to predict what this year would ultimately illustrate to them. Is it destined to be much the same, perhaps life shattering, almost certainly enlightening, probably somewhat brutal and scatted with liberal pinches of the chaotic…?
