Undercover: Revealing Design in Quilts, Coverlets, and Bed Hangings (10:00 AM - 5:00 PM)
Albany Institute of History & Art
In the private space of the bedroom, the world takes center stage. There, on the elevated platform of the bed, matters of politics, international trade, social events, religion, and cultural affairs come alive in the elaborate designs and patterns displayed on American quilts, coverlets, and bed furnishings. Bed covers of all types are the perfect canvas for displaying ideas about the world beyond the bedroom door. They make connections to foreign lands and fabricate realms of fantasy and childhood whimsy. This exhibition investigates the designs and patterns that decorate American bedcovers of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. More than thirty bed covers and complementary objects reveal a variety of imagery used by American women and men to decorate their bed covers. Due to the light-sensitive nature of these textiles, these pieces are rarely on view and many have not been on public display for over thirty years. We are pleased to present them in this exhibition.
Cost: Adults $10, Seniors $8, Students (with ID) $8, Children (6-12) $6, Children (under 6) Free, Members Free

Snowpeircer (7:30 PM)
Saratoga Film Forum, 320 Broadway Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
South Korean Joon-ho Bong (Mother, The Host, and one-third of Tokyo!) directs his first English language film, a science-fiction epic based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige. In 2014, an attempt to reverse climate change falls prey to the law of unintended consequences and instead causes a new Ice Age, nearly killing all life on Earth. The survivors are gathered up and placed aboard the Snowpiercer, a kind of Supertrain powered by a perpetual-motion engine that travels on a globe-spanning track. On board, a class system is installed (of course), with the elites inhabiting the front of the train and poor inhabiting the tail-funny how some things never change. The train goes round and round for more than 15 years. In 2031, Curtis Everett (Chris Evans) leads the tail inhabitants in revolt. They force their way through several train cars to the prison section where they release prisoner Namgoong Minsu (Kang-ho Song), the man who built the security system that controls the doors dividing each car, and his clairvoyant daughter Yona (Ah-sung Ko). They offer Minsu uncut Kronole, a drug that both he and his daughter are addicted to, as payment for unlocking each of the remaining doors. From there, the revolutionaries head toward the front of the train as the Snowpiercer itself plunges headlong into disaster.

Paris, 1643. Dorante is a charming young man newly arrived in the capital, and he has but a single flaw: He cannot tell the truth.

What our hero regrettably does not know is that Clarice is secretly engaged to his best friend Alcippe. Nor is he aware that his father is trying to get him married to Clarice, whom he thinks is Lucrece, who actually is in love with him.

A Fierce Green Fire (7:30 PM)
Saratoga Film Forum, 320 Broadway Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
A Fierce Green Fire: The Battle for a Living Planet is the first big-screen history of the environmental movement-50 years of grassroots and global activism, from conservation to climate change. Written and directed by Academy Award-nominated Mark Kitchell (Berkeley in the Sixties), inspired by Philip Shabecoff's book of the same name, and narrated by Robert Redford, Ashley Judd, Van Jones, Isabel Allende, and Meryl Streep, the film unites all the disparate strands of environmentalism, focusing on activism, people fighting to save their homes, their lives, the future-and succeeding against all odds. The film tells five stories: David Brower and the Sierra Club's battle to halt dams in the Grand Canyon; Lois Gibbs and Love Canal residents' struggle against 20,000 tons of toxic chemicals; Paul Watson and Greenpeace's campaigns to save whales and baby harp seals; Chico Mendes and Brazilian rubbertappers' fight to save the Amazon rainforest; Bill McKibben and the 25-year effort to address climate change. Archival ffootage is combined with insightful interviews that shed light on the events and what they mean. The film offers a deeper view of environmentalism as civilizational change, bringing our industrial society into sustainable balance with nature. After the screening we will have a paneled discussion lead by: A.J. Schneller- Visiting Assistant Professor in the Environmental Studies Program at Skidmore College where he teaches Sustainable Development; US Public Lands and Oceans Policy and Law; Environmental Education; and the senior research capstone. Underwriting for our "In the Public Interest!" Movie Series comes from the Adirondack Trust Company Community Fund. The Film Forum is grateful for ATC's support.

Thousands of individuals of African descent came in search of opportunity and a better life in northern New York, but their experiences are largely absent from the historical record. Mr Stewart's book, "The Mysterious Black Migration 1800-1820", is the continuing byproduct of genealogical research he began in 2000. It is the second in a series of books relating to his families experiences in early New York. A book signing will follow Mr. Stewart's presentation. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the New York State Library. Registration is recommended.

