APRIL 17 - 23 , 2019

Republican state senators are demanding a public forum in support of the New York Farm Bureau’s attempt to kill the Farmworker Fair Labor Standards Act. I have owned three businesses, employing about 400 dedicated, hard-working members of our communities. I couldn’t envision not paying them for overtime, not allowing them paid days off or vacation, not allowing them to bargain collectively or decide for themselves whether to unionize. I cannot imagine living in a system that did not require that they have drinking water supplied at their place of work or have adequate bathroom facilities within easy access. I cannot even think about allowing them to work in dangerous conditions. And yet as a result of New York’s antiquated labor laws, farmworkers are not afforded these protections. Some of our elected officials claim that what would be unfair for my employees would be fair for agricultural workers who do work that most Americans would not even consider. The Farmworker Fair Labor Practices Act would allow farmworkers the same basic rights as all other workers. State senators were elected to represent all the people in our community, not just those who have money in their

pockets, not just those who are members of the New York Farm Bureau. The Republican senators cite the loss of small dairy farms as an impact of removing historically racist barriers to equal employment. However, milk production has increased 10.7 percent over the last five years, and gross income per dairy farmer has increased by 12.8 percent, according to the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets’ most recent report. I know many farmworkers; some are my family members. They are proud of the work they do and how they lead their lives. I also know many farmers; most are fair-minded employers who watch out for their workers, protect them when they can, and go to major family events. I recognize that economic pressure on our farmer neighbors is a long hard battle, caused by such factors as decreasing consumption of liquid milk, low milk prices, and the Trump administration’s trade wars. But we must recognize that all workers in New York State should have equitable labor rights. Anything less is not only unethical, it is immoral. Our elected officials’ pandering to the Farm Bureau is not fair to our less visible and less vocal neighbors, the farmworkers who literally put the food on the table. JOHN GHERTNER, SODUS

Parents’ role in students’ achievement

Your “Call to Action” article again bemoaned the sorry state of affairs regarding student achievement in city schools. “Sorry” is an understatement. It is a disgrace. Your article assures us that the problem lies with

all of us: businesses, unions, churches, etc. etc., ad nauseum. Puleeez! With so many people, institutions, and entities attempting to correct the problem, rest assured that nothing will change, and the problem will fester into the foreseeable future. Only strong, bipartisan leadership, not beholden to politics or personalities, will have a reasonable chance of getting the job done. Mayoral control? The elephant in the room is parental involvement and home environment. If this subset is missing, we are just blowing smoke, because nothing anyone does will change. Yes, some exceptional students will overcome and excel, but the majority will fail, as the facts indicate. Changing an ingrained cultural attitude is necessary. An involved mother and father with high expectations for the children is what is needed, not platitudes and social finger pointing. It all starts in the home. Pity the children who are the victims. BOB TACITO, WEBSTER

The writer of a recent letter in the Wall Street Journal, about failing schools in Dayton, Ohio, places the blame on district residents: Schools can be no better than the residents of the school district. The writer proposed that poorperforming schools correlate with out-of-wedlock births. I encourage CITY to explore the family status of students in the Rochester City School District. If you find that “no fathers” is the fundamental problem in the district, then no amount of money and effort will solve the poor-school problem. Only the return of a family unit with a father (male) and mother (female) will make things better.

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

Election 2020: Preparing for the Dems’ big show Well, here we go, into what could be a truly wild year: Two months from now, Democrats will stage their first presidential candidate debate. So far, the party has 18 candidates, and as many as six or seven more may get in. Good heavens. Based on what we’re seeing among the most visible candidates right now, there’ll be a lot of focus on issues in the Democratic campaign. On how progressive or how moderate a candidate is. The main goal for the party, though – and the main goal for many of us, regardless of party – is to put somebody besides Donald Trump in the White House. And that’s easier said than done. The televised debates are an increasingly important first step in this process. They don’t tell us everything we need to know, but they do tell us a lot. For one thing, they give us a sense of how appealing a candidate is. That’s not a small issue, particularly now. To have any chance at winning, candidates will have to inspire and excite a broad population: conservatives, moderates, and liberals. And any Democrat who hopes to govern after being elected will have to win by a big margin. Big in the popular vote, solid in the Electoral College. A Democratic candidate will have to win over some of the Trump base. And given the behavior of the Republican Senate, the Democrats’ candidate needs to win big enough to sweep in a Democratic Senate and House. Charisma, confidence, “likeability”: all of those things will be important. They were important in 2016, in the primaries and in the Trump-Clinton election campaign. And we can get a sense of those qualities in the debates. We may not like it, but that’s the state of politics we’re in right now. Charisma counts. If the Democratic candidate is boring – and yes, if it’s someone who comes across as too far out on the fringe – Trump will get a second term. Electability can’t be the only criteria, either. By the end of four years, the Trump administration and its supporters in Congress will have done incredible damage, and it’ll take a president with very special qualities to restore the country and its reputation. Resumes count, then. The next president needs to know enough about the country’s government, its laws and history and politics – and enough about leading a large bureaucracy – to be effective.

Age, experience, charisma, issues: Heading into the next presidential election period, Democrats have a lot to think about.”

Based on their resumes, the declared candidates and potential candidates are a fascinating group, ranging from the really young (Pete Buttigieg and Tulsi Gabbard, both 37) to the old (Bernie Sanders, 77, and Joe Biden, 76). For comparison: The youngest president we’ve had was Teddy Roosevelt, who was 42 when McKinley was assassinated. The oldest president we’ve had (based on his age on inauguration day): Donald Trump, 70. How important is experience in elected office? Joe Biden clearly has the most: (New Castle, Delaware, County Council for two years; US Senator, 1972 to 2009; US vice president 2009 to 2017). Wayne Messam, on the other hand, has been mayor of Miramar, Florida (population about 140,000) for four years. And two candidates have never been elected to public office: entrepreneur Andrew Yang and Marianne Williamson, who writes self-help books and gives motivational speeches. (Good heavens.) The current hot candidate is Pete Buttigieg. He’s young, bright, charismatic, and moderate. His resume: mayor of South Bend, Indiana, population 102,000 – slightly more than Greece, New York. Does that qualify him for the presidency? This’ll be interesting.

[ NEWS IN BRIEF ]

Halstead named to Lej seat

Perinton resident Kara Halstead is the new County Legislator for the 18th District. Legislature President Joe Carbone appointed her last week to fill the vacant seat, which covers parts of East Rochester and Perinton. Monroe County Republican Committee chair Bill Reilich submitted her nomination on the party’s behalf. Halstead is senior administrative director at the University of Rochester Faculty Group and a former ADA compliance officer for the county. She’ll serve the district for the remainder of Conley’s term, and she’s running for a full term in the November election. Her opponent then will be Perinton Democrat John Baynes, a retired English teacher.

