“CRITIC'S PICK! One of the most kinetic films ever made in secret. Courageous and artistically potent.”

– Ben Kenigsberg, The New York Times

"When Rasoulof returned from Cannes in 2017, following the premiere of his film “A Man of Integrity,” he was banned from filmmaking for life and sentenced to a year in prison. But as a man of integrity himself, the director could not stop. His latest film, There is No Evil premiered and won best film in competition at the Berlin Film Festival, where instead of being silenced, Rasoulof launches his most openly critical statement yet, a series of Kafkaesque moral parables about Iran’s death penalty and its perpetrators, made in open defiance of the restrictions the government put on him."

Los Hermanos / The Brothers

Los Hermanos / The Brothers

Two Cuban-born brothers, both virtuoso musicians – Aldo and Ilmar López-Gavilán – live on opposite sides of the geopolitical chasm that separates the U.S. and Cuba. But although they lead very different existences, the brothers have an instinctual connection. Following their parallel lives in New York and Havana, Los Hermanos / The Brothers offers an amazingly heartfelt – though often startling – view of estranged nations through the lens of music and family. In capturing their momentous reunion and electrifying first performances together, the film shows how family bonds can transcend politics. Featuring an electrifying, genre-bending score composed by Aldo and performed with his brother, Ilmar, and with guest appearances by maestro Joshua Bell and the Harlem Quartet. Closed Captions available for this film.

Emily @ The Edge of Chaos

Emily @ The Edge of Chaos

Emily @ the Edge of Chaos interweaves Emily Levine’s live performance with animation, appearances by scientists, and animated characters (John Lithgow as Sir Isaac Newton, Lily Tomlin as Ayn Rand, Leonard Nimoy as Sigmund Freud, Richard Lewis as Aristotle, Matt Groening as Aldo Leopold). The film uses physics, which explains how the universe works, to explain our metaphysics – the story of our values, our institutions, our interactions. Using her own experience and a custom blend of insight and humor, provocation and inspiration, personal story and social commentary, Emily takes her audience through its own paradigm shift: from the Fear of Change to the Edge of Chaos.

The Vermont Arts Council’s Spotlight Gallery announces "Exploring Technology: An Artist and an Astronaut Look at the Future", viewable on the Council’s new online gallery from May 3rd through August 31st.

Six years later she would marry the Skylab 4 Commander, astronaut Jerry Carr, generating forty years of creativity as Musick responded to the unique world view that the space program gave to us.

Faces of Addison County: A Trent Campbell Retrospective

Faces of Addison County: A Trent Campbell Retrospective

This exhibit can be viewed on the Sheldon Museum's website, https://www.henrysheldonmuseum.org/faces-of-addison-county
It will be available for in-person viewing at the Sheldon Museum starting the week of July 13 through September 11, 2021

The Sheldon Museum is pleased to honor Trent Campbell in this retrospective exhibit. Campbell, a longtime resident of Middlebury, learned photography at his grandfather’s knee in his home state of Minnesota. He became the Addison County Independent photographer in 1998 where he took award-winning photos around the county for more than 20 years. Campbell spent many hours on assignment and even more wandering the back roads of the county, meeting and getting to know countless residents. He became a fixture at events and was an expected sight with his trademark camera and warm smile. Campbell’s career was interrupted in 2018 when he survived the first of two strokes. He continues his recovery but still has his unique eye. He may be shooting less but still loves the county and the people in it.

Campbell said, “I feel so embraced and supported by the people of Addison County after serving them through my work that I want to give back to them and celebrate them with this collection of photographs.” Read more about Campbell in an article that appeared in the Addison County Independent on April 1, 2021.

When Campbell started at the paper he shot on Tri-X film using Nikon 35 mm SLRs. He loaded and developed his own film and then scanned the negatives to make prints for the paper. Campbell switched to digital cameras in 2001, and all the prints on exhibit here are from images captured with either a Nikon D1H or a Nikon D300.
