Protests and their neighbors
“The Holy War Next Door” (News) gave a great deal of space to the anti-choice movement. This group loves this exposure, and City played right into their hands. Yes, the neighbors across from Planned Parenthood have worked with the police for many years but have not been able to curtail the activities. The residents on University Avenue also have their right to a quiet and peaceful living space. What about the clients, staff, and volunteer escorts? The escort volunteers spend many volunteer hours calming clients and distracting children from this hate-mongering group. The anti-choicers spread misconceptions and promote fear. The article was inappropriate and one-sided. Shame on City Paper. J. DAVIDSON
Tom Baglio’s letter (“Racism’s Status,” Feedback) is a perfect example of white privilege and denial of racism. Mr. Baglio uses the fact that our president and attorney general are black and a figure of 20 percent of the federal workforce being black as an indication that racism in America has been eliminated. It is true that racism in federal hiring is less likely to occur, because the majority of those jobs are military and civil service. These jobs are attractive to African Americans and other 2 CITY
minorities because they are much less likely to be denied employment because of race, which would be a violation of federal employment laws. The remainder of employment in this country isn’t as strict at following discrimination laws. An indication of this is found in the August 2013 employment numbers, which show white unemployment at 6.4 percent and African American unemployment at 13 percent. The remainder of Mr. Baglio’s letter uses the same flawed logic to make his incorrect determination that racism no longer exists in America. Would he trade places and give up his, I assume, white privilege to have lived his life as an African-American facing the reality of that life today? I think he would choose not to make that choice. For those interested in developing a better understanding of white privilege and denial of racism, I suggest reading two of Tim Wise’s books, “White Like Me” and “Between Barack and a Hard Place.” ROBIN DETTMAN
We first thought Tom Baglio’s “Racism’s Status” was written by someone from a nation other than the US (Feedback). No one grounded in reality would believe that because the US has its first bi-racial president, and its first black attorney general, and because blacks compose “roughly 20 percent of the federal workforce” – (while at the same time, unemployment rates among black people in many communities are quadruple the rates for whites) – individual and institutionalized racism have been eliminated. These have always been deeply embedded within the social, economic, political, and cultural fabric of US society and are reflected within every major institution in the society. The idea that nearly half of the federal government’s “entitlements,” especially
OCTOBER 9-15, 2013
corporate welfare, “goes to black Americans” is not only laughable but also ludicrous. Mr. Baglio is correct about one thing: his fictitious account of “racism today” is definitely not the same as the reality of pervasive, historical, individual, and institutionalized racism, which people such as Reverend Jesse Jackson, Reverend Al Sharpton, and many others continue to point out and work against. Instead, Mr. Baglio’s account is more akin to those advocated and perpetuated by Rush, Glenn, Sean, Michael, and others. We challenge him to identify a single person who is teaching his “children and grandchildren to be ashamed for sins they did not commit (slavery, bigotry, etc.).” Hopefully many teachers are teaching their children, grandchildren, and others that the “sins” and atrocities of many of their ancestors are directly connected to today’s social, economic, political, and cultural conditions, including the huge success and prosperity gaps between white and black Americans. And hopefully they’re teaching that these problems will not just magically correct themselves but instead – since they were intentionally created and maintained – intentional actions will be necessary to correct them. Hopefully, they’re also teaching that all of us should share in the responsibility of corrective action – perhaps especially those who benefit most from the lop-sided social, economic, political, and cultural playing field, which results (to a large degree) from past atrocities. Apparently Mr. Baglio believes that citing a few examples of criminal behavior by black people diminishes the ongoing residual effects of the most inhumane, systematic exploitation, oppression, and degradation of an entire race of people that the modern world has ever known. It does not.
For Mr. Baglio to imagine that he knows what blacks who suffered one of the modern world’s most destructive, centurieslong tragedies would think regarding today’s society is disrespectful and insensitive. To say that “millions of white Americans paid the ultimate price for freedom that black Americans enjoy today” is indicative of deepseated ignorance, especially when considering the percentages of black people who have sacrificed life and limb, not only in the US Civil War, but in every war that the racist US nationstate has been involved in. Finally, for someone, especially a white person, to argue that individual and institutionalized racism have been eliminated from US society, and that “there are no more debts to be paid or reparations to be had” is representative of the worst form of denial.

The RPO’s future
I’m flabbergasted. Introducing “More Than Filling the Gap” (Classical Music), Paloma Capanna “worried about plunging ticket sales and musicians without an anchor,” but now she is more than satisfied, encouraged that the Rochester Philharmonic will have “a thrilling season.” This is based on phone calls to all 13 guest conductors. Imagine. Each conductor had “high praise for the RPO.” Unless I overlooked something, only one of
these men has ever heard the orchestra live. Maybe, though, there is truly nothing to worry about. If memory serves, several RPO musicians and board members have gone on record over the past year about how it doesn’t matter who is on the podium, anyway. The orchestra is great, period; wonderful attitude for the season and years to come. As one who in the past has paid cash at the box office for RPO tickets, this writer’s attitude and outlook are markedly different. The RPO shot itself in both feet when it showed Arild Remmereit to the door, and I predict an extended period for recovery. MARTIN FASS
Grading the teachers
As a Webster teacher, I completely agree with Adam Urbanski’s comment (“Hundreds of City Teachers Appealing APPR,” News Blog). City teachers are not worse than suburban teachers. I worked hard last year. I earned my “H” (“highly effective”). If I taught in the city, I might have a “D” (“developing”) or an “I” (“ineffective”) on my rating instead. Unfortunately, Cuomo’s Annual Professional Performance Review system makes it rational for urban educators to flee to the suburbs. Despite the State Education Department’s attempt to make statistical adjustments for high-needs student populations (my score was quite reasonably reduced for serving a lessneedy group of students last year), there is no formula powerful enough to account for the negative effects of poverty on academic achievement. So I get to walk away with my “H,” while equally qualified teachers in the city get slammed. How does this benefit city students? ANDY MITCHELL

This sure looks like a game, and a deadly serious one. It’s also blackmail. And as numerous liberal commentators are warning, if President Obama backs down, conservative Republicans will feel figure they can threaten to close down the government and default on the nation’s obligations every time they don’t get their way. White House officials apparently think they’re winning right now. But that’s a very narrow view. Republicans may lose this current round, but their real goal is to get rid of the Affordable Care Act. And part of their game plan is to turn the public against it. There, they seem to be succeeding, and they might very well parlay that success into gains in House and Senate elections next year. If they control both houses, the fledgling health-care plan could die a very quick death. And nothing else Obama pushes will ever see the light of day. While Congress spars, the next phase of the Affordable Care Act is rolling out. Technically, it hasn’t been a good start, but presumably the software and overload kinks will be worked out. That isn’t the only negative health-insurance news we’ll hear this fall, though. Many employer-provided insurance policies will be hit with doubledigit rate increases again for the coming year. We could have avoided a lot of this, of course, if we had we adopted a single-payer health-care plan. But Congress (and the insurance companies) wanted a marketbased system, with the insurance companies fully involved, so that’s what we have. For all its flaws, though, the Affordable Care Act is giving us some really good things, and with their little temper tantrums, the conservatives in Congress have been able to get the public to forget about those improvements. Insurers now have to provide numerous preventive services with no co-pay, including blood pressure, cholesterol, and depression screening and immunizations against many diseases. Young people can stay on their parents’ insurance policies until they’re 26. Insurance companies used to be able to deny insurance to people with a pre-existing condition. They used
Republicans’ goal is to get rid of the Affordable Care Act. And part of their plan is to turn the public against it. to put lifetime limits on the amount of coverage they would provide – financially crippling many people who have catastrophic diseases. They used to be able to retroactively cancel your insurance if you had made an error in filling out your insurance application, and there were numerous horror stories about companies digging through patients’ records once they faced serious illness, going to extremes to find ways to cancel their policies. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, they can’t do any of that now. And while most Americans get health insurance through their employers, millions don’t. For them, insurance will be more affordable than in the past – a huge benefit for people who have lost their jobs, those who work for small businesses that don’t provide insurance coverage, and millions of others. The Affordable Care Act isn’t perfect. But it’s far better than what the country had before. The majority of the members of Congress passed the law, and the Supreme Court says it is constitutional. And if the Republicans wanted a new referendum on the law, they got one with the presidential election of 2012: Barack Obama, whom they have loudly blamed for the law, won. So now the Republicans are resorting to shell games and magic tricks, smothering the details of an important public health initiative under exaggeration, lies, and bluster. We should learn over the next few weeks whether the rest of us are smart enough to see what they’re up to.

