The Flick theatrical performance (2017-Mar-19 @ 2 p.m.)

Sunday, March 19 @ 14:0016:00
Jewish Community Center (JCC),
1200 Edgewood Ave.
Rochester, New York 14618 United States
+ Google Map

The JCC will host a performance of The Flick by Annie Baker in the CenterStage Theatre.

Three underpaid employees of a run-down movie theater tear tickets, clean up popcorn and attend to one of the few remaining 35 millimeter film projectors in usage. Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles and become more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on the screen. With keen insight and a finely tuned comic eye, The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending plea for authenticity in a fast-changing world. A must-see for movie lovers.

Sketching the Soul theatrical performance (2017-Mar-19 @ 2 p.m.)

Sunday, March 19 @ 14:0016:00
MuCCC (Multi-use Community Cultural Center),
142 Atlantic Ave.
Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

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.

A Revolution in Four Seasons screening

Sunday, March 19 @ 15:0016:27
Little Theatre,
240 East Ave. #100
Rochester, New York 14604 United States
+ Google Map

The Little will screen A Revolution in Four Seasons (Jessie Deeter, U.S. 2016, 87 min.) followed by a discussion with Ilka Datig, and Iman Abid as part of the Women's History Month Film Series 2017: Trailblazing Women series.

This seminal film tells the story of two women with opposing political views fighting for their different versions of a democratic future for Tunisia, the country that sparked the Arab Spring. Over the course of Tunisia's critical post-revolution years, we follow journalist Emna Ben Jemaa, who envisions a country governed by free speech and without the corruption of the former regime. In contrast, Jawhara Ettis of the Islamist party Ennahda works towards a Tunisia guided by Islamic principles. On a public level, both women must navigate how females are treated in their society, while in their own homes they must make difficult choices to balance their public political roles with marriage and motherhood. Both know the stakes are high. The ever-present threat of Islamic extremists means their fragile political process could break down and all they've worked for could be lost.

The Kid Brother screening (2017-Mar-20 @ 1:30 p.m.)

Monday, March 20 @ 13:3014:52
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 Kid Brother (Ted Wilde and J.A. Howe, U.S. 1926, 82 min., 16mm) as part of the Silent Tuesdays series.

"Harold Lloyd has clicked again with The Kid Brother, about as gaggy a gag picture as he has ever done. It is just a series of gags, one following the other, some funny and others funnier. Lloyd is somewhat different in the picture than he has been heretofore. In this case he is the youngest son of a family of three boys who live with their father, a widower. His opening scene shows him performing this last task with the aid of a butter churn, an ingenious mechanical arrangement for the wringing out and hanging of the clothes with the aid of a kite which carries the clothes aloft as they come from the wringer. When dad finds out that a medicine show has made a pitch and that the boy has given them a license, her orders the youngster to go down and close up the show. There are a couple of gags here that get over for howls, especially that of causing the amateur sheriff to disappear and his final hanging up against the back of the stage securely handcuffed. Jobyna Ralston plays opposite Lloyd as the little medicine show girl and handles herself perfectly. Walter James as the comedian's father acquits himself with honors." — Variety (1926)

Water Motor, Accumulation with Talking plus Water Motor, Shot Backstage screenings

Tuesday, March 21 @ 19:3020:19
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 Water Motor (Babette Mangolte, U.S. 1978, 7 min., 16mm), Accumulation with Talking plus Water Motor (Jonathan Demme, U.S. 1986, 11 min., digital), and Shot Backstage (Trisha Brown, 1998, 31 min., digital). On Water Motor:

"The image fades in. For two seconds Trisha Brown is there standing motionless, and she starts to dance her solo Water Motor, indeed moving as quickly as water. The movements are so fast and intricate that you feel you are missing half of it. When the dance is finished Trisha is standing motionless as in the beginning, but closer to the camera and the image fades to black. The images fades in again and Trisha doing the same dance, but this time in slow motion (shot at 48 fps) and the movement takes on a luscious quality that informs the viewer of what was missed before." — Babette Mangolte

On Accumulation with Talking plus Water Motor:

Trisha Brown's iconic solo Accumulation with Talking plus Watermotor, created in 1979, explores the virtuosity of multiple, competing tasks performed simultaneously. Filmed in Brown's studio in SoHo in 1986, Demme's film lets us watch Brown as she navigates the improvisatory structure of telling two stories and doing two dances at once, perfectly capturing her singular balance of quick wit and rigorous structure.

On Shot Backstage:

Literally shot backstage, Brown used an 8mm camera to film her company from the wings of the Teatro Principal in Valencia, Spain during a 1994 performance of For M.G.: The Movie. Brown's camera captures the dancers both onstage and in the wings, illustrating the usually unseen dimensions of the dance.

Merchants of Doubt screening

Rochester, New York 14618 United States
+ Google Map

The Brighton Memorial Library will screen Merchants of Doubt (Robert Kenner, U.S. 2014, 96 min.) in the Friends Learning Center followed by a discussion.

Inspired by the acclaimed book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, Merchants Of Doubt takes audiences on a satirically comedic, yet illuminating ride into the heart of conjuring American spin. Filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the curtain on a secretive group of highly charismatic, silver-tongued pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities—yet have the contrary aim of spreading maximum confusion about well-studied public threats ranging from toxic chemicals to pharmaceuticals to climate change.

Wednesday, March 22 @ 19:3021:30
Dryden Theatre at George Eastman Museum (formerly George Eastman House),

Rochester, New York 14607 United States
+ Google Map

The Dryden will screen The Flat (Arnon Goldfinger, Israel/Germany 2011, 97 min., DCP, Hebrew and German w/subtitles) as part of the Holocaust: Affect and Absence series.

At age 98, director Arnon Goldfinger's grandmother passed away, leaving him the task of clearing out the Tel Aviv flat that she and her husband shared for decades after immigrating from Nazi Germany in the 1930s. Sifting through a mountain of photos, letters, files, and objects, Goldfinger undertook the complex process of making sense of the accumulated ephemera of a lifetime. In so doing, he began to uncover clues pointing to a complicated and shocking story: a chronicle of the unexpected yet inevitable ethical ambiguities and repressed emotions that arise when everyday friendships suddenly cross enemy lines. In this award-winning, emotionally riveting documentary, Goldfinger follows the hints his grandparents left behind to investigate long-buried family secrets and unravel the mystery of their painful past. The result is a moving family portrait and an insightful look at the ways different generations deal with the memory of the Holocaust.
