15th Annual Winter Lecture Series:
Louis Benech: The Graceful Garden [link]
Botanical Gardens, Bronx
Renowned landscape designer Louis Benech has carried out some 300 park and garden projects around the world. In this lively presentation, he shares his approach to garden creation and restoration, which combines French formalism with a loose naturalism, in designs coaxed almost intuitively from the existing landscape. While focused on projects in his native France—including his spectacular and celebrated reimagining of Louis XIV's four-acre Water Theater grove at Versailles—examples will also include some of Benech's designs for private homes in the U.S., all with a distinctly French touch.

Movie: She's Beautiful When She's Angry [link]
Irvington Town Hall Theater
SHE'S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE'S ANGRY resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women's movement from 1966 to 1971. The film does not shy away from the controversies over race, sexual identity and leadership that arose in the women's movement. SHE'S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE'S ANGRY captures the spirit of the time -- thrilling, scandalous, and often hilarious.
