THE BOOKER TRACK Tax and Legislative Matters Instructors: Dean Pope, Esq., and William Gray, Esq., Hunton & Williams Last year’s newspaper and television stories reminded leaders that lack of financial savvy does not absolve board and business leaders from personal liability. Just because you are part of a small organization doesn’t mean you are immune to large issues. Do you report unrelated business income? What are the risk factors when your association takes on debt? Do you have adequate liability insurance? What legislative issues might influence your mission? In what cases should you be charging sales tax? If you don’t have an attorney on retainer or you can’t afford a consultant at this time, take advantage of this course to introduce yourself to invaluable topics. Two classes.

Case Study Instructors: Lewis T. Booker, Esq., Hunton & Williams Charles Bryan, Virginia Baptist Historical Society Can you imagine waking up one morning to four news vans parked outside your house? How would you react when you open the door to retrieve the morning paper and reporters rush to greet you with microphones and cameras? In this class, you will be challenged with scenarios to prepare you for the “What Ifs” that you might encounter in your term as a CEO or board member. The case studies are designed to prepare, stimulate and challenge you to handle whatever comes your way! This will be an intensive program, but you will return to your workplace with the knowledge that you are ready for anything! Class size is limited to 20.

Case Study

Instructor: Michael Dowdy, MCV Foundation For the philanthropically-inclined individual, opportunities abound for transferring assets to loved ones, while at the same time supporting institutions that have made a difference in one’s life. It is mid-April and everyone is talking about taxes, so this is the ideal time to discuss the federal and state income tax regulations. Most of us need to hire experts to figure out our personal income tax forms, but we are expected to become fluent in the tax language, with a special emphasis on capital gains taxes, alternative minimum taxes, as well as estate and gift taxes. Can you carry on an intelligent conversation about retirement, estate and investment planning? If not, here’s the place to start. This course will position you to think through gift plans that will help donors meet multiple needs, while gaining important support for your organization. Two classes.

Instructor: Michael Dowdy, MCV Foundation This case study program will give you an opportunity to apply what you have learned.

Fourteenth Annual

Spring 2003

University of Richmond International Film Series

This series is free and open to the public. All Thursday and Sunday showings are at 7:30 p.m. in Jepson Hall 118. All Friday showings are at 3:00 p.m. in the Adams Auditorium of the Boatwright Memorial Library. The films are shown in the original language with English subtitles.

second episode, a young married woman competes in a bicycle race but is hunted down by her husband and in-laws. The third story begins with an old woman, no longer married, embarking on a shopping spree but ends with the sobering realization of her second-class status. The film is both subtle and frank in making its point about female disenfranchisement. By packing even the smallest scenes with sharp detail, director Meshkini infuses her work with dynamic insight into Iranian society. “Meshkini uses an almost surreal palette of startling imagery and circumstances to create a powerfully moving triptych about being female in Iran” (Stephen Garrett, Time Out New York). Not rated by MPAA. How I Killed My Father

How I Killed My Father March 13, 14 & 16 France, 2001 Directed by Anne Fontaine

100 minutes Language: French

This well-crafted psychological drama from writer/director Anne Fontaine brings a fresh, feminine perspective to the intricate dynamics of the fatherson relationship. The son is Jean-Luc (Charles Berling), an affluent doctor with a lucrative gerontology practice. His father is Maurice (Michel Bouquet) who, after having abandoned his family many years earlier, returns home, unannounced and penniless. Warily taken into the household, Maurice gradually creeps into the everyday life of his son. Is Maurice a tired old man seeking reconciliation or is he a cold-blooded abuser intent on inflicting more emotional harm? Tension mounts as Jean-Luc’s wife Isa (Natacha Regier) becomes attracted to Maurice. Plot twists and abundant drama complement the superb performance of Bouquet who was named Best Actor by the 2001 French Academy of Cinema. Film critic Andrew O’Hehir calls this “an icy voyage into Sigmund Freud’s darker fantasies, a disturbing and pitch-perfect intellectual thriller.” Not rated by MPAA.

The Day I Became a Woman March 20, 21 & 23 Iran, 2000 Directed by Marzieh Meshkini

78 minutes Language: Farsi

This compelling drama describes the plight of women in present-day Iran. Three vignettes take us through the three ages of woman, each revealing some aspect of social injustice. The first episode focuses on a young girl who reaches age nine, when, in Islamic eyes, she becomes a woman; and we see how she manages to steal one last hour of childhood freedom.

The Day I Became a Woman

Limbo United States, 1999 Directed by John Sayles

March 27, 28 & 30 127 minutes Language: English

Set in the small Alaskan town of Port Henry, Limbo tells the story of three characters, each deeply troubled for different reasons and trapped in a kind of emotional paralysis. Joe Gastineau (David Strathairn), a lonely, introverted man, takes up with Donna (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio), a lounge singer who is down on her luck. Donna comes encumbered with a daughter Noelle (Vanessa Martinez), a brooding teenager who entertains thoughts of suicide and self-mutilation. A bizarre turn of events takes the threesome away from Port Henry and causes them to become stranded on a deserted island where they face a desperate struggle to stay alive. But Sayles presents no ordinary survival drama here; instead, he examines how the survival instinct battles with feelings of loneliness and despair. Shot on location by cinematographer Haskell Wexler, the film vividly depicts Alaska’s cruelty as well as its beauty and grandeur. Perhaps the most controversial aspect of Limbo is the ending; although unconventional, it remains faithful to the tone and artistic intent of the rest of the story. Rated R by MPAA.
