Exhibit: ‘Inshallah’ by Dima Gavrysh at Pictura Gallery

11:00 am to 07:00 pm
Pictura Gallery (122 W. 6th St.)

Dima Gavrysh opens a space where the boundary between photojournalism and fine art photography becomes unclear, and perhaps unnecessary. In 2009, he embedded with the U.S. Army in Afghanistan as a photojournalist for the Associated Press. In visually representing the war, Dima moved from direct reportage to a more emotional presentation of his experiences. Eventually, his work evolved into abstracted images that reflect the complicated fog of war. The resulting black and white photographs are personal and haunting, and in their obscurity, they tell a different kind of truth. The exhibition, Inshallah, opens at Pictura on January 4th and will include a set of black and white prints and a video installation. The exhibition will be on view until January 26.

Pictura Gallery is open Tuesday – Saturday, 11 am – 7 pm.

IU Cinema Presents: ‘Tabu’

07:00 pm
IU Cinema (1213 E. 7th Street)

A love story told in two unique parts, “Tabu” is, quite simply, a film unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Deftly moving between contemporary Portugal, colonial Africa and the landscape of dreams, director Miguel Gomes conjures an enthralling story of obsession, memory and dangerous forbidden romance.

In part one, ‘Paradise Lost’, we follow the seemingly ordinary daily life of a devout Lisbon woman, Pilar (Teresa Madruga) and her attempts to support and console her extravagant and bitter neighbour Aurora (Laura Soveral), who spends her day gambling at the local casino and whose grip on reality is clearly becoming tenuous; she’s convinced her stoic maid Santa is secretly practicing voodoo spells against her.

When Aurora’s health takes a turn, a stranger is summoned to her deathbed and it gradually transpires this man is Gian Luca, the love of her life from the distant past. His confession to Pilar of their doomed youthful affair forms the basis of the film’s second extraordinary chapter, ‘Paradise’, set 50 years prior at an African farm in the foothills of Mount Tabu…

Playfully interpreting and rearranging history, Gomes’ film is somehow both technically and narratively subversive and yet inescapably romantic, in no small way thanks to the sensuous black and white cinematography and incredible score and sound design. Where part one portrays a society wallowing in nostalgia, the second propels a dramatic shift in tone and emotional power, delivering everything the characters – and we – may dream of, and live for. Portuguese language with English subtitles.
(2K DCP Presentation)

Winner – Berlin Film Festival – FIPRESCI Jury Prize and Alfred Baeur Prize for Artistic Innovation.

The Comedy Attic (123 S. Walnut St.)

Henry Phillips will be performing at The Comedy Attic. January 10, 11 and 12. See website for all showtimes and ticket options.

“If you frequent The Comedy Attic, you know we generally shy away from gimmick comics- ventriloquists, impressionists, musicians, jugglers, etc. Henry Phillips plays guitar in his act, and like Mike MacRae is to impressionists, Henry is the gold standard of musician comics. Sarah Silverman says his 2010 film Punching The Clown is ‘The Best Movie About Comedy I’ve Seen So Far.'” – The Comedy Attic
