Jengo's Playhouse 815 Princess Street, Wilmington, NC, United States

When wundergeezer Mitchell Rose presents The Usually Funny Dance-Films of Mitchell Rose, it'll be more than just a frolic through the comic short dance-films spanning the oeuvre of the artiste, it'll also be an opportunity to have kombucha and Raisinets. The screening is the convergence of the two lives of Mitchell Rose—a former choreographer, now a filmmaker whose offbeat short films have won 100+ awards. The films are manically funny, often poignant, and always surprising. First up in the program's seven shorts is Deere John. A man and a 22-ton John Deere excavator dance a duet of discovery, fulfillment, and the problems that any diesel-based relationship will face. Another selection is the viral short Learn to Speak Body. With over 3 million views online, it's a language instructional video… but for body language. Yes, in just a few easy lessons you too can learn to speak body just like Earthlings do.

Jengo’s Playhouse: The Film is the Dance – Workshop with Mitchell Rose

Jengo's Playhouse 815 Princess Street, Wilmington, NC, United States

Mitchell is professor of dance-film and on Saturday morning he will give a talk entitled "The Film is the Dance." For people who've spent most of their lives envisioning dance on stage, it's natural to think of dance-film as beautifully recorded choreography. One envisions wide shots of whole bodies that stay the same size, in the same space, in linear time. Like on stage. There are more possibilities. Dance-film is film and it requires film thinking. So to step into this different world, it's important to loosen attachments to long-developed thinking patterns, and see with new eyes.

Bechtler Museum of Modern Art: Modernism + Film: Columbus

Bechtler Museum of Modern Art 420 South Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC, United States

Columbus, directed by Kogonada, revolves around Jin, a Korean-born man who becomes stranded in Columbus, Indiana, due to his architect father's coma. In this small Midwestern town, he encounters Casey, a young woman with her own struggles. Casey wishes to stay in Columbus to support her recovering addict mother, deferring her own aspirations. As Jin and Casey form a unique connection, the film explores themes of identity, responsibility, and the choices we make in the face of familial and personal challenges. The architectural backdrop of Columbus serves as a metaphor, reflecting the characters' journey of self-discovery and the intersections of their lives.

Bechtler Museum of Modern Art: Modernism + Film: Last Things

Bechtler Museum of Modern Art 420 South Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC, United States

Last Things by Deborah Stratman traces its origins to J.-H. Rosny's novellas, exploring natural, prehistoric, and speculative themes. Inspired by Rosny's pluralist vision of evolution, the film intertwines diverse influences—Roger Caillois' writings on stones, Robert Hazen's theory on Mineral Evolution, Clarice Lispector's "Hour of the Star," Lynn Margulis' Symbiosis theory, Donna Haraway's multi-species scenarios, Hazel Barton's cave microbe research, and Marcia Bjornerud's time literacy. The narrative, blending science fiction and science fact, features passages from Rosny and interviews with Bjornerud, challenging the centrality of humankind in evolutionary processes. Stones serve as the film's anchor, connecting with alien durations and highlighting the transient nature of archives, where only particles endure.
