There are so many interesting events and resources at Yale. The ones listed here have been selected with teachers in mind by our Office of New Haven Affairs team. We are currently focusing on New Haven history, social justice, and arts & humanities. All events are free and open to the public, but some require registration.
If you have other ideas, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Month’s Featured Event
Join us for a talk with Peruvian writer-director, Alonso Llosa, about the benefits and challenges of independent filmmaking in Latin America and the role of government funding in producing movies. Alonso will also discuss his film La Restauración which will be screened as part of Yale‘s Latino & Iberian Film Festival (LIFFY) the first weekend of November!
Medium Cool (Haskell Wexler, 1969, 35mm, 111 mins). Robert Forster stars as a TV news cameraman at Chicago’s 1968 Democratic National Convention in what Vincent Canby called “a film of tremendous visual impact, a kind of cinematic Guernica, a picture of America in the process of exploding into fragmented bits of hostility, suspicion, fear, and violence.” 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive. The “Art & Protest” film series is presented by the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library and the Yale Film Archive in conjunction with the exhibition “Art, Protest, & the Archives” on view at the Beinecke through January 7, 2024. Free and open to the public.
