    Are the assholes taking over? Assholes investigates contemporary asshole culture, moving between Ivy League frat clubs, the bratty princedoms of Silicon Valley and the bear pits of international finance, searching for signs of civility in a rude-’n-nasty universe.

  • Wayward Heroes: Modern Icelandic Cinema
    Icelandic cinema is exploding around the world. Immediately following the triumph of black comedies like Rams at Cannes, films by directors such as Dagur Kári, Rúnar Rúnarsson, Hlynur Pálmason and Ísold Uggadóttir picked up prizes at major festivals around the world. Legendary TIFF programmer and writer Steve Gravestock is coming to Winnipeg for three days to launch a new book - History of Icelandic Film which explores the great riches of Icelandic cinema from the silent era to the present day. The sporadic production from the ‘20s to the ‘70s gave way to the “Icelandic Spring” of the ’80s, with international inroads being made in the ’90s. Magic-realist fables, bloody Viking epics, sardonic deadpan comedies, and hard-boiled Nordic noirs, a remarkable evolution from the ’80s to contemporary Iceland.
