  • "The FCC Vote on Net Neutrality: What Happened, and What's Next?"

    3/03/15
    4:15 pm - 6:00 pm
    Little Building
    Beard Room

    In late December, the FCC told sources it would vote on a new set of network neutrality principles on February 26. The debate over these principles – which impacts the kind of work Emerson graduates undertake in particular – will determine the shape of our media landscape for generations to come. We'll take stock of what the FCC decides and examine the decision in the context of other crucial policy debates in the US and abroad.

  • Bright Lights: Joystick Warriors with panel discussion

    3/03/15
    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    A Media Education Foundation Production.
    Roger Sorkin, 56 min, USA, 2013
    For years, there's been widespread speculation about the relationship between violent video games and violence in the real world. Joystick Warriors provides the clearest account yet of the latest research on this issue. Drawing on the insights of media scholars, military analysts, combat veterans, and gamers themselves, the film trains its sights on the wildly popular genre of first-person shooter games, exploring how the immersive experience they offer links up with the larger stories we tell ourselves as a culture about violence, militarism, guns, and manhood. Along the way, it examines the game industry's longstanding working relationship with the U.S. military and the American gun industry, and offers a riveting examination of the games themselves — showing how they work to sanitize, glamorize, and normalize violence while cultivating dangerously regressive attitudes and ideas about masculinity and militarism.


    Panel discussion will follow led by Associate Producer Nina Huntemann.
    Nina B. Huntemann, Ph.D. is an associate professor of media studies at Suffolk University in the Department of Communication and Journalism. Her research focuses on new media technologies, particular video and computer games, and incorporates feminist, critical cultural studies and political economy perspectives. Most recently she co-edited with Matthew Thomas Payne the anthology Joystick Soldiers: The Politics of Play in Military Video Games (Routledge, 2010). She produced and directed the educational video, Game Over: Gender, Race and Violence in Video Games (2000), distributed by the Media Education Foundation, and is currently creating an update to that film. She has published several articles on the image of women in video games, women's use of the Internet for social change, and the political economy of the US commercial radio industry.

  • Language and Resistance: The Continuing Struggle for Freedom in Ireland

    3/04/15
    6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
    Walker Building
    Classroom 520

    Born into a family of activists, Feargal Mac Ionnrachtaigh's father was a political prisoner in Long Kesh in the 1970s, and his brother was murdered by British state agents in 1998, just before the signing of the Good Friday Peace agreement. Ionnrachtaigh was the first in his family to attend an Irish language school in Belfast during the bloody military occupation by the British army in the 1980s. Reflecting on his ground-breaking and unique research with Republican former prisoners, Ionnrachtaigh's book Language, Resistance and Revival: Republican Prisoners and the Irish Language in the North of Ireland analyzes the politics of incarceration in Long Kesh throughout the conflict in the North of Ireland, and reveals the centrality of the Irish language to prisoners' resistance in their bitter struggle against the British State and its policies of criminalization. A first generation Irish speaker, Ionnrachtaigh explores the lasting legacy beyond the prison walls of the Irish language revival within the Nationalist community, and the ongoing battle for social justice, through the 'insider' accounts of its main protagonists.

  • Bright Lights and Balagan present: Brle la mer (Burn the sea), Nathalie Nambot & Maki Berchache in 35mm

    3/05/15
    7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    75 minutes, 35mm, color, French and Arabic (subtitled in English)
    Through a collaboration with Balagan and collective Film Organics, we are very proud to present a brand new 35mm copy of Brûle la mer (Burn the Sea), made by Nathalie Nambot and Maki Berchache in 2014 and partially completed at the independent filmmakers' collective and laboratory L'abominable. A very special thanks to MoMA and the filmmakers for this fortuitous opportunity!

    Brûle la mer stands at the paradoxical crossroads between the lively energy of a revolution in progress (Tunisia), the momentum of a departure to Europe, and the violence of a welcome declined. The film targets what constitutes the sensitive framework of an existence at a time of rupture; that which is the smallest, the most common, far from exoticism, but haunted by a dream, like an exhortation. It is not a film about emigration or revolution, it is an essay on freedom, or rather an essay that stages freedom: a real and fictitious attempt to escape which involves the making of a film, taking part in the process of emancipation: burning the sea, borders, laws, papers, etc. What does it mean to break with one's past life, leave one's country and family in which, somehow or other, strong links of solidarity, mutual assistance and ancestral ties to the land still prevail, and join a world mythologized and dominated by capitalist relationships? What is meant by 'living one's life'?

    Up until 2009 Nathalie Nambot worked mainly as a theatre actress. She directed her first film Ami, entends tu in Moscow in 2010. She spends part of her time at L'abominable. She is also active with political collectives and illegal migrants fighting against social exclusion and repression.

