The exhibition, first presented in 1975 at George Eastman House, signaled the emergence of a new approach to landscape photography. As evidence of its influence, it is considered the second most-cited photography exhibition in history. A new version of this seminal exhibition, organized for international tour with the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona, will re-examine more than 100 works from the 1975 show, as well as some 30 prints and books by other relevant artists to provide additional historical and contemporary context. This reconsideration demonstrates both the historical significance of these pictures and their continued relevance today. After its Eastman House display, New Topographics will travel to eight international venues. New Topographics is made possible by a generous grant from the Terra Foundation for American Art. Nature as Artifice: New Dutch Landscape in Photography and Video Art opens today, on view through Aug. 16, 2009. "Dutch landscape" evokes an immediate mental picture of the idyllic agrarian landscape rooted in the tradition of Dutch landscape painting, but today the Netherlands is known for its planned, manipulated landscape and nature. Since the end of the 1980s, a number of Dutch photographers and filmmakers have been taking exactly this artificial character of the Dutch landscape and nature as their point of departure. This exhibition, curated by Maartje van den Heuvel, presents work by several contemporary photographers. Nature as Artifice is made possible through generous support from the Mondriaan Foundation. 14   3 to 4 p.m. Sunday MUSICALE Join us on select Sunday's when music fills George Eastman's home.

JAMES STEWART & ANTHONY MANN-FIVE REVENGE WESTERNS While legendary movie star James Stewart is probably better known for the three films he made with director Frank Capra, and the four he appeared in for Alfred Hitchock, Stewart enjoyed an equally fruitful collaboration with the enormously talented yet frequently neglected Anthony Mann. They worked on eight features altogether, but it is their quintet of Westerns made in the first half of the 1950's that helped redefine Stewart's image, and provided the basis for Mann's considerable reputation among film critics, first in Europe, then domestically. Box office successes all, these Westerns have been celebrated for their gorgeous location cinematography, supercharged action sequences, and a willingness to explore adult themes and psychological complexities, as evidenced by the five different variations Stewart offers on neurotic, vengeance-obsessed hero. In their groundbreaking collaboration Winchester '73 (June 2), Stewart plays what seems to an overly driven man tracking down a murderous criminal who stole his prized rifle. When the villain's identity and victims are ultimately revealed, the viewer is forced to seriously reconsider the hero's quest. In the follow-up bend of the rive (June 9), only a few actions separate Stewart's protagonist from Arthur Kennedy's charming antagonist. Both men have similar violent pasts as they square off in a plot involving vigilante lynching and the rescue of beleaguered Oregon settlers. The Naked Spur (June 16) features Stewart as an unhinged man determined to bring back his lost home by using the reward he'll receive from brining in a wanted killer (Robert Ryan). The hero's actions are determined by his past and a blinding desire to return to how things once were. His angry, destructive behavior toward the villain only serves to underline how little difference there is between the bounty hunter and his bounty. Unlike The Far Country (June 23) doesn't feature the typical Mann-Stewart antagonist who represents Stewart's alter ego. While Stewart's character does have a shady history, his opposite is a thoroughly rotten Judge Roy Bean type and his cattle their played wonderfully by John McIntire. The final film in the series, and the first to be filmed in wide-screen CinemaScopeTM, is The Man from Larmie (June 30). Stewart seems revenge on the men responsible for his brothers' death, but he does so without a sense of guilt and with a clear, moral purpose. Mann saves the complex psychological dilemmas for the villains: a corrupt and powerful land baron (Donald Crisp) and his two sons (Alex Nicol and Arthur Kennedy) as fresh and exciting as when they were first produced, don't miss