Joe Guerriero: Waiting for Normal: Cuba and the United States
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free, but reservations required
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

People feel an undeniable attraction to Cuba after visiting even once. It's mostly about the people— their warmth and friendliness, their art, music and culture. However, it is almost impossible to photograph or create art in Cuba without capturing the effects of the embargo. Photographer Joe Guerriero's photography and film work does just that, reflecting more than 20 years of spending time with the Cuban people and experiencing first hand the effects of the United States' continuing embargo of the island. He shows how the embargo affects the lives not only of Cubans but of those Cuban-Americans who still have relatives in Cuba.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019

NOTE: Face masks required of all visitors, staff, and volunteers at all times. Fridays and Saturdays 10:00 am-12:00 pm are reserved for Everson members and high-risk individuals.

Any time, November 1



It Can’t Happen Here
Syracuse Stage
Lisa Peterson, director

Price: Free
Online


Syracuse Stage partners with more than 75 theaters across the country to broadcast a radio adaption of Sinclair Lewis's 1930s politically charged novel It Can't Happen Here. Produced by the Berkeley Repertory Theatre, the show stars Oscar nominated actor David Strathairn. Also in the cast is Greta Oglesby, who starred in Syracuse Stage's production of Caroline, or Change.

Written in 1935 during the rise of fascism in Europe, Lewis's darkly satirical It Can't Happen Here follows the ascent of a demagogue who becomes president of the United States by promising to return the country to greatness. The new stage adaptation, which premiered at the Berkeley Repertory Theater in 2016, closed just one week before the presidential election roiled our nation. Now, Berkeley Rep reprises that production, but this time Syracuse Stage along with theaters across the country will be joining to broadcast this production as a radio play. The broadcast is intended to encourage participation in the upcoming election.

Fabiola Jean-Louis: Rewriting History
Point of Contact Gallery

Price: Free; appointment required
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

Regarding Jean-Louis' exhibition, "Rewriting History," the HuffPost found that the "Victorian era dresses, fashioned almost entirely from paper, become actors in a photographic essay that challenges history, reality, and time. Visual, sculptural and performative at once, the work reels viewers into an alternate realm; one that heroically re-examines the past and thrusts the majesty of African ancestors — real and imagined — to the fore. Each image has its factual, historical connection and a narrative remixed via Fabiola's multi-dimensional lens. The dresses, and their environments, are imbued with vestiges of fantasy and futurism, creating impressions that are otherworldly, palpable, and highly persuasive."

Ekstase is a montage of scenes from various European silent films. Based on similar settings and gestures it explores the stereotype of women on the verge of insanity. Reaching its peak in an eruption of hysteria the film displays the women as captives in a continuous cycle of symptoms, diagnosis and treatment.

Unlocking Doors of Cinema (directed by Nezar Andary, 61 minutes, United Arab Republic)
Unlocking Doors of Cinema is a feature documentary exploring the 50 years of artistic contribution of the daring Syrian auteur Muhammad Malas. Malas, an exile from his home town of Quneitra, provokes audiences to contemplate loss, memory, and home. From the 1967 war and Palestinian camps in Beirut, to the songs of Aleppo and the political tragedies of Syria, Malas exemplifies what it means to be an auteur and public intellectual. Unlocking Doors of Cinema takes you on a unique cinematic journey where creative cinematography becomes a visual conversation with the auteur's own five decades of work.

A Legacy of Firsts: The Everson Collects
Everson Museum of Art

Everson Museum of Art
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

In 1911, the Syracuse Museum of Fine Arts (known today as the Everson) made history as the first museum in the country to declare that it would focus on collecting works made by American artists. This decision, implemented by Museum Director Fernando Carter, was the first of many made by directors that ultimately defined the Everson's collection as it exists today. This exhibition examines over one hundred years of the Museum's collecting priorities, from the Museum's earliest acquisitions in 1911 to work acquired in 2019

Joe Guerriero: Waiting for Normal: Cuba and the United States
ArtRage Gallery

Price: Free, but reservations required
ArtRage Gallery
505 Hawley Ave., Syracuse

People feel an undeniable attraction to Cuba after visiting even once. It's mostly about the people— their warmth and friendliness, their art, music and culture. However, it is almost impossible to photograph or create art in Cuba without capturing the effects of the embargo. Photographer Joe Guerriero's photography and film work does just that, reflecting more than 20 years of spending time with the Cuban people and experiencing first hand the effects of the United States' continuing embargo of the island. He shows how the embargo affects the lives not only of Cubans but of those Cuban-Americans who still have relatives in Cuba.

