This Mountain Life

Synopsis: The awe that mountainous landscapes evoke is universal, yet most seldom venture into true wilderness. Martina and her 60 year-old mother Tania embark on a six-month trek through the treacherous Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Canada in a journey that has never before been completed by a duo. Their adventure is interspersed with beautifully crafted portraits of high-altitude human endurance and passion—an avalanche survivor, a snowshoe artist, a snowbound convent—that are by turns captivating and inspiring.

Music with a Mission

The Rosedale Valley String Orchestra, the Red Deer Youth and Community Orchestra and the Burman Symphony Orchestra will be joining forces yet again for their annual charity fundraising concert. This year we are hoping to raise money to dig two shallow wells in Kenya, Africa. Each well would provide fresh water to approximately 600 to 800 families for five years - a life changing event in their lives for sure. Established in 1990, the mission of A Better World is to help end global poverty by delivering sustainable foundations needed to improve lives through partnerships with local community leaders, development organizations, and government ministries around the world. For this particular project the students from all three orchestras hope to raise enough money to dig two shallow wells, thereby helping to create sustainable change in the lives of people living in poverty. At the concert we are planning to include a Silent Auction with an assortment of gift baskets raising money towards this fundraising effort. Something so simple as clean water can have a profound effect on the health and quality of life for those in need. Through your generosity the orchestra members hope to make a difference in the lives of the Kenyan people “one note at a time”.

Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP) - CMHA

WRAP™ is an eight week course that helps people incorporate wellness tools and strategies into their lives. Thousands of people, world-wide, have successfully used what they learned during a WRAP course to live happier and more satisfying lives while improving connections to their families, their friends, and their community.

Integrated Community Drumming Circles

What it does is act as a bridge to bring our diversities together. No previous drumming experience is needed. We do ask that you come with an open heart and be ready to be filled with good vibrations! All Things Dragonflies hosts a weekly circle: Mondays: Gaetz Memorial United Church- 7-9:00pm 4758-50 St. Red Deer Cost: Adults: (18-59): $20 per drum or $15 if you bring your own drum Students/Seniors(60+): $10 with or without a drum under 5yrs free.

WRAP now has been shown to be effective for people with chronic illnesses like diabetes and fibromyalgia or who want to work on weight management and so much more. This is a free course to attend.

Reel Movie Mondays: Diane

Hosted by the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery and Carnival Cinemas, in partnership with Film Circuit, presented by TIFF. Directed by Kent Jones, Not Yet Rated USA | 95 minutes | English, MK2 About the Film: In his narrative film debut, Kent Jones brings us the story of Diane, a widowed, altruistic septuagenarian whose life is dictated by the needs of others. She fills her days serving food to the homeless, visiting ailing friends in the last years of their lives, and, most centrally, desperately attempting to reach her drug-addicted son, despite his repeated efforts to push her away. But as these pieces of her existence begin to wither and fade, she finds herself forced to look at her own identity—and memories she’d sooner forget than face. Tickets are on sale now! Purchase your tickets online at www.reddeermuseum.com, stop by the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery in person, or give us a call at 403.309.8405. Tickets are $8 each for valid MAG Members, and $10 each for Non-Members, up until 4:30 pm on film nights. Tickets can be purchased at the door on film night for $10 each starting at 6 pm (cash only; no member rate at the door), pending availability.

Reel Movie Mondays: Woman At War

Hosted by the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery and Carnival Cinemas, in partnership with Film Circuit, presented by TIFF. Directed by Benedikt Erlingsson, Rated PG Iceland/France/Ukraine | 101 min. | Icelandic w/English subtitles, Mongrel Media About the Film: As a follow-up to his 2013 film Of Horses and Men, director Benedikt Erlingsson delivers Iceland’s nominee submission for Best Foreign Language Film at the 91st Academy Awards: Woman at War, a timely film that speaks to social issues with wit and warmth. Halla (Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir in a bravura performance) is a choirmaster who loves her job. And, she’s just learned she’s been approved to adopt a child from a war-torn area in Ukraine, a longtime dream of hers. The only hitch is that Halla is also a terrorist — an eco-terrorist to be exact. The proliferation of heavy industry, urged on by unscrupulous politicians, has been ruining Iceland’s rugged landscape and she’s taken action. Dubbed the Mountain Woman, Halla soon becomes the scourge of the aluminum industry. She is determined to see things through… but she can’t help wondering, would it be more fulfilling to save hypothetical future lives or one actual life: the daughter she has yet to meet and may never if she’s apprehended. Erlingsson’s second feature drills deep into the inevitable dilemmas plaguing almost everyone committed to the greater good. And the political satire here is precise and rich. Tickets are on sale now! Purchase your tickets online at www.reddeermuseum.com, stop by the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery in person, or give us a call at 403.309.8405. Tickets are $8 each for valid MAG Members, and $10 each for Non-Members, up until 4:30 pm on film nights. Tickets can be purchased at the door on film night for $10 each starting at 6 pm (cash only; no member rate at the door), pending availability. Reel Movie Mondays gratefully acknowledges our partnership with Film Circuit, presented by TIFF, and its sponsors and supporters.

