12:00 PM

Wolfson Campus

Livres d’Artiste d’Aujourd’hui
November 17, 2014 - March 20, 2015

Centre Gallery

The exhibition has been organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director of the Center for Book Arts, and Maddy Rosenberg.

What is a livre d’artiste? It was traditionally put together by a publisher asking and artist and writer (who often didn’t know each other) to create work for a publication.  The collaboration was usually an arranged one and the production value was usually of high quality produced in a limited run.

For this exhibition however, the curators are interested to see how artists, writers, performers have found ways to self-produce publications, augmenting the collaborative spirit embedded in the livre d’ artiste concept.

The exhibition will present work of a true collaboration, not one artists responding to a finished work, but instead one in which both contributors have equal weight.

Collaborations being featured include: Rosaire Appel & Myrna Burks; Samanta Batra-Mehta & Sweta Srivastava Vikram; Rosemarie Chiarlone, Susan Weiner, Elaine Wright & Alfredo Useche; Beatrice Coron & Elizabeth DeSole; Martin Demaine, Erik Demaine & Michael Benson; Rolando Estevez-Jordan & Ruth Behar; Anne Gilman & David Unger; Ximena Perez-Grobet  & AJO ( Maria Jose de la Huz); Roni Gross, Peter Schell & Nancy Campbell; Mary Heebner; John Blackwell, Tomio Munen, Tessa Tapscott & David Shelton; Wennie Huang & Ed Go; Despo Magoni & over 30 various collaborators; Iviva Olenick, Luke Hoorelbeke & Community Members; Robin Price & Joyce Cutler-Shaw; Felicia Rice, Monica Brown & Jenny Callanaupa Huarhua; Miriam Schaer & Mary Florio; Martin Boykan; Robbin Ami Silverberg & Andras Des; Sarah Stengle & Michael Joseph; and Ewa Zebroswski & Anne Michaels.

“Nothing short of fascinating.” -Jordan Hoffman, Film.com | full review

Foxcatcher is a radical departure from Mr. Miller’s previous feature, the smart and entertaining Moneyball. It isn’t meant as conventional entertainment, but it’s fascinating to watch from start to finish.” -Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal | full review

Foxcatcher exerts a mesmerizing pull, not only because it affords the chance to witness three fine actors working at the height of their powers, but also because it so steadfastly resists the urge to clutter up empty space with the filigree of gratuitous imagery and chatter.” -Ann Hornaday, Washington Post | full review

“With Foxcatcher, [Miller] has outdone himself, turning his uniquely meticulous eye to a tiny story in a totally rarefied, specific environment and through whatever alchemy he has perfected, created something so universal and resonant that it feels epic, sprawling, almost ancient in its mythic overtones. Foxcatcher is an enormous film.” -Jessica Kiang, The Playlist | full review

“If you can appreciate the sight of two totally dialed-in performers simmering until they boil over, that's enough. And P.S., that's pretty much the definition of jazz.” -Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly | full review

“Whiplash is true to its title. It throws you around with impunity, yet Chazelle exerts tight, exacting control over his increasingly feverish and often weirdly comic melodrama.” -Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune | full review

“Chazelle proves an exceptional builder of scenes, crafting loaded, need-to-succeed moments that grab our attention and hold it tight.” -Peter Debruge, Variety | full review

“Beat the drums for a Simmons Oscar, and add a cymbal crash for Whiplash. It's electrifying.” -Peter Travers, Rolling Stone | full review

“Sum up the plot and it sounds interminable. Watch the film and it will spit you out elated, exhausted and cheering for an encore.” -Olly Richard, Empire | full review

“Whiplash is, at its core, about jazz -- that smoothest, mellowest of American art forms. But don't let that fool you. Writer-director Damien Chazelle's impressive sophomore effort is about as rock 'n' roll as a movie about jazz can possibly be.” -Mike Scott, New Orleans Times-Picayune | full review

“It is one of those scorching films that burns through emotions, uses up actors, wring out audiences. And the jazz, well, it has its own moments of brutal, breathtaking fusion.” -Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times | full review

“With Foxcatcher, [Miller] has outdone himself, turning his uniquely meticulous eye to a tiny story in a totally rarefied, specific environment and through whatever alchemy he has perfected, created something so universal and resonant that it feels epic, sprawling, almost ancient in its mythic overtones. Foxcatcher is an enormous film.” -Jessica Kiang, The Playlist | full review

Livres d’Artiste d’Aujourd’hui
November 17, 2014 - March 20, 2015

Centre Gallery

The exhibition has been organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director of the Center for Book Arts, and Maddy Rosenberg.

What is a livre d’artiste? It was traditionally put together by a publisher asking and artist and writer (who often didn’t know each other) to create work for a publication.  The collaboration was usually an arranged one and the production value was usually of high quality produced in a limited run.

For this exhibition however, the curators are interested to see how artists, writers, performers have found ways to self-produce publications, augmenting the collaborative spirit embedded in the livre d’ artiste concept.

The exhibition will present work of a true collaboration, not one artists responding to a finished work, but instead one in which both contributors have equal weight.

