Die Stadt ohne Juden (The City Without Jews) screening

Tuesday, September 25 @ 19:3020:50
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 Die Stadt ohne Juden (The City Without Jews, H. K. Breslauer, Austria 1924, 80 min., DCP) with live piano by Philip C. Carli as part of the Silent Tuesdays series.

Lost for more than ninety years, the original version of this title was found at a Parisian flea market in 2015. Meticulously restored by the Austrian Film Archive, and thanks to the largest crowdfunding campaign in Austria's history, the film can once again see the light of day. Based on the dystopian 1922 novel by Hugo Bettauer, the story contemplates a city that has identified its Jewish population as the root of its problems and expels them from its borders. Although the (non-Jewish) citizens are initially happy with this act, the city falters and the decision is reversed. Prophetic in its content and in its imagery, the film presaged nationalist anti-Semitism and made the argument that exclusion of a defined group of citizens weakens the community.

Rochester Street Films • Razed\Rise

Wednesday, September 26 @ 18:3020:30
Cinema Theatre,
957 S. Clinton Ave.
Rochester, New York 14620 United States
+ Google Map

Many urban neighborhoods throughout the U.S. were destroyed by the construction of new highways during the latter half of the twentieth century. In many cases, low income and minority neighborhoods were selected as locations for these new highways to pass through, with little consideration for the people who would have their homes destroyed and lives upended. We'll explore this and other dimensions of this historical era at our next Rochester Street Films event on September 26 at Cinema Theatre. The program will feature a mix of short films and clips about the battle to save Swillburg and other stories of neighborhoods wrecked and reclaimed. We'll also highlight current efforts to repair the damage done by Rochester's Inner Loop. The films will be followed by a live discussion with local leaders and experts.

Mature Mastery screening

Wednesday, September 26 @ 19:3020:44
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 Mature Mastery (Jiri Trnka, Czechoslovakia 1962—65, 74 min., DCP) as part of the Animation of Jiri Trnka series.

In the 1960s, at the height of his artistic output, Trnka turned to increasingly dark, surreal, satirical, and politically defiant subject matter. The result was a string of visually innovative, modernist masterpieces that encompass dystopian science fiction, religious parody, and, in his final crowning achievement, an impassioned protest against state censorship. This shorts program includes: Passion (1962), in which a boy's need for speed grows up along with him; Cybernetic Grandma (1962), a satire on automization; Archangel Gabriel and Mistress Goose (1964), a bawdy, medieval-set tale based on a story from The Decameron; and The Hand (1965), Trnka's final work about toiling under the restrictions of a totalitarian government.

Neko Case, Thao musical performances

Wednesday, September 26 @ 20:0022:00
Babeville,
341 Delaware Ave.
Buffalo, New York 14202 United States
+ Google Map

Babeville will host Neko Case with Thao (of the Get Down Stay Down) in Asbury Hall.

Five years have passed since Case's last solo project, The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You. In the interim, she sang on Whiteout Conditions, the 2017 release from longtime bandmates the New Pornographers. The year before that, she released a vinyl box set of her solo work and joined k.d. Lang and Laura Veirs on the case/lang/veirs project. Recording that record was a revelation, from Veirs' innovative guitar tunings to Lang's skills in studio. "I learned so much experiencing the work ethic of those two," Case says. She considers Lang "probably the most natural producer I've ever seen. Watching her work was awe-inspiring." After their national tour together, Case found similar transcendence in October 2016 sitting on a panel at the first-of-its-kind "Woman Producer" summit in Brooklyn, NY. Between discussions and performances from a diverse group of women who produce music from around the world, she wondered how it had taken such a long time to get to that moment, and why so many female pioneers had been forgotten. She set to work on her next record looking for not just new stories but also new sounds. This time, she wanted to put herself in a setting far away from everything she knew. She recalled Björn Yttling's skill with Lykke Li, Camera Obscura, and his own band, Peter Bjorn and John. "I've worked with the same people so long, I never had to step outside my comfort zone," Case says. "In this instance, I chose to." The record that came out of this reckoning with lost stories delivers both familiar Neko Case and something different. Death, extinction, exploitation, tides, animals, and adoration all blend recognizably. Case's trademark narrative gaps, just large enough for listeners to enter each song, likewise remain. A force of nature, an act of a mercurial, forgotten god, Hell-On is a record sealed by fire, filled with love and rage and dangers that might lay waste to everything at any moment. So if you wake up dazed in a smoking landscape, walking through the detritus of your own lost civilization with the smell of ash in your hair, your favorite sweater gone and a new song in your head, don't say you weren't warned.

Finché c'è Prosecco c'è speranza (The Last Prosecco) screening

Thursday, September 27 @ 19:0020:41
Little Theatre,
240 East Ave. #100
Rochester, New York 14604 United States
+ Google Map

The Little will screen Finché c'è Prosecco c'è speranza (The Last Prosecco, Antonio Padovan, Italy 2017, 101 min.) as part of the Italian Film Series.

The dashing, opinionated Count Ancillotto, as unstinting in his criticism of a nearby pollution-producing factory as he is proud of his family's heritage of making the finest Prosecco, kills himself with the flair and style that have marked his life. The motives for the suicide are mysterious, and the mystery deepens when a couple of the Count's best-known enemies are gunned down. Portly police inspector Stucky, a socially awkward outsider of half-Persian descent, is assigned to this baffling case in which the main suspect is a dead man. The trail leads Stucky to a sharpshooting Venetian prostitute, a crazed gravedigger, and an exclusive Prosecco brotherhood, but the real revelation for the policeman is the late Count's credo of savoring the finer things in life and fighting to preserve them.