THE LOBSTER TRAP
“This isn’t some damn game.” That was John Boehner, digging in his heels last week as he insisted that Democrats negotiate over the Affordable Care Act. Not a game? I don’t know what else Boehner thinks the Republicans are up to. It certainly isn’t the business of running the country. And it’s not democracy (which, last time I looked, involved majority rule).

Fewer students on Main Street
The Rochester school district says that it has greatly reduced the number of students who must transfer buses downtown. The massing of students is likely contributing to recurrent violence in the area around the Liberty Pole. Most students now have an express pass to take them directly to and from school. Those students still needing to transfer have passes that only allow them to be on East Main Street for an hour.

Teachers could only appeal their evaluation if they received either an “ineffective” or “needs development” score. And the appeal has to show that there was an alleged “departure from the process,” Urbanski says. Teachers can’t appeal just because they don’t like or accept the evaluation, he says. For example, a teacher would have a case if his or her score included English language learners, but no interpreter was provided for the students, Urbanski says. Another example: evaluations based on scores on tests that students didn’t take. The appeals can be denied, upheld, or the teacher’s score may be altered. Urbanski says that the high number of appeals is a serious problem, and raises a lot of concerns about the APPR. While nearly 900 city school teachers received ratings of ineffective or needs development, Urbanski says,
no Webster teachers, for example, received those scores. And other suburban districts had only a few teachers with low evaluations, he says. “City teachers are so much worse than suburban teachers?” Urbanski says. “I could prove that isn’t true by just swapping our teachers with theirs for one year and we’ll see if we get better results.” Urbanski says that APPR is intentionally positioned to dismantle urban public schools — possibly to diminish union power — and to allow for the growth of charter schools. “If anything, APPR will make unions stronger,” he says. “There’s never been a time in recent history when they [teachers] need unions more.”
Years of declines in union membership are part of the reason that the statewide Teamsters fund is in rough shape. In 1976, 23,204 active union members paid into the fund, providing pensions for 3,657 retirees. Last year, 12,217 workers paid in to fund 16,327 retirees.

Wegmans’ contract conflict
Wegmans and local Teamsters officials will resume contract negotiations on Friday, and retirement benefits will be at the center of those talks. Last week, members of Teamsters Local 118, which represents approximately 900 Wegmans truck drivers and warehouse employees, rejected Wegmans’ final contract offer. Union leaders blasted the company’s proposal to move the union workers out of a statewide union pension fund and into the Wegmans Retirement Plan. (Teamsters officials did not return calls for comment and Wegmans spokesperson Jo Natale wouldn’t comment beyond the materials the company has sent to the media.) Wegmans plans to shift the employees into the company’s plan because the union fund has less money coming in than it is paying out. The company and the employees have been asked to contribute more to the fund, but it still isn’t turning around, says a brochure that Wegmans provided to workers and local media. And the fund has cut benefit levels twice in recent years, the brochure says. But union members may have good reason for opposing the Wegmans plan. The union pension fund and the Wegmans Retirement Plan are fundamentally different retirement benefit approaches, says Jim Bertolone, president of the Rochester & Genesee Valley Area Labor Federation.
Unshackle Upstate has released a five-point plan for job growth and lower taxes in the parts of the state that aren’t New York City. It focuses primarily on eliminating or changing certain taxes and surcharges. But Unshackle officials also highlight the potential benefits of fracking the Marcellus Shale. | Fracking could create 12,000 to 15,000 jobs in the Southern Tier, say Unshackle officials, and would generate approximately $78 million for the state in 2014-15. (The job creation figures and economic benefits of fracking are often viewed skeptically, in part because many of the jobs go to workers from outside the areas where drilling is happening.) | Unshackle Upstate is also calling for: reducing by 25 percent the income taxes for upstate residents making less than $50,000 a year; phasing out the corporate franchise tax by 2018; halving the state sales tax in upstate counties with high unemployment and declining populations; and eliminating the 18a energy assessment for upstate manufacturers — a move that would lead to slightly cheaper energy costs for manufacturing businesses. | Left unsaid is how to make up for the revenues lost through these moves. Unshackle officials say that’s not their problem — it’s the state job to fill the gap.

The pension fund will provide a lifetime benefit based on the numbers of years a worker contributed to it. But the Wegmans Retirement Plan is more like an IRA or 401(k), where the employee and employer contribute to an account, which the employee draws down in retirement. Wegmans’ proposal could also have implications for the statewide Teamsters fund. Years of declines in union membership are part of the reason for the fund’s rough shape. In 1976, 23,204 active union members paid into the fund, which provided pensions for 3,657 retirees. Last year, 12,217 workers paid in to fund 16,327 retirees. For union officials, keeping the fund viable will be increasingly difficult if they can’t add active union members or if companies like Wegmans and their union employees pull out.

ELECTIONS | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
NY’s tough call on casinos C I TY' S G E N E R A L E LEC TI O N COV E R AG E The coverage continues in the October 16 and October 23 issues. We’ll look at the elections in Greece, Irondequoit, Monroe County, and the City of Rochester, and have special coverage of the Green Party of Monroe County. The general election is Tuesday, November 5.
Mayor Tom Richards often speaks about a Rochester-area casino as an inevitability, and he could be right. The Seneca Nation’s interest in the area and the upcoming statewide vote on casino gambling almost make it feel as if casinos are closing in on all sides. But there are two distinct things happening. First, no casinos are planned for the Rochester area as a result of the referendum on the November ballot, which would permit up to seven casinos in the state. Second, the Seneca Nation of Indians has exclusive gaming right to much of New York’s western end, which means that any potential Rochester casino must be run by the Senecas. (A representative of the Seneca Nation did not return calls for comment.) And though the Seneca Nation has expressed interest in opening a casino in the Greater Rochester area, a site hasn’t been chosen and not all officials believe that casinos are the panacea for upstate’s ailing economy. “I don’t see us basing our economy on casino gambling,” Richards said in a previous interview. “It’s hard to point to another upstate city right now that has gambling that has benefited greatly from it. They get money from it, and there are certainly jobs from it. But has it turned around the city or the economy? I think that’s questionable.”
referendum, called the Upstate New York Gaming and Economic Development Act. But others say that visions of financial windfalls for communities as a result of casinos are overblown, and that all these new casinos will do is rob from existing casinos and gambling outlets. “I’m not sure where we are in the economics of this,” Richards has said. “Cuomo makes [the] argument that we shouldn’t allow this money to go to other states. Maybe he’s right about that. Nonetheless, if you look at that from a global point of view, he’s conceding that there’s only so much money here and we’re going to share it.” And casino revenues are down, including in Atlantic City. Competition from Pennsylvania casinos is thought to be responsible for Atlantic City’s predicament. A wild card was thrown into the discussion last week when Brooklyn attorney Eric Snyder filed a lawsuit against the casino proposition. The referendum’s rosy wording — “promoting job growth, increasing aid to schools, and permitting local governments to lower property taxes” — amounts to advocacy, he says, and that violates the state Constitution. The Cuomo camp says that the Board of Elections is solely responsible for the wording. But it’s worth noting that board members are appointed by politicians.
If the referendum is approved, Governor
The Seneca Nation has been eyeing the Rochester area for a casino for some time, and recently hired a local developer to investigate the possibilities. Henrietta and to a lesser extent Irondequoit have been mentioned as potential locations. Richards has said that he is opposed to a casino in downtown Rochester for the kind of statement it would make about the character of the area. “I don’t know that putting a casino in the middle of downtown is necessarily what my vision of downtown is,” he said. There are also legal and social issues that come with taking a large piece of property and putting it under the absolute control of the Seneca Nation. In exchange, the involved governments typically get a negotiated piece of the casino’s gross take, Richards said. The sovereignty issue also bothers City Council President Lovely Warren, who is the
Andrew Cuomo’s plan is to have four casinos upstate: two in the Catskills, one in the Southern Tier, and one near Albany. Eventually, three additional casinos could open in New York City. New York needs the jobs, Cuomo says, and the money from the gambling taxes that the casinos would bring. And the reality is that the state already has gambling in the form of racinos and other outlets, he says. “It’s not a question of should we have gaming or should we not have gaming,” Cuomo told the New York Times last May. “The question really is should we recognize the reality of our situation and fully participate?” According to a press release from the state’s budget office, the Western New York-Finger Lakes region would receive an additional $93.1 million annually in local government aid as a result of the November 6 CITY

Democratic candidate for mayor. “That, to me, really hurts our chances of having a casino in our downtown,” she says, “because how could you put a sovereign nation in the middle of your downtown?” Steve Siegel, formerly of the College of Hospitality and Tourism Management at Niagara University, says that politicians and the public tend to abandon their good judgment when it comes to casinos because they’re intoxicated by dollar signs. “What we rarely hear about is the devastating negative economic impact that research shows occurs when a tax-exempt casino is placed on what is claimed to be sovereign land within an urban setting,” writes Siegel in a 2011 report. All of the gain goes to the casino complex, Siegel says, and local businesses are devastated because they can’t compete with this massive nontaxable entity. “Trapping people has been the business model,” Richards said. “That’s why they give you cheap food, booze, lodging. They want you to spend your money at the gambling table. That’s the Las Vegas model, the Atlantic City model. It is the model in Niagara Falls, and one of the tensions.” “You don’t want an island of prosperity in the middle of a disenfranchised, difficult area, which is kind of what Niagara Falls wound up with,” Richards said. Harry Bronson, who represents Henrietta, Chili, and parts of the City of Rochester in the State Assembly, says his primary concern is that the public gets ample opportunity to participate in the casino discussion. “This is all a very fluid situation,” he says. “It’s not like any of this is a done deal.”