    Maki Berchache was born in Zarzis, Tunisia. He left school early and worked in several hotels and tourist complexes on the South East coast of Tunisia. He arrived in France just after the fall of Ben Ali. He was introduced to cinema at L'abominable by Nicolas Rey and Nathalie Nambot.

  • Tristan & Yseult

    3/05/15
    7:30 pm - 9:45 pm
    Cutler Majestic Theatre
    Tickets start at $25

    Kneehigh's Tristan & Yseult elevates this classic love triangle to epic proportions – complete with forbidden desires, broken hearts and tender truths. This innovative tale finds King Mark of Cornwall at war – ruling with his head, not his heart. But he hasn't counted on falling head over heels for his enemy's sister Yseult, or on the arrival of the enigmatic Tristan. Using music from Irving Berlin to Bob Marley, Kneehigh's thrill-ride of a production blends comedy, live music and jaw-dropping theatricality for a night of theatre as hilarious as it is moving.

  • Love's Labor's Lost

    3/06/15
    7:00 pm - 9:45 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room
    $18.00 (Emerson discounts apply)

     

    MARCH 6-8th, 7pm

    Director: Christopher Luscombe

    Synopsis: Summer 1914. In order to dedicate themselves to a life of study, the King and his friends take an oath to avoid the company of women for three years. No sooner have they made their pledge than the Princess of France and her ladies-in-waiting arrive, presenting them with a severe test of resolve.
    Shakespeare's sparkling comedy delights in championing and then unravelling an unrealistic vow, mischievously suggesting that the study of the opposite sex is in fact the highest of all academic endeavours. Only at the end of the play is the merriment curtailed as the lovers agree to submit to a period apart, unaware that the world around them is about to be utterly transformed by the war to end all wars.

    Christopher Luscombe directs one acting company in both Love's Labour's Lost and Love's Labour's Won (usually known as Much Ado About Nothing).

  • Bright Lights: Who Is Vermin Supreme? An Outsider Odyssey

    3/17/15
    7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Steve Onderick Onderick, 100 minutes, US, 2014
    Vermin Supreme is no ordinary presidential candidate. Promising a free pony for every American, a fully funded time travel research program, and unprecedented zombie preparedness initiatives for a new American Republic, he truly is the people's candidate and the friendly fascist par excellence. Who Is Vermin Supreme? An Outsider Odyssey follows Vermin Supreme's raucous 2012 campaign from the Rainbow Gathering in the the Cherokee National Forest to the Democratic and Republican National Conventions to Occupy Wall Street protests, and all the way to heart of the American Empire in Washington, DC. From the unsettling gravitas of marauding riot police to the unbridled joy of songs sung for police officers and pranks played on anti-abortion fanatics, Who Is Vermin Supreme? is certain to show you America as you've never seen it before.

    Filmmaker Steve Onderick will be in attendance.

  • "Unanticipated: New Strategies for Dealing with the Future"

    3/26/15
    6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
    Little Building
    Beard Room

    Honors Lecture with David Weinberger, Senior Researcher, Berkman Center for Internet & Society, Harvard University

    Every now and then our idea of how the future works changes. Our old idea of progress is coming undone as we see the virtues of open platforms, remixing culture and forking code. Big Data and step-by-step algorithms are giving us a very different idea of what makes the world predictable. In these ways and more, we are now beginning to view the future very differently -- less like a path through possibilities and more like a network. We'll explore some of these changes, looking at their origins and what they might mean for our basic way of dealing with the future.

  • Bright Lights: Rocks in My Pockets with director Signe Baumane

    3/26/15
    7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Signe Baumane, 88 minutes, USA/Latvia, 2014
    In the new animated gem Rocks in My Pockets, Latvian-born artist and filmmaker Signe Baumane tells five fantastical tales based on the courageous women in her family and their battles with madness. With boundless imagination and a twisted sense of humor, she has created daring stories of art, romance, marriage, nature, business, and Eastern European upheaval—all in the fight for her own sanity. Employing a unique, beautifully textured combination of papier-mâché stop-motion and classic hand-drawn animation (with inspiration from Jan Svankmajer and Bill Plympton), Baumane has produced a poignant and often hilarious tale of mystery, mental health, redemption and survival.
    Discussion with filmmaker Signe Baumane will follow the screening.

    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Michel Gondry, 88minutes, France, 2013
    From Michel Gondry, the innovative director of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep, comes this unique animated documentary on the life of controversial MIT professor, philosopher, linguist, anti-war activist and political firebrand Noam Chomsky. Through complex, lively conversations with Chomsky and brilliant illustrations by Gondry himself, the film reveals the life and work of the father of modern linguistics while also exploring his theories on the emergence of language. The result is not only a dazzling, vital portrait of one of the foremost thinkers of modern times, but also a beautifully animated work of art. Discussion with VMA faculty who contributed to the production will follow.
