1. SHOCK CORRIDOR THEATRE


Two Silent Screenings - Buster Keaton & Der Letzte Mann


A Guest Curator Series


Tuesday, September 28th. 8:30 pm.


$2


"Neighbors" (1920)
Bring your boy/girlfriend, cuddle, smooch and watch Buster Keaton at his
buffoonish best. This time it is only a simple fence and the ill-intentions
of parents that seperates Keaton from true love. As usual, crude gadgetry,
cops and mistaken identity run rampant in this captivating short that the
critics are calling 'a grand gallimaufry'.


"The Last Laugh"
[Der Letzte Mann] (1924)
In this 1924 expressionistic tale, F.W. Murnau seeks to explore the
deterioration of a hotel porter as he is mistakenly stripped of his most
edifying possession: his job. Emil Jannings skillfully plays this weakening
porter with much zest, then fatigue, enterprise and eventual collapse.
Murnau's visual acumen is obvious here, and the repetitive attention paid to
such cloying icons as the porter's uniform allow the viewer to develop an
intimacy with the world of his character. The unusual, cheerful ending is
quite telling, for it is indicative of the decisive hand that studios played
then, and perhaps still now, in the creative upset of great works.

5. SPEAKING FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES


CRUELTY CALL TAKES AN UP-CLOSE LOOK AT SPCA AGENTS


WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 29 AT 9 P.M. ON CBC-TV


Every day, Amanda Barrett investigates cases of animal cruelty and
neglect for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. For
Amanda, it's so much more than a job. Canada has a problem with pet
abuse, neglect and carelessness. In Ontario alone, there are 242 SPCA
investigators. In recent years, they've responded to 15,000 complaints
and laid charges of animal cruelty in up to 500 of those cases.


CRUELTY CALL is an up-close look at the day-to-day lives of the SPCA
agents and inspectors who fight animal cruelty and neglect. In the
fall of 2003, CBC cameras were attached to Amanda Barrett and several
others. In CRUELTY CALL, we travel with them into the dark corners of
Hamilton's downtown and the lonely logging roads of the Muskoka
region. We catch a rare glimpse of one of Canada's dirty little
secrets. In every community, there are some people who mistreat and
neglect their pets; others who believe they have disposable lives.

6. UVIC GREENS


I hope you all had a wonderful first couple weeks of school and that
you've recovered from the summer.


The first thing that we have to do is have an AGM, so we can...


-decide what our direction will be this year.
-elect members to our executive
-and of course meet each other.


If you have any interest in running for the executive, I urge you to
do it! It's a very rewarding experience- Jim Harris has said
something to the effect of us being the hotbed of Green campus
activity across Canada. The list of things we can do this year is
never-ending. If you're interested, call me at 250 514 7801.


I'm going to set a tentative meeting time for


7:00, Thursday September 30 at QV's,
which is a cafe at the corner of Fisgard and
Government


literally right across the road from the gate to
Chinatown. This way, after the meeting ends we can hang out. Please
e-mail or phone me if this isn't the best time for you. We may have
to change it, if it is too inconvenient to people.


So that's it for now! Please RSVP if you are coming to the meeting.

The Origins of the name ATOMIC VAUDEVILLE.

The origins of the term vaudeville are unclear. Some
sources claim the word was a bastardization of "voix
de ville," French slang for songs or voice of the
town.


ATOMIC VAUDEVILLE is the NEW vaudeville, an attempt to
reclaim the entertainment of instant gratification in
a more diverse and theatrical form.

12. MEL HURTIG'S BOOK LAUNCH TOUR

Mel Hurtig's
Rushing to Armageddon
National Book Tour

Canadian nationalist Mel Hurtig exposes Paul Martin's secret commitment to
George W. Bush's weaponizing of space.

Mel Hurtig has five best-sellers to his credit but this is easily his most
important book. Readers will be shocked to learn how both the American and
Canadian governments are intentionally misleading their citizens about the
Pentagon's unprecedented plans to weaponize space; about the huge new
Russian and Chinese nuclear missile buildup resulting from U.S. Star Wars
plans; about the destruction of vitally important, long-standing arms
control agreements; and about the rapidly increasing danger of a nuclear
apocalypse.

Hurtig provides remarkable and often devastating new information that will
shock, anger, and appall readers. This is a book that every Canadian must
read before Ottawa becomes an active partner in a tragic and potentially
cataclysmic blunder.

4 October
Vancouver: Speech and signing 7:30 p.m. Canadian Memorial United Church

OPEN CINEMA BIRTHDAY PARTY


OPEN CINEMA Celebrates Its 1st Birthday October 5th at Hermann's Jazz Club!


On Tuesday October 5th, OPEN CINEMA invites you to celebrate its first birthday and the launch of an exciting new season of thought-provoking films and discussion at a new location - Hermann's Jazz Club (753 View Street). Please note that screenings will now be held on the FIRST Tuesday of each month.


The popular community screening event kicks off with the provocative "Helen's War: Portrait of a Dissident" (2003). This award-winning Canadian/Australian co-production follows Dr Helen Caldicott, firebrand anti-nuclear campaigner, celebrated author and Nobel Peace Prize nominee as she embarks on an explosive crusade through post 9/11 USA. Tagging along is Caldicott's jaded niece, filmmaker Anna Broinowski, a post-punk fatalist who wonders whether dissent has a place in George W. Bush's Land of the Free.


Physicians For Global Survival members Allan Connolly and Mary-Wynne Ashford will lead the post-screening discussion. "Helen was the person who got me active in the movement" says Ashford, retired MD and past Co-President of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War. "I find the film to be a superb portrayal of Helen."