CRCDS names its new president

For the first time in its 200year history, Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School will be led by a woman. Angela Sims, currently vice president of institutional advancement at Saint Paul School of Theology in Kansas and Oklahoma, will become its 13th president on July 1, succeeding Marvin McMickle.

Sims will also be the first African-American woman to serve as a college president in Rochester. She has a PhD from Union Presbyterian Seminary, a master of divinity degree from the Howard University School of Divinity, and a bachelor’s degree from Trinity University. Among the books she has written and co-written are “Lynched: The Power of Memory in a Culture of Terror,” and “Ethical Complications of Lynching: Ida B. Wells’ Interrogation of American Terror.” Sims’ appointment comes at a time of major transition for the divinity school, which, like many similar institutions, has faced declining enrollment.

Lightfoot likely new Council VP

Rochester City Council member Willie Lightfoot was nominated as Council’s vice president early this week and was expected to be confirmed at Council’s meeting on Tuesday night. The position became vacant after longtime Council member Adam McFadden pleaded guilty to federal charges in connection with an investigation involving an organization funded by the Rochester Housing Authority. State law required McFadden to resign from Council seat.

TRANSPORTATION | BY JEREMY MOULE

DOT plans Lake Avenue project The state Department of Transportation is preparing to redo Lake Avenue between Lyell Avenue and Flower City Parkway, and pedestrians stand to benefit at least somewhat from the work. The DOT expects to begin milling and resurfacing the potholeplagued street in a few months. Lake Avenue has been, at its best, a somewhat hostile roadway for pedestrians and cyclists for a long time. It’s a high-volume road; more than 29,000 vehicles, many of them trucks, travel it each day, says Jordan Guerrein, a spokesperson for the DOT. And every year, several pedestrians or cyclists are struck and injured or killed by drivers.

The DOT plans to make some pedestrian-oriented improvements along Lake Avenue in response to those incidents and for general safety purposes. It’ll lay down high-visibility ladder markings for crosswalks, as well as high-visibility signs warning drivers of pedestrian crossings, Guerrein says. It also plans to replace traffic signals and put new pedestrian signals and push buttons at all intersections with traffic signals, he says. The intention is to make both pedestrians and motorists more visible to each other, Guerrein says. Residents and bike-pedestrian advocates have been very concerned

about vehicle speeds on Lake Avenue for a long time, but the DOT’s project doesn’t include traffic-calming approaches such as a reduction in the number of lanes. In its current form, the project would retain Lake Avenue’s current configuration – four lanes with a center turn lane – as well as its existing lane widths. The DOT also plans to leave the existing 35 mile-an-hour speed limit in place. The agency is holding a public open house on the plan from 4 to 7 p.m. on April 23 at the Edgerton Recreation Center, 41 Backus Street. DOT engineers and staff will be there to discuss the project and take residents’ input.


Most school budgets are designed to implement policies, support strategic goals, and address problems. But in the Rochester City School District’s case, there are far more problems to fix than there are dollars in the proposed $924.5 million budget.

EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

RCSD officials wrestle with budget priorities Preparing the budget for the coming year has always been a mammoth undertaking for the Rochester City School District, but this year it’s particularly challenging. Most school budgets are designed to implement policies, support strategic goals, and address problems. But in the city school district’s case, there are far more problems to fix than there are dollars in the proposed $924.5 million budget. The budget is being developed at a time when the district is under intense scrutiny from the State Education Department and local leaders. Problems in its special education programs have been widely criticized. And the district has been drawing down its reserves, trying to address some of its most serious challenges. Now the district has to find a way to make cuts in programs to reduce its $85 million debt at a time when the SED and others are saying the district is in crisis. Making matters worse, the school board is looking for a new superintendent and, depending on the results of the upcoming election, that person could be reporting to board with a new majority. And neither the superintendent nor potential new board members will have had any say in the budget they’ll be charged with implementing.

The Children’s Agenda, a non-profit children’s advocacy group, acknowledged last week in its annual budget analysis that the district has made discernable progress in some key areas, despite all of its problems. Suspensions have been significantly reduced, the report said; graduation rates are heading upward, some of the district’s lowest performing schools are doing better, school climate is improving, and the district is finally focused on improving special education. But the Children’s Agenda questions whether the board and administration can prevent that progress from being derailed by budget constraints. A major area of concern: the district’s efforts to improve special education. The proposed budget calls for greatly reducing the number of coordinators of special education services, called CASEs, and replacing them with a team of principals, vice principals, and central office administrators. The goal is to provide the team with more professional development related to special ed services. The administrators need to be able to address the needs of the students in their schools, says board member Willa Powell. Interim Superintendent Daniel Lowengard presented district officials

with a budget that was clearly meant to send a message: the district can’t continue to spend more money than it gets in revenue. Lowengard proposed cutting more than 326 positions, many of them teachers. There are no plans to lay off teachers, thanks to an earlyretirement program that both the board and the teachers union are embracing, since the program controls spending while retaining younger teachers – many of whom are people of color. Lowengard also proposed cutting 10 restorative justice instructors. But the board will likely restore the Interim Superintendent Daniel Lowengard has pushed for a more austere budget for the next school year. instructors to ensure that school PHOTO BY JACOB WALSH climate improvements continue, Powell says.

HOUSING | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

Housing activists push reforms with Tenant Spring Unlike San Francisco and New York City, Rochester has a reputation for having housing that’s affordable – and it does, for people with a good income. But for many, many Rochesterians, housing isn’t affordable at all. About 65 percent of the city’s households are renters, not homeowners. And a recent report from the Fiscal Policy Institute, a liberal non-profit research organization, shows the depth of the city’s affordable housing problem. Sixty-one percent of Rochester’s families of color, and 45 percent of white families, spend more than 30 percent of their income on rent. People spending that much of their income on housing are “cost burdened,” according to the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, meaning that they struggle to have enough money left for food, medicine, transportation, and other vital needs. In addition, many low-income tenants routinely cope with poor heat, inoperative appliances, vermin infestation, mold, and other problems. Last week, the Rochester Housing Coalition, an organization of tenants and other housing activists, kicked off a 10week series of events they’re calling Tenant Spring. Marching from the Liberty Pole to the Hotel Cadillac – whose purchase and closing last year added to the city’s shortage of very low-rent housing – they stopped traffic at intersections to call attention to the need for reforms related to housing and homelessness. Coalition members include several local and state organizations: the City-Wide Tenant Union, the Rochester Homeless Union, VOCAL-NY, Citizen Action of New York, and others. And its members include people who themselves have experienced eviction and homelessness. In an interview on Friday, nine Coalition members discussed the need for reform and the plans for the Tenant Spring series. Participating in the interview: Kim Smith of VOCAL-NY; Patrick Braswell, president of the Rochester Homeless Union; Mercedes Phelan of Citizen Action; and Ryan Acuff, Elizabeth McGriff, Mary Brown, Barbara Rivera, Pamela Owens, and Tonya Noel of the City-Wide Tenant Union. The goal for Tenant Spring, they said, is to raise public awareness about Rochester’s housing crisis and to push for 6 CITY