Collaborations being featured include: Rosaire Appel & Myrna Burks; Samanta Batra-Mehta & Sweta Srivastava Vikram; Rosemarie Chiarlone, Susan Weiner, Elaine Wright & Alfredo Useche; Beatrice Coron & Elizabeth DeSole; Martin Demaine, Erik Demaine & Michael Benson; Rolando Estevez-Jordan & Ruth Behar; Anne Gilman & David Unger; Ximena Perez-Grobet  & AJO ( Maria Jose de la Huz); Roni Gross, Peter Schell & Nancy Campbell; Mary Heebner; John Blackwell, Tomio Munen, Tessa Tapscott & David Shelton; Wennie Huang & Ed Go; Despo Magoni & over 30 various collaborators; Iviva Olenick, Luke Hoorelbeke & Community Members; Robin Price & Joyce Cutler-Shaw; Felicia Rice, Monica Brown & Jenny Callanaupa Huarhua; Miriam Schaer & Mary Florio; Martin Boykan; Robbin Ami Silverberg & Andras Des; Sarah Stengle & Michael Joseph; and Ewa Zebroswski & Anne Michaels.

“Nothing short of fascinating.” -Jordan Hoffman, Film.com | full review

Foxcatcher is a radical departure from Mr. Miller’s previous feature, the smart and entertaining Moneyball. It isn’t meant as conventional entertainment, but it’s fascinating to watch from start to finish.” -Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal | full review

Foxcatcher exerts a mesmerizing pull, not only because it affords the chance to witness three fine actors working at the height of their powers, but also because it so steadfastly resists the urge to clutter up empty space with the filigree of gratuitous imagery and chatter.” -Ann Hornaday, Washington Post | full review

“With Foxcatcher, [Miller] has outdone himself, turning his uniquely meticulous eye to a tiny story in a totally rarefied, specific environment and through whatever alchemy he has perfected, created something so universal and resonant that it feels epic, sprawling, almost ancient in its mythic overtones. Foxcatcher is an enormous film.” -Jessica Kiang, The Playlist | full review

The exhibition has been organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director of the Center for Book Arts, and Maddy Rosenberg.

What is a livre d’artiste? It was traditionally put together by a publisher asking and artist and writer (who often didn’t know each other) to create work for a publication.  The collaboration was usually an arranged one and the production value was usually of high quality produced in a limited run.

For this exhibition however, the curators are interested to see how artists, writers, performers have found ways to self-produce publications, augmenting the collaborative spirit embedded in the livre d’ artiste concept.

The exhibition will present work of a true collaboration, not one artists responding to a finished work, but instead one in which both contributors have equal weight.

Collaborations being featured include: Rosaire Appel & Myrna Burks; Samanta Batra-Mehta & Sweta Srivastava Vikram; Rosemarie Chiarlone, Susan Weiner, Elaine Wright & Alfredo Useche; Beatrice Coron & Elizabeth DeSole; Martin Demaine, Erik Demaine & Michael Benson; Rolando Estevez-Jordan & Ruth Behar; Anne Gilman & David Unger; Ximena Perez-Grobet  & AJO ( Maria Jose de la Huz); Roni Gross, Peter Schell & Nancy Campbell; Mary Heebner; John Blackwell, Tomio Munen, Tessa Tapscott & David Shelton; Wennie Huang & Ed Go; Despo Magoni & over 30 various collaborators; Iviva Olenick, Luke Hoorelbeke & Community Members; Robin Price & Joyce Cutler-Shaw; Felicia Rice, Monica Brown & Jenny Callanaupa Huarhua; Miriam Schaer & Mary Florio; Martin Boykan; Robbin Ami Silverberg & Andras Des; Sarah Stengle & Michael Joseph; and Ewa Zebroswski & Anne Michaels.

Schultz seizes the opportunity, eager to step out of the shadow of his revered older brother Dave (Mark Ruffalo), a prominent wrestling coach and Gold Medal winner himself. With his vast financial resources and state-of-the-art training facility at Foxcatcher Farm, du Pont appoints himself head coach of the team, eager to win the respect of his peers and the approval of his condemning mother (Vanessa Redgrave).

“Carell, in a rare but not unique departure into drama, proves himself as accomplished at tragedy as he is at comedy.” -John Bleasdale, CineVue | full review

“The hypnotic and haunting Foxcatcher can prove its worth as one of the year's very best films. Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo give the performances of their lives.” -Peter Travers, Rolling Stone | full review 

“Nothing short of fascinating.” -Jordan Hoffman, Film.com | full review

Foxcatcher is a radical departure from Mr. Miller’s previous feature, the smart and entertaining Moneyball. It isn’t meant as conventional entertainment, but it’s fascinating to watch from start to finish.” -Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal | full review

Foxcatcher exerts a mesmerizing pull, not only because it affords the chance to witness three fine actors working at the height of their powers, but also because it so steadfastly resists the urge to clutter up empty space with the filigree of gratuitous imagery and chatter.” -Ann Hornaday, Washington Post | full review

“With Foxcatcher, [Miller] has outdone himself, turning his uniquely meticulous eye to a tiny story in a totally rarefied, specific environment and through whatever alchemy he has perfected, created something so universal and resonant that it feels epic, sprawling, almost ancient in its mythic overtones. Foxcatcher is an enormous film.” -Jessica Kiang, The Playlist | full review

Andrew Neyman is a 19-year-old drummer dreaming of greatness but unsure if his dream will ever come true. He attends a cut-throat music conservatory and practices at all hours of the day, but he’s haunted by the failed writing career of his father and wonders if he has what it takes to leave a mark. Then he meets Terence Fletcher, a larger-than-life music instructor with a very particular teaching style. Under Fletcher’s ruthless direction, Andrew begins to pursue perfection at any cost – even his humanity.

