Schnitzer Cinema

The Inner World of Aphasia is a 1967 film by Eugene filmmakers Edward and Naomi Feil, which explores the inability to speak due to a brain injury. It tells the story in a way which uniquely combines the techniques of art films and medical education films. As part of the Schnitzer Cinema series, it will be screened at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art in Eugene on Wednesday, November 15th at 7 p.m. Ken Feil is the son of the filmmakers, and senior scholar in residence in the Department of Media and Visual Arts at Emerson College.

Finance and spirituality converge in A Kaddish for Bernie Madoff, a live musical theater and media performance by violinist, vocalist, poet and Torah scholar Alicia Jo Rabins. She’ll perform it on Wednesday evening, March 8th at the UO’s Erb Memorial Union, as part of Schnitzer Cinema’s “In the Street” series. It’s paired with a panel discussion the next day at the UO called Betrayal and Unity: Law, Religion and the Bernie Madoff Scandal. Alicia Jo Rabins speaks with KLCC's Eric Alan.


The Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art presents a hand-drawn animated installation by performance artist and experimental filmmaker Laura Heit called “Two Ways Down,” through March 29th. It draws inspiration from the painting “The Garden of Earthly Delights” by Hieronymus Bosch, and uses everything from thrown shadows to human-animal hybrids. Laura Heit will present animations and a talk at the JSMA on February 11th, as part of the Schnitzer Cinema series, and she joins Eric Alan in the KLCC studios.