your chance to see these five masterpieces of pop cinema in new 35mm prints on the big screen. QUINTESSENTIAL NEOREALISM: FOUR BY VITTORIO DE SICA Emotionally heartbreaking and deceptively simple, the films of director Vittorio De Sica have come to be the most universally loved and most emblematic of the hugely influential Italian film movement known as neorealismo or neorealism. DeSica was a dashingly handsome, talented, and enormously popular leading actor, particularly for his work in the lighthearted Italian "white telephone" romantic comedies of the 1930s. Like many of his film industry colleagues, the many injustices that arose out of the devastation of fascism and World War II brought De Sica's conscience to an entirely different level, and he turned to directing in order to expose the problems of society. Because of destroyed studio space, the neorealist films made the most out of actual Italian locations, and almost exclusively utilized nonprofessional actors. Often through humorous observation, De Sica captured his performers at their naturalistic best. His completed works of art spoke so movingly and urgently of a troubled population that they almost simultaneously found devoted audiences all over the world. On each Thursday in June, we'll bring you one of De Sica's most important masterworks, all written or co-written by the director's most important collaborator, scenarist Cesare Zavattini. Shot in the days immediately following Italy's liberation from fascism, Shoeshine (June 4) details the friendship of two homeless boys who make their living shining shoes for American GIs. Perhaps the most important and devastating of all neorealist films, The Bicycle Thief (June 11), in which a poster hanger and his adorable son search the streets of Rome for the stolen bicycle that is essential to their survival, is quite simply unforgettable. As shattering as The Bicycle Thief in its own way, Umberto D (June 18) tells the story of a retired bureaucrat who finds himself broke and homeless on the heartless streets of Rome with his little dog, Flike. Nonprofessional actor Carlo Battisti, a real-life Florentine professor, is a revelation as the title character, as is his animal companion. A later and unjustly neglected De Sica-Zavattini gem is The Roof (June 25), the heartwarming story of poor newlyweds who search for a home in crowded postwar Rome. The filmmakers deliver another memorable finale in which the protagonists race against time to finish construction on a squatter's shack. It is impossible not to be moved by these masterfully told works. -Jim Healy, Assistant Curator, Exhibitions, Motion Picture Department JUNE 2009 FILMS: 1 MON | 1:30 p.m. | Senior Matinee (free to those 60 and over) PAT AND MIKE (George Cukor, US 1952, 95 min.) 2 TUES | 8 p.m. | Mann & Stewart WINCHESTER '73 (Anthony Mann, US 1950, 92 min.) In the first of his five adult-themed Westerns for expert genre director Anthony Mann, James Stewart plays a revenge-obsessed hero tracking down his criminal brother (Stephen McNally) who killed their father and also stole the prized title rifle. The film intercuts Stewart's suspenseful quest with the story of the gun, which changes owners several times. The supporting cast includes Dan Duryea, Rock Hudson, Shelley Winters, John McIntire, and Tony Curtis. 3 WED | 7 p.m. | Spaceships & Aliens THE THING (FROM ANOTHER WORLD) (Christian Nyby, US 1951, 87 min.) When a flying saucer lands near a remote scientific outpost at the North Pole, a hardy band of men (and one plucky woman) must band together to save the world. The Thing uses light and shadow and numerous shots of corridors and tight spaces to paint an eerie portrait of dread, confusion, and terror. 4 THURS | 8 p.m. | De Sica SHOESHINE (SCIUSCIÀ, Vittorio De Sica, Italy 1946, 93 min., Italian/subtitles) DeSica's neorealist classic details the friendship of two homeless boys who make their living shining shoes for American GIs in Italy in the days immediately following the country's liberation from fascism. By using non-professional actors and a naturalistic style, the director indicts the indifference of humanity to the needs of others. Shoeshine won an Honorary Oscar® for its high quality, and led to the creation of the category of Best Foreign Language Film. 5 FRI | Spaceships & Aliens | Godzilla Double Feature! 