Book Discussion | Transcendental Style in Film: Ozu, Bresson, Dreyer


Acclaimed director and screenwriter Paul Schrader revisits and updates his contemplation of slow cinema over the past fifty years. Unlike the style of psychological realism, which dominates film, the transcendental style expresses a spiritual state by means of austere camerawork, acting devoid of self-consciousness, and editing that avoids editorial comment. This seminal text analyzes the film style of three great directors--Yasujiro Ozu, Robert Bresson, and Carl Dreyer--and posits a common dramatic language used by these artists from divergent cultures. The new edition updates Schrader's theoretical framework and extends his theory to the works of Andrei Tarkovsky (Russia), B?la Tarr (Hungary), Theo Angelopoulos (Greece), and Nuri Bilge Ceylan (Turkey), among others.

Book Discussion | Homes of the Past: A Lost Jewish Museum (online)


In 1940s New York, immigrant Jewish scholars sought to build a museum to commemorate their lost worlds and people. Among the Jews who arrived in the United States in the early 1940s were a small number of Polish scholars who had devoted their professional lives to the study of Europe's Yiddish-speaking Jews at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. Faced with the devastating knowledge that returning to their former homes and resuming their scholarly work there was no longer viable, they sought to address their profound sense of loss by continuing their work, under radically different circumstances, to document the European Jewish lives, places, and ways of living that were being destroyed. In pursuing this daunting agenda, they decided to create a museum to memorialize East European Jewry and educate American Jews about this legacy. YIVO scholars determinedly pursued this undertaking for several years, publicizing the initiative and collecting materials to exhibit. However, the Museum of the Homes of the Past was abandoned shortly after the war ended. Homes of the Past explores this largely unknown episode of modern Jewish history and museum history and demonstrates that the project, even though it was never realized, marked a critical inflection point in the dynamic interrelations between Jews in America and Eastern Europe. With author Jeffrey Shandler.

Talk | Israel's 7-Front War: Lebanon (online)


Examine the recent actions, regional ambitions, and strategic implications of Tehran's proxies and its threat to Israel. Tehran not only dominates four Arabic-speaking countries (Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen) but has reached new levels of aggression in the past half-year, starting with the Oct. 7 atrocity and followed by the bombing of Pakistan, impeding commerce in the Red Sea, and a drone and missile attack on Israel. Khamenei aspires to build a "Ring of Fire" around Israel, mobilizing seven territories working together to bring about Israel's destruction. How successful is this plan? Does the sum add up to more than the parts? How can Israel most effectively respond? Speaker: Robert Rabil

Screening | Green Streets (1989): documentary


Refuting the notion that the urban environment is inhospitable to organic life, this film documents a wide range of community gardens that have been established in each of New York City's five boroughs and which reflect the city's multicultural diversity. Carrying on the mission of the Urban Community Gardening Movement that sprang up informally in the 1970s, adult and young people alike have taken up spades and shovels to clear abandoned, rubble-strewn lots for flower and vegetable gardens. Cameras visit a "soul food garden," a penthouse arboretum, a playground erected from old tires, a circular garden designed by a modern-day "Adam" and "Eve," and a therapeutic rooftop retreat for recovering substance abusers. At the film's upbeat conclusion, urban tillers proudly display prizes won at the Annual Tenant Gardening Competition.

Book Discussion | Stan Mack’s Real Life Funnies: The Collected Conceits, Delusions, and Hijinks of New Yorkers from 1974 to 1995 (online)


Stan Mack discusses his new hilarious new book. From 1974 to 1995, New Yorkers starred in their own comic strip in the weekly pages of the city’s trailblazing alternative newsweekly, The Village Voice. Stan Mack’s “Real Life Funnies” chronicled the every day, the extraordinary, and the downright outlandish lives of New Yorkers, capturing their sardonic humor, sexual shenanigans, and exotic obsessions. Every story was told entirely in the subjects’ own words. And New Yorkers ate it up. For the first time, a significant collection of those comic strips has been included in one volume. With a foreword by Jake Tapper and an afterword by Jeannette Walls, this collection will be treasured not only by the strip’s devoted followers and comics fans, but everyone fascinated by this revolutionary period in the life of the World’s Greatest City.

Book Club | Graphic Novel Book Club: The Secret to Superhuman Strength by Alison Bechdel 


From the author of Fun Home, a profoundly affecting graphic memoir of Bechdel's lifelong love affair with exercise, set against a hilarious chronicle of fitness fads in our times. Readers will see their athletic or semi-active pasts flash before their eyes through an ever-evolving panoply of running shoes, bicycles, skis, and sundry other gear. But the more Bechdel tries to improve herself, the more her self appears to be the thing in her way.

Performance | Past, Present, Present, Past: Performance Art


Artist Gernot Wieland will perform an adapted version of his 2019 lecture-performance, Past, Present, Present, Past. Following his performance, Wieland will be joined on stage by Nuar Alsadir, a poet and practicing psychoanalyst. Some audience participation may occur.  Gernot Wieland’s diagrams illustrate some of the basic concepts of his lecture-performance Past, Present, Present, Past. Wieland examines the Austrian predilection for culinary delights and easy living as an expression of repressed feelings of guilt, hate, and powerlessness. One of his heroes is the prophet Jonah. In Wieland’s lecture, Jonah appears as a Monty Pythonesque figure, ridiculous through and through. In many ways, he resembles a child oppressed by his mother and father who might become a serial killer out of frustration, as the first diagram shows. The second diagram elaborates this basic structure into a broader field of repression—sequences which generate the desires and symbolisms that define reality.

Performance | Beyond Ken Dryden: One-Man Show


Written by Oren Safdie and starring Max Katz, this is a solo show about a boy’s idolization of his sports hero Ken Dryden and the Montreal Canadiens as his own family and the province of Quebec are coming apart. The 1970s were a wonderful though tumultuous time to be growing up in Montréal. The rise of Separatism and the coming to power of the Parti Québécois led to thousands of Montrealers migrating south on the 401 to Toronto; Jean Drapeau’s Olympics in 1976 nearly bankrupted the city; and the era of disco, free-love and counter-culture revolutions, combined with more women entering the workforce and easier access to divorce, challenged the traditional family like never before. For Safdie, the decade saw his parents break up and get back together again half a dozen times before parting ways for good. Through it all, Ken Dryden and the Montreal Canadiens remained steadfast in his life; connecting the city and lifting his and everyone’s spirits by winning six Stanley Cups in nine years.
