Join the Boston Sunday Night
Film Club this Sunday, February 6th at 7:20pm for “Born into Brothels” at the Kendall
Square Cinema. Look for Sean
wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As
always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for
“In a tribute to the resiliency of childhood, debut writers/directors Zana
Briski and Ross Kauffman offer a portrait of several unforgettable children who
live in the red light district of Calcutta, where their mothers work as
prostitutes. Briski, a photographer, gives each child a camera and teaches them
how to take pictures, causing them to look at their world with new eyes.
Humorous and heartfelt, the film reveals the power of art and how beauty can be
found in the most unlikely of places. Winner of ten major film festival prizes,
including the 2004 Sundance Audience Award for Best Documentary. Academy Award
Nominee for Best Documentary Feature.”
This Sunday (January 30th), join the Boston chapter of the Sunday Night Film Club at
the Harvard Film Archive
for the film “The 10th
District Court: Moments of Trial”.
“The proceedings of a Paris courtroom are the basis for one of the most
striking nonfiction works to emerge from the continent in recent years.
Drawing from over two hundred appearances in the 10th District Courtroom,
all featuring the same steadfast judge, renowned photographer Raymond
Dipardon provides compelling, often humorous observations of a series of
misdemeanor hearings and sentencings. Using a simple, static formal
structure, he captures the subtler details of human behavior which reveal
the complexities of race, class, and gender in contemporary society.”
Directed by Raymond Dipardon.
Showtime is at 7pm, and I will be there about 15 minutes early wearing a
nametag reading “Sean”. The first few people who show up will get a
somewhat discounted ticket thanks to Corinna’s employee discount.
