Itzhak Perlman: a master tells his story UCSB Arts & Lectures

At the Center of Santa Barbara’s Cultural Conversation • www.VoiceSB.com

Review by Daniel Kepl / VOICE

Photo by David Bazemore

OST EVERYBODY, CLASSICAL MUSIC FAN OR NOT, recognizes the name of Israeli American violinist Itzhak Perlman. He’s the winner of 16 Grammys, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, four Emmys, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, to single out a handful of the panoply of worldwide honors Perlman has garnered over the course of his career. And, the artist is celebrating his 75th birthday with an intimate touring program of delicious personal reminiscences, historic videos from his legendary life, and in-person chats with his wife Toby about the struggles and triumphs of a musical genius who overcame polio and the prejudices of an insensitive world to become arguably the greatest violinist of this age. Touched immediately by the warmth of Perlman’s sense of humor and wealth of anecdote, a sold-out Granada Theatre audience in Santa Barbara on January 21st melted with laughter and applause on several occasions as he described Violinist Itzhak Perlman with his longtime collaborator Rohan de Silva with often hilarious inuendo and anecdote, a childhood of tight financial resources in Palestine before it became the chair, empty for the first half of the presentation, then occupied new state of Israel and his life-changing immigration to the U.S. by Perlman’s wife Toby, for a segment of treasured memories to study at The Juilliard School with violinist Ivan Galamian, about career and family. A screen above and just behind the set where he met his wife and launched his spectacular solo career. facilitated Perlman’s monologue with a charming multimedia With his collaborator of the past several decades, Rohan de show of family pictures and home movies, while nestled in the Silva at the piano, Perlman performed bits of this and that, and middle of it all, was de Silva. chaperoned video clips from his Ed Sullivan Show television After a greeting to the audience and some initial banter, debut as a teen and other milestones captured for all time including a viewing of the famous television debut segment on on film and records, particularly performance clips from his Ed Sullivan’s Cavalcade of Stars in 1958 at the age of 13, Perlman earliest years as a newly discovered prodigy. got down to a little business with pianist de Silva, Fritz Kreisler’s Speaking to the audience from his spiffy, state-of-the-art brief but powerful Tempo di Minuetto in the Style of Pugnani, automated rocket ship (wheelchair would be a ridiculous followed by the first of several discussion points, beginning with misnomer) in a setting on the Granada stage a little like a family how young is too young for a child to begin studying the violin? living room - coffee table of sorts for his fiddle and it’s little Explaining hilariously, his family’s recognition of the dilemma brother, a tiny fiddle that he played as a four year old, an easy about their “young genius” and initial attempts to find a proper

fiddle teacher, Perlman produced a tiny violin and illustrated on the Lilliputian instrument, it’s never too early to begin learning. Addressing two of the core events of his life before marriage and children – the lifelong influence of violinist Jascha Heifetz on Perlman’s aesthetic and the polio epidemic of 1948 which claimed his legs’ mobility – Perlman recounted losing music for a year or so before coming back to the violin at around four, then played for us his parents’ favorite piece, Franz Schubert’s Serenade from the collection Schwanengesang (Swan Song) composed near the end of the composer’s tragic life. An account of his audition and acceptance to The Juilliard School to study with Ivan Galamian as a teenager, a move to the U.S. that transformed his career, and another Kreisler piece, Cambarich Memoir, which Perlman recalled performing often at Jewish fundraisers during his Juilliard days, was followed by an anecdote about dumb luck – his Carnegie Hall debut review, which ran on the front page of the New York Times on account of a newspaper strike – and the profound challenge his handicap presented to his career as he experienced the silent discrimination of presenters and audiences alike. A delightful treat, the appearance of Perlman’s wife Toby for some delicious banter about life and children (they have five) and a review of the 25th anniversary of The Perlman Music Program which Toby, a Juilliard grad herself, administers was followed by the evening’s denouement and perhaps the most moving story of all. Explaining his initial resistance to Steven Spielberg and John Williams’ invitation to play the violin part for the 1994 film Schindler’s List, Perlman recounted finally accepting the offer and recording the famous solo violin theme in Boston’s iconic Symphony Hall while watching a click track of the film. Saying simply, “I lost it,” Perlman described his emotional response to the film, then played for us Williams’ haunting tune. There was not a dry eye in the house.

