A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut

The Story of Adele H. (L'histoire d'Adele H.) (1975, 96 mins.) 

In what is arguably Truffaut's purest and, perhaps cruelest, exploration of obsessive and destructive love, The Story of Adele H. adapts the real-life diaries of Adele Hugo, the daughter of French writer Victor Hugo. Adele (Isabelle Adjani) follows her English soldier fiance to Nova Scotia only to face bitter and humiliating rejection. One of Truffaut's most haunting and disturbing films and one in which the director comes closest to exposing the mysterious and incurable addiction to love.

Thursday Nights at the Cinematheque

A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut

The Wild Child  (L'enfant sauvage) (1970, 83 mins.)

Small Change  (L'argent de poche)  (1976, 104 mins.) 

Two of Truffaut's most compelling films dealt specifically with the lives of children. In an austere documentary style, 1970's The Wild Child tells the true story of a young feral boy found in 18th century France. In another documentary-style film, 1976's Small Change chronicles the lives of several young children at play in a French provincial town. Both films reflect Truffaut's own troubled youth but also show his deep love for children and his lifelong interest in the subject of childhood.

Veterans, the Middle East, and Reflections on 'Lawrence of Arabia'

A gallery exhibition of student research and panel of War on Terror veterans
Jerome Richfield 319
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Thursday, November 8

At 7:00 PM, doors will open for the research exhibits
At 7:30 PM, attendees will be seated for the panel of speakers and subsequent discussion

This event is free and open to the public.
Refreshments and food will be provided.

(People whose schedules necessitate that they arrive late or leave early are welcome! We hope you can experience this event.)

*************

The significance of this film:

This year is the 50th anniversary of Lawrence of Arabia, an epic film that has been considered by many critics one of the greatest ever made. It was the highest grossing motion picture of 1962 and received seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture (Sam Spiegel), Best Director (David Lean), and Best Cinematography (Frederick Young). Earning over $37 million, it grossed twice as much as the next top film.

Peter O'Toole and Omar Sharif became cinematic superstars after the release of the film, both earning nominations for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, respectively.

More importantly, however, Lawrence of Arabia, based on the life of British officer T.E. Lawrence, forged some of the most powerful mid-century myths of the Middle East. Set during and after World War I, it depicts in sweeping vistas the wartime trauma and identity crisis of not only whites sent to fight in the Middle East, but also Arabs and Muslims forced into European geopolitics removed from their own history.

The homoerotic relationship between Peter O'Toole and Omar Sharif's characters marked a milestone for queer representations in cinema as well as a harbinger for postcolonial criticism in the decade following.

As we near the tenth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq and the eleventh anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan by US and allied forces, the film offers us an opportunity to reflect on the evolving relationship of US viewers to the "theater" of war in the Middle East. We will have the opportunity to rekindle our understanding of World War I's role in today's War on Terror.

***************

The commemoration of this film:

Most importantly, for the 50th anniversary of this film, four veterans of the War on Terror will share their reactions to viewing the film in 2012. They will talk about the ways in which Lawrence of Arabia might be relevant or outdated--and generally, what it feels like to watch it, having served in wars tied to the same region.

Below are our panelists:

VAL REYES is a retired colonel of the US Army, who served in Afghanistan as part of Operation of Enduring Freedom. He was formerly in the social work department at the University of Southern California and now operates a combat trauma center. He has published research on war trauma and remains interested in studying the reintegration process of veterans as they return from war overseas.

JOSEPH LONERGAN is a military police officer of the US Army, who served a tour of active duty at Guantánamo prison, where he had to respond to conflicts surrounding detainees. Now he is stationed at Fort Leavenworth. A graduate of California Lutheran University with a BS in criminal justice, he is currently pursuing an MA in English and planning a career in academia.

JASON FREUDENRICH holds an MA in Rhetoric and Composition from California State Northridge. He is a retired corporal from the US Marine Corps, who served a tour of active duty in Iraq as a Motor T specialist. Presently he teaches writing at Pierce College.

