The School of Social Policy and Practice and the Center for Experimental Ethnography co-presented a screening of The Rape of Recy Taylor directed by Nancy Buirski (USA, 91 mins, 2017). Director Nancy Buirski was present via Skype. The screening of The Rape of Recy Taylor was preceded by When We Came Up Here: Adeline Behline (USA, 2016, 6:06 min) by Tina Morton.
This event featured a performance of Samuel Beckett’s rarely seen short plays, including a screening of his one and only film (entitled Film), starring Buster Keaton. These extraordinary, tragicomic short plays – Footfalls, Rough for Theatre I, Come and Go, Catastrophe, and his film Film – are full of humor, darkness, and humanity reduced to its essence. This was an unprecedented collaboration of the Theatre Arts and the Cinema and Media Studies Programs that engaged Beckett’s legacy in two dimensions, live and onscreen.
