“I have been attending the Toronto International Film Festival regularly since 1990. Aside from seeing films from all the world, it has given me a profound appreciation of the work of Canadian filmmakers. Due to my love for the work of filmmaker Guy Maddin, in 1991 I programmed the largest exhibition of works by the Winnipeg Film Group outside of Canada, THE MONDO MANITOBA MARATHON which I presented at Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center in Buffalo, N.Y. as well as here in New Orleans. As part of the marathon, I produced a 30 minute video on the working relationship between filmmaker Guy Maddin and screen-writer George Toles entitled STRANGLED BY A LARGE INTESTINE. Then from 1995 to 1997, Zeitgeist presented an on-going series of films and performances entitled QUEERLY CANADIAN, which celebrated works and artists from Canada that personified both definitions of the word “queer”, meaning either “gay” or “odd”. Over the years Zeitgeist has hosted Canadian performers and filmmakers Bruce La Bruce, David Bateman, Michael Achtmann, and David Roche. We have screened hundreds of films from Canada, but we didn’t actively advertise that it was from Canada. That’s not enough. This work needs to be celebrated and exposed to new audiences. We need bigger!” – Rene Broussard, Zeitgeist Founder/Director
According to Canadian author and Prespyterian minister Tristan Emmanuel, Canada is looking to destroy America. In his new book, WARNED: CANADA’S REVOLUTION AGAINST FAITH, FAMILY AND FREEDOM THREATENS AMERICA, Emmanuel writes:
“Canada is being used as a staging ground to export radical liberalism and its being aimed right at America: everything from gay ‘marriage’ to polygamy to lowering the age of sexual consent and strengthening ‘human rights’ laws to protect prostitution. If it’s radically liberal, Canada is involved.”
Well if this is true, it’s all the more reason for Zeitgeist to celebrate and to help promote their agenda.
I’m not saying that Canada is trying to turn America Gay, but not only is Canada bigger than the U.S. (and we all know size does matter!), when you look at the map, it’s on top…

SING ME THE SONGS THAT SAY I LOVE YOU: A CONCERT FOR KATE McGARRIGLE by Lian Lunson. Rufus and Martha Wainwright honored their legendary mother, folksinger Kate McGarrigle (1946 – 2010) with a Town Hall concert in NYC that included performances/appearances by Anna and Jane McGarrigle, Jimmy Fallon, Emmylou Harris, Norah Jones, Antony Hegarty, Teddy Thompson, and novelist Michael Ondaatje. Lian Lunson, director of LEONARD COHEN: I’M YOUR MAN, assembles home movie footage of the Wainwrights (their father is Loudon Wainwright III), archival footage, and family interviews that give resonance to the story of Kate’s life and the songs she wrote (many with her sisters); they draw upon romantic, carefree, and bittersweet memories that reference her life as an artist, wife, sister, and mother. Rufus’s rendition of Candles is a particularly poignant moment among many.
Opening September 20:
I DECLARE WAR by Jason Lapreyre & Robert Wilson. Audience Award Winner: 2012 Fantastic Fest. Armed with nothing more than twigs, their imaginations and a simple set of rules, a group of 12-year-olds engaged in a lively game of Capture the Flag in the neighborhood woods start dangerously blurring the lines between make-believe and reality. Rocks = Grenades. Trees = Control towers. Sticks = Submachine guns. The youthful innocence of the game gradually takes on a different tone as the quest for victory pushes the boundaries of friendship. The would-be warriors get a searing glimpse of humanity’s dark side as their combat scenario takes them beyond the rules of the game and into an adventure where fantasy combat clashes with the real world. The brilliant young cast features Siam Yu, Gage Munroe, Michael Friend, Aidan Gouveia, Dyson Fyke, Alex Cardillo, Andy Reid, Kolton Stewart, and Alex Wall. “This is by far my favorite film of the year so far. Not to be missed!” – Rene Broussard, Zeitgeist Founder. The film screens as part of our ongoing monthly series CANADA IS BIGGER THAN THE U.S.

OCCUPY LOVE by Velcrow Ripper. OCCUPY LOVE captures the heart of the movement of movements that is sweeping the planet in response to today’s economic and environmental crises. ‘Philosopher-filmmaker’ Velcrow Ripper travels to history-making hot spots, asking the question, ‘How can crisis create a love story?’ Scenes include the Egyptian revolution in Tahrir Square, Spain’s Indignado movement, Occupy Wall Street NYC, The Maple Spring in Quebec, and indigenous activists at the Alberta Tar Sands. The film explores the aspects of this arising that take the form of what Martin Luther King Jr. called ‘Love in action.’ Woven throughout is a deep exploration on the meaning and importance of ‘public love’ – the love of humanity, the love of the planet. This is the third installment in Velcrow Ripper’s Scared Sacred Trilogy, It screens as part of our ongoing monthly series CANADA IS BIGGER THAN THE U.S.