Andrea Parros moved to Rochester from her native Boston to open The Owl House in 2010, and when she left that restaurant, Parros says that some people asked her whether she’d head back east. Those people can find the answer to that question at the corner of Park and Oxford, where Parros recently debuted her warm, charming new vegan place, The Red Fern. ’“I love it here!” Parros says of Rochester. “I love the people, and I love the sense of community.” This service-industry veteran also loves a challenge, and creating vegan food in a restaurant setting will test even the most committed culinary professional. But having been diagnosed with allergies to both dairy and wheat several years ago, Parros has had plenty of time to tinker with recipes. “I’d like people to eat our food and not even notice that anything’s missing. It’s so exciting to make things that people don’t realize are vegan,” she says. Vegan food, for the three or four of you who might not know, contains no animal-derived products whatsoever, so Parros makes up for their absence with proteins like tofu, tempeh, and other soy-based products, as well as dairy substitutes like coconut milk and cashew cheese. The Red Fern’s gluten-free baked mac n’ cheese ($10) is especially impressive: creamy,
comforting, and with a cheddar-esque bite, while the ABLT ($8.75) — the A is for avocado — smacks of summer with hints of lemon, basil, and umami-rich roasted tomatoes. The Red Fern also offers breakfast all day, along with salads, snacks, smoothies, and freshly squeezed juices, and it will soon be the only restaurant in town with kombucha on tap. The wines are biodynamic, and beerwise there’s “a gluten-free bottle or two,” Parros says, along with a couple of microbrews on tap. (Plus, of course, cans of Genny.) But the first thing you see upon descending into The Red Fern is a display case full of baked goods, and after one lush bite of the mint-Oreo layer cake, or the salted-caramel cupcake, you will neither notice nor even care that butter, milk, and eggs are off the proverbial table. Says Parros, “I want to teach people that vegan food doesn’t mean sawdust.” The Red Fern is located at 283 Oxford St. It is open Tuesday-Sunday 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Food prices range from $2.50 to $10.

The paleo era
As she doled out samples of beef jerky, chatted with customers, and manned her food truck, Shaina Sidoti bounced around
with all the energy of a Tigger. So when she pauses to mention that she lost 60 pounds and alleviated her arthritis symptoms by following a paleo diet, one that eschews such things as dairy, grains, and refined foods in favor of meats and vegetables, you can’t help but pay attention. Sidoti recently quit her day job to devote her time to Effortlessly Healthy, the paleo and gluten-free food truck that she co-owns with Scott Baker. Not only can you track down the truck for a tasty, wholesome bite to eat (or possibly some of that killer jerky), but Effortlessly Healthy can come to you. Sidoti and Baker offer nicely priced paleo meal packages for anyone interested in healthy, controlled-portion eating, delivering freshly prepared food two times a week. Visit Effortlessly Healthy as part of the 24th Annual Family & Fitness Fair on Thursday, October 10, at the Dome Arena, and check out peaceloveeatpaleo.com, click over to Effortlessly Healthy’s Facebook page, or follow them on Twitter at @eatpaleoroc.

later, how things have changed: DADT has been repealed, DOMA is over, and
Indovino’s “Shoulders To Stand On: The LGBT History Of Rochester, NY.” Returning in 2013 are the Next Generation Film Series, a selection of flicks free to the under-21 set, as well as the ImageOut There! Series, a roster of films about the darker side of human nature. ImageOut continues to offer programs like the donation-fueled ImageOutreach, which provides senior discounts, sign-language interpreting, and other services to make the festival accessible to all. And this year’s ImageArt exhibition spotlights marriage equality; it’s entitled “I Do!?” and it’s on display through October 26 at Visual Studies Workshop alongside “Wish You Were Queer 4,” a benefit show and sale of original postcard-sized artwork. Mostly, though, there are movies, and lots of ’em.

Brazilian architect Lota de Macedo Soares. It’s almost the stuff of rom-com cliché, as the buttoned-down Bishop and the feisty Soares clash upon their initial encounter in 1951 Rio, but soon these formidable women are trying to harness their lives and passions into an unconventional relationship, one that includes Soares’ notentirely-ex-girlfriend. Directed by acclaimed Brazilian filmmaker Bruno Barreto (1997’s “Four Days In September”), “Reaching for the Moon” benefits greatly from stunning rainforest scenery as well as the performances of its two leads, played by Miranda Otto (Eowyn in the “Lord of The Rings” trilogy) and telenovela superstar Glória Pires, who distract from occasionally stiff line readings with monsoons of emotions both productive and destructive.

the repercussions of unchecked desire. By-the-book Borgmann is on track for a law-enforcement career and a new baby when he begins building a tentative friendship with the rebellious Engel, who manages to whip Borgmann into a lustful frenzy that threatens to destroy both his family and professional lives. As Borgmann, Hanno Koffler manages to believably convey the paralyzing confusion attendant to a total upending of what you thought was true, while Max Riemelt (you may remember him from ImageOut 2011’s sassy, trashy “We Are The Night”) does what he can with his severely underwritten catalyst. Most troublingly, though, Engel’s dogged pursuit of Borgmann teeters on the brink of sexual assault, which would never fly within a hetero setup.

Packed with awesome archival footage, this documentary by Jeffrey Schwarz (he also made the 2011 Vito Russo doc) includes interviews from a number of Milstead’s friends and contemporaries — including John Waters, of course — who regale us with tales of the aspiring beautician’s early days in Baltimore as part of Waters’ underground filmmaking crew on through his rise to counterculture notoriety as Divine. (Pro tip: there’s room for lots more eye make-up if you shave your hairline way back!). But that fame turned out to be a double-edged sword. Even as Milstead parlayed his notoriety into opportunities he was simultaneously chafing at being pigeonholed and soothing his frustrations through the comfort of food.

an unsympathetic annoyance.) Filmmaker David Lowery (“Ain’t Them Bodies Saints”) has a cowriting credit on the film’s wise script, which drops in on the lives of ordinary people holding out hope for something extraordinary. (Sunday, October 13, 3:15 p.m., Dryden Theatre) Pratibha Parmar’s starry-eyed “Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth” is a carefully constructed portrait of the Georgia sharecropper’s daughter who went on to become the first black woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, for 1982’s “The Color Purple.” Born to a strong-willed woman who demanded education, Alice Walker recounts her initial forays into writing as a way to cope, eventually landing a full ride to Atlanta’s Spelman College, where the 1960’s civil rights movement ignited her activist streak. With insights from luminaries like Gloria Steinem, Angela Y. Davis, Quincy Jones, and Walker’s former Spelman professor, the late historian Howard Zinn, “Beauty In Truth” hits all the expected bio-beats: relationships with both men and women, child-rearing, career, and especially Walker’s seemingly tireless passion for justice. (“Activism is the rent I pay for living on the planet,” says Walker.) The only quibble with the film might be an absolute lack of dissent over how amazing Walker is, leaving one to wonder about the whole truth.