Fabiola Jean-Louis: Rewriting History
Point of Contact Gallery

Price: Free; appointment required
Point of Contact Gallery
350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse

Regarding Jean-Louis' exhibition, "Rewriting History," the HuffPost found that the "Victorian era dresses, fashioned almost entirely from paper, become actors in a photographic essay that challenges history, reality, and time. Visual, sculptural and performative at once, the work reels viewers into an alternate realm; one that heroically re-examines the past and thrusts the majesty of African ancestors — real and imagined — to the fore. Each image has its factual, historical connection and a narrative remixed via Fabiola's multi-dimensional lens. The dresses, and their environments, are imbued with vestiges of fantasy and futurism, creating impressions that are otherworldly, palpable, and highly persuasive."

Appointment required. Make an appointment.

7:00 pm
Slava's Journey: Secrets of Snow (directed by Steve Haisman and Clive Howard, 64 minutes, Russia)
Helena Bonham-Carter narrates the story of how—and why—world-famous stage artist Slava Polunin takes his theatrical spectacular "SNOWSHOW" and his gaggle of clowns on a train to Arctic Russia in the middle of the coldest winter for 1,000 years.

Bolero: A Global Hit (directed by Anne-Solen, 53 minutes, France
It's a perpetual soundtrack for the world: a performance of Bolero is begun every 15 minutes. Ninety years after its creation, this documentary explores Ravel's masterpiece through the artists from many disciplines who have taken it on. With them we want to reveal the richness and ambiguity of this seemingly simple work, which has become a major influence on modern music and "pop culture," and to understand the driving forces behind its extraordinary story.

9:00 pm: COMEDY SHOWCASE
Clark and Lewis (directed by Cloe Rice, 13 minutes, U.S.)
It's your favorite 19th-century explorers here, ready to do all the work without any help at all. Watch us explore the Louisiana Purchase, find an all-water route to the Pacific Ocean (?), and maybe even find endangered woolly mammoths along the way. Forget everything you think you know about history because this semi-true documentary series is sure to reframe it, if not rewrite it.

Second Team Film (directed by Ria Pavia, 11 minutes, U.S.)
A scorned stand-in actor for a hit TV show distorts the script to publicly undress her costar.

Coffee and a Donut (directed by Cary Patrick Martin, 12 minutes, U.S.)
A story of a young immigrant who knows no English, and his trials in ... ordering breakfast at the local diner. Pablo is a young immigrant, new to the United States, and speaks no English. When he first comes into a diner, not knowing how to order, he mimics another customer. Thus, a "coffee and a donut" becomes his regular order. Meanwhile, more appetizing meals pass in front of him, which he has to figure out how to order while in a busy environment that leaves him isolated. He befriends Camila, an assertive Latina-American, who takes him under her wing while he learns how to start off with the most important meal of the day.

American Marriage (directed by Giorgio Arcelli Fontana, 20 minutes, Italy)
Leonardo, an Italian immigrant who lives in New York, marries a Latina woman, Nikki, to obtain an American green card. Through the comedy of it all Nikki and Leo fall in love "for real" but it looks like Uncle Sam will be the one to have the last laugh.

Procedural Justice (directed by Josh Callahan, 11 minutes, U.S.)
Crime in Murderburg is out of control and there's only one cop who can clean it up. Unfortunately, he's on vacation in the Poconos, so Murderburg will have to settle for the next best thing. Unfortunately, the next best thing has been suspended for gross misconduct. They'll have to settle for Detective Ace Pallagrello's unique brand of Procedural Justice.

10:15 pm
Bananas Girl (directed by Shayna Connelly, 7 minutes, U.S.)
Seven-year-old Bananas Girl asserts her independence, perfects the art of the non-sequitur and navigates the boundaries between herself and her mom. The film exists in the intersection of home movies, performance art, and documentary, incorporating a mother's and daughter's obsessions and their parallel views of what it means to be creative.

