FOOD ON FILM: RAISE THE RED LANTERN

Thurs. Feb.18th at 6pm, $15.00 THIS SHOW IS SOLD OUT BUY TICKETS HERE FOR THE NEXT FOOD ON FILM 3/10

This season's theme: TABLE MANNERS: Recipes for Polite Society. Explore the confines of class and the balance of personal freedoms in the midst of tight family and social structures, often served before the entrée at dinner. Each film has a different recipe for power and passion as the protagonists hunger for transformation and acceptance.Tonight's show: RAISE THE RED LANTERN (Orion Classics, 1991) Directed by Yimou Zhang In Mandarin with English subtitles. A rich and disturbing story set in China in the 1920s that follows the four wives of a wealthy merchant, each of whom tries to claim personal agency, sexual attention, and love despite their deeply misogynist and oppressive culture. As Ellen J. Fried points out in her essay in Reel Food (Routledge, 2004), it's the customs and rituals related to food that prove the women's greatest source of social control and manipulation within their domestic situation, from the quality of the meals they prepare to the dining rules they set. Such power, however, comes at a price...

OUTERMOST CONTRA DANCE

Fri. Feb. 19th, 7:30pm • $10 suggested donation

The Outermost Contra dance happens on the third Friday of each month, and in different locations on the Outer Cape. There is a community potluck beforehand at 6:30, with the dance starting at 7:30. Guest musicians TBA. What is contradance? Contra dancing is the old time dance of New England, danced to the exuberant reels and jigs from the traditional repertoires of the British Isles, Canada and America. Contra dancing is social interaction set to music, meeting people, and making new friends. A caller, working with a group of live musicians, guides new and experienced dancers alike through a variety of dances. No need to bring a partner, but bring friends and family! All dances are taught, and if you can walk you can dance! Or you can just come to listen. People of all ages and lifestyles, including children, are welcome. Our dance is supported by a small grant from the Country Dance and Song Society and by donations.

INDIE DOC SERIES: I AM WHAT I PLAY

Thurs. 3/3 at 5pm & Fri. 3/4 at 7pm, $10.00 BUY TICKETS HERE

From the 1960s to the 1980s, the rock radio DJ played an unprecedented creative role in the rock music world. The new feature-length documentary I Am What I Play focuses on four well-known North American radio disc jockeys during the heyday of rock radio, when many disc jockeys were given great freedom on the air, had celebrity status, and had a direct connection to the biggest names in rock and roll. As radio became more commercially controlled and new media took hold, these DJ’s had to carve out a new career space for themselves. Has free-form radio died, or has it reinvented itself in unexpected spaces? I Am What I Play combines material shot on location in the 4 cities (Seattle, Boston, New York and Toronto) with rarely seen archival footage of the disc jockeys, the radio stations and well-known rock performers, all complemented by a soundtrack that features many great rock songs of the era.
