A New Slant on the South
Callanwolde Fine Arts Center
Featuring work by: Jane Robbins Kerr

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 18, to Fri, Oct 30 2009

We all know the South is home to much oldness – signs, buildings, and a way of life. With this show, I wanted to show a new slant on the South – the music, the reflections, the people, and an almost Elvis sighting.

Joel Leivick: In the Garden
Emory Visual Arts Gallery
Featuring work by: Joel Leivick

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 1, to Fri, Nov 20 2009

Intimate, sensual and complex, celebrated California-based photographer Joel Leivick’s new work looks into the enticements that gardens hold out—that in cultivating nature we might desist from conquering it, and in ordering it we might grasp its true wildness, even make its creativity our own. Leivick’s photographs are at once precise descriptions, luminous observations, and sharp acts of contemplation. To really see a garden, Leivick suggests, is to find a more remarkable garden within—a garden always on the verge of its own conception, continuously in full bloom, and already remembered.

: Thu, Oct 1, 5pm - 7pm

ACP 11 Film Series Presents Jeanne Dielman
Emory University - White Hall, Room 205
Featuring work by: Chantal Akerman

Film Screening: Fri, Oct 23, 7pm - 9:30pm

Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles (directed by Chantal Akerman, 1975), 35mm, 201 minutes Curated by Andy Ditzler

Jeanne Dielman has long been recognized as a landmark work. Yet three decades after its release it has only now become available on DVD in America, and screenings in its original film format have been rare. As part of ACP 11, the Film Love series is proud to present a new 35mm print of this classic film that continues to surprise and haunt audiences today.

Brussels, 1975: a twenty-five-year-old director, a legendary actress, and a mostly female film crew produce a movie in five weeks at a miniscule cost. Its title consists only of the protagonist’s name and street address. Almost every scene breaks cardinal rules of commercial cinema. Yet the enigmatic film has a powerful effect on audiences, and the rarity of its screenings only add to its mystique. Three decades later, Jeanne Dielman, 23 Quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles is considered by many to be a masterpiece of world cinema and is voted one of the top twenty films of the twentieth century by the Village Voice.

Rarely has there been a movie harder to describe than Jeanne Dielman, for the film’s emotional power and psychological depth are ingeniously achieved through minimal onscreen action. For almost the entirety of this three-hour movie, a middle-aged housewife goes about her daily routine: shopping, cooking, cleaning, and once each afternoon meeting her daily client for sex. All of these activities take place in real time – in one notorious scene, the camera stays with Jeanne for many minutes as she peels potatoes for her son’s dinner.

Over the course of three days, as the details of Jeanne’s routines accumulate, the film draws us into an intense examination of her inner life – helped along by the brilliant cinematography of Babette Mangolte, the subtle clues in director Chantal Akerman’s script, and a mesmerizing lead performance by Delphine Seyrig. But gradually, we see Jeanne’s compulsively regular routine begin to break down, leading to a shocking conclusion.

JEANNE DIELMAN is a Film Love event. The Film Love series provides access to rare but important films, and seeks to increase awareness of the rich history of experimental and avant-garde film. The series is curated and hosted by Andy Ditzler for Frequent Small Meals.

Presented with Frequent Small Meals and the Departments of Film Studies and Women’s Studies at Emory University.

This event is free and open to the public.
