W HAT? SEX WITH THE DEAD? Not in America!
Death counselor Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, author
of the best selling On Death and Dying, has become a
central figure of controversy due to her activities with
a counseling center where supernatural spirits sup-
posedly take human form and have sex with the living.
Ross, formerly well respected for her research and
workshops on coping with death, has come under fire
for embracing spiritualism, reports the New York
Times. In the past three years she has claimed an
association with supernatural beings, and announced
that she had lived in the time of Jesus under the name
Ross maintains connections with a counseling center
"church" in the mountains of South California at which
people are urged to relieve themselves of guilt, pain,
lack of self-worth, and cash. Former female members
of the center report that they were told to enter a side
room'where they were joined by a naked man who con-
vinced them he was an afterlife entity and that they
should have sex with him. Male members of the group
complained, as well they might, that no female "en-
tities" offered their services.
Joan Sutherland - whose magnificent sop-
rano voice is one of the wonders of our cen-
tury - and her husband Richard Bonynge
- whose piano virtuosity and conducting
skills are outstanding- are two of Aus-
tralia's prime musical gifts to the world.
Their recital launches the 101st season of
the Choral Union Series. 8:30, Hill Aud.
For nearly 30 years the dancers, singers, and
musicians of this Prague-based company
have represented the fun-loving, free-spirited
people of Bohemia. In over 8,000 perform-
ances attended by nearly 8 million people,
they have communicated a wonderful, infec-
tious spirit for the outside world to enjoy.

Cinema II proudly presents the Ann Arbor premiere of Joyce Wieland's
feature film, THE FAR SHORE. Set in Canada in 1919, the film is as
much about the social, political and artistic spirit of the times as it is
about love and lovers. Celine Lomez plays Eulalie, a young woman
who, growing restless in the suffocating atmosphere of her marriage,
is drawn into an affair with a neighboring artist. Focusing on a
woman's suppressed yearnings-emotional, sexual, and intellectual-
and examining the notion of a woman in ''her proper place," THE
FAR- SHORE is exquisitely photographer, with one.of the most erotic
interludes ever filmed.
After the film, JUDY STEED, co-producer (with Wieland), will speak
on its making and answer questions from the audience. 7:00 ONLY
