Sweet Relief Musicians Fund Auctions Tom Petty Signed Rickenbacker

first_imgA new auction benefiting the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund is giveing you the chance to get your hands on a guitar made specially for Tom Petty.Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Signed RickenbackerRickenbacker created this guitar especially for Tom to sign in support of Sweet Relief, and it is truly a one-of-a-kind instrument. The exquisite details and custom finish have never appeared together on a Rickenbacker, and the vintage TV knobs, F soundhole and checkered binding were just of few of the incredible details that blew us away. On September 17th, Sweet Relief took the guitar to KAABOO in Del Mar, CA for Tom and the Heartbreakers to sign, and Tom was so impressed with the guitar that he wanted to keep it for himself! Of course he happily signed the guitar and went on to perform an awesome set, closing the night, as always, with “American Girl.”

Sweet Relief are now auctioning the guitar, as Tom intended, to raise funds for their Rob Max Elder Musicians Fund, which is named for their own recently passed Executive Director. Rob was passionate about the plight of Elder musicians in today’s landscape.If you’d like to place your bid, CLICK HERE.last_img read more

The way Nordoff Robbins uses the power of music to bring everyone together is extraordinary. It creates this personal language so people can express themselves. I’m honoured to receive this award, thank you.”George Ezra said: “I am honoured to be receiving the AEG Presents Best Male award at this year’s O2 Silver Clef Awards! Music is such a universal power for good and I’ve heard so much about the great work that Nordoff Robbins do – it’s an honour to support a charity who are dedicated to helping so many people through music.”Irish rock band The Script were presented with the Raymond Weil International Award, classical duo Michael Ball and Alfie Boe received the PPL Classical Award, and Rudimental were awarded the Bose Innovation Award.

So, to be supporting this charity through this event feels very special to us.”Jorja Smith said: “Thank you so much. This means a lot. After I went to the Nordoff Robbins Music centre, I realised how important music really is. It removes a barrier and enables us to communicate with people in a different way.

As passionate live music fans, we love celebrating the work of the world’s most talented artists who grace the stages at The O2 and our O2 Academy venues nationwide. But we’re even bigger fans of the work Nordoff Robbins do delivering thousands of music therapy sessions every year in care homes, hospitals, schools and their own growing list of day centres around the UK. I’ve visited these Nordoff Robbins centres, and seen for myself just what an important part music, and the charity, play in people’s lives. Not just for those receiving the therapy, but their families too.”Nordoff Robbins CEO Julie Whelan said: “The O2 Silver Clef Awards are one of the reasons why Nordoff Robbins is able to continue delivering life-changing music therapy to so many people facing some of the biggest challenges who desperately need our help. For 43 years this event has celebrated the best names in music, whilst raising over £10.5 million for our charity to date.

ONE OF MY FAVOURITE CITIES DWAYNE THE ROCK JOHNSON SHARES HIS LOVE

first_imgAdvertisement Actor and former wrestling superstar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has taken to Instagram to share a personal story about his connection to the city of Vancouver – and how it helped him overcome adversity.Johnson is in Vancouver filming the action blockbuster Skyscraper.The video, which was posted Tuesday night, opens with Johnson standing on a balcony overlooking English Bay, and panning the camera to show the unmistakably smokey view. Twitter “I’ve got to show you guys this view, it is spectacular, of one of my favourite cities in the world, Vancouver, Canada,” Johnson said. Advertisement Johnson said he’s “shed [his] blood and sweat” in Vancouver over the course of multiple wrestling matches and film shoots.But there’s one experience that will always connect him to the city:“One thing a lot of people don’t know, that I want to share with you guys, is when I was 22 years old, I came to this city for the first time, I was playing in the Canadian Football League, playing my first pro football game,” Johnson said.“I was playing for the Calgary Stampeders, we were playing the BC Lions, I was so excited. Two days later I got cut, dreams shattered, sent home with seven bucks in my pocket.”It was, at the time, a seemingly insurmountable obstacle to his life’s dream of playing in the NFL the Fast and Furious star told fans. But years later, from a position of success he looked back and saw the situation differently.“[I] realized that playing in the NFL was the best thing that never happened, because it got me here.”Johnson finishes by telling his audience the lesson he learned is that the one thing we think we want, may turn out to be the wrong path.“So just have faith, and just keep that in mind and keep plugging away.”Johnson will be co-starring in Skyscraper with Neve Campbell and Pablo Schreiber, and is expected to be in town filming until November.IMDB describes the film, which is slated for a 2018 release, as a “hostage-action-thriller set in China.center_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Facebook Login/Register With: Advertisementlast_img read more

