CineSeries Kicks Off 2019/2020 Season
September 15, 2019, Waterloo Region, Ontario - CineSeries is thrilled to announce our fall lineup of film programming for the 2019/2020 season. Presented by the Grand River Film Festival, in partnership with TIFF Film Circuit, CineSeries is a film program bringing the best of Canadian and world cinema to Cambridge on select Wednesdays, September to April, at Cambridge Centre’s Galaxy Theatre. The season kicks off September 18 at 7:30 pm with a screening of BEFORE YOU KNOW IT - In the wake of a sudden family tragedy, Rachel and Jackie learn that their mother, who was presumed dead, is actually alive and thriving as a soap-opera star, upsetting the sisters’ already-precarious balance.
CineSeries will also screen the following films this fall:
October 9, 7:30 pm - COLD CASE HAMMARSKJOLD - In 1961, United Nations Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld’s plane mysteriously crashed, killing Hammarskjöld and most of the crew. With the case still unsolved more than 50 years later, Danish journalist and filmmaker Mads Brügger teams up with Swedish private investigator Göran Björkdahl to unearth the truth.
October 30, 7:30 pm - IL PLEUVAIT DES OISEAUX (And The Birds Rained Down) - Three elderly hermits live in the woods. While wildfires threaten the region, their quiet life is about to be shaken by the arrival of two women. A story of intertwined destinies, where love can happen at any age.
November 20, 7:30 pm - WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY - In the mid-19th century, Emily Dickinson is writing prolifically, baking gingerbread, and enjoying a passionate, lifelong romantic relationship with another woman, her friend and sister-in-law Susan.
