College students in fossil fuel fight Colleges in the Rochester area and across the country have gone to great lengths to build up their sustainability cred. The efforts vary from campus to campus but include reducing food waste and curbing energy consumption. Some schools have pledged to drastically reduce their carbon footprint. Yet many schools, from Ivy League universities to small liberal arts colleges, still have money invested in oil, coal, and natural gas companies. The contradiction
is not lost on students, some of whom are now trying to convince campus administrators to change their investing approach. Student groups at the University of Rochester and SUNY Geneseo are leading campaigns to get their schools to end their investments in fossil fuel companies. They say they want their schools to take a stand against the industry and its role in one of the biggest environmental and social issues of their generation: climate change.

Oil, gas, and our waste-filled lives
Every day at 7:25 a.m. I point my bus north on 590 to take my students to school. I see three or four miles of bumper-to-bumper traffic, often at a standstill. I think about all that wasted fuel, all that carbon heating up the planet, destroying what is trying to keep us alive. I think about all the money wasted on parking, insurance, auto loans, maintenance, and the three empty seats in most cars. Then I think about all the wasted time that could be spent reading, writing, drawing, thinking, meditating, or even working on laptops if these people were on buses or trains. Do we have such an abundance of the precious moments of our lives that we can throw away so many of them stuck in traffic? What kind of living is this? The flashy car ads don’t cover that question. Where is the future in this? Add more lanes, more cars? Right now, corporations are working hard to finish off the atmosphere we breathe and the water we drink with the Keystone XL Pipeline and hydrofracking for oil and gas so that we can continue to piss away our lives behind the wheel. If this seems crazy to you, why don’t you tell someone? JOHN KASTNER, ROCHESTER

On the problems plaguing the City of Rochester’s red-light cameras: The one issue that no one has talked about is that this idiotic red light camera program gives suburban drivers one more reason to avoid going downtown. The City of Rochester desperately needs suburbanites to spend $ downtown in High Falls and the East End. One or two $50 tickets will make them think twice and could be enough incentive for
them to decide to spend their hard-earned money at Tinseltown or the neighborhood bar instead. Think about that, City Council. CICERO
Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com One of the problems with the short yellow lights, as a traffic engineer explained it to me, is the “dilemma zone.” That is the time when you are close enough to the yellow light that you have to decide: 1) Do I have enough time to safely stop without slamming into the windshield? 2) Should I just do the yellow light since I can’t meet #1? Those who say, “Well, they ran the red light” don’t get the “dilemma zone.” If you are driving at or below the speed limit, you should have time to stop safely. If the yellow light is shortened, that time disappears and as a driver you are now stuck with a real problem. MYOBB

On our March 13 News Blog on parents’ concern about the Rochester school district’s suspension procedure: The suspension problem in the city would not be as severe as it is if parents began to behave more like parents, and enacted discipline on their kids instead of requiring the schools to do it. There are more than a few students who are remarkably resistant to behavioral modification and make teaching and learning exceptionally difficult for others. If parents started disciplining their kids in elementary school and took measures that caused the kids to behave in manners more conducive to teaching and learning, the suspension rate would not be so high. The suspension rate is as high as it is not because schools aren’t flexible and haven’t tried damn near everything they can think of (they have; I’ve seen a goofy number of different attempts, only a few with even moderate results), but because the students all over the district, for whatever reason, have decided that they have no reason to behave as scholars, or even allow others to behave as scholars. The reasons are numerous and come from all sides of the problem. A few: 1) Students realize that their prospects for getting jobs that
they can support themselves with is minimal at best, and that a high school diploma won’t provide enough help, and that college is an unrealistic goal. 2) Students have been socially promoted far above their ability level, and rather than make the effort to either get themselves up to speed, or find someone to help them get up to speed, have decided to camouflage their ineffectiveness with unruly behavior. 3) Discipline begins too lax at the beginning of the school year, and by the time the school catches up to what needs to happen, those horses are out of the barn and running for the hills. 4) Parents are not effective enough at exerting discipline on their kids. 5) The pull of the streets (short-term reward) is stronger than the desire for an education (long-term reward). 6) Poor diets and too much X-Box mitigate against their ability to sit still for 40 minutes. 7) Students are fed a diet of unhealthy media that impacts behaviors in subtle ways, especially when there is little to counterbalance those behaviors. This is obviously not a comprehensive list, but it gives one a sense of the struggle being waged. If a parent decides to appeal a long-term suspension, some serious questions need to be asked of both side of the appeal. Something has gone tragically wrong, and the kids are the ones suffering. (Doesn’t mean I want to keep unruly kids in my class, though. I’ve got too many “good” kids who need an education.) YUGOBOY

Ouch! Describing St. Patrick’s Day as “the most sacred of Irish holidays” (music listing for The Tossers’ appearance at Water Street) sounds so cheap. People in Ireland don’t go bonkers there the way Americans do here. When I was growing up (in the US), we ate corned beef and cabbage during the winter months and not necessarily on March 17. Turning former and current Christian holy days into drink fests upsets me deeply. ROSE (O’NEILL) O’KEEFE, ROCHESTER

Our guns and our fear Yet another multiple-victim shooting, this time just a couple of hours east of Rochester, in Herkimer and Mohawk. More deaths. More critical injuries, lockdowns, community trauma. And yet there seems little hope that Congress will enact a sensible gun control law. And New York State’s new law is under attack. I admit that I don’t understand the appeal of guns. I’ve never hunted, and I’ve never lived in a rural area where wildlife could be a threat. But New York’s guncontrol law doesn’t restrict hunters. Neither does the legislation under consideration in Washington. Those laws deal with highcapacity magazines, assault-style weapons, record-keeping, gun registration. The gun culture in the United States is so strong that proposals for reasonable controls get bullied off the stage because people think that they need guns to protect themselves from government. That they might be in a movie theater or a shopping mall when a deranged gunman opens fire. That they’d be able pull out their gun and fire faster than a gun-wielding burglar. The “protection” appeal is so strong that gun enthusiasts are now urging that every teacher in every school be armed. This is a uniquely American cultural issue – fed, unfortunately, by the news and entertainment media, which have glorified violence and created the sense that crime is far more prevalent than it is. People are senselessly afraid, and conservative bloggers and gun extremists have ramped up that fear. And we seem to find a perverse satisfaction in being afraid. South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, says the New York Times’ Gail Collins, worried recently about how, with gun controls, people could protect themselves “in an environment where the law and order has broken down, whether it’s a hurricane, national disaster, earthquake, terrorist attack, cyberattack, where the dam’s broken and chemicals have been released into the air and law enforcement is really not able to respond and people take advantage of that lawless environment.” You wonder how anybody in this country sleeps at night. Studies of whether media violence causes real violence haven’t proved that it does, directly – for most people. But more is involved than that. The US has a gun culture, and, the Times’ film critic A.O. Scott wrote
The news and entertainment media have glorified violence and created the sense that crime is more prevalent than it is.” recently, “it is absurd to pretend that gun culture is unrelated to popular culture, or that make-believe violence has nothing to do with its real-world correlative. Guns have symbolic as well as actual power, and the practical business of hunting, law enforcement, and self-defense has less purchase in our civic life than fantasies of righteous vengeance or brave resistance.” Violence-heavy media can begin to erode the barrier between fantasy and reality. If we are convinced – facts to the contrary, declining violence rates to the contrary – that our community is a dangerous place, we will act differently, individually and corporately. And we will fail to pass sensible laws that can protect us. One ray of hope: Gun ownership has been dropping, according to a recent Times report – particularly among younger adults. It’s been dropping even in the South and western mountain states. Maybe we’ll eventually age out of the gun culture. Unfortunately, a lot of people will be hurt before then.
Ten years in Iraq
We shouldn’t let March 20 go by without reflecting on the tragic path that this country embarked on 10 years ago. The deaths and injuries, the human displacement, the chaos, the financial cost: we unleashed unspeakable trauma and disruption with our invasion of Iraq, and we will continue to pay the price for decades. “Misguided” is nowhere near a strong enough term for our decision to launch that war. And it comes nowhere near the truth. Dick Cheney, the war’s architect, did damage so severe to Iraq – and to this country – that it’s hard to think of actions that deserve a higher place on an Infamy Hall of Fame list.

