Fundy Film fall series
Fundy Film screens Tim’s Vermeer on Oct. 22 at 7 p.m.
Inventor Tim Jenison attempts to solve an art mystery of how Dutch master Johannes Vermeer painted so photo-realistically, 150 years before the invention of photography. In an epic laboratory project to test his theory, he extends research to Vermeer’s Delft, a meeting with artist and Secret Knowledge author David Hockney and to Buckingham Palace for the Queen’s Vermeer.
Then, Fundy Film will screen Boyhood on Oct. 26 at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's story is seen through the eyes of Mason (Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen.
The society will screen Only Lovers Left Alive on Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. In the romantic desolation of Detroit, an underground musician, Adam (Tom Hiddleston), deeply depressed by human activity, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover, Eve (Tilda Swinton) in from Tangier. Their love story has endured centuries, but can these wise but fragile outsiders survive as the modern world collapses? Perfect for Halloween, it is an offbeat entry to the vampire genre.
All screenings are at the Al Whittle Theatre, Wolfville. Tickets ($9) are available 30 minutes before screening.
