      Gift (2019)

      Inspired by Lewis Hyde's beloved classic "The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World," GIFT is a tribute to something that can't be measured or counted, bought or sold. An intimate exploration of real-life gift economies, it's a reflection on the creative process, the reasons we labour in service of our gifts, and a celebration of the imagination. Profiles include Rome’s Metropoliz inhabited museum, which houses refugees and displaced people amongst its art, a Native American man’s preparation for a ritualistic parting with material goods known as potlatch, a Burning Man artist's giving project, an installation in which singers offer private musical performances to museum guests, and more. Just in time for the holidays, a look at another way of giving gifts... "At a time when art is relentlessly commercialized and commodified, Robin McKenna's 'Gift' provides a gentle and welcome reminder of other values." -NY Times "Assembles some powerful contemporary examples of everyday philanthropy as a vehicle for breaking down socioeconomic barriers and connecting us all." -Cinemalogue "You'll think the world is a better place... Don't be surprised if you're compelled to perform an unexpected act of generosity soon after seeing it." -Hollywood Reporter ***If you have a free Miniplex movie ticket and want to be sure you get a seat, please show up EARLY and exchange it for a ticket from the bartender/cashier in Richards' Goat Tavern.