David Bolton’s Production Company To Coordinate Live Super Bowl Spanish Language Broadcast For FOX Sports

L

IVE SUPER BOWL LIV COVERAGE FOR MILLIONS OF VIEWERS THROUGHOUT LATIN AMERICA will be produced by David Bolton, founder and president of Cultural Global Media, a Santa Barbara based television sports production company. Bolton, a Santa Barbara High grad, and his talented Cultural Global Media team of camera operators, sound mixers, and replay experts will handle nine straight hours of live Spanish-language Super Bowl programming Sunday from Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium, for FOX Sports Latin America. Cultural Global Media, which started in an office at the back of a Santa Barbara garage, now has a leading role at one of the world’s largest sporting events. Bolton, who began his television sports career locally at KEYT, David Bolton came up with the concept of the popular local Friday Football Focus show in 1986. It was the start of a 30 year career in live sports television. Sunday’s big game comes on the heels of CGM’s role producing the recent NFC Championship at San Francisco, and the previous weekend’s games at Green Bay and at the 49ers, for Fox Sports Latin America.

World Health Organization Announces Global Health Emergency

T

By Mark Whitehurst, PhD / VOICE

HE CORONAVIRUS HAS BEEN CONTRACTED BY TWO INDIVIDUALS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA and the World Health organization has declared a global health emergency. California health officials have said the immediate risk in California is low, where 17 people have been tested resulting in two confirmed cases, according to the California Department of Public Health. Americans fleeing Wuhan China have arrived at March Air Force Reserve Base in Riverside County. The 201 individuals, which arrived on Wednesday, are being monitored by California, county, and Federal health professionals. The Director-General of the World Health Organization, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, met with President Xi Jinping of the People’s Republic of China in Beijing, on Tuesday. They shared the latest information on the novel coronavirus 2019 (2019-nCoV) outbreak and reiterated their commitment to bring it under control, according to the WHO. “Stopping the spread of this virus both in China and globally is WHO’s highest priority,” said Dr. Ghebreyesus. “We appreciate the seriousness with which China is taking this outbreak, especially the commitment from top leadership, and the transparency they have demonstrated, including sharing data and genetic sequence of the virus.” Worldwide, more than 7,711 cases have been confirmed and 170 have died, according to the WHO. U.S. officials have set up screening checkpoints at Los Angeles International Airport, New York’s John F Kennedy International Airport, and San Francisco International Airport and new check points are being organized at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago and Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Atlanta this week. Individuals who have contracted the new coronavirus — known as 2019-nCoV — have reported symptoms like fever, coughing, and difficulty breathing. Those who have died were mostly elderly or otherwise unwell, according to Chinese officials. No deaths have been reported outside China, where travel for millions of people has been restricted.

Breakwater Flag Project...

I

January 31, 2020

February 11–16, 2020

By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE

N CASE YOU HAVEN’T NOTICED, the flags on the breakwater have been down. The wild winds of winter have done their work on the lightweight fabric needed to indicate wind direction for mariners on the water. The entire display has spent some QT (quality time) at the Flag Factory in Carpinteria where they were constructed at the end of last year in time for the harbor holiday events of 2019. They did their colorful best to welcome visitors and locals alike to the harbor, be part of the year end celebrations, and to capture the wind for the sailors at sea. And capture the wind they did – or perhaps the wind captured the flags! As everyone living on the South Coast knows, the ‘new normal’ weather has become unpredictable. Those of us living in Santa Barbara, and the thousands of tourists who visit, love the area and its ocean related activities. But, we are told, changes are in store in the coming decades as temperatures and sea levels rise, impacting the local ecology and human systems. According to a new study specific to Santa Barbara and a joint effort between researchers at UCSB, California Sea Grant, the U.S. Geological Survey, Scripps Institute of Oceanography, and an assortment of universities nationwide, weather challenges will include temperature changes, frequent weather related events, and rising sea levels. All of this is to say that our flags, although giving it their very best, are among the first indicators of these changes and unfortunately have paid the price. The battered appearance of the flags as last year drew to a close created a considerable amount of feedback from the community. This situation gave the Santa Barbara Yacht Club, as stewards of the flag project in partnership with the Waterfront Department, food for thought as to how to best resolve this issue. Over the years, the idea of having two generations of flags to facilitate a mid-year renewal had been considered, but tabled. The changes in weather, however, have caused the Club’s flag committee to reconsider this possibility and procedures are underway to implement this plan beginning at the end of 2020 for the year ahead. The cheerful multi-colored flags are a highlight in the harbor and having a mid year change with a set of new flags will allow the array to (hopefully) appear colorful and crisp for the entire year. Until November of this year, regardless of weather, the present flags will have to hang in! Thus their current stay at the Flag factory and the resulting empty flag poles on the breakwater. Extra special care will be taken during winter, spring, and summer months to remove and protect them during weather events. The Yacht Club continues to maintain the stewardship of the Flag Project on the Breakwater as a service to the community and hopefully you’ll see them back very soon. Stay tuned!

