Good movies can be so hard to find these days. Luckily, the Middlebury Film Society has your back!! Tonight, the Film Society continues their J-Term screening series with Three Colors: Blue, a film about car accidents, exotic dancers, and emotional liberty.
Co-Head of the Film Society, Phoebe Mitchell ’17, says, “the director (Kyzysztof Kieslowski) felt so satisfied with the film that he retired after its release.” Essentially, that’s the film equivalent of a mic drop. Definitely worth checking out.
Tomorrow night, Saturday Jan 17, at 6:00pm in Axinn 232, the Hindu Student Association and Midd Masti will be screening the critically acclaimed film “English Vinglish”. This Indian comedy chronicles the riotous and poignant adventures of an Indian housewife who enrolls in an English-speaking course. Set in New-York City, this quirky pic will have you rolling with laughter and reflecting teary-eyed on stark cinematic commentary on what it means to call a place home. There will be English subtitles!
Tonight at , MCAB presents Dear White People for the Free Friday Film at both 6 and 9 PM in the Dana Auditorium. Dear White People is director and screenwriter Justin Simien’s debut film, and has been gaining a lot of attention for being an impressive debut from a young director (Simien won the Sundance Breakthrough Talent Award last year) and it’s pointed and humorous critique of race relations on college campuses. The film is “A social satire that follows the stories of four black students at an Ivy League college where controversy breaks out over a popular but offensive black-face party thrown by white students. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, the film explores racial identity in acutely-not-post-racial America while weaving a universal story of forging one’s unique path in the world.” Hope to see you there.

This past Wednesday, a group of students organized a die-in in solidarity with the national movement against racist state violence. Around 100 students arrived in Ross dining hall at 10:30, lying down in every corner of the room, as students Rubby Paulino, Kizzy Joseph, and Elizabeth Dunn read a series of statements recounting recent police killings like Michael Brown and Eric Garner, and calling for the student body to join in solidarity. You can find some of the statements below, and Molly Stuart’svideo footage of the event above. If you are interested in learning more about student activism around these issues, see here.

Acclaimed Iranian-Canadian film director Shahin Parhami will present on his work and self-representation in film tonight at 4:30 PM in the RAJ. Parhami’s work predominantly revolves around heartfelt depictions of Iranian art, music, and culture, both at home and in diaspora. His most recent project, Amin, “is the story of an ancient musical tradition and one man’s struggle to preserve it,” and “is told using a unique approach to documentary storytelling that challenges the boundaries of fiction and reality.” For those interested in narrative arts, this will undoubtedly be an intriguing talk from a director who has expanded his medium into new territory. Brainerd Commons will host a reception following the talk at 6:30.
When: Friday Nov. 14 at 6PM and 9PM Where: Dana Auditorium Cost: Free
