Story submissions are now open for Double Take Arlington! This year, we're experimenting with people recording their stories on their own and submitting them to us. The AHRC Double Take Team will review all story submissions the week of January 28 and notify the selected storytellers who will be sharing their story at the community event at Town Hall on February 9th.

Here are some tips that may be helpful to you as you think about your story:

--The story does not have to have a big moral or lesson or theme. It does have to be about you!
--Think about the content of your story about also the style.
--Think about the first line and last line of the story, which are sometimes the most memorable to the audience.
--Use details like what you saw, tasted, smelled, heard and felt.
--In thinking about what your story may be, think about the challenge you faced, the choice you made and the outcome.

Please remember the following things to think about when you are filming your story:

--Find a quiet place with good light to set up your camera.
--If a friend is available to record your story for you, have them do that. Just make sure they hold the camera steady.
--Have your camera set up to record horizontally, not vertically.
--Try to keep your story to around 5 minutes.

We are open for submissions now until 1/25. Go to bitly.com/DoubleTake2019 to learn more. If you have any questions, concerns, technical difficulties at all, please let us know; email Commissioner Kristen Bauer at kbauer@arlingtonhumanrights.org.

We can't wait to hear your story!

STORYLINE / SYNOPSIS:

Peter Pan, the kid who doesn’t want to grow up, arrives at the Darling home searching for his shadow. He meets the Darling children and takes them to Never-Never Land, where they will fight against Capt. Hook and his pirate ship and crew. At the end the children will be back in their warm beds. Written by Adalberto Fornario

James Barrie held out for 20 years before allowing his classic tale of childhood to be adapted for the screen, and every actress in Hollywood wanted the role of Peter Pan. Mary Pickford, Lillian Gish, and even Gloria Swanson thought they were perfect for the role, but Barrie, who supervised this wonderful adaptation, went with virtual unknown Betty Bronson, who was most associated with the role until Mary Martin’s TV role in 1960.

On January 25, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the Lowe Auditorium at Arlington High School seven spectacular local a cappella singing groups will assemble for a beautiful tribute and benefit concert, entitled, A CATpella Festival to Belt Out Cancer, to remember the bright life and beautiful spirit of Catherine Malatesta and to benefit the Catherine J.

Headlining the program is Sound Off, one of New England’s top-ranked co-ed vocal ensembles.  They are the Season 3 Champions of WGBH’s “Sing that Thing” amateur singing competition show.  Tufts Beezlebubs, Tuft University’s oldest all-male a cappella group and Runner Up on NBC’s “The Sing Off” will headline the collegiate and high school line up.  Other featured acts include Boston College’s The Acoustics and The Common Tones, UMASS Amherst’s The Vocal Suspects, Arlington High School’s Madrigal Singers and Winchester High School’s Octet.  The Master of Ceremonies will be Arlington native and Anchor/Reporter at NEWS CENTER Maine in Portland, ME, Lindsey Mills.

Who Will Write Our History (Resistance comes in many forms)

01-27-2019

Presented by Regent Theatre at Regent Theatre, Arlington
Upcoming Dates: Sun, Jan 27 @ 2:00 pm Sun, Jan 27 @ 7:00 pm

[more+]

In November 1940, days after the Nazis sealed 450,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, a secret band of journalists, scholars and community leaders decided to fight back.  Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, this clandestine group vowed to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda not with guns or fists but with pen and paper.  Now, for the first time, their story is told.

Based on the book by Samuel D. Kassow, WHO WILL WRITE OUR HISTORY mixes the writings of the Oyneg Shabes archive with new interviews, rarely seen archival footage and stunning dramatizations to transport us inside the Ghetto and the lives of these courageous resistance fighters.  They defied their murderous enemy with the ultimate weapon – the truth – and risked everything so that their archive would survive the war, even if they did not.

With narration by Academy Award winner Adrien Brody and Academy Award nominee Joan Allen

About the Archive: In 1999, three document collections from Poland were included in UNESCO’s Memory of the World Register: the masterpieces of Chopin, the scientific works of Copernicus and the Oyneg Shabes Archive.  The Oyneg Shabes Archive is the richest cache of eyewitness accounts to survive the Holocaust.  Despite its importance, the archive remains largely unknown outside academic circles.  The theatrical release of WHO WILL WRITE OUR HISTORY is about to change that.

About the Global Screening Event: Across the world, on one single day, January 27, 2019, movie theaters, churches, mosques, synagogues, universities, museums and community centers will screen WHO WILL WRITE OUR HISTORY.  Audiences everywhere will join a post-screening discussion streamed on Facebook Live from the evening screening at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.

Play with vocal harmonies, rhythms and expression - easy to follow along, and opportunities to lead and improvise (for those who want to.) CircleSinging emphasizes being in the moment and opening to the creation of unexpected musical journeys. One person in the center of the circle makes up and teaches simple vocal parts to small sections on the outside of the circle, which combine to form an organic and dynamic whole. People can then improvise on top of the "groove." You can follow along, or volunteer to take a turn leading. We also do some simple vocal improv exercises. Our voices and our bodies are the only instruments! No experience necessary. You can read more and see videos of CircleSinging at our Meetup website  (scroll down under "What we're about" to see videos.)

