An evening with Tom Rush

An evening with Tom Rush Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Folk legend Tom Rush, a New Hampshire native, has been thrilling audiences worldwide for more than 50 years with signature hits such as his own “No Regrets,” “Merrimac County,” and “Driving Wheel,” as well as iconic covers of Eric von Schmidt’s “Joshua Gone Barbados,” and Joni Mitchell’s “Circle Game” and “Urge for Going.” Rush helped shape the folk revival of the 1960s and his music has left its stamp on generations of artists. “As vital and engaging as ever, Tom Rush is still doing what audiences love him for: writing and playing, passionately and tenderly . . . knitting together the musical traditions and talents of our time.” (The New York Times).

Graduation

Graduation
Description:

In Romanian with English subtitles.

(Cristian Mungiu, Romania, 2016, 2h 8min) Free

Introduction by Script Consultant Ioana Uricaru (Barksdale Jr. Assistant Professor of Film & Media Culture)

Acclaimed filmmaker Cristian Mungiu (4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days) returns with this searing human saga about a father driven to extremes in order to protect his daughter’s future. Romeo Aldea (Adrian Titieni) is a seemingly honest doctor who regrets having settled in his native Romania, a country still teeming with corruption and back dealings. He channels his ambitions for a better life into his teenage daughter, Eliza (Maria Dragus), who’s just one exam away from securing a scholarship to a prestigious British university. But when Eliza is attacked on the eve of her test, endangering her ability to pass, Romeo takes matters into his own hands to ensure her success. Winner of the Best Director prize at Cannes, Graduation is a masterful look at the complex moral choices and compromises some people make when desperation takes hold.

Graduation belongs to that kind of cinema that values reality and realism. Of course, it is not reality, it just uses everyday life events captured in real time, with no editing, to reorganize moments that could have belonged to reality; to a more organized and structured reality than real life. - Cristian Mungiu (Director)

Winner: Best Director - Cannes Film Festival 2016

Time: 2/24/18 3:00pm - 5:00pm