Y DAUGHTER TRACEY AND I started talking about the frightening new Coronavirus that had taken off so suddenly and is moving so quickly that it is headline news. It started in a part of China not frequented by Westerners. It couldn’t have hit at a worse time, just before the lunar Chinese New Year when everyone in China seems to be traveling. It is the big holiday of the year and tradition requires one to go home for the New Year, no matter how far. And no matter what their financial situation, Chinese people almost always have found a way to make the trip. By the time you read this, the figures will have multiplied tremendously. At this point the virus has spread from Wuhan as Ready for the soup pot far as Australia, Thailand, Taiwan, France, and the United States. The Wuhan government has stopped all transportation. Not only no planes flying out, but trains, buses, and cars cannot leave the area either. The original source of the virus was thought to have been from a wet marketplace that sold exotic meats and snakes. The snake theory took over fast – and Tracey and I started talking about snakes in our travels. The time in India when I was photographing a gypsy encampment in the distance, two men started chasing us with a basket holding a live cobra. We got locked into the car just in time with the cobra’s frightening tongue lashing out at the glass window. My main snake memory was from my second trip to China, in 1977, when I talked my way into going to a snake restaurant in Canton I knew still existed. In the pitch black street, suddenly two barely lit glass storefront windows appeared. In them were dead trees from which every branch hung a different type of very much alive snakes. My two friends didn’t want to get out of the government taxi, but he’s had his orders and didn’t speak English, so we had to stick to our plan. The women nearly fainted when the waiter who spoke some English explained the menu and even worse when after I had ordered (they each had a cup of tea) two boys Wuhan University came out carrying several live snakes on each arm for me to choose my snakes. I got into this; I was going through with it! So timidly I chose six for my Six Snake Soup and three for the snake and leak stew I’d ordered. When the soup arrived, it looked quite normal except they had cut the snake into long thin strips so you never ceased being aware of what you were eating. Dicing them would have helped. In case you want to try it, I do have a Snake Soup Recipe. It calls for one water snake, one large piece of python!!!, two chicken legs, one pork bone, one cup black fungus, two tablespoons of ginger, one cup dark soy sauce, corn starch, star anise, and of course water. Since A container of bottom fish I don’t imagine any of you will go on with the making of this, I’ll skip the directions. It cooks for about six hours, I will tell you. When visiting outdoor markets in small villages, it wasn’t unusual to see enamel pots filled with squirming snakes sitting right next to a pot of live scorpions. Then there would be all types of the most unattractive red meat, whose ancestry you didn’t want to know. The pots of fish were more appealing. I found one even attractive enough to photograph. “I once ate a chocolate covered ant!” Tracey injected. “What did it taste like?” I asked. Snake dish in China that displays snakes more “Chocolate!” appealingly

SBIFF: The Women’s Panel 2020

By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE

NCE AGAIN, Hollywood marketing maven Madelyn Hammond moderated a spectacular Women’s Panel at the Lobero Theatre on the last day of the 2020 Santa Barbara International Film Festival. The theatre was packed with eager fans anxious to hear the perspectives of women in key positions who have been recognized by the industry. The panel consisted of a comprehensive selection of artists: Julia Reichert (Director-American Factory), Rosana Sullivan (Director - Kitbull), Aneta Hickinbotham (Producer - Corpus Christi), Bonnie Arnold (Producer – How To Train Your Dragon 2), Anne Morgan (Makeup - Bombshell), Arianne Phillips (Costume Design - Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood), Mayes C. Rubeo (Costume Design - Jojo Rabbit), Regina Graves (Set Decorator - The Irishman), and Sarah Finn (Casting Director - The Lion King). Hammond opened the discussion by recounting promising statistics for increased involvement for women in the Industry. The year 2019 produced a trend definitely on the up-swing; in casting direction as high as 80 percent and in other areas averaging in the 20th to 30th percentiles, considerably up from previous years. “Women are doing well considering, and the trends signal even higher participation in the future,” she stated to a round of applause. Each woman on the panel described her experience on the film with which she had been involved, but all emphasized that the success of the project was always a collaborative effort of the entire team from the director to the artists and crew.