Only Lovers Left Alive (7:30 PM)
Saratoga Film Forum, 320 Broadway Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
Jim Jarmusch's latest tells the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), who have been lovers for centuries. Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature, and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness. Adam is a reclusive underground musician hiding out in the ruins of contemporary Detroit and despairs about human civilization's decline. The much older Eve (she's about 3,000 years old to Adam's youthful 500) takes a longer view of history and is more optimistic. She leaves her home in the ancient city of Tangier to come to his side. As blood has been tainted by the zombies (humans), the formerly immortal Adam and Eve must secure uncontaminated blood from hospitals or they will perish. Eve's close friend, Elizabethan dramatist and unacknowledged author of Shakespeare's plays-Christopher Marlowe (John Hurt), is now an elder vampire who provides Eve with hospital blood. Adam gets his supply from Dr. Watson (Jeffrey Wright), a skittish hematologist who provides safe blood at a price. Adam and Eve's precarious footing is further threatened by the uninvited arrival of Eve's carefree and uncontrollable little sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska). Unlike Adam and Eve, Ava hasn't yet learned to tame her wilder instincts, and her recklessness concerns Adam. Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive is a meditation on art, science, memory, and the mysteries of everlasting love.

Recipients of the First Annual Arts Center Emerging and Established Artist Awards, Colin Boyd and Michael Oatman have teamed up to present an exhibition and book that looks at the natural world and the roles humans have in misshaping it. Using the literary format of the Abecedarius (e.g., "A is for Apple", "B is for Bear", "C is for Crops Patented by Monsanto", etc.), the two artists will turn the gallery into a walk-able cautionary tale - with a few nervous laughs for good measure. Opening on Halloween - a holiday that honors monsters - Abecedarius will usher viewers into historical realms of extinction, scientific mishap and mythology; Abecedarius will feature encounters with ideas unknown, undercooked and just plain stupid; and finally Abecedarius will import/export the violence and majesty of worlds labeled "out there", "in here" and "the future".

GOD THE FATHER FILM OPENS IN ALBANY, NEW YORK ON OCTOBER 31, 2014 (11:00 AM - 12:00 AM)
Regal Crossgates Stadium 18
MICHAEL FRANZESE, SON OF COLOMBO CRIME FAMILY UNDERBOSS JOHN "SONNY" FRANZESE, RECOUNTS HIS SPIRITUAL TRANSFORMATION IN TRUE LIFE DRAMA _________________________________________________________ (Albany, New York) October 16, 2014 - Rocky Mountain Pictures presents the riveting true life drama, God The Father. Opening in Albany, NY on October 31, 2014, God The Father takes audiences on the 'untold' personal journey into the life and spiritual transformation of Michael Franzese, a young and charismatic Capo in the Colombo crime family during the 1980's-90's, who's notorious father Sonny Franzese was also a renowned Underboss. It's a true story about mafia, money, love, loyalty and God. God The Father will be playing at the following theater in Albany: Regal Crossgates Stadium 18 120 Washington Avenue Ext., Ste 1 Albany, NY 12203 God The Father is narrated by Franzese himself and his story is told through a unique blend of archival footage, interviews, re-enactments, and animation. The film stars Tom Knight ("Doctors," Amazing Grace, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, "EastEnders"), Bashar Rahal (The Expendables 3, The Legend of Hercules), George Georgiou (300: Rise of an Empire, Game of Thrones, Mamma Mia!), and Amanda Fernando Stevens (Cloud 9, Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy). Co-written by Franzese and Moshe Diamant (The Black Dahlia, Tristan + Isolde), the true life drama is produced by Diamant, directed by Simon Fellows, and executive produced by Sagiv Diamant, Kevin Flannagan and Jonas McCord. The cinematographer is Academy Award-winner Vilmos Zsigmond (Close Encounters of the Third Kind, The Long Goodbye, The River). The movie follows Franzese, son of Colombo underboss John "Sonny" Franzese, who drops out of college to become a mobster and eventually a captain in the Colombo crime family making over $1 billion in undocumented income for "the family." While serving time in "the hole" in prison for racketeering, extortion, and tax fraud, Franzese discovers the Bible. Devouring its contents, he finds parallels between its teachings and his own experiences in the 'Life' translating into Franzese developing his own unique religious perspective and faith. "I spent over 20 years on the street, every day in violation of both God's laws and the laws of man," says Franzese. "I could have easily been dead or in prison for the rest of my life like most all of my former associates. The fact that I am both alive and free makes me one of the most fortunate, blessed men alive. God the Father tells my story in a most unique and entertaining way. The producers held nothing back. I'm excited about it and I believe you will be, too."

