Observing the Observer

Observing the Observer

On August 17, 2012, The Moviehouse Gallery will open an exhibition of art by Diane Love to run through November 1, 2012.
An Artist Reception with Ms. Love will be held on Saturday August 18 from 5-7PM.
Observing the Observer includes Love’s candid photographs from her series, Observing the Observer, and also a series of her one of a kind printed paintings, or “monoprints”.


Observing the Observer, according to Love, “is my voyeur’s view of people immersed in the world of art.”

Using black and white film, printed on canvas and stretched like a painting on wood stretchers, Observing the Observer incorporates Diane’s interest in both photography and painting. The photographs are bordered with black as if lifted from a contact sheet, numbers and all. With film fast vanishing Diane pays homage to the medium of film.

Love photographed the series in museums in Europe and the United States. Looking in the Rain was taken at the Fondation Maeght in France. On the Bench, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. These limited edition photographs range in size from 40 × 30 up to 72 × 60 inches.

MICHAEL

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.

Poesis and the Elements of Design

Poesis and the Elements of Design

1 Hour

Join widely published designers Pilar Proffitt and Robert Bristow of Poesis Design for a slide-show tour of luscious tactile imagery as they present their architectural and interior design work through their “thinker/maker” eyes.

In this talk, the husband and wife design team, known professionally as “Poesis,” dig a little deeper into their work, exposing the underlying thoughts that they believe give architecture resonance and depth. For them, architecture includes the entire built environment, from buildings, to interiors, to furnishings, to even objects. It all should have the same thoughtful approach and considered expression. Beyond styles, beyond trend, the talk explores the tactile and visual presence and meaning of architecture, and reveals how design can ground us in our place and time.

The talk includes discussion of their inspirations, those artistic tenets that they give the most weight to, and a look at the process of their work.

Reception to follow. Open to the Public, Free of Charge

“Pilar Proffitt and Robert Bristow use their “whole house concept,” to successfully design their ideal Litchfield County home. The couple sticks to keeping the essence and soul of what their creating alive, but still having a fun and interesting concept.” Cottages-Gardens.com

ICONS AND LANDSCAPES: ETERNAL LIGHT, HUDSON LIGHT

ICONS AND LANDSCAPES: ETERNAL LIGHT, HUDSON LIGHT

Please join us for a reception on Saturday November 16 from 5-7PM
Artist Martha Zimiles has been studying the art of Iconography for a number of years and will be giving a short talk at the opening reception to help our Western trained eyes understand what they are seeing. It is a rare opportunity to see an art form that is ancient, unfamiliar and otherworldly.

Initially there does not appear to be anything in common between the works of Millerton artists, Martha and Murray Zimiles, on exhibit at The Moviehouse Gallery through January 30, 2014.
Martha’s 12 Russian icons, painted with traditional egg tempera paints and gilded with 24K gold backgrounds or halos, and Murray’s hand colored prints primarily of landscapes; small in size but vast in space and vision adorn the walls. They share a refined sense of color and a high level of skill in execution but otherwise seem worlds apart. Looking deeper one sees that they share an approach that seeks to reveal something transcendent, especially through the way light is used.

Murray Zimiles is a Distinguished Professor of studio art at SUNY, Purchase College. His work has been widely exhibited around the world and is found in many important collections. His work is full of the revelatory effects of light, the feeling of a reality beyond what is clearly seen or depicted, a reaching for the sublime.

“Murray Zimiles’ landscape paintings…appear to exist outside time and place, a metaphysical space cloistered within a mythology of rolling fields, roaming animals and a fractured, pulsing light.” – Art historian Andre` van der Wende in an article in “Artscope”, New England’s premier culture magazine, Summer 2013

Human Terrain: War Becomes Academic

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.

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.

Reconstructing Memory: The Paintings of Patty Mullins

Reconstructing Memory: The Paintings of Patty Mullins

August 30 – November, 2014

Opening Reception, Saturday, August 30 – 5-7pm
All are welcome!

The Moviehouse is proud to announce the opening of a new exhibition this August showcasing the paintings of renowned local artist Patty Mullins.

Mullins’ work has been exhibited locally throughout New England, as well as in New York and Philadelphia, and has been shown at the National Academy Museum. Her paintings, particularly the landscapes and earlier figurative work, are all deeply evocative. They convey not only an image to the viewer but also a sense of time and place, and the feelings associated with them.

“My feelings are rooted in memory; I’ll be moved by a certain light, like the milky sunlight at a particular time of year, and remember the dust on a windowsill in a back hallway when I was a child, and the feelings that come up are overwhelming – so I try to paint that, or to find visual equivalence for the feelings, to make a picture that evokes those feelings in me, and possibly – hopefully – conveys something of that to the viewer.”—-Patty Mullins

Salisbury Forum presents Kids For Cash

Salisbury Forum presents 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

The Civic Life Project: 2015 Student Documentaries

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.

The Hudson: River at Risk

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. They were the first to fly for America in WW1, some of them making the ultimate sacrifice.

