Tybee Post Theater presents “The Trial of the Chicago 7”:

After a quiet run through the low-profile critics’ awards, “The Trial of the Chicago 7” showed up on everyone’s radar screen earning four nominations from the Golden Globes, including Best Drama, Best Director, and Best Screenplay.

Brilliant Writer-Director Aaron Sorkin’s monumental courtroom drama is based on the infamous 1969 trial of seven defendants charged by the federal government with conspiracy and more, arising from the countercultural protests in Chicago at the 1968 Democratic National Convention. The trial transfixed the nation and sparked a conversation about mayhem intended to undermine the U.S. government.

While “The Trial of The Chicago 7” takes place a half century ago, the film’s events feel very 2020,with its backdrop of protests against the establishment, police brutality and racism.

“’Chicago 7′ is a crowd pleaser first and foremost, and in that regard it succeeds on almost every level… the energy never flags, resulting in a movie that is by turns exhilarating, devastating, enraging, and inspiring, and above all, wildly entertaining,” write one critic. Rated R

Collecting Impressionism at The Jepson Center: In the 1870s, a radical new style of painting made its debut: Impressionism. Artists associated with the Impressionist movement broke with tradition by focusing on the effects of light and atmosphere, featuring a bright palette of vibrant colors and choppy, textured brushstrokes, and by taking modern life, rather than scenes from history or mythology, as their subject. This avant-garde style of art making quickly spread from its epicenter in Paris to other artistic hubs throughout Europe, the United States, and the world. In Savannah, Telfair Museums began acquiring and exhibiting canvases by French, German, and American Impressionist painters as early as 1906, often purchasing works directly from the artists themselves.

Collecting Impressionism: Telfair’s Modern Vision traces the early 20th-century footsteps of noted Telfair art advisor Gari Melchers (1860–1932) as he traveled the country and the globe identifying remarkable examples of the avant- garde art movement and giving them a permanent home in Savannah.