Buckingham buying Xerox Square
Xerox Corp. reached an agreement to sell Xerox Square to Buckingham Properties for an undisclosed amount. Xerox will continue to lease space for about 1,400 employees in the 30-story tower downtown. The property sits on 2.7 acres of land. Buckingham has 90 days to complete inspections before proceeding with the deal.
RPD’s downtown digs
Rochester City Council was due to consider Tuesday night legislation to lease space at the Sibley building for a new police department substation. The city would enter into a 10-year lease at the building, which would house approximately 40 officers and RPD staff. The new detail is meant to quell concerns about downtown safety, especially in the area around the Sibley building.
Legislative tit for tat
During the Monroe County Legislature’s monthly meeting, Democrats tried to bring to the floor legislation that would

Production of the upcoming film “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” will take place entirely in New York State, with some sequences filmed in Rochester. One of the sequences to be filmed locally is reportedly a chase sequence, due to our area’s favorable speed laws. The movie is due to debut in theaters in May 2014.

The mark of Ginger Beard
“Ginger Beard” sounds like a pirate, or maybe a red-haired chippie doing human-shield work for a closeted so and so. The mark of Ginger Beard — whoever that is — is spreading through the South Wedge like white plastic lawn chairs spreading through suburban summers.
RBTL’s new season
The Rochester Broadway Theatre League announced its 2013 to 2014 season. The shows are: “Ghost the Musical,” “War Horse,” “Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical,” “Sister Act,” “Once,” and “The Phantom of the Opera.” In addition to the regular season, the RBTL announced a few special shows: “Rock of Ages,” “American Idiot,” and “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.”

GB has been plastering the Wedge with wheat paste posters of varying sizes and imagery, all featuring his or her handle or “tag.” One poster has Abraham Lincoln with a red beard, and another has the name “Ginger Beard” written over a shield. There are more styles out there, too. GB’s handiwork is visible on the walls of Wedge buildings, street posts, under at least one bridge, and reportedly even the resilient South Wedge cheese statue got hit (the cheese survived a brief kidnapping in 2010). Wheat paste is a form of street art and is apparently a fairly new addition to Rochester’s graffiti scene. It’s an adhesive made by mixing flour into boiling water. Chris Jones, co-president of the Business Association of the South
Wedge Area, says graffiti isn’t a big problem in the Wedge, though she says the neighborhood does sometimes see a spike when school is out. A different kind of street art is coming to the Wedge this summer when as many as 15 Wedge walls will be used for the Wall\Therapy initiative. Artists create large murals as a way to inspire and “rehabilitate” the community, according to the Wall\Therapy website. “We’re thrilled about it,” Jones says. “We’re going to give them as many walls as we can.” She says the Wall\Therapy art should serve as a deterrent for other, less-desirable graffiti.

“The trend has been to get tough with teachers and blame teachers for poor outcomes. But what if teachers were trusted instead of controlled? When teachers are in a position of authority to make decisions, what you get is an emulation of successfully run, high-performing organizations.” [ KIM FARRIS-BERG ]

Teachers in charge Rochester schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas has asked the Rochester Teachers Association to present plans for schools to be run by teachers instead of central office administration and principals. Any proposals for teacher-led schools would be part of the administration’s new contract negotiations, which have just started, RTA President Adam Urbanski told about 200 teachers at a meeting on Monday afternoon. The district could convert one to six schools into teacher-led schools. “We have tried everything else [to improve city schools],” Urbanski said. “I think it would be a sin of omission to not try it.” The teachers listened to a presentation by Kim Farris-Berg, co-author of “Trusting Teachers with School Success: What Happens When Teachers Call the Shots.” Farris-Berg said that there are nearly 70 teacher-led schools throughout the United States in urban, suburban, rural, and charter school settings. Some have unions and some don’t. After a close examination of 11 teacher-led schools, Farris-Berg and her co-author found that autonomy can lead to greater accountability, Farris-Berg said. “The trend has been to get tough with teachers and blame teachers for poor outcomes,” she said. “But what if teachers were trusted instead of controlled? When teachers
are in a position of authority to make decisions, what you get is an emulation of successfully run, high-performing organizations.” Though teacher-led schools vary in their degree of Kim Farris-Berg. PHOTO BY MARK CHAMBERLIN autonomy, some commonalities include the ability to hire and terminate, set salaries and benefits, establish leadership roles, and set policies for their schools — such as student discipline. Some of the outcomes from teacher-led schools are more individualized student learning, broader use of assessment tools, and greater collaboration between teachers and students, Farris-Berg said. She said that teacher-led schools are not a panacea. But teachers in these schools are pioneers of a movement that contrasts sharply with current education trends, she said. Deborah Meier, senior scholar at New York University and author of “In Schools We Trust,” will work with teachers and schools interested in developing a proposal for teacherled schools in Rochester.

Designing College Town The City of Rochester’s Zoning Board will hear an application this week to waive certain design standards for Mount Hope College Town, a University of Rochester-initiated project which will be built on 16 acres on the west side of Mount Hope between Elmwood Avenue and Crittenden Boulevard. | The major concerns associated with the application have to do with the project’s planned hotel and the grocery store. As it stands, the hotel would have six out of 10 of its ground-floor windows along Elmwood Avenue blacked out. The grocery would also have blacked-out windows along the street. | A city zoning official explained earlier this week that although those requests are part of the application, the developer knows getting through the Zoning Board would be difficult and is making changes. | In fact, a report signed by Marcia Barry, director of planning and zoning for the city, recommends against granting the variances. | The developer may present changes and-or options at this week’s meeting, the zoning official said. | The meeting is at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 21, in City Council chambers at City Hall, 30 Church Street.
In the March 13 edition of Chow Hound we included an item about the impending closure of Park Avenue’s Chester Cab pizza. This information was taken from a press release sent out by the owner of the business, Howard Nielsen. Since the announcement, plans for the restaurant have changed. In Nielsen’s own words: “I was going to close Chester Cab Pizza at the end of this week, but our longtime manager, Dess Ivanov, has made a last-minute purchase offer, which I’m happy to accept. He will have an uphill battle and I wish him all the best of luck. So if the community wants Chester Cab, and he continues to make great-tasting pizza, it should work out for the best.”

