Friday Flicks
On Friday Nov. 27th, 7:45 at Quadra Community Centre, Friday Flicks presents the Sturla Gunnarson documentary MONSOON.
Monsoon is a visual stunner and visceral experience of India in monsoon season with its alternately disastrous and beneficial impact on society, economy, agriculture and human life. It engenders religious awe in the face of the rain’s monstrous power. It is godlike, equally able to give life and destroy it – a duality that conjures the nature of order, chaos, creation and faith in a perpetually mysterious universe. The Monsoon creates an empathetic understanding of the toll it takes upon those at its mercy. Viewers feel the mounting humidity of the rains – and the relief when they come.
