The film offers a completely different take on the pink ribbon “success” story that has overtaken North America, with insight from leading doctors, activists and social critics, as well as women diagnosed with breast cancer.

 

What are your favourite film quotes spoken by women?

Quote:
“Most guys, we can recite all of The Godfather, we can recite all of Caddyshack, we can do all those kind of things. Women, by and large, can’t. You can guys can say you complete me, and that’s about it. And I think it’s because in the history of movies, there have been fewer quotable lines spoken by actresses than actors.”

 –Aaron Sorkin

Join the National Film Board of Canada for the free screening of documentary Invisible City depicting the struggles of urban poverty and race in Toronto's Reagent Park.

Invisible City is a moving story of two boys from Regent Park crossing into adulthood -- their mothers and mentors rooting for them to succeed; their environment and social pressures tempting them to make poor choices. Turning his camera on the often ignored inner city, Academy-award nominated director Hubert Davis sensitively depicts the disconnection of urban poverty and race from the mainstream.

Everyone welcome. Allies welcome.

GLEN OR GLENDA: wildly considered the worst film ever . . . it is an exploitation film created by Ed Wood, and featuring Bela Lugosi. The film is a docudrama about cross-dressing and semi-autobiographical. Wood himself was a crossdresser, and the film is a plea for tolerance.

"Glen or Glenda" tells two stories. One is about Glen, who secretly dresses as a woman but is afraid to tell his fiancée. The other is about Alan, a "pseudohermaphrodite" who undergoes a painful operation to become a woman. The film delivers earnest (even if incoherent) lectures on understanding. A cult classic with great conviction.

Campy with comic appeal and definitely a B-movie beyond the mainstream - come question what is has to say.