Reel Movie Mondays: Capernaum

Hosted by the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery and Carnival Cinemas, in partnership with Film Circuit, presented by TIFF. Directed by Nadine Labaki, Rated 14A Lebanon | 120 minutes | Arabic w/ English subtitles, Mongrel Media About the Film: Nadine Labaki (Where Do We Go Now?, Caramel) has crafted some of the most indelible depictions of Lebanese life in contemporary cinema. At once gritty and perceptive, Labaki’s latest film is her finest yet, a dive into Beirut’s lower depths as viewed through the eyes of an imperilled child. Zain (Zain Al Rafeea) is only 12, but he’s seen enough of this life to resent his very existence. With numerous children to care for, his parents resort to some inventive scams, such as saturating garments with tramadol, which they then pass along to Zain’s incarcerated brother who reconstitutes the drug and sells it to fellow prisoners. More alarmingly, Zain’s parents have sold his 11-year-old sister’s hand in marriage, which prompts Zain to run away. He befriends an Ethiopian cleaning woman, whose baby he eventually becomes guardian to. But life on the streets offers Zain fewer and fewer places to hide. Encouraged by a current affairs program seeking to draw attention to child poverty, Zain files a lawsuit against his parents for giving birth to him. The trial provides the frame through which Zain’s story unfolds. Named for a town on the Sea of Galilee where Jesus was said to have healed the sick, Capernaum reveals a world in which desperation is constant and the innocent appear forsaken. Our best hope lies in kids like Zain, whose spite is easily matched by his resourcefulness, and whose story Labaki relays with toughness, empathy, and bold cinematic vision. Tickets are on sale now! Purchase your tickets online at www.reddeermuseum.com, stop by the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery in person, or give us a call at 403.309.8405. Tickets are $8 each for valid MAG Members, and $10 each for Non-Members, up until 4:30 pm on film nights. Tickets can be purchased at the door on film night for $10 each starting at 6 pm (cash only; no member rate at the door), pending availability.

Reel Movie Mondays: Wild Rose

Hosted by the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery and Carnival Cinemas, in partnership with Film Circuit, presented by TIFF. Directed by Tom Harper, Not Yet Rated United Kingdom | 101 minutes | English, eOne About the Film: Rose-Lynn Harlan (TIFF 2017 Rising Star Jessie Buckley, Beast) has dreamt of becoming a country music star for as long as anyone can remember. But Glasgow isn’t exactly Nashville, and, as a convicted criminal and single mother of two young children, Rose-Lynn is more country song than country starlet. Just released from prison, forced to wear an ankle monitor and keep curfew, she can’t return to her job as the house-band singer at Glasgow’s Grand Ole Opry. Sporting her white cowboy hat and white leather cowboy boots, Rose-Lynn lands a new job as a housekeeper for the lovely, and very posh, Susannah (Sophie Okonedo, television’s Chimerica, Hotel Rwanda). After catching her singing on the job, Susannah’s kids quickly become Rose-Lynn’s biggest fans and Susannah her enthusiastic patron, determined to help her get to Nashville. But Rose-Lynn’s dreams come at a cost. Her mother (Julie Walters, Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool, Brooklyn), who knows all about abandoning dreams, has always done what she can to help her daughter realize hers, but she also wants her to take responsibility and act like the grown-up that her kids need her to be.

Reel Movie Mondays: Indian Horse (Special Screening!)

Hosted by the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery and Carnival Cinemas, in partnership with Film Circuit, presented by TIFF. *Please note that Indian Horse is not part of the Spring 2019 Reel Movie Mondays series and is not included in any Package pricing. Directed by Stephen Campanelli, Rated 14A Canada | 101 minutes | English, Elevation Pictures About the Film: An adaption of Ojibway writer Richard Wagamese's award-winning novel, this moving and important drama sheds light on the dark history of Canada's Indigenous Residential Schools and the indomitable spirit of aboriginal people. Indian Horse stars Canadian newcomers Sladen Peltier and Edna Manitowabi, as well as Ajuawak Kapashesit (Once Upon a River), Forrest Goodluck (The Revenant), Michael Murphy (Away From Her), Michael Lawrenchuck (Tokyo Cowboy), Johnny Issaluk (Two Lovers and a Bear) and Michiel Huisman (The Age of Adaline). In the late 1950's Ontario, eight-year-old Saul Indian Horse is torn from his Ojibway family and committed to one of the notorious Catholic Residential Schools. In this oppressive environment, Saul is denied the freedom to speak his language or embrace his Indigenous heritage while he witnesses horrendous abuse at the hands of the very people entrusted with his care. Despite this, Saul finds salvation in the unlikeliest of places and a favourite winter pastime -- hockey. Fascinated by the game, he secretly teaches himself to play, developing a unique and rare skill. He seems to see the game in a way no other player can. His talent leads him away from the misery of the school, eventually leading him to the Pros. But the ghosts of Saul's past are always present, and threaten to derail his promising career and future. Forced to confront his painful past, Saul draws on the spirit of his ancestors and the understanding of his friends to begin the process of healing. Tickets are on sale now! Purchase your tickets online at www.reddeermuseum.com, stop by the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery in person, or give us a call at 403.309.8405. Tickets are $8 each for valid MAG Members, and $10 each for Non-Members, up until 4:30 pm on film nights.
