Sonoma Film Institute: Buddy

“Heddy Honigmann, who has had retrospectives at MoMA and the Centre Pompidou, is the ne plus ultra of documentary filmmakers. With BUDDY, she turns her unerring eye to the relationship between dogs and people. Forget the ubiquitous “emotional support dog,” everyone’s favorite companion. These six pooches do amazing things: they open and close drawers, turn their mistress over in bed, remove paper from the computer printer, push a syringe into flesh, put on a woman’s socks, and pull up her blanket. They soothe a veteran with PTSD and a severely autistic child. With characteristic reserves of warmth and humor, Honigmann gives the dogs equal face time – a film about love, courage and trust, both human and canine.” – Film Forum

However, on the night Jack decides to give up, the whole world is momentarily hit with a massive blackout during which Jack is hit by a bus. Upon regaining consciousness, Jack learns to his astonishment that he is apparently now the only one who knows the music of the Beatles. Realizing this improbable opportunity, Jack begins playing the music of the greatest of the rock bands, claiming it as his own. It pays off quickly and Jack becomes a worldwide musical sensation. However, Jack finds himself drifting away from Ellie, only realizing his love for her when she has become intimidated by his success, which depends on a blatant plagiarization that no one could find out. Now, Jack must make a fundamental moral decision about his music to satisfy his conscience as he decides what he truly needs.

Sonoma Bach – Major Works, A Human Requiem | Danielle Sampson, Paul Murray, Sonoma Bach Choir, Live Oak Baroque Orchestra

We present Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem in Joachim Linckelmann’s wonderful new version for reduced orchestra, allowing us to perform the piece at a scale appropriate to our beloved Schroeder Hall, an ideal venue in which to experience the direct emotional and spiritual appeal of this amazing work. Rather than setting to music the traditional Mass for the Dead, Brahms made his own selection of biblical texts, with special emphasis upon comfort and hope for those who survive. In a letter, he said that he would have been glad to call the piece ‘A Human Requiem’—and this seems a comment upon his music’s power to provide light and hope and solace to all of us even in the midst of deepest sorrow.

Sonoma Film Institute presents, Hale County This Morning, This Evening

“The American stranger knows Blackness as a fact—even though it is fiction,’ says writer-director RaMell Ross. For his visionary and political debut feature, which premiered to great acclaim at Sundance in 2018, Ross spent five years intimately observing African American families living in Hale County, Alabama. It’s a region made unforgettable by Walker Evans and James Agee’s landmark 1941 photographic essay Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, which documented the impoverished lives of white sharecropper families in Alabama’s Dust Bowl during the Great Depression. Ross’s poetic return to this place shows changed demographics, and depicts people resilient in the face of adversity and invisibility. HALE COUNTY THIS MORNING, THIS EVENING introduces a distinct and powerful new voice in American filmmaking.” – New Directors/New Films (2018, 76 min.)  Free Admission

Director RaMell Ross will appear to introduce the film and for Q&A after this (Friday) screening.

BachGrounder pre-concert talk at 7:25pm

Our concert design begins with two collections of miniatures—Leonhard Lechner’s Deutsche Sprüche von Leben und Tod (1606) and Hugo Distler’s Totentanz (c.1935)—separated by centuries, but complementary in their efforts to describe how the world works, and how to have hope. Each consists of tiny, koan-like pieces on a single thought or intuition. We weave these pieces together with larger motets from J.H. Schein’s magnificent Fontana d’Israel (1623) and organ meditations from Yale’s Neumeister manuscript by J.S. Bach and his cousin Johann Michael Bach. Over and again we are offered lessons of how to find light in the midst of gloom, and how to shine such light out to the world.

Spring Dance Concert 2019

Breaking all the rules, SSU dance students perform five new works from nationally acclaimed guest artists Larry Arrington, Monica Bill Barnes, Erin Landry and SSU Dance faculty Christine Cali and Kristen Daley. Specializing in experimental performance, Barnes enjoys “bringing dance where it doesn’t belong” while Arrington’s work gravitates toward the “subversively political and accidentally hilarious.” In residency this spring, Landry is known for her powerful, mesmerizing choreography with contemporary, Middle Eastern and Afro-Caribbean influences.

The newly formed SSU Dance Alumni Collective “CCMC” also makes a guest appearance, presenting a new work at the final two performances April 27 and 28.

Sonoma Film Institute presents, The Gleaners and I

Agnès Varda made 2000's most acclaimed non-fiction film - a self-described "wandering-road documentary." Beginning with the famous Jean-François Millet painting of women gathering wheat left over from a harvest, she focuses her ever-seeking eye on gleaners: those who scour already-reaped fields for the odd potato or turnip. Her investigation leads us from forgotten corners of the French countryside to off-hours at the green markets of Paris, following those who insist on finding a use for that which society has cast off, whether out of necessity or activism. Varda's own ruminations on her life as a filmmaker (a gleaner of sorts) give her a connection to her subjects that creates a touching human portrait that the L.A. Weekly deemed "a protest film that's part social critique, part travelogue, but always an unsentimental celebration of human resilience." (82 min., in French w/English subtitles)
