5:00 PM Talk: Racism in German and American Cinema of the Twenties Please join the UC San Diego Jewish Studies Program and UC San Diego Library for a lecture by Charles Musser on Thursday, October 24, 2019 from 4-7 p.m. in the Atkinson Hall Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public. RSVP is required at https://hlhw_musser.eventbrite.com.

Yale University professor and filmmaker Charles Musser considers the historical and contemporary perspectives of race relations in German and American cinema from the 1920s by examining The Ancient Law (1923) and The Jazz Singer (1927). He evaluates how each film addresses antisemitism as well as the burning question of the history of blackface as a theatrical convention. Musser is the author of numerous essays and books including, the award-winning title, The Emergence of Cinema: The American Screen to 1907.

A panel discussion follows, moderated by Frank Mecklenburg (Leo Baeck Institute New York) with Deborah Hertz (UC San Diego), Allan Havis (UC San Diego), and Cynthia Walk (UC San Diego).

7:30 PM SDIFF Film: A Casa Tutti Bene + Short: The Place of Happiness An unexpected storm strands a family, gathered together to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of two elderly parents, Pietro and Alba, on the small island of Ischia in Southern Italy. The numerous relatives are forced to live together under the same roof for two days and two nights with no way out. The lives of the siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews, become ineluctably intertwined, lingering between a past which rehashes old and unforgotten disputes, a present which rekindles unresolved conflicts, and a future which appears to be uncertain for everyone. The island morphs into a labyrinth of passion and everyone must reckon with their own personal, sentimental, family, or professional circumstances.

Admission/Cost: $12

Location:
