2014. Spain. Dir: Alberto Rodríguez. With Raúl Arévalo, Javier Gutiérrez. 105 min.
A mismatched pair of cops investigate a series of disappearances and murders in the marshy hinterlands. If that sounds a little bit like (the good season of) True Detective, you’re not far off. Tense and twisty with a strong, noirish sense of place, Marshland cleaned up at the Goyas (the Spanish Oscars).
Vocalist and Adjunct Assistant Professor of Music B. Balasubrahmaniyan is joined by Adjunct Assistant Professor of Music David Nelson on mridangam and violinist K.V.S. Vinay as part of the 39th annual Navaratri Festival.
Date: Friday, October 9 Time: 8-9:30PM Place: Crowell Concert Hall

Some info first about an opening reception from the CFA:
Tripod Complex features monumental scrolls by Ian Boyden ’95 that are his meditation on the remains of ancient trees after a forest fire in Washington state.
Date: Wednesday, September 30 Time: 12-1:30 PM Place: College of East Asian Studies Gallery at Mansfield Freeman Center, 343 Washington Terrace CFA event link
And now, here are the details for the entire CEAS exhibition:
“Tripod Complex” features monumental scrolls by Ian Boyden ’95, a meditation on the remains of ancient trees after a fire in Okanogan National Forest in Washington state. When he first saw the still-standing charcoal spires, he said “It had become ink … this catastrophic Chinese landscape painting.” He was “transfixed by the musculature of the trees revealed and shaped by fire. They had drawn themselves on the sky.” He saw a transformation of self, and an insight into the Buddhist doctrine of no self.
