Peabody Essex Museum Film Day: Defining Beauty

All three shorts will be screened

2pm Morse Auditorium

The Guarantee screening in Amsterdam...

as part of Niet Normal: Difference on Display

"From December 16th 2009 to March 7th 2010 a major art exhibition that allows a large audience to experience different works will be held at the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam. The exhibition, entitled: Niet Normaal * Difference on Display, features the work of internationally renowned artists who in their work address a defining question of our time: what is normal and who decides?

Even as technology and progress generate new opportunities for people of all sorts, shapes and sizes, we seem to be striving to become ever more uniform. The market and the media increasingly determine how we look at ourselves and at each other. Perfection is the norm.

What is this norm, and who actually satisfies it? Where do we draw the line? At a facial wrinkle, a depression, at someone who isn’t interested in getting ahead, at a visible prosthetic device, taking pills to improve intelligence, at major cosmetic surgery?

Artists create space for diversity with humor and insight. Works by among others Marc Quinn, Marlene Dumas, Viktor & Rolf, The Chapman Brothers and Aernout Mik will be exhibited.Science, games and design will also be featured, and there will be a separate movie theater. In addition, performances, discussions, film screenings, lectures and parties will be held. The exhibition and parallel programming will engage, confront and offer alternative perspectives. Rebellion and humor alternate. Art and science come together to confront urgent questions facing today’s society."


Barbershop Screening of WET DREAMS AND FALSE IMAGES

“Barbershops have always been a place where people come not only to get a haircut – but to meet and converse about current events, politics, pop culture, music, sports, WOMEN, relationships and more.”
Quentin Walcott of Connect NYC

So, we're taking the film back to where it all started, and hosting a screening at Dee Dee the baber's shop -- Fade2Famous. After the screening, there will be a discussion lead by Dee Dee, Daralee Vazquez (Dee Dee’s sister), Quentin Walcot (Connect NYC) and Raid. The event will be filmed and will serve as an example of ways films can be used outside of theaters and in the community. For more information and to RSVP, visit the
Facebook event.

Saturday, January 30th 8:30pm at Fade2Famous (213 Greenpoint Avenue in Brooklyn)
