Paterson is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey--they share the name. Every day, Paterson adheres to a simple routine: he drives his daily route, observing the city as it drifts across his windshield and overhearing fragments of conversation swirling around him; he writes poetry into a notebook; he walks his dog; he stops in a bar and drinks exactly one beer; he goes home to his wife, Laura. By contrast, Laura's world is ever changing. Paterson loves Laura and she loves him. He supports her newfound ambitions; she champions his gift for poetry. The film quietly observes the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.

In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, Remember This House. The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages of his manuscript.Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin's original words and flood of rich archival material.

Artist Talk: Steven Edson, Photographer

Friday, April 7, 7 pm

Location:
Catamount Arts Center Cabaret Room
115 Eastern Ave.
St. Johnsbury, VT

Admission: FREE

Prize-winning photographer Steven Edson will speak about his work and his exhibition All Roads Lead Home, which is on view in Catamount Arts’ Rankin Gallery March 18 through April 29, 2017. On Saturday, April 8 he will conduct a daylong photography workshop from 9 am—5 pm. The artist talk is free and open to the public, but potential students must register for the workshop at www.catamountarts.org/education.

Upon attending the reception for the highly competitive juried show ArtsConnect@CatamountArts, artist Steven Edson learned that he had been designated Second Prize Winner by Juror and Fleming Museum Curator Andrea Rosen. The next day his ride back home to Boston stretched from 3 hours to 10 hours as he stopped to take photographs of the winter landscape in Vermont and northern New Hampshire. As a result, Edson realized the series of images now on view in the Rankin Gallery that perfectly represent his belief that photography is all about “how to look at what might be considered commonplace and extract a visual gem.”

Edson graduated with a BFA from MassArt with a major in SIM (The Studio for Inter-related Media). He exhibits widely and was most recently featured in Art Now: New Directions in Contemporary Photography at the Ann Arbor Art Center in Michigan. Formerly a photography lecturer at the Boston Architectural Center and commercial photographer who integrated video and animation into work for clients, Edson now concentrates his energies full time on fine art photography.

The Homestretch

Wednesday, April 12, 7:00 pm

The Homestretch follows three homeless teens as they fight to stay in school, graduate, and create a new life. Each of these smart, ambitious youths — Roque, Kasey, and Anthony — will surprise, inspire, and challenge audiences to rethink stereotypes of homelessness as they work to complete their educations while facing the trauma of being alone and abandoned at an early age. While told through a personal perspective, their stories connect with larger issues of poverty, race, juvenile justice, immigration, foster care, and LGBTQ rights.

With unprecedented access into Chicago public schools, The Night Ministry “Crib” emergency youth shelter, and Teen Living Programs’ Belfort House, The Homestretchfollows these kids as they move through the milestones of high school while navigating a landscape of couch hopping, emergency shelters, transitional homes, street families, and a school system on the front lines of the homelessness crisis.

The Homestretch examines the struggles these young people face in obtaining a high school level education, and then follows them beyond graduation to focus on the crucial transition when the structure of school vanishes, and homeless youth often struggle to find the support and community they need to survive and be independent. A powerful, original perspective on what it means to be young and homeless in America today while striving to build a future.

The Homestretch is part of American Graduate: Let's Make it Happen, a public media initiative supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to help local communities across America address the dropout crisis.

The latter had recently introduced the policy of apartheid and found the notion of a biracial couple ruling a neighboring country intolerable.

SECRET BELGIAN BOOKBINDING (For high school students and adults)

Tuesdays, April 25, May 2 and May 9, 6-8 pm

Location: Catamount Outback Artspace

Instructor: Sharon Kenney Biddle

Participants will be creating a hard cover blank book. The two-part binding process involves sewing together the cover boards in a puzzle-like weave, and binding the inside pages by attaching them to the cover. This book uses the dramatic-looking sewing as the centerpiece of its design. Because the pages lie flat, the book is ideal as a travel journal, a garden journal or a sketchbook. All materials and supplies will be provided as well as written directions for the Secret Belgian Binding for each participant to take home.

Class fee: $60. 10% discount for Catamount Arts Members and high school students.
Materials fee of $8 due to the instructor at first class. Limit of 8 participants. Registration deadline is April 21.

High school students should complete the enrollment form after purchasing.

Sharon Biddle has been teaching bookbinding for twenty years. She believes that old-fashioned paper-filled books, especially ones that we make ourselves, are not obsolete or irrelevant. Designing a book and building its contents are worthy, satisfying experiences. A well-made book that is entirely one’s own from cover to cover is a valuable example of imagination and careful craftsmanship.

Instructor: Robin Kristoff

Catamount Arts and the School of Creative & Performing Arts (SOCAPA) invite young storytellers ages 5-7 to create a group film! This free workshop, to run alongside the 48-Hour Film Slam competition for older students, will introduce children to visual storytelling. Each child will help create a story, think of how to tell their story in pictures, and illustrate one section of the story they tell. The narrations and illustrations will be converted into one group film, which will be screened Sunday evening, April 30, at St. Johnsbury Academy’s Fuller Hall during the Tap Into Film: 48-Hour Student Film Slam premiere.

Please complete your registration by filling out the enrollment form here.

Robin Kristoff grew up in Barnet, VT and returned to her hometown after completing her M.A. with Emerson College. She is an Assistant Director of the School of Creative & Performing Arts (SOCAPA), and her first novel is currently on submission.

Jude Law (The Young Pope, Closer, The Talented Mr Ripley) stars in the stage production of Obsession, broadcast live from the Barbican Theatre in London. Ivo van Hove (NT Live: A View from the Bridge, Hedda Gabler) directs this new stage adaptation of Luchino Visconti’s 1943 film.

Gino is a drifter, down-at-heel and magnetically handsome. At a road side restaurant he encounters husband and wife, Giuseppe and Giovanna. Irresistibly attracted to each other, Gino and Giovanna begin a fiery affair and plot to murder her husband. But, in this chilling tale of passion and destruction, the crime only serves to tear them apart.

The stage production of Obsession is produced by Barbican Theatre Productions Limited, London and Toneelgroep Amsterdam; co-commissioned by Wiener Festwochen and Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg; co-produced by Holland Festival and David Binder Productions; and supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

The dream cast of Renée Fleming as the Marschallin and Elīna Garanča as Octavian star in Strauss’s grandest opera. In his new production, Robert Carsen places the action at the end of the Habsburg Empire, underscoring the opera’s subtext of class and conflict against a rich backdrop of gilt and red damask, in a staging that also stars Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs. Sebastian Weigle conducts the sparklingly perfect score.

This is an on-screen event.
