Film KICKS final installment.

Film KICKS final installment.

A film that has been nominated for best Foreign Language Oscar is coming to Golden as the last film in Kicking Horse Culture’s Film KICKS series. Incendies, a Canada-France co-production that brings the horror of war to a deeply personal level, will screen at the Golden Cinema on Thursday, March 10th and Film KICKS volunteers are hoping to fill every seat in the Theatre.Here is the synopsis:When a notary sits down with Jeanne and Simon Marwan to read them their mother, Nawal’s, will, the twins are stunned to receive a pair of envelopes — one for the father they thought was dead and another for a brother they didn’t know existed. In this enigmatic inheritance, Jeanne sees the key to Nawal’s retreat into unexplained silence during the final weeks of her life. She immediately decides to go to the Middle East to dig into a family of which she knows next to nothing.Simon is unmoved by the posthumous mind games of a mother who was always distant and cold. However, the love he has for his sister is strong, and he soon joins her in  combing their ancestral homeland in search of a Nawal who is very different from the mother they knew.With the notary’s help, the twins piece together the story of the woman who brought them into the world, discovering a tragic fate forever marked by war and hatred as well as the courage of an exceptional woman.Incendies is based on Wajdi Mouawad’s hit play, directed and written by Quebecois Denis Villeneauve, and was shot in both Quebec and Jordan. The film won Best Canadian Feature Film at both the Toronto and Vancouver International Film Fest, Best Film at Venice Days 2010 and Best Director of a Canadian Film from the Vancouver Film Critics Circle, to name a few. “The director, in collaboration with brilliant cinematographer André Turpin, finds potent images of loss and destruction – troop carriers rolling through desert roads, charred ruins and suffocating prison cells – that evoke the human anguish behind the reductive news headlines and television clips,” wrote Liam Lacey in a recent Glove and Mail review. “There are scenes so immediate you wonder how he captured them, where the blend of actors and apparent non-professional extras feels entirely seamless.”The film will screen at 7:30 pm on Thursday, March 10th at the Golden Cinema.
