TSL Films

n Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf — Revolutionary landscape designer Piet Oudolf is known for designing public works like New York City’s popular High Line and the Lurie Garden in Chicago’s Millennium Park that redefine our conception of gardens as works of art in themselves. This gorgeous, meditative documentary immerses viewers in his work, taking us inside Oudolf’s creative process. From his aesthetic theories to his strikingly abstract sketches to the ecological implications of his ideas, the film poetically reveals how Oudolf upends conventional notions of nature, public space, and, ultimately, beauty itself. In English and Dutch with subtitles. 2018. 1h 15 m.

n I Am Not A Witch — When eight-year-old Shula turns up alone and unannounced in a rural Zambian village, the locals are suspicious. A minor incident escalates to a full-blown witch trial, where she is found guilty and sentenced to life on a state-run witch camp. There, she is tethered to a long white ribbon and told that if she ever tries to run away, she will be transformed into a goat. As the days pass, Shula begins to settle into her new community, but a threat looms on the horizon. In English, Bemba, Nyanja, and Tonga with subtitles. 2017. 1h 33 m.

n Whitney — Whitney Houston broke more music industry records than any other female singer in history. With over 200 million album sales worldwide, she was the only artist to chart seven consecutive US No. 1 singles. She also starred in several blockbuster movies before her brilliant career gave way to erratic behavior, scandals, and death at age 48. Whitney is an intimate, unflinching portrait of Houston and her family that probes beyond familiar tabloid headlines and sheds new light on the spellbinding trajectory of Houston’s life. The film uses never-before-seen archival footage, exclusive demo recordings, rare performances, audio archives, and original interviews with the people who knew her best. 2018. 2h.

n John McEnroe: In the Realm of Perfection — Revisit the bounty of 16-mm-shot footage of the left-handed tennis star John McEnroe, at the time the world’s top-ranked player, as he competes in the French Open at Paris’s Roland Garros Stadium in 1984. Close-ups and slow motion sequences of McEnroe competing, as well as instances of his notorious temper tantrums, highlight a “man who played on the edge of his senses.” This far-from-traditional documentary probes archival film to unpack both McEnroe’s attention to the sport and the footage itself, creating a lively and immersive look at a driven athlete. 2018. 1h 35 m.

n Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda — One of the most important artists of our era, Ryuichi Sakamoto has had a prolific career spanning over four decades. From techno-pop stardom to Oscar®-winning film composer, the evolution of his music has coincided with his life journeys. Following Fukushima, Sakamoto became an iconic figure in Japan’s social movement against nuclear power. As Sakamoto returns to music following a cancer diagnosis, his haunting awareness of life crises leads to a resounding new masterpiece. An intimate portrait of both the artist and the man. In Japanese with subtitles. 2017. 1h 42 m.

n A Bread Factory • Part One — Celebrate our independent theater and the city of Hudson in a cinematic experience like no other. See A Bread Factory, the new film from writer-director Patrick Wang (In the Family, The Grief of Others), while sitting in the seats of the very theater where it was filmed! And see it before it premieres in New York City and Los Angeles! Told in two films, A Bread Factory was shot in Hudson and at Time & Space Limited in 2017. It features a cast and crew from your neighborhood and beyond and takes its inspiration from the life story of TSL’s co-directors Linda Mussmann and Claudia Bruce.

A Bread Factory Part One: For the Sake of Gold. After 40 years of running their community arts center, The Bread Factory, Dorothea (Tyne Daly) and Greta (Elisabeth Henry) are suddenly fighting for survival when a celebrity couple – performance artists from China – come to Checkford and build an enormous complex down the street catapulting big changes in their small town. 2h 2 m.

n The Cakemaker — Thomas, a German baker, is having an affair with Oren, an Israeli married man who has frequent business visits in Berlin. When Oren dies in a car crash in Israel, Thomas travels to Jerusalem seeking answers regarding his death. Under a fabricated identity, Thomas infiltrates himself into the life of Anat, his lover’s newly widowed wife, who owns a small Café in downtown Jerusalem. Thomas starts to work for her and create German cakes and cookies that bring life into her Café. Thomas finds himself involved in Anat’s life in a way far beyond his anticipation, and to protect the truth he will stretch his lie to a point of no return. In English, Hebrew, and German with subtitles. 2018. 1h 45 m.

n Ingmar Bergman Centennial: Wild Strawberries (1957) — Wild Strawberries is centered on two journeys: one physical, the other introspective. Isak Borg (played by Victor Sjöström, director of The Phantom Carriage) drives to Lund University, where he is to be given a lifetime achievement award for his work in medicine. Along the way, Borg is confronted by his past and forced to acknowledge his failures as a son, lover, husband, and father. The former journey is a testament to his successful career; the latter, his failings as a man.