state and local legislation. The next event: a town hall at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 24, at Wilson Foundation Academy, 200 Genesee Street. Rochester-area state legislators have been invited, and Rochester residents will discuss their own experience with deteriorated housing, eviction, and homelessness. Other events being discussed for the Tenant Spring series: a “pastor’s roundtable”; a community picnic, where members of the broader public could get information about the housing crisis and donate money or time; a voter registration drive; and a candidates’ forum. The next two months are a key period, on two levels. Locally, all four Rochester district City Council seats will be on the ballot in the June 25 Democratic primary, which in Rochester is the election, essentially. City Council makes decisions on everything from zoning and planning to development subsidies, all of which affect housing issues.

ROCHESTER’S HOUSING CRISIS

Lack of quality, affordable housing affects thousands of Rochester households every year. Among the statistics compiled by the Rochester Housing Coalition: • 62 percent of Rochester tenants spend more than 30 percent of their income on rent; • 48 percent of Rochester’s households of color spend 40 percent of their income or more on rent; • Rochester has a shortage of more than 28,000 units of affordable housing; • More than 8,500 eviction lawsuits are filed in City Court each year; • 76 percent of the county’s emergency housing placements are due to evictions. In Albany, now that the budget is behind them, state legislators are turning their attention to a long list of proposals. Among the bills under discussion by lawmakers are several affecting housing for low-income New Yorkers. That issue has been given particular urgency because rent regulations for New York City expire on June 15. Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie has promised that the Assembly will support stronger tenant protections. But housing activists in Upstate New York say he hasn’t gone far enough. In particular, says

the Upstate Downstate Housing Alliance, a statewide housing advocacy coalition, the legislature needs to adopt legislation that would prohibit evictions for other than good cause. Currently, landlords don’t need a reason to require tenants to leave when a lease expires. For tenants with 30-day leases – common for lowincome tenants – this poses a particular hardship, compounded by the severe shortage of quality, affordable apartments in Rochester. The Rochester Housing Coalition is also pushing for legislation that would

increase the rent supplement for people on public assistance, permit tenants to take landlords to court over problems as failing to make repairs or provide adequate heat, let Rochester pass its own rent stabilization law, and reduce “economic sanctions.” Currently, people on public assistance can face sanctions – including loss of their benefits check – if they miss a day of work or fail to show up for an appointment. Housing legislation for Upstate New York will be competing for attention, though, with a raft of other bills, including those that would legalize marijuana, give drivers licenses to undocumented immigrants, eliminate cash bail, restrict robocalls, and reform campaign finance. The Housing Coalition’s Tenant Spring events are designed to both build support for housing legislation and to keep the pressure on state legislators, Coalition leaders say.

PAINTING A PICTURE OF A PLANET IN PERIL

Artists make the environment their work

ENVIRONMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE AND REBECCA RAFFERTY

Some environmental problems are so severe or obvious that, at least eventually, they can’t be ignored. Smog choked big cities for decades until Congress passed the 1970 Clean Air Act, which imposed aggressive new limits on harmful industrial and automotive emissions. The Cuyahoga River in Cleveland caught fire several times over the course of a century, and those images fueled the Clean Water Act, which sought to curb pollution of the nation’s rivers. America and the world as a whole now face a new generation of environmental problems. But the problems pose a conundrum, since they aren’t as obvious as the brown-yellow-gray haze of smog, nor do they have the shock value of a flaming river at the heart of a major city. Climate change is the perfect example of this. It’s a massive, multi-faceted problem that’s only getting worse, and it’s already causing harm to every place on the planet. But the discussions around its manifestations – increasing global average temperatures, melting polar ice and rising sea levels, intensifying heatwaves, harsher storms – haven’t done much to inspire a sense of urgency among Americans. In turn, there’s been little will or incentive for politicians to act aggressively on new laws and policies that would slash the carbon emissions driving climate change.

Present-day environmental problems lurk just out of sight, sinister but disguised, which presents a challenge for building public interest and awareness. They exist as abstract concepts in the minds of many people. But there’s an undervalued tool that excels at turning the abstract into the tangible, at rendering visible the unseen, and at eliciting emotional responses. It’s art, and practically every major social, cultural, political, and revolutionary movements for the past century has drawn on its imaginative, inspirational, and evocative powers. Francisco Goya’s painting, “The Third of May 1808,” was an indictment of the horrors of war, depicting the execution of Madrilenian patriots by Napoléon Bonaparte’s army during the Peninsula War. That work influenced other artists, including Pablo Picasso, who painted “Guernica” as a reaction to the Nazi’s use of the Basque town for bombing practice. During the late 1980’s, as the HIV and AIDS crisis worsened and entered the public eye, activists used graphic arts and visual art to demand government and institutional action. And earlier this month, artists including renowned photographer Nan Goldin joined drug policy activists in Washington to call attention to and protest the FDA’s role in the opioid crisis. In addition to a die-in, they installed giant spoon sculptures at various drug manufacturing companies. Designed

by Domenic Esposito, each of the “Opioid Spoon Deployments” bears the FDA logo and telltale, tar-like stains in the utensils’ bowls. Right now, artists across the US and the world are using their work to thrust issues such as climate change, plastic pollution, the loss of wilderness and green spaces, and overconsumption in front of audiences. (The artistically staid New York Times recognized the growing importance of this collective work in a March article titled “Can Art Help Save the Planet?”) New York City-based photographer Virginia Hanusik is an architectural researcher involved with New York University’s multidisciplinary Climate Working Group. Her photographs of coastal Louisiana show how the people who live there are adapting to rising waters and coastal erosion, and to policies requiring that any house below sea level is elevated. She’s made photos that tell the story of a new, disquieting normal and has intentionally refrained from using disaster images. That sort of awareness is needed everywhere, and Rochester is no exception. Locally, rainstorms have been increasingly intense and destructive. Fruit farmers have lost crops because of early warm spells followed by bud-killing cold snaps. These are the kinds of things scientific researchers say will become more frequent for the Rochester-Finger Lakes region.

