Film and Discussion on Human Rights Day

DEC 10th, 2018 6:00-7:30 pm TEXTOR 101

Open to the Public; everyone welcome.

An in-depth documentary on U.S. arms transfers to Mexico in a context of deepened corruption and human rights violations. The so-called Drug War serves make legal the killing and repression of people: the United States provides the weapons, while Mexico provides the people killed and disappeared, including in Ayotzinapa. This documentary brings together the testimonies of human rights activists, journalists, and people in Mexico directly affected by the violence carried by both government forces and organized crime in Mexico, with U.S. support.

Discussion to follow the 26 min. film; Daniela Rivero (IC ’21) and Prof. Ute Ritz-Deutch (SUNY-Cortland; TC3; Amnesty International- Local Group 73) will lead discussion about Human Rights and arms transfers to Mexico.

Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band’s landmark 1969 album Trout Mask Replica surely is one of the strangest rock albums ever released, notable for its off-putting combination of harmonic dissonance, out-of-synch counterpoint, abrupt changes of texture, surreal lyrics, and an obstinate avoidance of many of rock’s standard style markers. The album’s most original contribution, however, is its use of forms usually associated with mid-twentieth century modernist composers such as Stravinsky, Stockhausen, and Ligeti. In employing these types of forms instead of conventional verse-chorus form Beefheart plays with the listener’s sense of time in ways that are uncommon in rock, reinforced by producer Frank Zappa’s unorthodox recording techniques.

The Out of the Closet and Onto the Screen series at Ithaca College will show the documentary “Reel in the Closet” on Wednesday, Nov. 7. The 6 p.m. screening in Textor 103 is free and open to the public.

“Reel in the Closet” tells the story of a film tech who discovers the real lives of queer people in the past by restoring hundreds of never-before-seen home movies dating back to the 1930s. It is a fascinating, intimate survey of lives lived within and also outside the pages of history, and a reminder that LGBT people lived full lives, even as society ignored, persecuted and discriminated against them. But time is running out to save what’s left before the films are destroyed by unknowing or unaccepting families of those who made them.
