ESSENTIAL 3D: Goodbye to Language

Tue, 03/24/2015 - 2:53pm
March 25, 2015 / Wexner Center Film/Video Theater
Jean-Luc Godard has altered the entire trajectory of cinema countless times and now, in his 43rd feature, he pushes the boundaries of 3D filmmaking. Starring Godard's own beloved dog, the film tracks a couple in the midst of an affair as they discuss the modern world. A plot summary is impossible for this film, which is more concerned with the immediate moment in front of the camera, swirling ideas about the state of the world, and exploding the possibilities of the cinematic form. As Variety notes, For 69 densely packed minutes that feel like an adrenaline shot to the brain, Goodbye continually reaffirms that no single filmmaker has done more to test and reassert the possibilities of the moving image during the last half-century of the art form.(70 mins., 3D DCP)

HOW LONG, O LORD: SUFFERING THROUGH THE EYES OF FAITH

Sun, 03/22/2015 - 2:59pm
March 23, 2015 / Martin de Porres Center
Throughout the history of humanity, people have struggled with the meaning of suffering in their lives and the lives of those they love. Why does G_d allow suffering? What can be learned from suffering? How can we be with someone in his/her suffering? Using insights from sacred texts of the Jewish and Christian traditions, Rabbi Kozberg and Rev. Koepke will explore how we might adopt a more positive view of suffering. We will learn ways to enter into the suffering of others from their point of view and help them explore their expectations of how G_d responds to human suffering. Rev. Donald Koepke was ordained in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in 1967 and received chaplaincy training at the UCLA Medical Center. He is the Founder of the CLH Center for Spirituality and Aging and is now its Director Emeritus. A member of the Forum on Religion, Spirituality and Aging (FORSA) of the American Society on Aging, he is on the FORSA editorial board. Rev. Koepke has authored and edited many articles and book chapters. Presently he is editor of the upcoming book, The Essential Spirit: Providing Wholistic Care to and with Older Adults. Rabbi Cary Kozberg has been a guest speaker at the Martin de Porres Center several times. He is the Director of Religious Life at Wexner Heritage Village in Columbus, where he serves both Jewish and non-Jewish residents, families, and WHV staff. He is a member of the National Association of Jewish Chaplains. Rabbi Kozberg is a published author and poet and has lectured extensively on the spiritual challenges facing older adults.

I'm Not Racist... Am I?

Sun, 03/22/2015 - 2:59pm
March 23, 2015 / Wexner Center Film/Video Theater
Join us for the feature-length documentary I'm Not Racist... Am I?, followed by an engaging discussion with filmmaker Catherine Wigginton Greene. The film follows 12 teenagers from New York City who come together for one school year to talk about race and privilege, both with each other and with friends and family. While none of the teens think that the racial rules of their parents' generation apply to them today, we see how these difficult conversations challenge them to look within. By the end of their time together, these courageous young people arrive at a more significant definition of racism-one that's bigger, perhaps, than any of us have ever imagined.
