“Submission”
(2017) Drama
Great Point Media

2.5/5 stars

I never read Francine Prose’s novel “Blue Angel” but the movie the novel is based on is unfortunately (and perhaps mercifully) prosaic, hackneyed, and squanders what could and should have a better look into # Me Too politics.

Though director Richard Levine (“Every Day”) concludes his movie, “Submission” speaks for itself without rendering anymore dirty details about real or perceived sexual harassment in the workplace. Read the rest of this entry »

Raise Your Voice – Bullies Among Us

By PETER MOLENAAR

Let the neighborhood know that the Franklin Street Bakery has been under investigation for reportedly violating workplace rights. The National Labor Relations Board has found merit to some 50 violations of Federal law, such as confiscation of pro-union literature and prohibiting workers from speaking about the Union (Bakers… Local #22) during break times.

What should we call an employer who routinely hires vulnerable immigrants and then deploys intimidation to thwart union certification drives? Accordingly, Local #22 supports a path to citizenship and endorses the movement for immigrant rights. Read the rest of this entry »

Fantastical Worlds Exhibition at ASI

By The AMERICAN SWEDISH INSTITUTE
The Fantastical Worlds of Kim Simonsson, a new exhibition at the ASI, showcases sculptor Kim Simonsson of Fiskars, Finland, who crafts beguiling, evocative and otherworldly life-sized ceramics figures, including those he calls “Moss People.” A kneeling girl talking to a two-headed bunny, a sleeping woman surrounded by ghost children and a girl with golden birds flying out of her eyes are contemporary creations that invite viewers into a fairytale-like world inspired by Finland’s primeval forests April 21 – July 15, 2018. Nearly 35 selections of Simonsson’s work will be on view in the ASI’s contemporary Osher Gallery, and throughout the historic Turnblad Mansion. ASI is located at 2600 Park Avenue, Minneapolis. For more details, visit ASImn.org or call 612-871-4907.
