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.

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
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.

SPECIAL DOCUMENTARY FILM SCREENING Drugs, Guns, Redemption & Edward Snowden: Stories from Young Filmmakers Exploring the Drug Culture, Gun Violence, Sexual Assault and NSA Surveillance.
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
Saturday 8/30: 5:00 – 7:00pm

Five million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and dementia — many of them alone in nursing homes. A man with a simple idea discovers that songs embedded deep in memory can ease pain and awaken these fading minds. Joy and life are resuscitated, and our cultural fears over aging are confronted. Dan Cohen, founder of the nonprofit organization Music & Memory, fights against a broken healthcare system to demonstrate music’s ability to combat memory loss and restore a deep sense of self to those suffering from it.

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.

Exhibition: Great Art on Screen THE IMPRESSIONISTS
1 Hr. 30 Mins.
Tuesday July 14 – 7:00 p.m.
From Various World Collections
They are the world’s most popular artists. The works of Cezanne, Monet, Degas and their compatriots fetch tens of millions of dollars. But just who were they really? Why and how did they paint? What lies behind their enduring appeal? To help answer these questions, Fathom Events has secured unique access to a major new exhibition focusing on the 19th century Parisian art collector Paul Durand-Ruel, the outspoken champion of Impressionism. This eagerly anticipated exhibition is perhaps the most comprehensive ever held about the Impressionists. Duran-Ruel’s brave decision to exhibit the Impressionists in New York in 1886 introduced enlightened, wealthy Americans to modern French painting.
Fathom Events’ 2015 Exhibition OnScreen Series is a series of cinema events showcasing the world’s greatest art collections and blockbuster exhibitions. Exhibition OnScreen offers audiences around the world a private, guided tour of these exhibitions and the opportunity to immerse themselves in art in vibrant HD. In addition to the actual exhibitions they include interviews with art experts, behind the scenes access, collaborations with other artists and biographical features.

BAFTA winner and Academy Award® nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) takes the title role in this dynamic new production of one of English drama’s oldest plays, directed by the National Theatre’s new Director Rufus Norris (Broken, London Road).
Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to abandon the life he has built and embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence. But Death is close behind, and time is running out.
One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, it now explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos.

Summer Exhibition: Diane Love: Explorations in Art
July 11 – October 8
Saturday, July 11 – 5-7pm
All are welcome
The M Studio Gallery’s summer exhibition features a survey of the work of creative polymath, artist Diane Love. Each group of works in the exhibition has a thread that Diane feels represents the continuum in her aesthetic sensibility. And while the medium and subjects vary this through line is evident from her earliest canvases to her current photographic work. It is her belief that all artists have their own particular vocabulary of color, form and arrangement which are always evident. She will be giving gallery talks to explain the threads that connect her work [dates to be announced here shortly].
This exhibition presents a unique opportunity to see, first-hand, the creative progression of Love’s work, from oils and watercolors to photography, over the course of her career to date. Each group of works in the exhibition has a distinct individual sensibility that reflects Love’s creative direction at the time, yet when viewed as a body of work, the groups relate to one another, and communicate the artist’s overarching personal aesthetic.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions—Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

Director: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is the uniquely funny, moving story of Greg (Thomas Mann), a high school senior who is trying to blend in anonymously, avoiding deeper relationships as a survival strategy for navigating the social minefield that is teenage life. He even describes his constant companion Earl (RJ Cyler), with whom he makes short film parodies of classic movies, as more of a ‘co-worker’ than a best friend. But when Greg’s mom (Connie Britton) insists he spend time with Rachel (Olivia Cooke) — a girl in his class who has just been diagnosed with cancer — he slowly discovers how worthwhile the true bonds of friendship can be.

Locked away from society in an apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Angulo brothers learn about the outside world through the films that they watch. Nicknamed the Wolfpack, the brothers spend their childhood re-enacting their favorite films using elaborate homemade props and costumes. With no friends and living on welfare, they feed their curiosity, creativity, and imagination with film, which allows them to escape from their feelings of isolation and loneliness. Everything changes when one of the brothers escapes, and the power dynamics in the house are transformed. The Wolfpack must learn how to integrate into society without disbanding the brotherhood. .
