The MuCCC is hosting a performance of Sketching the Soul by Jacqueline Lynch.

Chelsea Logan is an artist struggling with the conflict between her growing celebrity and her Amish upbringing, which she left behind to pursue her ambition, and which she neglected to mention to Mike (her boyfriend), new friends and colleagues. The past and present, celebrity and spiritually come to a head one frenetic weekend when her younger sister Sarah arrives unexpectedly. Chelsea must explain her sister, and the lifestyle she kept a secret, to Mike, an attorney struggling with his own ethical priorities, and to Maureen Nash an aggressive journalist who arrives with a photographer for an interview (during which Chelsea, with a rather un-Amish-like attitude, pummels the photographer into surrendering the film he has shot of Sarah!) Sarah and Mike together help Chelsea to accept and acknowledge the power of her Amish heritage and to move toward a future she had not expected.

Un condamné à mort s'est échappé (A Man Escaped) screening

Thursday, March 23 @ 19:3021:09
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman Museum (formerly George Eastman House),
900 East Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

The Dryden will screen the emotionally tense thriller Un condamné à mort s'est échappé (A Man Escaped, Robert Bresson, France 1956, 99 min., 35mm, French w/subtitles) as part of the 12 Postcards from Prison series.

An unceasingly tense thriller, A Man Escaped draws upon French Resistance hero André Devigny's autobiographical book and Robert Bresson's own experiences as a Pow. Captured and sent to solitary confinement by the Nazis, French Resistance officer Fontaine slowly and methodically plans his escape, his every move marking the difference between life and death. A work of metaphysical suspense and resolute beauty, A Man Escaped is a genuinely moving encounter with limits and the will to transcend them.
