Tel Aviv on Fire

Saturday, Aug 24, 2019 various times - English

One of the most irreverent cinematic spins on the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, the latest from writer-director Sameh Zoabi follows a fledgling soap-opera scenarist (Kais Nashif) tasked with concocting plot twists to suit riveted viewers on both sides. Zoabi’s ingenious satire exudes a deadpan audacity that’s impossible to resist, while Nashef’s outwardly unflappable middleman grounds this battle of ideologies in irresistible comic pragmatism. Tel Aviv on Fire won’t bring peace to the Middle East, but having everyone laughing together is a step in the right direction.

Jackie Brown

Saturday, Aug 24, 2019 at 10:45 PM - English

Quentin Tarantino set his sights on the Blaxploitation genre with his third film, Jackie Brown. Adapted from an Elmore Leonard novel (though regrettably switching the action from Miami to LA), it follows Jackie Brown (Pam Grier), a stewardess who, with the help of a no-nonsense bail bondsman (Robert Forster), arrives at a bold plan to play her gunrunner boss Ordell Robbie (Samuel Jackson) and the cops (Michael Keaton and Michael Bowen) against one another after she’s busted for smuggling cash into the U.S. Jackie Brown is arguably the most underrated entry in QT’s filmography, likely because it eschews his traditional violent standoffs and flashy flourishes for a realistic take on the criminal underworld grounded by characters who live and breathe like we do. Much of this also stems from tour de force performances from the entire cast but especially Grier, who received numerous acting nominations for a role that certainly pays homage – and builds upon – her status as the 70s Blaxploitation queen.

Clemenza & Tessio Are Dead

Saturday, Aug 24, 2019 various times - English

Peter Clemenza and Salvatore Tessio are two longtime foot soldiers of the Corleone crime family, but after more than 40 years of service, upper management changes in the organization and a perceived lack of respect from the incoming generation leads them to wonder if they're being put out to pasture (or under it). But with the handwriting already on the wall, is it possible to change what fate has already decreed? Well, yes; but only if someone is cunning enough to radically change the script.

An unauthorized parody of The Godfather (1972), screenplay by Mario Puzo and Francis Ford Coppola, based on the novel by Mario Puzo, CLEMENZA & TESSIO ARE DEAD takes a look at two little-noticed cogs in the Mafia machine and shows how those wise guys who are often overlooked can actually have the most fascinating stories of all.

Tickets: $20.00 – $35.00

Anna Gibson’s Bio:
Anna is predominantly self-taught in what she sees and the technical knowledge she has. She calls it a gift, but just does her work naturally and it turns out. Anna still loves learning new photography techniques. She loves to photograph locally and often heads to the beach long before others even think of waking. “The best shots of the sunrise, after all, start roughly an hour before the sun peeks over the horizon. I’ve gotten some of my best photos in the rain and the bitter cold and the sauna-caliber heat of a Florida day,” she said. When commissioned to do a particular piece you will find her in the same spot again and again, vying for the perfect lighting or perfect colors for what she envisions. “I wouldn’t quite call it an obsession, but some people might,” Anna said.

Sam Carfora’s Bio:
Sami has always felt drawn to capture moments, well before ever owning a camera. Her drive to tell as many stories as she can is what propelled her into the art form of photography. Each of her photos is backed by an internal need to seek out beauty, to put truth to pictures, and to convey raw emotion. The goal of her pieces is that the viewer will experience the same feeling she had while taking it; that in the cross-hairs of creativity and perfect timing, a connection between artist and audience will be formed. Sami feels that the ultimate compliment is to have her art displayed in someone’s home – to have been invited into their sacred space.

Hew Locke: For Those in Peril on the Sea

Saturday, Aug 24, 2019 various times - English

This exhibition presents the second iteration of For Those in Peril on the Sea (2011), an installation by Hew Locke (b. 1959, Edinburgh; lives in London) first shown in 2013 during PAMM's inaugural programming. Consisting of dozens of scaled-down replicas of ships suspended from the ceiling, the installation creates the impression of a massive exodus taking place throughout the architectural space above the viewer. It features a broad range of vessel types, from cigarette boats, catamarans, and cruise liners to ragged fishing skiffs and timeworn cargo ships. In light of Miami's history as the site for numerous waves of immigration particularly from the Caribbean, and specifically by sea For Those in Peril on the Sea will have a particular resonance for the Museum's audiences. With its significant links to the South Florida community, this installation, part of Pérez Art Museum Miami's permanent collection, promises a powerful experience for visitors.

All That Is Solid

Saturday, Aug 24, 2019 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM - English

When considering the idea of form and function, a conversation arises between objects that exist as façade-inaccessible metonymic references to that which is concrete. ALL THAT IS SOLID exploits this concept to examine both social and economic development and the implications on urban growth as it relates to Miami's creative ecology.

Show more >>

Coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus movement, ALL THAT IS SOLID pays homage to this brief yet defining moment in history that succeeded in pollinating disparate relationships between design, architecture, and performance. The exhibition highlights artists who converge at the intersection of form, function, material, and action.

ALL THAT IS SOLID is presented by MDDA and co-organized by Miami collaborative groups Ground Control and Placeholder, collectively known as GCP.
