Death of a nation the Timor conspiracy : a special report /
On December 7, 1975 Indonesia secretly -- but with the complicity of the Western powers including the US, the UK, and Australia -- invaded the small nation of East Timor. Two Australian television crews attempting to document the invasion were murdered. In 1993, with the Indonesian army still occupying the country, John Pilger and his crew including director David Munro, slipped into East Timor and made this film. In the intervening 18 years, an estimated 200,000 East Timorese -- 1/3 of the population -- had been slaughtered by the Indonesian military. The CIA has described it as one of the worst mass-murders of the 20th century. Pilger tells the story using clandestine footage of the countryside, internment camps and even Fretlin guerrillas, as well as interviews with Timorese exiles, including Jose Ramos Horta and Jose Gusmao, and Australian, British, and Indonesian diplomats. Nixon had called Indonesia the "greatest prize in southeast Asia" because of its oil reserves and other natural resources. Even though Indonesia had no historic or legal claim to East Timor, it was convenient for diplomats to declare that East Timor, just gaining its independence from Portugal, would not be a viable state. However the lie was given to this argument when Australia and Indonesia signed the Timor Gap Oil Treaty and carved up the huge oil and gas reserves in the seabed off East Timor. None of the politicians from that period -- President Ford, Henry Kissinger, Daniel Moynihan, Margaret Thatcher, John Major, Gough Whitlam -- has clean hands. The Indonesian military used US and British planes to bombard the island, while the defense ministers proclaimed ignorance. As Pilger gets an Australian diplomat to admit, East Timor was considered "expendable." But no one watching the massacre in the Dili cemetery can excuse the geopolitical machinations that led to this genocide.

Decoding Alan Turing
Alan Turing was a brilliant Mathematician, Logician and Cryptographer. A Cambridge graduate who was fundamental to cracking the Nazi's Enigma Code during WWII, Turing created what is hailed by some as the first modern computer and was a legendary innovator in his field. He was also gay. And he fell victim to the intolerance and legal prosecution of his time felt by all LGBT individiuals under the Section 11 of the Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1885 in Great Britain. Under this act, homosexuality was considered an extreme mental illness and subject to criminal sanctions. To avoid jail, he went through behaviorial modification hormonal therapy and chemical castration, suffering their side effects - and their consequences. Turing was ruined professionally. Exiled from his past and his colleagues, he turned his professional focus to mathematical biology, studying the occurrence of the Fibonacci Sequence in nature. Turing's death from an apparent suicide was a tragic loss to Great Britain and the world. Who knows where his mind would have taken the science of Mathematics or the world of modern computing? Posthumously, Turing is lauded. Universities around the world have programs and buildings in his name. He has earned an English Heritage Blue Plate on his childhood home. And, since 1966, the Turing Award has been given each year by the Association for Computing Machinery, widely considered to be the computing world's equivalent to the Nobel Prize.

From early 2003 to 2010, DS + R redesigned Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall and the Juilliard School, built a free-standing, grass-covered pavilion that houses a destination restaurant (the Lincoln) and a public lawn, and inventively modified the public spaces connecting the complex's existing buildings. As architecture critic Martin Filler states in the film, "Both the High Line and Lincoln Center have had a really euphoric effect on life in New York. So it's populism of a very high order" ...

Critics and theorists Mark Wigley, Anthony Vidler, and Mr. Filler offer insights into the firm's history, their important works, and their unique process of reimagining the public identities of two major New York urban spaces-- Container.

From early 2003 to 2010, DS + R redesigned Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall and the Juilliard School, built a free-standing, grass-covered pavilion that houses a destination restaurant (the Lincoln) and a public lawn, and inventively modified the public spaces connecting the complex's existing buildings. As architecture critic Martin Filler states in the film, "Both the High Line and Lincoln Center have had a really euphoric effect on life in New York. So it's populism of a very high order" ... Elizabeth Diller, Ricardo Scofidio and Charles Renfro's intelligent commentary is complemented by remarkable cinematography and engaging interviews with New York City Planning Commissioner Amanda Burden and other civic figures. Critics and theorists Mark Wigley, Anthony Vidler, and Mr. Filler offer insights into the firm's history, their important works, and their unique process of reimagining the public identities of two major New York urban spaces-- Container.

