  • Hearts and Minds with Peter Davis

    4/01/15
    7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Many times during his presidency, Lyndon B. Johnson said that ultimate victory in the Vietnam War depended upon the U.S. military winning the "hearts and minds" of the Vietnamese people. Filmmaker Peter Davis uses Johnson's phrase in an ironic context in this anti-war documentary, filmed and released while the Vietnam War was still under way, juxtaposing interviews with military figures like U.S. Army Chief of Staff William C. Westmoreland with shocking scenes of violence and brutality.

    In his multifaceted career as a journalist, documentary filmmaker, and author, Peter Davis has courageously addressed some of the most explosive issues and events of our time: student rebellion, homosexuality, the Six-Day War, racism,poverty, the Vietnam War, and the disintegration of the American dream.
    Among his screen works, Hearts and Minds (1974) received the Academy Award and Prix Sadoul (France); The Selling of the Pentagon (for CBS News,1971) received an Emmy and a Peabody and generated a political firestorm for the network and the Pentagon; and Middletown, the landmark six-part series for PBS (1982), was nominated for 10 Emmys. He covered the Iraq war for The Nation and his first novel, The Girl of My Dreams, set in 1930s Hollywood, will be published in May.

    Lecture with filmmaker, author and journalist Peter Davis

    Peter Davis will discuss the changing portrayal of war in media coverage from Vietnam to Iraq, with film and TV excerpts. A filmmaker, author, and journalist, Peter Davis is the son of screenwriters Frank Davis and Tess Slesinger. After graduating from Harvard University with an A.B. in English Literature, Davis worked for the New York Times and served in the U.S. Army. After his service, he worked as a journalist and documentary writer on a number of projects focusing on student rebellion, homosexuality, slavery, the Six Day War, racism and hunger in America. The Selling of the Pentagon, his 1971 film for CBS News, won the Peabody, Emmy, Polk, Ohio State, Saturday Review and Writers Guild Awards. Hearts and Minds, Davis' film about American military action in Vietnam, won the Academy Award for Best Feature Documentary in 1974. He has written three nonfiction books: Hometown (1982), Where Is Nicaragua? (1987), and If You Came This Way (1995), and also covered the U.S. War in Iraq for The Nation magazine.

  • "Where Politics Meet the Intimate"

    4/06/15
    6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
    Little Building
    Beard Room

    The talk will delve into the issues which Gilad Evron deals with as a playwright and screenplay writer living in Israel and responding to the events transpiring there. By examining several excerpts from his work, he will discuss questions including: how to develop the intimate dimension in dramatic writing through dialogue with the political, and how to relate to events and people in a political and social context without falling into the trap of propaganda and superficiality.

    Gilad Evron is an Israeli playwright, screenwriter and author. His first script, Bread, was produced by Israeli television in 1985. Evron continued to write for Israeli television and cinema, but turned also to the theater. His first play, Rain, was brought to the stage in 1988. Since then, Evron's plays have been presented at Israel's major theaters and theater festivals, winning recognition and several awards.

    Emerson College will be one of the first places in the nation to screen The Mask You Live In.

    The Manhattan Project: A Theory of a City

    Walter Benjamin did not commit suicide in 1940. Escaping the Nazis, he managed to sail to New York, where he lived a long and solitary life until his death in 1987. During his anonymous, posthumous existence, while he was haunting and haunted by his new city, Benjamin composed a sequel to his Arcades Project. Just as his incomplete masterpiece revolved around Paris, capital of the nineteenth century, this spectral text was dedicated to New York, capital of the twentieth. This, at least, is the premise of The Manhattan Project. A sui generis work of experimental scholarship or fictional philosophy, it is a study of a manuscript that was never written.

  • Bright Lights: Pride

    4/07/15

    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Set in the summer of 1984 – Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) is on strike. At the Gay Pride March in London, a group of gay and lesbian activists decides to raise money to support the families of the striking miners. But there is a problem. The Union seems embarrassed to receive their support.

    But the activists are not deterred. They decide to ignore the Union and go direct to the miners. They identify a mining village in deepest Wales and set off in a mini bus to make their donation in person. And so begins the extraordinary story of two seemingly alien communities who form a surprising and ultimately triumphant partnership.