Fans of ImageOut 2008’s lovely dramatic duet “Ciao” will admire Yen Tan’s feature follow-up “Pit Stop,” a beautifully executed ensemble piece revolving around a bunch of lonely souls in a blue-collar Texas town. We kinda know where it’s all headed, but most of the film follows the parallel lives of Gabe (Bill Heck) and Ernesto (Marcus DeAnda), both in the building trades, both coming out of relationships with seemingly selfish men, and both longing for connection. Gabe has the more interesting thread, thanks mostly to the suddenly everywhere Amy Seimetz (“Upstream Color”) as Gabe’s ex-wife, clearly still struggling with the fact that her one-time husband is gay while making endearingly clumsy attempts to move on.

linking it to the power of the pulpit. Yoruba Richen’s fascinating documentary “The New Black” takes us to Maryland for a chronicle of last year’s fight to pass its own marriageequality referendum, focusing specifically on the efforts of the African-American clergy and their sadly ironic attempts to deny civil rights to fellow humans. We hear from ministers who firmly believe that homosexuality is a choice, and we spend time with those working tirelessly for the passage of Question 6, including the National Black Justice Coalition’s Sharon Lettman-Hicks, who refers to marriage equality as “the unfinished business of black people being free.” The film’s best scene unfolds on a stoop during some neighborhood canvassing; one young African-American man tells the LGBT activists that he has no interest in “that gay shit,” while his friend understands exactly what’s at stake. “I got you,” he assures them.

genre of film is off the table. Until that time we have movies like “In the Name Of,” a brooding, dreamlike Polish drama about a priest at a rural reform school wrestling with desire. Initially, Father Adam’s sexuality doesn’t seem to be an issue — he and his charges really seem to like and respect each other — but both a homophobic young delinquent
and a quiet, handsome local in need of care force Father Adam to re-examine his lot.

even as he dulls his confusion and sadness with the contents of a bottle. And looking like a cross between Jon Snow and Jesus Christ is Mateusz Kosciukiewicz as the nearly silent Lukasz, who isn’t so much a flesh-and-blood man as he is a symbol of Father Adam’s struggle between human need and an otherworldly calling. (Sunday, October 13, 6:15 p.m., Dryden Theatre) One harsh reality about same-sex couples is they ain’t making a baby without a little outside help, with all the red tape, financial stress, and quid pro quo that might entail. The spare, unflinching “Two Mothers” drops us in on a happy German couple who have decided to start a family, but with both Katja (Sabine Wolf ) and Isabella (Karina Plachetka) hovering around the age of 40, timing has become important. The women quickly get an unfair crash course in a German bureaucracy that favors hetero couples, and when a justshy-of-ideal solution presents itself, the communication between Katja and Isabella begins to suffer tremendously. Many couples find themselves in the position of having to choose between a baby or a relationship, and filmmaker Anne Zohra Berrached’s intimate close-ups skillfully capture the joy, the jealousy, and what may or may not be the acceptance. (Sunday, October 13, 8:15 p.m., Little Theatre) A bittersweet comedy hailing from the Philippines, “Bwakaw” is an unexpected pleasure, a character study of a man whose crabby-bastard surface masks a lifetime of heartache and regret. “A gay man whose time has passed” is how Rene describes himself, spending his days at the postoffice job from which he already retired, fending off nosy neighbors, dictating 12 CITY OCTOBER 9-15, 2013
changes in his will to an exasperated priest, and mostly enjoying the company of his cute dog, Bwakaw. Redemption, as it were, presents itself in a surprising package, and as the loss in Rene’s life begins to escalate, he starts to realize it might be time to really live. (The recently delivered coffin in the living room also provides a none-too-subtle reminder.) It’s really nothing you haven’t seen before — scowling old coot gets new lease on life — but Eddie Garcia’s compelling lead performance, combined with writer-director Jun Lana’s refusal to pander, make a familiar trope seem fresh and alive. (Monday, October 14, 6:30 p.m., Little Theatre) This year’s ImageOut of the Archives selection is 1967’s “Portrait of Jason,” a monumentally important film rereleased in 2013 after a meticulous restoration of the elusive original print. Indie filmmaker Shirley Clarke spent one long evening with her lens trained on Jason Holliday (formerly Aaron Payne), a born raconteur who describes himself as “bonafide freaksville,” but under Clarke’s manipulative guidance provided future generations with an astonishing account of what it was like to be a gay black man in mid-century, big-city America. To be fair, the free-flowing booze certainly helps to loosen Jason’s sharp tongue as he recounts early life with a no-nonsense father (known as “Brother Tough”) and later days of hustling, drug use, stints in prison, and cozying up to the rich (“anything to keep from punching the clock from 9 to 5”). But this is Clarke’s show, too, with varying degrees of focus and severe edits, along with an escalating antagonism from

behind the camera for maximum effect. And just as we feel for the weepy, sloshy Jason, Clarke calls his bluff, and the tears dry instantly. That cabaret show would’ve been somethin’... (Tuesday, October 15, 7 p.m., Dryden Theatre) Dance aficionados should appreciate “Five Dances,” which employs some world-class choreography by the renowned Jonah Bokaer to relate the coming-of-age tale of Chip, an 18-year-old out of Kansas trying to make it in New York City. (Because if you can make it there, you can... you know.) Director Alan Brown expertly captures the backstage intrigue along with the tedium and triumph of collaborating on an intricate piece until it’s deemed perfect. Dramatically speaking, however, “Five Dances” has glaring imperfections, most obviously in the central character of Chip, played by Broadway star Ryan Steele. It’s not uncommon for a stillevolving teenager to lack maturity and self-awareness, but Chip is the one we’re meant to hang our collective hat on, and he just doesn’t elicit any real empathy with his stone-faced passive-aggression. Chip’s homophobic harpy of a mother is beyond
cartoony, and his romantic chemistry with the man we’re meant to root for is nonexistent. (Wednesday, October 16, 6:30 p.m., Little Theatre) Now, if you’re solely in the market for oodles of male full-frontal nudity and relatively graphic sex, then Alain Guiraudie’s “Stranger by the Lake” is the film for you. (The three-word review that I proffered to City film critic Adam Lubitow on my porch: “Taints for days.”) But if you’re also looking for a tense and darkly funny thriller, then this award-winning French import should do the trick, juxtaposing beachside cruising culture against, um, amoral murderer culture. Set entirely on a lovely stretch of shoreline, “Stranger by the Lake” watches Franck (Pierre Deladonchamps), who hits the beach to soak up some rays, take a quick swim, and get it on in the nearby woods. Despite — or perhaps because of — what he witnessed one evening, Franck becomes obsessed with Michel (Christophe Paou), who looks like an underwear model from 30 years ago. What ensues is a stark but suspenseful continues on page 20

[ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
I’ve determined, especially after Friday night’s show, that the Montage Music Hall needs lots of bodies in it to make it sound right and absorb some of that immense boom and swell. And there’s nothing other than laziness that keeps would-be rockers from peeling their eyeballs off the boob tube and putting themselves in front of some good ol’ loud ’n’ heavy. For Instance, as I rolled up, AFR was brandishing its set like something a Viking might use to disembowel an opponent. There was no 0; the band hit the ground at 60, cranking the intensity incrementally until the climax at the end of its brief set. People Can Be More Awesome followed with interesting percussive additives to music that sounded a lot heavier than I expected from a band that I figured more for indie rock. Who knows, maybe this is the next wave to fall under that category. It was interesting at the very least. A Beautiful Ending made its debut with a quick set of intensity that hovered
in the twilight. Singer Lisa Canarvis’ voice is as penetrating as her gaze. It was not the least bit shrill, but it capably cut through and rode the band’s seriously pounding sonic swirl. There was a sense of elegance to its largess. I liked it, I liked it. Like a cross between Hasil Adkins and those bearded, square-dancing hillbillies that Bugs Bunny had to deal with, Filthy Still rocked a three-quartersfull Abilene Saturday night with an unparalleled redneck fury. Straight outta Providence, Rhode Island, the band was reminiscent of Hank III in attitude, but much more raw and to the bone. With its utility man swapping back and forth between resonator and banjo, it was pure Appalachian punk-grass stomp ‘n’ holler. Following that hootenanny was Denver’s Reno Divorce, a band that collectively blasts out four-barreled rock music a la the Cadillac Tramps or Social Distortion. It was slick, tight, and loud, with a cocky lyrical swagger and come-on riding shotgun with its Les Paul attack.