Oscar Nominee and Canadian Legend Dan Aykroyd Creates the Official Caesar of

first_imgOscar Nominee and Canadian Legend Dan Aykroyd Creates the Official Caesar of 2018 (CNW Group/National Caesar Day) TORONTO, April 4, 2018 – Some things are a natural fit. Bread and butter. Salt and pepper. Legendary Canadian and legendary Canadian cocktail. Now the final pair can be enjoyed thanks to Dan Aykroyd!The Saturday Night Live Alumnus, Oscar Nominee, Ghost Busters co-creator and legendary comedian is showcasing his Canadian roots by creating the official Caesar of 2018.“When I learned Canadians consumed more than 407 million Caesars last year alone and that a group of Caesar-loving Canadians created a day just to celebrate Canada’s Cocktail, I knew I wanted to be a part of it,” said Aykroyd. Advertisement Login/Register With: Advertisement Each Thursday before the May long weekend, Canadians celebrate National Caesar Day to honour Canada’s Cocktail, as declared by Parliament in 2009. Now in its fourth year, Dan Aykroyd is joining the team to create the official Caesar of 2018, which he calls “The Hot Head Caesar.”A zesty take on the classic, Aykroyd blends fresh garlic, lime juice, and Sriracha sauce with his own Crystal Head vodka and Mott’s Clamato. Unlike traditional recipes however, there’s one thing missing – the garnish!“A Caesar this great deserves something more inspired than a celery stalk,” said Aykroyd of his Hot Head Caesar. “I’ve seen Canadians create some spectacular garnishes over the years, so I want their help to choose the best one for my Caesar.”Whether it’s the most elaborate, appealing, or creative garnish, Canadians will be able to submit their recommendations for Aykroyd to review at www.GarnishDansCaesar.ca. The Canadian who suggests his favourite garnish will join him in Toronto on National Caesar Day where they’ll toast Canada’s favourite new holiday with the Caesar they created together.Canadians can enter from April 2nd until May 2nd and the winner will be announced on May 7th, 2018. Hot Head Caesar– 1 Tsp chopped garlic– 1 Tsp Sriracha Hot Sauce– 2 Quarter Wedges Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice– 1.5 oz Crystal Head Vodka– 4 oz Mott’s ClamatoRim high ball glass with spicy seasoning of your choice, add garlic, hot sauce, lime juice, Crystal Head vodka and muddle.

A ZOMBIE FLICK AND A FAKE COUNTRY MUSIC VIDEO HOW TWO QUEBEC

first_imgAdvertisement Login/Register With: Aubert actually had two films — Tuktuq and Les Affamés(Ravenous) — in contention at last week’s Quebec Cinema Gala. But it was the latter production — a bloody, brutal treatment of a village in rural Quebec overrun by face-eating zombies — that took the Best Film prize. A scene from the 2017 Quebec film Les Affames (Ravenous). (LES FILMS SEVILLE) Advertisement Twittercenter_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment MONTREAL—Quebec’s francophone entertainment universe is small but prolific. It tends to punch above its weight in most per capita calculations.But its cultural industries still face the same pitfalls: successful business formulas are often imposed upon creative products in the expectation that the box-office successes will also be repeated.However the recent laurels for film director Robin Aubert and, separately, for singer-songwriter Philippe Brach have proven there is still room for players with talent and the will to flip the script on Quebec’s cultural moulds.

