Re: “Iris” screening for those who are NOT attending tonight

Hi Class,
If you were unable to get a ticket for tonight’s performance, you need to go see the film “Iris” before our next Wed. class. The film is screening multiple times a day until May 12th.I will post the blog post topic tomorrow for “Iris”. We will briefly discuss the film in class. Save your ticket stub to show me proof that you attended if you didn’t go tonight. For next week I would like you to bring in your thesis ideas for your final research paper. I will post a blog post about this by tomorrow.
We will finish screening the powerpoint/prezi’s next Wednesday.

PS. The post I put up re “Shadows” was a mistake. I have taken it down. It was for my other class. I have removed it. You don’t need to post about it.
Thanks, Prof. Jacobson

To me I thought it was one of those movies that is about racism. My reaction is that I knew it was going to be a romance but a situation between the race of black and white. When I started to see that their was a romance going on I thought it was going to be a life situation between the family of the two brothers and a sister. Then when I saw the sister wanted to introduce her boyfriend to her brother, his reaction and mood change. The film was showing how New York City was in 1950s. I think the director had a good set of mood of how New York life was and how people treat and behave. This was also after World War II when people were celebrating, happy, but still on the racism. I guess maybe the director wants to see the reaction on how people reacts ob the film that it sets on the mood between two different race.

RE: Buy your ticket directly from Film Forum website (link is below)

Hi Class,

I have written several emails and blog posts that we are going to a screening at Film Forum of feature documentary of “Iris” this coming Wed at 6:20 screening. As of now you will have to buy tickets individually on-line on the Film Forum website in advance. I cannot buy more directly on my credit card. See link below and purchase your own ticket. You will need a debit or credit card and to register on their website with your information before the website allows you to purchase the ticket. You must be there at 5:45 pm for me to take attendance.

According to their rep if you don’t buy the tickets in advance on-line it will probably be sold out by the day of the performance. I have purchased tickets for those who have confirmed though posting on the blog. (List of confirmed attendees: Jessica Gonzalez, Christine Brosnan, Neil Nemoto, Mike Cruz, Bryant Rivallas, Nicholas Samaniego, Stephen Moyano)  Please bring $14 to Film Forum  to reimburse me for me to give the tickets I’ve prepaid.

Re: Wed. April 29th, Film Forum Screening

Hi Class,

I posted a post earlier today which was an error. It was for my Friday class. Ignore it. I’ve erased the post.

Meanwhile, I have changed the trip we are making next week. Instead we are booked to go to the Opening Night screening of a new documentary “Iris” an exciting feature documentary about an NYC fashion style icon, which is screening at Film Forum. You must be at the theater at 5:30. I have blocked thirty tickets which I have had to pay for IN ADVANCE OUT OF MY OWN POCKET. The tickets are $13 per person. This is a lot of money that I’ve had to front (almost $400 dollars!) Since we don’t meet this week, you will need to bring me the exact amount on the date of the screening. It is IMPERATIVE that if you cannot attend that you let me know by this Friday, so I can take this into account when I have to pay the group sales amount.