Arianne Phillips, costume designer for Once Upon A Time … In Hollywood stressed the importance of detail, even as small as a belt buckle, to give a film authenticity. In describing the character of Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie), the effort required to procure the replica of a fur coat Tate actually wore in real life was a story itself. Makeup artist for Bombshell, Anne Morgan, who focuses on creating the actor’s hair, described the female image – in this case, Megyn Kelly (Charlize Theron) and others like her – that FOX News wished to project to the world. Morgan shared with the fascinated audience a good deal of how the network functions and the requirement for its female correspondents. Julia Reichert, the director of the documentary film, American Factory spoke of the cultural education necessary for herself and her crew to understand the cultural shock and challenges of hundreds of men imported from high tech China to a factory in working class America. Just the stories related by the panelists would fill a series of feature length films! An appreciative audience applauded frequently during and after the discussions with a better understanding of how a character is created, an actor is cast, how a project comes to life, along with a women’s perspective on the film making process.

Has the Housing Market Recovered?

By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE

T

https://www.calculatedriskblog.com/2019/07/hvs-q2-2019-homeownership-and-vacancy.html

HE JUST-RELEASED SINGLE-FAMILY SALES GRAPH highlights a very important fact. New-home sales—especially for single-family residences—are back to historical levels last seen in 2000. The Great Recession and oversupply during the housing bubble caused so much damage to home building that it has taken housing ten years to recover. It augers well for economic growth this year with a fullyemployed economy and more younger homebuyers entering the housing market. So the question being asked is, has the homeownership rate finally bottomed, so that it is now again on an upward trend? Sales of new single-family homes in December were at an annual rate of 694,000, which is 23 percent above the December 2018

rate, reports HUD and the U.S. Census Bureau. Builders are finally catching up to the demand for more homes, in other words. There are many reasons the housing recovery has taken so long—there are too few homes in the affordable range, for starters. Entry-level homebuyers (usually from the millennial generation) have been slow to form new households and pay down their college debts, so they are currently buying just 30 to 31 percent of homes, when their percentage has been closer to 40 percent in the past. Builder confidence in the market for newly-built single-family homes has also increased five points to 76 in December, off an upwardly revised November reading, according to the latest National Association of Home Builders/ Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI). This is the highest reading

since June of 1999. “Builders are continuing to see the housing rebound that began in the spring,” said the NAHB, “supported by a low supply of existing homes, low mortgage rates, and a strong labor market. While we are seeing near-term positive market conditions with a 50-year low for the unemployment rate and increased wage growth, we are still underbuilding due to supplyside constraints like labor and land availability. Higher development costs are hurting affordability and dampening more robust construction growth.” The average rate of new home sales in 2019 was 681,000, which was 10.3 percent higher than 2018’s pace. The median sales price for new homes was $331,400 in December, which was up from the previous month. The government estimated there was a 5.7-month supply of new homes available for sale, up slightly from November as well, and is now back to the average supply of new homes on the market before the housing bubble. The Calculated Risk’s Bill McBride has commented on the homeownership rate since the Great Recession, and believes it is also returning to historical levels, per his graph. It is back to 64.1 percent of households, the average that has prevailed since the 1970s. There is still a housing shortage, however, with more than 500,000 homeless living on the streets, according to the latest data. To put it bluntly, this is a sign that not enough affordable, entry-level homes are being built; which means that many in the younger generations will still not be able to afford to buy.

