An Afternoon with James Schamus
Saturday, May 1
1:00 PM Sundance Kabuki Cinemas
1881 Post Street (at Fillmore)
Members $20, general $25


The Film Society proudly presents this year's Kanbar Award for excellence in screenwriting to the inimitable James Schamus. An integral contributor to the American independent film business for more than two decades and a kindred spirit and collaborative partner of director Ang Lee, Schamus is both an award-winning screenwriter and producer who is also a film executive. As a screenwriter Schamus received an Academy Award nomination for his work on Ang Lee's multi-Oscar-winner Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and he has collaborated as writer and producer with Lee on 11 feature films including Taking Woodstock, Lust, Caution, The Ice Storm and The Wedding Banquet. An onstage interview with critic and cultural theorist B. Ruby Rich will be followed by the West Coast premiere of the newly completed director's cut of Ride with the Devil (1999).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Quote
Schamus, Plural and Singular
By Howard A. Rodman

The idea of a unitary Schamus is as ludicrous as the single bullet theory. No lone Schamus could subtend so large an angle. One needs to speak of Schamuses, or, perhaps, Schami. Nabokov once observed that "reality" is a word that only makes sense within inverted commas. Perhaps "Schamus" is a word that only makes sense if it applies equally to the plural. Like "aircraft," "trousers," "eyeglasses" or "fish."

Writer, builder, scholar, producer, family man, chef, public intellectual, mogul, friend-it's a multiplicity of identities rarely seen outside early silent serials (Fantômas, Mabuse) about disguised archfiends. Even his name suggests the plurality: As Wikipedia wryly notes, "Friends, acquaintances and even rivals sometimes refer to him as James James, Schamus Schamus, or Seamus Seamus because his first and last names are etymological cognates."


Quote
James Schamus Selected Filmography
2009       Taking Woodstock
2007       Lust, Caution
2003       Hulk
2000       Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
1999       Ride with the Devil
1997       The Ice Storm
1994       Eat Drink Man Woman

Previous recipients
2009       James Toback
2008       Peter Morgan
2007       Robert Towne
2006       Jean-Claude Carrière
2005       Paul Haggis
-----------------------------------

It's interesting that Howard Rodman's article doesn't mention Brokeback Mountain at all, but it does list Paul Haggis as a previous recipient.

I guess that's because it is a screenwriting award, but I found the article by doing a news search on 'Brokeback'  :D

The Autry

4700 Western Heritage Way , Los Angeles , CA 90027

323.667.2000, www.theAutry.org

 

“Hidden Histories” Discovers Untold Stories

of the Western LGBT Community

The second program in the Out West series at the Autry

 

Thursday, May 13, 2010

7:00-9:00 p.m. Free with museum admission

 

 

Los Angeles, CA (April 23, 2010)—Discover the untold stories of the Western LGBT community on this progressive gallery tour as scholars and Autry curators tell the hidden stories behind some of the objects on display. The Autry’s second program in its Out West series delves into uncharted territory highlighting accounts of individuals who lived gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender lives from the 1800s to modern times in the American West. With this step, the Autry boldly adds the overlooked stories of the western LGBT community as yet another dimension of multicultural convergence in the scholarship of Western American history.

 

Objects on the gallery tour include Elizabeth Bacon Custer’s day dress from the 1870s, the Concord mail stagecoach from 1855, a post office letter box, cowboy gear, and other objects bearing stories related to the LGBT experience in the American West.

 

“With Hidden Histories, the Autry National Center weaves the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community into the rich tapestry of the American West,” said GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios. “It is so important for Americans to hear stories that reflect the diversity of the LGBT community and our presence throughout our nation’s great history. GLAAD is proud to endorse Out West.”

