Occupation of the American Mind screening

Monday, September 25 @ 18:4520:10
Little Theatre,
240 East Ave. #100
Rochester, New York 14604 United States
+ Google Map

The Little will screen Occupation of the American Mind (Loretta Alper, Jeremy Earp, U.S. 2016, 85 min.) as part of the 2017 Witness Palestine Film Series.

Israel's ongoing military occupation of Palestinian territory and repeated invasions of the Gaza strip have triggered a fierce backlash against Israeli policies virtually everywhere in the world – except the United States. A CNN/ORC poll, conducted in July of 2014 showed that only four in 10 Americans believed that Israel was using too much force against the population of Gaza. The Occupation of the American Mind takes an eye-opening look at this critical exception, zeroing in on pro-Israel public relations efforts within the U.S. Narrated by Roger Waters and featuring leading observers of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and U.S. media culture, the film explores how the Israeli government, the U.S. government, and the pro-Israel lobby have joined forces, often with very different motives, to shape American media coverage of the conflict in Israel's favor. From the U.S.-based public relations campaigns that emerged in the 1980s to today, the film provides a sweeping analysis of Israel's decades-long battle for the hearts, minds, and tax dollars of the American people in the face of widening international condemnation of its increasingly right-wing policies.

The Little American screening

Tuesday, September 26 @ 19:3020:39
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 Little American (Cecil B. Demille, U.S. 1917, 69 min., 35mm) with live piano accompaniment by Philip C. Carli as part of the Silent Tuesdays, and WWI series.

America's entry into World War I on April 6, 1917, unleashed a torrent of Hollywood patriotism. Mary Pickford and Cecil B. DeMille were two of the first to turn their attention to the impact of the war. Both worked sold War Bonds to support America's troops, and their collaboration on The Little American (Pickford also served as producer) was a popular and artistic success. Love and rivalry, patriotic duty and sacrifice, heroism and betrayal—these are the themes DeMille and Pickford explore against the backdrop of the war's violence and cruelty. Jack Holt and Raymond Hatton vie for Pickford's affections as they meet on the battlefield of war.

Baby Gramps musical performance (2017-Sep-26 @ 8 p.m.)

Tuesday, September 26 @ 20:0022:00
Abilene Bar and Lounge,
153 Liberty Pole Way
Rochester, New York 14604 United States
+ Google Map

Writer Patrick Ferris said he has "a mass appeal in the sense that any audience between the age of 2 and 102 are captivated by his vaudeville antics, hilarious lyrics and animated guitar playing… His voice is a cross between Popeye the Sailor and a Didgeridoo and the plinkity-plink of his Very worn National steel guitar, sounds like a wind up jack in the box. If you listen closely and know anything about music, you'll realize Gramps is an absolutely incredible guitar player. Being a professional musician for over 40 years can't help but give you some sort of chops, but Gramps is a modern day Robert Johnson; a revolutionary guitarist that, like Thelonious Monk on piano, can play the notes 'between the cracks."