7 p.m. GODZILLA VS. KING GHIDORAH (GOJIRA VS. KINGU GIDORÂ, Kazuki Omori, Japan 1991, 100 min., Japanese/subtitles) 9 p.m. GODZILLA 2000 (GOJIRA NI-SEN MIRENIAMU, Takao Okawara, Japan 1999, 99 min.) In the first of these two Godzilla films with an intergalactic bent, travelers from the future warn Japan that if Godzilla isn't neutralized, the fate of the country is doomed. The plan backfires and King Ghidorah, a three-headed dragon from outer space, is unexpectedly unleashed! Next, follow Tokyo's favorite big green monster as he tries to destroy Japan's nuclear reactors and power plants while battling an alien spaceship that morphs into a gargantuan beast named Orga. Two films for one admission price. 6 SAT | 7 p.m. | Special Presentation | New 35MM Print! PART I (IVAN GROZNYY I, Sergei Eisenstein, Soviet Union 1944, 96 min., Russian/subtitles) PART II (IVAN GROZNYY II: BOYARSKY ZAGOVOR, Sergei Eisenstein, Soviet Union 1958, 90 min, Russian/subtitles) The life of Russia's first Czar was the final project for Sergei Eisenstein, one of the world's most influential filmmakers. Nikolai Cherkassov stars as the eponymous ruler, and Eisenstein's epic spans from Ivan's opulent coronation at age 16 in 1546 to his long and bitter campaign to seize Kazan, to his near fatal illness and return to health; and concludes with his consolidation of power in opposition to the boyars. Eisenstein's command of light and shadow allows the fascinating political intrigue to play out in a series of dynamic, eye-filling scenes. The spectacularly ornate set design and costumes, along with a performance style influenced by Russian classicism, grand opera, and Kabuki Theater, as well as a magisterial score by Sergei Prokofiev, make the complete Ivan one of the greatest masterpieces ever produced in cinema. 7 SAT | Spaceships & Aliens | Godzilla Double Feature! 2 p.m. GODZILLA VS. KING GHIDORAH 4 p.m. GODZILLA 2000 Two films for one admission price. See June 5. 7 SUN | 7 p.m. IVAN THE TERRIBLE PARTS I AND II Two films for one admission price. See June 5 8 MON | 1:30 p.m. | Senior Matinee (free to those 60 and over) HIGH SIERRA (Raoul Walsh, US 1941, 100 min.) 9 TUES | 8 p.m. | Mann & Stewart BEND THE RIVER (Anthony Mann, US 1952, 91 min.) In the most underrated of his Western collaborations with director Anthony Mann, James Stewart plays a former Missouri border raider trying to go straight who saves a man (Arthur Kennedy) from a vigilante lynching. Each with a violent past, the two eventually find themselves on opposite sides when Kennedy double-crosses Stewart by absconding with food supplies Stewart has promised to deliver to Oregon settlers. The lovely color cinematography by Irving Glassberg makes the most of the stunning locations. 10 WED | 8 p.m. | Spaceships & Aliens THIS ISLAND EARTH (Joseph Newman, US 1955, 86 min.) Large-brained aliens from the planet Metaluna descend to Earth in order to recruit our planet's top scientists to help save their dying world. The aliens' real plan: take over the Earth! Glorious color landscapes and visionary production and creature design have earned this genre classic a devoted cult following, and it's great fun, too! 11 THURS | 8 p.m. | De Sica THE BICYCLE THIEF (STELLET LICHT, Carlos Reygadas, Mexico 2007, 127 min., Plautdietsch/subtitles) This visually ravishing drama allows audiences a rare glimpse into the very private lives of a community of Mennonites outside Chihuahua, Mexico. Cast with non-professional Mennonite actors speaking a German derivative dialect, the story revolves around the crisis of a married farmer who tries to maintain the stability of his family while openly having an affair with another woman. A transcendent, poetic experience, Silent Light is the third feature from Mexican director Reygadas, and his first masterpiece. 12 FRI | 8 & 9:30 p.m. | Spaceships & Aliens | George Pal WAR OF THE WORLDS - New 35MM Print! (Byron Haskin, US 1953, 85 min.) CONQUEST OF SPACE (Byron Haskin, US 19535, 80 min.) War of the Worlds, the first of these two vintage sci-fi gems from legendary fantasy producer George Pal and genre veteran Byron Haskin, remains the definitive screen adaptation of H.G. Wells's classic novel about visitors from Mars with not-so-good intentions. Then, in Conquest of Space, the first space voyage to Mars is placed in jeopardy by the religious beliefs of the Captain! Two films for one admission price. 