Black Bear Fest welcomes Keir Dullea

By GREG WATRY
gwatry@njherald.com

MILFORD, Pa. — The lineup for the 15th annual Black Bear Film Festival, which kicks off Friday, Oct. 17 and ends Sunday, Oct. 19, promises to provide attendees with a variety of film choices. From science fiction selections, such as “Under The Skin” starring Scarlett Johansson, to comedy-dramas, such as Jon Favreau’s “Chef,” attendees are sure to find something to satiate their film tastes.

But the festival is also a venue for guest speakers from the film and entertainment world. Both the main stage, and the free Black Bear Film Festival Salon, which will be held Oct. 18 and 19 at the Pike County Public Library, will feature speakers and give attendees a glimpse into the world behind the screen.

Following a showing of the 1965 film “Bunny Lake Is Missing,” at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, an interview will be held with one of the film’s stars Keir Dullea.

Well-known for his role as David Bowman in Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey,” Dullea plays Steven Lake, the uncle of a four-year-old girl who goes missing in the film. With the assistance of Inspector Newhouse, played by Laurence Olivier, the group searches for missing Bunny Lake, whose very existence comes into question.

“You find out that my character is a bit of a nutcase,” Dullea teased when reached by phone on Thursday.

The film was shot in London, a city that Dullea expressed an affinity for. However, filming was a different story.

“It was one of the worst experiences I ever had with a director,” Dullea said of working with Otto Preminger. “He loved to scream at people and humiliate them.”

On a day off from shooting, Dullea went to a funfair close to the River Thames. He decided to get his palm read. The palm reader asked if Dullea was an engineer or a mathematician because he saw a rocket ship in his future.

About a week later Dullea’s wife told him to call his agent, who had some big news. He’d just been offered the lead in Kubrick’s newest film.

At the time, “I was a Kubrick fan,” Dullea said. “I just couldn’t believe it.”

He described Kubrick as the quiet type, who never raised his voice. “When you were around Kubrick, you knew you were in the presence of genius,” he said. “It was magical.”

While he doesn’t consider 2001 the peak of his career, Dullea said, “I’m an important cog in a beautiful piece of machinery.”

He still attends many events focused on the film. In November, Dullea will travel to Toronto for a special showing of the film by the Toronto International Film Festival. On Nov. 28, the British Film Institute will re-release the picture nationwide, and Dullea is traveling to London for the event. “It seems to have a never-ending life,” Dullea said of the film many people call a masterpiece.

Dullea first became interested in acting as a young boy. Stricken with rheumatic fever, he couldn’t participate in sports. Instead, he focused inwards.

Acting “gave me the opportunity to escape from myself into various roles,” he said. Eventually, he began to appreciate acting as an art form.

He pursued roles while he attended the George School, a boarding school in Bucks County, Pa.

“The human persona is like a rainbow,” Dullea said. Acting gives you “the opportunity to explore a different color than you usually have.”

Eventually, Dullea hitchhiked from the East Coast to San Francisco, where he worked as a carpenter while attending San Francisco State College. A visit from his parents prompted Dullea to consider pursuing his passion of acting, which they supported. He moved to New York City where he was told the best acting teachers were. His lead role in the 1962 film “David and Lisa” launched his career, Dullea contends.

This isn’t Dullea’s first time attending the Black Bear Film Festival. Last year he attended the event because he was in the film “Isn’t It Delicious,” which was part of the festival’s lineup.

“We enjoyed the people very much at this particular film festival,” he said.

“Out of the blue, they invited me back this year,” Dullea said. “It’s kind of like coming back to a familiar place.”

Jerry Beaver, founder of the festival and part-time Milford area resident, can’t help but wonder at the growth of his festival as it hits a milestone 15th year.

“It’s quite amazing that in a small town things last more than one or two years,” Beaver said during a recent press event to announce this year’s films. “In my mind, the Black Bear Film Festival is now a regional film festival. It’s not a local film festival, because the people coming from 100 miles away spend the weekend here. They’re staying in hotels, or bed and breakfasts; they are eating in the restaurants.”

