Each month, Melanie Friesen invites a distinguished guest to Vancity Theatre’s Cinema Salon, in order to present his/her favourite film. After the screening, both audience and speaker have the opportunity to engage over drinks and snacks in the Vancity lounge. This month’s film is The Company of Wolves.

About the film
Nascent female sexuality is the focus of “The Company of Wolves,” where young Rosaleen dreams about nocturnal werewolves and spooky forests. “Never stray from the path, never eat a windfall apple, and never trust a man whose eyebrows meet in the middle,” warns Granny (Angela Lansbury). Then walking in the forest, Rosaleen is tempted aside by a dashing hunter whose eyebrows meet in the middle. While neither a children’s film nor a horror film, its hypnotic beauty is found in the allegories of leaving childhood behind and embracing maturity.

This month’s Cinema Salon is hosted by Sandra Singh, Vancouver Public Library’s Chief Librarian since December 2010.