I Wanna Be a Kid (directed by Sam Nickelson, 4 minutes, U.S.)
A collection of children's commercials for the real world, this subversive experimental film shows that when it comes to adulthood, some societal assembly is required.

Love, Death, and Tomatoes (directed by Tugba Erdem, 10 minutes, Turkey)
Love, Death And Tomatoes is a tender and warm dark comedy short, full of quick-witted dialogue and comedic tension. The student film shot on an Alexa Mini. The film tells the story of a dying man and his wife, who decide to commit suicide together in a diner.

Signs (directed by Jason Satterlund, 16 minutes, U.S.)
Two disillusioned sign spinners find love and friendship on the streets of West Los Angeles.

Lost Cat (directed by Michael Bloom, 19 minutes, U.S.)
During his first summer home from college, Andrew loses his cat. As he searches for his pet, Andrew realizes the places and people he thought to be most familiar no longer feel close to him.

The Winter (directed by Xin Li, 5 minutes, Australia)
Walking in a snowy forest, a peasant sees an unusual deer and goes to follow it. The deer allures him and the peasant even wants to catch it.

To The Dusty Sea (directed by Heloise Ferlay, 13 minutes, France)
Left alone in the deepest of the summer, Malo and Zoe are trying their best to catch their mother's elusive eye.

Bubble (directed by Janelle DeWitt, 5 minutes, U.S.)
"Bubble" is a surreal short that literally deals with getting caught up in one's own head.

Pearl Diver (directed by Margrethe Danielsen, 9 minutes, Norway)
Three couples are facing different challenges: A middle-aged hedgehog falls in love with a balloon, but finds it difficult to maintain his grooming routine. A couple of arctic lovers are experiencing a coldness between them, and two oysters are losing patience as they wait to be on the same schedule.

11:45 am
Age of Bryce (directed by David Feagan & Brian Elliott, 10 minutes, U.S.)
Smothered by an adoring, over-protective mom, 12-year-old Bryce Yancy Paul (Bip) is pushed to the brink of pubescent revolution. It's time to ripen. Bloom. Break the shackles of parental paranoia. It's the Age of Bryce. Sometimes a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

Passion Makes School (directed by Alfonso (Rino) Cac, 79 minutes, Italy)
Ivan is a 12-year-old boy who wants to make a documentary. He is looking for a topic that involves him and he interviews his classmates to find it. When spring arrives he is attracted by the beauty of nature and, with his video, he wants to participate in a competition. But together with his school he is involved in a race where you have to ride on static bikes to produce clean energy. In the classroom they talk about environmental crises and energy problems. During the holidays Ivan is more attentive to environmental problems and when he goes to the sea he tries to clean up a beach full of plastic. Back in school, he no longer thinks about competitions and discovers the importance of teamwork. There is no time to lose: the challenge for him and for the other kids is to believe in a possible solution for a problem that affects everyone but, above all, their future.

1:30 pm
Gift (directed by Boya Harizanova, 29 minutes, Bulgaria)
In order to preserve the memory of himself longer, Vasil (81) decides to give his favorite old car, Moskvitch, as a gift to his 12-year old great-grandson.

Sycamore (directed by Mehmet Tigli (15 minutes - Turkey)
An old man spends the day wandering the streets of Istanbul. He communicates with the trees and seagulls rather than other people. All day, he checks the ATMs to find change like a child, even though he does not own an ATM card. He gets happy when he finds money and indignant when he doesn't. For the old man, life is like a game that has remained from his childhood. And the sycamore leaves are a part of this innocent game.

Wednesdays (directed by Jung Yoon Jang & Hae Seoung Kim, 16 minutes, Korea/U.S.)
A Japanese military sexual slavery victim, Dong-bok skips the Wednesday protest and instead goes to find out what bubble tea is. Dong-bok encounters a young couple, which brings back childhood memories of her first love, Byeol-ha.

The Man No One Knew (directed by Oswaldo Colon Ortiz, 30 minutes, Puerto Rico)
The Man No One Knew is an intimate look at Enriquelo, the queer owner of a flea market, devout Catholic and street artist; a man best known around town as a character. We follow his routine, ultimately revealing a far more complex person that has come to terms with himself through performance.

