MARIANNE & LEONARD: Words of Love

Documentary, 2019, US, 97 min, 14A

Director: Nick Broomfield ("Kurt & Courtney" "Whitney: Can I Be Me")

This personal and romantic documentary starts on the Greek island of Hydra in 1960, where Leonard Cohen, then a struggling and unknown fiction writer, and Marianne Ihlen, a single mother with a young son, became part of community of expat artists, writers and musicians. Never-before-seen footage shot by Broomfield and others make for a unique portrait of an idyllic 1960's bohemia -- a time that left a lasting imprint on both Marianne and Leonard, whose friendship would last another fifty years before their deaths in 2016.

ONE MORE MOVIE NIGHT STILL TO COME IN OCTOBER!



SHOWING ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 28th:


GIFT
Documentary, 2019, Canada, 83 min, PG

Director: Robin McKenna

The imagination creates the future.
Inspired by Lewis Hyde’s beloved classic The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World, GIFT is a richly cinematic film, interweaving character‐driven stories. On North America's Pacific Northwest Coast, a young indigenous man undertakes the elaborate preparations for a potlatch - to make a name for himself by giving everything away. In Rome, Italy, a factory occupied by migrant families is transformed into a living museum, protected by a barricade of art : a model of resistance, and an invaluable gift. In the pirate utopia of Burning Man, a mutant bumblebee art car distributes honey in a post-­apocalyptic desert landscape. Meanwhile, in Auckland, New Zealand, artist Lee Mingwei prepares to launch Sonic Blossom - a “transformative gift” of song.

"Robin McKenna’s intelligent and life affirming documentary Gift will make viewers consider how they give, receive, and create art in a fresh, new light... A wonderful plea for people to step outside of themselves and let art into their hearts and minds at every opportunity."
- Andrew Parker, The Gate

GIFT is a tribute to something that can’t be measured or counted, bought or sold. Exploring the parallels between artists’ work and a gift economy, it’s a reflection on the creative process, the reasons we “labour in service of our gifts”, and a celebration of the imagination.