Rebellion in education funding Michael Rebell isn’t a household name, but to many New York educators and parents, particularly those in New York City, he’s a hero. Rebell was co-counsel for the plaintiffs in the landmark Campaign for Fiscal Equity lawsuit against the state. Rebell argued that the state was failing to provide the New York City school district with adequate funding, and therefore was not fulfilling its constitutional obligation to educate the district’s students. The suit ultimately led to the state’s Education Budget and Reform act in 2007. The law was supposed to ensure adequate and equitable funding for all of the state’s school districts. In addition to New York City’s schools, districts like Rochester saw a substantial bump in revenue. But then, faced with a $10 billion gap in the 2010 to 2011 budget, the Legislature introduced a mechanism called the Gap Elimination Adjustment. The GEA allows the Legislature to deduct funds from school districts across the state in order to balance the budget. The result: education aid was severely cut as the problems on Wall Street and the recession reduced the state’s revenue. Some reports put the current education aid shortfall at about $7.7 billion annually. Rebell, a graduate of Yale Law School and adjunct professor at Columbia University, recently discussed the CFE case. In an era of “no new taxes” and a widespread belief that too much money is spent on education, Rebell says educating the state’s poorest children requires more financial support. And he says he’s willing to go to court again, if necessary. An edited version of an interview with Rebell follows. CITY: What is New York State’s definition of an adequate public education?
Rebell: The Court of Appeals defined a sound basic education as a meaningful high school education that provides students with the knowledge to be productive civic participants, and to be prepared to pursue a career in the competitive global economy. That was the essence of what the court upheld in the CFE case. Every child in the state is guaranteed this education, and the resources required to provide it. In high-needs districts like Rochester, should education include intervention and social services?
If you’re talking about after school and summer school programs, experience seems to show you need to have the city, county, and school district working together in a coordinated approach that utilizes available services in the most efficient way. 6 CITY
MARCH 20-26, 2013
Kids from poverty backgrounds do need these kinds of services, and to a large extent they’re covered by the CFE case, though not fully. The issue here is equitable funding for all districts, so how did New York State arrive at the appropriate funding level for education in the past? And how should it be funded in the future?
New York pioneered this idea of a foundation amount, which is a sensible way to go, providing you fairly fund it. A foundation funding system says that you fairly determine what level of funding is needed to provide a sound basic education to all kids, and you guarantee that. In theory, that’s what our system does, but it doesn’t do it in practice for several reasons. Even before they [legislators] froze it and started cutting back, the way the foundation system was set up in New York State didn’t require localities to contribute their share. While [in Rochester] the Maintenance of Effort law requires the city to contribute about $119 million annually to the school district, many communities contribute to their schools at their discretion. The other flaw: the foundation amount was totally artificial. It bore no relation to reality. That was the major thing that the CFE court decision changed. The court was very clear that you couldn’t go with numbers that are determined by political bargaining: historically the “three men in a room.” They would start with New York City, “What percentage are we going to give that?” And they would go to Long Island, “What are going to give that?” Then they would let the computers run a formula for the rest of the districts, and after the local legislators saw what they were getting, they would renegotiate depending on [their] political power. So it was politically run. The court said that’s not what the Constitution requires.
So the court came up with an approach that the Legislature did follow in 2007. But then because of the recession, the four-year phase in of the increased amount that would have given more to highneeds districts like New York City and Rochester did not come to pass. Albany says it has increased education funding, but has the state actually increased it to where we were prior to the recession?
Last year they increased the budget by about 4 percent and it looks like they Attorney and education activist Michael Rebell. PHOTO PROVIDED will increase it again this year by a little more than that. But what they’re actually You’re also critical of the state’s decision doing is increasing it over the inadequate to withhold $260 million from the New base they established a few years ago.

If they wanted to pass some law that cut the salary of the mayor, maybe Where is the increased education funding there would be some logic to it. But what supposed to come from? are you penalizing the kids for? Figuring out the best tax policy is what the legislators get paid to do, but I do recognize Is there a new CFE lawsuit coming? that the economy is not what it was in I’m focusing on trying to persuade the 2007.

But if funding when they succeed? not, yeah, you always have to consider I look at it from a viewpoint of what kids going back to court. need. What about the kids living in the districts that don’t get the grants? Are they supposed to be left behind? Why should poor kids in New York State or New York City get this extra funding and poor kids in California, where they are desperate for money, not get anything extra?

Colleges in the Rochester area and across the country have gone to great lengths to build up their sustainability cred. The efforts vary from campus to campus, but include changes that greatly reduce waste from dining halls and retrofits that slash energy use in campus buildings. And some campuses have signed on to climate change commitments, pledging to reduce their carbon footprints. Yet many schools, from Ivy League universities to small liberal arts colleges, still have money invested in oil, coal, and natural gas companies. The contradiction is not lost on students, some of whom are now trying to convince campus administrators to change their approach to investing. Students at University of Rochester and SUNY Geneseo are among those pushing their schools to stop investing in fossil fuel companies. The students leading the UR and Geneseo campaigns say that by pulling their investments, their schools would be taking a stand against the fossil fuel industry and its role in one of the biggest environmental and social issues of their generation: climate change. “If you are coming out and publicly saying, ‘We value sustainability, we value the environment, we believe that climate change is real [and] we need to do things about it if we don’t want it to become literally a global disaster,’ then it’s time to not just say those things and actually do things about them,” 8 CITY

says Allison Hoppe, a SUNY Geneseo senior who helped start a divestment campaign at her school. Nationwide, colleges and universities invest a total of approximately $400 billion, says Dan Apfel, executive director of the Responsible Endowments Coalition, which is working with student-led divestment campaigns across the country. Most schools don’t have large fossil fuel holdings and eliminating those investments wouldn’t hurt the performance of their endowments, says Apfel, a UR alumnus. But how schools invest their money can make a statement and influence other investors, he says. Divestment — by government as well as by universities and colleges — is not a new tactic: it played a role in ending apartheid in South Africa. In September 1985, trustees for the statewide SUNY system voted to sell off $11.5 million worth of stock in companies doing business in South Africa, according to an Associated Press report from the time. SUNY was and is the largest university system in the country. The University of Rochester followed in 1987, says a New York Times article. UR also has a policy prohibiting direct investment in companies that support the Sudanese government. “This isn’t something that’s brand new, it’s been done before,” says University of Rochester student Alykhan Alani, who supports fossil fuel divestment. “The
question is, do we have the political will to institute it here and now?” At the University of Rochester, the student-

