Lifelong University Course - On the Beach: The Failed French Colonies of Brazil and Florida, 1550-1580
Monday, October 11, 2021 - 10:00 am
As a result of the 16th century religious wars in France, French Protestants found a place of refuge in the New World. While destroyed by Spain, those colonies left a legacy: detailed information about the indigenous people they encountered, striking art and the founding of the first European settlement in North America.
Join us, if you dare, for a big scare on the big screen! We'll have plenty of popcorn & soda, but chew with your mouth closed because (SPOILER ALERT) if you make ANY sound, the monsters..... oh, never mind ....
Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.
Join UNI Museum for an opening reception for their latest exhibit Whose Voice? Remarks will be given at 4:15 p.m.
Despite claims of neutrality, museums cannot deny how their colonial past has shaped their collecting and exhibiting practices. Whose Voice asks visitors to question who has the authority to be telling the stories of Indigenous cultures and how these stories are presented to the public.
Perpetrator Representation in Claude Lanzmann's Shoah and its Outtakes
Monday, October 11, 2021 - 7:00 pm
In this moderated discussion, Professor Erin McGlothlin will explore part of Claude Lanzmann’s monumental documentary Shoah (1985), a nine- and-a-half-hour film that features interviews Lanzmann conducted with Holocaust survivors, witnesses, and perpetrators. McGlothlin will focus on one of Lanzmann’s most fascinating (and most troubling) interviews in Shoah, namely the director’s dialogue with Franz Suchomel, a former guard of the Treblinka killing center. Based on her recent research, McGlothlin will discuss not only the moments of the Suchomel interview that appear in Shoah, but also sections of the hundreds of hours of the film’s outtake footage that has been restored and digitized by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC and Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Israel. By carefully comparing the outtakes of Lanzmann’s interview with Suchomel with the sequences in Shoah that feature his testimony, McGlothlin is able to reconstruct in minute detail how the film director shaped the testimony of the apparently unrepentant and even gleeful former perpetrator whom we encounter in the finished film.