Divided by diversity a true story of triumph over racism : a film /
"In 2010, five student athletes from the Bronx, NY were accepted to attend a private Catholic school in Vermont. A school in desperate need of students and five teens in search of an opportunity to escape one of the worst crime areas of New York should have been a perfect match. Instead, the youths were met with resistance and conjecture that they had been recruited to prop up a failing basketball program. Feelings of entitlement and resentment, fueled by social media and helicopter parenting, grew to a xenophobic frenzy. 'Divided by Diversity' tells the story of how these young men, along with their coaches, teammates, and supporters, endured physical and verbal attacks as well as covert efforts to have them returned to New York. It also reveals many of the modern elements that are contributing to racial tension nationwide."--cover.

Drawing Lesson.
This lecture opens with an excerpt from William Kentridge's animated film Shadow Procession, which "immediately calls to mind various historical displacements, exiles, and genocides, even as it avoids pinning the work to any specific time or place," says Harvard Magazine. From that point on, Kentridge's first of six "drawing lessons" travels from Plato's allegory of the cave, to illusion in art, to philosophical tyranny to make the point that knowledge is in actuality subjective and that the proper place to live lies somewhere between Plato's passive shadow-watcher and the absolutist philosopher.
DVD 10968
Drawing Lesson.
An excerpt from William Kentridge's animated film rendition of Mozart's opera The Magic Flute sets the stage for this lecture in which he builds upon observations elucidated in Drawing Lesson One to argue that colonialism - with all its inherent brutality - is the logical culmination of 18th-century Enlightenment thought. "Every act of enlightenment - " says Kentridge, "all ambitions to save souls, all the basic impulses - is so dogged by the weight of what follows it, the shadows, the violence that has accompanied the Enlightenment. The colonial project in its own description of bringing light to darkness is a gruesome working out of Plato's cave.
DVD 10969
Drawing Lesson.
In the first two of William Kentridge's "drawing lessons," "the South African filmmaker argued that rationality has often served as a mask for power and control, as ideas of what is 'rational' privilege one group's understanding of reality over another's," says Harvard Magazine. Kentridge carries that theme forward in this lecture - which is anchored by his short animated film Mine - as he delves down into "the legacy of his home country's multiple strata of historical violence.
DVD 10970
Drawing Lesson.
The idea that uncertainty and improvisation in art can help in negotiating the dangerous passage between passive acceptance and authoritarian subjugation is a theme that William Kentridge continues to expound upon in Drawing Lesson Four. He uses his short film Journey to the Moon - a tribute, in part, to George Méliès' 1902 cinematic classic La Voyage dans la Lune - as a part of a discussion praising cinema as an art form that exemplifies, as stated in Harvard Magazine, "an artistic environment saturated with experimental potential." Kentridge then draws a parallel to an artist's studio, a nonjudgmental space where one can safely and freely engage with ideas and materials without fear of repercussions or reprisals.
DVD 10971
Drawing Lesson.
In this lecture, William Kentridge explores the concepts of self and other, transformation and deformation, and translation and mistranslation by yoking together the African funerary sculpture called an asen, a film loop of a panther pacing in its cage, Rainer Maria Rilke's poem "Der Panther," Albrecht Dürer's woodcut of a rhinoceros created from bits of second-hand description, and Pablo Picasso's bronze sculpture of a she-goat cast from an assemblage of found objects. "Every translation is a mistranslation," says Kentridge.
DVD 10972
Drawing Lesson.
Anti-entropy as it applies to art - think of it as a sort of explosion in reverse - results, ultimately, in the annihilation of creativity because each step toward the completion of a project rules out more and more of the random possibilities of what that project otherwise might have been. "The infinite becomes finite," says Kentridge in this lecture, as he seeks an answer to the question "Can we avoid the end of all potentiality?" A partial performance of his work The Refusal of Time offers signs of hope.
DVD 10973
Drawing the passing
In this program, artist, filmmaker, and dramatist William Kentridge demonstrates his remarkable filmmaking technique--stop-action animation using photos of charcoal drawings in which he has erased and redrawn scenes in different arrangements--as he works on Stereoscope. Footage from that piece as well as from History of the Main Complaint; Felix in Exile; Sobriety, Obesity & Growing Old; Mine; and Johannesburg, 2nd Greatest City After Paris powerfully illustrates his abiding concerns with the sociopolitical legacy of racial oppression and colonialism in South Africa. The film clips also reveal how his polemical "drawings for projection" evoke a nuanced sense of time's passage as each image builds upon the shadowy remnants of prior ones--Publisher description.