it purchases local food items, provides incentives for employees to carpool, and purchases renewable energy credits to cover a chunk of its energy consumption. “There are certain things that the university has taken a stand on and that’s commendable,” Alani says. “I would just like to see the university continue to make that kind of progress when it comes to decisions on how it invests the endowment money.” The university has policies governing how its endowment is invested, including a social investment policy. Students, faculty, staff, and alumni can submit requests for action on a specific security and the UR board’s Investment Committee reviews and responds to the requests, Miller says. Under President Christopher Dahl, SUNY Geneseo signed on to the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Change Commitment. Under that commitment, Geneseo has pledged to track and reduce its greenhouse gas emissions. And the college is supposed to incorporate issues around climate change and sustainability into its academic program. The school has also taken steps to reduce food waste, increase recycling, and curb energy consumption. It’s with those efforts in mind that junior Jennifer Benson, sophomore Jessica Kroenert, and senior Allison Hoppe, formed Divest SUNY Geneseo. The school itself doesn’t have any long-term investments, but two affiliated organizations do have mutual fund investments, school administrators say. The funds include a mix of stocks, and commonly include holdings in fossil fuel companies, administrators say. One of the organizations is the Geneseo Foundation, a nonprofit which maintains an approximately $18 million fund used for scholarships, research, and student programs. All of the invested money comes from donations, administrators say. The other is Campus Auxiliary Services, a nonprofit company that oversees services including campus dining, laundry machines, and waste management. Divest SUNY Geneseo wants the foundation and Campus Auxiliary Services to get rid of any investments they have in fossil fuel companies. “No matter when it happens, fossil fuels are nonrenewable and we’re going to run out,” Benson says. “The earlier we can start transitioning and the more support we can have for renewable energy, the better it will be not only for the institution and its investments, but also for the environment and our health.” The Geneseo administration doesn’t have a position on divestment, says a statement from college officials. The foundation and the
“No matter when it happens, fossil fuels are nonrenewable and we’re going to run out” SUNY Geneseo junior Jennifer Benson auxiliary services each have their own board of trustees, which makes decisions about investments. And administrators say they have confidence in the boards. Students at other SUNY schools, including Purchase, Stony Brook, and the College of Environmental Science and Forestry are campaigning for divestment, too. And the Divest SUNY Geneseo leaders see an opportunity for their school to be a leader among state college campuses. “Really, what this country needs and what this state needs is to invest more in renewable sources of energy,” says sophomore Kroenert. Ultimately, the organizers realize that student, alumni, faculty, and staff pressure are the keys to a successful campaign. Divest SUNY Geneseo has collected approximately 100 student signatures supporting their cause. And more than 200 people have signed an Internet petition posted on www.350.org, though Divest SUNY Geneseo didn’t start that petition. Beyond the environmental and social arguments for divesting from the fossil
fuel industry, the students also say there’s a business case. The industry deals in a finite resource. And while its stocks have historically offered investors good returns, that may not be the case in the future as reserves dwindle and resources become harder to extract. And the investment policies of schools may soon become an issue of competitiveness, particularly when it comes to attracting students and faculty. Alani, who also works as a campus tour guide at UR, says that prospective students often ask him about campus sustainability policies and efforts. And students at UR’s peers, including Syracuse University, are also pushing for their schools to divest from fossil fuels. Hoppe, Kroenert, and Benson say Geneseo officials highlight environmental initiatives and commitments when they market the school to potential students. The divestment movement is growing and attracting more public and media attention, which means more potential students are going to have the issue on their minds. “It’s something that’s going to be in the public eye for a while and hopefully that will be something that will encourage schools to take action,” Hoppe says.

The South Wedge is quickly becoming my go-to place for just about anything I might need. Craft beer? The Tap & Mallet fills that niche admirably. A reliable place to take your girlfriend and her parents for dinner? Zeppa Bistro’s a great choice. Jamaican for lunch? Peppa Pot. A dive bar to suck down PBRs and shots on the cheap? Lux Lounge. Chocolate to get you out of trouble after spending far too long at Lux? Hedonist is right next door. Until recently, though, the South Wedge was not blessed with one of the essential hipster sacraments: sushi. In October, Nick Grammatico, owner and chef at the successful sushi joint Piranha on Park Avenue, decided that it was long-since time to fill that niche. So he and his brother Matthew opened Banzai Sushi and Cocktail Bar.
Banzai is not Piranha II. More strictly Asianinspired than its big brother across town, Banzai offers only sushi and modern Chinese-ish dim sum along with a full bar. (Piranha offers only wine and beer, and Grammatico decided that he wanted the room to experiment that a full bar would provide him and his crew.) While Piranha was playful and exuberant at 5 months old, Banzai is a remarkably mature restaurant. Grammatico claims that Piranha was his “masters degree” in restaurant management. He applied everything he learned there to his new digs on South Avenue. There are few if any rough edges to the place, the service, or the food. If the hallmark of a mature restaurant is consistency, Banzai is already poised to be very successful. Late on a Thursday night, the long bamboo-
topped bar at Banzai was crowded with an eclectic assortment of 20- and 30-somethings. The younger members of the crowd were drinking what they called Genny-sakes — Genesee pounders with shots of sake on the side — and trading quickly emptying plates of maki rolls between them. Down toward my end of the bar, things were a bit more refined, with folks savoring selections from Banzai’s cocktail list and eyeing each other’s generously portioned
dim sum with envy (the grass always seems greener on the other side of the fence, but in this case both sides were lush and verdant). I was sipping an American Pie, a concoction of whiskey, reduced apple cider, and cinnamon that struck just the right warm, cozy note for a chilly March night, and nibbling at a plate of white, fluffy steamed buns full of shredded duck slathered with a spicy barbecue sauce and finished with a bit of scallion ($6.50). The couple nearby were gushing over a plate full of crab rangoons while drinking a rum-based cocktail arrestingly called The Walking Dead. They were so effusive in their praise of the rangoons that I had to order a plate for myself, and they were right — they were sensational. Grammatico has always liked to play with his food; that’s one of the hallmarks of the menu at Piranha, and the crab rangoons that he put on the menu over at Banzai ($5.50) are an upscale riff on the Chinese restaurant staple. They offer an approximately 50-50 mix of what tasted like high-quality crab meat and probably a ricottacream-cheese blend with scallions encased in empanada-sized pockets of fried wonton skins. The result is elegant, creamy, and eminently satisfying, particularly when accompanied by a drink that seems to distill the essence of summer in a glass: a cucumber lemonade made
Banzai, though, is mostly about sushi. Grammatico and his newly installed executive chef at Banzai, Joachim Quintana, both learned — or at least honed — their sushi skills at California Rollin’ in Village Gate. Quintana was among the first people that Grammatico brought on board when he opened Piranha. Both men are squarely in the tradition of eclectic, even odd-sounding maki, rolling cream cheese, mango, red-curry chicken, and bacon along with tuna, escolar, octopus, salmon, and smoked eel in rice and nori. The results are tasty and remarkably well composed. Sushi at Piranha in the early days tended to be a bit more loosely constructed, the rolls sometimes cut unevenly or falling apart under the weight of Grammatico’s attempts to stuff just one more thing into rolls already burstingly full. Almost five years of making sushi daily has turned Grammatico into a master roll-maker, and he’s clearly taught his skills to everyone who rolls sushi for him. Banzai’s rolls are precisely cut and never mashed as might happen with a knife that’s not razor sharp. Sure, the ends are a bit messy, and the rice is not quite as tightly bound as it might be, but the rolls themselves are tasty and crowd pleasing. Spicy tuna with basil, a Grammatico signature, found its way over from Piranha, as did the Spider and Sea Monster rolls. New creations, though, have also shown up. Spicy shrimp and creamy-cool avocado covered in ever-so-slightly briny salmon make the Acapulco Gold roll ($11) a winner. The charmingly named Delicious Fishes roll ($9) stuffed with bits of ultramild escolar avocado, chili pepper, and diced tomato drizzled with lemon juice and finished with deep-fried onions is vaguely and pleasantly reminiscent of ceviche. But I’m a sucker for bacon, and the Hot Rod roll ($10.50) in which crunchy bits of the stuff are incorporated into the rice on both the inside and outside of the roll along with smoked eel, cream cheese, avocado, and scallion did not disappoint. Smoked eel and bacon are a natural complement to each other, salty and meaty foils for cheese and avocado all pulled together by, oddly, the nori, which is usually a fairly neutral background player. While his other rolls are pretty and tasty, it’s the Hot Rod that shows us that Grammatico still has a taste for whimsy in his food, and that Banzai isn’t likely to remain staid and sober for very long.

