On Friday, October 10th, at 7:30pm and Sunday, October 12th at 3pm at Sandglass Theater, Eric Bass and Ines Zeller Bass, Brendan Taaffe, Anna Patton, Kirk Murphy and Amanda Maddock share with you the mystique and low-tech charm of pairing song and story with rolling pictures. With the serenade of ballads, stories, comic songs and originally composed music, this exciting team of artists will present an assortment of beautifully handcrafted crankies for your delight and entertainment. Crankies are scrolling illustrations, wound inside a wooden box and then hand-cranked so that the images move across a viewing screen. Once called ‘moving panoramas', crankies were as close as it got to films in the early 19th century. Recently crankies have made a fresh and invigorated appearance throughout the nation, appearing in circuses, music events and yes...puppet theaters.

For many decades, Hollywood's attitude toward Jewish issues was one of reticence, if not neglect. This changed in the late 1960s with the end of the studio system and the emergence of several young writer-directors who displayed confident and complex viewpoints on Jewish identity. I'll discuss the work of four of the best-known of these filmmakers, using clips from several films. Among the subjects covered will be: the Holocaust (Lumet's The Pawnbroker, Mazursky's Enemies, a Love Story, Brooks' The Producers); family life (Mazursky's Next Stop Greenwich Village, Allen's Crimes and Misdemeanors); autobiography (Next Stop Greenwich Village, Allen's Radio Days); politics and culture (Lumet's Daniel , Allen's Annie Hall).
