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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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?

“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.

Moderator: Jody Soja, Head of School at Indian Mountain

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.

Sunday, May 21, 11 AM

Sponsored by The Salisbury School

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.

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.

Exhibition on Screen: Michaelangelo, Love and Death

Sunday, July 9, 6PM

Directed by David Bickerstaff.

The spectacular sculptures and paintings of Michelangelo seem so familiar to us, but what do we really know about this renaissance genius? Who was this ambitious and passionate man?

A virtuoso craftsman, Michelangelo’s artistry is evident in everything he touched. Beautiful and diverse works such as the towering statue of David, the deeply moving Pietà in the Papal Basilica of St. Peter and his tour-de-force, the Sistine Chapel ceiling still leave us breathless today.

Spanning his 89 years, Michelangelo – Love and Death, takes a cinematic journey from the print and drawing rooms of Europe, through the great chapels and museums of Florence, Rome and the Vatican to explore the tempestuous life of Michelangelo. We go in search of a greater understanding of this most charismatic figure, his relationship with his contemporaries and his valuable artistic legacy. Through expert commentary and Michelangelo’s own words, this film takes a fresh look at an enigmatic man whose life is celebrated in every mark and every stroke he made.

A giant artistic force and universally loved, discover why Michelangelo is without a doubt one of the greatest artists of the Renaissance – and perhaps of all time.

Directed by: Susan Froemke and John Hoffman
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.

RANCHER, FARMER, FISHERMAN weaves together the stories of four unlikely conservation heroes working in America’s heartland. At a moment when it seems that collaboration is not just nonexistent but impossible, these 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, Director John Hoffman will lead a panel discussion and Q&A. Check back soon for the full line-up.