On the second EP, “Sex,” in particular, the quartet demonstrates the ability to alternate between sticky-sweet ballads and anthemic pop rock with utmost grace. With each new release’s new tweaks and progressions, and with a debut full length on the way, the band continues to excel at attention-grabbing pop music; a trend one can only hope continues. — BY DAVE LABARGE

[ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
loose/tight and had an incredible groove and feel. What an awesome new band. Headliner 5Head, which was mostly to blame for the copious crowd along with the gaggle of fine females lapping up the boogie ringside, exploded with a slick set of ska/ pop that most ska/pop bands only think about in the shower. New tunes and old ones brought on another new dance we’re going to call the Skankin’ Sardine. I tell ya, it doesn’t get much more fun than this. I’m not intentionally following Minds Open Wide (no shame if I was), but the band seems to pop up on bills in a variety of venues all over the map. The band is an interesting study in extreme dynamics and stop/start control. The covers are more tongue-in-cheek than anything else, and during the band’s brief set at The California Brew Haus on Saturday night I arrived at one suggestion. In much the same way that blues clubs around the United States have banned “Mustang Sally” from being covered, rock clubs should get together and enforce an injunction on “War Pigs.” Let the crowd howl, “Oh lord, yes” to something else.
Out of the oblivion of Memphis low-fi rockers’ The Oblivions emerged The Reigning Sound, a raw and low-down outfit full of Muscle Shoals muscle and stacks of Stax. The band rocked unpretentiously and unparalleled. Nobody did it better. Nobody, that is, until the advent of Rochester’s The Fox Sisters. This band of brothers is a deep-dish, double-scoop of rock ’n’ roll talent. It’s a savage wail that runs deep from musical histories that, if added up, collectively equal dead. You’ve got members of Dog’s Life, The Quitters, Hinkley, Veluxe, The Thundergods, and that’s before you even get to drummer Rob Filardo’s resume. The band rocked an unbelievably packed house at Abilene Friday night. I think the crowd inadvertently — and out of necessity — invented a new dance called The Sardine. It’s easy; just rub your body all over the bodies of the people shoehorned in around you. It was so crowded I went home with someone else’s wallet. It was so crowded that when the girl next to me sneezed, she covered my mouth. The music was a full shot-fromthe-hip delivery of blue-eyed soul and twisting r ‘n’ b. The band was locked in

When Person began his career
in the mid-1960’s it was a time of upheaval in the jazz world. Players like John Coltrane were taking the tenor Saxophonist Houston Person performs this week as part of Jazz 90.1’s Meet saxophone on a ride the Artist series. PHOTO BY GENE MARTIN to the stratosphere. “Ornette Coleman and others were farther out than ’Trane,” says Person. “Everybody was doing their own thing.

He came out of Houston Person the rhythm and blues bands.” THURSDAY, MARCH 21 But while Coltrane, Coleman, and others RADISSON HOTEL, RIVERSIDE, greats like Sonny Rollins and Wayne Shorter 120 E.

On his latest album, career remain centered around the tenor “Naturally,” Person injects a bit more into sax. When it comes to soul-jazz, Person has classics like “My Foolish Heart” and “That’s been at the top of the genre for six decades. All.” “I improvised solos that were more Through all the different styles coursing bluesy than jazzy,” he says. through those decades — from hard bop, through fusion, to avant-garde — Person has The blues influence is not surprising been steadfast in his dedication. considering that blues was on the radio when “I know that I always wanted to play Person was growing up.

Playing it straight
“Every home had a piano,” says Person. “My mother played piano and I took lessons.” Person switched to sax lessons after receiving his tenor, but his real jazz education came several years later during his military service. Stationed in West Germany in the mid-1950’s, Person played in a band with some future jazz greats. “That was my learning experience,” says Person. “Eddie Harris was very helpful to me. Cedar Walton — every weekend we played together. And Don Menza was there, too. We had a lot of fun and I learned everything from those guys.” Six decades after his military experience, Walton is the pianist on Person’s latest album. His saxophone prowess developed further at the University of Hartford’s Hartt School in Connecticut. “They didn’t have any jazz there, it was strictly classical,” says Person, who still loves the great composers. “I would lean toward Bach and then the French guys, Debussy and Ravel, and then Franz Liszt — he was an improviser. So was Bach; I don’t know how he came up with those things every Sunday.” Person did not have too many encounters with the more experimental side of jazz, although in 1984 he recorded an album with adventurous pianist Ran Blake. “We went to school at the same time,” Person says. “He was at Bard and he’d come up to Hartford to hang out. He’s far out but he’s far in, too. He kept on top of the roots of jazz, gospel music, and blues. He’s a little like Cecil Taylor, plus he’s a wonderful guy.” Person’s longest musical association was with singer Etta Jones. They performed together for 35 years, until her death in 2001. What was the secret of their longevity? “She felt comfortable,” says Person. “She was a great singer. I always tried to get her to go out on her own, but she was comfortable in that situation. She didn’t want the hassles of leading a group. She had no ego. I played half a set and she played half a set.” Most musical careers have ebbs and flows;
artists who are hot one year sometimes can’t find an audience the next. But Person has never had a lull. “I’ve had a good run,” says Person, who is now in his late 70s. “I formed personal relationships by booking the band myself. I learned early that I could blow my own horn better than anybody else, so I got out there and did it. “Now I’ve got to figure out a way to slow down. I just went on a whirlwind West Coast tour,” Person says. “I can’t do that anymore, but I’m doing it. I play wherever. Whenever they call, I’m there.”

