The Little will screen Loro Chi? (Fabio Bonifacci, Francesco Miccichè, Italy 2015, 95 min.) as part of the Italian Film Series.

At 36, David has a one and only ambition: to win the respect of the president of the company he works for and, in the process, to get a better position with the substantial salary increase going with it. The time seems to have come as he is the author of a revolutionary invention that could help the firm to become more profitable. But before he has time to present the result of his research to his manager, he is accosted by a friendly-looking man who — he will realize too late — his nothing but a con artist. In a matter of a single night, his life is rocked…

The Scarlet Empress screening

Wednesday, May 24 @ 19:3021:14
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 Scarlet Empress (Josef von Sternberg, U.S. 1934, 104 min., 16mm) as part of the Period Dramas series.

Overlooked by both critics and audiences when Paramount released it in 1934, this breathtaking historical drama is now considered one of the most innovative productions of the sound era. It is certainly an audacious and baroque entry in the Marlene Dietrich—Josef von Sternberg series, a collaboration that still spellbinds moviegoers around the world. Ostensibly a biography of Catherine the Great, the film is also a witty exploration of sexuality and gender roles. Dietrich is exhilarating as the cynical empress in one of the most sumptuous films ever made.

Opening Reception, Social Reportage: The Sign Project

Thursday, May 25 @ 18:0021:00
St. Joseph's House of Hospitality,
402 South Ave.
Rochester, New York 14620 United States
+ Google Map

St. Joseph's House of Hospitality will host an Opening Reception for Social Reportage: The Sign Project, on display through June 30, featuring works by Norman Strothers, Kelly Mullaney, Tim Chaddock, Ed Stone, Kristy Bianchi, Julie Oldfield, and Arleen Thaler.

Session IV of the Social Reportage class at Flower City Arts Center found students immersed in the lives of those who call the streets home and those living in poverty that we might otherwise overlook. The Sign Project came about when a homeless man, Jon who lives in a tent in Rochester, New York, shared a link from rethinkhomeless.com with photojournalist, Arleen Thaler asking if she could do something like that here. Rethink Homelessness, a coalition located in Florida, asked their homeless friends to write down a fact about themselves that other people wouldn't know just by walking past them. The Sign Project is a result of a partnership that grew between Arleen's students and the men and women who shared a little piece of themselves with us. Using cardboard they dispelled some of the myths surrounding homelessness. Their answers may offer a glimpse you might otherwise be unaware of.

[Noo Phone in the Black Space]: or How to Avoid Roaming Charges (2017-May-25 @ 7 p.m.)

Thursday, May 25 @ 19:0021:00
Silo City,
120 Childs St.
Buffalo, New York 14203 United States
+ Google Map

Squeaky Wheel is proud to present an augmented reality performance by Buffalo based media artist Yvette Granata and San Jose based artist and performer Andrew Blanton. For two consecutive evenings the artists will install and perform in a visual, sonic performance that transforms the grand halls of Silo City through emerging technologies. Can augmented reality be used as the creation of new forms of collectivity? Or does it produce new forms of spatio-temporal apartheids? Through their respective approaches to performative augmentation and mobile media, Andrew Blanton and Yvette Granata's works inquire into the manner in which augmented reality and media performance can be framed as a critical dialogue between the alliances and the vacuoles of mobile realities. Interpreting augmented reality as performance space, their works are audiovisual performances and variations on collective and un-collective space. The works form a critical dialogue on augmented life, collecting performances of sound and image — an ambient group text message, a vertical disorientation through camera-apps, a hand-held sonic immersion, and a modulation of ambient feedback of the Silos.

War and Peace screening (2017-May-25 @ 7:30 p.m.)

Thursday, May 25 @ 19:3022:58
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 War and Peace (King Vidor, U.S. / Italy 1956, 208 min., 35mm) as part of the Period Dramas series.

This elegant Hollywood production was the first English-language version of Leo Tolstoy's Russian epic. The film, notably condensed from Tolstoy's tome, concerns two intertwined aristocratic Russian families during the era of Napoleon's ill-fated 1812 invasion, starring screen greats Henry Fonda as the intellectual Pierre Bezukhov and Audrey Hepburn as the eminent object of desire Natasha Rostova. Veteran director King Vidor's penultimate feature uses remarkably lavish footage of the Italian countryside as a substitute for the story's war-ravaged Russia.

Friday, May 26 @ 19:3021:07

The Dryden will screen Cosmos (Andrzej Żuławski, France / Portugal 2015, 97 min., DCP, French w/subtitles) as part of the Andrzej Żuławski series.

Żuławski's final film, a literary adaptation suffused with his trademark freneticism, transforms Polish writer Witold Gombrowicz's novel into an ominous and manic exploration of desire. Witold, who has just failed the bar, and his companion Fuchs, who has recently quit his fashion job, are staying at a guesthouse run by the intermittently paralytic Madame Woytis. Witold's reality mutates into a whirlwind of tension, histrionics, foreboding omens, and surrealistic logic as he becomes obsessed with Madame Woytis's daughter Lena, newly married to Lucien.
