    15th Annual Winter Lecture Series: Robert Mallet: Gardens of Meaning
    Botanical Gardens • Bronx

    “Some gardens stimulate our minds; others generate a more emotional reaction. For celebrated plantsman Robert Mallet, a landscape produces a liberating, therapeutic experience— evoked by biology, psychology, symbolism, and the classic principles of design. Drawing practical lessons with beautiful examples from his work at a historic French garden and the National Hydrangea Collection, Mallet shows how the designer’s attention to every detail and nuance—in planting, décor, and geometry—creates a mosaic of highly personal responses in the viewer. In this way, the garden of meaning can become to gateway to humility, curiosity, and respect for the natural world.”

    Talking Pictures: “In Bruges”
    Hastings Public Library

    “Martin McDonagh’s “In Bruges” is the 77th film we have screened at Talking Pictures yet one of only a handful of comedies. Far from your standard issue comedy, it is pitch black in tone and continuously subverts our expectations. With superb acting and wonderfully clever dialogue, it possesses a substantial depth that is belied by its twisted humor.”