PROGRESSIVE JAZZ | BILL FRISELL
Famed author and pal-o-mine Charles Benoit once described the two schools of writing to me: plotting and plodding. The plotters lay it out ahead of time, the plodders discover as they go. Bill Frisell is a plodder, in this case with a Tele in lieu of a typewriter. I mean, how could he know where he was going with Beautiful Dreamers (his guitar/cello ensemble)? Frisell is prolific, having played guitar on more than 250 recordings. He has worked with masters like Elvin Jones and Ron Carter, and interpreted the music of Elvis Costello and Burt Bacharach. Frisell as a performer is a minimalist, his back frequently to the audience. But if you clear a little head space for the cat, his plodding will take you places you’ve never gone. Bill Frisell plays Sunday, March 24, 7 p.m., at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $35-$55. waterstreetmusic.com.— BY FRANK DE BLASE

MONDAY, MARCH 25 [ JAZZ ] HONKY TONK | WAYNE HANCOCK
DJ/ELECTRONIC | NINA FLOWERS
Before Hank III nasally announced a return of outlaw country to the outlaws, there was Texas troubadour Wayne Hancock. A songwriter since he was 12, Hancock landed in 1995 with “Thunderstorms and Neon Signs.” He also contributed heavily to the aforementioned Williams’ debut. Hancock is the real deal, a throwback to general stores and sawdust floors with an affinity for the two-step. His touring guitarist, Mark Mencher, is a simply amazing guitarist from the Scotty Moore school of rollicking finger-style. His twangin’ with Hancock’s sangin’ makes this the show of the week. Yee haw!
If you don’t watch “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” then I pity you. It is a brilliant mix of entertainment and inspiration, and the costumes and performances routinely put out by the drag-queen participants are astonishing to behold. Nina Flowers is the universally beloved runner-up of Season 1 of the show, and in addition to being a fierce queen with a brilliant visual style, she is also DJ. This weekend Nina will come to Rochester’s Tilt for three shows over two nights. On Friday, March 22, Nina will be in DJ mode. On Saturday, March 23, see Nina in all her full performance glory as she takes to the stage in two drag sets. If you have any interest in drag or just want to take in a seasoned, artistically bold performer, this is not to be missed. Andale, locas!

Beyond black and white: the forest for the trees “Race: Are We So Different?” THROUGH APRIL 28 ROCHESTER MUSEUM AND SCIENCE CENTER, 657 EAST AVE. 271-4320, RMSC.ORG MONDAY-SATURDAY 9 A.M.-5 P.M., SUNDAY 11 A.M.-5 P.M., UNTIL 9 P.M. ON THURSDAYS, MARCH 28 AND APRIL 25 | $11-$13, FREE TO MEMBERS AND KIDS UNDER 3 [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
I have visited the “Race” exhibit at Rochester Museum and Science Center twice so far, and both times caught college classes crowding the different stations, with students and teachers strolling in pairs or small groups and discussing with one another — and with community members — the heavy things that we must discuss. I witnessed people coming together in earnest to hear each other and to help each other understand, having halting, carefully measured, and at times awkward conversations. The show is a good stepping stone for the community, but made effective only by the patience and respect we are willing to offer each other going forward. With its heavy focus on reading and listening, the exhibit skews toward an adult crowd. But with adult guidance it could be beneficial for young children as well. The show offers a wealth of information about variations 18 CITY MARCH 20-26, 2013
in the human race, covering a lot of ground, from how geographic location has affected human variety, to race as a social construct used to control and shape human society throughout history. People from countless different backgrounds and combinations of cultures convey their experiences via video and in quotes. One section holds instruments once used to measure differences and define us into ever-increasing categories. Another station discusses slavery and servitude, exploring the literal and legal ways that racial definitions have shackled humans. Yet another offers the historic horrors of segregation and Apartheid, which endure as open sores in American and other cultures, but which we overlook in current situations around the world. Videos playing in a newspaper stand tackle the hideous twin issues of racism and classism and the increasing divides between citizens as they struggle and throw one another under the bus. Viewing the exhibit will be uniquely complicated for each visitor, as well-meaning openness wars with insidiously ingrained prejudices and all manner of memories. A section about the U.S. Census asks viewers to vote on whether they think the demographic questionnaire’s question on ethnic background should include the multitude of complexities, be more simplified, or omit the question of race altogether. Other interactive parts of the exhibit include an individual opinion-based survey
on which people around the world we deem as “white,” as well as two stands where visitors may look at their own skin under a magnifying camera. At one of these, information is provided about how sunlight and vitamins, not race, determine our skin pigmentation. At the other, a photograph is taken of our flesh, which is added to a digital mosaic of the human prism. The exhibit vaguely explores how we are still manipulated by the idea of race in a section about the first race-specific drug, BiDil, a prescription drug used to treat African Americans with congestive heart failure, which was approved by the FDA in 2005. At this section, quoted doctors debate whether there is any concrete evidence to support race-specific medicine and treatments, and after reading what they had to say, it seems far more likely that pill developers are just trying to sell pills. But that’s about as far as visitors are guided
with regards to how the concept of racial differences manipulates our thoughts and actions today. Missing from the exhibit is an exploration of how ongoing prejudices guide each of us in sneaky ways even today, not only those we deem backwards souls, at whom we can shake our heads. Also not addressed is scripture-based racism, and how perceived rights to specific scraps of land and their resources are bolstered by the concepts of “chosen people” and “manifest destiny.”
The ever-increasing problem of classism is touched on in various spots throughout the exhibit, but the connection isn’t quite made about the ongoing usefulness of racism by the financial elite to help maintain classism. Racism is a big facilitator of classism; the people hurt by racism are also hurt a great deal by classism as well. We pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, we fight amongst our impoverished selves over scraps. Of particular interest is a wall on which people weigh in about the significance of electing a black president vs. the reality of racism in modern America. Lacking from the exhibit is a clear delineation between personally learned and practiced racism and institutionalized racism, and the reality that while both must be fought, we cannot defeat one by defeating the other. We cannot feel good about eliminating racism from our daily lives if we uphold racist laws (for example, the disparities in the standards of punishments for the possession and sale of certain substances put in motion by the Rockefeller Drug Laws), merely because they are laws. Institutional racism makes us incurious about the discrepancies between neighborhoods within the same city. It makes it easier to swallow the story of extremism in the Middle East and Africa and ignore our own. It reduces the innocent casualties to our aggressive resource-grab from whole lives to an unfeeling number. We can easily find anecdotes from soldiers who have said that once in Afghanistan, it became clear that racism was the tool by which our politicians took us to war. Ongoing racism dulls American citizens’ sharp awareness of our own selfishness, as well as the bigger threats to us in authority at home. I left the second visit to the museum curious if any other animal group on this earth has showed signs of discrimination against members of its own species based on physical trait variations. Then I struggled. This is certainly something that we could set forth to study, but to what end? We could try to determine what survival purpose prejudices might serve, but we already know we don’t want to live like animals, so we can find no excuse in brutal nature. We live in a time with more open access to information than ever before, but we have been lazy with it. We already know that technology’s potential to connect us has failings, that the explosion of information has also created an illusion of understanding and a new breed of narcissism. Our patience for cultivating depth in our relationships and especially beyond the home, into the community, is steadily slipping. Which is not to say that efforts toward these ends are not being made — this very exhibit is a step in the right direction — but individual initiative needs to catch fire and spread.

