McDonald at the Movies: Life of Brian
Wed, Nov 21 / 7 pm
A beautiful film, a perfect comedy, and a gentle triumph of silliness over pomposity, self-importance, and intolerance – Monty Python’s "Life of Brian" could be the best British comedy ever. In Judea, a mother tends her newborn child. Lo, from the east three wise men appear to pay tribute to the infant - but they want the stable next door: this is Brian Cohen not Jesus Christ!

Iranian Cinema: Pig
Thu, Nov 22 / 7 pm
A serial killer is beheading Iran’s best filmmakers — and blacklisted director Hasan Kasmai, who has a high opinion of himself, is starting to take umbrage!  Why hasn’t he been targeted yet? The latest from writer-director Mani Haghighi (A Dragon Arrives!) is a flamboyant, farcical black comedy satirizing artistic  ego, gender relations, government censorship, and social-media culture.

To Brush Against the Palm of Your Eye: Short Film and Video by Scott Fitzpatrick
Fri, Nov 23 / 7 pm
Scott Fitzpatrick is the winner of the 2018 Manitoba Film Hothouse Award. Since 2010, Manitoban visual artist Scott has produced a large body of experimental moving image work across a variety of media, with more than forty-five short films, videos, performances and installations to his credit. This collection of twenty titles provides an incomplete retrospective of this work but is an excellent introduction to his work. Adhering largely to rigorous structural forms, tempered by a punk/DIY aesthetic, Fitzpatrick’s films engage ideas regarding adaptation, appropriation, art history, colour theory, semiotics, sexuality, mathematics and more.