President’s Corner

Let’s get Serious About Supply

T

At the Center of Santa Barbara’s Cultural Conversation | www.VoiceSB.com

By Staci Caplan, SBAOR President

HERE ARE MANY ISSUES NEEDING OUR ATTENTION, but none as crucial as the housing crisis. It affects the ability of our schools, hospitals, and businesses to attract and retain employees. Lack of housing affects the ability of our youth to live and work where they grow up. It affects the ability of parents to retire and remain close to family. It affects our economy, and the quality of our lives. Each year California falls 180,000 housing units short. Artificial market constraints are not a solution. The deficiencies compound year after year after year, putting extreme pressure on the rental market, and limiting housing opportunities for our veterans, seniors, and first-time buyers. The demand simply is not going away. We must get serious about supply. We must do it in a smart and balanced way, seeking solutions which preserve the unique heritage of our region, and the natural beauty which we hold dear. Supply and stewardship must go hand in hand. Staci Caplan Homeownership is in decline. The rate of homeownership in California is at 52 percent, the lowest it has been in decades. There is a lack of affordability, which underscores the supply and demand equation. “With housing supply dropping to the lowest level in nearly seven years, California experienced an unusual jump in its median price at the end of the year when the market is supposed to cool down,” said C.A.R. Senior Vice President and Chief Economist Leslie Appleton-Young. “While low rates have been fueling demand in the second half of 2019, supply constraints continued to put a drag on the market and undercut the positive effect of low rates. The surge in price is a byproduct of the imbalance between supply and demand as market competition continues to heat up.” Throughout California, City, County, and State Governments are taking steps to tackle the housing crisis with the support of California Gov. Gavin Newsom. The state recently approved bill SB 330 which will increase the housing supply by reducing the barriers to housing development. It labels our housing shortage exactly what it is: a housing supply crisis. This law will create certainty for developers constructing new housing units, if the development is consistent with local planning, zoning, and design requirements. It streamlines the local permitting process for five years in cities with more than 5,000 residents and where rents exceed 130 percent of the national average. The City of Santa Barbara has taken its own action by introducing the Average Unit-Size Density Program (AUD’s). The intent of the program is to support the construction of smaller, more affordable residential units near transit and within easy walking and biking distance to commercial services and parks. This will help ease the demand for housing by adding supply to the markets. It’s time to get serious about supply. REALTORS are at the forefront of the charge to promote housing and home ownership. We care about our communities and are actively involved in promoting housing solutions for our citizens. If you have questions about housing supply, or other real estate-related needs, call your local REALTOR® or visit the Santa Barbara Association of REALTORS® website at www.sbaor.org.

Poetic VOICE

Rick Benjamin who has lifted the lyre One loss folds itself inside another. It is like the origami held inside a plain sheet of paper. Not creased yet. Not yet more heavy. The hand stays steady. — Jane Hirshfield

S

O MUCH HAS HAPPENED IN SANTA BARBARA around Nancy Gifford! People may not know that in addition to heavy rowing in the art-paintingsculpture life of Santa Barbara, that she also curated and sponsored poetry books and readings. Poetry is always breaking into flower in her presence. She bade a heartfelt farewell to us for Scottsdale with a donation of 350 art works by local artists to the County of Santa Barbara. At the first unveiling and reception, I found

myself in earnest conversation with a sparkling UCSB Ph.D candidate about the semiotics of Umberto Eco and she mentioned the lucent poetry of her professor, Rick Benjamin, and rumor of his new book. I was all over that new book news like my Southern Appalachian cuzzos to blackberry pie. From his much awaited, Some Bodies in the Grief Bed —

It’s all the things we can’t repair, don’t

Hardware, Flowers

Maestro Benjamin writes: “My new book evolved as a meditation on both seeding and decay in human and non-human ecologies, as both praise and lament, as a way of reckoning in this moment. As usual, I suppose, the book mixes examination of a human life, mine, with what is always in a process of either gestation or dissolution in the environment which informs, surrounds, contextualizes to human scale.” Benjamin last visited this column with his marvelous Endless Distances (Lawrence & Crane, 2015). That book earned praise by master poets Mark Doty, Coleman Barks, and Michael Glaser, who wrote, “These poems are written with such craft and grace that I am left with gratitude for the deeper understandings they offer my life and my world.” Doty and Barks praised

The grandson of the man who first opened Durfee’s Hardware doesn’t know the name of all the tools & your Pop, who doesn’t suffer fools in hardware stores gracefully asks to talk to the old man. He needs someone who can tell when hundredyear old windows need chain not rope, weights dropping down as panes of wavy glass slide up. Gary Snyder says, learn the flowers, go light, & I know he’s right, but what if the flowers he knows are vanishing at a rate faster than we can remember

his “brave vision” and “his spare, clean language music.” Yes, he has continued to ripen as our own master poet of national significance. Of his new work, Renée Ashley writes, “The poems are blessings and prayers, crafted by a keen mind and with unflinching generosity, poems that take us with eyes open to the center of Benjamin’s utterly human and awakened heart.” Prayer Let even winter light linger on floor long enough for the dog to find it, let some of the snow drift in beneath a closed door with cold air because it is good to remember that some are sleeping in lairs tonight. Let the old fight lay down its weapons, surrender to something else we always knew was there—an embrace, her hair brushing your face, the soft air of his voice finding its way into your inner ear. Even after all these years, may the world find you out again & again, like lost souls seeking salvation in this world they left behind & sometimes even finding a halo of warm light to sleep in.

