Selknam: Look Back to Look Forward
Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art – Artist-in-residence Elisa Pritzker’s solo exhibition “Selknam: Spirit, Ceremony, Selves” has been extended through September 30th, 2017. The installation, which gives voice to the Selknam tribe of Tierra del Fuego, extinct since the 1950’s, has caused a sensation in the artistic and academic community. Ms. Pritzker’s work has created such a stir that she has been asked to bring her work to a gallery in Argentina. The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (HVCCA) is extending the exhibition to give local schools a chance for a visit in the fall. In addition, Ms. Pritzker will give an artist talk on September 24th at 3pm at HVCCA. “Selknam: Look Back to Look Forward” will discuss the history of the Selknam people, their historic relevance today and how they inspired and directed her art and installation. Said Pritzker: “A gallery talk influences both the artist and the attendees. I like to face the unexpected questions. These allow me to comprehend angles of my work that I was not consciously aware of. I am always thankful to have this opportunity.” Ten years ago when Pritzker visited Patagonia, she felt an urgency to discover the people who had lived in Tierra del Fuego “before all the tourists came, speaking all different languages, from many cultures,” except for that of the Selknam, whose voices were gone. Pritzker began an in-depth study of the Selknam Tribe, using source materials from anthropologists and photographers, as well as learning to use their techniques for creating color and design. After intensive research, Pritzker realized how much the ancient cultures and traditions had to teach, and her solo show at HVCCA brings the viewer – stone by stone – into the Selknam realm. Elisa Pritzker, born in Argentina, now lives in upstate New York. Her work has appeared in exhibitions and museums worldwide.

Movie Night: “Becoming Truly Human”
St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary – Grab a bag of popcorn: it’s movie night on our campus, Sunday, September 24, 7 o’clock. We’ll be screening Becoming Truly Human, a fascinating documentary that explores the rise of the “Nones,” i.e., those who check “none of the above” on religion surveys. Multiple research groups report that the number of Nones had risen from roughly 6% of the U.S. population in the 1990s to 25% as of 2015. However, little research existed on this growing demographic—until now. The film offers a cinematic portrait of eight Nones, each of whom shares his or her journey from religious affiliation to religious non-affiliation. The film hears from the Nones, both individually and as a group, as they share views about religion, God, the afterlife, and much more, thus offering a rare opportunity to listen in on a conversation that most religious adherents would never be invited into. (Teaser: one of the Nones, Basil, shares how his quest for spiritual wholeness ultimately leads him from religious non-affiliation to another level of spirituality.) On hand for the screening will be writer/director Dr. Nathan Jacobs. Jacobs is president of 5 SEES, one of the production companies involved with the film. Vice President of 5 SEES, Sarah Werner, will also be present at the showing. “Our research has found that because Nones are outside of religious circles, they rarely voice their thoughts on religion or even have the opportunity to do so,” said Jacobs. “It’s a powerful experience for these Nones to hear what others are thinking and know they are not alone.” Becoming Truly Human is the first feature film about America’s religiously unaffiliated, and North America’s first Orthodox Christian feature film. The film will begin its semi-theatrical release on August 22 via TheatriCast with marketing and promotion by Aspiration Studios. Freestyle Digital Media will handle the digital release of the film (Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and so forth), beginning September 2017. DVD and Bluray sales will be handled by Ancient Faith, beginning October 2017.
