FilmWorks Forum: Human Terrain: War Becomes Academic

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2012

A Special Screening of Award-Winning Film ‘Human Terrain’ with Filmmaker James Der Derian
Presented by the SALISBURY FORUM in collaboration with the FilmWorks Forum of The Moviehouse.

‘Human Terrain’is two stories in one. The first exposes a new Pentagon effort to enlist the best and the brightest in a struggle for hearts and minds. Facing long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. military initiates ‘Human Terrain Systems’, a controversial program that seeks to make cultural awareness the centerpiece of the new counterinsurgency strategy. Designed to embed social scientists with combat troops, the program swiftly comes under attack as a misguided and unethical effort to gather intelligence and target enemies. Gaining rare access to war games in the Mojave Desert and training exercises at Quantico and Fort Leavenworth, Human Terrain takes the viewer into the heart of the war machine and a shadowy collaboration between American academics and the military.

FilmWorks Forum: MICHAEL

18 Minutes, followed by Q&A

Saturday, December 1, 2012 - 11:00 a.m.
Open to the Public, Free of Charge

In celebrating local filmmakers, we are proud to announce a free private screening at the Moviehouse of the film “Michael” directed by alum of Indian Mountain School, Hotchkiss, and most recently New York University, Harry Bainbridge

Shot entirely at Indian Mountain School, “Michael”, a short drama, chronicles the experience of one boy at a youth boarding school on September 11, 2001. A poignant investigation of society’s expectations of loss versus the real experience of it, the film is both personal and universal, drawing on the director’s autobiography to expose the surrealness felt by all in the immediate aftermath of tragedy. Michael must grapple with the ghost of his father, a man whom he never knew, but who defines him, and whose death before Michael’s birth in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing was publicly lamented, but privately withheld. Michael explores the experience of absence on an occasion that privileges those who know somebody who died’ over those who remain outsiders.

After the film the director and main stars of the film, Adam McKoy (Michael), and Lizzie Devlin (Claire), will hold a Q and A, followed by a reception. The screening and reception are free, open to all in the community, and all who come will receive a free DVD of the film.

SPECIAL DOCUMENTARY FILM SCREENING Drugs, Guns, Redemption & Edward Snowden: Stories from Young Filmmakers Exploring the Drug Culture, Gun Violence, Sexual Assault and NSA Surveillance.

Sunday, June 8, 2014
Admission: FREE

The Civic Life Project is an alternative to the standard High School Civics Class. The project is a collaboration with high school teachers, which allows educators to use filmmaking to transform the classroom into a laboratory for civics. The Civic Life Project brings professional journalists and filmmakers into the classroom to mentor students as they produce a short documentary film. By capturing the imagination of students, filmmaking offers a unique approach to education; where students discover that education can go beyond the classroom. The goal is to empower students, teaching them that they have a voice and the power to transform their community.

FilmWorks Forum/Salisbury Forum:Kids For Cash

FilmWorks Forum/Salisbury Forum:Kids For Cash

Sunday, February 1, 2015.

Salisbury Forum and Filmworks Forum of The Moviehouse present:

Kids for Cash is a riveting look behind the notorious scandal that rocked the nation when it first came to light in 2009. Beginning in the wake of the shootings at Columbine, a small town in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania elected a charismatic judge who was hell-bent on keeping kids in line. Under his reign, over 3,000 children were ripped from their families and imprisoned for years for crimes as petty as creating a fake MySpace page. When one parent dared to question this harsh brand of justice, it was revealed that the judge had received millions of dollars in payments from the privately-owned juvenile detention centers where the kids—most of them only in their early teens—were incarcerated. Exposing the hidden scandal behind the headlines, KIDS FOR CASH unfolds like a real-life thriller. In a major dramatic coup, the film features extensive, exclusive access to the judges behind the scheme. Now serving a 28 year sentence in federal prison, the former juvenile court judge at the heart of the scandal shares his ulterior motives.

Before the film: In a short video, Senator Christopher Murphy (D-CT), who has made improving juvenile justice one of his legislative goals, introduced the film.
Screening was followed by a Q&A with Director Robert May

FilmWorks Forum: The Civic Life Project 2015

A Special Presentation by The Salisbury Forum in Collaboration with FilmWorks Forum

Sunday, June 7 – Doors Open at 11:00 a.m. show starts 11:30 p.m.