DANCE | RIVER NORTH DANCE CHICAGO
If the first teases of spring haven’t gotten you longing for the summer’s heat, the sexy, jazz-based choreography of internationally acclaimed River North Dance Chicago will. On the scene since1989, the company is beloved for its bold, emotive, theatrical dance, and has been the subject of three Emmy-winning documentaries on the company and the individual stories of its dancers. Three members of the company hail from Western New York, including Rochester-born Hayley Meier, who is a former member of Rochester City Ballet. The company has performed throughout the United States and abroad, and in 2012 completed a 28-city tour through Germany, Switzerland, and Russia. The dance group will perform one night only, on Saturday, March 23, at 8 p.m. in the Callahan Theatre at Nazareth College Arts Center (4245 East Ave.). Tickets to the show cost $30-$60.

FILM | WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH FILM SERIES
It’s the merry month of March, so it’s time for the Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender and Women’s Studies’ annual showcase of girls on film. SBAI and WXXI will host “Women & Power: Women’s History Film Series,” with 10 stories about women across many cultures, to be screened at the Little Theatre (240 East Ave.) from March 22 to March 28. Among this year’s features are “Invisible War” (pictured; screens Friday, March 22, 7 p.m.), about the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military; “Boxing Girls of Kabul” (Saturday, March 23, 1 p.m.), which follows a group of young Afghan women who strive to become world-class boxers; “The Price of Sex” (Tuesday, March 26, 7 p.m.), about Eastern European sex trafficking ad abuse; and “Water Children” (Wednesday, March 27, 7 p.m.), which explores the cycle of life through the eyes of a Japanese-Dutch pianist. Tickets for each film cost $5, and many of the screenings will be followed by a talk-back with a panel discussion. For more information, call 258-0400 or visit thelittle.org. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

LECTURE | BREEDING ENDANGERED ANIMALS
For decades preservation endeavors have worked to prolong/ revive myriad endangered species. But for various reasons, there are complications in getting some animals to breed in captivity. Learn more about this cumbersome topic at this week’s Science on the Edge lecture, “The Science and Technology of Breeding Endangered Species when Mother Nature Needs a Helping Hand.” The talk takes place on Wednesday, March 27, 7:30 p.m. at Rochester Museum and Science Center (657 East Ave.), and the speaker will be Terri Roth, VP of Conservation and Science/CREW Director at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden (pictured). The talk will explore how changes in the natural environment can disrupt reproductive efficiency, and how cutting-edge technology has helped scientists to learn more about the needs of particular species — and to produce offspring. A local connection: the world’s first artificial insemination attempt with a polar bear occurred at the Seneca Park Zoo in Rochester. Tickets are $15 ($14 for RMSC members) or $8 for students ($7 for members). For more information, call 697-1942 or visit rmsc.org. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

THEATER | “BOB”
We all know the rags-to-riches story of the American Dream, in which a disadvantaged individual rises to one of various tops by virtue of his own will and initiative. “Bob,” the comedic production currently presented at Geva Theatre Center’s NextStage (75 Woodbury Blvd.), follows just such a journey in its title character, who was born on Valentine’s Day in the bathroom of a White Castle restaurant.

Bob will be played by Rochester Native Dan Triandiflou, who is now based in Atlanta.

THEATER | “PHOTOPLAY”
Lively creativity can arise from minimal material, and at times, artists will place deliberate restrictions and constraints on a project in order to see what emerges. Producer John Borek’s latest conceptual art piece, “PhotoPlay,” will consist of 20 90-second plays to be performed inside a photo booth, and will take place at 7 p.m. on Sunday, March 24, at MuCCC (142 Atlantic Ave.). As explained in the press release, “‘PhotoPlay’ aspires to present the world’s shortest plays on the world’s smallest stage.” Interested parties have the chance to participate by submitting a play that is suitable for all audiences, requires minimal set-up and props, and makes creative use of the photo-booth environment to the director at spencer@ spencerchristaino.com. Playwrights are encouraged to direct and cast their own works. The first 30 plays submitted will be performed. The event is free to attend, but a donation to MuCCC is requested.

I stand by all previous statements I’ve made about trading our freezing, depressing, and drunken New Year holiday for the traditional Persian New Year celebration of Nowruz, which is celebrated in the springtime. What could be more logical or lovely than pausing to revel in the new life stirring and budding all around you, the return of the songbirds, the longer-lasting daylight? You can take part in Nowruz on Sunday, March 24 (slightly after the vernal equinox on March 20), 1-5 p.m., at the Memorial Art Gallery (500 University Ave.). This year’s theme is “Ode to Wine: A Program of Poetry, Art, and Culture,” and the afternoon will include a presentation of the origin of Nowruz by RIT professors Shahin Monshipour and Robert Dunbar, a lecture and poetry recitation with Dr. Fatemeh Keshavarz (pictured), Persian dance performances, live music, Sofreh Haft Seen displays (the traditional table setting of Nowruz which may include green sprouts, goldfish, eggs, hyacinth, and garlic, among other items), and guided tours of the gallery. There is a suggested donation of $5. For more information, call 276-8900 or visit mag.rochester.edu. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

“The Call” (R), DIRECTED BY BRAD ANDERSON NOW PLAYING
Her appearance in “The Call” suggests that Halle Berry, who’s been very busy lately, occupies a position in Hollywood as a kind of female counterpart to those male stars who specialize in action movies. Aside from playing Catwoman, she also serves as one of the charter members of the X-Men in that blockbuster franchise. Most recently, she appeared in multiple roles in the many-layered, fascinating, flawed “Cloud Atlas,” both as hero and victim of her particular stories.

That hero/victim duality victim nicely defines the traditional role of leading female actors in American cinema. Beginning with the wonderful Fay Wray in “The Most Dangerous Game” and “King Kong,” the scream queen ultimately manages to defeat the menace that threatens her throughout the initial scenes and sequences of any given movie. That pattern distinguishes the work of such women as Adrienne Barbeau, Linda Hamilton, and Sigourney Weaver; it describes Berry’s roles in “Gothika” and now, “The Call.” In “The Call” Berry plays Jordan Turner, a 911 dispatcher for the Los Angeles police department who encounters, first electronically, then physically, that favorite contemporary villain, a serial killer. The movie opens with Turner responding to a call from a panic-stricken teenager who hears a prowler outside her home. Turner alerts the police and guides the young woman to a hiding place, but the intruder finds her and mocks Turner on the victim’s cell phone. The action restarts six months later, as a guilt-stricken Turner, still suffering anxiety attacks from

her experience, finds it all happening again. A frightened teenager, Casey Weldon (Abigail Breslin), abducted from a shopping mall, calls 911 from the trunk of the kidnapper’s car. Employing her considerable skills and a deep sense of empathy, Jordan Turner tries to calm her and talk her through her ordeal. The movie proceeds swiftly along the parallel tracks of Jordan Turner’s desperate efforts to guide Casey through the horrible situation and Casey’s desperate efforts to escape her captor. Both of them come up with some ingenious ploys, but the kidnapper, growing increasingly vicious, foils them again and again. All of that action plays out within the context of Jordan’s attempts to locate the kidnapper’s car on the Los Angeles freeways, and to identify the man himself. Like so many American movies, “The Call” creates much of its appeal from its concentration on sheer process. It shows in fascinating detail the procedures by which the 911 dispatchers and the police track down a single car among the millions on the Los Angeles streets, then identify its driver, and engage in pursuit. Refreshingly, although the automobile occupies a central place in the plot, the director, Brad Anderson, refrains from the usual high-speed chase, punctuated by collisions and explosions. Perhaps because of his lengthy experience in television, Anderson maintains an admirable efficiency throughout the movie, extracting considerable tension from the materials without

