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 1st at 11AM

Open to the Public, Free of Charge

In celebrating local filmmakers, we are proud to announce a free private screening at the Moviehouse on Saturday, December 1st at 11am 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.


‘Michael’ is 18 minutes long. Shortly after 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 with food and drink. The screening and reception is absolutely 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

Transcendence

Rated: PG-13 for sci-fi action and violence, some bloody images, brief strong language and sensuality.

Cast: Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Christoph Waltz, Morgan Freeman, Rebecca Hall
Director: Wally Pfister
Screenplay: Noah Oppenheim

Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed—to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can…but if they should. Their worst fears are realized as Will’s thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him.

Winner of seven 2013 Olivier Awards in the UK, including Best New Play, this thrilling new production has been hailed by The London Times as “‘a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle.”

Director: Marianne Elliot
Adapted by: Simon Stephens, from the award-winning novel of the same name by Mark Haddon.

Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

RICHARD II by William Shakespeare

2 hours 55 minutes (including a 20 minute interval)

Starring: David Tennant as Richard II
Directed by: Gregory Doran, RSC Artistic Director

Richard is King, ordained by God to lead his people. But he is also a man of very human weakness. A man whose vanity threatens to divide the great houses of England and drag his people into a dynastic civil war that will last 100 years. David Tennant gives a bravado performance of a multi-layered, complex and intelligent medieval king in Shakespeare’s masterful history play. Gregory Doran’s production is superbly orchestrated. This is a lucid, moving production packed with tremendous performances. From Michael Pennington’s John of Gaunt, the last great Englishman, to Oliver Ford Davies’ wonderfully bewildered Duke of York.

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 Lunchbox

The Lunchbox

105 Minutes

Rated: PG

Director: Ritesh Batra
Screenplay: Ritesh Batra & Rutvik Oza
Cast: Irrfan Khan, Nimrat Kaur, Nawazuddin Siddiqui

A mistaken delivery in Mumbai’s famously efficient lunchbox delivery system connects a young housewife to an old man in the dusk of his life as they build a fantasy world together through notes in the lunchbox. In the big city of Mumbai, that crushes dreams and recycles them every day, both characters find a dream to hold on to. Ila begins a fantastical affair with a mystery suitor, pouring her heart into cooking meals for him. Saajan looks forward to lunch box deliveries from a mystery woman every day. As the lunchbox goes back and forth, this fantasy becomes so elaborate that it threatens to overwhelm their reality. The film is the story of the life we dream of versus the life we live in, and of the courage it takes to turn out fantasies into reality.

“…a pleasure, from the fascinating intricacies of Mumbai-style interlocking lunch containers to the quietly masterful performance of Khan.”—-Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times

National Theatre Live: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

National Theatre Live: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Thursday, May 22 – 7:00PM
Sunday, June 1 – 1:00PM

Winner of seven 2013 Olivier Awards in the UK, including Best New Play, this thrilling new production has been hailed by The London Times as “‘a phenomenal combination of storytelling and spectacle.”

Director: Marianne Elliot
Adapted by: Simon Stephens, from the award-winning novel of the same name by Mark Haddon.

Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world.

“A theatrical rush equal to anything on the West End stage…”—-The London Times

“A beautiful ingenious and deeply-felt production…”The Daily Telegraph

“Hugely entertaining. There is no point resisting…”—-The Observer

RICHARD II by William Shakespeare

2 hours 55 minutes (including a 20 minute interval)

Starring: David Tennant as Richard II
Directed by: Gregory Doran, RSC Artistic Director

Richard is King, ordained by God to lead his people. But he is also a man of very human weakness. A man whose vanity threatens to divide the great houses of England and drag his people into a dynastic civil war that will last 100 years. David Tennant gives a bravado performance of a multi-layered, complex and intelligent medieval king in Shakespeare’s masterful history play. Gregory Doran’s production is superbly orchestrated. This is a lucid, moving production packed with tremendous performances. From Michael Pennington’s John of Gaunt, the last great Englishman, to Oliver Ford Davies’ wonderfully bewildered Duke of York.

Jack McCracken: a man of principle in a corrupt world. But not for long. Moments after taking over his father-in-law’s business he’s approached by a private detective armed with some compromising information. Jack’s integrity fades away as he discovers his extended family to be thieves and adulterers, looting the business from their suburban homes. Rampant self-interest takes over and comic hysteria builds to a macabre climax.