Should marijuana be legalized in Connecticut? Why is there so much mistrust between police and minority youths? Can teenagers live without social media? What happens when they try to give up their cell phones and tablets for two weeks? Are many children being over-medicated for ADD and ADHD?

These are some of the complex and controversial subjects student film makers tackled this year under the Civic Life Project. Many of these high school juniors and seniors found their views changed when they started asking questions and getting answers.

Students at the Stamford Academy charter school had never really talked to a police officer before starting their documentary on police “Mistrust.” Housey students are finding out what life is really like for a gay, lesbian or transgender teenager. Another group is working on the controversial issues involved in teaching about religions in a public school.

Please join us to see these interesting and provocative films and hear from the student filmmakers on why they chose their subjects and what they have learned.

FilmWorks Forum: The Hudson: River at Risk

FilmWorks Forum: The Hudson: River at Risk

2 Hrs.

Sunday, August 16th – 11:30 a.m.

A FilmWorks Forum presentation of three important short films outlining the current risks facing our beloved river and its environs.

BOMB TRAINS ON THE HUDSON
THE LONG SHADOW OF INDIAN POINT
A BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATERS

Each film will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Filmmaker & Director Jon Bowermaster:

Panel participants include:
Jon Bowermaster: Filmmaker/Moderator
Ned Sullivan, President, Scenic Hudson
Didi Barrett, NYS Assemblymember
Cliff Weathers, Communications Director, Riverkeeper

Listen to WHDD’s Marshall Miles interview Jon Bowermaster & Ned Sullivan about this event.

For many years, the Hudson river, like so many waterways, was treated like an infinite waste barrel, a receptacle for poisonous chemicals, hazardous waste, trash of all descriptions. But in the past forty years, thanks to a committed group of environmentalists and their agencies (Riverkeeper, Scenic Hudson, Clearwater and more) the river has become markedly cleaner. While it is still an under-utilized natural resource, increasingly it is used by boaters, kayakers, even swimmers as a recreational playground. But the river, in the words of Riverkeeper’s John Lipscomb, has “had a foot on its neck” for more than one hundred years and still today, despite the efforts to clean it up, there are environmental risks and concerns.

Since it is our hometown river (Oceans 8 Films are headquartered here in the Hudson Valley), Bowermaster and his crew decided to take a closer look at several of the more prominent risks: – The boom in transportation of crude oil down the river by barge and rail car – The always-problematic aging nuclear power plant at Indian Point – The impact of the building of a replacement to the Tappan Zee Bridge and its ultimate teardown – the largest construction project in North America.

Seven years in the making and filmed on three continents, as well as locally at the Rhinebeck Aerodrome, this documentary tells the dramatic story of a group of Yale students motivated by patriotism, courage, and honor, joined the Navy at the outbreak of World War I, learned to fly, and went on to battle deadly U-boats over the Atlantic.

FilmWorks Forum: Most Likely to Succeed

Sunday, April 3 – 11:00 a.m.

Writer/Director: Greg Whiteley
Cast: Scott Swaaley

After the screening there will be a panel discussion with:
Charles Noyes: Farm Curriculum and Programming Coordinator, The Hotchkiss School, Lakeville, CT.
Marcie Wistar: Middle and High school science teacher, Kildonan School.
Lisa Carter: Principal, Salisbury Central School
Sarah Sprague: Science Department Chair, Indian Mountain School

Matt Dilley: Science Deptartment Chair & Physics Teacher, Millbrook School
Amanda Ruhe: Science and Technology Teacher, Dutchess Day School
Sandra Charlap: Founder & Advisor for Edge, a self-directed, interdisciplinary learning program at The Kildonan School

The current educational system in the United States was developed a century ago during the rise of the industrial age and was once the envy of the world. However, the world economy has since transformed profoundly, but the US education system has not. Schools are attempting to teach and test skills, when mastered, that still leave graduates woefully unprepared for the 21st Century. After presenting this problem, the documentary focuses on the story of a school in San Diego that is completely rethinking what the experience of going to school looks like. As we follow students, parents and teachers through a truly unorthodox school experience, the audience is forced to consider what sort of educational environment is most likely to succeed in the 21st century?

In it, Diana discusses her stories of working with dyslexic students for over six decades. Now emmy Award winning filmmaker Harvey Hubell V has created a documentary chronicling King and her groundbreaking work.

