    September 23, 2014 7:30 PM

    Adapted from Gregory Maguire's novel of the same name, Wicked re-tells the story of The Wizard of Oz from the point of view of Elphaba and Glinda, two ofthe witches of Oz. According to this version of the famous story, the wicked witch of the west is a misunderstood character whose complex childhood and dramatic history with several of the story's beloved characters, particularly the Wizard of Oz himself, have attributed to her "wicked" reputation. Written primarily for adults, Wicked raises questions about our contemporary ethical standards.

    »Matisyahu

    September 23, 2014 7:00 PM

    Quite the anomaly, Matisyahu is an American Hasidic Jewish reggae musician. He first started making music in 2000 and achieved mainstream success with the release of "King Without a Crown," a single that would go on to receive attention in the U.S. top 40 charts. It might seem like a contradiction for a devout Jew to devote himself to reggae and hip-hop stylings, and though his rabbi likely doesn't approve, Matisyahu is able to pull it off and sound completely original doing it.

Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning.   The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening:  millions of people are deciding that enough is enough -  the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life. The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain,  Occupy Wall Street in New York, Indigenous activists at the Alberta Tar Sands, the climate justice movement, and beyond. Woven throughout the action oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, and compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm.  It features some of the world's key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, bell hooks and Charles Eisenstein. - See more at: http://occupylove.org/about/#sthash.4DiojDmq.dpuf Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cTBlGcZCeAFort McMoney, a documentary game Directed by David Dufresne, 2013February 26, 2014, 6.30 pm, Hart House Debates RoomFort McMoney is part documentary, part choose-your own adventure style massively multiplayer online game.

English Wednesday, March 5, 2014, 6.30 pm, Hart House Debates RoomThis film is a co-presentation by Cinema Politica U of T and Hart HouseInsurgence is a documentary about the vast social mobilization that took place in Quebec during the spring of 2012. Initially propelled by the student strike for accessible education, the scope of the movement soon broadened to take on the government, the impunity and violence of the Montreal police force, the exploitation of untapped natural resources, and the current economic system. The strength of the "Printemps Érable" is rooted in anonymity. The movement allows the common to flow through dispersal, reaching into the solitude of each protester. Each one recognizes her situation in that of the others; affective resonance is transmuted to a point of fusion. Repression can only break up linear collectivities; here, at every turn, at every corner, the common returns in a swarm. View the trailer http://www.cinemapolitica.org/film/insurgenceThe Hart House Conscious Activism Documentary Series presents: Hart House continues its tradition of free programming that engages the mind, awakens the spirit and acts as an incubator of thoughtful exchange, and a call to action for the curious and the concerned.

    »Our Country's Good

    September 23, 2014 8:00 PM

    Our Country's Good is a play written by British playwright Timberlake Wertenbaker, adapted from the novel The Playmaker by Thomas Keneally. The story takes place during the late 1700s when Great Britain began sending convicts along with its Royal Marines to begin building the empire's first penal colony in Australia. Opening up several new perspectives on a period of British history that few ever paid much attention to prior, Our Country's Good went on to take home several awards following its premier at the Royal Albert Hall in 1988, including the Lawrence Olivier Award for that year's best play.
