Nicola Valley Film Society presents Woman at War  (Rated PG, in Icelandic with English subtitles) on Monday 18th November at 7pm at the NVIT Lecture Theatre.

Woman at War is a timely film that speaks to social issues with wit and warmth.  Halla is a choirmaster who loves her job.  She’s just learned she’s been approved to adopt a child from a war-torn area in the Ukraine, a longtime dream of hers.  The only hitch is that Halla is also a terrorist - an eco-terrorist to be exact.  The proliferation of heavy industry, urged on by unscrupulous politicians, has been ruining Iceland’s rugged landscape and she’s taken action.  She is determined to see things through but she can’t help wondering:  would it be more fulfilling to save hypothetical future lives, or one actual life - the daughter she has yet to meet and may never if she’s apprehended?

A tiny jazz band follows Halla everywhere she goes - on rooftops, in remote fields, in the middle of a flood - sometimes joined by a cadre of singers in traditional Ukrainian dress.  It’s a reminder that the revolution should be hopeful, not just doom and gloom.  And it should come with cool music!

Tickets are $5 and memberships for the 2019/2020 season are $2 and are available at the door.  Free parking.  No food or drinks allowed in the theatre.  For more information phone 250-378-5190.

Nicola Valley Film Society presents “Girls of the Sun” (Rated PG, France 2018, with subtitles) on Monday 21st October at 7pm at the NVIT Lecture Theatre.

A rousing story about Kurdish female fighters in Iraq, a surprising phenomenon that is not that well chronicled in the West. It is based on true events that occurred in 2014. Mathilde is a war correspondent who embeds herself with a female unit of Peshmerga fighter in the Daesh battleground of Northwestern Kurdistan in Iraq. Most of the women there are survivors and former sex slaves, following the massacre of their families and loved ones. A woman named Bahar is their leader, and they are fierce fighters, propelled by their personal suffering to fight back against the oppressors who have attempted to destroy their villages and especially their families. But they are also women, and their shared camaraderie and personal back stories add an extra layer of humanity that might not be found if the film were about male fighters. This is a film that challenges our expectations.

Tickets are $5 and memberships for the 2019/2020 season are $2 and are available at the door. Free parking. No food or drinks allowed in the theatre. For more information phone 250-378-5190.