“If you can appreciate the sight of two totally dialed-in performers simmering until they boil over, that's enough. And P.S., that's pretty much the definition of jazz.” -Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly | full review

“Whiplash is true to its title. It throws you around with impunity, yet Chazelle exerts tight, exacting control over his increasingly feverish and often weirdly comic melodrama.” -Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune | full review

“Chazelle proves an exceptional builder of scenes, crafting loaded, need-to-succeed moments that grab our attention and hold it tight.” -Peter Debruge, Variety | full review

“Beat the drums for a Simmons Oscar, and add a cymbal crash for Whiplash. It's electrifying.” -Peter Travers, Rolling Stone | full review

“Sum up the plot and it sounds interminable. Watch the film and it will spit you out elated, exhausted and cheering for an encore.” -Olly Richard, Empire | full review

“Whiplash is, at its core, about jazz -- that smoothest, mellowest of American art forms. But don't let that fool you. Writer-director Damien Chazelle's impressive sophomore effort is about as rock 'n' roll as a movie about jazz can possibly be.” -Mike Scott, New Orleans Times-Picayune | full review

“It is one of those scorching films that burns through emotions, uses up actors, wring out audiences. And the jazz, well, it has its own moments of brutal, breathtaking fusion.” -Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times | full review

“The exhilarating, inventive and suspenseful story hinges on a pair of commanding performances.” -Claudia Puig, USA Today | full review

November 17, 2014 - March 20, 2015

Centre Gallery

The exhibition has been organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director of the Center for Book Arts, and Maddy Rosenberg.

What is a livre d’artiste? It was traditionally put together by a publisher asking and artist and writer (who often didn’t know each other) to create work for a publication.  The collaboration was usually an arranged one and the production value was usually of high quality produced in a limited run.

For this exhibition however, the curators are interested to see how artists, writers, performers have found ways to self-produce publications, augmenting the collaborative spirit embedded in the livre d’ artiste concept.

The exhibition will present work of a true collaboration, not one artists responding to a finished work, but instead one in which both contributors have equal weight.

Collaborations being featured include: Rosaire Appel & Myrna Burks; Samanta Batra-Mehta & Sweta Srivastava Vikram; Rosemarie Chiarlone, Susan Weiner, Elaine Wright & Alfredo Useche; Beatrice Coron & Elizabeth DeSole; Martin Demaine, Erik Demaine & Michael Benson; Rolando Estevez-Jordan & Ruth Behar; Anne Gilman & David Unger; Ximena Perez-Grobet  & AJO ( Maria Jose de la Huz); Roni Gross, Peter Schell & Nancy Campbell; Mary Heebner; John Blackwell, Tomio Munen, Tessa Tapscott & David Shelton; Wennie Huang & Ed Go; Despo Magoni & over 30 various collaborators; Iviva Olenick, Luke Hoorelbeke & Community Members; Robin Price & Joyce Cutler-Shaw; Felicia Rice, Monica Brown & Jenny Callanaupa Huarhua; Miriam Schaer & Mary Florio; Martin Boykan; Robbin Ami Silverberg & Andras Des; Sarah Stengle & Michael Joseph; and Ewa Zebroswski & Anne Michaels.

Livres d’Artiste d’Aujourd’hui
November 17, 2014 - March 20, 2015

Centre Gallery

The exhibition has been organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director of the Center for Book Arts, and Maddy Rosenberg.

What is a livre d’artiste? It was traditionally put together by a publisher asking and artist and writer (who often didn’t know each other) to create work for a publication.  The collaboration was usually an arranged one and the production value was usually of high quality produced in a limited run.

For this exhibition however, the curators are interested to see how artists, writers, performers have found ways to self-produce publications, augmenting the collaborative spirit embedded in the livre d’ artiste concept.

The exhibition will present work of a true collaboration, not one artists responding to a finished work, but instead one in which both contributors have equal weight.

Collaborations being featured include: Rosaire Appel & Myrna Burks; Samanta Batra-Mehta & Sweta Srivastava Vikram; Rosemarie Chiarlone, Susan Weiner, Elaine Wright & Alfredo Useche; Beatrice Coron & Elizabeth DeSole; Martin Demaine, Erik Demaine & Michael Benson; Rolando Estevez-Jordan & Ruth Behar; Anne Gilman & David Unger; Ximena Perez-Grobet  & AJO ( Maria Jose de la Huz); Roni Gross, Peter Schell & Nancy Campbell; Mary Heebner; John Blackwell, Tomio Munen, Tessa Tapscott & David Shelton; Wennie Huang & Ed Go; Despo Magoni & over 30 various collaborators; Iviva Olenick, Luke Hoorelbeke & Community Members; Robin Price & Joyce Cutler-Shaw; Felicia Rice, Monica Brown & Jenny Callanaupa Huarhua; Miriam Schaer & Mary Florio; Martin Boykan; Robbin Ami Silverberg & Andras Des; Sarah Stengle & Michael Joseph; and Ewa Zebroswski & Anne Michaels.

MR. KAPLAN

A film by Álvaro Brechner
Cast: Héctor Noguera, Néstor Guzzini, Rolf Becker, Nidia Telles, Nuria Fló, Leonor Svarcas, Gustavo Saffores, Hugo Piccinini

Uruguay | 2014 | 98 min. | Comedy, Drama | Not Rated
Spanish with English subtitles


Jacob Kaplan (Héctor Noguera) lives an ordinary life in Uruguay. Like many of his other Jewish friends, Jacob fled Europe for South American during World War II. But now turning 76, he's become grumpy and fed up with his community and his family's lack of interest in its own heritage. After fleeing Europe for Uruguay during WWII, Jacob Kaplan built a quiet life. Now 76, he begins to question his worth. After learning of a mysterious German prowling the shores of a nearby beach, he becomes convinced that he's found a Nazi in hiding and plans to expose him. Expertly distilling a potent mixture of emotional depth and deadpan comedy, Mr. Kaplan is a vivacious meditation on family, aging, and the drive for significance.

