INDEPENDENT FILMS – Kathy Kay

Wild Tales, after an over-the-top response at the Victoria Film Festival, is coming back in May

It’s spring and fair weather marks our days and the urge to be outdoors grows and grows yet still the dark calls out with some great May films and one in particular on May 13 also flies the flag for Help Lesotho, a Canadian Charity.  They are presenting The Forgotten Kingdom and are raising funds with an independent film to support life changing programs in that country. thevic.ca

Wild Tales, after an over-the-top response at the Victoria Film Festival, is coming back in May. There is a munificent bent to the universe after all! Check out The Vic Theatre or Cinecenta.

And finally a not to miss jaunt to the ends of the world with Wim Wenders who turns his camera on famed photographer Sebastião Salgado, a man articulate with both words and pictures. The Salt of the Earth is truly a mesmerizing transformational film.
