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.

At that moment, the familiar family dynamic, centering around each family member's need to feel seen, begins to play out.

6:15 pm
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
Opeka (directed by by Cam Cowan, 89 minutes, U.S.)
Pedro Opeka declined an opportunity to play professional soccer in his native Buenos Aires. He chose instead to become a missionary and live in one of the poorest countries in the world. 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.

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."

Songs for Time Unspooling: Eight New Poems
LeMoyne College
Featuring Julia Ebner, soprano; Danan Tsan, mezzo-soprano; Sar-Shalom Strong, piano

Price: Free, but pre-registration required
Online


A virtual mini-concert of Edward Ruchalski's settings of Elizabeth Twiddy's poems.

These new poems by Twiddy were written prior to the coronavirus pandemic and chosen for this performance with the pandemic and its effects in mind. The songs were composed by Ruchalski specifically for the performers. Twiddy and Ruchalski worked closely on the songs from January to August of this year in their home in Syracuse.

Recorded by Hobin Studios (audio) and Greg Giovanini (video) in the Panasci Family Chapel on Oct. 5, this mini-concert is the first performance of the Music Program's 2020-21 Guest Artist Series, which has taken a virtual approach to its performances due to the coronavirus.

A live Q&A with the poet, composer and performers will follow the performance.

To attend the virtual premiere, email giovangl@lemoyne.edu for the Zoom link by Monday, Nov. 9.

Talley’s Folly
Syracuse Stage
Robert Hupp, director

Online


Kate Hamill and Jason O'Connell star in Lanford Wilson's 1980 Pulitzer Prize-winning Valentine of a play. On July 4, 1944, Matt Friedman, a 40+ accountant and in love for the first time in his life, drives 200 miles to the heart of Missouri Christian farm country to propose to Sally Talley, ten years younger and seemingly not interested. Having been met at the door by Sally's shotgun toting brother—Jews not welcome here—Matt takes refuge in a Victorian folly of a boathouse on the nearby river, where Sally finds him. Cue moonlight and music (waltz, please), willows and woods. Can one enchanted evening change the course of two lives? Once upon a time—there was hope in the land.

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.

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.

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.

Libya: The Infernal Trap (directed by Julie Dungelhoeff, Catherine Norris Trent, and Abdallah Malkawi, 40 minutes, France)
In this exceptional documentary, the filmmakers Catherine Norris Trent, Julie Dungelhoeff and Abdallah Malkawi take viewers to the heart of the chaos that is present-day Libya; alternating between the front-lines of the current conflict and the huge, continuing migration crisis unfolding there. They follow a militia from the Libyan city of Misrata to the frontline of the war, which is taking place among abandoned homes on the southern outskirts of the capital city, Tripoli. They witness first-hand the fragmentation of forces battling eastern Libyan strongman Khalifa Haftar.

8:15 pm
Can You Hear Us Now? (directed by Jim Cricchi, 86 minutes, U.S.)
Small-town activism. Nail-biting elections. A last-minute power grab. In Wisconsin, where extreme partisanship has become the norm, voters are finding their lives increasingly irrelevant to state lawmakers. Through the stories of a working-class, single mother of five, a laid-off environmental educator, a retired public school teacher and a tireless voting rights activist, Can You Hear Us Now? unravels the ways that years of one-party rule have reshaped democracy in a state long known for its progressive history.

Visiting Artist Lecture Series: KARLINCHE
Syracuse University School of Art and Design

Price: Free
Online


Karla Rosas is KARLINCHE, an undocumented illustrator and painter born in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, and based in New Orleans, Louisiana. Much of Karla's work explores the relationship between "illegality," family history, queerness, and self-identity. Karla's work is grounded in the idea that the personal is political, and she considers her art a form of reasserting her subjectivity and agency as an undocumented person in the United States. Karla's work has also been part of numerous political actions locally and nationally, including the Flowers on the Inside postcard campaign in partnership with CultureStrike, Casa Arcoiris, and Forward Together. In 2019, she was awarded the Define American Immigrant Artist Fellowship, one of eight artists selected nationally.

The lecture is available to the public via livestream on the Syracuse University Art Museum YouTube channel.

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.

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.

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, 15 minutes, Italy)
Leonardo, an Italian immigrant who lives in New York, marries a Latina woman, Nikki, to obtain the American greencard. 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.

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 seem-ingly simple work, which has become a major influence on modern music and "pop culture", and to understand the driving forces behind its extraordinary story.

7:00 pm: IMAGING DISABILITY IN FILM SHOWCASE
Terraforma (directed by Drew MacPowell, 15 minutes, Israel)

Enid & Mami (directed by Julia Reagan, 18 minutes, U.S.)
Enid & Mami steps into the daily life of Enid Mojica McGinnis, an educator, pastor, and caretaker to her mother, Emilia Roman. The short documentary provides a glimpse into the humor, honor, and hardship of the primary caretaker role, as well as the special bond that exists between a mother and her daughter.

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 mentorship 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.

8:00 pm
Maternal (directed by Maura Delpero, 91 minutes, Argentina)
The Hogar is a paradoxical world in which the precocious maternity of a group of teen moms lives together with the vow of chastity made by the nuns who welcomed them, between rigid rules and Christian love. Sister Paola has just arrived in Buenos Aires from Italy to finish her novitiate and take her final votes at the Hogar, an Italian religious center for teen moms in Buenos. Lu and Fati, both 17, are children abruptly converted into mothers. Three different women who will influence each other's lives and their relationship with motherhood.

Talley’s Folly
Syracuse Stage
Robert Hupp, director

Online


Kate Hamill and Jason O'Connell star in Lanford Wilson's 1980 Pulitzer Prize-winning Valentine of a play. On July 4, 1944, Matt Friedman, a 40+ accountant and in love for the first time in his life, drives 200 miles to the heart of Missouri Christian farm country to propose to Sally Talley, ten years younger and seemingly not interested. Having been met at the door by Sally's shotgun toting brother—Jews not welcome here—Matt takes refuge in a Victorian folly of a boathouse on the nearby river, where Sally finds him. Cue moonlight and music (waltz, please), willows and woods. Can one enchanted evening change the course of two lives? Once upon a time—there was hope in the land.
