  • Swimming to Cambodia

    4/13/13
    1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Swimming to Cambodia. Actor and raconteur Spalding Gray delivers his acclaimed monologue Swimming to Cambodia for the camera. Slipping in history and socio-political context of the political turmoil Cambodia was experiencing at the time, Gray recounts his experience as an extra on the Sam Waterston film The Killing Fields filmed on location. A modern master of language and story, Gray's riveting tale speaks to the power of storytelling and importance of using the arts—theatre in particular—to bring about social awareness.

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Zabriskie Point. Following one of the student protests during the 1960s, a young man steals an airplane and flies off into the desert. Unexpectedly, he meets a fellow traveler on the journey and ends up falling in love with her. In this idyllic tale of self-discovery, growing pains and young love, Italian director Michelangelo Antonioni makes his only American film, providing a unique outsider's perspective on the turbulent 1960s and the generation wanting to form its own sort of utopia.

  • Far From Heaven

    4/13/13
    9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Far From Heaven. In a tribute to the "women's films" of the 1950s, writer/director Todd Haynes produces a visually tantalizing and emotionally involved look at the life of one '50s housewife in abnormal circumstances. When she finds out her husband (Dennis Quaid) is having a homosexual affair, Cathy Whitaker (Julianne Moore) realizes that, although she has the perfect veneer of a happy life, she wants more. She seeks solace in the company of a black gardener (Dennis Haysburt), and soon rumors about the two of them begin spreading like wildfire. Providing a personal look at the racial and sexual prejudices of the era, this modern reinterpretation of Douglas Sirk's classic film All That Heaven Allows stands out with tight writing and manicured visuals. Add in the acting talents of Viola Davis and Patricia Clarkson, and Far From Heaven becomes an irresistible, tenderly wrought tale of suppressed love and desire.
