KRZYSZTOF KIESLOWSKI RETROSPECTIVE

Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski was a leading director of documentaries, television and feature films from the 1970s to the 1990s. The social and moral themes of contemporary times became the focus of his many significant films and his unique humanist treatment of those themes secured his place as one of the greatest of modern film directors.

The Scar (Blizna), 1976 -- 112 mins.

Kieslowski's feature film debut tells the story of the shifting fortunes of a massive factory project in rural postwar Poland. The Scar is filled with the vivid characters, lucid imagery and the incisive but even-handed social criticism that would define his early films.

The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow during the transitional period of perestroika in the late 1980s. At this moment in history, many of the great dancers and choreographers of the former Soviet Unions ballet institutions were exercising their new-found creative freedom by starting new, vibrant companies dedicated not only to the timeless tradition of classical Russian Ballet, but to invigorate this tradition as the Russians began to accept and embrace new developments in dance around the world. This breathtaking presentation of Sleeping Beauty set to the music of Tchaikovsky upholds the grand national tradition of Russian ballet.

Stories for Social Change

4:30 pm - 6:30 pm - Valley Performaning Arts Center, Lecture Auditorium Room 181

The Power of Stories for Social Change

The storytelling of everyday people can serve as a living record of the human experience.  By creating oral and visual histories we remove the filter of an accepted narrative about an individual's or a community's experience.

Stories surround us but what do they do beyond entertain us?  How do stories bring about social change?  Explore the use of stories in the classroom and in the community and bring the results to a day of "stories for social change" in public education.

Panelist: 

Dr. Stacy Holman Jones - Storytelling in Performance

Dr. Marcella De Veaux - Storytelling in the Classroom

Dr. Theresa White - Storytelling in Documentary Film

The panel will be moderated by Nate Thomas.

This event is scheduled for Wednesday, February 20, 2013 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the VPAC Lecture Auditorium, Room 181.

8:30 am - 3:30 pm - Northridge Center

Announcing the Department of Social Work's 4th Annual DIVERSITY DAY!

Hosted by the Department of Social Work featuring keynote speaker:  Tchicaya Missamou

Born into the Congolese wilderness, Tchicaya Missamou became a child solder at age 11.  As a horrific civil war loomed across his country, Missamou began using his militia connections to ferry jewels, cash, computers, and white diplomats out of the country.  By 17, he was rich.  By 18, he was a hunted man, his house destroyed, his family brutalized in front of him by his own militia.  By 19, he'd left behind everything he'd ever known, escaping to Europe and, eventually to America.  Incredibly, that was only the start of his journey.

Social Work's Fourth Annual Diversity Day will focus on the resilience of trauma survivors and provide education on evidence based trauma-informed interventions and assessment utilizing intersectionality and strengh-based perspectives.

How do we reconcile them in our individual lives and in society? Dr. Jennifer Thompson, (Ph.D., Ethics and Society, Emory University), the new Maurice Amado Assistant Professor of Applied Jewish Ethics and Civic Engagement at CSUN, will help us explore these issues with the help of a variety of Jewish ethical texts.
