Friday, February 16 at 7pm.
Cadillac Tramps: Life on the Edge. Directed by Jamie Sims Coakley, the documentary explores the ravages and vagaries of the five-member band, Cadillac Tramps, who exploded onto the grunge scene in the early 1990s. But like many of their genre, the members wrestled with infighting and drug and alcohol addiction to the point where the band tragically dissolved at the height of their popularity. Director and band members will be in attendance for a Q&A following the screening and at the opening night after-party at a Fort Langley restaurant.
Saturday, February 17 11am - Student Film Showcase
This is the day to showcase the talent of our up-and-coming film makers from Brookswood Secondary, RE Mountain Secondary, Langley Fine Arts and Langley Secondary School. Their films are provocative, mind-boggling, textured and outside the box.
Saturday, February 17 3:30-5:00pm Luk' Luk'l.
Watch as the cream of the crop collide with the salt of the earth in Luk' Luk'l. Directed by Wayne Wapeemukwa, a Langley School District Brookswood Secondary graduate, the film is a sharp historical critique of what happens when greed rears its ugly head as it did in Vancouver in 2010. While the 2010 Olympics galvanized the people of a city and province into a massive mob of feel-good zealots, the darker side of the Olympic phenomenon rampaged its way through an iconic Vancouver neighbourhood. The Vancouver East Side was, and still is, an area steeped in grit. The buildings ooze with history and its denizens are both proud and desperate. Although the dismal alleys reek of suffocating poverty and despair, the adjoining streets vibrate with cultural diversity. Luk Luk'l winner of several awards at TIFF and VIFF brings home the paradox in a starkly real and uncensored way. Wayne Wapeemukwa, who resides in London, England will be interviewed via skype by his high school film teacher, Carl Hofbauer following the screening.
