Fleet Movement Explorations

Sunday, April 26th, 2015 3:00 pm
Drop in dance workshop, by donation
Fleet Movement Explorations is an experimental dance class in which we explore, among other things, developmental movement patterns while sensing ourselves in space, weight, time, and the three dimensions. This is extended to explore the articulation of movement initiations and refinement of body alignments. We play with evoking movement though qualities of feeling, shape, force, idea, word and more. From this basis, we work out interactive improvisational skits. The class is basically informal, challenging, and fun, and a good movement workout. It plays spontaneously with forces, shapes, images, and ideas rather than specific dance technique. At times we will have guest teachers. All are welcome. Lead by Becky Burrill—dancer-choreographer, developmental-creative arts educator, writer, visual artist.

The range of work, from traditional to more edgy creations, and the variety of the mediums (oil, acrylic, watercolor, drawings, prints and photography) displays a rich diversity of styles.

Food On Film presents: ORLANDO

Thursday, April 30th, 2015 6:00 pm
$15
BUY TICKETS HERE Heartburn: Recipes for Transformation Presented by Wellfleet Preservation Hall & Lola's Local Food Lab The 3rd season of Food on Film celebrates and savors the passions of the kitchen, mirrored in the dreams and desires of strong-willed women in their search for authenticity in taste and in truth. Each has a different recipe for transforming their lives, as we discover what it means to nourish, to feast, and to be hungry. Orlando, 1992, directed by Sally Potter. Based on the novel by Virginia Wolff. Young nobleman Orlando (Tilda Swinton) is commanded to retain the “bloom of youth” by Queen Elizabeth I (Quentin Crisp). This epic search for love, poetry and the meaning of life spirals inward and outward, or over four hundred years and is a karmic reckoning of gender roles through a lens both historical and philosophical. While not a film about food, the act and art of dining and discussion are a delicious morsel in this dazzling, daring, feast for the senses. Small plate menu TBA!

Cape Cod Festival of Arab & Middle Eastern Cinema

Saturday, May 2nd, 2015 4:30 pm
$15.00
BUY TICKETS HERE   VISIT THE FESTIVAL WEBSITE HERE Double Feature Presentation:   From Iran, A Separation (Az Iran, Yek Jodaee)by Azadeh Mousavi and Kourosh Ataei (52 min, 2013, Iran/France) In the morning of 27 March 2012, the Iranian movie A Separation won the Oscar Award for the Best Foreign Language Film. For the Iranian people who were impatiently glued to their TV screens, this was more than a cinematic award. When sanctions and threats of war with Iran covered the world headlines, Asghar Farhadi talked about Iran’s love for peace and Iranians felt that their voice was heard through someone other than the government officials. This documentary depicts the importance and the difference of receiving an Oscar award for “A Separation” for the Iranians and has a general view on Iran’s society of today.   WATCH THE TRAILER HERE     A Dress Rehearsal for an Execution by Bahman Tavoosi (60 min, 2013, Canada)Since the Pulitzer Prize for journalism was established nearly a hundred years ago, only one winning photograph has ever had an anonymous creator. In 2006, after nearly three decades of fearing for his life, Jahangir Razmi at last revealed his identity as the photographer of the 1979 prize-winning picture of an execution in post-revolution Iran. The story of the photo alone would make a fascinating documentary, but Montreal-based director and visual artist Bahman Tavoosi’s film is much more than an historical retelling of facts. Tavoosi records his process of restaging the photograph and meticulously seeks out a suitable location and cast. The source material becomes a muse, and a dramatic history is exposed and developed like a negative. Tavoosi dissects the role of documentary photography as art form and social commentary while questioning and highlighting creative licence and political history in this ambitious, cinematic and riveting piece of filmmaking.   WATCH THE TRAILER HERE   Iranian-Canadian filmmaker Bahman Tavoosi (Dress Rehearsal for an Execution) will join us via Skype to discuss his film after the screening. The Cape Cod Festival of Arab & Middle Eastern Cinema is co-sponsored by CapeCodFilmSociety.com, Cape Cinema, and the Cape Cod Museum of Art. The Wellfleet screenings are supported in part by a grant from the Wellfleet Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Cape Cod Festival of Arab & Middle Eastern Cinema

Saturday, May 2nd, 2015 7:30 pm
$15.00
BUY TICKETS HERE VISIT THE FESTIVAL WEBSITE HERE Mars at Sunrise by Jessica Habie (75 min, 2013, Palestine/Canada/USA)Mars At Sunrise tells the story of a war waged on imagination. The film abstractly portrays the conflict between artists on either side of Israel’s militarized borders, and explores how a powerful creative mind survives, and even thrives, under pressure. When Azzadeh, a young Jewish American poet, travels to Israel to see the land and people she has only ever heard about through the voices of others she uncovers stories of Israeli soldiers who reflect on the complexity of their military service; Palestinian families who are displaced and wedged between walls; and artists from both cultures who strive to paint a picture of life surrounded by conflict. While waiting at a checkpoint in Jenin, Azzadeh meets Khaled, a Palestinian painter forced from his home in East Jerusalem. Azzadeh accepts a ride from the handsome stranger, whose life story she soon bears witness to as the two come face to face with Eyal, the young officer who once interrogated Khaled, at the next checkpoint. Khaled tells Azzadeh the story of his arrest and torture when he refused to collaborate with Israeli Intelligence. Under the duress of solitary confinement, Khaled must use the muscles of his creative imagination to remain free despite the imprisonment of his physical being. As he struggles, Khaled awakens a wave of jealousy, creativity and chaos in Eyal, himself a frustrated artist. But through this painter’s resistance, courage and spirit, we learn that an artist can never be imprisoned. WATCH THE TRAILER HERE There will be a post-screening discussion of the film with Nitin Sawhney, Assistant Professor of Media Studies at The New School. Prof. Sawhney has worked withe Palestinian youth in Gaza, both teaching media literacy skills and making his film Flying Paper. Preceded by the following short films from the Arab diaspora: 1991 by Adbul Almutairi (5 min, 2014, USA); Dirty Laundry Day by Jamil Lahham (6 min, 2014, USA); and Eastern Winds by Timo von Gunten & Jawaher Al Sudairy(10 min., 2014, Saudi Arabia/USA).
