Director: Cecilia Aldarondo

A prismatic portrait of collective trauma and resistance, as a devastating hurricane hits Puerto Rico as it struggles through a debt crisis. A look at the kinship of these two storms--one environmental, the other economic--juxtaposing competing utopian visions of recovery, from residents and outside “helpers”.

Director Cecilia Aldarondo, UNDP Climate and Disaster Resilience expert Stanislav Kim, and Social Scientist and Urban Researcher Murat Güney will engage in a discussion after the screening.

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