Ingmar Bergman, the film’s writer-director, notes in his autobiography Images (available at the TSL Book Space) that Isak Borg was a characterization of himself at the time: ‘I was thirty-seven, cut off from all human relations… I was a loner, a failure, I mean a complete failure. Though successful. And clever. And orderly. And disciplined.’ Wild Strawberries is an insightful journey into the mind of its auteur, who’s centennial we are now celebrating with this and other films. 1957. 1h 32 m.

n NT Live • Julie — Vanessa Kirby (The Crown, NT Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) and Eric Kofi Abrefa (The Amen Corner) feature in the cast of this brand new production, directed by Carrie Cracknell (NT Live: The Deep Blue Sea) and broadcast live from the National Theatre to cinemas. Wild and newly single, Julie throws a late night party. In the kitchen, Jean and Kristina clean up as the celebration heaves above them. Crossing the threshold, Julie initiates a power game with Jean – which rapidly descends into a savage fight for survival. This new version of August Strindberg’s play Miss Julie, written by Polly Stenham, remains shocking and fiercely relevant in its new setting of contemporary London. 1h 35 m

Wish You Were Here: A Look Back at Life in Hudson Through Vintage Postcards

What did people do to connect with each other before telephones, internet, and instant messaging? Many sent postcards, even if it was to a friend or relative just a few miles away. The Hudson Area Library History Room has collected an extensive set of postcards from this river city, most from the early 1900’s, that tell charming personal stories about life here 100 years ago. The collection illuminates how essential this widely used method of communication was for travelers, family and friends in and around Hudson. It includes many street scenes of Hudson, prominent buildings such as the county courthouse, and parks such as Promenade Hill.

From this extensive collection Wish You Were Here: A Look Back at Life in Hudson Through Vintage Postcards, the library’s first ever curated local history exhibition. The opening includes a presentation on the collection, hosted by Gary Sheffer, a native of Hudson. The display is curated by David Murphy of Hudson, former president of the Hudson Area Library Board of Trustees and a member of its History Room Committee.

There will be a wine and cheese reception during the opening of this special exhibition, which will be in the library’s Community Room through October. The library will also have note cards and t-shirts for sale with an image of an iconic historic Hudson postcard.

The library strives to make these images available to the general public. In addition to this two month exhibition, we are also making the images of our postcards available in our page on the Hudson River Valley Heritage’s Digital Collections.

The Hudson Area Library History Room houses a special collection that pertains to the history of the City of Hudson, Greenport and Stockport; as well as Columbia County and New York State. The History Room also hosts the Local History Speaker Series at the library, offering free monthly talks on diverse topics related to the history of Hudson, Greenport, Stockport, and Columbia County.

Tour the Lighthouse

11 a.m., 12 p.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m.

Hudson-Athens Lighthouse

www.hudsonathenslighthouse.org

Located in the middle of the Hudson River between the Village of Athens and the City of Hudson, the Hudson-Athens Lighthouse was built in 1874 to guide ships safely around the Middle Ground Flats. HALPS is the sole owner of the house, and is responsible for the restoration, maintenance, and preservation of the lighthouse. The lighthouse continues to be an active aid to navigation on the river.

As visitors arrive at the lighthouse, they climb the metal stairs and enter the interior of the lighthouse where they are welcomed by tour guides, a docent, or Emily Brunner herself, through video clips, will relate factual stories about life on the lighthouse in the 1930’s. Emily is the daughter of Emil Brunner, the last civilian lighthouse keeper, who served as keeper from 1930 – 1949. His family lived on the lighthouse during much of the 1930s before moving to Athens.

The tour is an opportunity to learn about the important role that the Hudson River played in the development of the upper Hudson River towns, and the role that the Hudson- Athens Lighthouse plays in the safe navigation of the river transportation.

