Ancaster Film Fest offering for this week features choice of two flicks

News Sep 25, 2009 Ancaster News

In the Sundance Sci-Fi hit, Moon, Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) is nearing the end of a three-year contract with Lunar Industries and is counting the days until his return

to Earth. The lone occupant of a lunar mining base, Sam monitors the tractors that harvest the moon's surface for helium energy. Buoyed by sporadic transmissions from his wife and young daughter, he combats monotony and isolation by tending to plants, continuing his predecessor's woodcraft project and interacting with the station's

robotic computer, Gerty. Unfortunately, Sam is beginning to unravel mentally. After a hallucination causes him to crash his lunar rover, he wakes up in the sick bay and soon realizes his life at

the base is not what it seems. Academy Award Winner for Best Foreign Language Film of the year, Departures is a delightful and sensitive journey into the heartland of Japan and an astonishingly beautiful look at a sacred part of Japan's cultural heritage.

A premiere symphony orchestra in Tokyo disbands, leaving Daigo Kobayashi (Masahiro Motoki) suddenly unemployed. Suffering from an innate sense that he is a mediocre musician, he faces the fact that not everyone who has devoted their life to music can become a top artist. With wife Mika (Ryoko Hirosue) in tow, he moves back to his home town in the northeastern prefecture of Yamagata. They move into the crumbling remains of his mother’s house, which doubled as the local pub. Spotting a Help Wanted ad featuring the word “departures,” he is excited about the prospect of trying a new career.

Moon screens at the Ancaster Silver City on Monday, Sept. 28 at 4 p. m. and Departures screens at 7:15 p. m. The box office opens at 3:15 and 6:15 p. m. respectively. Nonmembers pay $9 for the matinee and $10 in the evening. All proceeds from this screening will go to the Hamilton Out of the Cold Program. Some $1200 from previous screenings was donated to the Hamilton Out of the Cold Program.
