THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

COHEN/STRATMAN/BROWN: REFLECTIONS ON PLACE
DIRECTOR: JEM COHEN, DEBORAH STRATMAN, BILL BROWN
US, 1996-2002

FACULTY PRESENTER: MATT MCCORMICK—“These three experimental documentaries fall into what one might call ‘new landscape’ films, in that they reflect personal connections to a new or changing environment. Jem Cohen’s LOST BOOK FOUND (1996) reads as a scrapbook of artifacts the artist collected as he acclimated to life in the big city (37 mins.). In IN ORDER NOT TO BE HERE (2002), Deborah Stratman penetrates the controlled isolation of suburbia and nearly becomes entrapped by it (33 mins.). And in BUFFALO COMMON (2002), Bill Brown reflects on the dismantling of nuclear missile silos in the Dakota plains—a drastic change to the landscape that is perhaps more symbolic than visual (23 mins.). Collectively, these films explore new ways of considering personal surroundings while inadvertently serving as time capsules of a particular time and place.”—MM. (93 mins.)

Matt McCormick has been called away on unexpected business and will be unable to attend this screening.

ADAM’S RIB
DIRECTOR: GEORGE CUKOR
US, 1949

FACULTY PRESENTER: AMY O’BRIEN—Nominated for an Oscar for its sparkling screenplay by Ruth Gordon and Garson Kanin, Cukor’s screwball, battle-of-the-sexes comedy was inspired by a real-world legal case of married lawyers (Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy) on opposing sides in a court battle to settle whether a wife (Judy Holliday) had the “right” to shoot her philandering husband (Tom Ewell) in order to protect her home from mistress Jean Hagen. “Hepburn frequently chose to play strong, intelligent, often times independent women who perhaps were outside the norm for the time. Both funny and thought-provoking, it reminds me of why I want to make films—to entertain and yet to make people think about the issues I am passionate about.”—AB. (101 mins.)

School of Film faculty member Amy O’Brien will introduce the film.
