Sreypov, Phunam, and Messenger Band have stepped out of the dark past of their parents by expressing the resiliency of Cambodia through their art and advocacy. They are pioneers, and are part of a global movement of women who are changing and inspiring the world.

    Anything to Declare? 
    By Maurice Hennequin & Pierre Veber
    Directed by Benny Sato Ambush
    October 2-5, 2014
    Greene Theater / PPC

    Paris, 1912. The well-to-do Dupont family is thrilled that their naïve young daughter has wed a wealthy count – until they learn that the marriage has yet to be consummated (it's been more than a month!). Given mere days to provide his incensed mother-in-law with the promise of a titled grandson, the Count is desperate – in more ways than one! In classic farcical style, and accompanied by a colorful cast of characters, the clock ticks down, doors slam, identities are mistaken, and all hell breaks loose as the race to consummate the marriage catapults the action to….well, a climax!

    Power and Paradise in Walt Disney's World

    In this fascinating analysis, Cher Krause Knight peels back the actual and contextual layers of Walt Disney's inspiration and vision for Disney World in central Florida, exploring the reasons why the resort has emerged as such a prominent sociocultural force. Knight investigates every detail, from the scale and design of the buildings to the sidewalk infrastructure to which items could and could not be sold in the shops, discussing how each was carefully configured to shape the experience of every visitor. Expertly weaving themes of pilgrimage, paradise, fantasy, and urbanism, she delves into the unexpected nuances and contradictions of this elaborately conceived playland of the imagination.

    10/07/14
    7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Seating is on a first come basis with 100 seats (out of 174) held for the Emerson Community
    Discussion with producer Christine Vachon (see bio below) will follow led by VMA Professor Cristina Kotz Cornejo
    John Krokidas, 104 minutes, USA, 2013. Written by Kenneth Chisholm.

    In the early 1940s, Allen Ginsberg is an English major at Columbia University, only to learn more than he bargained for. Dissatisfied by the orthodox attitudes of the school, Allen finds himself drawn to iconoclastic colleagues like Lucien Carr, William S. Burroughs and Jack Kerouac. Together, this gang would explore bold new literary ideas that would challenge the sensibilities of their time as the future Beat Generation. However, for all their creativity, their very appetites and choices lead to more serious transgressions that would mark their lives forever. 

    Christine Vachon is an Independent Spirit Award and Gotham Award winner who co-founded indie powerhouse Killer Films with partner Pamela Koffler in 1995. Over the past decade and a half, the two have produced some of the most celebrated American indie features including Far From Heaven (nominated for four Academy Awards), Boys Don't Cry (Academy Award winner), One Hour Photo, Kids, Hedwing and the Angry Inch, Happiness, Velvet Goldmine, Safe, I Shot Andy Warhol, Camp, Swoon and I'm Not There (Academy Award nominated). In television, Vachon recently executive-produced the Emmy and Golden Globe winning miniseries Mildred Pierce for HBO.

    Recent work includes: Kill Your Darlings starring Daniel Radcliffe, directed by John Krokidas, Magic Magic starring Michael Cera, directed by Sebastian Silva; Still Alice directed by Wash Westmoreland and Richard Glatzer starring Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, and Kirsten Stewart and the upcoming Carol directed by Todd Haynes starring Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Kyle Chandler, and Sarah Paulson.

  • Special screening: "Coexist" with Director Adam Mazo and Solange (Rwanda Youth Healing Center)

    10/08/14
    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    When hate persists, how will you coexist? Coexist tells the emotional stories of women who survived the Rwandan genocide in 1994. They continue to cope with the loss of their families as the killers who created this trauma return from jail back to the villages where they once lived. Faced with these perpetrators on a daily basis, the victims must decide whether they can forgive them or not.

    10/09/14
    7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Discussion with VMA faculty Anya Belkina (animation) and Tom Cooper (ethics) will follow.

    Official Selection - Cannes Film Festival 2013

    More than two decades after catapulting to stardom with The Princess Bride, an aging actress (Robin Wright, playing a version of herself) decides to take her final job: preserving her digital likeness for a future Hollywood. Through a deal brokered by her loyal, longtime agent (Harvey Keitel) and the head of Miramount Studios (Danny Huston), her alias will be controlled by the studio, and will star in any film they want with no restrictions. In return, she receives healthy compensation so she can care for her ailing son and her digitized character will stay forever young. Twenty years later, under the creative vision of the studio's head animator (Jon Hamm), Wright's digital double rises to immortal stardom. With her contract expiring, she is invited to take part in "The Congress" convention as she makes her comeback straight into the world of future fantasy cinema.

    Directed by Ari Folman (Waltz With Bashir), the film also stars Kodi Smit-McPhee, Sami Gayle and Paul Giamatti.

    Welcome to Middletown, population – well, not big enough to be too big, nor small enough to be too small. Location: exactly between two other towns, both of which have long since faded away. Mary Swanson is new to the area, and eager to start a family and enjoy the neighborly bonds of Middletown life – but small-town social pleasantries don't always go as she expects. Often described a play that mixes the lyrical beauty of Our Town with the language of Samuel Beckett, Middletown is wry, acerbic, funny, profound, and heartbreaking: a meditation on birth, death, and the points between.

