An outspoken defender of women's rights within Islamic societies, Ayaan Hirsi Ali uses her enthralling life experience to explain her passion for equality and reform for Muslim women around the world. In her honest memoir,Infidel, Hirsi Ali recounts her disturbing experiences of abuse and intellectual and spiritual deprivation that led to her acts of defiance against cultural norms. After fleeing from Somalia to escape an arranged marriage, she obtained political asylum in the Netherlands where she was elected as a member of the Dutch parliament. Against much criticism, Hirsi Ali spoke out against the oppression of Islamic women and their lack of individual rights, arguing against what she considers archaic values that only sustain the poverty and tyranny of Muslims within her homeland and abroad.

An adolescent named Max has an active imagination, and he will throw fits if others don't go along with what he wants. Max, following an incident with Claire (his sister) and her friends, and following a tantrum which he throws as a result of his Mother paying more attention to her boyfriend than to him - runs away from home. Wearing his wolf costume at the time, Max not only runs away physically, but runs toward a world in his imagination. This world, an ocean away, is inhabited by large wild beasts, including one named Carol who is much like Max himself in temperament. Instead of eating Max like they normally would with creatures of his type, the wild things befriend Max after he proclaims himself a king who can magically solve all their problems.

For three weeks, 14-year-old Hayley Stark has been chatting on-line with 'Lensmaster319', a 32-year old fashion photographer, named Jeff. They hit it off, despite the massive age difference. Hayley appears to flirt with Jeff, and Jeff generally restrains himself, even admitting that he must wait 4-years until he can be with her. But his reservations are apparently not enough to decline when Hayley all but invites herself over to his house. Once at the house, manipulation becomes the name of the game, and the pedophile seems to be on the non-traditional side of it. Director David Spade creates a sparse, almost unpopulated world in which two strangers meet for what quickly turns from a coffee date to an after-school special. An unexpected plot twist comes about in the form of a more than vindictive teenager.

USA, 2009 | 90 min | Ondi Timoner | DVD | Unrated

Ten years in the making and culled from 5000 hours of footage, We Live in Public reveals the effect the web is having on our society, as seen through the eyes of "the greatest Internet pioneer you've never heard of," artist, futurist and visionary Josh Harris. Harris, often called the "Warhol of the Web," founded Pseudo.com, the first Internet television network during the infamous dot-com boom of the 1990s. He also curated and funded the ground breaking project "Quiet" in an underground bunker in NYC where 100 people lived together on camera for 30 days at the turn of the millennium. Through his experiments, including a six-month stint living with his girlfriend under 24-hour electronic surveillance which led to his mental collapse, Harris demonstrated the price we pay for living in public.

FREE
Winnipeg-based artist Daniel Barrow uses obsolete technologies to present written, pictorial, and cinematic narratives centering on the practices of drawing and collecting. He creates animations by projecting, layering, and manipulating drawings on overhead projector transparencies. Here he will perform his piece Every Time I See Your Picture I Cry. This innovative "manual animation" combines overhead projection with video, music, and live narration to tell the story of a garbage man with a vision to create an independent phone book chronicling the lives of everyone in his city. But while he works, a deranged killer aims to render his cataloguing efforts obsolete. Featuring a soundtrack by The Aislers Set's Amy Linton, Barrow's feature animation is a marvel to behold; like a graphic novel come to life with the simplicity and wonder of a magic lantern show. This live performance cinema is a surrealist tour-de-force!
