Bright Lights: Cape Spin! An American Power Struggle with Filmmaker and Alum Robbie Gemmel
Nov2920127:00 pm - 9:00 pmParamount Center
Bright Family Screening Room
Sponsored by Department of Visual and Media Arts with alumni relations
Cape Spin! An American Power Struggle tells the surreal, fascinating, tragicomic story of the battle over America's most controversial clean energy project. Cape Wind would be the U.S.'s first offshore windfarm…But strange alliances formed for and against: Kennedys, Kochs, and everyday folks do battle with the developer and green groups over the future of American power.
With full access to both sides, a commitment to impartial storytelling and fueled by a satiric 'revolutionary' soundtrack, Cape Spin! is "a gripping and entertaining study of eco-capitalism and grassroots democracy". "It proves that environmental films can be crowd pleasers, and not at all just about the environment."
Q&A session with filmmaker and Emerson alumnus Robbie Gemmel will follow.

ArtsEmerson: The World on Stage presents The Pianist of Willesden Lane. Set in Vienna in 1938 and London during the Blitzkrieg, The Pianist of Willesden Lane tells the true story of Mona Golabek's mother, noted pianist and author Lisa Jura. A young Jewish pianist, Lisa dreams of a concert debut at the storied Musikverein concert hall. When Lisa is swept up in the kindertransport, to protect her from the Nazi regime, everything about her life is upended except her love of music and her pursuit of that dream. Golabek performs some of the world's most beloved piano music in this poignant tribute to her remarkable mother. Directed by Hershey Felder (who brought Leonard Bernstein and George Gershwin to life at ArtsEmerson last season), The Pianist of Willesden Lane is about hope, survival and how, through our darkest times, music has the power to help us survive.
