film:: Black Klansman Spike Lee, director

From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague,
Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream.
Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award® winning Get Out

ARTIST NOTE The pieces on this program were carefully selected with The Kent Museum exhibition's theme "Backstory" in mind. Lembit Beecher's moving piece Three Songs of Remembered Love recounts the incredible story of his grandparents' love during a tumultuous time in Estonia during WWII. The piece makes use of a recording of his grandmother's voice to tell this story along with soprano and double bass. I've chosen four movements of Harrison Birtwistle's piece about Black Hawk Island in Wisconsin where poet Lorine Niedecker was born and spent nearly her entire life. The music shares observations of Niedecker's surroundings - the animals, plants, and of course, the water. As a third work, I programmed a remix of Guillaume de Machaut's Douce Dame Jolie by friend and fellow soprano Ariadne Grief. Just as one of the artists featured in "Backstory"has collected and stitched old scraps of fabric together in new ways, this piece illuminates the old by bringing it into modern times.

film & discussion: Decoding the Weather Machine with Roger Hill
Disastrous hurricanes. Widespread droughts and wildfires. Withering heat. Extreme rainfall. It is hard not to conclude that something's up with the weather - and most scientists agree. This new NOVA documentary explains why they agree that our climate is changing, how climate change will impact our daily lives and how we can be resilient in the face of enormous changes. Join us for two evenings of viewing and discussion with meteorologist Roger Hill.
Jaquith Library and the Energy and Climate Change Committee have taken the lead on this transfer of information. They have arranged and promoted the viewing and discussion discussed below. The discussion is led by Roger Hill, who is very knowledgeable on Climate Change

Art at the Kent exhibition: Backstory, showing on Fridays through Sundays from September 7th through October 7th at the Kent Museum in Calais, Vermont.
Every creation tells a story, but it is the backstory we hope will shine in the particular way that this eclectic group of 16 Vermont artists use materials to express their personal narratives. These stored impressions are visually conveyed through paint, discarded paper, antique fabric, metal, wood, film, and thread.
Join us for a festive Opening Celebration on Saturday, September 8th from 3 to 5 pm with music, food and drink that complement this incredibly compelling exhibition!
Sundays at 4 pm
