    Playing Through, a new film about the legendary golfer Ann Gregory. The screening will be shared via live-stream from the Martha’s Vineyard African-American Film Festival (MVAAFF) on Monday, August 8th at 5pm ET (2pm PT), where we'll be joined by the film's screenwriter and former Princeton rowing coach, Curtis Jordan, along with the film's two leads, Andia Winslow who plays Gregory and was herself a pro golfer, and co-star, Julia Rae who stars as Gregory’s opponent, Babs. 

    (On August 16, join us for a lively virtual panel discussion with Jordan, Winslow, and Rae who will discuss the process of creating a film in the midst of a pandemic and stretching the bounds of their diverse creative and professional skill sets to telling Ann Gregory’s story.)

  • Harvardwood Suggests... 43RD NAGASAKI JAPAN PEACE EXHIBITION

    Tuesday, August 09, 2022 at 12:00 PM - JST through August 16, 2022
    NAGASAKI PREFECTURAL ART MUSEUM in Nagasaki, Japan

    For 42 years the City of Nagasaki in Japan has hosted a PEACE EXHIBITION.  It is an exciting World-class exhibition held at the Nagasaki Prefectural Art Museum. Harvardwood fine artist and a strong advocate for peace, Janai-Ami,  will have two works included in the show. Both of the pieces are from her Pandemic Series, and neither have been shown previously elsewhere.  The works are both oil on canvas.  One is titled "MODERNA" and the other "PRAYING FOR AI-FEN." The characteristics of this period of the artist's work are symbolic crowns (standing in for 'corona') and bubbles (symbolizing the viral capsules); as well as the characteristic graphs that were a frequent accompaniment to the nightly news in the USA for well over a year. The works from this period are distinctly different from the artist's contemporary florals for which she is known, but it is interesting to see what a different path the pandemic led her down as it did with so many artists.  "PRAYING FOR AI-FEN" is on loan from a private collection for this Exhibition.

  • Master Classes are in-depth, interactive learning experiences focused on craft and career-building and led by renowned industry experts. Topics include fiction and documentary filmmaking, TV writing and production, and navigating and succeeding in the entertainment industry.

    Music and sound design are two of the most powerful tools for filmmakers to tell their stories.

    Join Glenn Kiser, Director of the Dolby Institute, and accomplished composer, Peter Golub, who will moderate a conversation with Everything Everywhere All At Once directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, re-recording mixer and supervising sound editor, Brent Kiser, sound designer and sound effects editor, Andrew Twite, and Ryan Lott, Rafiq Bhatia and Ian Chang, the three members of the band, Son Lux, who composed the original, spellbinding score. In this live, interactive session, they'll discuss the process by which composers and sound designers can build the world with the filmmaker and be an essential part of shaping a film’s story.

    Past classes have included Academy Award-winning director Roger Ross Williams on Documentary Storytelling, Finding Dory’s Victoria Strouse on Comedy Writing, Emmy-nominated director Lesli Linka Glatter on Blocking a Scene, The Walking Dead’s Glen Mazzara on TV Writing, and more.