3:30 pm: IMAGING DISABILITY IN FILM SHOWCASE
Terraforma (by directed Drew MacPowell, 15 minutes, Israel)

And They Were Roommates: Navigating Inclusive Mentorship in Higher Education (directed by Kylie Walter, 39 minutes, U.S.)
And They Were Roommates: Navigating Inclusive Mentorship in Higher Education is a catalyst to transform the narrative around inclusive peer men-torship on college campuses. In the field of education, "inclusive" involves real, equitable and individualized opportunities for students with and without disabilities. The InclusiveU program at Syracuse University creates such educational and social opportunities in a higher education setting. Inclusive peer mentorship comes with a unique set of challenges, successes and emotions. The film follows the evolving relationship of Kylie (a junior studying Education) and her roommate Olivia (a non-matriculated freshman studying Studio Arts). Throughout the academic year, their vlogs expose the realities of inclusive mentorship from a student perspective. Interviews with eleven of their peers, fulfilling roles as both inclusive mentees and mentors, adds multiple perspectives.

Love Is Not Love (directed by Stephen Keep Mills, 95 minutes, U.S.)
Early December, New York City, and everyone is on the hunt for love. Why? Because they haven't found it.And because they haven't found it, they make it into a myth and chase the myth instead. That is not love in this romantic drama of fantasy, fate, and yearning.

Blackmail (directed by Alfred Hitchcock, 85 minutes, UK)
Silent movie version of Hitchcock's classic film, with original musical score by Erin O'Hara, performed by Society for New Music.
About the Film: Frequently cited as the first British sound film, Hitchcock began Blackmail as if creating a silent film and then adapted it to sound. Both versions were released by British International Pictures. It was voted best British film of 1929 in a UK poll the year it was released, and in a 2017 a poll of 150 actors, directors, writers, producers and critics for Time Out magazine it was ranked as the 59th best British film ever. Hitchcock's brief cameo is a man bothered by a small boy as he reads a book.
Plot: During their date, Alice White (Anny Ondra) has a fight with her boyfriend, Scotland Yard Officer Frank Webber (John Longden), and decides to leave with an artist named Mr. Crewe (Cyril Ritchard). When they get to the artist's flat, Crewe tries to force himself on Alice, and she kills him to defend herself. Frank investigates the case and, after realizing Alice is the culprit, seeks to help her. However, a thief (Donald Calthrop) with blackmail on his mind complicates matters.
About the Composer: The original musical score was created by CNY native Erin O'Hara, a singer songwriter and composer for film and television. Her music has been featured in films and television programs around the globe. She has created original scores for a number of award-winning docu-mentaries, including the Emmy-nominated In the Family and Michael Moore's Oscar nominated Socko. Her narrative scores include many award-winning shorts as well as the feature-length film Day Zero, starring Elijah Wood.

8:30 pm

The son of a bricklayer, he convinced destitute families living in Madagascar's largest landfill that he could teach them how to build their own houses and, in the process, build their dignity. After 30 years of construction, fighting increasing poverty and political instability, Opeka has created a highly functional city within this dysfunctional African nation. His mission is to prepare the children he saves to one day save their own country.

It Can’t Happen Here
Syracuse Stage
Lisa Peterson, director

Price: Free
Online


Syracuse Stage partners with more than 75 theaters across the country to broadcast a radio adaption of Sinclair Lewis's 1930s politically charged novel It Can't Happen Here. Produced by the Berkeley Repertory Theatre, the show stars Oscar nominated actor David Strathairn. Also in the cast is Greta Oglesby, who starred in Syracuse Stage's production of Caroline, or Change.

Written in 1935 during the rise of fascism in Europe, Lewis's darkly satirical It Can't Happen Here follows the ascent of a demagogue who becomes president of the United States by promising to return the country to greatness. The new stage adaptation, which premiered at the Berkeley Repertory Theater in 2016, closed just one week before the presidential election roiled our nation. Now, Berkeley Rep reprises that production, but this time Syracuse Stage along with theaters across the country will be joining to broadcast this production as a radio play. The broadcast is intended to encourage participation in the upcoming election.
