    CURRENT showing : Media Rewind 1963
    June 4 – December, 2013.  Social and political upheaval dominated the headlines in 1963. Controversy around civil rights, the space program and capital punishment commanded the news. Graphic images of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and the murder of his accused killer Lee Harvey Oswald are indelibly printed in collective memory. Fifty years later, we look back at the powerful images of individuals and events from that tumultuous year. The iconic pictures that filled newspapers, magazines and television screens became source material for Pop artists, and later other artists, who borrowed and manipulated images from popular culture in their works of art.

    8 pm film: Manhattan Short Film Festival ($)

    Ignited by an electric collision of beatboxing, breaking and lyrical flow, How to Break sneaks into a hospital room with a fake ID, a potty mouth, and a bad case of heartsick. A pediatric hematologist, a folk singer, and a nurse with a beatboxing problem try not to screw up two hospitalized teenagers – a b-boy with sickle cell and a fiercely independent dancer with leukemia – learning to live while their bodies are breaking.

    How to Break plays at the ACES ECA Arts Hall, 55 Audubon St, October 3-6. Tickets: www.
