I Learn America

Directed by Jean-Michel Dissard & Gitte Peng(52min)
ArtRage Gallery, 505 Hawley Avenue @ N. Crouse, Syracuse   315-218-5711   www.artragegallery.org 

The children of immigration, here to stay, are the new Americans. How we fare in welcoming them will determine the nature of this country in the 21st century and beyond. In “I Learn America,” five resilient immigrant teenagers come together over a year at the NYC International High School at Lafayette, and struggle to learn their new land. Through these five vibrant young people, their stories and struggles, and their willingness to open their lives and share them with us, we “learn America.” Watch the trailer at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbW4gytQCiE&feature=youtu.be

Directed by Sam Wood with Joan Fontaine. Ivy.pity the men in her life!  In this Gothic/Film Noir hybrid, Ivy spells chills as a reckless Edwardian beauty with a poisonous hunger for seduction and wealth.  Dazzlingly shot and costumed gaslight melodrama with a “tour de force performance” (NY Times) by its Oscar-winning star.  A forgotten film gem, and Cannes Film Festival entry.