The Black Bear Film Festival kicks off on Friday night with a gala at 6 p.m., at St. Patrick’s Church in Milford, Pa. The film “Chef” will be shown at 8 p.m.

Main stage films will be shown at the Milford Theatre, located on Catharine Street.

A complete schedule for the film festival can be found at www.BlackBearFilm.com. Tickets can also be bought on the website. Individual film tickets cost $10. A gold pass costs $150.

“There is a lot to be said about this being our 15th year,” Beaver said in a statement. “We are fortunate enough to be able to continue to celebrate the art of independent film — from the writers and actors to directors and the producers — and this year we really wanted the films to be special. We truly hope that festival-goers enjoy this year’s festival as much as we have had putting it together.”

This film sort of slipped in under the wire, though I know all us Keir Dullea fans knew of it. SPACE STATION 76 is a farcical look at the space opera. It pulls from various sources including most of the science fiction films and television series of the era including my favourite show Space: 1999, Buck Rogers, Star Wars, and likely even Keir’s films 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY and 2010: ODYSSEY TWO where he played the part of Commander Dave Bowman. Here Keir’s part is largely a cameo playing Liv Tyler’s father, Mr. Marlowe. His scene comes about forty minutes into the film where he’s only seen on a small monitor attached to a contemporary touch-tone phone. It’s really kind of funny. And the part that gets me is his appearance is reminiscent of his first scene in the Peter Hyams aforementioned film 2010: THE YEAR WE MAKE CONTACT. Yeah, I know I called it Odyssey Two, but that’s the title I like to call it by. Below is a side-by-side comparison of Keir then and now.

Yep, as the title says. Keir and Gary are going to be making an appearance on behalf of 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. Where? At the Toronto International Film Festival. Keir and Gary will introduce the film and host a Q&A afterwards. I’m not sure of the venue, yet, but when I finally find out I’ll either edit this post or make a new one if this one has moved down. I do know the date is 01 November, 2014 at 2:00 PM. Again, not sure of the location…but I know it’s somewhere in the big T.O. That’s Toronto for those not initiated with the Canadian sensibility. Apparently this is part of a week long celebration at TIFF Cinematheque to honour the film and its amazing director, Stanley Kubrick. I’ll keep you posted as the event comes up. I won’t be able to attend, unfortunately my personal life sort of precludes that. Here’s some of the info.

2001: A Space Odyssey introduced by Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood

2001: A Space Odyssey

Directed by Stanley Kubrick
(PG)

Part of 2001: A Space Odyssey introduced by Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood

One of the most revered films of all time, Stanley Kubrick’s science-fiction masterpiece about a doomed intergalactic mission is still “the ultimate trip.”

“The ultimate trip,” Kubrick’s science-fiction masterpiece has survived innumerable parodies, references and rip-offs with its awe-inspiring power intact. Tracing a cosmic mystery from the dawn of mankind to the farthest reaches of time and space, 2001 chronicles an intergalactic mission to find the origin of a mysterious black monolith discovered by American astronauts on the moon — a mission complicated when the ship’s renegade computer HAL 9000 decides that its human cargo is inadequate to carry out such an important task. When they realize that HAL is turning on them, astronauts Dave Bowman (Keir Dullea) and Frank Poole (Gary Lockwood) have to outwit the omniscient machine to survive. Featuring spectacular special effects by Douglas Trumbull, 2001 pointedly speculates on what it means to be human in an age dominated by technology, and what the next stage of human evolution could potentially be.

Our week-long engagement of 2001: A Space Odyssey plays in conjunction with the TIFF Cinematheque retrospective Stanley Kubrick: A Cinematic Odyssey.

The Toronto International Film Festival or as it’s known up here North of the border, TIFF, is in full swing and news comes that Keir’s film INFINITELY, POLAR BEAR is opening. The film stars Mark Ruffalo as Keir’s son. From the reviews I’ve heard on the radio they’ve said this film is excellent and Keir’s one scene is a heart breaker. Given my previous post I suppose it was too much to ask for Keir to attend? Likely. A girl can dream.