Music Rodland’s efforts are resulting not only in more concert-goers donating more and more food for the cupboards of Rochester’s Foodlink (nonperishable food items are requested as concert donations); the initiative extends to Boston and Tampa, and is spreading to New Haven. In Boston, Grammy Awardwinning violinist Kim Kashkashian organizes “Music for Food” concerts, most recently benefiting Food For Free. In Tampa, cellist Scott Kluksdahl serves as the artistic director for its version of “If Music Be the Food…” in collaboration with the University of South Florida School of Music, the Carrollwood Cultural Center, and Tampa Bay Harvest. (Kluksdahl will perform in Rochester in the concert on January 26.) Rodland says that the model is now also extending into New Haven, Connecticut.

million pounds of food annually through a network of 450 member agencies in a 10-county service area, including Monroe, Wayne, and Ontario counties. Now in its fifth year, “If Music Be the Food” will present concerts October 13, January 26, and May 9, including performances by the Ying Quartet and special guest artist Robyn Schulkowsky, percussion (Berlin, Germany).
Carol Rodland’s biography as a classical musician is sufficiently impressive to be its own article. She earned bachelor of music and masters of music degrees from The Juilliard School. She won a Fulbright Scholarship. She has traveled to study, teach, and perform in Europe. She is an associate professor of viola at the Eastman School of Music and acted as co-host of 2012’s 40th International Viola Congress. And, she plays on a viola created by Vincenzo Panormo dating back to 1791. But what sets Rodland apart from other classical musicians is her chamber-music series “If Music Be the Food…,” which brings together professional and student musicians to raise funds and food for Foodlink, a regional food bank based in Rochester. Last season, “If Music Be the Food…” collected 2,000 pounds of food and raised close to $3,000 for Foodlink. Foodlink, in turn, distributes more than 16
“It’s scandalous to watch society overeat while our neighbors down the street don’t have enough to eat,” says Rodland. “More than 50 percent of children in Rochester live in poverty. We need to reallocate our resources.” According to Monroe County’s “Children’s Agenda” website, the city of Rochester has the seventh-highest rate of child poverty in the nation with more than half of the children living in poverty. Rodland grew up in Ridgewood, New Jersey, in a family of organists. Her parents were from Pennsylvania, which Rodland says meant, “Our work was never done and it was never good enough.” Although her parents didn’t have money, there was always support in the community, doors were always open, and Rodland grew up with gratitude. As Rodland pursued her education and career, moving through New York City, Germany, and Boston, she was always seeking

out the community food banks to which she could make donations. When Rodland moved to Rochester in 2008 to teach at Eastman, she saw a medium-sized city, where it would be relatively easy to get her two passions — chamber music and feeding the hungry — to connect and get off the ground. Rodland ended up designing an educationservice model that also connected her students. “One person can’t solve this problem,” says Rodland. “We can do better as a group.” This year’s three-concert “If Music Be the
Food…” series begins on Sunday, October 13. The program includes works of Mozart, Beethoven, Verdi, and Joseph Bodin de Boismortier. Performing will be Rodland in a string quartet with violinists Renée Jolles and Markiyan Melnychenko and violist Wendy Richmann, and Mimi Hwang, cello, the Eastman Oboes, the Eastman Women’s Chorus, along with a number of vocal soloists. Rodland, who says that the issue of unmet need to feed the hungry “brings out [her] mother-bear instincts,” points out that there are “huge societal implications associated with hunger.” “Children can’t think if they are hungry. They can’t function at their best. They can’t begin to reach their potential,” says Rodland.
Molly Goldman entered Eastman to double major in viola and in education the year that “If Music Be the Food…” was launched. At first, she didn’t know much about the series except that it was a concert with faculty members to which she took canned goods. Seeing so many people come together for a concert, many bringing canned goods, was a “win-win” that hooked her right away. “Poverty and hunger are problems. To be able to help in any way is good for everyone,” says Goldman. “Sometimes, people are so focused in their own little world, and so this becomes a great outlet to be connected.” Goldman has done everything for the series, from donations to ushering to performing, and she will lead the charge for this season’s final concert, which includes The Ying Quartet. As more and more people find out about the concert series and attend, the donation bins overflow. “There’s a reason music is one of the healing arts,” says Rodland. “Not only for those who receive, but also for those who give.”

ELECTRO-POP | YIP DECEIVER
Yip Deceiver is a side project for two members of the critically-acclaimed indie-pop band Of Montreal, but its sound does not hint at that fact. The duo’s music is much more based in dance and R&B influences, and is much more likely to be found in clubs than its previous work. Yip recently released is debut album, “Medallius,” where it presented a sound that is heavily influenced by 80s R&B artists such as Luther Vandross, Chaka Khan, and Anita Baker, combined with dance beats to create a “retro-futuristic feel”.

and gorgeously shot cat-and-mouse game between the two men, our outsider perspective nicely embodied by Henri (Patrick d’Assumçao), a lonely husband who says little but sees a lot. (Wednesday, October 16, 9 p.m., Little Theatre) Arvin Chen’s candy-colored Taiwanese ensemble comedy “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?” is an adorable lark, its plot set into motion when Feng (Mavis Fan) announces to her sad-eyed husband Weichung (Richie Jen) that she’d like to have a second child. A devoted father to their son, Weichung avoids answering, and it isn’t until he visibly perks up upon meeting a dreamy flight attendant (Wong Ka Lok) that we guess what the hitch might be. (Also, this is ImageOut, so we can’t help but assume these things.) There’s actually quite a bit cooking here: Weichung’s little sister Mandy has gotten cold feet about her impending nuptials, Feng’s handsome boss is extra attentive to her, and Mandy’s wedding planner seems to know more than a little about Weichung’s past. As Feng, Fan is the standout, gracefully conveying her justifiable turmoil. Nothing earthshattering happens here, but it’s all handled with sweetness, respect, and no agenda other than love. (Thursday, October 17, 6:30 p.m., Little Theatre) When a character announces that “Everything is OK” and the movie isn’t even half over, you can’t help but brace yourself and wait. That’s the case with “Honeymoon,” a taut but belabored drama from prolific Czech director Jan Hrebejk that observes as an uninvited guest bearing a bizarre gift crashes the wedding of Radim (Stanislav Majer) and Tereza (Anna Geislerová), parceling out his motives with all the velocity of a glacier. “So get the cops to throw his ass out,” you might think. Yes, but it soon becomes 20 CITY OCTOBER 9-15, 2013

clear that Radim is hiding something, so the guest has the upper hand, at least for a little while. “Honeymoon” is less successful as a study of the long-term repercussions of cruel homophobia than it is an inquiry into the rules of marriage and whether those vows can be trumped by nondisclosure. (Saturday, October 19, 4:15 p.m., Dryden Theatre) It’d be easy to dismiss “G.B.F.” as another overly broad comedy with a simplistic message of acceptance, because, well, it totally is. But “G.B.F.” has such a huge heart, and takes such delight in skewering all those lazy high-school-movie stereotypes, that its trespasses fall away fast. “G.B.F” introduces us to comicbook nerd Tanner (Michael J. Willett), whose involuntary outing kickstarts a tug-of-war among his school’s gayless gay-straight alliance and the three popular girls. Fawcett, Caprice, and ‘Shley are each looking for a leg up in the race for prom queen, and they just read that a gay best friend is this season’s hottest accessory. Director Darren Stein manages to keep a bunch of flaming bowling pins in the air and gives us much to adore here, from George Northy’s whipsmart script to the ridiculous costume design to the unexpected depth of the characters. Add to that a game supporting cast of recognizable faces like Rebecca Gayheart and Jonathan Silverman as Tanner’s understanding parents (their son’s desperate suggestion that he might be bisexual sends them into peals of laughter) plus Horatio Sanz, Natasha Lyonne, and the invaluable Megan Mullally, with whom I think we would all like to sit down and watch “Brokeback Mountain.” (Saturday, October 19, 7:30 p.m., Dryden Theatre)

You may not know composers Andrea Gabrieli, Giovanni Gabrieli, Claudio Monteverdi, Heinrich Schütz, Adrian Willaert, and Barbara Strozzi. But you will understand the title of the upcoming concert featuring their work: “Serenissima – The Glory of Venice.” Conducted by William Weinert, Voices is a professional vocal ensemble. The program will include music for voice, brass, strings, and organ from “The Golden Age of Art and Music.” It was a time from the early 16th century to the late 18th century, when the Venetian Republic was referred to as “La Serenissima,” meaning ‘the most serene.’ Voices performs Friday, October 11, 8 p.m. at Asbury First United Methodist Church, 1040 East Ave., Free, 2741100, erchoirs.org. — BY PALOMA A.