Equifax faces growing scrutiny as CAA says thousands may be impacted

first_imgTORONTO – Equifax Canada is facing intensifying calls for transparency on its massive cyberhack as the Canadian Automobile Association informs thousands of its members that their data may have been compromised and frustrated consumers ask questions about why they’re being treated worse than their U.S. counterparts.CAA said Thursday it partnered with Equifax on its identity protection program and is notifying the roughly 10,000 members who participated that they may have had sensitive data divulged in the security breach made public last week.The auto organization’s program required members to register their personal information such as credit cards, banking information and email address, with the option of providing a social insurance number.It appears that the sensitive information of CAA members who signed up for the identity protection program was stored with Equifax USA, said Ian Jack, CAA managing director of communications and government relations.The company has shied away from public comment, however Equifax Canada’s customer service agents have told callers that only Canadians who have had dealings in the United States are likely to have had their information compromised in the data breach. That includes those who have lived, worked or applied for credit south of the border.“Equifax has not been forthcoming with information to us despite our repeated requests,” Jack said.The identity protection program began in March 2015 and was terminated on July 1, weeks before Equifax discovered the hack on July 29.Jack said the CAA has been trying since the first reports of the Equifax breach surfaced to determine if it affects any of its approximately 10,000 members who signed up for the program. It is also writing to Canada’s privacy commissioner to express concern and ask that they push Equifax to provide more information to Canadians.“We value our members’ privacy. Our contract with Equifax explicitly said customer data would be governed by Canada’s privacy law, PIPEDA,” Jack said.“We chose them as a partner because of their then high reputation. CAA did not handle or retain any of the information provided to Equifax.”Equifax Canada did not respond to requests Thursday from The Canadian Press.The development comes as Canadians who are worried they might be victims of the Equifax Inc. voice concern they are being treated as an afterthought in the wake of one of the largest online data breaches in history.Equifax Inc. said last Thursday that a security breach occurred over the summer that compromised the private information of up to 143 million Americans, along with a undisclosed number of Canadians.But the company has not provided further details, including how many Canadians may have been exposed.The company has provided consumers in the U.S. with a website that shows whether they are at risk of identity theft and is allowing them to monitor their files for free for one year.But the online database does not provide Canadians with accurate information because it is based on U.S. social security numbers. The Equifax Canada website says it costs $19.95 per month for the monitoring service.Toronto lawyer Frances Macklin said she is frustrated that Canadians are more in the dark than U.S. consumers and questioned why there isn’t a dedicated portal for consumers north of the border.“We’re equally affected. Just because I don’t have a social security number, I don’t get access to information,” said the partner at Gowlings law firm. “I’m completely bewildered by that.”Communications expert Warren Weeks believes Equifax could not have handled this issue in a worse way.“We’re talking about the gateway to all of your financial information in your life,” said Weeks, owner of communications firm Weeks Media Group.“And Canadians, in specific, don’t know if they’ve been targeted or not or they’ve been impacted or not? I think in 2017, that’s unacceptable.”However, he added, it’s common for a Canadian subsidiary to be told to keep tight-lipped by its U.S. parent when issues arise.Equifax may also be under more regulatory pressure in the U.S. than in Canada, said Tamir Israel, a staff lawyer with the Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic in Ottawa.The U.S. has federal regulations in place that govern credit reporting companies such as Equifax, which outline both proper business practices and identity theft, Israel said.“If they don’t deal with this issue appropriately, [that law] is likely to get expanded to address whatever shortcomings they had.”In Canada, credit reporting agencies are regulated by individual provinces and territories, he added.“Because of that mismatch, it falls through the cracks a little.”last_img read more

Vancouver hoping to drive tourism dollars with free public WiFi expansion

first_imgVANCOUVER – The City of Vancouver expects its visitor experience and economic success to get a boost after expanding its number of free public Wi-Fi locations from 80 to 550 through a partnership with Shaw Communications Inc.Mayor Gregor Robertson says the substantial increase in free Wi-Fi access throughout the city’s downtown core and surrounding areas supports Vancouver’s tourism and economic success, and bolsters its status as “a leading Smart City.”While about 550 free public Wi-Fi locations are currently active, a spokesman for the city says that number will increase to 600 locations in the coming months.The impetus for the expansion dates back to 2014, when Vancouver began a process to solicit applications from telecommunications service providers to provide free public Wi-Fi at no cost to the city.After 42 locations were equipped with free Wi-Fi in 2015, Shaw was chosen for the second phase in 2016 to provide 15 locations and the current third phase.All locations can be viewed by visiting vancouver.ca/wifi.(Companies in this story:TSX:SJR-B)last_img read more

Group of Canadian channels make their case for retaining status as mandatory

first_imgOTTAWA – Canada’s broadcasting regulator is holding three days of public hearings into licence renewals for a number of TV channels that are currently mandatory on basic packages that digital TV distributors are required to offer.The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission will decide whether the channels will continue to be designated mandatory on so-called “skinny” TV packages costing no more than $25 per month.A loss of the mandatory designation by the CRTC would force smaller, specialized Canadian channels to compete for limited spots on the lineup provided by cable, phone and satellite service providers.Among those scheduled to speak Monday was Aboriginal Peoples Television Network Inc., national French language services from TV5 Quebec Canada and Vues & Voix, a national French-language audio service.Earlier, the operator of the Weather Network and MeteoMedia said it wants TV distributors to be clearly required to carry both services, to serve both English and French audiences.Pelmorex Weather Networks (Television) Inc. says some TV distributors have interpreted the current rules to mean they are only permitted to carry one service or the other but not both.last_img read more

