Film Series: North By Northwest

1959. USA. Dir: Alfred Hitchcock. With Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint. 136 min.

 

One moment Grant’s an unsuspecting ad man; the next he’s fleeing cinema’s most famous crop duster and dangling off of Mount Rushmore. The apotheosis of Hitch’s “innocent man on the run” pictures is justly beloved for iconic suspense setpieces, yet it also boasts a tight script crackling with wit and innuendo.

Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / $5

CypherLeague: Culture is Yours to Create – D.i.Y. Workshop

0000969693_10From David Stouck ’15:

What is Cypherleague?
Cypher League is a multi-platform cooperative that facilitates artistic collaboration among the creative, independent, and inquisitive. We are plugged into the most diverse artistic community there is, the hip hop community. In our opinion, Hip Hop is the most advanced form of artistic self-expression. That’s because it is not a single form of self-expression, but rather an eclectic mash-up of many. Based in Brooklyn, NY, our team will be coming to Wesleyan’s campus this week to participate in the R.A.W. Cypher, share our thoughts on founding an independent artistic collective at our D.i.Y. workshop, and perform at Earth House on Friday night!
