    Omar G. Encarnación, Professor of Political Studies, Bard College

    Known around the world as a bastion of Catholicism and machismo, Latin America has emerged in recent years as the undisputed gay rights leader of the Global South. Even more surprising is that several Latin American nations have surpassed many developed nations, including the United States, in legislating equality for the LGBT community. So how did this dramatic and unexpected expansion of gay rights come about? And why are Latin American nations diverging in their embrace of gay rights, a point highlighted by the paradoxical experiences of Argentina and Brazil?

    By Bertolt Brecht
    Translated by Frank McGuinness
    Directed by Courtney O'Connor

    September 29 - October 22, 2016
    Greene Theater

    When a noblewoman abandons her son in the heat of a civil war, the child is taken by a servant girl, who sacrifices everything in order to respectfully raise the young boy as her own. When the biological mother returns, it must be decided who is the rightful mother of the boy. This fresh and powerful translation of Brecht's incendiary masterpiece explores displacement, sacrifice, and classism, and will leave viewers inspired and impassioned.

    To show what the USA can learn from rest of the world, director Michael Moore playfully visits various nations in Europe and Africa as a one-man "invader" to take their ideas and practices for America. Whether it is Italy with its generous vacation time allotments, France with its gourmet school lunches, German with its industrial policy, Norway and its prison system, Tunisia and its strongly progressive women's policy and Iceland and its strong female presence in government and business among others, Michael Moore discovers there is much that American should emulate.

    Directed by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady, documentary, 91 minutes, USA, 2016.
    Arguably the most influential creator, writer, and producer in the history of television, Norman Lear brought primetime into step with the times. Using comedy and indelible characters, his legendary 1970s shows such as All In the Family, Maude, Good Times, and The Jeffersons, boldly cracked open dialogue and shifted the national consciousness, injecting enlightened humanism into sociopolitical debates on race, class, creed, and feminism.

    Book Celebration with Author and Professor Mneesha Gellman

    Democratization and Memories of Violence: Ethnic minority rights movements in Mexico, Turkey, and El Salvador examines how ethnic minority communities use memories of state and paramilitary violence to shame states into cooperating with minority cultural agendas such as the right to mother tongue education. Shaming and claiming is a social movement tactic that binds historic violence to contemporary citizenship. Combining theory with empirics, the book accounts for how democratization shapes citizen experiences of interest representation and how memorialization processes challenge state regimes of forgetting at local, state, and international levels. Democratization and Memories of Violence draws on six case studies in Mexico, Turkey, and El Salvador to show how memory-based narratives serve as emotionally salient leverage for marginalized communities to facilitate state consideration of minority rights agendas.

    Refreshments will be served.

    Eddie Glaude, Princeton University

    Honors Lecture/College-wide Diversity Teach-In Keynote

     If we are committed to American democracy, we have to work for transformative change. This will require a revolution of value that upends the belief that white people are valued more than others. It will require breaking the racial habits that give life to "the value gap." And it starts with changes in our social and political arrangements. A revolution of value seeks to uproot those of ways of seeing and living that allow Americans to support racial inequality and yet live in ways that suggest they believe otherwise. It is a revolution to close, once and for all, the value gap. It involves three basic components: (1) a change in how we view government; (2) a change in how we view black people; and (3) a change in how we view what ultimately matters to us as Americans.

    Anna Feder


     Directed by John Gianvito Philippines/US 2015, DCP, color, 277 min. English and Tagalog with English subtitles.
    An epic about the wages of US colonialism and militarism, this film is at once a captivating historical essay and an impassioned work of witnessing. Gianvito focuses this time on the suffering caused by environmental military waste after the Philippines' Subic Bay naval base was closed in 1992. As in Vapor Trail (Clark), Gianvito chronicles in depth the experiences of Filipinos contending with birth defects because of this waste. But he also amps up the history this time, uncovering a fascinating and disconcerting backlog of injustice and violence, illustrated with revealing, seldom-seen archival material.

    Over the past several years, Gianvito has emerged as one of this country's most impassioned political filmmakers, yet his passion emerges in equal parts anger, informed reason and compassion, and never as hysteria or hectoring. Here, besides recounting the shameful history and witnessing the lives of those affected, he also spends time with community activists and other locals. Above all, his intense commitment emerges cinematically: in the image, in the use of time and editing, in giving the audience information but also, crucially, time for empathy.

    Directed by Loretta Alper and Jeremy Earp, documentary, 82 minutes USA, 2016.
    Israel's ongoing military occupation of Palestinian territory and repeated invasions of the Gaza strip have triggered a fierce backlash against Israeli policies virtually everywhere in the world—except the United States. The Occupation of the American Mind takes an eye-opening look at this critical exception, zeroing in on pro-Israel public relations efforts within the U.S. Narrated by Roger Waters and featuring leading observers of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and U.S. media culture, the film explores how the Israeli government, the U.S. government, and the pro-Israel lobby have joined forces, often with very different motives, to shape American media coverage of the conflict in Israel's favor. From the U.S.-based public relations campaigns that emerged in the 1980s to today, the film provides a sweeping analysis of Israel's decades-long battle for the hearts, minds, and tax dollars of the American people in the face of widening international condemnation of its increasingly right-wing policies.

