#YEG Save McDougall Church #Petition

Yes! I want McDougall Church to be saved.

In the wake of news coverage indicating McDougall Church may be demolished due to a lack of funding and support for needed repairs, a grassroots group of community leaders, concerned preservationists, performing arts supporters/advocates, and other friends of McDougall has come together to stop this from happening.

Completed over a century ago in 1910, McDougall is much more than a church. It is a direct connection to our collective history, a gathering place for community groups, and one of the most beautiful old buildings remaining in Edmonton’s core. Our city and our province cannot afford to lose this precious part of our built heritage.

Dead Venues Project aims to resurrect Edmonton’s musical past

Remember the very first New City Likwid Lounge on 112th Street? What about Rebar/Stars on Whyte Avenue? Or the two versions of the Sidetrack Cafe?

If you have gig posters, photos or videos from these dearly departed rooms (or any of New City’s other locations), Eden Munro and Mike Siek of NTT Films need your help. They want to celebrate the past with their Dead Venues Project, a series of films about some of Edmonton’s live music hotspots of the ’80s, ’90s and ’00s. To submit visual memorabilia, fill out a form via DVP’s website.

Other defunct venues on NTT’s list: The Power Plant at the University of Alberta campus; The Bronx/Rev Cabaret on 102nd St., now home to the Starlite Room; and The Ambo, which was located in the basement of what is now the Day’s Inn on 106th St.

The films, set to launch in April/May, will feature interviews with local musicians, writers and fans. (You may see/hear me — if I survive the cut.)

“We lived through the scene and been to all these places, but we weren’t there every night, so we wanted to discover all this stuff,” says Munro, who used to cover the scene as the music editor of Vue Weekly. “For me, it’s also filling in the blanks of my own memory. ”

Edmonton documentary filmmaker explores human origins

PREVIEW

The Great Human Odyssey series premiere

Thursday on CBC at 8 p.m.

Advanced screening of Parts 1 and 2 at the Garneau Theatre

Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Garneau Theatre; limited tickets at the door

Like the human species, Niobe Thompson’s ongoing existence as an independent filmmaker is somewhat miraculous.

Anyone in his position can tell you about adaptation and change. But Thompson, 41, has other tales of survival from the three-year production of The Great Human Odyssey, his documentary on the origins of humanity and its path to the present. After visiting the free-diving Bajao people in the southern Philippines, for instance, navy SEALs told him his crew were the first outsiders in over a decade to avoid being kidnapped by Islamist insurgents.

The three-part series, which premieres Thursday on The Nature of Things, is an ambitious achievement in an era of shrinking budgets. Crews ventured into 17 countries in 18 months, filming in state-of-the-art 4K resolution using drone and hand-held footage. It took 22 cinematographers, 20-odd post-production employees and $3 million to make.

“We don’t work at this level in Canada very often,” Thompson says. “For me, it was a realization of a goal I’ve had since I started making films. It was a dream come true.”


Unlike many Canadian productions, which are put together in Toronto, the series was stitched together in Edmonton, inside the basement of a small 1940s bungalow on 99th Street close to the North Saskatchewan River.
