Tribeca Cinemas Presents "The High Cost of Living" - Tribeca Cinemas
September 09, 2011 - Manhattan

Written and directed by Deborah Chow, this film starts with an accident. Henry (Zach Braff) makes a wrong turn and crashes into Nathalie (Isabelle Blais). In a fit of panic and over the legal limit, he runs away, leaving Nathalie lying in the street, unconscious, bleeding, and eight months pregnant. She wakes up in the hospital only to find her bright future destroyed and the baby she is still carrying dead. Her husband, Michel (Patrick Labbe) is too unnerved and emotionally bereft to deal with the tragedy. As her life unravels, she stumbles across Henry – who has been secretly searching for his victim. Unaware who he really is, Nathalie sees him as an unlikely guardian angel, everything Michel is not – compassionate, charming, and a little crazy. She finds a welcome relief in the tall, rumpled stranger that seems only too willing to offer her refuge. But Henry has his own problems. His past is catching up with him, and he soon discovers that the police are steadily closing in. The inevitable collision will force Henry and Nathalie to confront loss and life, and to ultimately decide whether the high cost of living is worth the price.

Tribeca Cinemas Presents 'Beware the Gonzo' - Tribeca Cinemas
September 09, 2011 - Manhattan

First-time director Bryan Goluboff's film is the story of a 17-year-old student who starts a revolution in his high school but nearly loses himself in the process. Eddie "Gonzo" Gilman (Ezra Miller) is the quintessential outsider - too smart to be a follower and too outspoken to be accepted. When Gavin Riley, the hugely popular editor of the newspaper (Jesse McCartney), fires Gonzo from the paper, Gavin has no idea what events he has inadvertently set into motion. Once ousted, Gonzo takes on a new role and thus a new era at the school is born. Gonzo becomes a rebel with a cause. Gonzo decides to become the voice of the oppressed, uniting all the nerds, outcasts, and geeks in the school. With help from a beautiful outsider (Zoe Kravitz), he begins publishing his own underground newspaper, one that isn't afraid to question authority and infuriate the school's principal and staff. But the more he uncovers about the injustices in his school, the more he learns that the truth comes with consequences in this fresh teen-angst comedy. The film also features Amy Sedaris, Campbell Scott, and Judah Friedlander.

Together, they work towards Shepard's true passion while facing rejection at every turn. With maniacal conviction, Shepard journeys on a bizarre path that becomes increasingly nonsensical and destructive, all at the expense and exploitation of his personal and professional relationships. The Hollywood satire also features performances by Bradley Cooper and David Koechner ("Anchorman"), among others.

BLOWOFF Featuring The DJ Sounds Of Bob Mould & Richard Morel - Highline Ballroom
September 09, 2011 -

BOB MOULD and RICHARD MOREL's BLOWOFF is a DJ event that has become a premier destination for a wide cross-section of appreciative music fans. Originating in Washington, DC, BLOWOFF is an established event in DC, New York, San Francisco, Provincetown, Chicago, and San Diego. Maintaining the musical emphasis of the BLOWOFF parties, Mould and Morel DJ in tandem, laying down a signature mix of indie rock, electro and house, accented by a series of artfully eye-popping vignettes projected throughout the club. Originally a musical collaboration between Washington, DC-based singer-songwriters Bob Mould—formerly of alt rock bands Hüsker Dü and Sugar—and electronic producer/artist Richard Morel, BLOWOFF began in 2003 at DC's Velvet Lounge. The DC party moved to the legendary 9:30 Club in July 2003, and within a few years became the preeminent DJ event on the east coast. With the focus firmly placed on cutting edge music, dazzling live visuals by Nick Lopata, and stunning poster art by Baltimore-based artist Linas Garsys, the BLOWOFF audiences grew exponentially. The BLOWOFF artist CD was released in 2006 on Full Frequency Music. Live performances to promote the album included headline sets at Homo A Go Go (Olympia, WA) and the 2006 Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco. BLOWOFF is now a regular bi-coastal event. 2007 saw the highly successful launch of BLOWOFF New York, with BLOWOFF San Francisco, Brooklyn and Provincetown following in 2008. The BLOWOFF Chicago events held at Metro during International Mr. Leather and Bear Pride Weekend in 2009 and 2010 were the highlights of both events. Richard Morel is known for his remixes under the name Pink Noise, including the Killers, Yoko Ono, and Pet Shop Boys. In addition, Morel co-wrote and co-produced three songs on Cyndi Lauper's "Bring Ya To The Bring" album and released his third solo album as Morel, "The Death Of The Paper Boy," in 2008. Bob Mould, founding member of the seminal punk band Husker Du and alt-rock favorite Sugar, released his ninth solo album, "Life And Times" (Anti- Records), on April 7, 2010. Mould's yet-to-be-titled autobiography, with assistance from Michael Azerrad, will be published by Little, Brown in spring 2011.

