Upcoming April Events:

Award-winning filmmaker Lynne Sachs at Antioch College

When: Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Time: Wednesday: 4:30 pm
Where: Antioch College, McGregor Hall, room 113

Award-winning filmmaker Lynne Sachs will visit Antioch College April 22 & 23. A 2014 recipient of the Guggenheim fellowship, Lynne Sachs has made boundary-crossing, genre-defying films for over twenty-five years. Blending observation and montage, performance and poetics, Sachs’ work challenges the conventions of documentary, of storytelling, and of remembrance.

On Tuesday, April 22, at 6:30pm, Lynne Sachs will show several short films in the context of a master class, as she discusses evolutions in her filmmaking practice and varied approaches to nonfiction storytelling.

On Wednesday, April 23, at 4:30pm, Sachs will present other films and audio works as she deconstructs her unconventional approach to sound in documentary.

Immediately following this sound-specific master class, at 6:00pm, Sachs’ feature-length film Your Day is My Night will screen, followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker.

All events are open to the public, and will be held in McGregor Hall room 113, Antioch College.

We will grill grass-fed beef as the featured item as well as free-range chicken and whatever the farms have in season will also go on the grill. Please remember to bring your own salads as well as drinks (wine, etc). We will provide a “wine reception” for a toast and welcome. We encourage everyone to bring picnic blankets and/or chairs to spread out and enjoy the spring evening.

As a new experience, we’re holding this event in the old barn at the Yellow Springs Country Bed & Breakfast. This tucked-away gem is a gorgeous spot just outside of town. Directions and parking details will be sent in a confirmation email to those who confirm their attendance.

Kurt will introduce the featured wines from Ohio and Argentina, and afterwards we will invite everyone to the table. Here, we will serve local, grass-fed beef grilled on the spot in a traditional, hardwood, Argentine style by the “parrillero” Mariano. Dinner also includes seasonal greens from Flying Mouse Farms and Patchwork Gardens, along with a selection of red wines.

To finish, we will invite guests to an espresso or port wine with petits fours made from scratch with Flying Mouse maple syrup, and discuss the philosophy of sustainable, local gastronomy with an introduction to the local farms featured in the evening’s meal.

Tickets are on sale at The Emporium (233 Xenia Ave (Route 68) in downtown Yellow Springs). Tickets are $55 per person. Space is limited to 25 people.

Compulsive hoarding is a disorder characterized by difficulty discarding items that appear to most people to have little or no value. This leads to an accumulation of clutter such that living and workspaces cannot be used for their intended purposes. The clutter can result in serious threats to the health and safety of the sufferer and those who live nearby.
