“The gods,” the artist said, “pleasure themselves with men by rummaging through their lives, wounding their bodies with their darts of pain, denying man the ability to be near them, yet they still make us love them and feel the thrill of immortality.”
It is the story of life, the metaphor of human pettiness and the reactions linked to them. A journey along the short but intense parabola of an artist painter who finds himself projected (by chance) into a world of lights and lust. Checkpoint Charlie is the limit, the line that not everyone wants to cross, where there is no return except after selling the soul to the devil.
“What is your job?” The artist asked. “Undertaker” he said. Twenty-five years of work, and he’d certainly buried a lot of people. He dug the grave and if necessary, undressed and redressed the body. They pay for everything. “Do the dead stink?” “Yes, a great deal.” “Animals don’t have cemeteries. Why is it that, in your opinion?”
Michele Iacono offers us reasons to reflect, on the limits that the common moral sense imposes. It retraces Italy in its most beautiful cities telling us the limits that some of us have decided or have been forced to face. The Artist presents itself as new air on the American market after its release in Italian under the title Checkpoint Charlie. Published by Hoffmann & Hoffmann and distributed by Ingram.
Rutgers Expert Available to Discuss the Religious Convictions Behind Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Ahead of Tom Hanks-Starring Biopic
New Brunswick, N.J. (Oct. 18, 2019) – Rutgers scholar Louis Benjamin Rolsky is available to discuss the religious and spiritual convictions that infused the life of Fred Rogers and Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. The film A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, starring Tom Hanks as Rogers, is scheduled for release next month.
Rogers, who became an ordained minister in 1963, challenged the culture of his time by addressing topics like divorce, war, and racism in Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. He exemplified an understanding of religion-as-service, and sought its application in American public life and to children’s programming. The episode in which Rogers introduced an African-American police officer, followed by the cooling and washing of feet together in a small pool in the name of friendship and mutual understanding, challenged many racist assumptions at the time and embodied Rogers’ theological commitment to treating others as he would like to be treated. Rogers understood television less as a passive instrument of pure reception, and more as an interactive medium that could shape individuals in real time, especially children, Rolsky said.
In Vino Veritart is a journey through the multi-artistic genius of Roberto Sironi and the poetic sensibility of Mariagrazia Pia. A journey through the world of wine and its love drifts through colors and images imbued with tannic emotions, sometimes tender, sensual and dreamy. It is an original work in a visionary and futuristic artistic form where the talent of the writer is combined with the skill of the painter.