Raiders of a lost art “signals_now_” THROUGH NOVEMBER 10 ROCHESTER CONTEMPORARY ART CENTER, 137 EAST AVE. 461-2222, ROCHESTERCONTEMPORARY.ORG WEDNESDAY-SUNDAY 1-5 P.M., FRIDAY 1-10 P.M.| $1, FREE TO MEMBERS [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
Rochester Contemporary’s current show, “signals_now_,” was created in collaboration with Signal Culture, a new experimental media studio soon to be located in Owego, New York, run by artists Debora and Jason Bernagozzi. The exhibit showcases four artists who will be among the first to participate in Signal Culture’s residency program, and who each question the place of media in our lives, and the ways we engage with it. Signal Culture aims to encourage the creation of new work and the building of community in the field of experimental media art, and intends to offer real-time analog and digital image processing equipment and resources, both vintage and contemporary. This spot will cater to a contingent of people in the video-art world who use mediaediting tools as artist’s tools, and who seek greater control over media editing, says Rochester Contemporary Executive Director Bleu Cease. 22 CITY OCTOBER 9-15, 2013
Within this niche group are artists such as Peer Bode, of Hornell, New York, a professor of video arts at the School of Art and Design at Alfred University who creates works that focus on the physical manipulation of media. Bode is represented in this show by heavily manipulated video art and prints of video stills. Bode is committed to more engagement, more self-consciousness about the tools he is using, says Cease. The artist makes video works that are “about the nature of making video, and pushing the medium to where it breaks down and has different figments and failures,” Cease says. “CURE: Papa’s Kino” is an intimate video work run through a screen buffer, played on two channels, which features the artist’s face passing through countless effects, disintegrating into particles, becoming a beacon of light. The three screens in “Going Private Public” feature analog video of a woman’s bust, shifting to negative, breaking up into in diagonal stripes, slipping rapidly across the screen, or just broken into static patterning, and resembling the frustrating effects from worn-out video tapes. Bode made prints of stills from these videos, creating fine art of the “beautiful white noise” stored in early digital memory. “These recordings and markings point to larger image banks and digital ruins,” says the artist in a provided statement.
philosophically chewy 2007 work, “Refresh,” documents her efforts to legally changed her name from Kristin Sue Lucas to Kristin Sue Lucas (you read that correctly: same name to the letter) in order to explore the concept of refreshing yourself, as you would a webpage. “Refresh” is really a performance piece, manifesting in this exhibit with transcripts and audio recordings in lieu of video, since the petition took place in a courtroom. The audio contains moments where the baffled but kindly judge struggles to understand what this artist means to accomplish by “changing” her name to her current name, and whether it’s something he has the legal authority to approve. Undaunted, Lucas respectfully explains that she doesn’t wish to waste the court’s time, and the two engage in a debate on the nature of change. When we refresh a website, we display and gain access to the page’s most current version, allowing ourselves to engage with any changes that may have subtly taken place. The artist claims that replacing self with the self is an affirmation of self, a reestablishment of the self, which is a rather fascinating act to symbolize a greater focus on identity. Joe McKay of Beacon, New York, created the interactive “Tweetagraph 2,” which asks gallery visitors to send Twitter messages to “Tweetagraph 1,” which is located at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art, and also supplying live messages. The station includes not a keyboard and mouse, but an actual telegraph mechanism; a key with corresponding letters and symbols; an arduino, which interprets the signal from the telegraph; a computer; and a small wall-mounted screen that shows the feed. Mistakes abound on the screen because there is no backspace or delete, no auto-correct, and before very long, the message auto-sends. The experience is ultimately humbling — the work subtly points out that the increased convenience of new technology comes at the price of our lost willingness to learn precision and skill and forethought, which were demanded by communication technologies prior to auto-correct and our capacity to edit how we are represented in the ether. “Fragmented Memory” is a series of digitally designed and woven textiles by
Brooklyn-based artist Phillip Stearns. “A snapshot of my computer’s physical memory was extracted in a core dump, producing a binary image of my activity in the world as mediated by my computer,” says the artist in a provided statement. Sections of the data were converted to images using software, and the resulting patterns were woven on a computerized industrial Jacquard loom. Fields of colorful dots, zigzags, and black bars make up the beautiful, contemporary, new-language version of ancient tapestries, which conveyed stories through woven images and words. Because of the pleasing regularity of specific areas and patterns in the textiles, the question of whether or not the code was aestheticized arose among some of the more code-savvy visitors, says Cease. The round room at the rear of the space
holds Stearns’ “Heliocentrism,” a sound and projection installation that is both soothing and distracting in its everpresence. The 20-minute experience begins as it ends — quiet, clear, clean light is projected on the wall in silence, which steadily evolves into a heavy buzzing sound from the speakers on the floor, accompanied visually by a deepening blue arc along the bottom of the projection, and a vague hot pink disc shimmering in a milky, pale sky. The buzzing installation speaks of powerful, radiated energy, the volume of information being transmitted, here in a disorienting cacophony of noise and glaring light filtered through a fog. Stearns says the work comments on “techno-media-centrism in a veiled sense, and how worlds are revealed to us not directly through media, but through our perceptions as shaped by media.” The provided statement is accompanied by the phrase, “Everything revolves around everything,” alluding to our struggle to interpret the world through signals, reality echoing through our own — and the media’s — filters.

KIDS | ROCHESTER ROBOTICS/RO CHA CHA RUCKUS
Robots are going to take over the world and overthrow humans one day, so why not gather some intel on the enemy before it’s too late? Attend the Rochester Museum and Science Center’s Rochester Robotics Weekend. The event is meant to provide a glimpse into the current robotics industry while also showcasing some of the modern applications of robots. But it’s not all educational, as visitors will also have several hands-on opportunities, including the ability to take control of a fully functional LEGO robot. The event runs Saturday through Monday, October 12-14, and with specific activities noon-4 p.m. Rochester Robotics activities are included in the price of museum admission, $11-$16. The museum is located at 657 East Ave. For more information visit rmsc.org. Also be sure to check out this year’s Rah Cha Cha Rukus event, a three-on-three robot competition that, this year, will feature robots competing in a game of Ultimate Frisbee. If you’re curious as to how a robot even goes about throwing a disc, then come down to the Main Street Armory (900 E. Main St.) and check out this competition on Saturday, October 12, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. For more information visit ruckus. penfieldrobotics.com. — BY COLIN MCCOY

SPECIAL EVENT | UR MELIORA WEEKEND/RIT BRICK CITY HOMECOMING
Two of the biggest colleges in Rochester are having their homecomings this weekend — October 10-13 — and they have lined up quite the collection of events. The University of Rochester’s Meliora Weekend will be headlined by keynote speaker Robert Gates, former Secretary of Defense (Saturday, October 12), and comedian and former “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” writer Demetri Martin (Friday, October 11). As for RIT’s Brick City Homecoming, there is just as much star power. Besides the school’s men’s hockey team taking on Michigan, Mark Kelly and Gabrielle Giffords will be speaking (October 12), and comedians Colin Mochrie & Brad Sherwood (pictured; of “Whose Line is it Anyway?” fame) will be performing (Thursday, October 10). Those events are just scratching the surface, as there are plenty more to check out.