Only Lovers Left Alive (7:30 PM)
Saratoga Film Forum, 320 Broadway Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
Jim Jarmusch's latest tells the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), who have been lovers for centuries. Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature, and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness. Adam is a reclusive underground musician hiding out in the ruins of contemporary Detroit and despairs about human civilization's decline. The much older Eve (she's about 3,000 years old to Adam's youthful 500) takes a longer view of history and is more optimistic. She leaves her home in the ancient city of Tangier to come to his side. As blood has been tainted by the zombies (humans), the formerly immortal Adam and Eve must secure uncontaminated blood from hospitals or they will perish. Eve's close friend, Elizabethan dramatist and unacknowledged author of Shakespeare's plays-Christopher Marlowe (John Hurt), is now an elder vampire who provides Eve with hospital blood. Adam gets his supply from Dr. Watson (Jeffrey Wright), a skittish hematologist who provides safe blood at a price. Adam and Eve's precarious footing is further threatened by the uninvited arrival of Eve's carefree and uncontrollable little sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska). Unlike Adam and Eve, Ava hasn't yet learned to tame her wilder instincts, and her recklessness concerns Adam. Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive is a meditation on art, science, memory, and the mysteries of everlasting love.

Persona (7:30 PM)
Saratoga Film Forum, 320 Broadway Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
Written and directed by Ingmar Bergman • 83 min. • Sweden • 1966 • Not Rated • In Swedish with English subtitles Curated by Terry Diggory, Skidmore College Ingmar Bergman's 1966 classic psychological drama stars Bibi Andersson as a young nurse named Alma, and Liv Ullmann as Elisabet Vogler, a well-known stage actress who has suddenly stopped talking, despite there being no organic cause. Nearly catatonic when she is admitted to the hospital, Elisabet is taken to a seaside cottage and Alma tries nurse her back to health. The relationship between the two women becomes strained and the border between dream and reality becomes blurred. By the end of the film the identities of Alma and Elisabeth appear to merge-conveyed throughout the film with the iconic images of the character's faces overlapping. Terry Diggory is Emeritus Professor of English and former department chair at Skidmore College, where he taught courses on modern poetry and drama. He has published widely on the relations between literature and visual art. Since his retirement, an extensive study of Bergman led to the publication of The Mother's Role in Bergman's Persona, online in Film International. Our Town & Gown series introduces moviegoers to film-savvy scholars from several colleges in our region whose work has been profoundly shaped by fine cinema, and invites them to present and discuss a film of their choice. This program has received funding from the Skidmore Office of Community Relations, and from the Saratoga Program for Arts Funding, administered by Saratoga Arts, and made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York Legislature.

WEQXposure Showcase w/ DJ Kim (8:00 PM - 10:00 PM)
Caffe Lena - 47 Phila St., Saratoga Springs
DJ KIM, the taste-maker behind WEQX 102.7 FM's popular Sunday evening show EQXposure, hosts our 4th DJ Showcase. She's presenting three regional musicians who deserve your attention. A brief Q & A will lead each set so you can get to know the artist behind the songs. Kim has selected for us: MATT DURFEE - a familiar presence in the Capital Region's roots music scene, Durfee performs with aching honesty. Ballads and breath-taking instrumentals alternate with suprising covers and moments of lightness and laughter. CARL DANIELS - He's been called "a folk rock ray of sunshine on a bitter, gloomy winter day." (SwordPaw Music) With a weathered voice reminiscent of Elliott Smith and a torrent of lyrics a la Neutral Milk Hotel, Daniels blends indie folk and blues, delivering insights about the daily trials and challenges that bind us all together. HENRY'S RIFLE - Voted #3 solo artist in Metroland Readers Poll a couple years ago, Henry's Rifle is a one-man-band hammering out "Gothic Americana gone wild" (David Malachowski) on harmonica, guitar, runaway freight train banjo and heaps of foot-stompin'.

Jane Rothfield (fiddle, banjo, vocal) & Allan Carr (guitar,vocals) have been playing traditional and original Celtic and Appalachian music for over 30 years. Originally from Aberdeen, Carr was raised with the rich traditional music of his native land & is an especially fine singer. Jane is an award winning fiddler, clawhammer banjo player and tune composer with deep roots in the traditions of New England, Scotland and the American South. Great singing, hot instrumentals, and a big heap of Allan's humor makes for a lot of fun! Greg Artzner & Terry Leonino's Magpie represents the activist end of the folk music spectrum. Their music doesn't just sound good, it does good. For more than forty years they've raised consciousness, hopes and spirits with songs about the earth and its people. And because they are musicians as well as activists, they mix their topical songs up with a rainbow of classics that draw on Terry's skills as a jazz and blues singer, and Greg's rollicking fingerstyle guitar.

