Minority fest
at East Quad

. Q(ZC

By PATRICIA SCHAEFER
"We want to expose students to the
arts and cultures of different groups, to
develop an appraciation of minority
experiences," says Hayward Maben,
one of the directors of the Seventh An-
nual Minority Arts and Cultural
Festival, taking place this weekend at
East Quad.
The event, which will emphasize
black culture and awareness, will in-
clude poetry readings, a jazz concert,
mime shows, ethnic dancing, gospel
music, a political workshop, and karate
and art exhibitions.
THIS YEAR's edition of the festival,
which began in 1974 as a showcase for
minority students in East Quad, has at-
tracted campus-wide attention and par-
ticipants from Metropolitan Detroit,
according to Maben and co-director
Annie Malayang.
Among the highlights of this year's
festival are:
" a panel workshop on "Strategies of
Social Change for Peoples of Color"
Friday afternoon, focusing on planning
of grass roots organizations. The panel
will specifically address the problems
of racism, unemployment, and the lack
of educational opportunities'as well as
discussing methods of prompting
minority cultures in the community;
" a fashion/performing arts show
Saturday, night, which will exhibit

clothes from local stores and showcase
African and Hispanic dances, a mime
show, singing, and jazz music;
" a Saturday afternoon presentation
from black fraternities and sororities
on campus, accompanied by slide
shows and an exhibit of assorted
paraphernalia;" and
" a benefit dance Friday night to
provide funding for four East Quad
Minority Scholarships of $25 each. The
awards-will be granted on the basis of
grade-point averages and extra-
curricular activities.
The festival began last night with
Mayor Robert Blackwell of Highland
Park speaking on "1981-1985-The
Outlook for Minorities" during the
opening ceremonies followed by a jazz
concert featuring the Lyman Woodard
Organization from Detroit. The warm-
up band was the local MC2.
The event is sponsored by the East
Quad Representative Assembly,
University Housing-special Projects,
the Residential College, and the
Michigan Student Assembly.

Xerox art by Dan Mulholland
ART
Xerox Art-Moving from the storefronts and telephone poles of Ann
Arbor to the walls of a local grocery, Dan Mulholland opens an exhibition
of xerox art entitled "Rockets From Flint." Mr. Mulholland, lead singer
with the Urbations, selects his images from a fascinating catalogue of
blues punks, hot rods, highway cliffhangers and 50's surrealism. Many of
the posters are surprisingly affordable, so check it out at the Dreyfuss
Gallery, 2091/2 N. Main. Two days only, February 6,7-9 p.m. and Feb. 7, 11
a.m.-4 p.m.
MOVIES
The Chase-Arthur Penn's supposed "first masterpiece" is relentlessly
terrible, and you can have a wonderful time watching all these respectable
folk act as if they're in heat-Jane Fonda, Robert Redford, Marlon Bran-
do (the only one in on the joke), Robert Duvall, Angie Dickinson, etc.
Lillian Hellman, who wrote the original script, claimed interference; Pen
can only claim temporary insanity. This is the penultimate in-the-heat-of-
the-night southern mellers, complete with lynch mobs and martyrs and
heaving breasts-all the worse for being heavily dunked in Meaning. Oh,
the decay of it all! It's like a Tennessee Williams play at 78 rpm-hyper-
ventilation played for tragedy. A scream. Thursday, January 12, 9:00,
Lorch Hall.
Eight Minutes to Midnight--An anti-nuclear documentary about Dr.
Helen Caldicott, President of Physicians for Social Responsibility. At the
Detroit Institute of Arts, February 6, 9 p.m.

EDVARD MUNCH
(Peter Watkins, 1976)
Munch, crucified by critics in the late 19th century, is now considered one of
the seminal figures of Expressionism. To portray this complex character,
Watkins suggests the totality of factors that produce an artist. Part biography
part sociology, part history, part psychology, part visual analysis, Edvard
Munch is a monument to the man whose life and art were a prophecy of the
anxiety of the 20th century. (167 min.)

JULES AND JIM
(Francois Truffaut, 1961)
This is the film that propelled Truffaut to the head of the French New Wave.
Although it evokes the romantic nostalgia before the First World War, Jules
and Jim exquisitely illuminates a modern woman, Catherine (Jeanne
Moreau), amoral and classically beautiful, who loves two fraternal friends
and must have them both. "Will rank among the greatest lyrical achievements
of the screen." Pauline Kael, French with subtitles. (104 min.)