26 CITY OCTOBER 9-15, 2013
Rochester sees quite a bit of Shakespeare in the course of a theater season, but almost nothing from his runner-up in the Greatest English Playwright sweepstakes (and match in productivity), George Bernard Shaw. Last year Rochester’s Black Sheep Theatre presented Shaw’s early play “Widowers’ Houses”; this month it is presenting “Mrs. Warren’s Profession” — another early play and the earliest of Shaw’s that is still performed regularly. If this is a sign of things to come, I welcome it. There’s no reason you should have to travel to Canada or New York City to see a Shaw play. Shaw termed both of these plays “unpleasant” because the subjects they deal with were, and still are, unpleasant. “Widowers’ Houses” attacks slum landlords; as for Mrs. Warren (played by Diane Mashia), her profession is the oldest one. Well, the second-oldest: she has raised herself up from prostitution to be a wealthy madam of numerous European brothels. Her daughter Vivie (Laura Reed), who has just graduated from college with a mathematics degree, knows nothing about her mother’s profession,
and until halfway through the play, next to nothing about her mother. The other characters include three old friends of Mrs. Warren: Sir George Crofts (Kevin Swift), Rev. Samuel Gardiner (Richard Mancini), and a Mr. Praed (Brian Pienkoski). Crofts is Mrs. Warren’s business partner and has his eye on Vivie; Gardiner is a former rake who has become a country curate; Praed is a vaguely artistic, vaguely sympathetic creature. Gardiner’s son Frank (Ray Baird) has a crush on Vivie, which abruptly ends after (as they said in Victorian melodrama) a Shocking Revelation. According to Shaw, every one of them is a prostitute, living off a corrupt society. When faced with the truth that her mother has not retired from “the business” but is still thriving, Vivie’s reaction is to renounce Frank, her family, and most human contact and withdraw completely into her work, making calculations for actuarial tables (which certainly sounds like an additional circle of hell to me). This is as close as Shaw ever got to a tragic ending, and his lack of a reasonable solution to the problem may account for the scorn with which he held this play later in life. “Mrs. Warren’s Profession” was considered so distasteful that it wasn’t produced at all until 1902, eight years after it was written — and not professionally, but at a private club in London. It was not professionally produced until 1925 — “too late,” said Shaw with unusual concision. Shaw also
described his play, despite the sensational subject matter, as “quite prudish.” Indeed, the name of Mrs. Warren’s profession is never actually uttered. Black Sheep’s production, using a text trimmed judiciously by director Jim Landers, puts this still-lively play through its paces quite well. It would be silly to expect anything on the level of the virtuoso acting and lavish sets you’d see at the Shaw Festival, but this play is definitely strong enough to take a simpler, more direct treatment. Seeing it in such close quarters as the Black Sheep’s tiny theater adds a frisson to many of the scenes. (That 1902 production may have been in a very similar space.) The opening-weekend performance I saw was tentative in spots — some fluffed lines (quickly recovered) and a couple of off lighting cues — but it was mostly well spoken and well presented. Shaw described the character of Mrs. Warren as “a deplorable old rip.” Most actresses would simply call it a great role. Coral Browne, in an old BBC production of the play, seemed to me to fill the bill ideally: flashily dressed, easygoing, and basically common. Diane Mashia plays Mrs. Warren as restrained, reasonable, and rather classy. This approach takes some of the heat out of her encounters with her daughter. On the other hand, it does make Mrs. Warren seem like a canny businesswoman, and the determined young Vivie seem like a chip off the old block. Laura Reed definitely plays up Vivie’s hard, sensible qualities. When she melts momentarily in scenes with her mother and with Frank, it is quite striking. I’ve seen Frank Gardiner, Vivie’s erstwhile suitor, played as a deplorable young rip; Ray Baird makes him energetic and rather puppyish, which works just as well — he seems just as destroyed by the revelations in the play as Vivie. Kevin Swift comes into his own in the third act, showing Crofts true (nasty) colors in his confrontation with Vivie. Richard Mancini is a nicely befuddled Reverend Gardiner, in the long British tradition of befuddled ministers. And playing someone ineffectual is hard work, but Brian Pienkoski does well as Mr. Praed, and shows some genuine, touching concern for Vivie at the end of the play in a nicely subtle way. Shaw went on to write plays more accomplished than “Mrs. Warren’s Profession,” but this one remains as thought-provoking as ever. I would not miss the opportunity to see it, or to encourage Black Sheep Theatre to give more Shaw a try.

FILM | “THE ISSA VALLEY”
All terrible submarine jokes aside, Poland has a lot to offer. One of those is film. The University of Rochester’s Skalny Center for Polish and Central European Studies sponsors the Polish Film Festival. While it doesn’t start until November 6, you can catch a sneak peek Sunday, October 13, at The Little Theatre. Tadeusz Konwicki’s 1981 film “The Issa Valley” will be shown at 4 p.m. The film evokes a childhood in rural Lithuania between the wars. A country boy, Tomaszek, lives on a rich estate, situated on the Polish border. He realizes that the Issa Valley he lives in is to be torn apart by internal political conflicts and unrests among the mixed population of Poles, Lithuanians, Jews, and Russians. He, however, is captivated by a paradise surrounding him, the forest, and his fantasies. Think of it as a Polish version of “Pan’s Labyrinth.” Tickets cost $7-$9. For more information visit Rochester. edu and search for the Skalny Center, or call 275-9898. — BY TREVOR LEWIS

THEATER | “GHOST THE MUSICAL”
If, like millions of other people, you’ve fantasized about Patrick Swayze helping you make a clay pot, chances are you’ve seen the 1990 film “Ghost.” Whether you’ve seen the movie or not, Rochester is in for a treat, as Rochester Broadway Theatre League brings “Ghost the Musical” to the Auditorium Theatre (885 E. Main St.), running through Sunday, October 13. The story is about a murdered man who becomes a ghost, and with the help of a psychic he seeks to avenge his death and tie up loose ends with his fiancée. Make sure to bring some tissues with you, as this one is on the emotional side, to say the least. Tickets range from $32.50 to $67.50.

RECREATION | ZOMBIE 5K RUN & WALK
If you’re getting tired of the same old 5K runs, there’s a simple solution to spice things up: adding zombies to the mix. Hamlin Beach State Park (1 Camp Road) will be holding the Zombie 5K Run & Walk this Saturday, October 12. Runners in the race will go about the usual business, but with the added twist of zombie runners trying to get them. Runners receive three Velcro life tags to begin the race, and the zombie runners will attempt to steal them throughout the race. Runners must maintain at least one of their life tags to be eligible for post-race prizes, and zombies must get as many life tags as they can to attempt to win prizes as well. Proceeds from the event go to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Race begins at 9 a.m. sharp, with registration running 7-8:45 a.m. Participation costs $18-$25.

THEATER | “THE LAST FIVE YEARS”
The critically acclaimed Off-Broadway musical “The Last Five Years” is coming to Rochester’s JCC Centerstage this month. The show presents the love story of a young couple, Jamie and Cathy, told in a unique non-linear way from the perspective of each character. While Jamie gives his recollection of the relationship from beginning to end, Cathy gives hers in the reverse order, which results in a play that conflates concepts of past, present, and future in its examination of love. The show features award-winning music by Jason Robert Brown (composer of “Parade”) as well as performances by local musical-theater talents Janine Mercandetti and Carl Del Buono. “The Last Five Years” opens runs through Sunday, October 20, at the JCC (1200 Edgewood Ave). Shows are every Thursday at 7 p.m., Saturday at 8 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $18-$26.

Lost in space “Gravity”
(PG-13), DIRECTED BY ALFONSO CUARON NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
The digital revolution, with all its computergenerated images, optical wizardry, and wondrous special effects, now drives far too many filmmakers to produce the bloated blockbusters that rattle the cineplexes summer after summer. Far too often, mechanism substitutes for the traditional content of plot, character, and meaning. Now and then, however, the remarkable advances in cinema
technology achieve a certain harmony with the stories they so often tell so badly, so that the movies actually deserve their magic. In “Gravity” that technology once again dominates the action, but this time works in the service of plot and character; it also even provides the subject of the picture. It begins with that now-familiar image of the wonders of our time, astronauts moving around in space, working on some adjustments to the exterior of their capsule, conversing with each other and Mission Control back in Houston while rotating and floating around the craft. (The picture really should be called “Zero Gravity.”) The two major characters — really the only characters — the mission commander, Matt Kowalski (George Clooney), and a medical officer, Dr. Ryan Stone (Sandra Bullock) — present two very different personalities. A wisecracking space jockey, Kowalski wants to break the record for walks outside the craft; a rookie, Stone feels nervous and queasy. A voice from Mission

Control informs them that in the process of destroying an obsolete satellite, the Russians have accidentally set off a chain reaction, sending hundreds of pieces of debris hurtling at great speed toward the Americans and any other spacecraft in the path. That simple situation initiates the plot, basically a survival story in which Stone must somehow control her wildly gyrating body, dodge all the junk flying at her, return to the craft, and find a way to reach the international space station. Kowalski calms her down, instructs her in how to conserve the oxygen in her suit, and talks her back to the capsule, where she finds the whole crew dead from a collision with the debris. From that point on the movie settles into a string of catastrophes from which Stone must find a method of escape. Throughout the whole process, the film, in 3D, constantly shows a multitude of objects, all manner of space debris, flying out of the screen toward the audience from all directions. The camera frequently shifts to Ryan Stone’s point of view from within the claustrophobic confines of her helmet, enhancing the terrific tension and increasing the sense of danger. Stone herself bounces off the insides of several vessels, floating like a loose balloon, out of control like a thrown rubber ball. In addition to those remarkable effects, the whole picture takes place in a zero-gravity