    "'Mala' means 'bad.' Not that you have done something bad, but that you are, in your core, bad."

    Funny, brutally honest, and ultimately cathartic, Mala puts a sharp focus on what it means to put our loved ones first, right to the very end, and what happens when we strive to be good, but don't always succeed. A world premiere production by ArtsEmerson, this powerful one-woman show by Melinda Lopez transports us into a world which is uniquely Cuban-American in its specifics, and universal in its power.

    An utterly unsentimental journey to the end of life and straight out the other side, Mala is an irreverent exploration of how we live, cope, and survive right now.

    Grounded in Lopez's distinctive emotional language and sharp humor, Mala dances between doctors, work, a mother's growing frailty, a daughter's quest for grace, an epic Boston winter, Arctic icebergs and 911 calls. Built from notes frantically tapped out on an iPhone, Mala forces us to confront the inevitable finality of our last moments with the people who raised us.

    Directed by Dawn Porter, documentary, 90 minutes, USA, 2016.

    From 2011 to 2013, hundreds of regulations were passed restricting access to abortion in America. Reproductive rights advocates refer to these as "TRAP" laws, or Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers. While these laws have been enacted in 11 states, Southern clinics, in particular have been hit hardest and are now in a fight for survival. Trapped interweaves the personal stories behind these regulatory battles: from the physician who crisscrosses the country assuring medical services are available; to the strong women and men who run the clinics; to the lawyers leading the legal charge to eliminate these laws; to the women they are all determined to help. In this feature length character-driven film, our main characters fight alongside a dedicated cadre of attorneys to preserve abortion rights in a country living with the mistaken belief that Roe v. Wade still protects a woman's right to choose.

    Discussion with director Dawn Porter to follow.

    "'Mala' means 'bad.' Not that you have done something bad, but that you are, in your core, bad."

    Funny, brutally honest, and ultimately cathartic, Mala puts a sharp focus on what it means to put our loved ones first, right to the very end, and what happens when we strive to be good, but don't always succeed. A world premiere production by ArtsEmerson, this powerful one-woman show by Melinda Lopez transports us into a world which is uniquely Cuban-American in its specifics, and universal in its power.

    An utterly unsentimental journey to the end of life and straight out the other side, Mala is an irreverent exploration of how we live, cope, and survive right now.

    Grounded in Lopez's distinctive emotional language and sharp humor, Mala dances between doctors, work, a mother's growing frailty, a daughter's quest for grace, an epic Boston winter, Arctic icebergs and 911 calls. Built from notes frantically tapped out on an iPhone, Mala forces us to confront the inevitable finality of our last moments with the people who raised us.

    Emerson Stage presents The House of Bernarda Alba!

    By Federico Garcia Lorca
    Translated by Caridad Svich
    Directed by Damon Krometis

    November 10-13, 2016
    Greene Theater

    Following the death of her husband, aging matriarch Bernarda Alba imposes eight years of cloistered mourning on her five unmarried daughters. Behind the house's barred windows and away from their mother's prying eyes, the imprisoned women violently yearn for freedom, which they project onto a young and duplicitous suitor. Avoiding Bernarda's iron grip, a storm of secret desires threatens to tear the house to the ground. Written mere months before his assassination by the Fascists during the Spanish Civil War, Lorca's final masterpiece explores the dangers of intolerance and authoritarian rule, in a form simultaneously domestic and mythic.

    Directed by Jeremy Sauliner, thriller, 95 minutes, USA, 2015.
    Down on their luck punk rockers The Ain't Rights are finishing up a long and unsuccessful tour, and are about to call it quits when they get an unexpected booking at an isolated, run-down club deep in the backwoods of Oregon. What seems merely to be a third-rate gig escalates into something much more sinister when they witness an act of violence backstage that they weren't meant to see. Now trapped backstage, they must face off against the club's depraved owner, Darcy Banker (Patrick Stewart), a man who will do anything to protect the secrets of his nefarious enterprise. But while Darcy and his henchmen think the band will be easy to get rid of, The Ain't Rights prove themselves much more cunning and capable than anyone expected, turning the tables on their unsuspecting captors and setting the stage for the ultimate life-or-death showdown.

    Directed by Craig Atkinson, documentary, 70 minutes, USA, 2016.
    Do Not Resist is an urgent and powerful exploration of the rapid militarization of the police in the United States. Opening on startling on-the-scene footage in Ferguson, Missouri, the film then broadens its scope to present scenes from across the country—a conference presentation where the value of high-end weapons technologies is presented to potential police buyers, a community that has just received its very own military-grade tank, and a SWAT team arriving at a home to execute a warrant. The cumulative effect of these vignettes paints a startling picture of the direction our local law enforcement is headed. Discussion with director and alum Craig Atkinson (MA '08) to follow.

