Thursday Nights at the Cinematheque

A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut

Shoot the Piano Player (Tirez sur le pianiste) (1960, 92 mins.) 

Truffaut explores the many possibilities of cinema in this, his most playful film. Part thriller, part comedy, part tragedy, Shoot the Piano Player relates the adventures of the once famous but now reserved and mild-mannered piano player Charlie (Charles Aznavour) as he stumbles into the criminal underworld and a whirlwind love affair. Loaded with gags, guns, clowns, and thugs, this loving and razor-sharp homage to the American gangster film is pure nouvelle vague.

Thursday Nights at the Cinematheque

A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut

Jules and Jim  (Jules et Jim)  (1962, 105 mins.) 

Truffaut's early masterpiece Jules and Jim charts the relationship between two friends (Oskar Werner, Henri Serre) and the object of their mutual obsession over the course of twenty-five years. Jeanne Moreau stars as the alluring and willful young woman at the center of one of cinema's most captivating romantic triangles. An exuberant and poignant meditation on freedom, loyalty, and the fortitude of love, Jules and Jim was a worldwide smash upon its release and remains as audacious and entrancing today.

Going Green and Global for a Golden Future?

3:30 pm - 5:00 pm - Sierra Center, Colleagues Room, 2nd Floor

The present Information Revolution may appear unique, without precedent. However, using a historical perspective, the talk will chart out the development of past industrial revolutions--steam coal and iron, steel and heavy engineering, railways, and automobiles to illustrate trends and similarities. There is a resemblance between railways, canals and the Internet, in that they are all 'Connection technologies.' They connect places, they connect businesses. Building on this analogy, the talk will establish that the current economic depression, at least in the West, is a phase in the development of the Internet revolution and that investment in green technologies and low carbon infrastructure will lead to new opportunities.

Speaking will be Tariq S. Durrani, research professor at University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland, and 2013 IEEE President Elect, 2010-2011 vice president, IEEE Educational Activities Board.

Thursday Nights at the Cinematheque

A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut

The Soft Skin  (La peau douce)  (1964, 113 mins.) 

Arguably one of Truffaut's boldest and most experimental films, The Soft Skin is a dark and introspective study of revenge and adultery involving Pierre (Jean Desailly), a well-known literary figure, and his tragic love affair with flight attendant Nicole (Francoise Dorleac). A radical departure from his earlier films, The Soft Skin nonetheless occupies an essential and important place in Truffaut's body of work, anticipating the darker, more intimate romantic dramas that would come to dominate his later years.

What if people were being expelled from the University based on being a religious minority? What if those same people could also be barred from ever attending any institution for higher learning? What if professors could face arrest for simply providing education in an informal setting to those barred from Universities?

Right now in Iran, members of the Baha'i community are facing among the most egregious human rights violations in the world today. Education Under Fire is a campaign to raise attention to this gross violation of human rights.

On Thursday, September 20th, we will screen the 30 minute documentary, Education Under Fire at 7 p.m. at USU (University Student Union) Theater. A panel discussion will follow.

Fahrenheit 451  (1966, 112 mins.) 

Truffaut's first color film and the only one to be recorded entirely in English, Fahrenheit 451 is an adaptation of Ray Bradbury's acclaimed novel of the same name. In a dystopian future, fireman Montag (Oskar Werner) is charged with burning all printed matter yet soon comes to question his job thanks to the inspiration of a young woman (Julie Christie in a duel role as both the young woman and Montag's wife). A mysterious and haunting work that remains one of Truffaut's most evocative and well-known films.

http://www.ecs.csun.edu/ecsdean/docs/Miaoulis20121001.pdf

Although humans make the majority of the objects we interact with and use during our day-to-day lives, the current school curriculum focuses very little on how our human-made, or designed world, is made. Pens, cars, pills, buildings are all technologies and the results of the engineering design process. Most educators claim that science is the discipline that teaches children about the world around them. However science curricula focus only on the natural world which constitutes only a minor part of our day to day life. Children spend enormous amounts of time learning things that are totally irrelevant to their lives and become adults who are technologically illiterate. Ioannis (Yannis) Miaoulis, President and Director of the Museum of Science in Boston will discuss how our educational system has missed the point and talk about a major initiative to introduce the human made world and engineering in schools nationwide.

11:00 am
THE KEYNOTE ADDRESS: Emory Douglas, Former Minister of Culture, Black Panther Party for Self-Defense
Emory Douglas was the Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party from 1967 until the Party disbanded in the 1980s. His art was featured in most issues of the newspaper The Black Panther and has become an iconic representation of the struggles of the Party during the 1960s and 1970s. The San Francisco Chronicle reported that Douglas branded the militant-chic Panther image decades before the concept became commonplace, [inciting] the disenfranchised to action, portraying the poor with genuine empathy, not as victims but as outraged, unapologetic and ready for a fight.

