“The Age of the Image: Wayfinding in a World of Screens”
Oct. 14, 7:30 pm
YouTube link: Stephen Apkon is the author of the critically acclaimed book, The Age of the Image: Redefining Literacy in a World of Screens, and the Founder and Executive Director of The Jacob Burns Film Center, a non-profit film and education organization located in Pleasantville, N.Y. In The Age of the Image, Apkon draws on the history of literacy, on the science of how storytelling works on the human brain, and on the value of literacy in real-world situations. Legendary director Martin Scorsese writes in the Foreword to the book, “The Age of the Image lays out the tools we need to cultivate our awareness of and attention to every message and every gesture... It's not just a plea for literacy, but a wonderful road map and guide for how it can be taught and nurtured.”

Where does voguing come from, and what, exactly, is throwing shade? This landmark documentary provides a vibrant snapshot of the 1980s through the eyes of New York City’s African American and Latinx Harlem drag-ball scene. Made over seven years, Paris Is Burning offers an intimate portrait of rival fashion “houses,” from fierce contests for trophies to house mothers offering sustenance in a world rampant with homophobia, transphobia, racism, AIDS, and poverty. Featuring legendary voguers, drag queens, and trans women—including Willi Ninja, Pepper LaBeija, Dorian Corey, and Venus Xtravaganza—Paris Is Burning brings it, celebrating the joy of movement, the force of eloquence, and the draw of community.