environment, so that the astronaut only occasionally finds stability when she manages to strap herself into a seat. The sustained illusion of an hour and a half of zero gravity constitutes one of the most brilliant achievements of contemporary technology and cinematography. “Gravity” displays what may be the best and most logical use of 3D filmmaking. Although she occupies the screen as its sole character throughout what essentially amounts to a one-person movie, the script provides Sandra Bullock with few opportunities to exhibit anything like variety or nuance; she is mostly a victim of circumstance who must cope with one unimaginable danger after another. Her character grows into competence through her resourcefulness, but those qualities emerge from her seemingly impossible situation, from all the stuff the director throws at her or puts her through. The other big name, George Clooney, on the other hand, receives very few opportunities and very little screen time, and simply exercises his familiar charm. The real star of the movie is its quite amazing technology, which oddly for the cinema of our time, not only works, but actually makes sense. The flying objects, the revolving figures, the stunning visions of Earth, the sense of the endless emptiness of space combine to make “Gravity” a very special achievement.
I should probably preface this review by saying that I don’t consider myself a Metallica fan. I have nothing against the 32-year-old metal band, mind you. I’ve just never actively followed the group. So take it as a ringing endorsement that, despite my relative indifference, I thoroughly enjoyed the band’s nutty but imaginative new concert film, “Metallica: Through the Never.” Directed by Nimród Antal (“Predators”), the film mashes together the standard concert film format with a fictional plot involving Trip (Dane DeHaan, “Chronicle” and “The Place Beyond the Pines”), a roadie for the band who is tasked with locating a broken-down tour truck that contains something the band needs for its performance, but who along the way finds himself caught in the middle of an apocalyptic battle between anarchist rebels and an army of riot police.
Oh, and the whole thing is filmed in 3D. Antal cross-cuts between this actionoriented storyline and Metallica’s actual concert, a massive arena stage spectacle featuring Tesla coils, flames, screen projections, and lasers. Amidst all the flashy effects, the band performs its way through its discography, from early hits “For Whom the Bell Tolls” and “Ride the Lightning,” through some of its more recent output. The director’s cameras swoop across the arena, capturing every bit of the epic performance in immersive detail, from lead singer James Hetfield’s charismatic growling to the fist-pumping crowd singing along. It’s a testament to the band that its members at least appear to still be enjoying themselves as they play these songs, some of which they’ve been performing for decades. All four members of Metallica share writing credit with Antal for the “plot,” but the storyline is mostly an excuse to stage elaborate action scenes as a glorified music video, meant to provide cool-looking visuals to accompany the band’s music. DeHaan performs well, I suppose, but it’s difficult to judge his performance, as he never utters a single word. It wasn’t until the credits rolled that I even realized his character had a name. But “Through the Never” is visually stunning start to finish, and gorgeously shot by cinematographer Gyula Pados. The editing of the film is extraordinary, and surely must have been a monumental task for the film’s sole credited editor, Joe Hutshing. I respected Antal’s attempt to do something different than the typical concert film, and he succeeds in capturing the raucous energy of a great rock concert, but in the end it’s not quite enough to recommend the film to anyone other than die-hard Metallica fans. There’s a moment in “Enough Said,” the

warm-hearted romantic comedy from talented writer-director Nicole Holofcener, when the knowledge that you’re watching
one of the late James Gandolfini’s last performances becomes a bit overwhelming. Exactly when that moment comes will undoubtedly vary for you, but for me it occurred as his character goes on his first date with Eva, played by Julia LouisDreyfus. Once the initial awkwardness is over, they both realize that they’re having a good time, and settle into a comfortable rhythm with one another. It’s a sweet moment, and the added realization that audiences have lost such an extraordinarily gifted performer adds an extra hint of sadness to an already bittersweet film. Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays divorced single mother Eva, a successful massage therapist whose daughter is moving away to college in a few months. Faced with the prospect of an empty house, she’s more open than ever to meeting new people to fill the void her daughter will inevitably leave in her life. Attending a cocktail party, she meets the witty, charming, and seemingly puttogether Marianne (frequent Holofcener star Catherine Keener), whom Eva agrees to take on as a client. At the same party, Eva meets Albert (Gandolfini), a man she might normally not have looked at twice, but the prickly rapport of their first meeting ends with her agreeing to a date. As a friendship blossoms between Eva and Marianne, Eva gradually realizes that the ex-husband her friend constantly bitches about during their sessions is the same Albert Eva is now seeing regularly. Gandolfini and Dreyfus make for an unexpected pairing, and they have an excellent chemistry. He gives a gentle teddy bear of a performance, a revelation for those who have only known him as Tony Soprano. She downplays her slightly daffy energy and makes Eva entirely sympathetic, even as she makes some terrible decisions. The film works because we root for their relationship to succeed, and Holofcener’s intelligent, funny script underplays every moment, going for truth instead of easy, sitcom-y laughs.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD American Exceptionalism: Which is more characteristically American -- that a Texas company could invent an ordinary rifle that mimics a machine gun or that America’s incomparable legal minds could find a loophole in existing anti-machine-gun laws to permit it to be manufactured and sold? The Slide Fire company’s weapon can spray bullets “like a fire hose” from a legal, semiautomatic gun by simple application of muscle, yet an official opinion of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives acknowledges that the agency is powerless to regulate it because of the wording in 1934 and 1986 legislation that otherwise restricts private ownership of machine guns. One gun shop owner told London’s Daily Mail in September that the Slide Fire rifle is “not as easy” to use as a machine gun, but still, “(I)t’s fairly idiot-proof.”
Fine Points of the Law
(1) In July, a New York City judge tossed out Joseph Lozito’s lawsuit against the police -- even though two officers had stood by in February 2011, out of harm’s way, while a man attacked Lozito as part of a four-murder crime spree. The judge ruled that it was not clear enough that Lozito was in danger when the officers began to ignore him (while they were inside a subway motorman’s booth). (2) In September, a federal jury in New York City upheld an employment agency worker’s claim that she (an African-American) was racially harassed by her boss. The supervisor, Rob Carmona, had insisted that he could not be liable for racebased harassment because, he, too, is African-American and thus entitled to use the “n-word.”
— According to his road manager, pioneer 1970s musician Sly Stone (of Sly and the Family Stone) has a lot of “real interesting ideas,” including once trying to hire “ninja chicks and clowns” for his security entourage. Stone’s latest brainstorm, reported London’s The Guardian in August: form a musical group of albinos, which Stone says “could neutralize all the racial problems” that plague society. “To me,” he said, “albinos are the most legitimate minority group of all.” — In the concluding race in September of the Rally de Misiones in Campo Viera, Argentina, it was important for drivers to complete the laps even if they had no chance of winning, but near the end, driver Sebastian Llamosas experienced a throttle malfunction and began coasting, still about a half-mile from the finish line. However, in a move reminiscent of actor Slim Pickens jumping on the atomic bomb in “Dr. Strangelove,” Llamosas’s quick-thinking partner Mauricio Sainz jumped onto the open engine and accelerated the car by hand while Llamosas steered the final distance.
Perverts on Parade
A 35-year-old man was charged with sexual assault in Solvesborg, Sweden, in July, for allegedly following a 50-year-old woman home, apparently intending to flash her. After she made it safely inside before he could expose himself, she noticed some noise at the front door and found that the man had stuck his penis through the door’s mail slot.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 34 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Emotions are high and so is romance. Send out the vibe, and you will get the action you are looking for. It’s all about body language and being truthful about who you are and what you are looking for in a relationship. Love is heading in your direction. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Look for someone who gets you mentally, and it will develop into a warm, lasting and loving relationship. The rush of love can be magnetic, but often lacks staying power. Build a close bond first, and see what happens. In the end you will find true love and happiness.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Someone will grab your attention, but deception is present. Whether it’s you not divulging the truth regarding your current situation or the person who interests you, it will be vital to fess up and be truthful on both sides if you expect this connection to have a chance. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Socializing and having fun will attract interest and attention. Take part in activities that focus on entertainment or doing something creative or different than your usual outings. Don’t look for love at work, or you will face problems that can be distracting and damaging.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ll dazzle potential partners with your charisma. Having a good time will make everyone want to be with you. Express your emotions openly and make suggestions and innuendoes that are enticing, and you will find someone who can match your vibrant personality every step of the way. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll find it easier to make friends than to find lovers this week. The people you meet will show more interest in what you can do than in who you are. Someone is not likely to admit to the motives behind the gestures of friendliness you
receive. Proceed with caution. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll attract attention and romantic lovers, but your indecisiveness will make it difficult for you to take advantage of the situation. Your cold-and-hot response will be hard to control and tend to hold the interest of players rather than someone offering long-term love. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t let love cost you. If someone is looking for a free ticket to being taken care of, take a pass. Deception regarding what someone has to offer you looks doubtful and will lead to disappointment. Take your time and do your research.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ve got all the right moves and the words to capture someone’s attention. Your desire to offer promises galore and plenty of bravado will backfire, and problems will surface if you don’t produce the goods. If you paint a pleasant picture, make sure you can prove it exits. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You are likely to attract someone looking for a free ride. Be careful not to divulge too much about your personal life or your assets. Take a slow approach to love if you are looking for a long-lasting relationship. Strive for equality, not someone dependent.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Keep moving and head toward the action, and you will find someone vying for the same excitement as you. Experiment with people looking for something new as well as a lifestyle that is conducive to individual growth, equality and the ability to work as a team player with a free spirit. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t trust anyone who is trying too hard to get your attention. A show-off or someone pursuing you relentlessly will eventually let you down. Put greater emphasis on what any partner who interests you can bring to the table to ensure a long, stable relationship.