"Eminently likeable, this highly amusing crowd-pleaser represents Uruguay’s best shot ever at the Best Foreign Language Oscar." -Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter | full review

Mr. Kaplan feels Alexander Payne-esque with its quirky but grounded sense of humor and a human substance to a slick cinematic style. That’s the balancing act that the film achieves that makes it a cut above the rest.” -Jack Moulton, Awards Circuit | full review

“Shot in Uruguay, this film is a wonderful explosion of color and sunshine. From the white sandy beaches to the contemporary city apartment it shows the country at its best” -Amanda Farley, Loose-Lips | full review

Mr. Kaplan, Uruguay's submission to the Academy for Best Foreign Language Film, is immediately beautiful. I was struck not even five minutes in by humor, color, light, composition, and music implementation technically reminiscent of Wes Anderson and Michel Gondry” -Lucy Doughty, Reel GA | full review

MR. TURNER (WITH SPANISH SUBTITLES)

A film by Mike Leigh
Cast: Timothy Spall, Dorothy Atkinson, Marion Bailey, Paul Jesson, Lesley Manville, Martin Savage

United Kingdom | 2014 | 150 min. | Biography, Drama, History | Rated R
English with Spanish Subtitles

Mr. Turner explores the last quarter century of the life of J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851), the single-minded artist who worked hard and travelled extensively. Turner is profoundly affected by the death of his ex-barber father, he takes up with a widow, Mrs. Booth, a seaside landlady, and is plagued occasionally by an ex-lover, Sarah Danby, by whom he has two illegitimate adult daughters, whose existence he invariably denies. He enjoys the hospitality of the landed aristocracy, he visits a brothel, he is fascinated by science, photography and railways, he is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, and he has himself tied to the mast of a ship in bad weather in order to paint a snowstorm. He is celebrated by some, and reviled by others. He refuses an offer of £100,000 from a millionaire who wants to buy all his work, preferring to bequeath it to the British nation, whereas Queen Victoria loathes his work. Throughout the story he is loved by his stoical housekeeper, Hannah, whom he takes for granted and whom he occasionally exploits sexually. Eventually, he leads a double existence, living incognito with Mrs. Booth in Chelsea, where he dies. Hannah is unaware of this until the very end.

“Mr. Turner is no barrel of laughs. It's a barrel of life - an extraordinary one.” -Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer | full review

Mr. Turner does resemble Topsy-Turvy in its meticulous yet vibrant recreation of the past and its ever-expanding thematic amplitude. This is a movie not only about one particular artist, but about art as both a field of human endeavor and an object of shifting cultural and economic value.” -Dana Stevens, Slate | full review

“What a glorious film this is, richly and immediately enjoyable, hitting its satisfying stride straight away. It's funny and visually immaculate; it combines domestic intimacy with an epic sweep and has a lyrical, mysterious quality that perfumes every scene, whether tragic or comic.” -Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian | full review

“Leigh’s generous approach to capturing the fullness of Turner’s life, through unhurried rhythms and scenes, makes Mr. Turner memorable.” -Keith Phipps, The Dissolve | full review

“Leigh embraces the contradictions in Turner. And in tandem with cinematographer Dick Pope, a master of light, he shows us the world as Turner sees it. The effect is harsh and ravishing. Leigh's beauty of a movie touches the heart not by sentimental gush but by the amplitude of its art.” -Peter Travers, Rolling Stone | full review 

Mr. Turner is no barrel of laughs. It's a barrel of life - an extraordinary one.” -Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer | full review

“J.M.W. Turner was a master of light and image, but what stands out most about him in Mike Leigh's captivating biographical film is a sound. Playing the renowned Victorian-era English painter, Timothy Spall grunts and expectorates his way through his scenes, chugging along with the phlegmy belch of an old jalopy or, as the film suggests more than once, a snuffling pig.” -Keith Staskiewicz, Entertainment Weekly | full review 

“Leigh has made another highly personal study of art, commerce and the glacial progress of establishment tastes, built around a lead performance from longtime Leigh collaborator Timothy Spall that’s as majestic as one of Turner’s own swirling sunsets.” -Scott Foundas, Variety | full review

“J.M.W. Turner was a master of light and image, but what stands out most about him in Mike Leigh's captivating biographical film is a sound. Playing the renowned Victorian-era English painter, Timothy Spall grunts and expectorates his way through his scenes, chugging along with the phlegmy belch of an old jalopy or, as the film suggests more than once, a snuffling pig.” -Keith Staskiewicz, Entertainment Weekly | full review 

“Leigh has made another highly personal study of art, commerce and the glacial progress of establishment tastes, built around a lead performance from longtime Leigh collaborator Timothy Spall that’s as majestic as one of Turner’s own swirling sunsets.” -Scott Foundas, Variety | full review

MR. KAPLAN

A film by Álvaro Brechner
Cast: Héctor Noguera, Néstor Guzzini, Rolf Becker, Nidia Telles, Nuria Fló, Leonor Svarcas, Gustavo Saffores, Hugo Piccinini

Uruguay | 2014 | 98 min. | Comedy, Drama | Not Rated
Spanish with English subtitles


Jacob Kaplan (Héctor Noguera) lives an ordinary life in Uruguay. Like many of his other Jewish friends, Jacob fled Europe for South American during World War II. But now turning 76, he's become grumpy and fed up with his community and his family's lack of interest in its own heritage. After fleeing Europe for Uruguay during WWII, Jacob Kaplan built a quiet life. Now 76, he begins to question his worth. After learning of a mysterious German prowling the shores of a nearby beach, he becomes convinced that he's found a Nazi in hiding and plans to expose him. Expertly distilling a potent mixture of emotional depth and deadpan comedy, Mr. Kaplan is a vivacious meditation on family, aging, and the drive for significance.