Free Quilling Class: Snowman/Snowflakes (6:00 PM - 7:00 PM)
Troy Main Library, 100 Second St, Troy, NY 12180
Snowflakes/Snowman Ornaments will be created for this 1.5 hour class. Sign up either by calling the library or online by visiting the library's calendar of events. Quilling or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is wound around a quill to create a basic coil shape. The paper is then glued at the tip and these shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various ornamental patterns similar to ironwork. During the Renaissance, French and Italian nuns and monks used quilling to decorate book covers and religious items. The paper most commonly used was strips of paper trimmed from the gilded edges of books. These gilded paper strips were then rolled to create the quilled shapes. Quilling often imitated the original ironwork of the day.

Rob Ritchie (keyboard and vocals for Tanglefoot), Al Parrish (bass and vocals), and Steve Ritchie (guitar and vocals) have re-connected as RPR. Along with dynamic percussionist Beaker Granger, the new configuration affords the four veteran performers the opportunity to stretch their wings, indulging in musical whims and creating a memorable experience of arresting music, stories, laughter and reminiscence. It's irreverant and poignant, gentle as a whisper and explosively energetic. And whether it's an original country song of Al's, Steve's recollection of a Robert Plant version of an old Dylan tune, or Rob's incisive musical humour, all the trademark harmony, the chemistry, the impact are all there.

The Sage Colleges Present: Artist Lecture Series- Benjamin Entner (7:00 PM)
Sage College of Albany, Opalka Gallery
Benjamin Entner creates works that are the result of conceptual play and material experimentation. Entner's work actively engages a viewer to intimately react and interact through the use of humor, wonder, and large physical presence. Entner writes, "When I work, I am very conscious of my viewer and, often, I want to make my viewers conscious of themselves. I try to accomplish this by creating a presence of an object or installation that interrupts or intervenes in a viewer's passive viewing of a piece, and forces them to actively experience it." Benjamin Entner's current body of work is exploring the boundaries and interplay between two and three dimensional methods of making. Specifically, the point at which a drawing can become form and an object can become representation. These works are made with a keen awareness to art historical precedents and are often a direct reference to or parody of the figurative work of Classical and Renaissance masters. Benjamin's work has shown nationally and internationally; most recently with exhibitions at the Contemporary Arts Center of Las Vegas, the Soap Factory of Minneapolis, the Kenneth J Minnaert Center of the Arts in Olympia, WA, as well as, SOMA Kunstgeneratorinstitusjon in Bergen, Norway, and the Handwerker Gallery of Ithaca College.

The Kennedys (8:00 PM - 10:00 PM)
Caffe Lena - 47 Phila St., Saratoga Springs
In a career spanning two decades, New York duo Pete and Maura Kennedy have traversed a broad musical landscape, surveying power pop, acoustic songwriting, organic rock rooted in their early days in Austin, and a Byrds-inspired jangle that drew the attention of Roger McGuinn, Steve Earle, and most notably Nanci Griffith. The duo co-produced Nanci's latest CD. On their own recent release, "Closer Than You Know", the songs have a quality, inherent in Maura's voice, that is both soothing and urgent. As writers and producers, the Kennedys continue to mature, from their early style-conscious pop to today's burnished sheen. Always tuned to their own muse, Pete and Maura have once again come up with a unique sound that is as uplifting as it is unique.

Albany Pro Musica: In Paradisum -- Requiems by Gabriel Fauré and Raymond Torres-Santos (7:30 PM)
Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, 30 Second Street, Troy, NY 12180
With the Capital District Youth Chorale and Orchestra Pro Musica -- Gabriel Fauré started a trend when he composed his beloved Requiem. Diverting from the dramatic exploitation of the "day of wrath" by his predecessors, Fauré saw "death as a happy deliverance, an aspiration towards happiness above, rather than as a painful experience." This same spirit is echoed by celebrated Puerto Rican composer Raymond Torres-Santos in his unique Requiem. His love for film music is apparent in this melodious work, and this performance will be a New York State premiere. While Fauré's lullaby-like approach to paradise is sweet and tender, Torres-Santos takes you to paradise in an exhilarating explosion of joy. Tickets available at Albany Pro Musica's website or by calling 518-346-6204.

Eric Paslay-Vapor Live (7:00 PM)
Vapor Night Club-Saratoga Casino and Raceway
Born in Abilene, Texas and raised in Waco and Temple. By the age of 16, Paslay had already written and recorded 10 songs that he played out around Texas. When Paslay moved to Nashville to pursue a music career, he eventually landed his own deal with the Cal IV in 2006. His songwriting and his impressive voice began garnering attention from labels and he signed with EMI Records Nashville. Paslay says he began writing songs because he wanted to sing them for people. "I turn it on when I get on stage. I love to entertain," says Paslay. Fans who have seen him on stage will testify there is so much more to the tall, Texas redhead than his excellent songwriting ability. Paslay is a charismatic performer and a potent vocalist who knows how to connect with an audience. As his hit singles "Friday Night" and "Song About A Girl" reach the upper level of the charts, Paslay has arrived as an artist in his own right.