Trump assails Canadian tariffs accuses people of smuggling US goods home

first_imgOTTAWA – While Donald Trump launched his latest tirade against the familiar Canadian targets of tariffs and dairy, nervous opposition MPs demanded answers on how to defend against the president’s next expected attack — potentially crippling auto tariffs.The Trump administration has already imposed punishing tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum from Canada, Mexico and the European Union, using national security as a justification.But it is the investigation launched by the Department of Commerce — using the same national security clause — into whether tariffs should be slapped on cars and light trucks entering the U.S. that sparked major concern Tuesday for Conservative and New Democrat MPs.Three MPs from the two parties — all representing auto-dependent Ontario ridings — pushed Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland for answers on the government’s strategy.Freeland, who was testifying before House of Commons trade committee, wouldn’t tip the government’s hand, but she committed to hitting back hard with retaliation similar to Canada’s $16.6 billion response to the new U.S. metal tariffs.“We absolutely understand the centrality of the automotive sector to our economy, to our relationship with the U.S. and to NAFTA,” Freeland said.But Conservative MP Colin Carrie, who represents Oshawa, pushed for more.“We know all that, and respectfully I thank you for your work on that, but what we don’t know is: what is the plan?”Carrie echoed the concern of New Democrat trade critic Tracey Ramsey, who cited Monday’s TD Economics report that said auto tariffs could result in the loss of one in five auto sector jobs and create permanent “scarring” of the Canadian economy.Ramsey said the government needs “a comprehensive auto strategy that isn’t just about a pool of money but also a strategy across the board in our own country to combat the threat of these tariffs.”Carrie said he was worried about the government’s ability to craft a plan given it is running deficits and doesn’t have a lot of fiscal room to deal with what he called the “eventuality” of U.S. auto tariffs.“For my community that is an emergency. For Ontario that’s an emergency, for our economy that’s an emergency.”Freeland said Canada was working on a response that was “firm, clear and resolute” like its response to the steel and aluminum tariffs.“Our preparations in support of the auto sector are equally detailed and our support will be equally firm and clear and that’s a commitment.”Moments before Freeland’s testimony, Trump unleashed a fresh attack, accusing Canadians of sneaking their American shopping back home — all because of what he calls “massive” tariffs on American goods.Speaking to a gathering of small business owners in Washington, Trump again blasted the North American Free Trade Agreement, saying the U.S. can no longer afford to be the “stupid country.”Canada imposes such onerous tariffs on U.S. products — shoes, for instance — that people are forced to “scuff ’em up” in order to “smuggle” them home, the president said, seemingly confusing tariffs with duties.Trump said he’s looking out for American farmers and manufacturers, as he again took issue with Canada’s supply management system for dairy farmers.Freeland told the committee the “absurd and insulting” U.S. metal tariffs will be met with a firm response on July 1.The government has finished consulting Canadians on its proposed list of American consumer goods — dozens of items from Kentucky bourbon, to candles, to felt-tipped pens — and will be making some tweaks on which will be slapped with new duties, Freeland said.“We will be using that feedback to modify the list,” she said. “We will not escalate, and we will not back down.”Freeland met last week with Trump trade czar Robert Lighthizer and spoke to him Monday by phone. She also spoke with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo over the weekend. She said Canada, Mexico and the U.S. will continue negotiating NAFTA through the summer and that she is convinced there is “goodwill” moving forward.Earlier Tuesday, the official Opposition called for an emergency debate in the House of Commons over the future of Canada-U.S. trade relations.Conservative foreign affairs critic Erin O’Toole said Canadians need to see their elected representatives addressing what is the biggest economic crisis in their lifetime. But Commons Speaker Geoff Regan said the issue did not meet the requirements for an emergency debate.last_img read more

