isaw Marwencol -on netflix streaming - an amazing documentary about how a victim of a violent beating by 5 men, survives a coma and retreats into a world of WWII dioramas. He lives his life  through dolls and characters he creates and photographs. A fascinating look at this mans life and how he’s become this wonderful accidental artist. A must see.

SAVE FILM PRINTS

If you have 35mm film reels in your possession please read this

I am a cinematographer based in Nova Scotia, and I have recently set up a 25 seat, 35mm theatre in my home with a view to preserving the theatrical 35mm motion picture format. As theatres across Canada rapidly dispose of their 35mm film equipment, there are fewer and fewer places to screen 35mm prints and films are now starting to be destroyed or thrown away.
I am sending this note out as an appeal to filmmakers, that if you have 35mm prints of films you have made, (shorts, features or documentaries), please do not dispose of them. I would be glad to provide a loving home for them here. I have a storage space that is low humidity and cool, and I screen the prints occasionally to prevent the onset of “vinegar syndrome”. Please do not throw away prints, and please ask your distributor not to destroy them. I do not have a lot of money to purchase prints, but I would be happy to cover shipping.
The theatre is set up with full Dolby surround and the projector was installed by Robert Films of Montreal, a projector dealer and installer for over 20 years. The projector is kept calibrated and clean to minimize wear.
If you have films, and you want to screen them in their original format, you would be welcome to come here anytime. 
I also have screening facilities for 16mm and Super 8.

13 Assassins - a great Japanese samurai film in the grand tradition of Kurosawas Seven Samurai. Beautiful cinematography and tastefully presented violence even though the weapon of choice is the samurai sword. I watched it on #Netflix streaming.
