You know Bong Joon-ho from Parasite, but here’s a chance to get familiar with his earlier work. Tonight, the Rio is screening Memories of Murder remastered, Joon-ho’s 2003 crime drama. When you get home and can’t sleep, you can binge the rest of his films.
The Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra has swiftly moved their Global Soundscapes Festival online, with several online virtuoso performances released every Thursday in November. Last week four online shows launched, including local musician Anthony McNab Favel’s stylings on the kiskosi, an Indigenous flute. There’s four more premiering this Thursday, so you can throw your own personal concert.
Take a (distanced) peek inside artist’s studios or binge online events at this year’s Eastside Culture Crawl. There are over 250 artists participating and plenty of diverse works to choose from (and you can learn more about Kayan Hamadeh, the artist who painted the above work, here). Support local artists and take a healthy visual break from your Twitter feed.