“I have been teaching dyslexic students all my working life. This book is an account of my experiences, and of the thousands of teachers and students with whom it has been my privilege to work. While the students remain the same—endlessly fascinating in their ways of learning and failing to learn—other things have changed during the past sixty years.”—-Diana King

FilmWorks Forum: SCREENAGERS - Growing Up in the Digital Age

Documentary & Panel Discussion
Sponsored by Indian Mountain School

Sunday, October 23, 11 AM

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well.

In SCREENAGERS, as with her award-winning documentaries on mental health, Delaney takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance.

After the film there will be a panel discussion & Q&A about the topics presented.

Following the screening, you are invited to stay for a discussion with health care professionals: Donna DiMartino, RN, MSN, Virginia Gold, LSW, Dr. Mark Marshall, DO, Donna Schmidt, RN & the Rev. Eileen Epperson

Medicine has triumphed in modern times, transforming the dangers of childbirth, injury, and disease from harrowing to manageable. But when it comes to the inescapable realities of aging and death, what medicine can do often runs counter to what it should.

Through eye-opening research and gripping stories of his own patients and family, Gawande reveals the suffering this dynamic has produced. Nursing homes, devoted above all to safety, battle with residents over the food they are allowed to eat and the choices they are allowed to make. Doctors, uncomfortable discussing patients’ anxieties about death, fall back on false hopes and treatments that are actually shortening lives instead of improving them. And families go along with all of it.

Donna DiMartino, Hospice Director, SVNA talked to WHDD’s Marshall Miles about BEING MORTAL recently. Click this link to listen in.

Produced, Written & Directed by: Stephanie J. Castillo

Destined to be among the great virtuosos of jazz, Thomas Chapin, an alto sax and flute master, was nearing the pinnacle of his meteoric rise when leukemia took him in 1998, at the age of 40. Fame and world recognition eluded him despite the mark he left on jazz n the ’80s and ’90s, but his passionate life, and incandescent music remain unforgettable to fans who knew him, and musicians who played with him. Today, his music is inspiring a new generation of artists and musicians who have discovered his legacy. This new documentary draws an intimate portrait of this musical explorer who transcended the boundaries of jazz and dissolved the distinctions between sound and music. This film ensures that he will no longer be only a footnote in jazz and his indelible mark will be made.

After the film: Two of the musicians featured - Peter McEachern and Mario Pavone, who both played with Chapin, will lead a community discussion and Q&A with the film’s Writer, Producer & Director – Stephanie Castillo.

The 5th Annual Presentation by The Salisbury Forum and FilmWorks Forum of The Moviehouse

Young filmmakers from our local high schools explore a variety of issues that impact teens, schools and communities in a presentation of short documentaries. The CIVIC LIFE PROJECT challenges students to learn about our democracy, discover their community and “find their voice” through the creation of documentary film.

The five films being presented on Sunday are:
1. Education Declined – How funding cuts affect the quality of education at one of the state’s premier magnet schools and why court orders prevent the school from adding more students even though it has a long waiting list of applicants.
2. The Magic of The Atom – How the nuclear power safety issue and the alternatives to fossil fuels are becoming entwined in the vagaries of the marketplace.
3. Pre-trial Detention – This film from the Stamford Academy charter school follows a fellow student who was jailed for three months before he even had a trial because he couldn’t make a $150,000 bail.
4. The Last Decision – In this film from Monument Mountain High School students explore how to prevent their friends from making the same mistakes that led to the death of a fellow student in a DUI accident.
5. The Dark Room – Students from Housatonic Valley Regional High School examine how society perceives mental illness and the stigmas associated with it. The film features a fellow student who suffered from depression. There are interviews with other patients and those working on their behalf.

These are provocative and well produced documentaries on important social and public issues. The student film makers will be on hand to discuss their projects.

FilmWorks Forum: The Long Friday

FilmWorks Forum: The Long Friday

Sunday, June 25, 11 AM

In this FilmWorks Forum presentation you will see an excerpt of a new documentary film by local filmmaker Pamela Hogan, which will be followed by a talk, Q&A and community discussion moderated by Anne Makepeace with Pamela Hogan and two women featured in the film – Gudrun Jonsdottir and Elisabet Gunnarsdottir–joining us live via Skype from Reykjavik.

