Grand Illusions - The Cinema of World War I at 7:00 PM

Presented by Harvard Film Archive
Harvard Film Archive
Runs: 2/20 - 2/19
While war films date to the beginnings of cinema and the Spanish-American War, World War I’s magnification of the mutual impact of war and cinema on each other brought the relationship to an entirely new level. As the war that introduced modern technology into combat, World War I saw film and the moving image enlisted as instruments of surveillance and documentation. Away from the battlefront, propaganda films and newsreels worked to keep the civilian population informed and to incite them to join the fight.

An alliance grows based on the shocking aspects of their personal histories. They end up together in a crude cabin in the middle of nowhere at night. Here they learn things about themselves and each other that change their lives irrevocably.

The Lost Worlds of Robert Flaherty at 5:00 PM

Presented by Harvard Film Archive, the Department of Celtic Languages and Literatures, Houghton Library and the Provostial Fund for Arts and Humanities
Harvard Film Archive
Runs: 2/19 - 3/1
“First I was an explorer, then I was an artist.” - Robert Flaherty

His own story draped in myths and mists, pioneering filmmaker Robert J. Flaherty (1884 – 1951) gained his mammoth status in film history from assiduously carving poetry and legends out of real lives. As adventurous, determined and self-reliant as any character in his films, Flaherty trekked to dramatic, remote regions to experience, record and if necessary, recreate the remaining vestiges of the “primitive” lives he deeply revered. Even when working with subject matter closer to home, Flaherty seemed to actively collaborate with “reality” to make the translation to film as awe-inspiring and deeply felt as the wonders of life and ideas were to him. Part poet, part explorer, he never strictly conformed to the ideal of objective documentation or authenticity—a continual source of academic and ethical contention—instead, he exploited the veracity of film and its persuasive powers in order to restore humanity to a more natural state, living in harmony with one another.

a master class with organist CAMERON CARPENTER at 7:00 PM

Presented by Learning From Performers
Sanders Theatre
Runs: 3/4
A virtuoso composer-performer unique among keyboardists, and the first organist ever nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for a solo album, Cameron Carpenter is smashing the stereotypes of organists and the organ. His repertoire—from the complete works of J. S. Bach and Cesar Franck, to his hundreds of transcriptions of non-organ works, his original compositions, and his collaborations with jazz and pop artists—is perhaps the largest and most diverse of any organist. He will lead a master class for student organists using his International Touring Organ—a monumental digital instrument of his own design, playable throughout the world. This event is co-sponsored by Celebrity Series of Boston.

Furious Cinema '70 - '77 at 7:00 PM

Presented by Harvard Film Archive
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.

Furious Cinema '70 - '77 at 7:30 PM

Presented by Harvard Film Archive
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.

From maces, clubs, daggers, and spears to shields, helmets, and suits of armor, this exhibition offers museum-goers more than 150 striking examples of weapons that are also extraordinary works of art.

Various Locations
Runs: 2/5 - 3/26
The second annual Black History/Art History lecture and performance series will include events in February and March 2015. This program is guided by expanded and complicated definitions of blackness, offering an opportunity to critically examine Black History Month itself. In what ways has Black History Month changed since 1976? How has the national observance affected institutions and ways of articulating multiple histories? Do we activate the historical significance of the month within our current intellectual communities? Such questions lie beneath the Black History/Art History series, which features artists and scholars whose works emphasize cross-cultural perspectives and interrogate traditional methodologies.

Furious Cinema '70 - '77 at 7:30 PM

Presented by Harvard Film Archive
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.

Jake, a novelist who is more successful with fiction than with life, faces a marital crisis by daydreaming about the women in his life.

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.

Presented by Harvard-Radcliffe Dramatic Club
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.