Yet there’s a disconnect. An estimated 72 percent of Monroe County residents say global warming is happening, but only 38 percent believe it will harm them personally, according to data from the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication and the George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication. We’re living in the Anthropocene era, a term scientists coined to refer to the time when humans started having a major impact on the planet. Humans have transformed the land over time and created environmental crises, so any representation of a landscape makes a comment about the environment, says Tate Shaw, director of the Visual Studies Workshop, a school that emphasizes art as social commentary. Even a “bucolic plein air painting,” a style of painting on-site that’s rooted in Impressionism, says something about the environment now, Shaw says. Several artists in the Rochester-Finger Lakes region have used their work to bring attention to environmental issues, whether local, national, or global. The artists depict the region’s natural beauty to encourage its long-term protection. They create interactive projects to connect people with elements of nature. And they show the hidden aspects of pervasive plastics pollution. continues on page 10 rochestercitynewspaper.com

For her exhibit "In Abeyance," the late Christine Sevilla paired images of suburban sprawl with scenes from Hemlock and Canadice Lakes. The exhibit advocated for the permanent protection of the Hemlock and Canadice shores. PHOTOS BY CHRISTINE SEVILLA

Christine Sevilla The late Christine Sevilla was well known in environmental circles and was a devoted naturalist, keenly interested watersheds and wetlands. And one of the causes dearest to her – and to many other environmentalists and conservationists across the Finger Lakes region – was the permanent protection of Hemlock and Canadice Lakes’ shores. The city once owned land around the lakes, but the state bought the properties in 2010, permanently ensuring that the two bodies would remain the only Finger Lakes with undeveloped shores. The properties are now a state forest. In 2007, Sevilla produced “In Abeyance,” an exhibit of photographs and other visual art that juxtaposed views of Hemlock and Canadice Lakes with images of residential and commercial sprawl in Monroe County. She and others believed the sprawl around Rochester was endangering the historically protected shorelines. The sprawl meant new water lines and new customers that the Monroe County Water Authority had to serve. To make sure it could meet the demand and maintain reliability on the county’s east side, the Authority built a new treatment plant in Webster. 10 CITY APRIL 17 - 23 , 2019

Activists and some elected officials worried that the new plant might eventually render the city’s water supply unnecessary. And with that came a reasonable worry that the Hemlock and Canadice land could be sold off and developed. But Sevilla had been a persistent voice in the call to preserve the shores, and “In Abeyance” was perhaps her biggest public volley. She died tragically in 2009, however, and didn’t get to witness the local environmental community’s success with Hemlock and Canadice. Sevilla’s other work included a map and guide to the Black Creek watershed, for which she made the photos and produced the design and “Thanatopsis,” a series of invasive-species photographs. “Thanatopsis” was presented as a calendar and framed as “A meditation on death and a lament for the losses, even extinctions, caused by the injury we do to diversity and habitat.” In 2010, the Genesee Land Trust named a wetlands preserve in Caledonia after her to honor her commitment and contributions to environmental protection.

Americans have a fraught relationship with food and, as consumers, many of us are disconnected from its production. We imagine cows grazing in pastures, chickens pecking away at feed in their spacious pens, and neighborly farmers tending to their crops by hand. Absent are images of mechanization, poultry battery cages, and concentrated animal feeding lots. And many consumers don’t

consider how far their food has traveled to make it to grocery stores. EcoArtTech examines that disconnect in “Food Convenience Labor Luxury.” New media artists Leila Nadir, a writer and the founding director of University of Rochester’s Environmental Humanities Program, and Cary Peppermint, an associate professor of art, environment, and emerging practices in the university’s Department of Art and Art History,


contrast their own experiments around more traditional food sourcing and cultivation practices with industrial agriculture in the 2017 project. The resulting video portrays both California’s Central Valley – a former desert transformed through irrigation into the nation’s leading producegrowing region – and the artists’ efforts at foraging, clearing land for gardens, digging out forest springs, preparing meals from scratch, and other practices. “This video reflects the dilemma of many who care about food, environment, and sustainability: How to balance dependence upon convenient and wasteful industrial infrastructure while forging new paths that are not entirely practical in the context of demanding modern lives,” says the website description. “Food Convenience Labor Luxury” is one of several Nadir and Peppermint works that incorporate environmental themes. Another uses an interactive smartphone app to expose people to natural features, while others center on food.

John Kastner

Rochester-based illustrator John Kastner paints visceral, cartoonishly chaotic scenes that often lambast humanity’s folly. He’s recently tackled the impact of consumerist society on the environment, and specifically, the problem of plastic. A few years ago he created “Filthy Animal’s Plasticrap,” a painting that incorporates the volume of plastic trash he picked up during his short walks to and from work. The piece depicts a consumer hell: a nightmarish shopping center scene overrun with advertisements and mindless zombie shoppers. A refuge for animals is threatened by encroaching development. And ringing the picture is a garland of plastic bags and Christmas lights, with bits of plastic toys and junk attached here and there. He incorporated handfuls of plastic straws he picked up into the picture, arranged in a line and springing oily leaks, and labeled “The Absolutely Guaranteed We Promise Never Leak (oops sorry) Pipeline.” Kastner serves on the executive committee of the Sierra Club’s Rochester chapter, and he’s also one of the founders of the Seneca Park Alliance, a committee that works to protect the Frederick Law Olmsted-designed park. He’s participated in many spring clean-ups, and is accustomed to seeing plastic fragments in the soil and bags caught in tree branches. In a 2017 interview, Kastner said that it weighs on his mind that so much of

it ends up in the oceans and in marine animal’s stomachs. And carbon pollution from plastic manufacturing contributes to the acidification and warming of the oceans, he said. But more than careless litterers, Kastner faults the machine that relentlessly produces and markets stuff to a population that has been groomed to consume and discard things at an alarming rate. He also added some cows into his illustration, and they serve to represent the massive, environmentally damaging factory farms that feed consumers’ desire for meat and dairy products.

