Sontag: Reborn Plays at ArtsEmerson’s Paramount Center through May 18th.
Sontag said of her diaries, "In the journal I do not just express myself more openly than I could in person. I create myself." Now her writing informs a new play, presenting a young Sontag wrestling with her emerging sexuality and precocious intelligence. Actor Moe Angelos is able to reveal Sontag's doubt and insecurity, masked by her ferocity. Adapted from Sontag's early journals, Reborn and As Consciousness is Harnessed to the Flesh, we learn about the woman through her words.
Fed Up At Kendall Square Cinema Friday.
Katie Couric and Laurie David question everything we thought we knew about food and weight loss, and they report on a 30-year campaign by the food industry, subsidized by the US government, to mislead and confuse the American public. Laurie David further clarified the message she's trying to convey. "If you’re eating donuts and you’re eating a lot of ice cream you know, 'Okay, I’m eating too much sugar.' But, you don’t know if you’re eating too much sugar if you’re buying salad dressing at the grocery store, or spaghetti sauce," she said. This film will scare you into eating better.