Benjamin gives, teaches courses such as Poetry & Community, Reimagining Social Change, Literatures of Juvenile Justice, Wild Literature in the Urban Landscape, Poetry of the Spirit, and more. He continues to facilitate poetry workshops with elders at the assisted living center and with kids at the Goleta Boys & Girls Club, and more. I love the common word in his poetry, evocative of William Carlos Williams, William Stafford, Gary Snyder, and I love his hand reaching toward Pablo Neruda, Adrienne Rich—holding stones of politics, gems of love. And I cherish that he is doing the work

list on which Bashi Treitler’s book appears also includes works by authors Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, Angela Davis, Ntozake Shange, Audre Lorde and many others. “It seems beyond my vocabulary to conjure words to describe what this honor means to me,” said Bashi Treitler, current vice chair of the United Nations Committee for the Elimination of Racism, Afrophobia, and Colorism. “This feels like a crowning achievement, and wearing that crown helps me hold my head higher as I continue my work as an activist artist-scholar.” Said Charles Hale, SAGE Sara Miller McCune Dean of Social Sciences, “I congratulate Professor Vilna Bashi Treitler on this impressive and richly deserved honor. ‘Scholarship in service to social justice’ — the dedicated purpose of the prestigious Cox-Johnson-Frazier award — is an apt description of Professor Bashi Treitler’s life work, which examines structures of racial and intersectional inequities, with an attentive eye to actionable remedies. This award comes on the heels of her book The Ethnic Project being named to the Zora Canon. “I am deeply proud that our division, and our campus, is home to such a truly original, creative and committed scholar,” he added.

Rainer Maria Rilke memorialized in – 9th Sonnet to Orpheus Only he who has lifted the lyre also among the shadows may render infinite praise. Only he who has eaten of the poppy with the dead will never again lose the most delicate tone.

And from Rick Benjamin— Elwood Home to owls, coastal pines still their nervy needles even in wind, bend don’t break, send scent thick as smoke through the window come evening. There was a time darkness & wind & sight of yellow eyes would’ve kept me awake at night. As it was I wept most times waiting for that hurricane to blow through my defenses: cover pulled tight around my body, back to wall, knowing an end was near. The thing itself is easy: spirit leaves body, disappears to its hiding-place where it can still witness what happens. Mean time, a boy will wait long as it takes to find a sleep in which he’s left alone, dreams beyond something he cannot believe is actually happening. So many years asking, who? after nightcreatures in the pines.

The release date for Some Bodies in the Grief Bed (Homebound) will be announced here. Richard Jarrette—author of Beso the Donkey (MSU Press, 2010), A Hundred Million Years of Nectar Dances (Green Writers Press, 2015), The Beatitudes of Ekaterina (Green Writers Press, 2017), The Pond (Green Writers Press, 2019), and Strange Antlers (2021).

into new societies. Her scholarship aims to explain how and under what circumstances we create hierarchies that value some humans more than others (like race, class, gender or unequal world systems), and how these hierarchical systems can change or be dismantled. Her work in many ways continues that of Cox, Johnson and Frazier, notable sociologists who Bashi Treitler described as inspirations for their efforts to advance black people and to edify the public about race as a global scourge, and racism as a mental illness. “What titans!” she remarked of her predecessors. “Their focus on our globe, and not just our own country, is meaningful to me as someone who works at the intersection of race, ethnicity and international migration. Plus, each of these men worked just as hard outside of the academy to shine light on the conditions of the downtrodden, and call out those they saw as complicit with racial denigration. They are stellar models for work that melds activism with scholarship and art, like mine.” “What are we here for if not to improve the world we live in, teach those in our classrooms to do the same, and leave behind works that can inspire future generations?” she continued. “Does the world really need another book or piece of art that doesn’t aim for such things?” Printed with permission of UCSB Office of Public Affairs and Communications

