Foreign Film Festival—Sasame-yuki

As a part of the foreign language curriculum, students, faculty, staff, and all other Antioch community members are invited to attend an Antioch foreign film festival. On November 28, the festival will screen the Japanese film Sasame-yuki (The Makioka Sisters by Kon Ichikawaa, 1983). This sensuously beautiful film chronicles the activities of four sisters who gather in Kyoto every year to view the cherry blossoms. It paints a vivid portrait of the pre-war lifestyle of the wealthy Makioka family from Osaka and draws a parallel between their activities and the seasonal variations in Japan. Snacks and drinks will be served.

Opening reception for Dance of the Happy Shades by Dennie Eagleson ’71

Dennie Eagleson, a fine art and documentary photographer and the creative director of the Herndon Gallery, will have an exhibition at the Glen’ Atrium Gallery from November 14 through January 9, 2013. The exhibition, titled Dance of the Happy Shades, is a series of images created from Polaroid instant film, much of it expired. Natural materials were laid on the surface and exposed as photograms. The resulting images create bursts of color and layered marks from curving stems and veins of leaves. Because of the age of the film, the results are unpredictable, visually unrelated to the subject matter, but create a kind of constellation or “performance—in the frame. The Atrium Gallery is open every day from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and is located in the Glen Helen Building.
