New York screening Craig Monahan's of Healing

When: Friday, 14 August, 3:00pm
Where: DGA New York Theater, 110 West 57th Street New York, NY 10010
Registration essential
RSVP: 212-258-0800 or istewart@dga.org

Attend a special NY screening of Australian feature film 'Healing' starring Hugo Weaving and Don Hany. Come and hear Director Craig Monahan speak about the film in a post-screening Q+A. Presented by the Directors Guild of America and Australian Directors Guild.

Healing is a powerful, moving story of redemption, the discovery of hope and the healing of the spirit -- in the most unlikely place, for the most unique men, through the most unusual catalyst. Don Hany (Underbelly, Offspring) plays Viktor Khadem, the real-life criminal who was sentenced to the unthreatening environment of a low-security prison farm, with the hope that he'd become reformed for the remaining 18 months of his 16-year sentence. Weaving plays Matt Perry, the case worker who believes in the unique program of rehabilitating broken men by giving them the responsibility of healing injured birds like eagles, falcons and owls. He introduces Viktor to an eagle with a two-metre wingspan, and the film explores the notion of whether the two creatures tame each other. More⇒

Stalker: The Musical

When: Friday 14 August - Wednesday 27 August
Where: Lynn Redgrave Theater at Culture Project, 45 Bleecker Street, (Corner of Bleecker and Lafayette Street)
Click here for tickets

Stalker is a deliberately provocative title. But the show isn’t really that controversial. It creates a dystopian world, where ‘stalking’ women is the norm, men are encouaged to look, and even to touch – and the girls in turn love the attention. There is only one rule in town, people do not and cannot fall in love. The town is thrown into chaos when a stranger arrives on the scene, a stranger not from this world, who has no idea how he arrived or how to leave. Worse still, the stranger introduces the town to the concept of ‘love’, with tumultuous results. More⇒

Kitty Napanangka Simon: ONLY WOMEN DANCE TILL DAWN

When: Friday, 24 July - Sunday, 16 August
Opening reception: Friday 31 July, 6:00pm-8:00pm
Where: Chasm Gallery - 56 Bogart St, Brooklyn, NY

The salt lake, Mina Mina, is a sacred place to Warlpiri women. Kitty Napanganka Simon is one of Mina Mina's senior custodians and a keeper of Women's Law for this remote and isolated desert landscape, near Lake Mackay, Western Australia.

This Dreaming site, the subject of Simon's paintings, was created by Karntakurlangu, a large group of ancestral women who danced across the vast salt plain feeding on its wild fruits. The rhythm of their dancing vibrated through the Country creating undulating sandhills, water courses and clay pans.

Through the very act of painting, Simon revises and vivifies her knowledge of Country and its creation story, which brought Mina Mina into existence. More⇒

Clinton The Musical

When: Now showing until Sunday, 6 September
Where: New World Stages, 340 West 50th Street, New York, NY
Click here for tickets

CLINTON THE MUSICAL explores the two very different sides of the 42nd President of the United States: "WJ," the wholesome, intelligent one, and "Billy," the randy, charming one. With Hillary (Rodham) Clinton at their side, the two will handle issues from The White House to Whitewater, the sax to the sex, social security to social climbers, and in the process make history. Maybe. More⇒