Denis Defibaugh

Rochester Institute of Technology professor and photographer Denis Defibaugh’s interest in the work of painter, author, and adventurer Rockwell Kent took him to Greenland. In the early 20th century, Kent developed a love of remote, cold corners of the planet where indigenous people have lived for thousands of years, including Alaska, Tierra del Fuego on the southern tip of South America, and Greenland. Between 1929 and the mid1930’s, Kent stayed in native Greenland communities of Illorsuit, Sisimiut, Nuuk, and Uummannaq, and he documented the terrain, settlements, and people in

paintings and photographs that were turned into lantern slides. More than 80 years later, Defibaugh visited the same communities and documented them as they are today, forming a comparative study that provides insight into changes between Kent’s time and now. Defibaugh was awarded a National Science Foundation grant in 2016 for his proposal, “Rockwell Kent and Early 1930’s Greenland: A Comparative View of Genealogical, Environmental, Social and Cultural Change in Contemporary Greenland.” Defibaugh lived in Greenland for much of 2016 and 2017 and partnered with anthropological social science collaborators and a Greenland historian. His project included oral histories from interviews with Inuit elders, students, and other residents. In Kent’s time, Greenland was a colony under Danish control, and today it’s an autonomous constituent country of the Kingdom of Denmark. Because Kent spent time immersed in small and remote indigenous communities, he was able to document the impact of Danish policies and the people’s relationship to the extreme environment. Defibaugh similarly immersed himself in the relatively untouched communities, which gave him perspective on the vanishing settlements, struggles with the diminishing market for seals and whales, and enduring traditions such as hunting via dog sledding (which is under threat as the vast stretches of ice melt). Some of Defibaugh’s photographs are recreations of exact spaces Kent shot, including Sisimuit Harbor, which looks nearly identical except for the indications of the village’s expansion in housing and roads. But his study also touches on the increasingly alarming impact of climate change in the Arctic. Greenland’s ice sheet is a mile thick in places, and has enough water in it to raise global sea levels by 23 feet, according to a study that Nature Magazine printed in late 2018. And it’s melting at a daunting rate, with an unprecedented amount of runoff. “The future of Greenland is unclear,” Defibaugh wrote in the artist statement that accompanies his “North by Nuuk” project, which documents the modernity of Greenland’s capital and can be viewed on his website, denisdefibaughgreenland. com. “As climate change continues to dramatically affect the ice cap, settlements are slowly being abandoned, and population continues to decline.” rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 11

Eating green at the tavern Toasted Bear Tavern 689 SOUTH AVENUE 434-3784; TBTAVERN.COM MONDAY-THURSDAY, 7 P.M. TO 2 A.M.; FRIDAY-SATURDAY, NOON TO 2 A.M.; SUNDAY, NOON TO MIDNIGHT [ REVIEW ] BY CHRIS THOMPSON

I like pub food. I am usually a healthy eater, but there’s nothing wrong with some periodic pub grub. I don’t always feel like calculating how many calories I’ve ingested or how many Omega-3s per gram are in my sandwich. Maybe I just want to basket of thick-cut and seasoned wedge fries, to go Jackson Pollack with the condiments, and let my taste buds swim in a sea of Sriracha, ketchup, mustard, and starchy bliss. Don’t you judge me. You’re likely thinking about cleaning the bones of some sweet hot wings and licking your fingers clean. This was my mindset after about 3 hours of capoeira on Saturday. I yearned to counter all that shirt-drenching cardio and series of inversions with some wings and fries and beer. It takes

some serious effort to maintain my “was-probably-a-bodybuilder-but-let-himself-go-butstill-does-pushups-every-otherday-and-thinks-that-helps” physique. The perfect place in town for pub food after my workout is Toasted Bear Tavern in the South Wedge, on the corner of Gregory Street and South Avenue. I’d been there only two times since its transition from Beale Street Café, but noted that it had a similar aura as the previous establishment. The clientele was still a decent mix of in-town regulars and expatriate college or grad students, enjoying pool or darts or just hanging out, and Purple Haze is still on tap. I was beset with a sense of nostalgia when sitting down at a table at Toasted Bear. Some of the tables still have the “Beale Street” logo plastered on them under a centimeter of resin. No shade, to them, though. That stuff is hard to get off, and it’s more environmentallyfriendly to not sand down and re-lacquer a

room full of otherwise perfectly good tables. I craved greasy pub fare the first time I visited Toasted Bear Tavern back then, too. Expecting a small menu I planned on getting wings and fries, but my plans were thwarted by the robust menu. There were appetizers and sides and flatbread pizzas and burgers and six different styles of wings. They even offered soups and salads, and not just lettuce, tomato, and onion salads drowned in ranch, either. Also, since it was Friday, they offered a fish fry, which I ordered.

The chef at the time came out and asked, “How would you like a broiled cod instead?” I was up for it, and he brought out a huge filet of light, flaky cod in a light white wine sauce and a side of roasted vegetables. Unless I’m in a British pub, I expect my fish fry to be a big slab of hurried, battered rubber with a side of lightly-fried bland potatoes. Toasted Bear gave me a gourmet meal. So much for greasy wings and fries that time. This time would be different. This time was not different. I had every intention of ordering wings and fries, and I did get the pub fries. They are everything I want in a pub fry: huge wedges, lightly seasoned, and the perfect ketchup-Srirachamalt vinegar mouth delivery mechanism. The menu is still varied, with one major difference: There is a “Kitchen Verde” section. Toasted Bear Tavern coowner Jesse Esan worked with the mealdelivery service Kitchen Verde to provide vegan choices for pub customers. Kitchen Verde owner Sarah Goodenough created the recipes for the menu items herself. Now you can order roasted eggplant meatballs, Buffalo Chick’n mac & cheese, Chick’n wings, or chili-sans-carne ($12 for each item on the vegan menu). Andrew Alvarado — the bartender who took my order — told me that Goodenough rotates the recipes periodically, and that this week’s chilisans-carne is a quinoa and white bean chili with a side of corn bread. This all sounded delicious, but I had already had those fries, and I was determined to get some nice hot wings. There is no way I would be deterred! I was deterred. I ordered the chili sans carne. Delicious as it was, it could have used a little bit more spice. But take that criticism with a grain of salt; I inhale habanero sauce like it’s oxygen, and I consider Sriracha to be as mild as ketchup. My colleagues stuck to their guns and had burgers and sandwiches. They said that the Toasted Bear Burger ($14) is thick and juicy, and well worth its price, and the Mediterranean chicken Sandwich ($11) is bold in flavor and still tender. One day, I will go to Toasted bear and try the wings. I will devour 10 of them in minutes. I will dip my fries in the remaining wing sauce, and I wash it down with a Purple Haze, and my craving for pub fare will be satisfied. That time will be the next time I go to Toasted bear. I promise this. UPDATE: I got the eggplant meatballs. rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 13

While others (notably Stanley Jordan) have tapped their way to electric guitar stardom, Reed has invented a way of obtaining a wondrous soundscape from an acoustic guitar. It’s all about tunings, tapping, and rhythmic coordination, and it’s nothing less than a reinvention of the instrument.

