Timbuktu (Mauritania/France)
Directed by Abderrahmane Sissako; 2014, 97 mins.

A melding of two sensibilities: the otherworldly beauty of an Arabian Nights fairytale and the worst extremes of 21st century religious fundamentalism. Set in Mali, this Academy Award-nominated drama follows a young family of Tuareg shepherds, emphasizing the loving nature of their relationships and the deeply sensual colors, textures, sights, and sounds that define their quotidian existence. Enter a band of radical jihadists whose sharia law forbids listening to Western music, playing soccer, or socializing between the sexes. Defying their rules brings horrendous, even fatal consequences.

Programmed by Film Forum.

Start time: 7:00 pm

Led by improvising flutist Elsa Nilsson, the quartet—Elsa Nilsson, flutes and vocals; Jeff McLaughlin guitar; Alex Minier, bass; Cody Rahn, drums—is a tour de force, weaving the sounds of Brazil, Cuba, Spain, Turkey and the Baltic countries, with the traditional Swedish folk music of Nilsson’s roots.

Radio station KSER in Seattle declares Nilsson’s music is “absolutely gorgeous.” Nilsson has two CDs to her credit: Salt Wind, released in 2017, and Already There Yet, released in 2013. In addition to Nilsson’s work as a leader, she composes for and regularly performs in a variety of projects, including a duo with pianist Jon Cowherd and Far Cry Flutes. Nilsson also plays with several singer/songwriters, including Jann Klose and the Wendy Hackett Band, and often collaborates on lyrics with Elizagrace Madrone, who co-wrote a number of lyrics for the Wave Hill concert. Elsa currently resides in Brooklyn. Her performance at Wave Hill includes the world premiere of a suite written for the garden and a cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Scarborough Fair.”

Plant Patterns features the work of Adam Frezza & Terri Chiao, Adrienne Elise Tarver, Karin Haas, Liesl Pfeffer, and Nick Wildermuth. The artists use plants’ impressive natural characteristics as a means to explore various themes in their graphic works. Domestic and wild flora have provided artists with inspiration for centuries. The diversity and multitude of plant colors, shapes, and repetitive forms, which evolved to lure pollinators, caution predators, and promote regeneration, are naturally appealing to artists’ sensibilities.

This is the first of four FREE outdoor summer movies, all set in our wonderful city. Come with your blanket and snacks to sit on the North Lawn in West Stuyvesant. There are many benches that allow for comfortable viewing and wheel chair access.

Our first summer movie is The Secret Life of Pets, about a spoiled terrier who enjoys a comfortable life in a New York building until his owner adopts Duke, a giant and unruly canine. During their walk outside, they encounter a group of ferocious alley cats and wind up in a truck that's bound for the pound. Luckily, a rebellious bunny named Snowball swoops in to save the doggy duo from captivity. In exchange, Snowball demands that Max and Duke join his gang of abandoned pets on a mission against the humans who've done them wrong.

The movie will be screened twice: at 6:00 PM and at 8:30 PM. The date will change to August 3 in case of rain or inclement weather.

<![CDATA[Public Art Opening: Fitzhugh Karol in Tappen Park]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2017/07/06/public-art-opening-fitzhugh-karol-in-tappen-park http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2017/07/06/public-art-opening-fitzhugh-karol-in-tappen-park Date: July 6, 2017

Join NYC Parks and artist Fitzhugh Karol for the opening of his public artwork Eyes in Faber Park. Eyes' intersecting steel shapes are derived from the simple silhouettes of hillsides and stairs, and will frame the park’s historic Village Hall. The integrated play feature will provide a chance to engage with the work in a way that most sculptures do not allow, appealing to the community in a fundamental way.

This exhibition is made possible by the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant, which supports the creation of artworks by New York City-based emerging artists at 10 parks that are highly visible, but underserved by cultural programming. The UNIQLO grant program will transform these locations into engaging art destinations with a series of rotating exhibitions and community events through 2019.

Plant Patterns features the work of Adam Frezza & Terri Chiao, Adrienne Elise Tarver, Karin Haas, Liesl Pfeffer, and Nick Wildermuth. The artists use plants’ impressive natural characteristics as a means to explore various themes in their graphic works. Domestic and wild flora have provided artists with inspiration for centuries. The diversity and multitude of plant colors, shapes, and repetitive forms, which evolved to lure pollinators, caution predators, and promote regeneration, are naturally appealing to artists’ sensibilities.

Cinderella Samba is a contemporary twist on the classic “Cinderella” fairy tale. The CityParks PuppetMobile production sets the timeless tale in the lush landscape of Brazil, where, thanks to the help of her fairy godmother, Cinderella attends Rio de Janeiro’s biggest Carnival gala and dances the samba with Prince Paulo himself. After Cinderella is forced to flee the gala just before midnight, the prince sets out to find the mystery woman who stole his heart, in hopes of marrying her.


The lively production features an original commissioned musical soundtrack that brings samba center-stage; handcrafted Carnival festival floats on parade; and one-of-a-kind marionettes donning their most vibrant Carnival costumes, created by the expert puppeteers from the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater in Central Park.
