    2020 Van Thyn Lecture 2 of 2

    Tuesday, Mar 3rd 7:10p to 8:00p
    "Five Shots from the Ravine: Photographs of the Holocaust in Ukraine, 1942" Dr. Valerie Hébert’s presentation examines a series of five photographs documenting the mass shooting of Jewish women and children during World War II. The searing content of the photographs makes them nearly unbearable to look at. Then why should we? Proceeding from the scholarship on memorial culture and practice, as well as from consideration of Jewish religious rituals around death and dying, this talk will discuss how and why we should continue to engage these images. Photographs depicting violence and death will be shown during this lecture. Viewer discretion is advised. March 3, 2020 7-8pm Free & open to the public Centenary College of Louisiana Bynum Commons, Whited Room

    World Premiere of “Unexpected Modernism: Wiener Brothers Story” at the Strand Theatre 4/2/2020

    Thursday, Apr 2nd 6:00p to 9:00p
    The Louisiana Architecture Foundation (LAF), in partnership with the North Louisiana Jewish Federation and director Gregory Kallenberg, are proud to announce the world premiere of the documentary “Unexpected Modernism: The Wiener Brothers Story”. The red carpet premiere will take place Thursday, April 2nd at the Historic Strand Theatre in Shreveport. The event is the culmination of two years of filming which included interviews with members of the Wiener family, architecture experts, and the authors of The Modernist Architecture of Samuel G. & William B. Wiener, Karen Kingsley and Guy Carwile. The 43-minute film tells the story of Jewish architects Samuel G. and William B. Wiener, half brothers from Shreveport, whose modernist designs of residential, institutional, and commercial buildings from the 1930s through the 1960s made Shreveport an early hub of International Modernist design in the United States. “Unexpected Modernism: The Wiener Brothers Story” will premiere at a red carpet celebration in Shreveport on April 2nd at The Strand Theatre, which will include the world premiere screening of the film, special guest appearances, and a post-film panel discussion featuring architecture luminaries. Tickets are on sale now through the Strand Theatre box office. The trailer for the film is available at unexpectedmodernism.com.