"Eminently likeable, this highly amusing crowd-pleaser represents Uruguay’s best shot ever at the Best Foreign Language Oscar." -Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter | full review

Mr. Kaplan feels Alexander Payne-esque with its quirky but grounded sense of humor and a human substance to a slick cinematic style. That’s the balancing act that the film achieves that makes it a cut above the rest.” -Jack Moulton, Awards Circuit | full review

“Shot in Uruguay, this film is a wonderful explosion of color and sunshine. From the white sandy beaches to the contemporary city apartment it shows the country at its best” -Amanda Farley, Loose-Lips | full review

Mr. Kaplan, Uruguay's submission to the Academy for Best Foreign Language Film, is immediately beautiful. I was struck not even five minutes in by humor, color, light, composition, and music implementation technically reminiscent of Wes Anderson and Michel Gondry” -Lucy Doughty, Reel GA | full review

MR. TURNER (WITH SPANISH SUBTITLES)

A film by Mike Leigh
Cast: Timothy Spall, Dorothy Atkinson, Marion Bailey, Paul Jesson, Lesley Manville, Martin Savage

United Kingdom | 2014 | 150 min. | Biography, Drama, History | Rated R
English with Spanish Subtitles

Mr. Turner explores the last quarter century of the life of J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851), the single-minded artist who worked hard and travelled extensively. Turner is profoundly affected by the death of his ex-barber father, he takes up with a widow, Mrs. Booth, a seaside landlady, and is plagued occasionally by an ex-lover, Sarah Danby, by whom he has two illegitimate adult daughters, whose existence he invariably denies. He enjoys the hospitality of the landed aristocracy, he visits a brothel, he is fascinated by science, photography and railways, he is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, and he has himself tied to the mast of a ship in bad weather in order to paint a snowstorm. He is celebrated by some, and reviled by others. He refuses an offer of £100,000 from a millionaire who wants to buy all his work, preferring to bequeath it to the British nation, whereas Queen Victoria loathes his work. Throughout the story he is loved by his stoical housekeeper, Hannah, whom he takes for granted and whom he occasionally exploits sexually. Eventually, he leads a double existence, living incognito with Mrs. Booth in Chelsea, where he dies. Hannah is unaware of this until the very end.

“Mr. Turner is no barrel of laughs. It's a barrel of life - an extraordinary one.” -Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer | full review

It's funny and visually immaculate; it combines domestic intimacy with an epic sweep and has a lyrical, mysterious quality that perfumes every scene, whether tragic or comic.” -Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian | full review

MR. KAPLAN

A film by Álvaro Brechner
Cast: Héctor Noguera, Néstor Guzzini, Rolf Becker, Nidia Telles, Nuria Fló, Leonor Svarcas, Gustavo Saffores, Hugo Piccinini

Uruguay | 2014 | 98 min. | Comedy, Drama | Not Rated
Spanish with English subtitles


Jacob Kaplan (Héctor Noguera) lives an ordinary life in Uruguay. Like many of his other Jewish friends, Jacob fled Europe for South American during World War II. But now turning 76, he's become grumpy and fed up with his community and his family's lack of interest in its own heritage. After fleeing Europe for Uruguay during WWII, Jacob Kaplan built a quiet life. Now 76, he begins to question his worth. After learning of a mysterious German prowling the shores of a nearby beach, he becomes convinced that he's found a Nazi in hiding and plans to expose him. Expertly distilling a potent mixture of emotional depth and deadpan comedy, Mr. Kaplan is a vivacious meditation on family, aging, and the drive for significance.

MR. TURNER (WITH SPANISH SUBTITLES)

A film by Mike Leigh
Cast: Timothy Spall, Dorothy Atkinson, Marion Bailey, Paul Jesson, Lesley Manville, Martin Savage

United Kingdom | 2014 | 150 min. | Biography, Drama, History | Rated R
English with Spanish Subtitles

Mr. Turner explores the last quarter century of the life of J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851), the single-minded artist who worked hard and travelled extensively. Turner is profoundly affected by the death of his ex-barber father, he takes up with a widow, Mrs. Booth, a seaside landlady, and is plagued occasionally by an ex-lover, Sarah Danby, by whom he has two illegitimate adult daughters, whose existence he invariably denies. He enjoys the hospitality of the landed aristocracy, he visits a brothel, he is fascinated by science, photography and railways, he is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, and he has himself tied to the mast of a ship in bad weather in order to paint a snowstorm. He is celebrated by some, and reviled by others. He refuses an offer of £100,000 from a millionaire who wants to buy all his work, preferring to bequeath it to the British nation, whereas Queen Victoria loathes his work. Throughout the story he is loved by his stoical housekeeper, Hannah, whom he takes for granted and whom he occasionally exploits sexually. Eventually, he leads a double existence, living incognito with Mrs. Booth in Chelsea, where he dies. Hannah is unaware of this until the very end.

“Mr. Turner is no barrel of laughs. It's a barrel of life - an extraordinary one.” -Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer | full review

Mr. Turner does resemble Topsy-Turvy in its meticulous yet vibrant recreation of the past and its ever-expanding thematic amplitude. This is a movie not only about one particular artist, but about art as both a field of human endeavor and an object of shifting cultural and economic value.” -Dana Stevens, Slate | full review

“What a glorious film this is, richly and immediately enjoyable, hitting its satisfying stride straight away. It's funny and visually immaculate; it combines domestic intimacy with an epic sweep and has a lyrical, mysterious quality that perfumes every scene, whether tragic or comic.” -Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian | full review

“Leigh’s generous approach to capturing the fullness of Turner’s life, through unhurried rhythms and scenes, makes Mr. Turner memorable.” -Keith Phipps, The Dissolve | full review

“Leigh embraces the contradictions in Turner. And in tandem with cinematographer Dick Pope, a master of light, he shows us the world as Turner sees it. The effect is harsh and ravishing.

