Step off campus and explore near and far this weekend.
New York in Film at The Museum Of the Moving Image
36-01 35th Ave.
Looking around New York City, one notices that everything is remarkable and memorable. Filmmakers have long recognized this by capturing the New York narrative and now have their work displayed for the public to admire. Some of this weekend’s highlights are Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window” and Lionel Rogosin’s epic documentary “On The Bowery.” A short trip out to Astoria will be an excuse to venture out of the Village. Tickets are $9 with a student ID.
Noam Chomsky has accumulated an impressive resume as a linguist, philosopher, cognitive scientist, activist, creator of the Chomsky hierarchy, the Universal Grammar theory and so much more. Chomsky will lead a discussion on the pervasive nature of American foreign policy. Admission is free but an RSVP is required. Although the event is at full capacity, there will be a live stream for those still wanting to hear the words of Chomsky.