This event happens one Saturday per month in Arlington and one Sunday per month in Cambridge.

A clock radio flips on, Sonny & Cher croon I Got You Babe, and prickly, self-centered TV weatherman Phil Connors awakens to another day in hell—in this case, Punxsatawney, PA. Doomed to relive a long and eventful day in the company of the folksy burg’s idiosyncratic citizens until he gets it right, Phil must first fail spectacularly—and hilariously—in his every attempt to selfishly exploit his predicament. Nothing delivers him from the round of rebirth or wins the heart of the lovely, perceptive Rita—not achieving sensual pleasure, money, power, nor even suicide---except perhaps his decision to let go of all that and become a bodhisattva. First screened in the Dharma Film Series’inaugural 2002-3 season, and most recently revived as a terrific Broadway musical, Groundhog Day may be the most astute, compelling treatment of Buddhist rebirth and ethics on film, and it is no doubt the funniest and most touching...especially on Groundhog Day! Presented with the Institute For Meditation & Psychotherapy

When the rich older spinster Emily French is brutally murdered, suspicion falls on her handsome young companion Leonard Vole. After he’s arrested and standing trial, he counts on his intriguing German wife Romaine to provide the alibi for his whereabouts at the time of the crime. But when Sir Robarts questions her, it quickly becomes clear that there is a lot of drama going on under the surface. When the time comes, will she be a witness for the defense or the prosecution?

The stakes are high and the intrigue is thick in this play from Christie, which has fascinated people through several versions over the years (from a short story to a play to a movie and to a TV series).

This version features shocking witness testimony, impassioned outbursts from the dock, and a young man’s fight to escape the hangman’s noose. Generally regarded as one of Christie’s most accomplished plays, this suspenseful thriller twists and turns until the very end—and then some more.

Set in London in the early 1950s, the play touches on profound themes in the wake of WWII in a war-weary nation.

How did we get here…and how did we get here? Jumping off from his extraordinary 2011 film The Tree of Life, director Terrence Malick departs altogether from characters and their stories to craft an epic visual poem: a meditation on the story of life itself. Operating on a cosmic scale, Voyage Of Time: Life’s Journey traces life’s origins back to the genesis of matter, as the universe expands and crystallizes into gases, galaxies, stars, and eventually our own Sun and Earth. No sooner than life enacts its first twitch does its quest commence to slake a primordial thirst for its own source, the Mother—a longing voiced (by Cate Blanchett) as an ethereal thought-poem of wonder and need that intensifies as flashes of raw present-day human interaction and conflict are intercut with the primeval evolutionary pageant. Neither documentary nor nature film, Voyage Of Time is of an art beyond category, like life itselfPresented with the Institute For Meditation & Psychotherapy

The teachings of Zen monk Thich Nhat Hanh, celebrated since his famous resistance during the Vietnam War, have brought together a vibrant community of monks and nuns in France and America who’ve dedicated their lives to the practices of mindfulness meditation and compassion. Walk With Me, both meditative and quietly stirring, journeys into the heart of their world as they confront and transform the suffering in themselves and others. At the center is the uplifting presence of Thich Nhat Hanh, whose example inspires others to inquire fearlessly into the nature of being itself and awaken to things as they are. Presented with the Institute For Meditation & Psychotherapy.

STORYLINE / SYNOPSIS:

Peter Pan, the kid who doesn’t want to grow up, arrives at the Darling home searching for his shadow. He meets the Darling children and takes them to Never-Never Land, where they will fight against Capt. Hook and his pirate ship and crew. At the end the children will be back in their warm beds. Written by Adalberto Fornario

James Barrie held out for 20 years before allowing his classic tale of childhood to be adapted for the screen, and every actress in Hollywood wanted the role of Peter Pan. Mary Pickford, Lillian Gish, and even Gloria Swanson thought they were perfect for the role, but Barrie, who supervised this wonderful adaptation, went with virtual unknown Betty Bronson, who was most associated with the role until Mary Martin’s TV role in 1960.

On January 25, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the Lowe Auditorium at Arlington High School seven spectacular local a cappella singing groups will assemble for a beautiful tribute and benefit concert, entitled, A CATpella Festival to Belt Out Cancer, to remember the bright life and beautiful spirit of Catherine Malatesta and to benefit the Catherine J.

Who Will Write Our History (Resistance comes in many forms)

01-27-2019

Presented by Regent Theatre at Regent Theatre, Arlington
Upcoming Dates: Sun, Jan 27 @ 2:00 pm Sun, Jan 27 @ 7:00 pm

[more+]

In November 1940, days after the Nazis sealed 450,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, a secret band of journalists, scholars and community leaders decided to fight back.  Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, this clandestine group vowed to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda not with guns or fists but with pen and paper.  Now, for the first time, their story is told.