Turkish Taste at the Court of Marie-Antoinette - Frick Collection
Through September 11, 2011 -

France has long been fascinated by the Ottoman Empire, and for hundreds of years the taste for turquerie was evident in French fashion, literature, theater and opera, painting, architecture, and interior decoration. Turquerie, a term that came into use in the early nineteenth century, referred to essentially anything produced in the West that evoked or imitated Turkish culture. It was during the late eighteenth century at the court of Marie-Antoinette that the Turkish style reached new heights, inspiring some of the period's most original creations, namely boudoirs or cabinets decorated entirely in the Turkish manner. In 1776 and 1777, several operas and plays with Turkish themes were performed at the French court, increasing the nobility's interest in Turkish style. Soon thereafter, three interiors à la turque were created for the comte d'Artois, Louis XVI's younger brother, and Marie-Antoinette commissioned boudoirs turcs for her apartments at Versailles and Fontainebleau. Since these retreats were intended for private entertaining, interior decorators were allowed more freedom than was permitted for the official, more public apartments at court. The highly theatrical rooms featured furniture and wall panels decorated with turbaned figures, camels, palm trees, and other Turkish motifs, but their form and function remained essentially French. Created for the royal family and wealthy aristocrats, the objects were always of the highest quality, made by the best artists and craftsmen of the day. This summer, The Frick Collection will present a dossier exhibition featuring several pieces made in the Turkish manner for members of the French court, including a pair of console tables acquired by Henry Clay Frick in 1914, that illustrate a particularly inventive aspect of French eighteenth-century decorative style. The exhibition is organized by Charlotte Vignon, Associate Curator of Decorative Arts, The Frick Collection.

Through September 15, 2011 - New York

Tibet House US is proud to present an inspirational photography exhibit of archival pigment prints that celebrates the life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, his extraordinary impact on the modern world, and the Tibetan people he has guided in exile. The exhibit The Dalai Lama and His People showcases renowned photographer Don Farber’s works, which are also available in his latest book His Holiness the Dalai Lama. This exhibit coincides with the Dalai Lama's 76th birthday and the Kalachakra Initiation for World Peace in Washington D.C. The exhibition can be viewed from July 5th to September 15th with a special opening reception and book signing on July 19th from 6pm to 8pm, at Tibet House US. The Dalai Lama and His People beautifully captures the many facets of His Holiness the Dalai Lama across a 30-year span. His quieter moments in meditation present the private, contemplative individual. He is also seen giving teachings to thousands on stage, leading prayers with his fellow monks, and offering intimate blessings. With each moment captured, compassion, joy and sense of purpose emanate from this voice of world peace, self-proclaimed simple monk, and leader of the Tibetan people. This exhibition also features stunning photographs of Tibetans– child monks at play, women bedecked in turquoise, men dressed in ceremonial regalia, and faithful pilgrims journeying across the vast Himalayas. This range of photography provides an excellent glimpse into the joy and deeper spiritual purpose resonating within this endangered culture of the Tibetan people. Robert A. F. “Tenzin” Thurman, the President of Tibet House US says, "Don Farber has given us a great gift, using his consummate artistry to open a window upon the intimate presence of His Holiness at home, out in the world helping people, contemplating the ocean of life with his unaverted gaze of love and compassion.” Don Farber is one of the most significant chroniclers of Buddhism today. He has photographed Buddhist life for three decades and has been a special photographer for the Dalai Lama since 1989. He brings the spirit of modern Tibetan Buddhism alive with the inspirational exhibition, The Dalai Lama and His People. By following his footsteps through this photographic journey, we receive a rare view into the life of this beloved world religious leader. The photographs in the exhibition are available now in Farber's latest book, His Holiness the Dalai Lama –a vibrant collection of outstanding photographs presented with brief biographies and teachings–published by teNeues.