  • Needles And Opium

    4/09/15
    7:00 am - 9:00 pm
    Cutler Majestic Theatre

     ***FREE OFFERS FOR EMERSON COMMUNITY***

    Needles and Opium
    Performing April 9 -12

    Legendary Canadian artist Robert Lepage (The Andersen Project) returns with a reimagined version of his acclaimed Needles and Opium, a cinematic exploration of art, love and addiction. Still as relevant as when it premiered twenty years ago, Lepage concocts a story triggered by the art of poet/filmmaker Jean Cocteau and American jazz artist Miles Davis, coincidently crossing the Atlantic Ocean in 1949, visiting each other's cities. Through a hypnotic series of vignettes set in a cube suspended in midair, characters tumble from the boulevards of Paris to the back alleys of New York in this fascinating examination of how the echoes of history affect our daily struggles. With music, magic and Lepage's signature visual aesthetic, this noir-drenched examination of the soul turns heartbreak into art.

    In 1939, newly created British intelligence agency MI6 recruits Cambridge mathematics alumnus Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to crack Nazi codes, including Enigma -- which cryptanalysts had thought unbreakable.

Turing and team finally succeed and become heroes, but in 1952, the quiet genius encounters disgrace when authorities reveal he is gay and send him to prison.

    Legendary artist Robert Lepage is back with a new production of his acclaimed Needles and Opium. Presented as a hypnotic series of vignettes, this fascinating, introspective performance tracks the intersection and creative drive of Parisian poet/filmmaker Jean Cocteau on his way to New York, and American jazz legend Miles Davis during his stay in Paris in 1949. Startling technical wizardry serves true emotional depth on a journey into the night that puts us under a spell and leads us into the light - as much magic as it is theatre.

    Ulysses on Bottles
    Israeli Stage

    Performing April 9 – 25, 2015
    Directed by Guy Ben Ahron

    Winner of Israel Theater Prize's Best Original Play in 2012, Gilad Evron's poetic and poignant examination of lives in conflict receives its North American premiere from Boston's own Israeli Stage, featuring the acting talents of local favorites Jeremiah Kissel, Will Lyman and Karen MacDonald. With surprising humor and powerful insight, Ulysses on Bottles tells the story of two unlikely companions who meet in prison: an Israeli-Arab literature teacher nicknamed Ulysses and a successful Israeli-Jewish attorney who takes on his case pro bono. Combined, the perspectives of the two men illuminate the different reactions to Gaza. Evron wrestles with people living in separate realities where a life of privilege is pitted against one of deprivation, and the story of Ulysses raises profound questions about absolute morality and personal freedom.

We've also worked hard, and now it's time to celebrate a year of accomplishments. Come by for a delicious spread of food and a wonderful group of people. It's our last chance to get together before summer break.

  • Love's Labour's Won (Much Ado About Nothing)

    4/24/15
    7:00 pm - 9:45 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    APRIL 24-26th, 7pm

    Director: Christopher Luscombe

    Synopsis: Autumn 1918. A group of soldiers return from the trenches. The world-weary Benedick and his friend Claudio find themselves reacquainted with Beatrice and Hero. As memories of conflict give way to a life of parties and masked balls, Claudio and Hero fall madly, deeply in love, while Benedick and Beatrice reignite their own altogether more combative courtship.

    Shakespeare's comic romance plays out amidst the high spirits of a post-war house party, as youthful passions run riot, lovers are deceived and happiness is threatened – before peace ultimately wins the day.

    Christopher Luscombe directs the second of Shakespeare's matching pair of comedies that rejoice in our capacity to find love in the most unlikely places. Better known as Much Ado About Nothing, the play is performed under the title Love's Labour's Won, a name possibly given to it during Shakespeare's lifetime.

  • The Grand Parade

    4/30/15
    7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
    Paramount Center
    Tickets start at $25

    The Grand Parade (of the 20th Century) depicts major events of the 20th century in a theatrical style inspired by famed artist Marc Chagall's kaleidoscopic vision of humanity at play, at war and at rest. Trapeze, circus, dance, projections and popular culture fill the height and breadth of the stage in a spectacle of history populated by people and animals in acts of grace and destruction. History is recounted with a variety of iconic images from film, television and photography. It's a glorious work of memory, memorial and celebration that shows us to ourselves and makes us consider where we are now by examining where we have come from.
