Film Series: “Blood of a Poet”

1930. France. Dir: Jean Cocteau. With Enrique Rivero, Elizabeth Lee Miller. 55 min.

Cocteau’s loose, surrealistic adaptation of the Orpheus myth meditates on the source of creativity and its inextricable link to destruction. This landmark of avant-garde filmmaking takes the form of a cinematic poem, invoking haunting imagery that continues to resonate with the passing of time. With the anarchic Daffy Duck cartoon “Duck Amuck” – because why not?

DATE: Tonight, September 18th
PLACE: CFS, Goldsmith Family Cinema

Husk Auditions

From Anthony Smith ’11:

HUSK is a new play, written and directed by Anthony Smith ’11

The decidedly typical small town of Husking, Indiana enjoys a quiet, church-going, diner-filled existence. That is, until a hitchhiker, identity unknown and unimportant, is raped and murdered within the city limits. Attempting to solve the case are Barb, a widowed detective; Darling, the busybody head of the PTA; her husband Bob, a disgraced former deputy; and finally, the town Sheriff, who is doing everything but getting to the bottom of things. Their only suspect is an innocent man: the town pariah, a brilliant teacher from Westchester, who was forced into retirement by the PTA following his attempted suicide. And they all will stop at nothing to prove his guilt, even at the expense of their own innocence.
