The Oedipus Cycle, The New Yorker, November 3, 2008
A couple of weeks ago, The New Yorker sent me to see The Oedipus Cycle at the Pearl Theatre. I attempted some life drawing during the play, but the theater was too dark to draw anything coherent. Fortunately, there was time during the intermissions to sketch out thumbnails. It was a great show- I'd definitely recommend checking it out.
The Oscar nominated "Katyń" (2007) tells the story of the Katyn Forest massacre of Polish soldiers by the Russians during World War II. This is considered director Andrzej Wajda's most important film- his father was a victim of the massacre. A Wajda retrospective is being shown at Lincoln Center from Oct. 17 through Nov. 13.
