 Test The Fest!

Canada20201:00EnglishCanadian Premiere

Wondering if your system can handle our digital viewing portal? Unsure of how our ticketing system works? We recognize that the switch to new technology can make you feel uneasy with the unfamiliarity. That's why we've made this quick-and-easy test screening exercise for you to see how our ticketing (powered by Elevent) works and how you can access the viewing portal (powered by CineSend).

Click on the red BUY TICKET button to the right. A new window, powered by Elevent, will pop up over the site. Follow the on-screen directions.

(click to open larger image in a new tab)

 

Don’t worry, you won’t be charged – tickets to this Test The Fest exercise are free!

When you finish checking out of your shopping cart, Elevent will take you to this screen:

(click to open larger image in a new tab)

 

Because this screening is available right now, there is a blue “View” button. This is what will happen when you buy tickets to a screening after the festival has begun. → SKIP TO STEP 5

If you are buying in advance, you will see an indication of when the screening will be available instead of a “View” button. → GO TO STEP 3

Okay, so let’s imagine you bought a ticket in advance. You’ve checked out and gotten Elevent’s “Order Complete” screen with no view button, but an indication of when your screening will become available. For most titles, screenings become available at 10:00 AM on Thursday, November 12, 2020. (The exception is the opening night film, Down A Dark Stairwell, which only becomes available at 7:00 PM on November 12).

At 9:00 AM on Thursday, November 12, 2020 – an hour before the films become available, you will receive a “Virtual Access” email from Elevent in your inbox. Look for the words “Virtual Access” in the subject header:

(click to open larger image in a new tab)

 

You will receive a separate email for every film you buy access to. Since they all become available at the same time, you will get multiple emails at the same time.

When you open the virtual access email, you will see a big blue button in the center of the page:

Click on the link to be taken to our viewing portal, powered by CineSend.

You will be taken to Reel Asian’s viewing portal, powered by CineSend. The link takes you right to the film’s play page:

I heard my heartbeat:

Tutum tum, Tutum Tum, Tum Tututum, Tutum Tum

I know this rhythm, warm, growing. The cadence of a poem remembering its own pentameter.

Natarseen nalarzeen, Maa hame baahamasteem

This is a popular chant in Iranian protests, taking its beat from the metric counts of Persian epic poetry.

U _ _ , U _ _ , _ U U _ , U _ _

The prosody leads the way this poem is read. The rhythm echoes thousands of people marching down the streets of Tehran. Bodies in synch, voices in tune – a crowd in climax. Rhythm mirrors heartbeats, then one beat united, a movement…protest…revolution.

Na ekhtelaas na barjaam, Moghaavemat yek kalaam

Poetic, paternal, and harmonic. One voice shaped by thousands of bodies. A beat without an instrument to play it on. Occasional foot heels striking the ground, hands clapping to introduce a transition in tempo

They say history repeats itself; cyclical, monotonous and repetitive. Like chanting. A call for action and an abstraction, rising in collective objection with increasing fervor. Are they cultural weapons?

مرگ†بر†تو،†مرگ†بر†تو،†مرگ†بر†تو

The medium is… The medium is… Meaning is not just words, but the material qualities of the language and the execution of action (sharp as knives).

Streets become stages, activists turn into actors. These repeated rhyming couplets shouted in a call-and-response format make use of common prosodic strategies such as internal rhyme and assonance.

Iranee meemeerad, zellat nemeepazeerad.

We mimic each stressed syllable, internalize the prosody, and embody the segmentation of slogans. Our phonological awareness surpasses the ability to detect, segment, and manipulate the sounds in language. We are masters of rhythm, teachers of rhyme, poets of turmoil, and deliverers of the voice!

Maa bachehaye jangeem, bejang ta benajgeem

Translation, as a fundamental metaphor of our time, highlights the challenges posed through cultural, political, and linguistic fragmentation in a global setting.

clap, [rest], clap, [rest], clap, clap, clap

Translation, a means of transcending crossing borders can also be the act of bordering. It can create common understanding while at the same time identifying key differentiators. These chants remain Farsi, while letting the performers be the translators, the actors, and the remediators. Meaning is derived not from the meaning of the words, but from the physical and material elements of the words.

Marg [rest] bar[rest], dik taa tor!

The decades-long social revolution unfolding in slow bass percussion is one melody line.

Can you feel the beat? Can you hear the emotional impact of the phrase? Can you hear the urgency to create a repetitive pattern? Can you hear the old man shout in front his shop window? Can you feel the power?

“Because our societies have the illusion that they change quickly, because the past slips away forgotten, because identity is intolerable, we still refuse to accept this most plausible hypothesis: if our societies seem unpredictable, if the future is difficult to discern, it is perhaps quite simply because nothing happens. Except for the artificially created pseudo-events and chance violence that accompany the emplacement of repetitive society.”i

KHAAREJii explores the paradoxes within the act of translation as a mechanism that opens up a space between different cultures, while creating a space for misrepresentation and a border that sets dual settings such as source and target, center and periphery, local and foreign. It celebrates the impossibility and failure of translation and considers the alternatives in translation.

I See Jacques Attali, Noise: The Political Economy of Music, The University of Minnesota Press, 89-90

ii KHAAREJ in Farsi can be translated as: outside, foreign, out of tune/out of key (in music), outer, exterior, abroad, quotient (mathematics), and beyond.

Down a Dark Stairwell: Opening Night Screening and Live Panel

USA202083 minEnglish, Cantonese, Mandarin with English SubtitlesDocumentary, Reel Asian Award Winner, Women Filmmakers

ONLY AVAILABLE IN ONTARIO

Down a Dark Stairwell takes a nuanced and careful look at the events following the 2014 case where Akai Gurley was shot and killed in the stairwell of an apartment building by Chinese-American NYPD officer Peter Liang.

Director Ursula Liang (no relation to Peter) and her crew follow the Black Lives Matter protests rallying around Gurley’s family to support a conviction, while also following various predominantly Asian American communities’ protest responses to what they deem an unfair trial.

In our current context of urgent calls for accountability around excessive police violence, Down A Dark Stairwell’s raw and honest witness to the ways racial politics fissure and divide us feels timely and necessary. In documenting multiple communities’ response to every new development from the event, the film contends with how fraught and limited notions of justice can be, and the devastating violence that the policing system inflicts on Black communities.

Director note:

This case captured the attention of national media and highlighted what we in our respective communities have known for a long time: we are not united. In fact, in low whispers with problematic language, we often talk about one another. But what we are not talking about is the many reasons why this space between us exists: bubbles created by social media filters and propaganda, white supremacy, structural oppression, social inequality and isolation.

I want to learn from these conversations. To look at how the complexities of this case reflect the complexities of our fight for humanity, agency and respect. To talk about whether the battles we fight bring us power or dissipate it. And to examine who really benefits when marginalized groups are divided.

- Ursula Liang