Canadian malls add genderneutral bathrooms to promote inclusivity

first_imgTORONTO — Shoppers at one of Canada’s biggest and busiest malls can now use the same bathroom regardless of whether they identify as male or female as Yorkdale Shopping Centre opened its first gender-neutral bathroom.The Toronto mall is the latest public space to offer such washrooms as schools, restaurants, community centres and other institutions move to be more inclusive.“The new washroom provides an inclusive option for anyone, including transgender people, people of diverse gender identities and those who may require accompaniment of some kind,” reads a statement from the mall.The 10-stall washroom has been open to the public for just under two weeks and is in addition to the mall’s seven men’s and women’s washrooms respectively, two family facilities, three nursing rooms and several single toilets.“Yorkdale strives to offer shoppers and employees the choice to use whichever option is most comfortable to them,” the mall said.The shopping centre is not the first mall to do so.Real-estate company Ivanhoe Cambridge, which operates 28 shopping centres across Canada, has had what it refers to as universal washrooms for some time now.“We identified the need for such facilities sometime ago,” said Roman Drohomirecki, executive vice-president and chief operating officer of retail, as it is the company’s intention to provide shoppers and retail partners with a safe, inviting environment.Starting with its Vaughan Mills retail outlet north of Toronto in 2012, the company has added 20 universal washrooms at nine of if its properties, he said, and there are ongoing plans for additional facilities at other locations.“All of our new projects incorporate design-built universal washrooms. All of our renovations or redevelopments call for the addition of universal washrooms beyond our gender specific and family washrooms. In our centres, a universal bathroom is for one single person at the time.”Cadillac Fairview and Morguard, both which own several malls in Canada, did not immediately respond to a request for comment about gender-neutral bathrooms at their facilities.Several other public places have incorporated gender-neutral bathroom facilities.The Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto also has a non-gender specific washroom with multiple stalls — as do several Canadian restaurants and universities.Some community centres and swimming pools around the country also boast inclusive changing rooms.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Young professionals leaving Vancouver over high cost of housing

first_imgThe Canadian Press VANCOUVER — Iain Reeve and his wife moved from rental home to rental home in Vancouver but their final solution for secure housing was to move to Ottawa and buy two houses — one for them and another for his parents.He and his wife, Cassandra Sclauzero, are professionals in their mid-30s who wanted to start a family but they couldn’t afford to buy in the city.“We wanted to own a home to have stability, and peace of mind and flexibility,” Reeve said.“The rental market didn’t have stability. We both had settled into pretty good first jobs. But as much as we loved the city and had these connections it wasn’t worth it.”They were “kicked out” of a few places in three years through no fault of their own, he said, adding that it was because people were selling or flipping properties.Reeve grew up and went to university in Vancouver.“I also have parents who live in the Vancouver area who don’t own a home and are working class and not a ton of money saved for retirement, and I’m an only child,” he said. We just couldn’t even get our foot in the door in terms of stable housing.”    Reeve said he knows a number of people who are thinking of moving out of the city simply because of the housing market.  “Life is challenging enough, it’s so hard when you have (housing) insecurity all the time.”Statistics show that Vancouver, and B.C. generally, is losing skilled workers to other parts of the country.CMHC spokesman Leonard Catling said one of the main reasons people between the ages of 21 and 25 come to Metro Vancouver is for university but they move out as they get older.A December news release from Statistics Canada shows that B.C.’s population crossed the five million mark for the first time because of international migration.However, it lost about 1,200 people to other provinces in the third quarter of 2018 after 21 quarters of gains. Ontario, Alberta and Nova Scotia had the largest gains in population from other provinces.Andy Yan, director of the City Program at Simon Fraser University, said Vancouver is mostly able to attract people early in their careers, whether they come for education or a job, but it has a problem retaining talent.Even if they earn a relatively high wage, he said they can’t afford anything except condominiums.“In a world like that, the labour pool has options,” he said, noting that other provinces offer much more housing for their salaries.Finance Minister Carole James said in an interview “there’s no question that Vancouver is facing a brain drain.” “Crisis is not too strong a word to describe the challenges we are facing, not just in Vancouver, but other urban settings around our province,” she said. In her budget speech last year, she said young professionals are moving out of the province because they can’t find housing.Yan said Vancouver is losing people in certain age groups. Those between 35 and 45 are usually at the apex of their careers and thinking about their first or second child. But they might find themselves still having to share housing if they stay in Vancouver, he said.“It doesn’t become cool when you’re 37 and have a roommate.”In its December report on the housing market, the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver pegged the average price of a detached home at a little more than $1 million. An apartment was about $664,100 and an attached home stood at about $809,700.Figures from BC Assessment, the Crown agency that develops and maintains property assessments in the province, show the housing market is moderating with estimated value of some homes in Metro Vancouver dropping about 10 per cent.Nationally, experts have said higher interest rates and a new mortgage stress test have also had an impact on property prices across the country.Yan said despite those changes housing in the Vancouver area remains unaffordable.Kevin Olenick, who is in his mid-40s, moved back to Vancouver earlier this year. He grew up in Calgary and spent about six months in Kamloops.“I’m one of the minority who would say moving back here makes sense,” he said, adding that the creative field he works in provides for more opportunities in Vancouver than in other places.But he said he understands the challenges of living in Vancouver.“You wouldn’t want to move here if you have a family. It’s especially tough to find a home and buy a home,” he said. “I’m renting … but if you’re looking to start a family I can certainly understand why you’re moving out of Vancouver.”B.C. Ministry of Housing spokeswoman Melanie Kilpatrick said the government has announced measures that are helping to cool the real estate market and moderate prices with a 30-point housing plan.Yan said that a study he did in 2018 shows that while home prices in Metro Vancouver were still the highest in Canada, median household income was the lowest. The study also showed that Vancouver remained the least affordable city in the country. Since both ownership and rental is becoming more and more difficult, other problems with the labour force are becoming clearer, he said.James said the government is aware of the problem and working on it.Jas Johal, the jobs critic for the B.C. Liberal party, said the NDP government needs to focus on increasing the supply of housing, not taxes. The NDP government has limited rent increases to 2.5 per cent per year, starting this month. A speculation and vacancy tax was also introduced, aimed at moderating the housing market and creating more homes for renters.But Yan said neither the speculation tax nor the vacancy tax will make much of a difference and if the city continues to lose workers it will lose its competitive edge.“And I think that one of the biggest challenges is that how do you build an economy — one that’s knowledge based — when that population seems to be leaving the city?”last_img read more

