Dodsworth

Monday, April 20, 2015 @ 13:3015:11
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman House,
900 East Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

For today's Senior Matinee at 1:30 p.m., the Dryden will screen Dodsworth (William Wyler, U.S. 1936, 101 min., 35mm).

Dodsworth, one of the most intelligent films of the 1930s, is a study of a marriage in crisis. Produced by the legendary Samuel Goldwyn and directed by the great William Wyler, Dodsworth was one of eight films the two collaborated on over the next ten years. Based on the Sinclair Lewis novel, Sidney Howard adapted his Broadway play to the screen and Walter Huston reprised his role of Sam Dodsworth, which he had played more than three hundred times on the stage. The cast also included Ruth Chatterton as Fran Dodsworth, in one of the best roles of her career, Mary Astor, Paul Lukas, Maria Ouspenskaya, and David Niven in one of his first American films. The New York Times placed Dodsworth on their Ten Best Films list in 1936 and was one of the twenty highest grossing movies of the year.

Die Büchse der Pandora (Pandora's Box)

Tuesday, April 21, 2015 @ 20:0022:13
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman House,
900 East Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

Tonight at 8 p.m., the Dryden will screen Die Büchse der Pandora (Pandora's Box, Georg Wilhelm Pabst, Germany 1929, 133 min., 35mm) with live piano accompaniment by Philip C. Carli.

For James Card, there was only one Louise Brooks. The cineaste referred to his lifelong infatuation as an emotional devotion that had begun at the age of 14, calling Brooks an inadvertent femme fatale who could in no way be coquettish or even deliberately seductive—ideal for the role of Lulu in Pandora's Box, heroine of Frank Wedekind's beloved German plays. An innocently immoral sexual predator, Lulu discards and destroys men as she tries to get ahead, until she meets Jack the Ripper. The steamy story is a tangled web of intrigue and deception—the camera work, sets, and direction brilliantly economical, powerfully simple.

MAGIC Speaker Series with Molly Sauter discussing Where Is the Digital Street?

Rochester, New York 14623 United States

From 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. in Student Innovation Hall at RIT is a MAGIC Speaker Series with Molly Sauter discussing Where Is the Digital Street?

The internet is a vital arena of communication, self expression, and interpersonal organizing. When there is a message to convey, words to get out, or people to unify, many will turn to the internet as a theater for that activity. As familiar and widely accepted activist tools—petitions, fundraisers, mass letter-writing, call-in campaigns and others—find equivalent practices in the online space, is there also room for the tactics of disruption and civil disobedience that are equally familiar from the realm of street marches, occupations, and sit-ins? This talk explores the potential of the internet as a zone for disruptive activism and the laws and social forces chilling the development of innovative political activism online.

Team America: World Police

Wednesday, April 22, 2015 @ 20:0021:38
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman House,

Rochester, New York 14607 United States

Starting at 8 p.m., the Dryden will screen Team America: World Police (Trey Parker, U.S. 2004, 98 min., 35mm).

History lesson #6. This provocative, volatile political essay from the hearts and minds behind the popular South Park television series clearly shows that Hollywood was concocting devious plans to assassinate popular Asian leaders already a decade ago. Multitalented Trey Parker (as Kim Jong Il, Matt Damon, Tim Robbins, Sean Penn, Michael Moore, Helen Hunt, and Susan Sarandon) and Matt Stone (as George Clooney, Danny Glover, and Ethan Hawke) present us with a world on a brink of destruction that can only be prevented by an elite counterterrorism organization Team America: World Police. Partially based on true events.
