SUNY GENESEO

CALENDAR OF EVENTS FOR NOV. 4-10

THURSDAY, NOV. 4:

FILM: The Alan Lutkus International Film Series presents the film "Ali: Fear Eats the Soul." In German with English subtitles. When an elderly white German cleaning lady and a much younger Arab immigrant fall in love and marry, they are faced with outrage and intolerance from all corners of their respective communities. An incisive look at how society attempts to enforce conformity and regulate desire, this classic by noted director Rainer Werner Fassbinder is also a miraculously charming and gentle film. The discussant is Daniel Humphrey of the English department. 7 p.m., Bailey Hall Auditorium (135). Free and open to the public.

LEDERER GALLERY EXHIBIT: The Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery in Brodie Hall presents an exhibit by fabric artist Mary Ann Scarborough of Rochester and cibachrome photographer Mark Abrahamson of Seattle. The gallery is open daily from 2-4:30 p.m. and Thursdays 12-8 p.m. Free and open to the public. The exhibit runs through Sunday, Dec. 5.

LOCKHART GALLERY EXHIBIT: The Lockhart Gallery at McClellan House presents "Embracing Eatonville." This exhibition is being organized by internationally renowned photographer Carrie Mae Weems and features her work, as well as that of acclaimed photographers Dawoud Bey, Lonnie Graham and Deborah Willis. The show is conceived of as a photographic survey of the people and history of Eatonville, Fla., the nation’s first incorporated African-American town and the home of celebrated Harlem Renaissance author Zora Neale Hurston. The four photographers respond to the town and its residents in diverse ways, ranging from Bey’s straightforward, almost anthropological portraits to Weems’s more poetic, evocatively personal meditations. The gallery is open daily from 2-5 p.m. and Thursdays 12-8 p.m. Free and open to the public. The exhibit runs through Friday, Dec. 10.
