Roger Beebe’s Projector Performance Roadshow

Location: Holmes Auditorium
Cost: Free
Sponsored by: Art History

Filmmaker/curator/professor Roger Beebe, who has been crisscrossing North America with his multi-projector performances and essayistic videos for more than a decade, comes to Alfred for the first time on Sept. 20. The program features new work, completed during his residency at the Headlands Center for the Arts earlier this year, alongside some of his best-known projector performances (including the six-projector show-stopping "Last Light of a Dying Star"). These works take on a range of strategies from formalist investigations of the materials of film to essayistic explorations of popular culture and a range of topics from Las Vegas suicides ("Money Changes Everything") to the secret logic of the book of Genesis ("Beginnings") and the real spaces of the virtual economy ("Amazonia").

First Year Student Required Fire Safety Training

FIRE SAFETY TRAINING
ALL FIRST YEAR STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND
(including transfer and exchange students)
September 23, 2019 - Monday
5:00 PM OR 8:00 PM
Holmes Auditorium - Harder Hall
PLEASE ATTEND ONE SESSION

Alfred University will be hosting Shawn Simons and Alvaro Llanos
the inspiration for, "After The Fire: A True Story of Friendship and Survival" by Robin Gaby Fisher, a Pulitzer Prize story and New York Times best seller.

From the Amazon.com book review: "Every so often we encounter a story that makes us cry and makes us strong, that makes us want to hug our children and call our old friends. This bestselling book captures just such a drama in all its heartrending drama.

On January 19, 2000, a fire raged through a Seton Hall dormitory, killing three students and injuring 58 others. Among the victims were Shawn Simons and Alvaro Llanos, roommates from poor neighborhoods who had made their families proud by getting into college.

After the Fire is the story of Shawn and Alvaro's fight to recover from the worst damage St. Barnabas Hospital's burn unit had ever seen. It is the story of doctors and nurses who work with those terribly touched by fire. It is the story of mothers and fathers, of faith and family. And it is the story of the women who loved these men, who knew that real beauty is a thing not seen in mirrors."

All are welcomed if space is available.
