Vancouver Design Week

Vancouver Design Week, Sept 15–28, is a collaborative platform, a call to action, and an invitation to us all to immerse in design and its transformative potential.

For 14 days, Vancouver Design Week will turn the city into a petri dish of design process, practice, and perspectives; through a wide range of independent and collaborative programming. From talks to tours, exhibits to workshops, parties to pop-ups, design across disciplines will open its doors for conversations, installations and celebrations of all scales.

Uncover the unique design ecosystem that shapes, defines and sustains our city. Don’t miss the chance to join in, speak up and stand out in shaping Vancouver’s future!

A Master Builder

Vancouver premiere of the film A Master Builder at  the Cinematheque!

The artistic triumvirate of Jonathan Demme, André Gregory, and Wallace Shawn update Henrik Ibsen’s The Master Builder, a modern classic about a successful, egomaniacal architect who has spent a lifetime bullying his wife, employees, and mistresses — who nonetheless wants to make peace with himself as his life approaches its final act. Wallace Shawn gives a tour-de-force performance as the cruel, yet guilt-ridden architect. Jonathan Demme’s direction is based on the near-legendary production created for the stage by André Gregory over a period of more than 10 years. Lisa Joyce plays a sensual, mysterious young visitor who turns the household upside down, much to the consternation of Julie Hagerty, perfectly cast as Shawn’s neurasthenic, long-suffering wife” (Film Forum New York). The film is dedicated to Louis Malle. Showings will take place from September 11 – 14, 2014.
