FLIKS presents Sill Life Wednesday at Capitol Theatre
FLIKS (Film Lovers In the KootenayS) presents STILL LIFE, Wednesday June 5 at 7:30 pm at the Capitol Theatre in Nelson.
Based on true events, Micheal McGowan’s exquisitely crafted and deeply affecting love story about a couple in their twilight years is laced with wry humor.
STILL MINE tells the heartfelt tale of Craig Morrison (Academy Award nominee James Cromwell), who comes up against the system when he sets out to build a more suitable house for his ailing wife Irene (Geneviève Bujold).
Using the same techniques to build his new home as his shipbuilding forbearers used, Craig quickly gets on the wrong side of an overzealous government inspector, when he (God forbid) uses unstamped wood milled from his own trees.
As Irene becomes increasingly ill, and amidst a series of stop-work orders , Craig races to finish the house. Hauled into court and facing jail, Craig takes a final stance.
After this screening, FLIKS takes a break for the summer and returns in the fall for its 11th year of presenting quality movies in Nelson.
FLIKS shows features, documentaries and shorts that are often hard to find.
Many are foreign, some are domestic; some have sub-titles, some are in English; some are happy, some are sad – but they are all inspiring, interesting and entertaining.
Sometimes we present a series on a specific theme, and occasionally we will have special events like Film Festivals, guest filmmakers and speakers, dinner and a movie packages etc.
