Arts in My Backyard – Bronx – May

Arts In My Backyard, Bronx No Comments

All My Sons by Arthur Miller

Recently on Broadway with a star-studded cast, All My Sons by Arthur Miller is set in a seemingly idyllic small town in Middle America just after World War II. Behind the picket fence is a family struggling with the havoc caused by war, greed and deception. The Keller’s have lost a son to war. Mrs. Keller refuses to accept his death. The other son is having a love affair with his brother’s girlfriend. Mr. Keller was sent to prison for selling defective airplane parts, but was set free even though his partner, the girlfriend’s father, stayed locked up. Like the wind that destroys an apple tree in the Keller’s front yard, the secrets that Miller’s characters keep destroy the bonds between family and friends. The storm that opens the play is only a sprinkle compared to the storm that is unleashed when the truth is told.

Set in the South Bronx of the early 80’s, Flyin’ Cut Sleeves, completed in 1993, portrays street gang presidents in the Bronx. The documentary project grew out of the experiences of Rita Fecher, the film’s co-producer, who taught in a South Bronx school in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, became intimately involved with the gangs, their leaders, and the leaders’ families and began to document their lives. Their world was the streets, set against a backdrop of uprooted families, cultural alienation, drugs and violence.

Doors open @ 6PM and the film screening will take place from 6:30-730PM. A panel discussion will take place immediately following the film where the audience can meet and greet the producers Henry Chalfant and Rita Fecher as well as some members of the original cast.

FREE. An adult must accompany anyone under 16 years of age. Light refreshments will be served. NEA Big Read 2010 “Sun, Stone, and Shadows” books and promotional materials will also be distributed.