The Long Friday is the inspiring and little-known story of the women of Iceland who brought their country to its knees in a single day. On a crisp Fall morning in 1975, 90% of Iceland’s women walked off the job and out of their homes, refusing to work, cook or take care of the children from noon to midnight. Initially seen as a huge joke by many men, the meticulously planned collective action came to be known as the long Friday – a day that transformed the national narrative about the place of women in society and laid the foundation for Iceland’s proud title today as the world’s most gender-equal country.

The film will strike a chord with women everywhere whose feminist revolutions remain unfinished. Today, for the eighth year in a row, Iceland ranks #1 on the global gender-equality index – while the U.S. has dropped to a dismal #45. American women are participating in the workforce and heading households in greater numbers than ever before. Yet the gender wage gap amounts to as much as $1 million per woman over the span of a her career; and shockingly the U.S. is the world’s only industrialized country that does not guarantee paid parental leave.

Pamela Hogan is an Emmy award-winning filmmaker known for the series Women, War and Peace, and Looks Like Laury, Sounds Like Laury, named one of “The Best TV Shows of 2015” by The New York Times.

Co-Directed and Produced by: Beth Aala
Produced by: Susan Froemke and Miriam Horn
Narrated by: Tom Brokaw
Based on the book by Miriam Horn (forthcoming from W.W. Norton in September of this year).

From America’s heartland come four unexpected warriors for a hidden but far-reaching conservation movement: a Montana rancher, two Kansas farmers, and a Louisiana fisherman. With a passion for the terrain that defines their identity, each has bridged long-standing divides—between rural communities and outside experts, people that work the land and federal bureaucrats— to preserve the landscapes that sustain their livelihoods. Discovery’s RANCHER, FARMER, FISHERMAN, shines a light on this unheralded movement and offers inspiring solutions to the challenges confronting America’s wild land and wildlife, fisheries and croplands. Weaving together the stories of four unlikely conservation heroes working in America’s heartland, working families cross political boundaries to arrive at real solutions for protecting the land and sea that define our country – and are crucial to all of our survival.

Following the screening David Haight, NY State Director – American Farmland Trust will lead a panel discussion and Q&A with:

FREE COMMUNITY SCREENING

J Galassi

Join us after the film for a discussion with the filmmakers, moderated by Jonathan Galassi, President & Publisher – Farrar, Straus & Giroux.

Two years in the making, “Il Villaggio di Millbrook” (“The Village of Millbrook”) is a beautifully filmed, sensitive documentary about immigration and assimilation in small-town America. It was the vision of Barbara Hanson Pierce, a longtime Dutchess County resident, who wanted to explore Millbrook’s Italian roots. The film grew out of Millbrook’s Museum in the Streets© project, a permanent, bi-lingual, historical walking tour of the village, which Pierce, as co-chair, shepherded to its opening in 2014. As a follow-up, she wanted to film the stories of some of Millbrook’s oldest families of Italian descent, whose ancestors came in the late 19th and early 20th centuries to work on the great estates.Through a combination of skillful camera work and seamless editing, the film interweaves historical photos with 15 moving and sometimes amusing interviews. It combines memory and nostalgia, and conveys a sense of the fabric of the community that united these Italian immigrants in their new country, as they adapted to this small village in upstate New York. The historical photos in the film were culled from a wide variety of places, including the Millbrook Historical Society, the Library of Congress, and the Houston Museum of Fine Arts. Jonathan Robertson composed an original score.

Presented by Salisbury Forum

Sunday, January 21, 11:30 AM

Dr. Beth Gershuny

With post-screening discussion led by: Mark K. Spalding, President of The Ocean Foundation and Angel Braestrup, Executive Director of the Munson Foundation

When producer Jo Ruxton joined an expedition to the so-called Great Pacific Garbage Patch in the North Pacific Gyre, 1500 miles off the coast of San Francisco, to ascertain its impact and discovered free-floating microplastics instead of an anticipated solid mass that could be contained, Jo knew she had to begin the film that would become A Plastic Ocean.

The problem of plastic pollution is growing exponentially every year; we are producing more than 300 million tons of plastic, half of this is designed for single use, and each year around 8 million tons of it ends up in our oceans. We can solve this problem and we can do it by educating and engaging everyone in a conversation to rethink plastic. Plastic Oceans is working to change the way we deal with plastic waste by challenging society’s perception that this indestructible substance can be treated as ‘disposable’. Plastic Oceans Foundation engages people of all ages, in all social situations, to understand the danger of continuing to perceive plastic to be disposable. Once they become aware of the ultimate threat to human health, it will become a personal choice to prevent plastic waste from entering the environment.

