Not Rated: 90 min - Drama | War

War Witch (French: Rebelle) from Wikipedia. "War Witch (French: Rebelle) is a 2012 Canadian drama film written and directed by Kim Nguyen. It was primarily filmed in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The film was in competition for the Golden Bear at the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival in February 2012. At Berlin, Rachel Mwanza won the Silver Bear for Best Actress. She also won the award for Best Actress at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival."

"The film was Canada's entry in the Best Foreign Language Film category at the 85th Academy Awards, and became one of the five nominees. Mwanza was granted a visa to allow her to attend the Academy Awards. The film was the top winner at the 2013 Canadian Screen Awards,[13] winning 10 awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor."

Plot summary for Rebelle (War Witch) from IMDB. "Komona, a girl in Sub-Saharan Africa, tells the story to her unborn child about her kidnapping by rebels and forced to join their bloody civil war. When she discovers a valuable intuition about the presence of the enemy, she is elevated as a witch and favored by the rebel leader. However, this special status threatens to be short-lived in this world of superstition and senseless brutality even as the ghosts of the war dead haunt her visions. However, when a newfound friend convinces her to desert, Komona finds escaping that brutal life is far from easy with its physical and spiritual consequences following her wherever she goes." ~ Written by Kenneth Chisholm.

Enchanted Food
Social Studies Lecture
by Lianne Harris
at Palisades on the Glen
18 September 2013

Apples, pomegranates, peaches and wine
Bread and honey, ambrosia, fishes and swine,
To the Gods that have fed you, make them a shrine
Blessing and curses of food are works of the divine.

WHEN FOOD IS THERE . . . BEWARE!

The social significance of food is culturally mirrored in religious stories, myth, fables and legends which teach us much about responsibility, accountability, commitment and hospitality. Its implication, largely lost in today's modern world, cannot be underestimated to better understand classic literature and holy writ.

In this engaing and visual 1-hour presentation, Lianne Harris takes the participant on a delicious journey into the world of foods and feasting, serving up stories and cultural comparisons to whet your appetite on how to best behave while nibbling, lest YOU be served as food for the Gods!

Lianne has been a history, culture and social studies resource specialist with the Toronto District School Board for almost 20 years and has been the guest instructor and workshop leader for teachers across many boards in Southern Ontario. To date, usually dressed in authentic period clothing, she has taught over 50,000 teachers and students. In 2003, she was selected by W.O.M.A.D. as one of Toronto's Women of Influence. She is the author of many books including 2 medieval novels and non-fiction books on Bangladesh, Odyssey, India, great women in history, historical clothing and costuming, and world travel photography.

Refreshments will be served!

Limited Seating! Please RSVP with Concierge at 905-820-8210 by September 16, 2013 for the 2nd lecture on September 18, 2013.

Upcoming Lectures in the Social Studies Series will be on the following topics:
● October 16, 2013 ~ Fables, Fairytales and Rhymes: Lesson for Real Life
● November 20, 2013 ~ Queen's Closet
● December 18, 2013 ~ Winged Majesty

110 min. - Drama

Therese Desqueyroux (2012 film) from Wikipedia. "Therese Desqueyroux is a 2012 French drama film directed by Claude Miller. It is an adaption of the François Mauriac novel of the same name, first published in 1927. The last work of Claude Miller, who died in April 2012, this film closed the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, where it was screened in competition for the Palme d'Or."

Plot summary from IMDB. "The year is 1926. In the Landes region, free-spirited Therese Larroque, the daughter of a wealthy pinery owner and radical-socialist politician, marries Bernard Desqueyroux, another pinery owner. Although she does it half-heartedly, she thinks that marriage may help her to "sort out all the ideas in her mind". But her disappointment is great. Her wedding night is all but fascinating and when she becomes pregnant she realizes the baby matters more to Bernard than herself. While Therese stifles in her husband's beautiful residence among stiff in-laws who do not think high of her, ideas keep on roaming her mind." ~ Written by Guy Bellinger.