Gala Presentations | USA | Maya Forbes | 88 minutes
Infinitely Polar Bear

A loving husband and father struggling with manic depression (Mark Ruffalo) is forced to raise his two young daughters on his own, in this moving and inspirational drama based on writer-director Maya Forbes’ own childhood experiences.

Inspired by writer-director Maya Forbes’s own childhood, this lovingly detailed, bittersweet debut careens between laughter and anxiety as it invites us into a singular family’s chaotic home.

Raising a family isn’t easy for anyone, but the Stuarts are a little more challenged than your average parents. Cameron Stuart (Mark Ruffalo, also appearing at the Festival in Foxcatcher) has suffered a nervous breakdown and been diagnosed with manic depression, a highly stigmatized label that, in 1978 Boston, renders him virtually unemployable. Maggie Stuart (Zoe Saldana) works hard but can’t quite make ends meet. They are highly educated and completely broke. They also have two precocious young daughters to care for.

A solution presents itself, but with it come unnerving risks: Maggie accepts a scholarship to pursue her business degree in New York, which means leaving Faith and Amelia in Boston — and solely in the hands of their father. Infinitely Polar Bear chronicles the eighteen-month period in which the aggressively gregarious, always unpredictable Cameron struggles to cope with his condition and become a viable single parent to the little girls he so clearly loves.

Humour and heartbreak alike are on offer as we witness Cameron stumble in his attempts to be a good neighbour and engaged father while attending to his wildly varying moods and impulses. For every misstep, there is evidence of Cameron’s fierce love, and Ruffalo performs the remarkable feat of keeping his character utterly sympathetic even in his darkest, most irresponsible moments. We can see plenty of problems and peril in the Stuart family, but, if we look closer, we can also see their wondrous gifts.

This is just new. Keir will narrate Stories From The Sea to include Walt Whitman’s Poems and Songs. Read on.

GBS opens 69th season with new conductor; actor Keir Dullea to narrate

Phyllis A.S. Boros
Published 5:16 pm, Tuesday, September 9, 2014

New, new, new — and lots of tradition, too.

That’s the philosophy at the Greater Bridgeport Symphony, which opens its 69th season at the Klein Memorial Auditorium on Saturday, Sept. 13 — a month earlier than usual.

Its new music director/conductor Eric Jacobsen, a cellist, will kick off his concert-week public appearances on Thursday, Sept. 11, at the Pequot Library, in Fairfield, with noted area pianist Alan Murchie. The event is part of the library’s annual concert series.

Also new: The season has been expanded from five to six concerts (with Jacobsen conducting five of them). Music lovers can purchase five-concert or six-concert subscriptions (with the six-concert package including “A Folk Christmas” on Saturday, Dec. 6).

Special discounts are being offered for 20-somethings to foster the season as a date-night destination for younger audiences. It’s a “$30 Under 30″ six-concert subscription for $180, featuring prime seating and full subscriber benefits.

Opening night’s “Stories from the Sea” will include “Walt Whitman, Poems and Songs,” with narration provided by stage and screen actor Keir Dullea, a Connecticut resident who has gained a large local following for his many contributions to the community arts scene. He starred in the iconic 1968 space movie, Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

The songs are all original, written by guitarist Kyle Sanna, flutist Alex Sopp, Jacobsen and his brother Colin, a renowned violinist. The four musicians make up Brooklyn Rider, a successful quartet that performs around the world, and are all members of the New York-based Knights Orchestra.

The opening-night program also will include Mendelssohn’s “Hebrides” Overture, Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Scheherazade” and Dvorak’s Slavonic Dances.

A music director’s first season is always a special one, said Jacobsen, who celebrated his 32nd birthday in July.

When putting the season together, Jacobsen said he planned it to be “alive with discovery and excitement, full of chance and exploration.” And the GBS also “will have the repertoire that we all know and love to re-examine,” he added.

Subscribers receive a 20 percent discount compared with individual tickets. As a bonus, subscribers will receive a free pair of tickets to any concert so that they may introduce friends or relatives to the GBS.

The six-concert season packages range from $139.20 to $283.20; five-concert packages (without the holiday event) range from $116 to $236.
