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

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.

FilmWorks Forum: Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman

FilmWorks Forum: Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman

A Discovery Channel Documentary
Sunday, July 23 – 11AM

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.
