This experimental feature from Vancouver-based curator Bill Jeffries has three elements: text, visuals, and score. The visuals consist of long, surprisingly soothing takes of autumn leaves chased from the lawns and sidewalks of our own fair city. The text, appearing as superimposed captions, comes in the form of satirical imagined memos from VP Dick Cheney to President George W Bush, and touch on the major issues of that administration. Meanwhile the soundtrack is given to Mahler, his glorious 2nd Symphony. Filmmaker in attendance.

In the tradition of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Hero, and The Grandmaster, The Assassin is a martial arts movie recalibrated as an exquisite work of art. It is the Tang Dynasty: 10-year-old Nie Yinniang is abducted by a nun who initiates her into the martial arts. One day, she is sent back by her mistress to the land of her birth, with orders to kill the man to whom she was promised. "Heart-stoppingly beautiful." Robbie Colin, Daily Telegraph