Based on the book by Samuel D. Kassow, WHO WILL WRITE OUR HISTORY mixes the writings of the Oyneg Shabes archive with new interviews, rarely seen archival footage and stunning dramatizations to transport us inside the Ghetto and the lives of these courageous resistance fighters.  They defied their murderous enemy with the ultimate weapon – the truth – and risked everything so that their archive would survive the war, even if they did not.

With narration by Academy Award winner Adrien Brody and Academy Award nominee Joan Allen

About the Archive: In 1999, three document collections from Poland were included in UNESCO’s Memory of the World Register: the masterpieces of Chopin, the scientific works of Copernicus and the Oyneg Shabes Archive.  The Oyneg Shabes Archive is the richest cache of eyewitness accounts to survive the Holocaust.  Despite its importance, the archive remains largely unknown outside academic circles.  The theatrical release of WHO WILL WRITE OUR HISTORY is about to change that.

About the Global Screening Event: Across the world, on one single day, January 27, 2019, movie theaters, churches, mosques, synagogues, universities, museums and community centers will screen WHO WILL WRITE OUR HISTORY.  Audiences everywhere will join a post-screening discussion streamed on Facebook Live from the evening screening at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.

Play with vocal harmonies, rhythms and expression - easy to follow along, and opportunities to lead and improvise (for those who want to.) CircleSinging emphasizes being in the moment and opening to the creation of unexpected musical journeys. One person in the center of the circle makes up and teaches simple vocal parts to small sections on the outside of the circle, which combine to form an organic and dynamic whole. People can then improvise on top of the "groove." You can follow along, or volunteer to take a turn leading. We also do some simple vocal improv exercises. Our voices and our bodies are the only instruments! No experience necessary. You can read more and see videos of CircleSinging at our Meetup website  (scroll down under "What we're about" to see videos.)

This event happens one Saturday per month in Arlington and one Sunday per month in Cambridge.

A clock radio flips on, Sonny & Cher croon I Got You Babe, and prickly, self-centered TV weatherman Phil Connors awakens to another day in hell—in this case, Punxsatawney, PA. Doomed to relive a long and eventful day in the company of the folksy burg’s idiosyncratic citizens until he gets it right, Phil must first fail spectacularly—and hilariously—in his every attempt to selfishly exploit his predicament. Nothing delivers him from the round of rebirth or wins the heart of the lovely, perceptive Rita—not achieving sensual pleasure, money, power, nor even suicide---except perhaps his decision to let go of all that and become a bodhisattva. First screened in the Dharma Film Series’inaugural 2002-3 season, and most recently revived as a terrific Broadway musical, Groundhog Day may be the most astute, compelling treatment of Buddhist rebirth and ethics on film, and it is no doubt the funniest and most touching...especially on Groundhog Day! Presented with the Institute For Meditation & Psychotherapy

When the rich older spinster Emily French is brutally murdered, suspicion falls on her handsome young companion Leonard Vole. After he’s arrested and standing trial, he counts on his intriguing German wife Romaine to provide the alibi for his whereabouts at the time of the crime. But when Sir Robarts questions her, it quickly becomes clear that there is a lot of drama going on under the surface. When the time comes, will she be a witness for the defense or the prosecution?

The stakes are high and the intrigue is thick in this play from Christie, which has fascinated people through several versions over the years (from a short story to a play to a movie and to a TV series).

This version features shocking witness testimony, impassioned outbursts from the dock, and a young man’s fight to escape the hangman’s noose. Generally regarded as one of Christie’s most accomplished plays, this suspenseful thriller twists and turns until the very end—and then some more.

Set in London in the early 1950s, the play touches on profound themes in the wake of WWII in a war-weary nation.

How did we get here…and how did we get here? Jumping off from his extraordinary 2011 film The Tree of Life, director Terrence Malick departs altogether from characters and their stories to craft an epic visual poem: a meditation on the story of life itself. Operating on a cosmic scale, Voyage Of Time: Life’s Journey traces life’s origins back to the genesis of matter, as the universe expands and crystallizes into gases, galaxies, stars, and eventually our own Sun and Earth. No sooner than life enacts its first twitch does its quest commence to slake a primordial thirst for its own source, the Mother—a longing voiced (by Cate Blanchett) as an ethereal thought-poem of wonder and need that intensifies as flashes of raw present-day human interaction and conflict are intercut with the primeval evolutionary pageant. Neither documentary nor nature film, Voyage Of Time is of an art beyond category, like life itselfPresented with the Institute For Meditation & Psychotherapy

The teachings of Zen monk Thich Nhat Hanh, celebrated since his famous resistance during the Vietnam War, have brought together a vibrant community of monks and nuns in France and America who’ve dedicated their lives to the practices of mindfulness meditation and compassion. Walk With Me, both meditative and quietly stirring, journeys into the heart of their world as they confront and transform the suffering in themselves and others. At the center is the uplifting presence of Thich Nhat Hanh, whose example inspires others to inquire fearlessly into the nature of being itself and awaken to things as they are. Presented with the Institute For Meditation & Psychotherapy.
