Harvard Film Archive
Runs: 2/18 - 4/29
“Nobody knows anything.” That’s William Goldman’s famous line from his 1983 memoir, about working in movies in the 1970s. And watching the movies from that period, that crazy worldwide flowering of ballsy cinema, you can see that it was true. Nobody really did know anything. The producers and money-men didn’t have a clue; the marketing departments were lost; the film critics weren’t sure what was going on; and often the “heroes” onscreen knew less than anybody. And it was glorious, because they were willing to try just about anything. More Details

Drapetomania: Grupo Antillano and the Art of Afro-Cuba at 10:00 AM

Presented by Hutchins Center for African and African American Research
The Ethelbert Cooper Gallery of African & African American Art
Runs: 1/30 - 5/29
A forgotten visual arts and cultural movement that thrived briefly between 1978 and 1983, Grupo Antillano articulated a vision of Cuban culture that privileged the importance of Africa and Afro-Caribbean influences in the formation of the Cuban nation. In contrast to the official characterization of Santeria and other African religious and cultural practices as primitive and counter-revolutionary during the so-called Quinquenio Gris (a "grey" period of neo-Stalinist censorship during the 1970s), Grupo Antillano valiantly proclaimed the centrality of African practices in national culture. They viewed Africa and the surrounding Caribbean not as a dead cultural heritage, but as a vibrant, ongoing and vital influence that continued to define what it means to be Cuban. Some Afro-Cuban intellectuals, such as the noted ethnomusicologist Rogelio Martínez Furé, proclaimed triumphantly that a "new," authentic Cuban art had been born. More Details

Farkas Hall
Runs: 4/24 - 5/3
“I feel like the world is ending.” “It’s not. It’s just the first of us to get married.” In a haze of cocaine and champagne, three high school friends gather in a hotel penthouse the night before their best friend’s wedding. Fueled by resentment, bitterness, and insecurity, the women expose old wounds and jealousies that threaten to turn this bachelorette party into a apocalyptic bender with deadly consequences. Leslye Headland’s wicked black comedy is a vicious look at modern friendships, jealousy, and how sometimes the people whom you hate most in the world are your best friends. More Details

Presented by Office for the Arts
Agassiz Theatre
Runs: 4/24 - 5/3
Jake, a novelist who is more successful with fiction than with life, faces a marital crisis by daydreaming about the women in his life. The wildly comic and sometimes moving flashbacks played in his mind are interrupted by visitations from actual females. Jake’s women include a revered first wife who was killed years earlier in an accident, his daughter who is recalled as a child but is now a young woman, his boisterous and bossy sister, an opinionated analyst, his current wife who is leaving Jake for another man, and a prospective third wife.

Endgame at 8:00 PM

Presented by Harvard-Radcliffe Dramatic Club
Loeb Experimental Theater
Runs: 5/1 - 5/9
With biting comedy and titillating sadness, Samuel Beckett portrays a family at the end of all things. Should we hang on? Or leave forever? Do we need each other? Was humankind an abomination to begin with? Can we have a last bit of fun with one another before the painkillers run out? Come see “Endgame,” the play where you can lose your teeth, scratch your fleas, and pee your pants, all in the name of “no one cares.” More Details