Tough Old Bird WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24 BUG JAR, 219 MONROE AVENUE 8 P.M. | $8-$10 | BUGJAR.COM TOUGHOLDBIRDMUSIC.COM [ FOLK ] From Fillmore, New York in Allegany County, Tough Old Bird is a folk project painting impressionistic tones of pastoral scenes. The duo — brothers Matthew and Nathan Corrigan — is robustly reflective in its songwriting, however gentle it is in its performances. Sonically, there is an appreciation of classic folk artists like Pete Seeger, as well as modern inspiration from the likes of Great Lake Swimmers and Iron & Wine. The sincere, pensive tone of their naturalistic aesthetic and the implicit underpinning of mysticism are understated and even uncharacteristic at nightlife venues these days. Chicagobased Ratboys and local band Fowls will also support.

Homeless Jazz Trio THURSDAY, APRIL 18 THE LITTLE THEATRE CAFÉ, 240 EAST AVENUE 7 P.M. | FREE WITH SUGGESTED DONATION THELITTLE.ORG/MUSIC [ JAZZ ] Homeless Jazz Trio is a project revolving around

friendship, formed by members of Claude Bennington’s Fever Dream — drummer Gary Lamaar, bassist Ryder Eaton, and pianist Phil Lewalle. Performing standards, originals, and improvisations, the group encourages listeners to absorb its music however they see fit. Mysteriously, the band lacks available recordings and an internet presence. The best way to get to know Homeless Jazz Trio is to see it for yourself at their recurring weekly residency at The Little Theatre Café every Thursday in April.

Nazareth College alumnus and Nashville-based blues singer-songwriter Meg Williams is a sweet goddess on the outside and a talented, blues-rock beast on the inside. On her new, self-affirming album “Take Me as I Am: The Muscle Shoals Sessions,” she reflects the ups and downs of love and life by blending traditional blues style with a fresh country-rock format. Williams encourages mutual respect on the title track and “Sometimes I Need You Too,” while embracing personal freedom and her darker, funkier side on “Little Bit of the Devil” and “Can’t Keep Waiting on You.” Her band moves fluidly through complex changes, keeping the listener on its toes with precise stops. “Take Me As I Am: The Muscle Shoals Sessions” is a feel-good expression of self-love and taking second chances. The album release show is on Friday, April 19, 8:30 p.m. at Lovin’ Cup, 300 Park Point Drive. $10. 292-9940. lovincup.com. — BY KATIE HALLIGAN

Looking for a guitar hero? Look no further than The Dirty Pennies, a Rochester trio which, on its new “EP,” serves up the songs like cuts of lo-fi beef. It’s slick, but it’s not showy. It’s primal rock ‘n’ roll with just the right amount of blues to keep it all in place. Picture a less-stuffy Strokes or a more manic Black Keys. This “EP” is absolutely cruel with the tease of a mere three songs, but the band makes them count. Damn, if this isn’t the best stuff I’ve heard so far this year.

Chip Taylor, who wrote classics like “Wild Thing” and “Angel of the Morning,” plays Abilene on Saturday, April 20. PHOTO BY DAVEY WILSON

He writes the songs Chip Taylor SATURDAY, APRIL 20 ABILENE BAR AND LOUNGE, 153 LIBERTY POLE WAY 8:30 P.M. | $18-$22 ABILENEBARANDLOUNGE.COM [ FEATURE ] BY FRANK DE BLASE

Chip Taylor is a mellow cat. He’s so cool, sheep count him. Artists like Janis Joplin, Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield, Eddie Arnold, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, and Jimi Hendrix have had his words in their mouths. Taylor has been everywhere forever — whether as a songwriter-for-hire penning hits like “Angel of the Morning,” a professional golfer, traveling musician, or as a professional handicapper. He’s also not tired of talking about a particular hit, “Wild Thing.” That’s right, Chip Taylor, 2016 inductee in the Songwriters Hall of Fame, wrote “Wild Thing” — rock ‘n’ roll’s equivalent to “Happy Birthday.” 18 CITY APRIL 17 - 23, 2019

You move me. It all started in Yonkers, New York, where the now-79-year-old musician once clamored to get next to the household radio. “I could hear different types of music on the old Motorola radio in the kitchen,” Taylor says. “And even though there was no country music played in Yonkers, New York, I heard a show from Wheeling, West Virginia and I became a country music fan at an early age.” He had a country-rockabilly band in high school, and shortly thereafter he got signed to King Records’ R&B division, signaling his start in the music business. Taylor started writing songs for other musicians, and this caught the ears of people like Chet Atkins, who was in charge of RCA Victor’s A&R department. “I’m very surprised I don’t know Chip Taylor,” Atkins said. “I’m surprised he’s from New York. It’s a great song and I want to hear everything he writes.” Things changed forever for Taylor in 1965, when a producer who was working with the group Jordan Christopher and the Wild Ones

called Taylor in search of a song. “He knew I was a country writer,” Taylor says, “but that I was writing some interesting rock ‘n’ roll songs.” There was a hitch. “I need it by tomorrow,” the producer said. So Taylor sidelined a country demo session he had previously scheduled and went into the studio seeking “Wild Thing.” The band recorded it, but more as a straight-blues song. “It was a nice little record,” Taylor says, “but it wasn’t the way I felt it. I heard it as more of a rock ‘n’ roll, punk thing. It was very guttural and simple. The Troggs came along in 1966 and covered the demo version, and they did a pretty good job of it. It’s a wonderful record and now it’s in the Hall of Fame.” Taylor regards “Wild Thing” as a notch on his varied timeline. He also acknowledges his time as a professional handicapper after being thrown out of every casino in Atlantic City. Vegas didn’t want him either.


FOLLOW ALONG ON INSTAGRAM He gave up music from 1980 to 1995 to roll the dice and pursue gambling full-time. “I was a very good card counter,” he says. “They banned me from Atlantic City for counting cards, so I had to switch my jones for gambling. I learned from a master and became a very good gambler.” When he was writing his hits “Anyway You Want Me,” “Angel of the Morning,” and ”Wild Thing,” he still managed to make two to three bets a day. His bookie was none other than Meyer Lansky, Jewish mobster and cofounder of the mafia hit squad, Murder, Inc. Lansky’s runner George would collect on Mondays. “Nice guy,” Taylor says, “always smiling, always with a lot of money for me because I beat him 53 out of 56 weeks.” Taylor continued gambling until returning to the music biz in 1995. Getting a songwriter to choose his favorite song is like getting a mother to choose her favorite child. But Taylor takes a stab anyway. “It’s hard for me to know what my favorite song is,” Taylor says. “I’ve got so many that meant so much to me at different times. A few years ago, I had a song out, ‘He’s a Good Guy (As Well You Know).’ That meant a lot to me. On my new album ‘Whiskey Salesman,’ there are some songs in there that just touch me so much. There’s a song I wrote for my wife, ‘I Love You Today,’ which is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written.” You can’t talk about Chip Taylor’s songs without mentioning the man’s minimalist, melancholic delivery. Taylor’s voice is a laconic purr, a velvet vessel to launch his stories. Yet it somehow comes off as if it’s coming from you. When you listen to Taylor, you’ll swear it’s your conscience. And even though other artists cover his songs, there is something signature, something distinctive that tells you you’re listening to a Chip Taylor tune, complete with lyrical detours and its quiet storm. “I’m not trying to write a hit,” Taylor says. “I’m just writing from a certain spirit. I always treat the song with reverence. It’s a gift to me.” It’s the same when picking the ponies… The extended version of this article is at rochestercitynewspaper.com.