PIERRE MARCOS holds an MA in English from California State Northridge. He is a retired sergeant from the US Marine Corps who did multiple tours in the War on Terror (Iraq) as an infantryman. Presently he teaches English at Chaminade High School and coaches football.

Student Research Gallery:

Students in English 473 (American Literature), English 312 (Film and Literature), and Greco-Roman Mythology (Classics 315) are doing research projects that seek to draw insight from Lawrence of Arabia by relating the cinematic narrative to other war myths rooted in American literary traditions, cinema conventions, as well as ancient narratives.

***********************************

The mission of this event:

This is the second of six fiftieth-anniversary celebrations as part of "Myth Goes to the Movies." The first event was "The Music Man" on September 24, which is summarized here:

http://textontrial.blogspot.com/2012/09/the-music-man-and-shirley-jones-50th.html

The third event will be the 50th anniversary of "Dr. No" on December 4 at 4:30 PM in Sierra Hall -- details forthcoming.

Sara Dean, a graduate of CSUN's English MA program, is coordinating the film series with me. Our mission is to open new kinds of transdisciplinary and transcultural discussion by bridging film and mythology. All events involve guest speakers, student research galleries, and discussion of landmark films from 1962-1963. My hope is also to build on this work to develop a World Literature minor at CSUN, analogous to comparative literature. If you have any questions about the film series or the World Literature program, feel free to contact me at the following email: rolopez@csun.edu or at this phone number: 818-677-3415.

Special Thanks:

"Myth Goes to the Movies" would not be possible without generous assistance from the Arthur N. Rupe Foundation in Santa Barbara, California.

The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences presents

A Richard W. Smith Lecture in Cultural Studies featuring:

Pal Zak on Recent Research on Brain Chemistry:  A Revolution in the Sciences of Good and Evil

Why do human beings engage in courageous acts of compassion but also perpetrate violence?  Could the apparent flip-flopping morality of our species have a hidden explanation?

Paul Zak's new book The Moral Molecule:  The Source of Love and Prosperity is a first-hand account of the discovery of a molecule that makes us moral.  It reveals that compassion is part of our human nature, why loneliness can kill you, and why your neighbor may be a psychopath.

From the laboratory to the jungles of Papua New Guinea, Paul Zak takes you on an amazing journey that reveals what it means to be human.

This event is scheduled for Tuesday, November 13th, at 7:00 p.m. in the Whitsett Room, Sierra Hall 451.  Reservations are requested.

Image for Radical Narcissism: A Performance Art and Writing Workshop by Raquel GutierrezRadical Narcissism: A Performance Art and Writing Workshop by Raquel Gutierrez

4:30 pm - 6:45 pm - The Colleague's Room (2nd floor of the Sierra Center)

Radical Narcissism: How do we invoke our truths in ways that create a dynamic cross-hatched narrative that straddles identity, politics, affect and community building without shaking our fists in tired political ranting or maudlin acts of self-defeat? How we do create a vernacular around the building of community and other senses of belonging? This workshop is for emerging writers and performing artists who wish to deepen their artistic process beginning with the communities each body emerges from as a place of research.Through a rigorous self-questioning method, this performance art and writing workshop will focus on zones of intimacy, finding authenticity and the act of presence with ourselves in relation to the worlds we inhabit and create. Using imagery work and a wide variety of experimental situations, participants will develop skills to communicate with text and the body and transform ideas into performance. The emphasis will be placed both on solo and group explorations as well as performance process.

