Film Series: Gomorra

2008. Italy. Dir: Matteo Garrone. With Gianfelice Imparato. 137 min.

 

When the kids are laughing about how their misadventures remind them of Scarface, you’ve got a gang problem. This tough, Scorsese-approved mob saga shatters the glossy image of organized crime and reveals the very real devils at work just under the museums and churches of Napoli. The movie’s source novel ruffled so many Mafia feathers, its author is still under police protection. Sponsored by the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures.

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

This documentary style play, written by Jen Marlowe, is about Aseel Asleh, a 17 year old Palestinian citizen of Israel killed by police in October 2000. Based on interviews and primary sources collected over 14 years, the play offers a uniquely personal lens for understanding inequality as the root of state violence and impunity. In its debut performance at SJC, it aims to create conversations with audiences across the United States to build solidarity across universal struggles for liberation and equality.

This production of the play is touring Universities and Colleges. It is done in partnership with donkeysaddle projects, Adalah, 50 Shades of Black, Students for Justice in Palestine, The US campaign to end the Israeli Occupation, Jewish Voice for Peace and Code Pink.

Light of the East—The Beauty of Movement in Silence

PSA from the College of East Asian Studies:

Prominent Korean digital artists Youngho Kim and Jisong Lee examine
the “beauty of movement in silence” through photography and video in
their first exhibition outside Korea. Both artists build on their long
careers in fashion and commercial work to create works that examine
the core principals hiding behind what we see, and provide an opening
to re-explore, in a contemporary light, the topic of whether the world
that we are living in is a dream.
