OCT. 02 THU 7 pm:


The Effect of Gamma Rays on

Man in the Moon Marigolds (1972) 100min.

With Joanne Woodward, Nell Potts (Elinor Newman), Roberta Wallach

“Life’s been a real bitch to Beatrice Hunsdorfer. And vice versa.”

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Paul Zindel, this is another critically acclaimed joint effort of husband and wife team Newman and Woodward. Produced and directed by Newman, Woodward portrays the eccentric young widow who is raising her two disparate daughters in an atmosphere of bitterness, hatred and over-protection that threatens their very growth and development. The title of the movie reflects the mothers’ anger at her daughter’s science teacher, when her daughter’s experiment shows how radiation kills marigolds, but sometimes causes them to grow more beautiful. This experiment becomes a metaphor for her own life, as she struggles to bloom in a household deadened by her mother’s alcoholism and her sister’s lethargy.

Stealing America: Vote by Vote

(Dorothy Fadiman/documentary/2008)


It is our right as Americans to vote, but in the era of hanging chads and malfunctioning voting machines, how can we be sure that those votes really count? For anyone who ever wondered

just how electronic votes are tallied and hope susceptible voting machines are to tampering, Dorothy Fadiman’s eye-opening documentary (which features interviews with the likes of Jon Stewart, John F. Kennedy, Jr. and Stephen Colbert) is sure to make you take pause the

next time you step into a voting booth and cast your ballot.

Stealing America : Vote by Vote mounts its case with hardheaded numerical logic.

The result will leave you wondering if we’re in for a fresh recount disaster this fall.”

The Sugar Babies

The Plight of the Children of Agricultural Workers in the Sugar Industry in the Dominican Republic

(Amy Serrano/documentary/2007) Narrated by Edwidge Danticat

Until now, the disturbing remnants of colonial slavery were carefully hidden in paradise…..While exposing those who continue to profit, the feature-length documentary film “The Sugar Babies” vividly explores the lives of the descendants of the first Africans delivered to the islandof Hispaniola for the bittersweet commodity that once ruled the world.  These very same people continue to be trafficked to work in sugar under circumstances that

can only be considered modern day slavery. The Sugar Babies” examines the moral price

of sugar — present and past — from the perspective of the conditions surrounding the children of sugar cane cutters of Haitian ancestry in the Dominican Republic, and the continuing denial

of their basic human rights. 

WINNER: Jury Prize for Best Documentary, Delray Beach Film Festival

Official Selection: Montreal International Film Festival, New Orleans Human Rights Film Festival, United Nations Through Women’s Eyes Film Festival
