Film Series: “Fargo”

1996. USA. Dir: Joel Coen. With Frances McDormand, William H. Macy. 98 min.

Amidst the snowy landscape and funny-sounding accents, a pregnant policewoman slowly uncovers a haphazard murder plot as her bumbling suspect struggles to protect his ill-conceived crime. This blood-soaked comedy of errors – chock-full of that delightfully ominous Coens quirk – will make you never want to look at a woodchipper again.

DATE: Tonight, September 29
TIME: 8PM
PLACE: CFS, Goldsmith Family Cinema
$5

“Cheat” Auditions – Senior Thesis Film

From Ameen Beydoun ’11:

A poor high-school student resorts to illegal activity to make enough money to go to college. What did he do? How did he do it?

ROLES:
Omar – Male, 17-19. A highly-intelligent high school student with hope and lots of ambition. Self-conscious but still cool in a slightly nerdy way.

Jonny – Male 17-19. Street smart student. Deals drugs and always finds the easiest way of getting what he wants. Lively, urban, and basically a total G.

Max – Male 17-19. Best friends with Omar. Very nerdy but not too intelligent, despite all his studying.

Prepare a monologue and expect to do a cold reading.

Contact abeydoun(at)wesleyan(dot)edu for questions or conflicts.

Date: Oct. 3 – Oct. 3
Time: 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Place: Fayerweather 106

Come to the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange’s performance of Drift!

This Friday The Liz Lerman Dance Exchange will perform Drift.

Farmland becomes a strip mall. Time passes. Businesses move out and a church takes over. The corn field that yielded to a supermarket is now a church sanctuary- complete with automatic doors. By turns comic, provocative, and wistful, Drift moves forward and backward in time. What happens when land changes hands? What becomes of people and their jobs? Where does our food come from? And what are California peaches doing in Georgia? The Liz Lerman Dance Exchange returns with a new work by company member Cassie Meador. The company is known for creating groundbreaking dance works that make meaningful connections between people and art and are performed by a multi-generational company.
