    Friday, June 14 from 7-10pm Open Space celebrates the opening of Neither One Nor the Other / Ni l'un ni l'autre, an exhibition presented in partnership with the National Film Board (NFB). Neither One Nor the Other is a collaborative multimedia installation by Anishnabek artist Dominic Lafontaine and Michif artist Jessie Short. The installation seeks to find the paranormal in the everyday and render the invisible visible. Consisting of video cameras and projectors arranged to create a feedback loop that is projected against a silver Mylar screen, the work augments and amplifies the unseen energies that move around us. Mesmerizing and ethereal, the light of the feedback loop reflecting on the walls creates an immersive and otherworldly visual space that draws onlookers into its folds. The artists will also be present for an artist talk Saturday, June 15 from 2-4pm. The exhibition runs June 15-July 13, Tues-Sat, 12-5pm.

    One of Victoria’s finest short story writers returns this spring with another breathtaking collection. In Meteorites, Julie Paul explores the myriad ways we pick up the pieces after our lives have been shattered, whether through death or injury or subtler (but no less powerful) impacts. Twins in love with the same girl, grieving sons fleeing to faraway lands, duty-bound Sunday organists and criminals shedding dark pasts—no matter how quotidian or extraordinary their circumstances, Paul’s characters remain deeply human and infinitely compelling.

    Vancouver Island. It’s easy to romanticize our lush, idyllic home—but there’s more to life here than hiking, whale watching, and wine. In Island Home, local chronicler Anny Scoones gives voice to the quirkier side of Island life, from overenthusiastic foodies, to chainsaw carving festivals and the giant gnome just north of Nanoose Bay. No matter what prompts her latest “little think,” Scoones proves an essential literary tour guide for anyone intrigued by our eclectic corner of Canada. Round up your neighbours and enjoy this local launch!

  16. Victoria Event Explores life of Early Bute Inlet Pioneers Victoria’s Bolen Books is pleased to present an event with Judith Williams, who will be giving a talk and slide show based on her new book, Raincoast Chronicles 24: Cougar Companions, Bute Inlet Country and the Legendary Schnarrs ($26.95, Harbour Publishing), which explores the history of Bute Inlet and traces the remarkable story of the Schnarr family. Williams’s presentation, which will be followed by a book signing, takes place on Tuesday, May 28 at 7pm. Raincoast Chronicles 24 is an impeccably researched and richly illustrated history of Bute Inlet’s pioneering residents, including August Schnarr and his family. Schnarr, a trapper and a logger in the region from 1910 until the 1960s, was also an amateur photographer who faithfully took a Kodak camera on his many expeditions and used it to capture experiences on the family homestead. To create this fascinating history of these pivotal pioneers, Williams went on research trips to Bute Inlet and the Homathko Valley, conducted interviews and delved into oral history and old diaries. She also used Schnarr’s impressive collection of photos showing life on the remote BC coast—including those of floathouses, log booms, steam donkeys, residents with giant fish catches, boats and pictures documenting August’s daughters with their pet cougars. Judith Williams is an assistant professor emeritus at the University of British Columbia and is also the author of Clam Gardens (New Star Books, 2006) and Dynamite Stories (New Star Books, 2003). She lives on Cortes Island, BC. Bolen Books is located at Hillside Centre (1644 Hillside Avenue). Admission is free and books will be for sale at the event.

    Wednesday 15th at 7:00pm at Edward Milne Community School Theater . Doors open at 6:30pm, Tickets by donation. Set in the forests of Eastern Siberia at the turn of the century, it is a portrait of the friendship that grows between an aging hunter and a Russian surveyor. A romantic hymn to nature and the human spirit. Speaking of the film in greater detail, Kurosawa said, "The relationship between human beings and nature is getting worse and worse...I wanted to have people all over the world know about this Soviet Asian character who lived in harmony with nature... I think people should be more humble toward nature because we are a part of it and we must become harmonized with it. If nature is destroyed, human beings will be destroyed too. So, we can learn a lot from Dersu," (quoted in Donald Richie's The Films of Akira Kurosawa). Or, as the title character himself says in the film, "Man is very small before the face of nature." 94% Audience score in Rotten Tomatoes Dersu Uzala was the second Kurosawa film to earn an Academy Award. His 1950 film Rashomon won Best Foreign Language Film, and the director was awarded an honorary career-achievement Oscar in 1990. This story of friendship will fill your heart.