Santa Barbara International Film Festival

International Film Highlights Review by Robert F. Adams, Special to VOICE

T

HE OFFERINGS FROM INTERNATIONAL FILMMAKERS WERE REMARKABLE at the festival with many compelling foreign films, often with subtitles, where human stories become the primary focus versus visual and computerized wizardry as seen in many released movies. Film Festival programming staff chose carefully from among thousands of entries those Still from 14 Days, 12 Nights offering glimpses of challenging personal and political or societal conflicts as well as the angels and demons that are interwoven into the narrative journeys giving this festival a strong flavor of diversity. Some of the highlights include: 37 Seconds, a story set in Japan featuring the personal journey of a young disabled anime-styled manga artist with cerebral palsy who draws on a tablet. The film was directed and written by Hikari Still from Show Me What You Got and won the Audience Award at the recent Berlin International Film Festival. Awards aside, this was a deliberately slow-moving saga that chose to offer surprises in the realm of sexual exploration and buried regret, covering a universal theme of the ramifications of disability with grace and humor. The unlikely protagonist was new-to-film actress Mei Kayama, cast as the courageous heroine the film follows in three distinct acts. Its storytelling was gripping throughout and emotionally rich. Still from Supernova 14 Days, 12 Nights, a film from Canada in the French language was directed by Jean-Philippe Duval. It looks at a sad adoption story mostly set in Vietnam. Richly illustrated by the camera, the film captures the spectacular coasts of both Vietnam and Quebec as a backdrop to a story centered on female perspectives. It tells a problematic story underlining issues of colonization, class differences, and the war that victimized Vietnam by United States interests. French language films were prominent in the international lineup with a taut and fascinating thriller screened called Only The Animals. With five segmented chapters, the story, directed by Dominik Moll and written by Moll and Gilles Marchand from a novel by Colin Niel, boasted a multi-hued complex plot, and featured French actors that are at the top of their game including Denis Menochet, Damien Bonnard, and Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, among others. The locations in France and in Africa created a fascinating tapestry of atmospheric scenes and the fast-paced editing by Laurent Rouan was expertly accomplished. Another French film, Papicha, had co-producing partners from Algeria, Belgium, and Qatar. Directed by Mounia Meddour, it was a hard-hitting, violence-laced drama about a young woman aspiring to be a fashion designer resisting the conservative social forces in 1990s era Algeria. The performances were exquisite by the mostly young cast and formed a sobering portrayal of the ongoing conflict between secular and Islamic religious forces that currently provoke mayhem in the Northern Africa and the Middle East. Another honorable mention in the French language was Kuessipan, directed by Myriam Verreault. From Canada, it explored contemporary tensions between the Quebec Innu community and the modern world outside their mostly frozen world. Show Me What You Got, adeptly and creatively directed by Svetlana Cvetko, was set mostly in Los Angeles. This series of scenes was a direct homage to Truffaut’s Jules and Jim, and included charismatic performances from the cast, including Cristina Rambaldi, Mattia Minasi, and Neyssan Falahi. Shot in black and white, the free-wheeling plot explored a trio of friends, with silly adventures and sexual adventures that were mostly charmingly illustrated. Overriding the scenes was a French narrator further adhering to the Truffaut style. Films from other countries provided a rich backdrop of suspenseful cinema including an unforgettable drama from Poland, Supernova. The film was written and directed by Bartosz Kruhlik. Scenes built upon each other. Taking place in the middle of a rural farmland road with multiple lashings of tragedy, it builds slowly throughout the telling of this story. Other intriguing films included the Italian film The Mayor of Rione Sanità, directed by Mario Martone, emphasizing the sinister politics found deep within the poor neighborhoods of Naples. With an extraordinary cast and dialogue dripping with threatening intensity, the film is a devasting portrait of leadership that does not have any checks or balances. Films from Nordic countries included a historical epic from Norway. Wide-scoped and big budget, Amundsen was directed by Espen Sandberg. From Sweden, Call Mom!, directed by Lisa Aschan, was an entrancing and entertaining comedy-drama about modern-day family dysfunction. A gripping film from Georgia, part of the Russian Arc section, included the battle saga, Shindisi, from director Dito Tsintsadze. The film puts the audience right in the middle of a deadly encounter between Russian forces in 2008 when they smashed into a rural community upending a formerly peaceful and poverty laden village. The brutality of war was part of the story and the courage of the few villagers attempting to save Georgian soldier’s lives was deeply compelling. A film from Norway, Richard Hobert’s The Birdcatcher’s Son (Fågelfångarens son) won the SBIFF’s Audience Choice Award. Director Fatos Berisha’s The Flying Circus was awarded as Best International Feature Film. The Nueva Vision Award for Spain/Latin American Cinema went to Gerardo Herrero’s The Goya Murders and the Valhalla Award for Best Nordic Film was given to Jesper W. Nielsen’s The Exception, a film from Denmark. All in all, the international films were a centerpiece of excellence for festival audiences who enjoyed them on the big screens. Courtesy Photos

