Late Night Film: Vision Portraits

Friday, November 15, 9:30 p.m.

Vision Portraits is the personal story of filmmaker Rodney Evans as he embarks on a scientific and artistic journey, questioning how his loss of vision might impact his creative future. Through illuminating portraits of three artists: a photographer, a dancer, and a writer, the film looks at the ways these artists were affected by vision loss and how their creative process has changed or adapted.

Samantha Power

Monday, November 18, 7:30 p.m.

Location: The Hockaday School, Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Theater
In partnership with World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth 

In her new memoir The Education of an Idealist, Pulitzer Prize winner Samantha Power traces her distinctly American journey from Irish immigrant to human rights activist to US Ambassador to the United Nations. Heralded by President Barack Obama as one of America’s “foremost thinkers on foreign policy,” Power reminds us how the United States can lead, and why there is always something each of us can do to advance the cause of human dignity. This memoir is a humorous, stirring, and unforgettable account of the world-changing power of idealism and one person’s fierce determination to make a difference.

Peggy Wallace Kennedy & Donna Wilhelm

Thursday December 5, 7:30 p.m.

In conversation with Krys Boyd of KERA

Peggy Wallace Kennedy, seen as the “symbol of racial reconciliation” (Washington Post), is the daughter of one of America’s most virulent segregationists, former governor of Alabama and presidential candidate George Wallace, who ultimately renounced his views at the end of his life. Wallace Kennedy’s powerful memoir The Broken Road is both timely and timeless and speaks to change, atonement, activism, and racial healing. A Life of My Own follows Donna Wilhelm’s path from a lonely child in an immigrant boarding house to corporate wife and mother, to middle-aged divorcee, and finally to her reinvention as a philanthropist, arts advocate, and humanitarian. This evocative memoir reveals her unique upbringing, diverse work history, family challenges, and journey of personal growth with unbridled honesty and will inspire others to take ownership of their stories.
