At St Thomas, Portrayal of Evil and Good in Film

St. Thomas Aquinas Chapel at the University of Connecticut will host two Aquinas Lectures by Richard Alleva, Commonweal Film Critic, on Sunday, April 15 at 5:30 p.m. and Monday, April 16 at 7:30 p.m.

The presentations are free, and the public is cordially invited to share the insights of this distinguished speaker. Both lectures will be followed by periods for questions and open discussion.

The talks are titled:

Sunday, “A Divine Comedy at the Movies: Hell: Some Infernal Problems;

Monday, “Heaven: Some Celestial Limitations.”

Both will take place at the Aquinas Student Center, 46 North Eagleville Road on the Storrs Campus.

They will focus on the age-old dramatic conflict between good and evil, alternately examining how the motion-picture medium has portrayed each side of this struggle.

Richard Alleva, a native of Waterbury, earned a Bachelor of Arts in Drama from UConn and a Master of Fine Arts in Playwriting at the Catholic University of America.

His reviews focus on movies with religious themes, characters or feelings, as well as prominent films with secular themes of wide interest. He also looks for releases that have not garnered wide attention elsewhere, but offer good reasons not to miss them.

His articles have appeared in such works as The Best American Movie Writing, 1999, edited by Peter Bogdanovich (St. Martin’s Griffin), as well as several issues of Image magazine, edited by Geoffrey Wolfe.

One of the latter articles, “Starring the Devil: Hollywood’s Uncertain Grasp of Evil,” examined the long history of dramatic portrayal of evil, from medieval miracle plays through late 20th-century motion pictures.

It’s the height of summer and the kids are bored, what to do? Bring them to the 3rd Thursday Street Fest. There’s plenty to keep their minds active and their hands busy.

It all happens July 21st on Main Street in Romantic Willimantic from 6 to 9 p.m., where the fun is free and the parking (on side streets and municipal lots) is abundant.

Check out “People, Puppets, Pageantry and Parade” The name says it all. Local talents Johnnie Walker, Kristin Fortier and Sarah Winter create fun out of whole cloth and keep the kids’ interest alive. They will help make a giant caterpillar complete with faces. And they’ll get to show it all off on the street.

By the way, while the festival is free, purchasing a 3rd Thursday button helps support these activities.

Of course, there will be some great music at the Street Fest, such as Dan Stevens performing traditional blues and Cally McGrane and the Exiles doing Irish and Scottish tunes.

For dance music, listen to Larry Willy Band, a local R&B group or Kultura Borikua doing Puerto Rican cultural music. PANA! does Latin/pop rock.

Head Way Uptown for 9th Wave’s surf music, perfect for a hot summer night, followed by the cool sounds of Electric Trains.

Or, Way Downtown by the First Baptist Church you’ll enjoy Unleashed, Sound Judgement, Ra Ra’s homemade ice cream and Taste of the Islands foods. Oh yeah, and a dunking booth with Mayor Ernie and Jean de Smet (at 7:30 p.m.) to help raise funds to repair the church roof and steeple.

What else?

The Capital Theater Arts summer classic will have a summer circus sideshow and don’t forget I-98′s Windham Idol on North Street. DJ Glidden and WHS bands will be on Bank Street.

What’s to eat? 3rd Local vendors offer such goodies as wood-fire pizzas, Mc Henry’s footlong hotdogs, fried dough, pulled pork sandwiches, Indian and Spanish food and, new this year, apple cider donuts, clam and turkey corn chowder, fried seafood along with ice cream, beer and wine and our local Hosmer Mountain soda and floats.

There are more local vendors than ever selling arts and crafts, gadgets and more.

And local agencies greet you from their tables where they offer information about what they do.

Don’t forget to support the businesses along Main Street offering more food choices and goods. Wear your street fest button and get special discounts at participating merchants and in the beer and wine garden.

Mansfield's Festival on the Green will be on Sept. 25

July 15, 2011 Arts & Entertainment, Local News Comments Off

The Mansfield Downtown Partnership has two big changes in store for its 8th Annual Festival on the Green: a new date and a new location.

The 8th Annual Festival on the Green will take place Sunday, Sept. 25 from noon to 5 p.m. in the parking lots of E.O. Smith High School. Several factors prompted these changes. First, construction of the first phase of Storrs Center is expected to begin in 2011. With the close proximity of the Festival site to the construction area, the Committee felt it would be best to relocate the event temporarily.

The change in the date of the Festival was the result of a differ­ent consideration. Representatives from the University of Connec­ticut’s School of Fine Arts ap­proached the Committee with a proposal to coordinate the Festival with a special series of events planned for 2011. The academic year 2011-12 will mark the 50th anniversary of SFA as an official school at UConn.

“We have commemorative events planned throughout the year,” said David Woods, Dean of the School of Fine Arts, “including a special weekend in September to celebrate 50 years of arts and culture in Mansfield.

“Our hope is that the weekend will be a true community event, with residents of all ages joining in celebrating the arts.”

“The School of Fine Arts has been a major contributor to the Festival on the Green since its beginning,” said Partnership Exec­utive Director Cynthia van Zelm.

Betsy Paterson, chair of the Partnership’s Festival sub- com­mittee, added “We’ll still have all of the Partnership-sponsored Celebrate Mansfield Weekend events, including ‘Vintage Mans­field’ and ‘Picnicpalooza!’ dur­ing the Festival weekend. The Celebrate Mansfield events The Festival on the Green will be Sunday, Sept. 25 from noon – 5 p.m. at E.O. Smith High School. Celebrate Mansfield Weekend events will run Friday, Sept. 23 through Sunday, Sep. 25.

The School of Fine Arts anni­versary weekend events will run Thursday, Sept. 22 through Saturday, Sept. 24. For more infor­mation, visit www.mansfieldct.org/mdp.
