Film | Sorrow Even Up in Heaven (1965): Korean Classic (virtual)


Lee, Yun-bok in his fourth grade lives in a poor family. His father is indulged in gambling, and his mother, who can no longer tolerate the cruelty of her husband, leaves home. Yet, Yun-bok comforts his younger brothers, makes a poor living by shining shoes, and keeps his journal everyday. At last, his journal is made known to the public thanks to his teacher. This turn of events makes him overcome poverty, his gambling father repents his past wholeheartedly, and his mother returns home. Directed by Kim Soo-yong.

Classical Music | Copland's Piano Quartet: Rare Performance of the Stunning Work (virtual)


Aaron Copland's haunting Quartet for Piano and Strings is a major work written at the height of the iconic composer's career. Having already, by age 50, composed so many popular works that made his name widely recognized, the always-adventurous Copland turned to the gestures, techniques, and sound world of a darker, brooding Viennese Expressionism, and re-purposed them into a rich, refined, and lyrical idiom for this masterful Piano Quartet. And yet, the piece remains infrequently heard, and most listeners and even many veteran performers barely know of its existence. Performers: Danielle Farina, violist; Pala Garcia, violinist; Alexis Pia Gerlach, cellist; Michael Boriskin, pianist.

Book Discussion | The New American Farmer: Author Discusses Her Book (virtual)


In her new book, The New American Farmer, Dr. Laura-Anne Minkoff-Zern explores the experiences of Latino/a immigrant farmers as they transition from farmworkers to farm owners, offering a new perspective on racial inequity and sustainable farming. She finds that many of these new farmers rely on farming practices from their home countries--including growing multiple crops simultaneously, using integrated pest management, maintaining small-scale production, and employing family labor--most of which are considered alternative farming techniques in the United States. Minkoff-Zern describes the social, economic, and political barriers immigrant farmers must overcome, from navigating USDA bureaucracy to racialized exclusion from opportunities. She argues that, despite a range of challenges, they are actively and substantially contributing to the movement for an ecological and sustainable food system.

Samuel is the founder of AmeriCulture, a consultancy dedicated to transforming the cultural landscape into business opportunities. He is the author of numerous books on American history, American culture, and psychology.
