Film Series: Blood Simple

1985. USA. Dir: Joel & Ethan Coen. With Frances McDormand. 99 min.

The Coens’ magnetic debut feature begins in Texas, where a single thought sparks a flood of violence. When a loutish bar owner hires an unsavory private eye to murder his wife and her lover, double-crosses and death cause matters to spiral. Set in a haunting, lurid world lit by neon signs and jukeboxes, this heart-pounding thriller defines neo-noir.

Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / Free

Why Collaborate?—Why Fukushima? Dance, Photography, History

A cool presentation happening tomorrow:

In this presentation, Visiting Artist in Dance and the College of East Asian Studies Eiko Otake and Professor of History, East Asian Studies, Science in Society, and Environmental Studies William Johnston will show images from their third visit to Fukushima in August 2016, five years after the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear meltdowns of March 2011. They will discuss how they have collaborated in the conceptualization, execution, curation, and presentation of the resulting images as installations that include both prints and videos. The images at the core of this generative process act not only in capturing the residue of the performances but also as part of the generative process that informs subsequent dimensions of this ongoing project.

The exhibition “A Body in Fukushima” was on display in the Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery from February through May 2015.

Date: Thursday, November 17th
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Place: Ring Family Performing Arts Hall (former CFA Hall)

Post-Election Climate Dialogue

hriixqmThis really cool event is happening TODAY:

In the wake of the recent election, Climate Ambassadors and the Outhouse are hosting an open forum to discuss future directions in a political situation where federal climate legislation is likely to become stagnant. This forum is a platform to discuss potential initiatives and collaborations to develop a network of individuals interested in encouraging environmentally responsible behavior despite changes in leadership in the federal government.

We welcome any contributions and insights that folks may have on environmental activism, whether it be from personal experience, academic study or other means. This forum is open to all members of the Wesleyan and Middletown community. Here is the Facebook event.

Time: 6:30-8PM
Place: Exley 150 (Tischler Hall)