13 SAT | 8 p.m. | Rochester Premiere BIG MAN JAPAN (DAI-NIPPONJIN, Hitoshi Matsumoto, Japan 2007, 113 min., Japanese/subtitles) In a funny and action-packed variation on Godzilla and other Japanese monster movies, writer-director Hitoshi Matsumoto also stars as a modest, lonely man who occasionally transforms himself into a 100-foot-tall, thong-wearing giant who battles equally big monsters in downtown Tokyo. The beleaguered superhero finds himself increasingly out of favor with a fickle public who blame Big Man Japan for the destruction of city property. Told in a faux-documentary style, the satire also serves as an attack on contemporary media and reality television. 14 SUN | 7 p.m. | Rochester Premiere BIG MAN JAPAN See June 13. 16 TUES | 8 p.m. | Mann & Stewart THE NAKED SPUR (Anthony Mann, US 1953, 91 min.) James Stewart is a hard-bitten man determined to buy back his lost land with the bounty he'll receive by capturing a killer (a quintessential Robert Ryan villain), who's on the run with his girlfriend (Janet Leigh). When Stewart catches up with the pair, he finds that it's actually his new bounty-hunting partners (Ralph Meeker and Millard Mitchell) who are the ones not to be trusted. As the gorgeous Rocky Mountains backdrop becomes more turbulent, director Mann ratchets up the tension between the characters, climaxing with some of the most exciting gunplay ever captured on film. Members admitted free. 17 WED | 7 p.m. | Spaceships & Aliens | Double Feature 7 p.m. PLANET OF THE VAMPIRES 8:30 p.m. WAR BETWEEN THE PLANETS (IL PIANETA ERRANTE, Antonio Margheriti, Italy 1966, 80 min.) Planet of the Vampires, the first of this double dose of ultra-stylish mid-'60s "spaghetti sci-fi" from Italy, tells of two spaceships sent to investigate a mysterious planet. Both crews fall prey to a hypnosis that brings on homicidal urges. Atmospheric in the best Bava (Black Sunday) tradition, the twist ending will blow your mind. In the über-cheesy War Between the Planets, scientists try to prevent a collision between Earth and another planet. The basement-budget special effects include toy rockets and lots of visible wires. Two films for one admission price. 18 | THURS | De Sica UMBERTO D (Vittorio De Sica, Italy 1952, 91 min., Italian/subtitles) As emotionally devastating in its own way as De Sica's The Bicycle Thief, this neorealist classic tells the story of a retired bureaucrat who finds himself broke and homeless on the heartless streets of Rome with his little dog, Flike. Nonprofessional actor Carlo Battisti, a real-life Florentine professor, is a revelation as the title character, as is his animal companion. It is impossible not to be moved by this masterfully told story. 19 FRI | SPECIAL PRESENTATION UNBURIED TREASURES: THE SELZNICK SCHOOL PRESERVATIONS Established at George Eastman House in 1996, The L. Jeffrey Selznick School of Film Preservation continues to produce worldwide leaders in the field of film restoration and preservation. In celebration of the Selznick School Class of 2009 graduation, we are proud to present this program of short films from the Eastman House vaults. This eclectic and fun program includes complete short films like Georges Melies' Les Fromages Automobile (1907) and The Old Family Toothbrush (1925); a Technicolor test for The Black Pirate (1926) featuring Mary Pickford; original screen tests for Gone With the Wind; a Red Cross promotional film featuring Ingrid Bergman, and more. Live piano by Philip C. Carli. 20 SAT | 8 p.m. | Rochester Premiere HARVARD BEATS YALE 29-29 (Kevin Rafferty US 2008, 106 min., Digital Projection) Late in the eventful year of 1968, Ivy League football teams Harvard and Yale, both undefeated that season, met in Cambridge for one of the most famous games in history. This extraordinary retelling uses rare footage of the wildly unpredictable match and is told exclusively by the original players, including Harvard's offensive lineman, Tommy Lee Jones. More than just football, the Harvard vs. Yale game, in retrospect, was a major cultural and political event that somehow involved the Vietnam War, the beginnings of the comic strip Doonesbury, both presidential candidates from the 2000 election, and even Meryl Streep! 21 SUN | 2 & 3:30p.m. | Spaceships & Aliens Father's Day Double Feature 2 p.m. EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS (Fred F. Sears, US 1956, 82 min.) 3:30 p.m. 