FALLS AROUND HER
Director: Darlene Naponse
Cast: Tantoo Cardinal, Tina Keeper, Gail Maurice
Runtime: 98 min

Mary is a renowned Anishinaabe musician who comes home to Atikameksheng Anishnawbek First Nation in northern Ontario, exhausted by many years on the road touring internationally with her band. She returns to the land to restore herself, but her past success makes her a commodity to some, and it can be tricky to hide from the demands of the outside world. Her sister Betty senses there may be more to Mary’s need for isolation and urges her to reconnect with family and old friends. As Mary gets out more and even starts dating, it seems as though new possibilities are on the horizon. However, the past has a way of catching up, and when Mary starts to hear disturbing noises around her cabin, she becomes paranoid that someone may be after her.

In spite of the trauma in Mary’s past, Naponse refuses a narrative of victimhood, and instead explores the multiple facets of resilience. Mary knows how to survive, but she also deserves to thrive. And that means gathering the ability to be open to the healing that comes from love, self-expression, family, community, and, especially, the land.

Writer-director Darlene Naponse  brings a unique perspective to the screen that beautifully captures the nuance and rhythms of northern life on a small Anishinaabe First Nation. Acclaimed Métis actor Tantoo Cardinal embodies both strength and vulnerability in the leading role as Mary, a self-sufficient woman who knows that gut instincts should be trusted.

Falls Around Her is legendary Cree and Métis actor Tantoo Cardinal’s first lead role in a feature film — and she’s enthralling in it. – Samantha EdwardsNOW Magazine

CAPERNAUM
Director: Nadine Labaki
Cast: Zain Al Rafeea, Yordanos Shiferaw, Boluwatife Treasure Bankole
Runtime: 123 minute
Language: Arabic

Set against the backdrop of the slums of Lebanon, the film centres on Zain, approximately 12 years old — his parents don’t know his age — and already hardened from years of survival. Failed at nearly every turn by his family, Zain and his younger sister, Sahar, must contend with a variety of dangers, one of which is their parents. After they sell Sahar to try and make ends meet, Zain runs away, and he encounters other kindred spirits trying to maintain a sense of self in incredibly desperate circumstances. When Zain is imprisoned for stabbing someone, he launches a lawsuit against his parents for bringing him into such a grim world.

“It’s a deeply assured piece of direction, and though it only plays a few emotional notes, they are ones that won’t soon leave your memory.” – Emily Yoshida, New York Magazine/Vulture

WILD ROSE
Director: Tom Harper
Cast: Julie Walters, Jessie Buckley, Sophie Okonedo
Runtime: 101 minutes

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. 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, 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.

A happy-sad drama of starstruck fever that lifts you up and sweeps you along, touching you down in a puddle of well-earned tears. – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

FREE SOLO
Featuring: Alex Honnold
Runtime: 97 minutes

Follow Alex Honnold as he becomes the first person to ever free solo climb Yosemite’s 3,000ft high El Capitan Wall. With no ropes or safety gear, he completed arguably the greatest feat in rock climbing history.

You don’t need to be a climbing enthusiast to marvel at the wonders of both humans and nature captured in extraordinary cinematography. For movie-going suspense, nothing can match the real-life daring in Free Solo.

“The classic tension between the sublime and the human spirit breaks down. Man, rock, camera: they’re old suspects, but here they seem made anew.” —Josephine Livingstone, The New Republic

  1. The new Film series begins again in January, we will begin to advertise when we have confirmation on the newest films.

    • Unfortunately, while it is certainly the type of film we love to bring in, The Danish Girl is not one of the films our Huronia Museum Film Series will be showing. However, it is now out on DVD so it is available to rent, it is on demand, or you could check to see if the Midland Public Library will be stocking it and simply borrow from them.

      • There are many reasons why a particular film may not be available to us for showing. The Film Series committee works on film lists based on what we are offered from TIFF and what they have personally seen. The choices made by those members are not always available for showing.
        Huronia Museum is always looking for members to volunteers on the committees that work toward setting up events and work together to choose the films for our Film series. Feel free to drop by and become part of the volunteer team!

  2. I bought the 2015 2016 season pass before Christmas. I asked the girl at the museum if I could use the pass fall 2016 and she said yes. I have only seen one movie.

    • At one point in time (the message you replied to is from 2008 or 2009) they did expire. They no longer do, they are valid until they are finished. 🙂

      • ooops and I gave mine away not remembering this. I decided I should be purchasing at the door but prefer pre purchasing . Now I will do just that again

  3. I attended the Novitiate this past week and heard about upcoming movies. I just wanted to say that the Oscar nominated animation, The Breadwinner, has a Canadian connection. One of the producers, Anthony Leo, hails from the Caledon area and now works out of Toronto and Los Angeles.
    I saw the great movie Breathe and then went to the library and found out it is already on DVD. Paying $10 for a movie and then finding it’s already released is disappointing to me. R. Henkel
