A film by Cathy Lee Crane, associate professor in the Department of Cinema, Photography, and Media Arts, was selected for the International Panorama at the Festival du Nouveau Cinema of Montreal.
Her film, Pasolini's Last Words (2012), combines staged and archival material in an elegiac essay, which considers Pier Paolo Pasolini's brutal murder in 1975 alongside of the texts he published or left unfinished during his last year. This experimental biography documents the final words of one of the most important filmmakers of the 20th century.
The festival runs October 10-21 and will feature two screenings of Crane's film. Ithaca College alumni Amanda Setton has a role in the film.
In the words of Frederick Douglass: " We have to do with the past only as we can make it useful to the present and the future."
Ithaca College’s Roy H. Park School of Communications will be supporting The History Center, in partnership with the St. James A.M.E. Zion Church, to bring to life Frederick Douglass’ impassioned 1852 speech. A dramatic reading of Douglass’ speech will take place on Saturday, October 20, 2012 at 1 p.m. at the St. James A.M.E. Zion Church, 116 Cleveland Ave Ithaca, New York.
While stumping on behalf of abolitionist Gerrit Smith in his bid for Congress, Douglass visited a number of areas in Central and Upstate New York, delivering impassioned speeches excoriating the inability of politicians to address the evils of slavery and describing a post-slavery America based on the core ideals of opportunity, equality, and democracy.