INDIE ROCK | BAD SUNS

Lifelong friends and musicians, vocalist Christo Bowman and bassist Gavin Bennett formed Bad Suns in 2012. After adding drummer Miles Morris and guitarist Ray Libby through the Los Angeles music scene, the band submitted to a local radio station and quickly found itself touring with The 1975. Now signed to Epitaph Records, Bad Suns is celebrating its third full-length album, “Mystic Truth.” The quartet evokes the sunny California sky with crashing waves of sound and sky-high vocals. Mixing elements of dream pop, post-punk, surf, and indie rock, its lyrics complement the instrumentation like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Each song is different from the last, surprising the listener with harmonic twists throughout. Bad Suns radiates existential lyrics and stadium-ready, post-punk rock — think Tears for Fears and The Clash.

One-two punch “The Royale” REVIEWED SATURDAY, APRIL 13 CONTINUES THROUGH APRIL 28 THE FIELDING AT GEVA THEATRE CENTER, 75 WOODBURY BOULEVARD TICKETS START AT $32 | 232-4382; GEVATHEATRE.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY LEAH STACY

Once every few seasons, a riveting show materializes on the local docket. Sometimes, its fame precedes it — “Hamilton,” for instance — but most other times, the show is still well under the radar and audiences get to discover it themselves. “The Royale,” which runs at Geva Theatre Center’s Fielding Stage through April 28, is one such show. The play by award-winning writer Marco Ramirez (“Orange is the New Black,” “Sons of Anarchy”) opened off-Broadway in 2016 after runs in Los Angeles and London. 24 CITY APRIL 17 - 23, 2019

The plot is based on a true story, and follows Jay “The Sport” Jackson, a black boxer who wants to become the heavyweight champion of the world. Jackson challenges the current titleholder — a white man — to come out of retirement for the fight of the decade. But in raciallycharged America circa 1905, this unheardof event could have consequences. The minimalist set design by Seth Reiser places audience members ringside for this fast-paced, 70-minute drama. An intimate cast of five, directed by Pirronne Yousefzadeh, has a palpable chemistry that keeps each scene sparking with energy and suspense. (Throughout the show, many members of the audience were literally leaning forward, on the edge of their seats.) In the role of Jackson, Jamal James (also seen in the national tour of “The Color Purple” and TV’s “Gotham”) is a towering force onstage. His character requires tightly wound, controlled focus tempered with a bit of playful humor, and James is as

charming as he is awe-inspiring. Costume designer Sarafina Bush has created rich, period-appropriate garb for the cast, but James’s primary costume is a simple pair of white boxing shorts. Both he and DazMann Still (TV’s “Bull,” “The Last O.G.”) are in impeccable shape, and perform boxing feats throughout the show’s duration. Still, who is a Rochester native, is the youngest in the cast but holds his own as sweet-natured boxing apprentice Fish.

The staging of the fights in “The Royale” is particularly interesting. There’s no actual boxing — some sparring — but rather, Movement Coordinator Rocio Mendez has created an impressive, intricate dance of foot stomps, handclaps, physical movement, lighting (also designed, and impeccably so, by Reiser) and sound (flawlessly designed by Chris Lane). In the role of Jackson’s promoter, Max, Sean Meehan (CBS’s “Elementary,” “The Good Wife”) is equal parts salesman and circus ringmaster, wheeling and dealing Jackson to fame and glory. But Meehan keeps a soft edge to the character, and doesn’t miss a beat with his many quips and one-liners. As Jackson’s manager Wynton, Alexander Thomas (who played the same role in the Toronto production) delivers a quietly firm character that centers Jackson’s rocketing emotions. Rounding out the cast is Lisa Tharps (Broadway’s “King Headley,” TV’s “Elementary”) as Jackson’s sister, Nina. Though Tharps joins the show only in the second half, she makes up for lost time with a poignant and electrifying performance. “The Royale” is Geva’s sixth coproduction with Ithaca’s Kitchen Theatre, and played there March 1 through 31 with the same cast and crew. Yousefzadeh is Geva’s recently hired Associate Artistic Director and Director of Engagement, and directed last year’s “Heartland” and 2017’s “Lake Effect.” She comes to Rochester from New York City and has directed around the country at The Public, Actors Theatre of Louisville, La Jolla Playhouse, Cleveland Play House, and many others. The addition of a nonRochester native — and a woman — to the Geva managing artistic staff is an exciting development, and if the power of “The Royale” is any indication, Yousefzadeh has greatness in store for Rochester audiences.

ART-LECTURE | ‘FREDERICK DOUGLASS AND PUBLIC ART TODAY’

There’s been a lot of buzz surrounding the legacy of Frederick Douglass in the past year, as 2018 was the bicentennial of his birth, and Rochester’s cultural sector engaged in the Re-Energizing the Legacy of Frederick Douglass project. Part of that group’s work included installing 13 Douglass statues, created by Olivia Kim, at different sites that held some connection to his life in Rochester. Last year one of the statues was vandalized by two young white men, sparking debates about enduring racism in this city. There’s still a lot for us all to unpack, together. This week the Memorial Art Gallery will host a discussion about the history of Frederick Douglass, public art, and the legacy project. Panel participants include Carvin Eison, College at Brockport professor of Journalism, Broadcasting & Public Relations and Project Manager of Re-Energizing the Legacy of Frederick Douglass; Joan Saab, University of Rochester professor of Art History and Visual Culture Studies; and Carolyn Vacca, Monroe County Historian and St. John Fisher College professor and chair of History. The discussion will be moderated by Amanda Chestnut, artist and Arts Administrator at Flower City Arts Center. Wednesday, April 17, 7 p.m. at Memorial Art Gallery, 500 University Avenue.

