CUFF.Docs is the perfect place for anyone with the same intrigue and interest in factual content as we have. At CUFF.Docs, the quality of the film is what matters most; we don't book films to make political statements or advocate for particular issues. Instead, we hope to present a range of films that both confirm and challenge beliefs, promoting a sense of wonder and a healthy skepticism, and above all, that continue to advance the medium of documentary filmmaking.

The Woman Who Loves Giraffes - Poster

The Woman Who Loves Giraffes

Synopsis:

?Director: Alison Reid

Language: English

Genre: Documentary

Running Time: 83 minutes

 

Synopsis:

“In 1956, four years before Jane Goodall ventured into the world of chimpanzees and seven years before Dian Fossey left to work with mountain gorillas, in fact, before anyone, man or woman had made such a trip, 23-year-old Canadian biologist, Anne Innis Dagg, made an unprecedented solo journey to South Africa to become the first person in the world to study animal behaviour in the wild on that continent. When she returned home a year later armed with ground-breaking research, the insurmountable barriers she faced as a female scientist proved much harder to overcome. In 1972, having published 20 research papers as an assistant professor of zoology at University of Guelph, the Dean of the university, denied her tenure. She couldn’t apply to the University of Waterloo because the Dean there told Anne that he would never give tenure to a married woman. This was the catalyst that transformed Anne into a feminist activist. For three decades, Anne Innis Dagg was absent from the giraffe world until 2010 when she was sought out by giraffologists and not just brought back to into the fold, but finally celebrated for her work.

 

“In The Woman Who Loves Giraffes, an older (now 85), wiser Anne takes us on her first expedition back to Africa to retrace where her trail-blazing journey began more than half a century ago. By retracing her original steps, and with letters and stunning, original 16mm film footage, Anne offers an intimate window into her life as a young woman, juxtaposed with a first hand look at the devastating reality that giraffes are facing today. Both the world’s first ‘giraffologist’, whose research findings ultimately became the foundation for many scientists following in her footsteps, and the species she loves have each experienced triumphs as well as nasty battle scars. The Woman Who Loves Giraffes gives us a moving perspective on both."

Mahler - Poster

Mahler

Synopsis:

?MAHLER (1874)

Directed by Ken Russell | UK | 115 mins.

Presented by Calgary Cinematheque as part of their 2018/19 Season


Ken Russell returns to his BBC roots with this lush and pastoral account of the life of Gustav Mahler. In hallucinatory interludes imagined by Russell, at the peak of his powers, Mahler (Robert Powell) imagines the trials and tribulations of the life that led to his classic music.

 

Featuring evocative English Lake Country landscapes, a sterling cast including Georgina Hale as Mahler’s long suffering wife Alma and Mahler's powerful and mournfully soulful music, Russell fashions one of his most complete and stimulating tales regarding the nature of musical creativity and the sacrifices, personal and professional, that are a part of the artists life.
