Gina Gao will teach you about the mythology of the holiday, how people prepare for the New Year, and the origins of traditions like the red envelopes (hóngbāo) and the Lantern Festival (Yuánxiāo jié). You will also learn about New Year traditions unique to Gina’s hometown of Wuhan, and look at the evolution of celebrations in New York City’s Chinese communities. Though public celebrations are subdued due to the pandemic, the presentation will also go live to Flushing, Queens to see how the community is marking the holiday.

Discussion | News of the World (2020): Director in Conversation (virtual)


Filmmaker Paul Greengrass discusses his latest film, a post Civil War western starring Tom Hanks. Five years after the end of the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Tom Hanks), a widower and veteran of three wars, now moves from town to town as a non-fiction storyteller. In the plains of Texas, he crosses paths with Cicada, aka Johanna Leonberger (Helena Zengel), a 10-year-old taken in by the Kiowa tribe six years earlier who is being returned to her biological aunt and uncle against her will. Kidd reluctantly agrees to deliver the child where the law says she belongs. As they travel hundreds of miles into the unforgiving wilderness, the two will face tremendous challenges of both human and natural forces as they search for a place that either can call home.

Theater | Franz Kafka's Letter to My Father (virtual)


In 1919, an ailing Franz Kafka wrote a letter to his father. In it he put his anger, his fear, his guilt, his loneliness, his ingratitude, his debt, his despair, his joy, his pride, his confusion, his laughter, his hate, his memory, his shame, his tears, his disgust at everything his father represented and his profound hope that he might one day measure up to such a remarkable man. The letter never reached its destination. Now, live from quarantine, you are invited to a curious event -- part YouTube meltdown, part hidden-camera show, part seance -- as M-34 Productions attempts to deliver it at last. Directed by James Rutherford, and performed by Michael Guagno.

A brash, divorced New York Jew, former Communist and recent Christian convert bursts into the famed writer's sedate bachelor world.
