The Phillips Collection Screens 'Ali: Fear Eats the Soul' July 13

July 6, 2017

In conjunction with its current exhibition of post-World War II artist, Markus Lüpertz, The Phillips Collection is screening the classic film, Ali: Fear Eats the Soul on July 13th from 6:30 to 8:00 pm.

 

Written and directed by a leader of the New German Cinema movement Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Ali: Fear Eats the Soul (1974) is the story of an unlikely relationship between an elderly woman and a Moroccan migrant worker in postwar Germany. With themes that remain relevant today, the film is considered a masterpiece by the German director, screenwriter, producer, and actor who created a prolific portfolio of work during the same period as Markus Lüpertz. Both Fassbinder and Lüpertz are viewed as masters in their respective fields. 

 

Please note that this film is intended for mature audiences.

A RiverPalooza Summer

July 2, 2017

Through September, 4, 2017, take part in a number of adventures organized by Potomac Riverkeeper Network.

 

Best known for their work identifying and addressing sources of pollution in the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers, Potomac Riverkeeper Network, also wants you to have fun.

 

While most involve a canoe, kayak, raft, tube or stand up paddle board, there is a bike trip for those who prefer to enjoy the river from a distance. Participating in any of these trips supports their work fighting to keep our rivers clean. “We partner with outfitters and the National Park Service to organize RiverPalooza because we believe the best way to build appreciation for our rivers is to experience our rivers” says Shenandoah Riverkeeper Mark Frondorf.

 

Trips on the Chesapeake and Potomac Heritage National Historic Trails, will have NPS interpreters on hand to educate the public about the role these parts of the river played in the formative years of our nation.

 

“If you’re thinking of getting out on the river this year, RiverPalooza is the best way to do it. You can save a little money while saving our rivers” says Brent Walls, Upper Potomac Riverkeeper. Riverkeepers choose their favorite stretches of river for their trips and participants have the opportunity to ask about what is being done to protect them. Choose one of the camping trips and you can spend the night with a Riverkeeper.
