FilmWorks Forum: A Plastic Ocean

FilmWorks Forum: A Plastic Ocean

Presented by Salisbury Forum

Sunday, January 21 – 11:30 AM

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.

YOGA: The Secret of Life: Lecture  - The Photographic Process

YOGA: The Secret of Life: Lecture - The Photographic Process

MIND-BODY-SPIRIT Program Series Closing Event

1.5 hrs

Sunday, January 14 at 1 PM

Francesco Mastalia’s photographs are taken on glass plates using the wet collodion process, a photographic technique dating back to the 1850s. With the use of a large format wooden camera and antique brass lens, glass plates are hand coated to produce one of a kind ambrotype images. The collodion process transcends us to another place, another time. When light and chemistry collide, we enter a mysterious world where art and science meet and the alchemy reveals itself.

In this lecture Francesco Mastalia will introduce the audience to the equipment and explain this fascinating process in depth, and will explain how the technique impacts the final images and informs his creative process.

This event is the last program presented in conjunction with our exhibition YOGA; The Secret of Life which leaves us later this month.

Wednesday, January 17, 6:30 PM

A New Documentary that Charts a Momentous Period of Change for The Met and New York City in the 50’s and 60’s from Director, Susan Froemke.

As the Metropolitan Opera launches its 133rd season this fall, a new film by multiple Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Susan Froemke surveys a remarkable period of the company’s rich history and a time of great change for New York. Drawing on rarely seen archival footage, stills, and recent interviews, The Opera House chronicles the creation of the Metropolitan Opera’s storied home of the last 50 years, against the backdrop of the artists, architects, and politicians who shaped the cultural life of New York City in the 50’s and 60’s. Among the notable figures in the film are famed soprano Leontyne Price, who opened the new Met in 1966 in Samuel Barber’s Antony and Cleopatra; Rudolf Bing, the Met’s imperious General Manager who engineered the move from the old house to the new one; Robert Moses, the unstoppable city planner who bulldozed an entire neighborhood to make room for Lincoln Center; and Wallace Harrison, whose quest for architectural glory was never fully realized.

He then rescues a mysterious blonde (Kim Novak) from the bay and sees a double of the girl, causing him to transform her image onto the dead girl’s body.

TCM Big Screen Classics: Sunset Boulevard

TCM Big Screen Classics: Sunset Boulevard

Wednesday, May 16

Cast: Gloria Swanson,
Director: Billy Wilder
Screenplay: Billy Wilder, Charles Brackett, D. M. Marshman Jr.

Gloria Swanson, as Norma Desmond, an aging silent-film queen, and William Holden, as the struggling young screenwriter who is held in thrall by her madness, created two of the screen’s most memorable characters in “Sunset Boulevard.” Winner of three Academy Awards®, director Billy Wilder’s powerful orchestration of the bizarre tale is a true cinematic classic. From the unforgettable opening sequence — a body found floating in a decayed mansion’s swimming pool — through the inevitable unfolding of tragic destiny, “Sunset Boulevard” is the definitive statement on the dark and desperate side of Hollywood. Erich von Stroheim as Desmond’s discoverer, ex-husband and butler, and Nancy Olson as the bright spot amidst unrelenting ominousness, are equally celebrated for their masterful performances.

Includes exclusive insight from Turner Classic Movies.

 


 

Royal Ballet: Manon

Royal Ballet: Manon

Wednesday, May 30, 7PM
Kenneth MacMillan’s powerful telling of Manon and Des Grieux’s tragic love is a masterpiece of modern ballet, set to music by Massenet.

Choreography: Kenneth MacMillan
Music: Jules Massenet
Conductor: Martin Yates

Kenneth MacMillan’s source for Manon was the 18th-century French novel by Abbé Prévost, already adapted for opera by Massenet and Puccini. Renowned dance musician Leighton Lucas and his assistant Hilda Gaunt provided a score drawn from across Massenet’s music, including his famous yearning Elégie as the theme for the lovers. The premiere was given on 7 March 1974, with the lead roles of Manon and Des Grieux danced by Antoinette Sibley and Anthony Dowell. The ballet quickly became a staple of The Royal Ballet’s repertory, and a touchstone of adult, dramatic dance.

 


 

TCM Big Screen Classics: The Producers

TCM Big Screen Classics: The Producers

A Special 50th Anniversary Event

Cast: Zero Mostel, Gene Wilder, Dick Shawn, Kenneth Mars, Lee Meredith
Writer/Director: Mel Brooks

“I want… I want… I want everything I’ve ever seen in the movies!” Once the King of The Great White Way, Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel) is reduced to romancing old ladies to finance his next flop show. But when nervous accountant Leopold Bloom (Gene Wilder) surmises that more money could be made from a flop than a hit, the next step is to produce the Busby Berkeleyesque musical Springtime for Hitler and to cast stoned-out Flower Child “LSD” (Dick Shawn) in the lead. A surefire flop — or is it? Writer/director Mel Brooks nabbed an Oscar® for Best Original Screenplay of 1968, while his movie skyrocketed from controversial cult comedy to Classic, now on the National Film Registry and umpteen lists of the funniest movies ever made, with Mostel & Wilder considered the greatest comedy team since Laurel & Hardy and The Marx Brothers.

See the restored film from Studiocanal and Rialto Pictures in honor of the 50th anniversary of its release. Includes exclusive insight from Turner Classic Movies.

 


 

Royal Ballet: Swan Lake

Royal Ballet: Swan Lake

Wednesday, July 18, 7PM
Live from the Royal Opera House, London
The Royal Ballet presents a new production of Tchaikovsky’s magnificent classical ballet, with additional choreography by Liam Scarlett and designs by John Macfarlane.

Choreography: Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov
Additional choreography: Liam Scarlett and Frederick Ashton
Music: Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky
Conductor: Koen Kessels

Swan Lake was Tchaikovsky’s first score for ballet. Given its status today as arguably the best loved and most admired of all classical ballets, it is perhaps surprising that at its premiere in 1877 Swan Lake was poorly received. It is thanks to the 1895 production by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov that Swan Lake has become part of not only ballet consciousness but also wider popular culture. That success is secured not only by the sublime, symphonic sweep of Tchaikovsky’s score, but also by the striking choreographic contrasts between Petipa’s royal palace scenes and the lyric lakeside scenes created by Ivanov.

 


 

TCM Big Screen Classics: The Big Lebowski

TCM Big Screen Classics: The Big Lebowski

A Special 20th Anniversary Event

Cast: Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore, John Turturro
Writers/Directors: Joel Coen, Ethan Coen

Jeff Bridges plays Jeff Lebowski who insists on being called “the Dude,” a laid-back, easygoing burnout who happens to have the same name as a millionaire whose wife owes a lot of dangerous people a whole bunch of money — resulting in the Dude having his rug soiled, sending him spiraling into the Los Angeles underworld.

The film is loosely inspired by the work of Raymond Chandler. Joel Coen stated: “We wanted to do a Chandler kind of story – how it moves episodically, and deals with the characters trying to unravel a mystery, as well as having a hopelessly complex plot that’s ultimately unimportant.”

The original score was composed by Carter Burwell, a longtime collaborator of the Coen brothers.