RSC Live: Twelfth Night

Sunday, March 11 – 1PM

Christopher Luscombe, Director of the ‘glorious’ (Daily Telegraph) Love’s Labour’s Lost and Much Ado About Nothing (2014 and 2016), returns to tackle Shakespeare’s greatest comedy, a brilliantly bittersweet account of “the whirligig of time”, with Adrian Edmondson (Bottom, The Young Ones) in the role of Malvolio and Kara Tointon (ITV’s Mr Selfridge and Sound of Music Live!) in the role of Olivia.

Twelfth Night is a tale of unrequited love – hilarious and heartbreaking. Twins are separated in a shipwreck, and forced to fend for themselves in a strange land. The first twin, Viola, falls in love with Orsino, who dotes on OIivia, who falls for Viola but is idolised by Malvolio. Enter Sebastian, who is the spitting image of his twin sister…

Exhibition on Screen: Cezanne, Portraits of a Life

1hr 30mins

Tuesday, March 20, 7 PM
Sunday, March 25, 1 PM

Director: Phil Grabsky.

The third documentary in exhibition on Screen’s 5th Season is one of the most talked-about exhibitions of the year. Dedicated to the portrait work of Paul Cézanne, the exhibition opens in Paris before traveling to London and Washington.

“There was nothing new about an artist painting a self-portrait – Dürer painted about a dozen, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael and plenty more left impressions of themselves. But something happens in the 19th century – maybe it reflects (excuse the pun) the improvement of mirrors, maybe the changing status of artists (and the fact they had the time and economic security to do self-portraits which were hardly likely to sell or be sold) or maybe something about self-absorbtion, self-criticism and self-analysis that develops as the 19th headed towards the 20th century. Cézanne – like his compatriot Van Gogh – left behind a life story in paint. As a film-maker, it’s a fantastic resource. The other fantastic resource we have is his letters. Working one’s way through those offers so much insight into his life and work – just as it did with Monet, Van Gogh and (another film I made recently) Chopin. As so often with biographies, the more I learnt about Cézanne, the more I understood and appreciated his work. I hope I and my team can convey that through the film to you all too.” —-Phil Grabsky

Christopher Luscombe, Director of the ‘glorious’ (Daily Telegraph) Love’s Labour’s Lost and Much Ado About Nothing (2014 and 2016), returns to tackle Shakespeare’s greatest comedy, a brilliantly bittersweet account of “the whirligig of time”, with Adrian Edmondson (Bottom, The Young Ones) in the role of Malvolio and Kara Tointon (ITV’s Mr Selfridge and Sound of Music Live!) in the role of Olivia.

The first twin, Viola, falls in love with Orsino, who dotes on OIivia, who falls for Viola but is idolised by Malvolio. Enter Sebastian, who is the spitting image of his twin sister…

 


 

Exhibition on Screen: Cezanne, Portraits of a Life

Exhibition on Screen: Cezanne, Portraits of a Life

Tuesday, March 20, 7 PM
Sunday, March 25, 1 PM

Director: Phil Grabsky.

The third documentary in exhibition on Screen’s 5th Season is one of the most talked-about exhibitions of the year. Dedicated to the portrait work of Paul Cézanne, the exhibition opens in Paris before traveling to London and Washington.

“There was nothing new about an artist painting a self-portrait – Dürer painted about a dozen, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael and plenty more left impressions of themselves. But something happens in the 19th century – maybe it reflects (excuse the pun) the improvement of mirrors, maybe the changing status of artists (and the fact they had the time and economic security to do self-portraits which were hardly likely to sell or be sold) or maybe something about self-absorbtion, self-criticism and self-analysis that develops as the 19th headed towards the 20th century. Cézanne – like his compatriot Van Gogh – left behind a life story in paint. As a film-maker, it’s a fantastic resource. The other fantastic resource we have is his letters. Working one’s way through those offers so much insight into his life and work – just as it did with Monet, Van Gogh and (another film I made recently) Chopin. As so often with biographies, the more I learnt about Cézanne, the more I understood and appreciated his work. I hope I and my team can convey that through the film to you all too.” —-Phil Grabsky
