Film Series: Taipei Story

1985. Taiwan. Dir: Edward Yang. With Hou Hsiao-Hsien, Tsai Chin. 110 min.

The late Yang (Yi Yi, A Brighter Summer Day) directed fellow filmmaker Hou as one half of a young couple navigating the pushes and pulls of the Taiwanese capital’s growing pains. A new restoration elevates this quiet but powerful reflection on the modern Asian city and the allure of the American dream.

Trash Dance Screening

Gretchen LaMotte ’18 writes in:

Ever seen garbage trucks dance?

Come to a free screening of “Trash Dance” this Wednesday at 5pm and learn about the work of an artist at the forefront of using creative practice to increase civic engagement!

Choreographer Allison Orr finds beauty and grace in garbage trucks and in the unseen men and women who pick up our trash. In the documentary “Trash Dance,” Filmmaker Andrew Garrison follows Orr as she rides along with Austin sanitation workers on their daily routes to observe and later convince them to perform a most unlikely spectacle.

Allison will be there to answer questions after the film. And there will be FOOD!

Date: TODAY, September 13
Time: 5-7PM

Opening Reception and Gallery Talk “Sasha Rudensky—Acts and Illusions”

From the CFA:

For more than a decade, Assistant Professor of Art Sasha Rudensky has repeatedly returned to Russia and the post-Soviet territories with her camera. Her photographs track a lost generation that has come of age during the Vladimir Putin era. The exhibition “Sasha Rudensky—Acts and Illusions” highlights 25 of her meticulously observed and constructed images, which present an unsettling view into contemporary life in the New East. There will be a Gallery Talk by Assistant Professor of Art Sasha Rudensky at 5:30pm.

Date: TODAY, September 13
Time: 5PM
Place: Davison Art Center