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
Ian Strever: Assistant Principa, Housatonic Valley Regional High School , Falls Village, CT
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 2005, Kildonan School co-founder Diana Hanbury King published the book One by One: Working With Dyslexia, The Story of Dunnabeck and Kildonan. 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

Hamlet has the world at his feet. Young, wealthy and living a hedonistic life studying abroad. Then word reaches him that his father is dead. Returning home he finds his world is utterly changed, his certainties smashed and his home a foreign land. Struggling to understand his place in a new world order he faces a stark choice. Submit, or rage against the injustice of his new reality.

Simon Godwin (The Two Gentlemen of Verona 2014) directs Paapa Essiedu as Hamlet in Shakespeare’s searing tragedy. As relevant today as when it was written, Hamlet confronts each of us with the mirror of our own mortality in an imperfect world.

Exhibition On Screen: Painting the Modern Garden - Monet to Matisse

Exhibition On Screen: Painting the Modern Garden - Monet to Matisse

1hr 43mins

Monday, August 1 – 7PM

Written and Directed by: Phil Grabsky

Claude Monet was an avid horticulturist and arguably the most important painter of gardens in the history of art, but he was not alone. Great artists like Van Gogh, Bonnard, Sorolla, Sargent, Pissarro and Matisse all saw the garden as a powerful subject for their art. These great artists, along with many other famous names, feature in an innovative and extensive exhibition from The Cleveland Museum of Art and The Royal Academy, London.

From the exhibition walls to the wonder and beauty of artists’ gardens like Giverny and Seebüll, the film takes a magical and widely travelled journey to discover how different contemporaries of Monet built and cultivated modern gardens to explore expressive motifs, abstract color, decorative design and utopian ideas. Guided by passionate curators, artists and garden enthusiasts, this remarkable collection of Impressionists, Post-Impressionists, and avant-garde artists of the early twentieth century will reveal the rise of the modern garden in popular culture and the public’s enduring facination with gardens today. Long considered spaces for expressing colour, light and atmosphere, the garden has occupied the creative minds of some of the worlds greatest artists. As Monet said, ‘Apart from painting and gardening, I’m no good at anything’

Captured Live from the Royal Opera House in London

Music: Jules Massenet
Contuctor: Antonio Pappano
Director: Benoit Jacquot

Based on Goethe’s novel The Sorrows of Young Werther, Massenet’s opera tells the story of the poet Werther’s hopeless love for Charlotte, who is committed to another man. The music is full of lyrical beauty, passion and emotional fervour, – small wonder that Werther is often considered to be the composer’s finest work. The Royal Opera’s Music Director Antonio Pappano returns to conduct film, theatre and opera director Benoît Jacquot’s classic production. Italian tenor Vittorio Grigolo stars as Werther, alongside Joyce Di Donato, who sings her first Charlotte (one of the great French mezzo roles) in this staging.

For one bustling Manhattan apartment building, the real day starts after the folks on two legs leave for work and school. That’s when the pets of every stripe, fur and feather begin their own nine-to-five routine: hanging out with each other, trading humiliating stories about their owners, or auditioning adorable looks to get better snacks. The building’s top dog, Max (voiced by Louis C.K.), a quick-witted terrier rescue who’s convinced he sits at the center of his owner’s universe, finds his pampered life rocked when she brings home Duke (Eric Stonestreet), a sloppy, massive mess of a mongrel with zero interpersonal skills. When this reluctant canine duo finds themselves out on the mean streets of New York, they have to set aside their differences and unite against a fluffy-yet-cunning bunny named Snowball (Kevin Hart), who’s building an army of Ex-Pets abandoned by their owners and out to turn the tables on humanity…all before dinnertime.

Exhibition On Screen: Painting the Modern Garden - Monet to Matisse

Monday, August 1 – 7PM

Written and Directed by: Phil Grabsky

Claude Monet was an avid horticulturist and arguably the most important painter of gardens in the history of art, but he was not alone. Great artists like Van Gogh, Bonnard, Sorolla, Sargent, Pissarro and Matisse all saw the garden as a powerful subject for their art. These great artists, along with many other famous names, feature in an innovative and extensive exhibition from The Cleveland Museum of Art and The Royal Academy, London.

From the exhibition walls to the wonder and beauty of artists’ gardens like Giverny and Seebüll, the film takes a magical and widely travelled journey to discover how different contemporaries of Monet built and cultivated modern gardens to explore expressive motifs, abstract color, decorative design and utopian ideas. Guided by passionate curators, artists and garden enthusiasts, this remarkable collection of Impressionists, Post-Impressionists, and avant-garde artists of the early twentieth century will reveal the rise of the modern garden in popular culture and the public’s enduring facination with gardens today. Long considered spaces for expressing colour, light and atmosphere, the garden has occupied the creative minds of some of the worlds greatest artists. As Monet said, ‘Apart from painting and gardening, I’m no good at anything’
