1. HOLY TIME IN ETERNITY HOLY ETERNITY IN TIME (Trailer) by Elise Florenty & Marcel Türkowsky


    from Elise Florenty Marcel Türkowsky / Added

    Black screen during the prologue: a voice, that of a man, talks about himself. The story, at first individual, develops, continues by digressions in a monologue embracing in its stream a mythology centered on being Black today in the U.S.A. The words enter into dialogue, alternating, schizophrenic, from the “you” written on a title card on the screen to the “I” expressed by the voice-over. Elise Florenty and Marcel Türkowsky make explicit at the beginning of the film what their project will be: from oneself to the other, it’s a matter here of passages and exchanges, of porosities between spoken word and active listening, of faces and places. Second sequence. We are somewhere in the South, nourished by the world of Faulkner (evoked in the credits), not far from the regions of the imaginary county of Yoknapatawpha (North Mississippi), where most of Faulkner’s novels take place. It would be fruitless to try to reconstruct such a story here. The film sweeps us along in a flood of physical feelings, of strange landscapes and the sequences fit together, distributing apparitions and disappearances according to an organic mode, in a perpetual dissolve. All the images, all the sounds prove to be haunted, by history, by nature, by literature too. It is the fabric of a fluidity where imaginary and real cannot be distinguished, in sight of an ode to the world as the title indicates, borrowed from Allen Ginsberg’s poem “Footnote to Howl.” (Jean-Pierre Rehm/ FIDMarseille/2011)

    • Rock Plaza Central - (Don't You Believe The Words Of) Handsome Men

      {Official Selection Toronto Independent Film Festival 2010} {Official Selection Kingston Canadian Film Festival 2010} Paper Bag Records recording artist Rock Plaza Central is happy to announce the release of their first video from the critically acclaimed 2009 album, At the Moment of our Most Needing, for the song "(Don't You Believe the Words of) Handsome Men”. A short film that was started months ago, it seems to be especially timely given the state of politics on both sides of the border, and indeed, around the world. The video, created by Josh Lyon of Akaflk (www.akaflk.com) and Lenny Epstein of Epstein Creative (www.epsteincreative.ca), features the song as sung by some of Canada’s top politicians, including Stephen Harper, Michael Ignatieff, Jack Layton, Elizabeth May and Gillles Duceppe, as well as many others from south of the border, like George W. Bush and Barack Obama, and even just rich old farts like Donald Trump and Bill Gates. The concept, from band leader Chris Eaton, hopes to convey a growing dissatisfaction with the current state of governmental politics, a non-partisan message that our politicians are letting us down. “Somehow,” Chris Eaton explains, “the job of politicians has gone from serving their countries to just trying to win elections, and from leading by example to belittling the opposition so much that they are elected by being the lesser evil.” In Canada this past weekend, there were many protests against the government’s decision to prorogue parliament, with people arguing that those politicians should grow up and return to work on Monday. Most Canadians are getting sick of all parties behaving without decency and respect towards one another, especially in a time of such fiscal hardships. This is nothing new to 2010, of course, but it is growing. And it’s an attitude that has disenfranchised many voters. “Many of the lyrics in song emerge from the story of William Faulkner’s Light in August,” Eaton continues about the song’s meaning. “And you can hear that in the parts about the young woman who is convinced by a young man that he loves her, and when she becomes pregnant, he skips town. But all story is metaphor, and I like to have multiple meanings in my songs, so there’s also a strong comment for me about the music industry, and how as soon as people start finding out who you are, all of these slick business guys start calling and telling you what you should do, and also how most of today’s politicians will just tell you what the polls have told them you want to hear, and then you’re ultimately let down. It makes me kind of sick to my stomach. And basically, I think we can do better as humans.” Music Video for Rock Plaza Central - (Don't You Believe The Words Of) Handsome Men from their album …At The Moment Of Our Most Needing Or If Only They Could Turn Around, They Would Know They Weren't Alone. Created by: Josh Lyon (akaflk) Produced by: Lenny Epstein and Josh Lyon Original Concept: Chris Eaton Music: Rock Plaza Central Special thanks to: Paper Bag Records, Greg Tilson

                A portrait of a brother and sister. 'I ran down the hill in that vacuum of crickets like a breath travelling across a mirror she was lying in the water her head on the sand spit the water flowing about her hips there was a little more light in the water her skirt half saturated flopped along her flanks to the water's motion in heavy ripples going nowhere renewed themselves of their own movement I stood on the bank I could smell the honeysuckle on the water gap the air seemed to drizzle with honeysuckle and with the rasping of crickets a substance you could feel on the flesh' - The Sound and the Fury, William Faulkner

DONNELLEY and DAVID GILBERT present THE SOUND AND THE FURY Created and performed by ELEVATOR REPAIR SERVICE Directed by JOHN COLLINS Text by WILLIAM FAULKNER Obie Award winning ensemble ELEVATOR REPAIR SERVICE returns to The Public, home to its sold-out performances of Gatz (2010 and 2012) and Arguendo (2013), with their widely praised staging of William Faulkner’s modernist masterpiece, The Sound and the Fury. With a lush sound score, high-energy choreography and a profoundly versatile ensemble, ERS delivers a verbatim staging of the novel’s opening chapter (“the Benjy chapter”), Faulkner’s famous experiment with memory and language. Serving up the tragic demise of Faulkner’s Compson family with humor and pathos against a backdrop of an eerily timeless Southern living room, this ensemble of theatrical daredevils, known for their fearless commitment, breathes thrilling new life into another American literary classic. Originally presented by New York Theatre Workshop with the support of Dartmouth College. Generously supported by the Howard Gilman Foundation, with additional support from the Edward T. Cone Foundation. elevator.org/soundandfuryplay
