In 1799, a prosperous New York merchant named Archibald Gracie built a country house overlooking a bend in the East River, five miles north of the then-New York City limits. Little did he know that, more than 200 years later, his home would be serving as the official residence of the First Family of New York City - a place where history is made, not merely recorded. As a historic house museum run by the Parks Department, sitting on 11 acres of grounds now known as Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion has served as the home of 10 mayors, beginning first with Mayor Fiorello H. La Guardia in 1942. Today, Gracie Mansion is occupied by the de Blasio family, which has opened its doors in the spirit of the administration's motto: one city, rising together. In keeping with that theme, Mayor de Blasio and First Lady Chirlane McCray have introduced a new art installation, titled “Windows on the City: Looking Out at Gracie’s New York.” Tours take place at 10am, 11am, 2pm, and 3pm.

Discussion |
Vladimir Putin is expected be to get a new six-year term in Russia's presidential elections on March 18. What will he do next? This next term as president is supposed to be Putin's last, given constitutional term limits. Will he change the constitution, step down, or find some other means of retaining power? Even as Putin faces this political dilemma, he must also address Russia's stagnant economy, still dependent on oil exports and under harsh Western sanctions. Russia's economy is growing slower than rivals such as the U.S. and Europe, falling further behind the West in economic terms. Can the Kremlin fix its economy? Will Putin's new term as president lead to policies that revitalize Russia, or is the country stuck with many more years of economic stagnation and political repression? Panel discussion with: -- Sarah Sokhey, Assistant Professor of Political Science, University of Colorado, Boulder, and author of the paper "Social Spending and Putin's Popularity" -- Yuval Weber, Global Fellow, The Wilson Center, and author of the paper "Russia's Debate about Economic Growth" -- Chris Miller, Assistant Professor of International History, Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and Eurasia Research Director, Foreign Policy Research Institute

As the rain pours down and the water keeps rising, a mother sits in a flooded basement, weeping. After her son is gunned down by police, Mary, a woman with a cracked past, finds herself paralyzed with grief. So her mother, sister, and daughter try to uplift and help her wade through the water, as she mourns. But when her tears begin to overflow, deep family secrets rise all around them. And once their painful past floats to the top, there's no telling who's going to drown. Written by Donja R. Love Directed by Saheem Ali

Life and Debt takes as its subject Jamaica's economic decline in the 20th century. The story has reverberations in the plight of other third-world nations blindsided by globalization, like Ghana and Haiti. After England granted Jamaica independence in 1962, the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) stepped in with a series of loans. These loans came with strings attached--the kind that would eventually plunge the country $7 billion into debt, stranded without the resources to dig themselves out. 80 min. Refreshments and a moderated discussion will follow the screening.

In 1980 in Rome, two film critics - Michele Mancini and Giuseppe Perrella - produced an elaborate, 600-page volume of images taken from Pasolini’s films and organized into an extensive taxonomy of “bodies” and “places”: Pier Paolo Pasolini: Corpi e luoghi. Reviews of the time praised it as “the most Pasolinian publication to date” (Alberto Farrasino); as “an indispensable tool for future research on Pasolini” (Tullio Kezich); and as “not just an illustrated book, but a unique model of critique” (Adriano Aprà). Long forgotten and out of print, Corpi e luoghi is now available again in a new, quasi-facsimile edition in English (which also includes the original Italian text). Tracing aspects of the book's original publication, the panel will discuss its artistic, cultural, and critical relevance today. Panelists: Ara Merjian (NYU) Ann Goldstein (The New Yorker) Breixo Viejo (Columbia University) Benedikt Reichenbach (editor, English edition of Pasolini's Bodies and Places)

Book Reading |
It’s widely accepted that art serves an important function in society. But the concept falls under such an absurdly large umbrella and can manifest in so many different ways. Art can be self indulgent, goofy, serious, altruistic, evil, or expressive, or any number of other things. But how can it truly make lasting, positive change? In Why Art?, acclaimed graphic novelist Eleanor Davis (How To Be Happy) unpacks some of these concepts in ways both critical and positive, in an attempt to illuminate the highest possible potential an artwork might hope to achieve. A work of art unto itself, Davis leavens her exploration with a sense of humor and a thirst for challenging preconceptions of art worthy of Magritte, drawing the reader in as a willing accomplice in her quest.

Heather Massie's one-woman play explores the life, inventions and person of Hedy Lamarr. Viennese-born Hollywood film star of the 1930s-1950s, and known as the most beautiful woman in the World, Hedy Lamarr stored away knowledge of munitions while married to arms dealer, Fritz Mandl. She employed this knowledge to support the US Navy's war effort during WWII by inventing The Secret Communication System to make torpedoes more accurate. Also referred to as Frequency Hopping or Spread Spectrum Technology, her invention is used today in cell phones, WiFi, CDMA, GPS, Bluetooth and a myriad of other wireless Systems.
