At age 18, Dorothy Stratten left her job at a Dairy Queen and moved to Hollywood, soon becoming famous as the 1980 Playboy ‚ÄĚPlaymate of the Year.‚ÄĚ In Los Angeles, Dorothy captivated the attention of legendary Playboy publisher Hugh Hefner, who had big plans for her in the Playboy empire, and powerful movie director Peter Bogdanovich, who cast her in a breakthrough role in his film ‚ÄúThey All Laughed,‚ÄĚ alongside iconic actors Audrey Hepburn, John Ritter and Ben Gazzara.

Yellow Peril is pleased to announce 'Movies That Charmed,' a month-long film series presented by Emile Doll, founder of Queer History Cinema, featuring underrepresented visions outside mainstream portrayals of queer desire and love. The screenings will be hosted on Saturdays in April at Yellow Peril, beginning with 'Personal Best' (1982) on April 7 from 7:30 p.m. - 10 p.m. This screening series complements the current exhibit, 'Charmed,' curated by Kyle Quinn of Raw Meat Collective, which explores the sexual desire and intimacy by queer artists of color. Featured films selected for 'Movies That Charmed' include: 'Personal Best' (1986). Directed by Robert Towne and starring Mariel Hemingway and Patrice Donnelly. 'Personal Best' follows the relationship between two Olympic hopefuls who are led to choose between their increasing attraction and their goals of achieving the highest honor in their field. In English. Screening April 7. 'I Don't Want to Sleep Alone' (2006). Directed by Tsai Ming Liang and starring Lee Kang-Sheng, Norman Atun, and Cheng Shiang-chyi.

Two women, trapped in miserable heterosexual marriages, are pulled together by love and attraction despite enormous outside pressures trying to keep them apart. In Hindi and English with English subtitles. Screening April 28. 'Desire' has a number of different meanings, with a similar root. One can desire another, while one can also desire a goal or feeling. These films all show different iterations of desire and want, from sexual desire to the desire for respect,' notes Doll, on why he selected these films. 'Each film shows characters that want something deeply, and the extent to which they will go to achieve what they want.' Doll plans to extend the reach of Queer Cinema History to a larger audience throughout the year during special events held in Rhode Island, such as PVDfest and Pride. The first screening for 'Movies That Charmed' is 'Personal Best' (1986), which will be on Saturday, April 7, from 7:30 p.m. - 10 p.m. This is Queer Cinema History's first collaboration with Yellow Peril.

Zimmerli Art Museum to Display 'Early Adopters: The Social Media Prototypes of Daumier and Warhol'
by BWW News Desk - Feb 11, 2016

Artists have always examined the intricacies of human nature ‚Äď whether in their work or through the reactions of the viewer. Two new exhibitions at the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers demonstrate how artists working nearly 150 years apart applied their understanding of the public's fallibility to create iconic images.¬†Honor√© Daumier and the Art of La Caricature¬†and¬†More than Fifteen Minutes of Fame: Warhol's Prints and Photographs, both¬†drawn from the museum's extensive print collection¬†and on view through¬†July 31,¬†demonstrate how these artists took advantage of the new technologies of their eras to disseminate their work to a broad public, influencing the views and tastes of their contemporaries. Daumier and Warhol also established legacies that remain relevant in today's visual political commentary and pop culture, particularly as seen in the endless supply of ‚Äď and demand for ‚Äď ideas and images in today's social media.