1:00 pm

41st and Central: The Untold Story of the L.A. Black Panthers Dir. Gregory Everett (2011) 120 minutes

Passin' It On: The Black Panthers' Search for Justice Dir. Jon Valadez (2006) 57 minutes
Offering startling insight into the role of the Black Panther Party in a social revolution, and the NYPD and the FBI's devious targeting of one of the organization's most fervent leaders--Dhoruba Bin Wahad (born Richard Moore). Amid a national program of FBI-led oppression against the Panthers, Dhoruba was framed on flimsy evidence of the wounding and grotesque disfigurement of two police officers and sent to prison. After trials and mistrails, incarceration and eventual acquittal 19 years later, a still-impassioned Dhoruba, his attorneys, and other Panthers finally tell this incredible tale.
Post-screening Q&A with Hank Jones, former member of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense

12:30 pm
COINTELPRO 101 Freedom Archives (2011) 60 minutes
COINTELPRO may not be a well-understood acronym but its meaning and continuing impact are absolutely central to understanding the government's history of repression against progressive movements. COINTELPRO is both a formal program of the FBI and a term frequently used to describe a conspiracy among government agencies local, state, and federal, to destroy movements for self-determination and liberation for Black, Brown, Asian, and Indigenous struggles, as well as mount an institutionalized attack against allies of these movements and other progressive organizations.

Thursday Nights at the Cinematheque

A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut

The Bride Wore Black  (La mariee etait en noir)  (1968, 107 mins.) 

The Bride Wore Black was Truffaut's first and most obvious homage to Alfred Hitchcock. Jeanne Moreau stars as a woman whose fiance is viciously murdered by five men. Utilizing a series of disguises, the cool-customer Moreau tracks down all five culprits, sexually enslaves them, and then engineers their deaths. The Bride Wore Black is a stylish thriller that supplies suspense and black comedy to superb effect and provides an interesting insight into Truffaut's fervent admiration of Hitchcock.

Antoine and Colette  (Antoine et Colette) (1962, 32 mins.) 

Jean-Pierre Leaud returns in Stolen Kisses, the third installment in the Antoine Doinel series. It is now 1968, and the mischievous and perpetually love-struck Doinel has been dishonorably discharged from the army and released onto the streets of Paris, where he embarks on a series of misadventures. Whimsical, nostalgic, and irrepressibly romantic, Stolen Kisses is Truffaut's timeless ode to the passion and impetuosity of youth. Together with Truffaut's Antoine Doinel short film, Antoine and Colette.

A Retrospective on the films of Francois Truffaut

Two English Girls  (Les deux anglaises et le continent) (1971, 130 mins.) 

One of the great, but lesser known Truffaut films, Two English Girls is a harrowing and poignant study in repressed desire. Jean-Pierre Leaud is Claude, a Frenchman who on a turn-of-the-century trip to Wales meets the Brown sisters, Anne and Muriel. Over the next 20 years, affections between Claude and the sisters shift, but consummation of any romantic feelings is ultimately blocked. Overlaid with numerous autobiographical references, Truffaut personally considered the film his masterpiece.

11:00 am - 12:15 pm - University Student Union Theater (USU)
http://www.ecs.csun.edu/ecsdean/docs/Kulkarni20121025.pdf

Distilleries manufacture alcohol from molasses which is wastewater generated in cane sugar industry. The wastewater generated in the distillation process is called spent wash which is highly organic and polluting in nature. As per the norms of Pollution Control Board, distilleries have to follow “Zero discharge policy”. Traditionally, anaerobic lagoons followed by composting treatment is used. Though this method conforms the norms of Pollution Control Boards, it emits methane a Green House Gas responsible for global warming and climate change. The presentation discusses a case study of a distillery in Maharashtra State which is implementing a project in which instead of anaerobic lagoons, bio-digester is used for the treatment of spent wash. The biogas generated in the treatment is captured and burnt to generate electrical energy. Attempts are being made to get financial assistance to this project in the form of Carbon Credits under Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). The paper also discusses the project cycle of CDM.

This year CSUN's Sustainability Day event focuses on issues surrounding Climate Change and is taking place on Thursday, October 25 from 11 am - 3:30pm in the USU Theatre.  The day will include a talk at 2:00 pm by Naomi Oreskes, author of 'Merchants of Doubt' and Professor of History and Science Studies at UC San Diego., who will be introduced by Provost Hellenbrand. The day's events include three sessions which coincide with class times.

The first session (11:00am- 12:15pm) will be a talk given by Dr. Milind Kulkarni, Director of Engineering Institutes at ITM Group of Institutions in Mumbai, India. He will discuss energy challenges in the developing world, in India in particular, and a sustainable development project in which waste water is used to generate renewable energy using bio-digestion.

The second session (12:30-1:45pm) will show a documentary film, "There Once Was an Island", which provides a case study about a tiny atoll in Papua New Guinea facing escalating climate-related impacts. This will be followed by a facilitated discussion on the issues raised.

In the third session (2:00-3:15pm) Naomi Oreskes will talk about the subject of her book -- how a handful of scientists obscured the truth on issues from tobacco smoke to global warming.

Thursday Nights at the Cinematheque

A Retrospective of the films of François Truffaut

Day for Night  (La nuit americaine)  (1973, 115 mins.) 

Day for Night was Truffaut's loving and humorous tribute to the collective insanity of making a movie. The film details the making of a family drama about the tragedy that follows when a young French man introduces his parents to his new British wife. Truffaut gently satirizes his own films with the drama's overwrought storyline, but the real focus is on the chaos behind the scenes. Starring Jacqueline Bisset and Jean-Pierre Leaud, Day for Night went on to win the 1973 Oscar for Best Foreign Film.

This truth is at the core of the play. Of Mice and Men continues to fascinate audiences and artists as it speaks to our shared human condition.

To our audience: This production of Of Mice and Men adheres to the format of the original script and includes language that some may find objectionable.
