Getting Away with Murder!
September 9, 2014
Headliner(s): Debra Komar
Featured Titles: The Lynching of Peter Wheeler
7:00 pm at Colchester-East Hants Public Library, 754 Prince Street, Truro, NS

A Presentation on Forensics and History by Author Debra Komar


Dr. Debra Komar applies modern forensic science to historic murder cases in her series of books that take a new look at some of Canada’s oldest and most notorious murders.

In her re-examination of cases from the 19th century, Dr. Komar looks at how cutting edge investigative methods are revealing new conclusions in old cases and how far Canada has come in the search for justice.

The Lynching of Peter Wheeler is Komar’s new book, the second title in the four-book series. A new look at footprints and blood analysis in this case proves that, in the haste for justice, an innocent man was convicted and executed in 1896. The case was one of the first in Canada to introduce forensic evidence in a courtroom.

The letters are from Jens Müller, a Norwegian pilot who trained in Canada during the early days of World War II, one of only three prisoners who would make it home after “The Great Escape”. Tyler's unconventional memoir confirms that while you can survive your past, you can never escape from it.

Colville at the AGO
November 28, 2014
Featured Titles: Colville
2:00 pm at Art Gallery of Ontario, 317 Dundas Street West, Toronto, ON

As part of the Alex Colville major restrospective exhibition, the Art Gallery of Ontario presents a day of special screenings. On November 28, beginning at 2:00 pm, a number of films will be shown with connections to Alex Colville.

Sarah Polley's The Stories We Tell explores truth and memory, aging and loss. These themes feature prominently in Alex Colville, particularly in the paintings of Rhoda and Alex Colville, which emphasize a lifetime of engagement between artist and model, husband and wife. 

Set in 1965, Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom features the repeated visual quoting of Alex Colville’s iconic painting of the same year,To Prince Edward Island.

Alex Colville was deeply interested in the work of the Coen brothers, filmmakers who, like Colville, engage with the potential for evil, violence and danger within deceptively simple tales. No Country for Old Men with its layers of damaged and flawed characters, all profoundly marked by history and who reflect diverse embodiments of good and evil is set in a very distinct rural landscape. 

Stanley Kubrick, a filmmaker as obsessive about detail as Alex Colville, included four of Colville’s works in his masterpiece of horror The Shining with Horse and Train centrally positioned in a critical opening scene.
