Oscar Nominated Film: Cutie and the Boxer

Tuesday September 1, 2015: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: 4th Floor Meeting Room

The Oscar nominated documentary Cutie and the Boxer is a love story, an art story, a family story and a New York City story, all of them weird, funny and a little heartbreaking.

The acclaimed 2013 documentary is a candid New York love story about life and art that explores the chaotic 40-year marriage of renowned “boxing” painter Ushio Shinohara and his wife and artist Noriko. In addition to its Oscar nomination, Cutie and the Boxer won the 2014 Grierson Award for Best Cinema Documentary and the U.S. Documentary Directing Award for director Zachary Heinzerling at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival

Cutie and the Boxer provides a lively account of the their 40 years together, full of financial struggle, inebriation, parties, exhibitions, and Ushio's single-minded dedication to his work. But the essence of the film takes place in the present as Noriko finds her artistic voice in a storytelling series of black-and-white drawings depicting the relationship of "Cutie and Bullie," a thinly veiled, equally funny and painful recounting of her life with Ushio.

This event is collaboration with POV, PBS' award-winning nonfiction film series. The 82-minute documentary is rated R for art images

Smell & Tell: Enflowering the Carnal: The Scent of Fracas

Wednesday September 30, 2015: 6:30 pm to 8:45 pm -- Downtown Library: 4th Floor Meeting Room

This event is intended for adults and teens in grade 6 and up.

Fracas is a timeless rendition of tuberose that tattoos memory with fragrant clouds of voluptuous pleasure. Created in 1948 for designer Robert Piguet, this timeless perfume walks a sensualist’s tightrope that is one part pomp and swagger, one part pink velvet boudoir. Perfumer Germaine Cellier was known for formulating unique fragrances in her time, but there isn’t an interpretation of tuberose in perfumery to date that comes close to the beauty of Fracas. This Smell and Tell focuses on Cellier’s approach to fragrance creation and how she used her talent with the flourish of an iconoclast's wink. The Smell and Tell series at the Ann Arbor District Library is led by Michelle Krell Kydd, editor of fragrance blog Glass Petal Smoke.