    Directed by Peter Flynn, documentary, 95 minutes, USA, 2015.
    Largely unchanged for more than a century, the projection of photochemical film faces an uncertain future in the digital age. The practice of handing and projecting film is in danger of being lost, and the role of film projectionist is nearing extinction. The Dying of the Light explores at the history and craft of motion picture presentation through the lives and stories of the last generation of career projectionists. By turns humorous and melancholic, their candid reflections on life in the booth reveal a world that has largely gone unnoticed and is now at an end. The result is a loving tribute to the art and romance of the movies—and to the unseen people who brought the light to our screens.

    Discussion with director and VMA senior scholar-in-residence Peter Flynn to follow.

    Emerson Stage presents Mrs. Warren's Profession!

    By George Bernard Shaw
    Directed by Rebecca Bradshaw

    December 8-11, 2016
    Semel Theater

    Set in Victorian Britain, Mrs. Warren's Profession tells the story of Kitty Warren, a former prostitute and current brothel owner, and her daughter Vivie, an intelligent and pragmatic young woman who has recently graduated from university. As the two women become acquainted with each other for the first time, their stark differences force their relationship apart. Extremely socially advanced for the time, Shaw addresses issues of gender roles and the complexity of being female in Victorian times, still resonant today.

    1980. Communist Budapest. In a dance hall, a musician confesses his private sexual desire for his seven-year-old step-daughter. And his government is taping his every word. Under threat of being exposed as a pedophile, the musician is pressured into becoming a government informant leading to the arrest and murder of his best friend who had been running an anti-Communism underground newspaper.

    Under Prime Minister Viktor Orbán's increasingly nationalist government, Hungary's cultural scene has been rocked by a rapid return to government control of artistic choice. Béla Pintér and Company is dedicated to creating contemporary productions based on critical and ironic observations of Hungarian society.

    A genre-defying work of political theatre, Octavia E. Butler's Parable of the Sower brings to rousing musical life Butler's acclaimed science fiction novel of the same name. Written by Toshi Reagon, who Vibe Magazine called "one helluva rock'n'roller-coaster ride," in collaboration with her mother, Bernice Johnson Reagon, the iconic singer and founder of the vocal group Sweet Honey in the Rock, Parable of the Sower becomes a mesmerizing theatrical work of rare power and beauty that reveals deep insights on gender, race and the future of human civilization.

    Parable of the Sower harnesses 200 years of African-American song traditions to tell the story of young Lauren Olamina, who lives in a not-so-distant America, where climate change has driven society to violence and the brink of extinction. When she loses both family and home, Lauren ventures out unprotected. What begins as a desperate flight for survival leads to something much more – a startling vision of human destiny which births "Earthseed," a new faith-based on the idea that "God is Change."

Written by Toshi Reagon, who Vibe Magazine called "one helluva rock'n'roller-coaster ride," in collaboration with her mother, Bernice Johnson Reagon, the iconic singer and founder of the vocal group Sweet Honey in the Rock, Parable of the Sower becomes a mesmerizing theatrical work of rare power and beauty that reveals deep insights on gender, race and the future of human civilization.

    Parable of the Sower harnesses 200 years of African-American song traditions to tell the story of young Lauren Olamina, who lives in a not-so-distant America, where climate change has driven society to violence and the brink of extinction. When she loses both family and home, Lauren ventures out unprotected. What begins as a desperate flight for survival leads to something much more – a startling vision of human destiny which births "Earthseed," a new faith-based on the idea that "God is Change."

     The history of passports, smuggling Kentucky Fried Chicken into other countries, and the peculiarities of airline security—it's all covered in this miraculous, one-man saga that unpacks how the mundane details that govern global travel become the actual journey.

    17 Border Crossings is a surreal sojourn that transports us to very real places: Hungary, Serbia, Morocco, Colombia, Holland and Mexico, to name a few. In the deft, mischievous manner of the trickster, Phillips manages to float huge questions that surround the fraught migrations of our era.

    With all the childlike curiosity and adult skepticism of monologist Spalding Gray, and the theatrical wizardry of a Robert Lepage, Thaddeus Phillips takes audiences by the hand on a trip around the world and shows us that when we cross the imaginary lines that divide up the world, the real borders come to light.

    In a living room strewn with vinyl records, beer bottles and drug paraphernalia, a mustached man begins railing about his missing copy of Van Morrison's Astral Weeks album, and it seems he won't back down until the universe bestows upon him some elusive state of grace. Part Gonzo rock performance, part mental breakdown—all thrillingly theatrical—How To Be A Rock Critic pulls the greatest hits from Bangs' own legendary words to imagine a single night of his turbulent life.

    Inside his wild, all-night typewriter sessions, Lester Bangs embraced mistakes as strokes of genius, popularized now ubiquitous terms like "Heavy Metal" and "Punk Rock," and died of an overdose at the Biblical age of 33. Join us for an evening with music's great, lost critical voice.
