FilmWorks Forum: Il Villaggio di Millbrook

FilmWorks Forum: Il Villaggio di Millbrook

Presented in partnership with Beartooth Film Productions
Sunday, November 19 – 11 AM


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.

NT Live: King Lear by William Shakespeare

NT Live: King Lear by William Shakespeare

Broadcast live from London’s West End, see Ian McKellen’s “extraordinarily moving portrayal” – Independent

Thursday, September 27, 6PM

Chichester Festival Theatre’s production received five-star reviews for its sell-out run, and transfers to the West End for a limited season. Jonathan Munby directs this contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play.

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends.

Summer Exhibition - GETZ: Covers from “The New Yorker” Magazine

Summer Exhibition - GETZ: Covers from “The New Yorker” Magazine

Millerton’s FALL FOR ART Artist Reception: Saturday, October 6, 4-6pm
Meet the artist’s daughter – Sarah Getz – who will speak to the pieces on exhibit and share insights into her late father’s work.

Our Summer Exhibition features the iconic work of the late Arthur Getz. Getz is best known for his fifty-year career as a cover artist for The New Yorker magazine. Between 1938 and 1988, two hundred and thirteen Getz covers appeared, making Getz the most prolific New Yorker cover artist of the twentieth century.

The show will feature thirty of Getz’s original cover paintings, covering the span of Getz’s work from the 1950’s through to the 1980’s. The works for this extraordinary exhibition have been generously loaned to The Moviehouse by Getz’s family and are not for sale.

The writer John Updike, in his foreword to The Complete Book of Covers from The New Yorker, 1925 – 1989, wrote: “The artist who has contributed most covers is Arthur Getz, whose alert eye and confident brush find endless silent dramas of contrast and tone in the world around us…”



Living in the Future’s Past

Living in the Future’s Past

A Film by Susan Kucera
Presented by Jeff Bridges

Tuesday, October 9, 7PM

What kind of future to we want to live in? Jeff Bridges presents this beautifully photographed 4K tour de force of original thinking on who we are and the life challenges we face. This powerful, poetic and thought-provoking film challenges our current way of thinking and provides original insights into our subconscious motivations, their unintended consequences and the changes we need to make to our psychology, and way of being, in order to solve the ecological crises we have brought upon ourselves as a result of our primitive thoughts and desires.

Jeff, alongside prominent scientists and authors, weaves evolution, emergence, entropy, dark ecology, and what some are calling ‘the end of nature’, into an engrossing story that helps us understand our place among the species of Earth’s household.
