  • Location: MoCADA
  • Description: Their stories are numerous, some similar and others flavored by particular struggles in specific sites of discontent. Overall, their attitudes are of stubborn resilience, hope, and survival in environments desperate for their labor but resentful of their presence. With over 100 photographs and videos from Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, Germany, Holland, Czech and Britain, the exhibition, organized by NYU's Africana Studies Department, follows some remarkably resilient immigrants on their uncertain sojourn on makeshift, intermittently powered fishing boats from West Africa, through the rigors of European immigration control, into the interstices of European society. These works of art are created by award winning photographers, photo-journalists, and human rights activists all over Europe including Juan Medina (Spain), Alfredo Muňoz de Oliveira (Portugal), Francesco Cocco, Angelo Aprile, Elisa Cozzarini, Marco Ambrosi, Matteo Danesin, Aldo Sodoma and Stefano Renna (Italy).

  • Fellini, la Grande Parade

  • Dec 28, 2009 to Jan 17, 2010
  • Location: Le Jeu de Paume -Paris ( jardin des tuileries, concorde)
  • Description: Tenter une exposition Fellini, c’est revenir aux sources de la création fellinienne, en étudiant et en donnant à voir les processus de transformation, de modification, d’emprunt ou d’empilement de strates où s’entremêlent des éléments filmiques, des documents photographiques, la mise en page de l’événement dans les magazines, des images télévisuelles ou des œuvres d’artistes…L’exposition s’affirme sur le terrain de la pluridisciplinarité dont la tentative réside dans l’élaboration d’une grille de lecture renouvelée du cinéma de Fellini.L’exposition du Jeu de Paume lève le voile sur une partie des mécanismes de la création fellinienne en rendant compte du processus d’absorption du réel, art inégalé de Fellini.Elle se compose essentiellement de photographies, de dessins de Fellini, d'affiches originales de films, de magazines d’époque et d’extraits de films.

  • Location: Maysles Institute
  • Description: Agence France Presse calls the film “An historic document of incalculable value, but also a superbly shot work of cinema.” says one of the best docs of 2009.Dir. Anne Aghion, 2009, 80min.Could you ever forgive the people who slaughtered your family? In 1994, Rwanda’s Hutu populace was incited to wipe out the country’s Tutsi minority, with 800,000 lives claimed in 100 days.. In 1999, the government began the Gacaca (ga-CHA-cha)—open-air hearings with citizen-judges meant to try their neighbors and rebuild the nation. Through their fear and anger, accusations and defenses, blurry truths, inconsolable sadness and hope for life renewed, follow this emotional journey to co-existence. Winner of the Human Rights Watch 2009 Nestor Almendros Prize for courage in filmmaking and an Official Selection at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.

  • Location: Talay Restaurant 701 West 135th Street at 12th Ave
  • Description: The devastating images from Haiti’s capital have been a call to action for many New Yorkers who want to lend their help and assistance. My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Haiti and to the Haitian community here in New York City, many of whom are now seeking information about their loved ones.Relief efforts are already underway by the United Nations and hundreds of countries. However, as details of what exactly is needed in Haiti are yet to be unveiled, New Yorkers have an opportunity to leave a lasting, concrete contribution to the embattled nation in this time of tragedy. My office, spearheaded by Deputy Borough President Rosemonde Pierre-Louis, a Haitian American, have quickly organized together with The Haitian Roundtable a major fundraising event to provide the US fund for UNICEF, one of the organizations leading the relief efforts on the scene, with much needed funding for the purchase of supplies and equipment that address Haiti’s most urgent needs.New Yorkers for Ha
