With filmmakers Amelia Bane ‘12, Ted Hogeman ‘09, and Christopher Mariles ‘12

We Are Not Done Yet is a creative journey of ten U.S. veterans of varied backgrounds who come together in hopes of battling their traumatic military pasts through the art of written word. Grappling with PTSD, the “warrior poets” share fears, vulnerabilities, and victories that, eventually culminate into a live performance of a collaborative poem under the direction of actor Jeffrey Wright. In the process of creating their poetry and rehearsing for the performance, these men and women build a new-found tribe in one another, allowing them to share the too often hidden truths about their intimacy with war, death, and trauma.

!Women, Art, Revolution


Friday, February 1, 5:30 PM
2010, USA, 83 min, Not Rated, English
Presented by 100 Years of Women and the Muscarelle Museum of Art

An entertaining and revelatory “secret history” of Feminist Art, !Women Art Revolution deftly illuminates this under-explored movement through conversations, observations, archival footage and works of visionary artists, historians, curators and critics. Starting from its roots in 1960s antiwar and civil rights protests, the film details major developments in women’s art through the 1970s and explores how the tenacity and courage of these pioneering artists resulted in what is now widely regarded as the most significant art movement of the late 20th century.

They Live in Guinea


Saturday, February 2, 11:00 AM
1996, USA, 51 min, Not Rated, English
Produced by Professor Sharon Zuber

They Live in Guinea tells the story of a hard-working, self-sufficient, fiercely independent community of fishermen and women working the waters of Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay. Guinea Neck, a once isolated village, must now grapple with conservationists, government regulators, and the sports fishing industry in order to preserve its way of life. The documentary not only captures the colorful, dynamic character of the Guinea “watermen” and the rhythms of their work and speech, but also traces the complex changes thrust upon their traditional ways by a fast-food society that threatens their ability to live off the water.

Finding Cajun


Saturday, February 2, 2:30 PM
2018, USA, 51 min, Not Rated, French and English with English Subtitles
Directed, Produced, and Narrated by Professor Nathan Rabalais

Finding Cajun presents a critical and historically informed perspective on the origin and evolution of Cajun identity and the complex issues being debated today. We see how Cajuns compare to the present-day Acadians in maritime Canada, a community that is supposedly at the historical root of Cajun ethnicity. The film examines how cultural and racial labels in Louisiana have shifted, especially over the past 70 years, and considers the stakes of maintaining (or losing) heritage languages in the United States. Through interviews with leading experts filmed on site in Louisiana, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, viewers will discover the diversity and complexity of South Louisiana’s French- and Creole-speaking communities and see how Americanization, racism, and language shift have reshaped the cultural landscape of Louisiana.

Young and Innocent throws a haze across Hitchcock’s spartan menace, replacing autumnal chill with summer swelter, and adult frailty with the languageless longings of adolescence.” – New Orleans Film Society.