Spanish with English subtitles

In 1988, Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, due to international pressure, is forced to call a plebiscite on his presidency. The country will vote YES or NO to Pinochet extending his rule for another eight years. Opposition leaders for the NO persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra (Gael Garcia Bernal), to spearhead their campaign. Against all odds, with scant resources and under scrutiny by the despot's minions, Saavedra and his team devise an audacious plan to win the election and set Chile free.

“Nominated by the Academy as the year's best foreign-language film, No grabs you hard, no mercy, and keeps you riveted.” – Rolling Stone, Peter Travers

“Larraín's script is punctuated by dark bursts of humor, and the filmmaker knowingly navigates his audience to a nail-biting - though never cloying, and fully warranted - climax.” - Simon Miraudo, Quickflix

“Marshall McLuhan called advertising the greatest art form of the 20th century. In No, Pablo Larraín’s sly, smart, fictionalized tale about the art of the sell during a fraught period in Chilean history, advertising isn’t only an art; it’s also a way of life.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“Larraín's unarguable point is that, in politics, if we wait for good to issue only from the pure in heart, we will be waiting a very long time.” - Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor

After their SS officer father and mother are taken by the victorious Allies at the end of World War II, five German children undertake a dramatic journey that exposes them to the reality and consequences of their parents' actions. Led by the eldest sibling, 14-year old Lore (striking newcomer Saskia Rosendahl), they set out on a harrowing exodus across a devastated country to reach their grandmother in the north. After meeting the charismatic, mysterious young refugee Thomas, Lore soon finds her world devastated by feelings of both hatred and desire as she must learn to trust the one person she has always been taught to hate in order to survive. Lush cinematography and an evocative, haunting mood infuse this unconventional take on the Holocaust legacy with unforgettable impact.

“Marshall McLuhan called advertising the greatest art form of the 20th century. In No, Pablo Larraín’s sly, smart, fictionalized tale about the art of the sell during a fraught period in Chilean history, advertising isn’t only an art; it’s also a way of life.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

Master Kariostami at full throttle, again

Directed by Abbas Kiarostami
Starring Tadashi Okuno, Rin Takanashi, Ryo Kase, Denden
Japan, France | 2012 | 109 min | Drama | Not Rated
Japanese with English subtitles

Fresh from of the triumph of his Tuscany-set Certified Copy, master filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami travels even further afield from his native Iran for this mysteriously beautiful romantic drama filmed entirely in Japan. Like Someone in Love revolves around the brief encounter between an elderly professor (Tadashi Okuno) and a sociology student (Rin Takanashi) who moonlights as a high-end escort. Dispatched to the old man by her boss—one of the professor’s former students—the young woman finds her latest client less interested in sex than in cooking her soup, and playing old Ella Fitzgerald’s records (like the one that gives the film its allusive title). Eventually, night gives way to day and a tense standoff with the student’s insanely jealous boyfriend (Ryō Kase); but as usual in Kiarostami, nothing is quite as it appears on the surface. Are these characters—who conjure in one another the specters of regret and roads not taken—meeting by chance, or is it fate? Is this love or merely something like it?

"Exquisitely made… An enchanting game of misfired passions and mistaken identities." - Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter

“Abbas Kiarostami’s Like Someone in Love is an outstanding example of ‘mise-en-scene’, an almost forgotten art in cinematography that has gradually been replaced by different aesthetic values. Here, one is reminded of the masterful skill of Preminger, at the height of his career, but Like Someone In Love is not just a show of masterful craftsmanship. The film is concrete, physical and profoundly enigmatic.” –

In 1988, Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, due to international pressure, is forced to call a plebiscite on his presidency. The country will vote YES or NO to Pinochet extending his rule for another eight years. Opposition leaders for the NO persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra (Gael Garcia Bernal), to spearhead their campaign.

After their SS officer father and mother are taken by the victorious Allies at the end of World War II, five German children undertake a dramatic journey that exposes them to the reality and consequences of their parents' actions. Led by the eldest sibling, 14-year old Lore (striking newcomer Saskia Rosendahl), they set out on a harrowing exodus across a devastated country to reach their grandmother in the north. After meeting the charismatic, mysterious young refugee Thomas, Lore soon finds her world devastated by feelings of both hatred and desire as she must learn to trust the one person she has always been taught to hate in order to survive. Lush cinematography and an evocative, haunting mood infuse this unconventional take on the Holocaust legacy with unforgettable impact.

Directed by Kim Nguyen
Starring Rachel Mwanza, Serge Kanyinda, Alain Lino, Eli Bastien

Canada | 2012 | Digital | 90min | Drama, History | Not Rated
French, Lingala with English subtitles

Montreal-based filmmaker Kim Nguyen paints a poignant and harrowing portrait of Komona, a 14-year-old girl (wonderfully played by nonprofessional actress Rachel Mwanza) who has been kidnapped from her African village by rebels to become a child soldier. She escapes from the camp with an older albino soldier and experiences for the very first time the joys of a peaceful and loving life, but a fresh tragedy will force her to confront and fight the ghosts haunting her mind. Although inspired by a real story that took place in Burma, Nguyen decided to film War Witch in the Democratic Republic of the Congo without giving a specific location to the plot. He worked on the film for 10 years, watching and catching children's points of view with his camera and mixing in tightly edited flashbacks in which the spirits of human beings appear with an ultra-realistic and violent storyline. But War Witch is also a poignant and impossible love story filled with magic, picturesque images, and even light moments like the powerful visit to an albino camp or the chasing of a white rooster.

Good stories don’t just happen, they’re crafted. We’ll look at the structure
of stories, particularly movies, and how that structure can be applied to writing,
with the acclaimed and influential book The Writer’s Journey: Mythic Structure
for Writers as our guide. Based on those principles, you’ll develop, share and
critique your own story summary and writing. This course is designed for any
level or ability, any genre and any place in the writing process.

The complete version, re-mastered by the director

Directed by Volker Schlöndorff
Starring David Bennent, Mario Adorf, Angela Winkler, Daniel Olbrychski, Andréa Ferréol, Charles Aznavour

Danzig, 1924. Oskar Matzerath is born with an intellect beyond his infancy. As he witnesses the hypocrisy of adulthood and society, he rejects both, and, at his third birthday, refuses to grow older. Caught in a state of perpetual childhood, Oskar lashes out with piercing screams and frantic poundings on his tin drum, while the unheeding world marches towards the madness and folly of WWII. Honored with the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, the current Director’s Cut reincorporates sequences and characters that novelist Günter Grass lobbied for - the Rasputin orgy and the crazed Treblinka survivor-disinfector Fajngold - from twenty-one minutes trimmed to the bin thirty years ago. The result is a visionary adaptation of Günter Grass’s acclaimed novel, an unforgettable fantasia of surreal imagery, striking eroticism, and unflinching satire.

Günter Grass

“One of cinema's greatest coming of age stories…” - Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com

“It stands with Rainer Werner Fassbinder's The Marriage of Maria Braun as one of the finest German films of the 1970s.” - Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice

“Volker Schlöndorff is perhaps the most profound of the young German directors who rose in the 1970s, and his brilliant movie is artistically fascinating.” - Glenn Erickson, Film Savant

“His visual translation of Grass’ mix of stark realism and comic fantasy is truly brilliant. “ – Tim Sheridan, Paste Magazine

“One of the ways in which the film is able to seem un-intimidated by the reputation of its source (Grass won a Nobel Prize in Literature; the film got a Best Foreign-Language Oscar®) stems from Schlondorff's decision to pitch it closer to Rabelais than Goethe as it visits the strife that rained down on Danzig (currently Gdansk, Poland),” - Jay Carr, Turner Classic Movies

She escapes from the camp with an older albino soldier and experiences for the very first time the joys of a peaceful and loving life, but a fresh tragedy will force her to confront and fight the ghosts haunting her mind.

“Can films from Africa succeed in the West? War Witch proves the answer Is YES.” - Jonathan Curiel,
NPR, PBS

"A moving and emotional powerhouse…War Witch packs a punch.” – Movieline

“In the middle of War Witch, there blooms a kind of love story that introduces a more rollicking side of African culture.” - Jay Stone, Postmedia News

“Canadian-based writer Kim Nguyen, little known beyond fantasy fest circles, handles the material, displaying a maturity, panache and emotional marksmanship that will elevate his reputation several notches.” – Leslie Felperin, Variety

“Rachel Mwanza, an acting newcomer discovered on the streets of Kinshasa, guides the film naturally. Much of Nicolas Bolduc's observant cinematography focuses on the emotions subtly registered on her face. Mwanza faces the difficult task -- and rises to the challenge -- of at once showing feelings and smothering them.” - Beth Hanna, Thompson on Hollywood!

“An incredibly compelling film about the changing face of Africa, with cultural spiritualism and violent oppression left to collide with fascinating results.” - Patrick Gamble, Cine Vue

Canada | 2012 | Digital | 90min | Drama, History | Not Rated
French, Lingala with English subtitles

Montreal-based filmmaker Kim Nguyen paints a poignant and harrowing portrait of Komona, a 14-year-old girl (wonderfully played by nonprofessional actress Rachel Mwanza) who has been kidnapped from her African village by rebels to become a child soldier. She escapes from the camp with an older albino soldier and experiences for the very first time the joys of a peaceful and loving life, but a fresh tragedy will force her to confront and fight the ghosts haunting her mind. Although inspired by a real story that took place in Burma, Nguyen decided to film War Witch in the Democratic Republic of the Congo without giving a specific location to the plot. He worked on the film for 10 years, watching and catching children's points of view with his camera and mixing in tightly edited flashbacks in which the spirits of human beings appear with an ultra-realistic and violent storyline. But War Witch is also a poignant and impossible love story filled with magic, picturesque images, and even light moments like the powerful visit to an albino camp or the chasing of a white rooster.

After their SS officer father and mother are taken by the victorious Allies at the end of World War II, five German children undertake a dramatic journey that exposes them to the reality and consequences of their parents' actions. Led by the eldest sibling, 14-year old Lore (striking newcomer Saskia Rosendahl), they set out on a harrowing exodus across a devastated country to reach their grandmother in the north. After meeting the charismatic, mysterious young refugee Thomas, Lore soon finds her world devastated by feelings of both hatred and desire as she must learn to trust the one person she has always been taught to hate in order to survive. Lush cinematography and an evocative, haunting mood infuse this unconventional take on the Holocaust legacy with unforgettable impact.

