Iyengar: The Man, Yoga, and the Student's Journey

Jun 16 to Jun 20
Sunday to Thursday 3:45, 8:15

Dir. Jake Clennell - 2019 - 103m - U.S. / India - In English and Kannada with English subtitles and in English

Iyengar Yoga is universally respected, practiced worldwide and credited by multitudes as life-transforming, but because its founder B. K. S. Iyengar is famously reclusive, little is known about the man who invented this powerful practice... until now! Thanks to exclusive, intimate access to this legendary yogi, Jake Clennell's documentary Iyengar: The Man, Yoga, The Student’s Journey is able to showcase the profound spirituality embedded in his practice, which has led religions around the world including Catholicism and Islam to incorporate Iyengar Yoga into their ritual observances. Best of all is the extraordinary time spent with Iyengar, himself, including in the studio where he rules alternately with an iron fist and a velvet touch while demonstrating feats of flexibility and discipline that would be extraordinary if carried out by an Olympic gymnast, let alone a man in his 90s. This documentary is required viewing for anyone with an interest in yoga, wellness, spirituality, or the connection of mind and body.

"Essential viewing for practitioners." – Craig Takeuchi, The Georgia Strait

“Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.” – B.K.S. Iyengar

Walking On Water: Christo

Jun 16 to Jun 20
Sunday to Thursday 6pm ONLY!

Dir. Andrey Paounov - 2019 - 100m - U.S. / Italy - No Matinees

Ten years after the passing of his wife and creative partner, Jeanne-Claude, Christo sets out to realize The Floating Piers, a project they conceived together many years before. Boasting uncensored access to the artist and his team, Walking on Water is an unprecedented look at Christo’s process, from the inception through to the completion of his latest large-scale art installation, a dahlia-yellow walkway atop Italy’s Lake Iseo that was eventually experienced by over 1.2 million people. The film takes the viewer on an intimate journey into Christo’s world amid mounting madness – from complex dealings between art and state politics to engineering challenges, logistical nightmares, and the sheer force of mother nature. Captured through breathtaking aerial views and fly on the wall camerawork, we watch the artist’s vision unfold, and get to know the man chasing it.

“A compelling peek inside a singular creative mind.” – David Fear, Rolling Stone

"Few artists deserve the moniker ‘maverick’ as much as Christo. The artist's forceful character does battle with technology, bureaucracy, corruption and the elements, resulting in an installation of stunning beauty and a documentary that delights in capturing the act of creation." – Jay Weissberg, Variety

"Rollicking! Christo strikes a fascinating figure, a tireless, uncompromising artist who thinks his work is, on the one hand, totally useless, but shows childlike joy when things finally work out." – Mark Peranson, Cinema Scope

“Watching the eccentric luddite Christo bringing the installation to life is like watching a magician perform a drawn-out magic trick.” – Bedatri D. Choudhury, Hyperallergic

"Highlight[s] the kind of practical headaches nearly no other artist in the world has to contend with." – John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter

"A rich, visual record of a monument to transience." – Andrew Karpan, Nonfics