A great lineup of topical films includes Mickey Lemle's "Ram Dass: Fierce Grace" with stroke survivor and filmmaker Bonnie Sher Klein in attendance (Nov 2); special presentation "BattleGround: Dispatches from the Edge of the Empire" with filmmaker and GNN founder Stephen Marshall (Date TBA) and Marianne Kaplan's locally made "Deconstructing Supper" (Dec 7). Stay tuned for the November 16th launch of OPEN CINEMA's new programming strand 'Desert Island Pics' at Central Bar and Grill, which will feature local personalities introducing their all-time favourite feature films. Schedule details and information will be available on OPEN CINEMA's new website www.opencinema.ca (coming in October) which will also feature an on-line discussion forum and news of OPEN CINEMA's latest projects and developments.


With new financial support from the CRD Arts Development Program and The City of Victoria and on-going sponsorship by the NFB, CineVic, MediaNet, Hollyhock and Media that Matters OPEN CINEMA continues through June 2005 on the first Tuesday of every month.


OPEN CINEMA presents "Helen's War: Portrait of a Dissident"
7pm, Tuesday, October 5th 2004 (doors at 6pm)
Hermann's Jazz Club, 753 View Street. (Call 388-9166 for Reservations)

James Bay New Horizons, 234 Menzies Street


COST: $40

ZVONKO NOVOSEL


Actor Zvonko Novosel is one of the founders and president of Zagreb Actors Studio in Zagreb, Croatia. He has been involved in method acting for the past 16 years and this is his 4th visit to Canada. He has visited Victoria three times in the past (1997, 1999 and 2000) where he held several Method Acting Workshops. He graduated from The Academy of Dramatic Arts in Zagreb, Croatia in 1986.


Zvonko's Workshop will be based on Strasberg's "Method" which concentrates on preparing an actor to feel and express the emotional subtexts of scripts. A charismatic and controlling man, Strasberg brought a high level of intensity and seriousness to American theater. Throughout his fifty-year career, Strasberg continued to refine his "Method," concentrating on relaxation, improvisation, sense memory, and transformation. These physical and psychological exercises are still at the center of work done at the Actors Studio.


To register for the workshop, please contact Paulina Grainger, PUENTE Theatre Society,

16. TREE OF LIFE


Become the tree of life! You are invited to join in a massive expression of
musical performance and landscape art in an ancient forest on Vancouver
Island on Saturday, October 9.


The "Tree of Life" Celebration will invite and bring together a community
of inter-faith, environmental, indigenous and artistic groups to create an
inspiring human sculpture of the tree of life, expressing our gratitude for
the profoundly life-giving treasures of our forest ecosystems in British
Columbia and around the world.


We will be working with excellent photographers and videographers to
document this event, with the resulting photographs and video to be used
for years to come to promote forest protection and demonstrate people power
for environmental change.


We are expecting 500 plus participants in this international media and art
event. Located in a clearcut adjacent to magnificent old growth forests,
this event will include music and song, free food and drinks, and a chance
for an educational tour through an old growth forest. Sponsoring
organizations will provide educational materials about forest protection
for all participants.


We hope you will join us for this spectacular, once-in-a-lifetime event!

17. ACTIVISTS' REJUVENATION RETREAT

Often in the work of social change, stress and overwork can dull our passion and effectiveness. It is important to take time to reconnect with the wellsprings of inspiration, nature, and our vision of hope for the future. Such time is an investment - we return to our work much better able to handle challenges, and able to act from a place of greater peace, better judgment, and increased creativity.

This 3-day retreat will provide opportunities for exploring the larger context of our work for change, as well as spirituality, new models of activism, and other issues and questions that emerge. Participants will share challenges, and build strategies and support for moving forward. There will be also be ample time for reflection and self-care including daily yoga and meditation. Join us to rejuvenate, re-think and re-inspire !

Howdy folks!

Honeygirl continues its rampage after a summer of fun. We played all
over BC this summer; highlights were the Sooke festival, Valdy & Bill
Henderson, up on stage with us for a head swaying version of knocking on
heavens door.

We also had a lot of fun headlining the Little Lulu festival on the back
of flat bed truck on Lesquiti Island. We camped in a teepee together
after the show! It was a very organic experience.

We recently recorded some tracks with David Essig at Watershed Studios.
We'll be releasing our first album "Suck it up Princess" in the fall.

25. FAIR KICK SOCCER
FAIRLY- TRADED SOCCER BALLS
HELPING KIDS THE WORLD OVER

FAIR KICK SOCCER is a not for profit small business located in Victoria,
B.C. We import, market, and distribute Fairly Traded soccer balls in
Western Canada. Our balls are made by Talon Sports in the Sialkot
Region of Pakistan.

The FIFA standard balls are hand stitched of artificial polyurethane
leather. In a size 5 ball there are 690 stitches. The balls carry a
Fair trade label that certifies that their manufacturing meets certain
social, economic, and environmental standards. The Fair trade label
ensures workers get paid a living wage, which in turn ensures they can
provide for themselves, their families, and their community. No child
labour is used as parents can now support their families and send their
children to school. Included in the price of the ball is a fair trade
premium of about 20%. This premium is used for community development
projects such as a health clinic, additions to the school, clean water
systems, etc.

After covering our costs FAIR KICK SOCCER donated all profits to sport
and education programmes for children all over the world. At this time
we are donating between $1 to $5 per ball to Unicef's school kits for
children in Iraq; and for the rescue, rehab, and education of Child
Soldiers in Africa. Ask me about selling the ball as a fundraiser for
your school, team, league, or non-profit organization.

So we invite you to purchase a FAIR KICK SOCCER ball, then get our and
play fair knowing you have paid fair; and that your purchase has given a
FAIR KICK forward to the world's children. Contact Janine Gagnier:
