Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures is a wonderfully feel-good film that surges with the excitement of the race to space, and the nascent Civil Rights Movement. It’s a riveting story that follows Katherine Goble, Dorothy Vaughn, and Mary Jackson, three African-American women, as they struggle with the tensions of racial discrimination and sexism of early 1960s America, while their mathematical and engineering talents play a crucial role in advancing space travel. A story all the more amazing as it is based on fact, perhaps the most surprising aspect of the film is that …

Jerusalem Jewish Film Festival: Bang! The Bert Berns Story

Piece of my Heart is one of those songs that hits you hard and deep, for me, and for a multitude of music fans (fanatics?) it will always be connected with Janis Joplin, but after seeing Bang!

The site-specific installation covers the smooth walls with jute sacks, their rough texture marked by time, and imprinted with traces of people and transactions; human labor translated into visual, textural expression.

John Musker and Ron Clements (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin) have created a story with the force of myth, powered by nature, magic, and character, infused with music and humor, and with a visually compelling island aesthetic expressed in use of traditional designs, tattoo art, glowing underwater scenes, dramatic storms and serene green exotica.

Kutiman – Offgrid Offline

Art is a mind-altering substance. Certainly, in its creation, but even as an observer, viewing, hearing, experiencing a work of art impacts the mind whether consciously or not. The ways art is made and the ways in which it is defined and understood are always in flux, although we are living in a time when this process is perhaps more readily apparent than most. Offgrid, by Kutiman (Ophir Kutiel), the musician and video artist, is the latest work in his Thru You series begun in 2009, a mesmerizing mash-up whose …