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH (Nathan Juran, US 1957, 82 min.) The spectacular and groundbreaking stop-motion effects of Ray Harryhausen highlight this double feature of classic 1950s sci-fi. In Earth Vs. the Flying Saucers, an all-out alien offensive against Earth culminates in the spectacular destruction of Washington monuments. 20 Million Miles to Earth is Harryhausen's personal twist on King Kong: a frightened Venusian monster crash lands in Sicily and creates a path of destruction north that climaxes in the Roman Colosseum. Two films for one admission price. 21 SUN | 7 p.m. | Rochester Premiere HARVARD BEATS YALE 29-29 (See June 20) 22 MON | 1:30 p.m. | Senior Matinee ANNA KARENINA (Clarence Brown, US 1935, 94 min.) 23 TUES | 8 p.m. | Mann & Stewart THE FAR COUNTRY (Anthony Mann, US 1955, 97 min.) After killing a man for stealing his cattle, James Stewart takes his herd to Alaska with the law on his tail. With the help of Walter Brennan, Stewart faces off in a mining town against a powerful but evil judge (John McIntire). The Far Country-with its vengeful, conflicted hero, violent action, and beautiful but rugged landscapes-is very much of a piece with the other Western collaborations between director Mann and Stewart. 24 WED | 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. | Spaceships & Aliens THE LAST STARFIGHTER (Nick Castle, US 1984, 100 min.) Alex, a video game whiz (Lance Guest) doesn't realize that the Starfighter arcade machine he's just mastered is the tool of an intergalactic recruiter (Robert Preston) looking for skilled warriors to defend his planet from invaders. Conscripted into real-life space battle, Alex teams with the alien Grig (Dan O'Herlihy) to fight off the marauders. The clever premise and excellent special effects in this '80s cult favorite keep it fun even today. 25 THURS | 8 p.m. | De Sica THE ROOF (IL TETTO, Vittorio De Sica, Italy 1956, 98 min., Italian/subtitles) This rarely shown gem from director De Sica and writer Cesare Zavattini, collaborators on The Bicycle Thief and Umberto D, is a heartwarming story about a pair of poor newlyweds who search for a home in a crowded postwar Rome. Using their patented neorealist approach, the filmmakers deliver another memorable finale in which the protagonists race against time to finish construction on a squatter's shack. 26 FRI | 8 p.m. | Rochester Premiere ANVIL! THE STORY OF ANVIL (Sacha Gervasi, US 2008, 90 min.) A real-life Spinal Tap, this hilarious and surprisingly touching new documentary takes us on the road for a reunion tour with Toronto-based heavy metal legends Anvil. "The Demi-Gods of Canadian Metal" were briefly a musical force to be reckoned with, and their 1982 album, Metal on Metal, influenced countless bands from Metallica to Anthrax. Now, they're even having trouble collecting their pay after playing dingy bars in Europe. The up-and-down friendship of high school buddies and bandmates Steve "Lips" Kudlow and Robb Reiner (no relation to the Spinal Tap director) is at the heart of this headbanging gem, an instant classic for those who were ever a part of the big hair and spandex generation.) 27 SAT | 8 p.m. | Rochester Premiere TOKYO! (Michel Gondry, Leos Carax, & Bong Joon-Ho, 2008 France/Japan/South Korea, 112 min., Japanese/French/subtitles) The omnibus film returns as three stylish contemporary directors tell separate weird and wonderful tales set in Japan's densely populated megalopolis. In Gondry's Interior Design, a directionless young couple are beginning to go under in this vast city until one of them becomes the object of a bizarre transformation. The grotesque title character (Denis Lavant) of Carax's Merde arises from the sewers to create panic on Tokyo streets, arousing both passion and revulsion. Lastly, Bong's Shaking Tokyo shows the love that develops between a pizza delivery girl and an agoraphobe when they find themselves in his apartment during an earthquake. 28 SUN | 4:30 p.m. | Rochester Premiere TOYKO! See June 27. 28 SUN | 7 p.m. | Rochester Premiere ANVIL!

James Stewart comes from Laramie to find and kill the man responsible for selling rifles to the Apaches who then massacred his brother's platoon. Structured like a classical tragedy and filled with memorable dialogue and powerful violence, Mann and Stewart's final Western together is also their first in widescreen CinemaScopeTM. Attn.
