thekillingjokeClaire Shaffer ’18 writes:

In no Batman story is the thinness of the line between him and the Joker more visible than in the Killing Joke. It is in this disturbing, brilliant tale that Batman and the Joker finally meet, not as mere adversaries, but as agents of Order and Chaos.

Film Series: Marshland (La Isla Mínima)

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).

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

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.

Hours: Tuesday-Sunday, Noon-4pm
Closed: Saturday, October 24 through Wednesday, October 28; and Tuesday, November 24 through Tuesday, December 1, 2015.