SBMA’s New Curator of Contemporary Art

B

RINGING EXTREMELY WIDE RANGING INTERESTS AND KNOWLEDGE OF ART AND CULTURE, James Glisson has been brought onto the staff at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art as the Museum’s new Curator Of Contemporary Art. Before moving to Santa Barbara, he served at the Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens in San Marino as the interim Virginia Steele Scott Chief Curator of American Art for two years after being promoted from Associate Curator. Glisson will begin his formal duties at the SBMA on February 10th. “With the addition of James Glisson to our talented curatorial ranks, we look forward to a new vision for the future growth of our contemporary art program,” noted Larry Feinberg, SBMA’s Robert and Mercedes Eichholz Director. “James is a curator of great intellect, energy, and passion, who will take our contemporary James Glisson program in interesting new directions.” While at the Huntington, Glisson curated, or co-curated, twelve exhibitions including A World of Strangers: Crowds in American Art, Frederick Hammersley: To Paint without Thinking, and Real American Places: Edward Weston and Leaves of Grass. He also organized two shows that opened last fall and was instrumental in the founding of /five, a highly successful exhibition initiative that integrated contemporary art into the museum’s programming in order to attract new audiences. Last March, he participated in the Getty Leadership Institute’s NextGen program, an executive education program for museum leaders. Before his time at the Huntington, Glisson wrote for www.artforum.com and contributed to projects on Renaissance anatomical atlases, the French painter Henri Matisse, the American artist George Bellows, and German art of the 1960’s. He has also written articles for the art publications Master Drawings, Panorama, and Afterimage. Glisson has also written a book entitled, Becoming America: Highlights from the Jonathan and Karin Fielding Collection of Folk Art, which will be co-published this year by The Huntington and Yale University Press. “For years, I’ve visited the Santa Barbara Museum of Art to see its sophisticated and substantial traveling exhibitions, not to mention its strong permanent collection. The quality and ambition of these projects have long impressed me, and I look forward to contributing to that legacy,” Glisson commented. Also an accomplished speaker, Glisson taught at Occidental College and has given countless talks at various scholarly conferences and museums including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Berkeley Art Museum, and the Autonomous National University of Mexico, Morelia.

Homestead, the fifth solo exhibition for Meredith Brooks Abbott at Sullivan Goss to open February 6th

T

HE DEEP TRADITION OF CREATION IN RESPONSE TO A SOUL TIE WITH THE LAND will envelope Sullivan Goss on 1st Thursday, February 6th when they open Homestead, their fifth solo exhibition of Meredith Brooks Abbott’s work. The Brooks and Abbott families have been farming and ranching in Santa Barbara county for over 100 years. Farming life is marked by the cycle of seasons and Meredith's plein air painting practice keeps her attuned to these same natural rhythms. In the spring, she paints the matilija poppies that bloom - both alongside her house and out in the world - as well as the artichokes. The fruits, vegetables, and flowers that dazzle at the local farmer's market in the summer months then show up in Meredith's summer canvases. The fall brings warm golden hour landscapes and sunflower arrangements that are elegant without being fussy. In winter, she reminds us to appreciate the Chanterelle mushrooms and cloudscapes laden with rain. Decades of immersion have given the painting of these sites and crops the feeling of ritual. She has watched the local landscape mature and develop. As a founding member of the Oak Group, she Succulents by Meredith Brooks Abbott has worked to help preserve local landscapes like the Carpinteria Bluffs. Her family homestead has become a great source for her art, the means of her livelihood, and, in turn, a great part of the meaning of her life. Meredith Brooks Abbott studied under noted local artists Douglass Parshall, NA; Richard Meryman; and Clarence Hinkle before going on to study at Art Center in Los Angeles. She then moved to New York City where she worked as an illustrator and took night classes at the Arts Students League. For over four decades, she has lived, worked, and exhibited in Santa Barbara - exhibiting at many of the area's most successful galleries, including Ellen Easton Gallery, Maureen Murphy Fine Arts, and Gallery de Silva. She has been represented at Sullivan Goss since 2009.