 

The Out West series is under the direction of Stephen Aron , professor of history at UCLA and executive director of the Institute for the Study of the American West at the Autry. Blake Allmendinger, a professor in the English Department at UCLA who specializes in teaching the literature of the American West, will provide the context for the evening in a keynote address. Leading the tour groups will be Jim Wilke, independent scholar and curator; Patricia Nell Warren, renowned Western historian and author of eight books, including The Front Runner; Carolyn Brucken , the Autry’s Associate Curator of Western Women’s History; and Jeffrey Richardson , the Autry’s Assistant Curator of Film and Popular Culture.

 

“The words ‘homosexuality’ and ‘heterosexuality’ did not commonly exist a hundred years ago, and we must take great care to be judicious as we consider the Autry artifacts from their own historical context. Scholarship on the contributions of the LGBT community to the history and culture of the American West is relatively new. Nevertheless, we were there, and with Out West—here we are. It’s our history, too,” noted Gregory Hinton, creator and producer of the Out West series.

 

 

Hidden Histories

Thursday, May 13, 2010

7:00–9:00 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Complimentary refreshments to be served, with dinner available for purchase. Cash bar.

About the Out West Series

Having marked the first formal public recognition of the contributions of the LGBT community to Western American history by a major American museum with the installation of the iconic Brokeback Mountain shirts in its Imagination Gallery, the Autry delves deeper into the subject matter by hosting Out West, a series of four programs over a 12-month period. Assembled at each event will be Western scholars, authors, artists, politicians, musicians, and friends of Western LGBT people. The first event, a panel discussion titled “What Ever Happened to Ennis del Mar?” took place on December 13, 2009.

 

Conceived by Gregory Hinton, consulting producer for the series, Out West was inspired not only by the Autry’s recent installation of the iconic shirts worn by Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in Brokeback Mountain but also by the permanent inclusion of the International Gay Rodeo Association’s (IGRA) archives into the Autry Library (both facilitated by Hinton). Mrs. Gene Autry presided over a launch event on August 11, 2009, celebrating the loan of the shirts from collector Tom Gregory, who purchased them at a charity auction and shared Hinton’s vision for using them toward a greater good. At the installation of the iconic shirts, the Autry National Center ’s President and CEO John Gray said, “The American West is a place for all of us, and all of us have a place in the West.”

 

The Out West series at the Autry National Center is made possible through the generous support of Tom Gregory, HBO, the Gill Foundation, and the Small Change Foundation, in association with the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), and the Courage Campaign.

The Oklahoma City Museum of Art explores the underappreciated role of costume designers in Hollywood history

Sketch to Screen: The Art of Hollywood Costume Design
Opening Thursday
On display through Aug. 15
Oklahoma City Museum of Art
415 Couch
www.okcmoa.com
236-3100
$10-$12

Despite being cast in every important scene and center-framed during every iconic movie moment, costume design often remains hidden in plain sight.

It’s a bit of a paradox, said Brian Hearn, Oklahoma City Museum of Art film curator. “You really notice it when it’s bad or when it’s really good, but a lot of times, it’s successful when it’s sort of seamless.”

In Hollywood, however, clothes don’t just drape the actor — they make the character. Surveying the entire range of American cinema, OKCMOA has compiled a collection of more than 85 original garments and accessories that explore the art of making movie garments, and the historical role costume designers have played in shaping the look of films.

The result is the exhibit “Sketch to Screen: The Art of Hollywood Costume Design.” Many of the featured costumes are identifiable by even casual cinephiles. The collection ranges from Jean Harlow’s cream satin evening gown from 1933’s “Bombshell,” to Mary Pickford’s tattered blue dress from the 1922 silent film “Tess of the Storm Country.” Oscar-winning designs include the John Truscott-created hooded cape worn by Vanessa Redgrave in “Camelot” and Bette Davis’ complete “Death of the Nile” pink-beaded outfit designed by Anthony Powell.

Men’s film fashion also plays a big part in the exhibit. Heath Ledger’s “Brokeback Mountain” getup is featured along with Robert DeNiro’s leopard-print robe and boxing shorts from “Raging Bull,” and the “Gladiator” garb donned by Russell Crowe in 2000.