SPECIAL EVENT | CLOTHING SWAP POP-UP

There’s loads of ways to get involved in environmental activism, including participating in the zero-waste and buy-nothing movements. But that doesn’t mean you can’t acquire new-toyou items. Supplement your existing wardrobe and find new homes for things you no longer wear at a clothing swap pop-up event this week at The Yards. Impact Earth and The Op Shop are co-hosting the event, which includes raffles and drinks and samples from RocBucha and The Red Fern. Local vendors will also be one site with goods for purchase, if you so choose. The swap begins at 4:30 p.m. and is one-for-one: if you bring five items, you get five tickets to swap. All sizes and styles of (good condition) clothing are welcome. All un-swapped clothing will be donated or recycled. Saturday, April 20, 4 to 7 p.m., at The Yards, 50-52 Public Market Way. $5 admission. Search “clothing swap pop-up” on facebook or visit impactearthroc.org. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

KIDS-FILM | ROCHESTER INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN’S FILM FEST

Whether you’re young or young at heart, the Rochester International Children’s Film Festival presents a range of films that are sure to delight all ages. Thirteen shorts showcase kindness, friendship, humor, and other gentle themes appropriate for children and families, or anyone that needs to see a bit of light right about now. Stop motion, 3D and 2D animation are all featured. Titles like ‘Ants,’ ‘Land without Evil,’ and ‘Sam’s Dream’ are just a few of the award-winning films that were chosen by veteran film programmer and festival co-founder Ruth Cowing, and vetted by a group of local educators led by co-founder Connie Valk. The festival also features a short film by young Rochester artists, “Learning through Play,” created by students enrolled in the School #8 YMCA Afterschool Program and developed in collaboration with Animatus Studio. Continuing at Monroe County Library System locations through April 27. Free. For the full screening schedule, visit kidsfestroc.org. — BY AMANDA LYNN

COMEDY | JERRY SEINFELD

Jerry Seinfeld has made a comedic career of turning the mundane into the hilarious, carefully weaving social commentary into stories about relatable, little things. From his self-named iconic 90’s show about nothing, to the acclaimed web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” Seinfeld’s pioneering comedic style and distinctive voice have been influencing popular comedy for decades. We may be grateful that we’ve reached a point where comedians have stopped putting on a fake New York accent and asking, “What’s the deal with…” (Insert something that would really be a better joke in a different format). But the originator of that style offers a lot more in his writing and humor. Don’t settle for an imitation: Seinfeld returns to Rochester this week to perform standup at Rochester Broadway Theatre League’s Auditorium Theatre. Friday, April 19, 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. at the Auditorium Theatre, 885 East Main Street. Tickets start at $50. 800-745-3000; ticketmaster.com. — BY AMANDA LYNN

Film

A scene from “Midnight Traveler,” screening next week as part of the One Take Film Festival. PHOTO COURTESY OSCILLOSCOPE LABORATORIES

Finding truth in film One Take Documentary Film Festival THURSDAY, APRIL 25 THROUGH SUNDAY, APRIL 28 $7-$11 PER FILM; $70-$85 ALL-ACCESS PASS | OTFF.ORG [ PREVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

Next week the One Take Film Festival kicks off its third year of celebrating documentary filmmaking, with four days of nonfiction movies, music, discussions, and parties. The festival spawned from The Little’s ongoing One Take documentary film series, and presents a varied and enlightening lineup curated by Program Directors Linda Moroney and Bri Merkel. The range of subjects covered in each installment of the OTFF collectively offer a

snapshot of where we are as a culture through the societal issues we face. This year’s theme, “nothing but the truth,” centers on the continued quest for truth in a time when the facts seem to grow murkier each day. “Truth is our theme this year, just as it seems to be for our entire country right now,” Moroney said in an interview with CITY. “Unlike Hollywood films, documentary shows us truth in all of its complicated, challenging, and nuanced glory. We get to be active participants in these movies. And yes, documentary films are movies!” And just like the hunger for documentary films themselves, the festival has grown each year, Moroney said. “This year we have more films, more sponsors, more community partners, more venues.” But the films themselves remain the stars of the show, and they’re sure to give audiences plenty to chew on — with the hope that viewers

will continue to digest what they’ve seen over some post-film cocktails and conversation. The festival also continues its tradition of spotlighting alternative forms of nonfiction storytelling, in past years exploring the possibilities of VR filmmaking and this year diving into the world of podcasting with the “Ear Docs” panel discussion on Saturday, April 27. And in a festival first, One Take will be premiering “The Biggest Little Farm” with a live score performed by Emmy-winning composer Jeff Beal, leading The Empire Film and Media Ensemble. That screening, at the Eastman School of Music will be followed by a Q&A moderated by film critic Jack Garner. Note: due to the venue, seating for that event will be limited. What follows is just a taste of the festival’s offerings for 2019. For more information and a full schedule of films and festival events visit otff.org.

The riveting “Midnight Traveler” follows the journey taken by Afghan director Hassan Fazili’s after the Taliban put a bounty on head, forcing him to flee the country with his wife and two young daughters. Shot entirely with the family’s smartphones, the intimate and emotional film puts a vital human face to the refugee crisis. Producer and co-director Emelie Mahdavian will participate in a Skype Q&A following the screening. (Thursday, April 25, 6:30 p.m.) Penny Lane’s provocative and very funny film about the Satanic Temple, “Hail Satan?” finds this likeable collection of rebels and outcasts to be far less interested in devil worship than in fighting against tyranny wherever they see it. The group’s valiant efforts to uphold the separation of church and state in particular has made them the scourge of evangelical Christians everywhere, as they battle against the religious right’s attempts to enshrine America as a Christian nation. (Thursday, April 25, 9:30 p.m.) Alison Klayman’s “The Brink” observes the infamous Steve Bannon over the course of about a year, beginning when Trump fired him from his position as White House Chief Strategist and concluding with the 2018 midterm election. The picture it paints of the conservative political firebrand is as fascinating as it is troubling. (Friday, April 26, 6:30 p.m.) With “Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am,” director Timothy Greenfield-Sanders uses archival footage and interviews with contemporaries — as well as Morrison herself — to deliver a stirring portrait of the trailblazing writer through her life and literary works. A panel discussion with WOC Art Collaborative members Tamara Leigh, Tianna Mañón, and Delores Jackson Radney will follow the screening. (Saturday, April 27, 6:30 p.m.) “The Proposal” chronicles the efforts of artist-turned filmmaker Jill Magid to create an exhibition inspired by the late Mexican architect Luis Barragán, a task that proves more challenging than anticipated when she discovers that Barragán’s entire archive of professional work is owned by one woman in Switzerland. What follows is a compelling examination of art and accessibility. (Sunday, April 28, 12 p.m.)