ever diminishing its sense of authenticity. The rich context of contemporary high-tech police methods never interferes with the film’s fine sense of pacing. He also employs a purely visual means of providing a sad and even sympathetic back story for the criminal’s motivation and methods; the kidnapper, Michael Foster (Michael Eklund), owes more than a little of his personality and actions to the immortal Norman Bates. Looking a little less glamorous than usual, the beautiful Halle Berry performs adequately in a role that fits neatly with the characters she’s played recently, with a combination of emotionalism and cool control, and in this case intimating the awareness that Jordan Turner herself teeters on the brink of hysteria and despair. Abigail Breslin, who must project suffering and frenzy practically throughout the entire film, looks exactly like the insecure adolescent she portrays, but also convincingly demonstrates that her horrible experience enables her to find a kind of maturity. Although playing a psychotic killer seems somewhat less than rewarding, Michael Eklund may actually deserve the most praise for his performance. His determined intensity, which approaches closer and closer to utter insanity as his situation grows more desperate, expresses itself in some absolutely convincing facial expressions and body language. The possible drawback to his success may also derive from Anthony Perkins’s Norman Bates — a career sometimes blighted by typecasting as a madman.
In the Oscar-nominated documentary “The Gatekeepers,” a gripping recounting of the history of the long-standing IsraeliPalestinian conflict, Israeli filmmaker Dror Moreh has achieved a remarkable feat. Not only in creating a powerful, passionate, and clear-eyed examination of an exceedingly complex subject, but in miraculously convincing all six surviving former heads of Shin Bet, Israel’s secret internal security agency, to be interviewed on camera, for the first time ever. The men are each given the opportunity to talk about particulars of their job, going into detail about specific operations and events. They discuss their successes as well as their failures, including the 1984 Kav 300 bus hijacking, in which Shin Bet officers brutally executed two of the perpetrators immediately after their capture, as well as the assassination of
A still from “The Gatekeepers.”
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995. Given their histories, it’s often shocking how, given the gift of hindsight, each man has evolved beyond the black-and-white ideology that their job required, and learned to see the situation as it truly is: an endless landscape painted in nothing but shades of gray. “When you retire, you become a bit of a leftist,” as one explains it. Over the years, most seem to have grown increasingly critical of Israel’s tactics, and several even express their full support in granting Palestinian statehood. Occasionally Moreh’s interviews take on the tone of an interrogation, prodding and applying pressure to his subjects when they threaten to clam up. But for the most part all six men seem perfectly willing to talk, and they all come across as thoughtful and complicated individuals. Listening to them speak about the morality of participating in government-sanctioned violence in the name of achieving peace, one can’t help but wonder if these interviews were something of a relief, giving them the chance to open up about the things they’ve done and seen, after years and even decades of silence. It’s still more than a little chilling to hear them talk about using targeted assassinations, weighing the consequences of taking out a supposed threat against the collateral damage of possible innocent lives lost. At one point or another, all express longing for the clarity of a “clean” operation that doesn’t require such choices, and regret for how rarely those easy decisions present themselves. Clearly, the costs of those choices weigh on them all. Considering that those choices continue to be made, on both sides of the conflict, it’s not at all surprising that all the men remain pessimistic about prospects for peace in the future. “The future is very dark,” one admits late in the film.
Moreh has crafted a stylish and compelling film, and he’s fond of utilizing impressive 3D location modeling throughout the film as a means to provide his audience visuals for certain events that lack archival footage. These flourishes are sometimes an unnecessary distraction during the interviews, especially when the words in and of themselves are so riveting. “Planet of Snail” is the final presentation in the Dryden Theatre’s “Cinema Guild” series, which has screened a wide-ranging selection of recent movies from the foreign and independent film distributor, and it’s as sweet and life-affirming a film as you could ever wish to see. The South Korean documentary, from director Yi Seung-jin, offers a glimpse into the lives of husband and wife Young-chan and Soon-ho. He’s deaf and blind, while she has a spinal deformity that has limited her growth so that she’s not even half the height of her husband, yet together they form the most extraordinary couple. Completely observational, Seung-jin immerses his audience, providing no exposition so that we must glean any personal background information from conversations we overhear as the pair goes about their daily lives. They seem to act as a solitary unit when they’re together (which is always), as Soon-ho communicates with Young-chan by tapping words out onto his fingers. In what’s possibly the most beautiful scene in a film that’s loaded with them, we watch as the couple must act as a team to complete the deceivingly simple task of changing a light bulb which she can’t reach and he can’t see. A lovely and gentle film that never condescends to its subjects, it’s impossible not to feel moved by the love, patience, and devotion these two individuals have for one another.

Proudly serving the Rochester area.
Lovely on Linden 66 Linden Street The house at 66 Linden Street is a sweet example of the Queen Anne style. The dominant front-facing gable features a handsome bay window on the first floor, scalloped shingle work alternating with the wood clapboards on the second story, and, at the top, a decorative half-round attic window and a sunburst gable ornament. A flagstone walk leads to the front porch. The wood paneled and glazed front door is flanked by leaded and stained glass side lights. Inside is a small hallway, the starting point for the circular floor plan. A pair of French doors with divided lights leads into the spacious living area, which is open from the front of the house to the back. A cozy front sitting area is well lit by the south-facing bay window, which also features a pleasant bench seat. A slightly larger living space follows and leads through a wide, framed opening into the dining room. Here a set of French glass doors gives a pleasing sense of openness and leads to a small deck and the backyard. The convenient kitchen is evident with the large, open pass-through off the dining room. A small pantry area leads to the cheerful and efficient kitchen space, which features beaded board wood paneling on the ceiling and portions of the wall. Other attractive features include wood cabinets, wooden trim around the counters, a decorative tile backsplash above the built-in stove, and a second open storage area at the top of the staircase leading to the basement.
The circular floor plan ends at the handsome front hall staircase featuring painted balusters and a dark stained wood railing and newel post. The second floor offers three comfortable bedrooms connected by a long hall and a full bath, which has been recently updated and contains a skylight. Throughout the house are oak floors and molded door and window trim, serving as constant reminders of the past. A paved driveway leads to a one-car garage; a wooden fence on the driveway is part of the backyard perimeter fence which keeps pets and/or small children out of the streets. The backyard also features a lovely large spruce tree and a raised bed for growing vegetables or flowers. The house is located in the lively South Wedge neighborhood, a location that provides all the advantages of urban living. Neighborhood amenities include easy access to downtown, Highland Park, historic Mt. Hope Cemetery, a farmer’s market, as well as popular shops, restaurants and services on nearby South Avenue. This well-maintained property has 1430 square feet and is offered at $139,900. Contact Carol Remley (585-2481020) or Carl Hofstetter (585-248-1038) at Nothnagle Realtors for more information. by Ann Parks Ann is a Landmark Society volunteer.