    Lecture with Ruth Feldstein

    Ruth Feldstein teaches History and American Studies at Rutgers University, Newark. In her research, writing, and teaching, she works to tell the stories of those whose voices have not been heard, and to make central those who are often at the margins of history. Her recent book is entitled How It Feels to Be Free: Black Women Entertainers and the Civil Rights Movement (OUP, 2013). The book explores the central roles that leading female stars of stage and screen -- Lena Horne, Nina Simone, Miriam Makeba, and Cicely Tyson, among others -- played in helping advance the goals of the freedom struggle. The book received the 2014 Benjamin Hooks National Book Award for Outstanding Scholarly Work on the American Civil Rights Movement and its Legacy. In addition to How It Feels to Be Free, Feldstein is the author of Motherhood in Black and White: Race and Sex in American Liberalism, 1930-1965, "'I Don't Trust You Anymore': Nina Simone, Culture, and Black Activism in the 1960s," which won the Letitia Woods Brown Memorial Prize and Best Article on Black Women's History in 2005, and other essays.

  • Sneak Preview: J Street- the Art of the Possible with directors

    10/22/14
    7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Discussion with co-directors Ken Winikur and Ben Avishai to follow the screening.

    J Street is on the frontlines of the world's most "intractable" problem. An upstart lobby group in Washington, D.C., J Street dares to assert what to many seems obvious: that a two-state solution is Israel's only future, and any peace deal will require robust American participation. It sees itself playing David to AIPAC, the Israel Lobby's Goliath, and, less than five years old, has been making surprising gains.

    With full access to the inside workings of a lobby group struggling to represent the center ground of Jewish American thought, this documentary tracks J Street as it attempts to change what it means to be pro-Israel in America. We see their missteps and their triumphs as they push the Obama administration to take an active role in negotiating a two-state solution, fend off accusations of harboring 'anti-Israel' objectives and gain influence among America's Jewish population.

    In this urgent political story told with the intimacy of cinema vérité, we feel the pulse of an organization, taking viewers to high-level strategy meetings, and long nights on the road. It is here that our characters come to life and the J Street story unfolds. J Street: The Art of the Possible is at once a gripping story about the desperate need for a two-state solution, and a captivating glimpse at the role of Lobbyists in the American political process.

    Emerson is delighted to participate in the Boston Book Festival's annual One City One Story project by hosting a discussion of this year's short story, "Sublimation," by Jennifer Haigh.

    "Sublimation" is described as "a story that explores the intergenerational dynamics in one family as they tackle topics of gender nonconformity, emotional connection, and the existential crises that accompany aging." It was first published in Ploughshares, and Ploughshares Director and Editor-in-Chief, Ladette Randolph--who also serves on the selection committee for One City One Story--will serve as one of our panelists for this event.

    Pick up a free copy of the story at Iwasaki Library or any branch of the Boston Public Library or download it from the One City One Story site. Come join us for a lively discussion on October 23 and then head over to the Boston-wide Town Hall discussion with author Jennifer Haigh on Saturday, October 25!

    Note to writers: One City One Story is sponsoring a Writing Contest in conjunction with this year's activities. From their website: "Write a short story (500-700 words) about coming to terms with an aspect of your own identity, be it growing up, growing older, or accepting yourself despite others' lack of acceptance. Submit your stories to info@bostonbookfest.org by October 10, 2014. The winning story will receive a bag of BBF 2014 memorabilia, including a signed copy of "Sublimation"!"

  • George Clinton Book Interview

    10/25/14
    2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
    First Parish Church
    One Church Street
    Cambridge, MA 02138
    United States of America
    $5

    Emerson assistant professor of journalism Tim Riley interviews George Clinton about his new memoir. in a public forum at Harvard Square's First Parish Church, sponsored by Porter Square Books. $5 tickets are required.

    Affectionately known as the "Goduncle" of funk, just a rung beneath James Brown's godfather, George Clinton's career as a black rock innovator spans the past fifty years with three number 1 singles and three platinum albums.

    Clinton's work mirrors the story of black pop from doo-wop through Motown pop and soul to dance music, and gained iconoclastic stature through extended guitar solos, cartoonish concept albums, and exuberant stage shows with outlandish costumes. Most of his work revolves around two distinct groups, Parliament and Funkadelic, who appeared as the P-Funk All-Stars after 1981. Well-known albums include Free Your Mind And Your Ass Will Follow, and The Clones of Dr. Funkenstein.

    Key role models for Clinton include Sly Stone and Jimi Hendrix, but he presided over his many casts of musicians as a mentor and svengali, spawning solo careers for bassist Bootsy Collins and keyboardist Bernie Worrell. His work can be palpably felt in the music of Prince, and rappers have sampled his recordings almost as much as James Brown's. He was inducted into the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.

    His new memoir, Brothas Be, Yo Like George, Ain't That Funkin' Kinda Hard on You? recounts his zig-zag career with New Yorker writer Ben Greenman.

  • Screening of Kisses to the Children

    10/28/14
    7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Discussion with the director and special guests will follow.

    Five Greek-Jewish children who were saved by Christian families during the German Occupation, five "Hidden Children" who lived in total silence, tell their stories. Stories of terror, anguish and confusion but also stories of salvation and carefree childhood into the arms of strangers. Secret Gardens of Eden, nests of love away from the horror of the Holocaust. Five children were forced to mature abruptly. Rosina, Iossif, Eftyhia, Shelly and Marios grew old, carrying the memory of those children who were never given time to grow up.
