The National Jazz Museum Presents: Jazz on Film
A Cutting Session: Rhythm in Film with Emily Hubley
At the root of cinema is the art of editing; the assemblage of footage in time, which by definition creates its own rhythm. As part of our regular collaboration with the Maysles Cinema, we are proud to present filmmaker Emily Hubley, who has been making animated shorts since 1980. Ms. Hubley worked closely with her parents, pioneer animators Faith and John Hubley, and their classic works utilized music created specifically for the films by Quincy Jones, Benny Carter and Dizzy Gillespie. Ms. Hubley's feature film, The Toe Tactic had its theatrical premiere at the Museum of Modern Art in January 2009 and was released on DVD by Kino International in the fall. Hubley's films are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, Department of Film. She is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Her feature, The Toe Tactic was developed at the Sundance Institute's Screenwriters' and Filmmakers' Labs. In 2001, Hubley's animated segments for Hedwig and The Angry Inch brought her international acclaim. Please join us for an inside look on the intersections of rhythm, jazz and cinema.

We Are You Project/Ragazine Fundraiser  | Open: 02/23/13 Close: 02/23/13
The "We Are You Documentary" examines current Latino culture through the eyes of prominent U.S.-Hispanic visual artists and educators participating in the We Are You Project and/or its traveling art exhibition. Through interviews of various lengths, the subjects share their personal histories, their artistic visions and their sense of place in the American Experience. Not all are citizens; some were born here; others did not come of their own accord, but were children when their parents arrived as wilful immigrants or refugees. Yet, each one has made or found a home in the United States and achieved personal and professional success. The documentary points out that more than 90% of Latinos in the U.S. are here legally, and contribute on a daily basis to take their rightful place in the affairs of the nation.
Ragazine.CC recognizes We Are You Project as an important element in the ongoing multicultural traditions that began with the vision of America's founding fathers and continues to this day. We are pleased to co-host the event, which will help bring to light the many contributions of yet another ethnic wave to reach these shores.
The WAYP documentary is a Jinsing Production.
