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.

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
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
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
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.

Sunday, June 8, 2014
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.
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
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.

Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her.

The NY Film Critics Series presents live, interactive, pre-release movies and big screen HD simulcast interviews, and interactive Q&A with the stars and filmmakers.
Academy Award winner Russell Crowe makes his directorial debut on The Water Diviner, an epic and inspiring tale of one man’s life-changing journey of discovery. Crowe also stars in the film as Australian farmer Joshua Connor, who, in 1919, goes in search of his three missing sons, last known to have fought against the Turks in the bloody Battle of Gallipoli. Arriving in Istanbul, he is thrust into a vastly different world, where he encounters others who have suffered their own losses in the conflict: Ayshe (Olga Kurylenko), a strikingly beautiful but guarded hotelier raising a child alone; her young, spirited son, Orhan (Dylan Georgiades), who finds a friend in Connor; and Major Hasan (Yilmaz Erdoğan), a Turkish officer who fought against Connor’s boys and who may be this father’s only hope. With seemingly insurmountable obstacles in his path, Connor must travel across the battle-scarred Turkish landscape to find the truth…and his own peace.