Montreal-based filmmaker Kim Nguyen paints a poignant and harrowing portrait of Komona, a 14-year-old girl (wonderfully played by nonprofessional actress Rachel Mwanza) who has been kidnapped from her African village by rebels to become a child soldier. She escapes from the camp with an older albino soldier and experiences for the very first time the joys of a peaceful and loving life, but a fresh tragedy will force her to confront and fight the ghosts haunting her mind. Although inspired by a real story that took place in Burma, Nguyen decided to film War Witch in the Democratic Republic of the Congo without giving a specific location to the plot. He worked on the film for 10 years, watching and catching children's points of view with his camera and mixing in tightly edited flashbacks in which the spirits of human beings appear with an ultra-realistic and violent storyline. But War Witch is also a poignant and impossible love story filled with magic, picturesque images, and even light moments like the powerful visit to an albino camp or the chasing of a white rooster.

Starring David Bennent, Mario Adorf, Angela Winkler, Daniel Olbrychski, Andréa Ferréol, Charles Aznavour

Danzig, 1924. Oskar Matzerath is born with an intellect beyond his infancy. As he witnesses the hypocrisy of adulthood and society, he rejects both, and, at his third birthday, refuses to grow older. Caught in a state of perpetual childhood, Oskar lashes out with piercing screams and frantic poundings on his tin drum, while the unheeding world marches towards the madness and folly of WWII. Honored with the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, the current Director’s Cut reincorporates sequences and characters that novelist Günter Grass lobbied for - the Rasputin orgy and the crazed Treblinka survivor-disinfector Fajngold - from twenty-one minutes trimmed to the bin thirty years ago. The result is a visionary adaptation of Günter Grass’s acclaimed novel, an unforgettable fantasia of surreal imagery, striking eroticism, and unflinching satire.

“One of cinema's greatest coming of age stories…” - Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com

“It stands with Rainer Werner Fassbinder's The Marriage of Maria Braun as one of the finest German films of the 1970s.” - Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice

“Volker Schlöndorff is perhaps the most profound of the young German directors who rose in the 1970s, and his brilliant movie is artistically fascinating.” - Glenn Erickson, Film Savant

“His visual translation of Grass’ mix of stark realism and comic fantasy is truly brilliant. “ – Tim Sheridan, Paste Magazine

“One of the ways in which the film is able to seem un-intimidated by the reputation of its source (Grass won a Nobel Prize in Literature; the film got a Best Foreign-Language Oscar®) stems from Schlondorff's decision to pitch it closer to Rabelais than Goethe as it visits the strife that rained down on Danzig (currently Gdansk, Poland),” - Jay Carr, Turner Classic Movies

Montreal-based filmmaker Kim Nguyen paints a poignant and harrowing portrait of Komona, a 14-year-old girl (wonderfully played by nonprofessional actress Rachel Mwanza) who has been kidnapped from her African village by rebels to become a child soldier. She escapes from the camp with an older albino soldier and experiences for the very first time the joys of a peaceful and loving life, but a fresh tragedy will force her to confront and fight the ghosts haunting her mind. Although inspired by a real story that took place in Burma, Nguyen decided to film War Witch in the Democratic Republic of the Congo without giving a specific location to the plot. He worked on the film for 10 years, watching and catching children's points of view with his camera and mixing in tightly edited flashbacks in which the spirits of human beings appear with an ultra-realistic and violent storyline. But War Witch is also a poignant and impossible love story filled with magic, picturesque images, and even light moments like the powerful visit to an albino camp or the chasing of a white rooster.

Directed by Kim Nguyen
Starring Rachel Mwanza, Serge Kanyinda, Alain Lino, Eli Bastien

Canada | 2012 | Digital | 90min | Drama, History | Not Rated
French, Lingala with English subtitles

Montreal-based filmmaker Kim Nguyen paints a poignant and harrowing portrait of Komona, a 14-year-old girl (wonderfully played by nonprofessional actress Rachel Mwanza) who has been kidnapped from her African village by rebels to become a child soldier. She escapes from the camp with an older albino soldier and experiences for the very first time the joys of a peaceful and loving life, but a fresh tragedy will force her to confront and fight the ghosts haunting her mind. Although inspired by a real story that took place in Burma, Nguyen decided to film War Witch in the Democratic Republic of the Congo without giving a specific location to the plot. He worked on the film for 10 years, watching and catching children's points of view with his camera and mixing in tightly edited flashbacks in which the spirits of human beings appear with an ultra-realistic and violent storyline. But War Witch is also a poignant and impossible love story filled with magic, picturesque images, and even light moments like the powerful visit to an albino camp or the chasing of a white rooster.

The Writer’s Journey: How the Movies Can Make Us Better Writers with Nicholas Garnett (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Wolfson Campus

Good stories don’t just happen, they’re crafted. We’ll look at the structure
of stories, particularly movies, and how that structure can be applied to writing,
with the acclaimed and influential book The Writer’s Journey: Mythic Structure
for Writers as our guide. Based on those principles, you’ll develop, share and
critique your own story summary and writing. This course is designed for any
level or ability, any genre and any place in the writing process.
Telling Your Story Part 2 (Advanced Fiction) with David Beaty (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

We'll read and discuss student stories and examine stories by modern masters
such as Hemingway, Alice Munro and Isaac Babel, paying close attention to
beginnings, middles and endings, style and theme. What makes a good beginning?
How can we develop a story? We'll concentrate on character creation and plot.
There will be short writing exercises in class, and students will be expected to
bring in their own stories to be read and discussed.
Writing Memoir with Kathie Klarreich (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Wolfson Campus

Let's go with the assumption that who we are today is the sum total of all our yesterdays. In this memoir-writing workshop, we'll go back and look at what those events, emotions, and incidents are that have ultimately made us unique. All you need is the willingness to reflect and the discipline to write. The rest will work itself out through guidance, discussion and a few solid writing techniques.