You may want to bring a picnic lunch and should plan adequate time for the tour and boat ride of 1-1 1/2 hours at a minimum.

Art Omi

1405 County Route 22, Ghent

518-392-4747

www.artomi.org

Art Omi: Architecture presents an afternoon celebrating new and experimental architecture in and around the Hudson Valley region, featuring the inauguration of Zoid, as well as a book signing with David Sokol (1pm-2pm), author of Hudson Modern: Residential Landscapes (Monacelli Press). Zoid is a project of Manhattan-based architecture firm LevenBetts, and the latest pavilion to be included in Architecture Field 01. Hudson Modern is a new book devoted to contemporary domestic architecture in the region, and includes Open House, a home by LevenBetts.

Zoid is an architect’s artwork: a shelter made of six equal repeated shapes—volumetric right trapezoids—that enclose an open courtyard. Zoid posits a way of living—somewhere between a house and a campsite—focused on basic elements needed to live in the world. Both a stripped down shelter and a “proto-proto-type” for an affordable house, Zoid is designed to prioritize nature and the collective engagement with others. Affordability and habitabilty will be the ultimate goal of Zoid as both a shelter and as a house. As such the project intends to recast the material production of socially just living space.

David Leven and Stella Betts (LevenBetts) are architects and artists who have a long tradition working together and separately in the arts. Together they have made spaces for the display of art and have created work for arts exhibitions. They started their New York City-based award winning architecture practice, LevenBetts in 1997 and focus on art and design at all scales including urban design, public architecture, houses and housing, commercial workspaces, exhibitions and furniture. LevenBetts is nationally and internationally recognized through publication and awards

Schlachtfest

Schlachtfest is a one of a kind experience that is sure to be fun for the whole family and a one for the scrapbook. Celebrated four times annually throughout the fall at the Mountain Brauhaus in Round Top, NY; festivities include live German/American music by a renowned German band, authentic German/American cuisine, abundant German beer on tap, topped with a traditional Schlachtfest celebration parade lead by our very own Master of Ceremonies. A Schlachtfest is a traditional German celebration going back thousands of years, celebrating the pig, as pork is traditionally a staple in the German diet. Each fall townspeople would harvest their pigs and process them into various roasts, sausages, soups and other delicacies making sure to utilize the entire pig without waste. Schlachtfest is a way for the German people to praise and celebrate the pig and all that is has done and provided for them throughout the year. Today we celebrate Schlachtfest at the Crystal Brook Resort and Mountain Brauhaus to enjoy great food and drink as well as continuing a great cultural tradition. The evening starts with a traditional Schlachtfest dinner including, Metzel soup, Sultze (headcheese), Cucumber Salad, Fresh Ham, Bratwurst, Blutwurst, Liverwurst, Hox, boiled potatoes, dumplings, sauerkraut, finished off with our famous Napoleon for dessert. After the traditional meal is over the festivities continue...dance, have fun, and be a part of an authentic ceremonial Schlachtfest parade. Following the parade, the pig is then raffled off for you to take home a piece of pork to enjoy with your family. This is sure to be a night that you’ll never forget!

Known for its winsome songwriting and profound earnestness, Real Estate’s airily melodic songs float atop a latticework of jangly guitars that should appeal to fans of Weezer, Deerhunter, and the Feelies. The group’s most recent album, “In Mind,” delivers the familiar warmth and soft-focus narratives that characterize the band – pastoral guitars, elegantly deployed arrangements, a sort of mindful melancholy. Airtight pop songs vie with open-ended jams that might remind a listener of Wilco.

The hikes will take place once a month, September 28, and October 26. Each hike will be guided by a licensed guide from Catskill Mountain Wild, a guide service creating custom outdoor adventures.

The Olana Partnership is focused this summer on a new exhibition called Costume & Custom: Middle Eastern Threads at Olana – Many programs are being built around the theme of this exhibition. The Artists on Art Tours series, for example, is a collaboration with the Institute of Arab and Islamic Art in New York City. The collaboration enables contemporary working artists to interpret the Main House at Olana from their own unique perspectives. Participating artists this season are of Arab descent and will bring their personal and expansive perspective touching on themes such as Olana’s Persian influence, landscape, identity, clothing, gender, as well as the larger issues of Orientalism and Islamophobia. These tours are offered twice a month and followed by an in-depth discussion with the artist.