Raquel Gutierrez cut her teeth on Los Angeles performance art when she interned and house managed at Highways Performance Space in the year 2000. Raquel is a performance writer, playwright, and cultural organizer, studied in university settings and performed in a variety of locations, like the Salvadoran countryside, cabarets, galleries, San Antonio, more universities, Pico-Union, etc. In 2001, Gutierrez was one of the co-founding members of the performance ensemble, Butchlalis de Panochtitlan (BdP), a community-based and activist-minded group aimed at creating a visual vernacular around queer Latinidad in Los Angeles. Raquel also co-founded other queer women of color projects and Latino projects, Tongues, A Project of VIVA and Epicentro Poetry project. Raquel has published work in Ambientes: New Queer Latino Writing (edited by Lazaro Lima and Felice Picano), Los Angeles Weekly, Make/shift magazine, Journal of Chicana/Latina Studies, and Izote Vos: Salvadoran American Literary and Visual Art (published by SF's Pacific News Service).

Luis J. Rodriguez Award-winning writer and poet and Activists and Artists from the Northeast San Fernando Valley

The Northeast San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles is the second largest community of Mexicans and Central Americans in the United States with 500,000 people. Yet, until 2001 when Tia Chuchaâs opened itâs doors, the Northeast Valley had no trade bookstores, movie houses, art galleries, or decent cultural spaces. The book explores twenty years of how the lack of neighborhood cultural spaces adversely affects struggling families and communities, and how the example of Tia Chuchaâs inspires a cultural awakening and a revival of the economy and community spirit. The book speaks to a need for a national art s policy of cultural spaces, arts education, independent bookstores, public art projects, and more.

Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event. For more information on the event please contact Dr. Denise Sandoval at denise.sandoval@csun.edu.

A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut

The Man Who Loved Women (L'homme qui amait les femmes)  (1977, 120 mins.) 

Witty, incisive and masterfully narrated, The Man Who Loved Women is one of Truffaut's most entertaining yet introspective and melancholic films. Read by many as a thinly disguised stand-in for Truffaut, recently deceased Bertand (Charles Denner), is a man who simply couldn't keep his mind off of women. In The Man Who Loved Women, Truffautmixes comedy with scenes of gentle poignancyto make profound comments about love, sex, fidelity, and the underlying differences between men and women.

A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut

Bed and Board (Domicile conjugal)  (1970, 100 mins.)

Love on the Run (L'amour en fuite)  (1979, 94 mins.) 

A double feature of the fourth and fifth installment in Truffaut's chronicle of the ardent, anachronistic Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Leaud). Lightly comic, with a touch of the burlesque, Bed and Board is a bittersweet look at the travails of young married life and the fine line between adolescence and adulthood. In Love on the Run, we find Doinel, now in his thirties, convivially concluding his marriage, enjoying moderate success as a novelist, and clinging to his romantic fantasies. A pair of Truffaut gems.

Thursday Nights at the Cinematheque

A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut

The Last Metro  (Le dernier metro)  (1980, 131 mins.) 

Gerard Depardieu and Catherine Deneuve star as members of a French theater company living under the German occupation during World War II in Truffaut's gripping, humanist character study. Against all odds -- a Jewish theater manager in hiding; a leading man who's in the Resistance; increasingly restrictive Nazi oversight -- the troupe believes the show must go on. Equal parts romance, historical tragedy, and even comedy, The Last Metro is Truffaut's ultimate tribute to art overcoming adversity.

Ideological Conflicts as Opposing Moral Visions

Why do our moral convictions feel like objective truth, and yet differ so greatly across individuals and cultures?  How do shared ideological narratives influence our sense of right and wrong, and how do our moral convictions influence our political choices?  This talk will explore these questions with an investigation of the interactions between morality and ideology.

This event is scheduled for December 7, 2012, 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. in Sierra Hall 322.

A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut

Confidentially Yours (Vivement dimanche!)  (1983, 110 mins.) 

In this light but nearly faultless homage to the classic film noir thriller, Truffaut showcases one of his favorite actresses, Fanny Ardant, as Barbara, an enterprising secretary in love with her boss (Jean-Louis Trintignant) but up against clearing him of murder. To resolve the mystery and reveal the real killer, she has no choice but to betray the man she loves. Truffaut's final film, Confidentially Yours is an enduring expression of the director's long fascination with the American cinema.
