  • 'Killer of Sheep' free, public screening in 35mm

    4/20/15
    6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Films from the Margin is delighted to announce our first ever 35mm screening: Killer of Sheep, the 1977 debut feature from the seminal African-American independent film director Charles Burnett.

    Discussion with post-colonial film scholar and filmmaker, Dr. Claire Andrade-Watkins to follow!

    Synopsis: Shot on location in the black Los Angeles ghetto of Watts in a series of weekends on a budget of less than $10,000, the film shows life through the eyes of Stan, a sensitive dreamer growing detached and numb from the psychic toll of work at the slaughterhouse. Frustrated by money problems, he finds respite in moments of simple beauty. With a lively soundtrack featuring songs by Etta James, Dinah Washington, Earth, Wind & Fire, and more, Killer of Sheep is filled with transcendent joy and gentle humor in the face of life that is sometimes hauntingly bleak.

    (USA, b/w, 80 min)

    This screening is free and open to the public so please extend the invite!

  • 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.

    4/30/15
    8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Paramount Center

     ***FREE OFFERS FOR EMERSON COMMUNITY***


    The Grand Parade (Of The 20th Century)
    Performing April 30th – May 3rd

    Created on a farm in Ashfield, Massachusetts, Double Edge Theatre's surreal, theatrical collage takes us along a 100-year historic journey of the mythology of our time in a style inspired by visual artist Marc Chagall. Through a kaleidoscopic vision of humanity, The Grand Parade (of the 20th Century) blends circus, puppetry, dance and projections, juxtaposing iconic images of historic moments with Chagall's vibrant paintings. From marked events including the moon landing, the skilled escapes of Houdini, the atomic bomb, the assassination of President Kennedy and the fall of the Berlin Wall, this work of memory and memorial celebrates where we are now by examining from where we have come.
