Vancouver Week in Widescreen: American Pop and hoser classics

    1 of 3 2 of 3

      American Valhalla  Queens of the Stone Age honcho Josh Homme takes a directing credit (along with Andreas Neumann) for this nonfiction peek into the recording of Iggy Pop’s 2016 album Post Pop Depression. See it at the Cineplex Park Theatre for one night only, on Thursday (June 29).


      Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance  Alanis Obomsawin’s vital doc on the 1990 Oka crisis comes to the Cinematheque’s Canada on Screen series for a free screening on Thursday (June 29).

      Goin’ Down the Road  The film that defined Canadian cinema since forever (or 1970) makes its return to the Cinematheque for two free Canada on Screen dates: Saturday (July 1) and Tuesday (July 4).

      Léolo  With love and semen-drenched tomatoes, Jean-Claude Lauzon’s fantastical 1992 feature joins the Cinematheque’s massive (and, once again, free!) Canada on Screen series on Sunday (July 2).

      Two Trains Runnin’  Gary Clark Jr. is one of the guest artists offering musical interludes in this fascinating doc, which contrasts the search for bluesmen Son House and Skip James with the concurrent arrival of the Freedom Summer in 1964. See it at the Vancity Theatre on Monday (July 3).