Alberta to fight for full value of its natural gas

first_imgEDMONTON, A.B. – The Province of Alberta is fighting for the full value of its natural gas.The Alberta Government announced that is creating a Liquefied Natural Gas Investment Team to work directly with the industry on reducing barriers for securing final investment decisions on export projects that will increase the value of natural gas resources.This announcement comes after a key recommendation of Alberta’s Natural Gas Advisory Panel, appointed in May 2018 to provide advice to the Minister of Energy on short and medium-term actions Alberta can take to address persistently undervalued natural gas and extreme price volatility due to transmission, storage and market access challenges. Alberta Minister of Energy, Margaret McCuaig-Boyd, says the Province needed to come up with a way of raising the value of Alberta’s oil and natural gas.“Whether we’re talking about oil or natural gas, the details are different but the story is the same. Albertans are getting pennies on the dollar because we can’t get our resources to international markets, and our biggest customer has become our biggest competitor. We can’t sit on the fence like previous governments did. We must take the bull by the horns and fight for the full value of our natural gas.”The Investment Team will consist of five members that will advise and work with the industry on getting more value for natural gas.The Investment Team is part of a broader made-in-Alberta oil and gas strategy that includes the aggressive expansion of energy upgrading opportunities within the province as the government takes short-term action to address the oil price differential crisis.last_img read more

Netflix releases ‘Delhi Crime’

first_imgNew Delhi: ‘Delhi Crime’, based on Nirbhaya case files, explores the 2012 heinous gangrape and murder from the viewpoint of the Delhi Police team that probed the incident, but Netflix’s new web series was shot with a non-judgemental eye, says director Richie Mehta. The seven-part series, which started streaming on March 22, directed by the Indian-Canadian filmmaker follows the investigation to nab the six males who raped the 23-year-old physiotherapy intern on a cold December night in a moving bus in the national capital. She died of her grievous injuries 13 days later in a Singapore hospital. Also Read – I have personal ambitions now: PriyankaMehta said it was a family friend serving in Delhi Police who suggested him to make a film on the subject. He started the research in 2013 after a trial court convicted and gave death sentence to the four adult defendants. After four years of research and writing, the director said he came up with a 170-page bible followed by 430-page script, wherein he has explored the perspective of “the people who were in the front lines”. “I realised they have a point of view on these things that we don’t talk about. We had a very visceral reaction to this particular case and these are the people who are doing it every day. So why aren’t we talking to them and getting their points of view?” Mehta said. Also Read – Salman Khan remembers actor Vinod KhannaThe director, known for films like Amal and Siddharth, has not depicted the act of gangrape in the series neither in visuals nor audio. “I was very clear from the beginning that I didn’t want to showcase the rape scene because I wanted the series to be about the procedure, not the crime,” he said. Mehta said the team filmed the series as if they were a “bystander”, sneaking up to see and listen in to what was happening. After Leslie Udwin’s 2015 documentary India’s Daughter and Deepa Mehta-directed drama Anatomy of Violence in 2016, ‘Delhi Crime’ is the latest project to bring the highly publicised case.last_img read more
