Community Happenings From prdream.com A screening of THE KRUTCH at the Harlemwood Film Festival THE KRUTCH Written and directed by Judith Escalona 16mm/DV, 29 minutes Monday, June 20, 7PM The Museum of the City of New York 1220 Fifth Avenue (between East 103rd and East 104th Streets) "The Krutch" is a surreal narrative about a Puerto Rican psychoanalyst with a long-suppressed identity problem that erupts with some dire consequences. The film is unique in exploring the mental anguish and shame associated with racism. Stylistically akin to Buñuel with an eye towards Godard, it occupies an absurdist space that keeps it from descending into the maudlin cliches of realism. With Jaime Sanchez as the mysterious Dr. Guzman and Cathy Haase as his unsuspecting patient Mrs. Kleist. I will also be participating in a panel of filmmakers that evening. ====================================== Judith Escalona Director PRDREAM.COM 161 East 106th Street (212)828-0401 http://www

Travel The World Hip Place to Visit: Taiwan By WARREN WOODBERRY JR. When you see the words ‘Made in Taiwan’ etched on the back of your television remote control, you probably conjure up visions of factory workers on an assembly line cranking out needless gizmos to flood the American market. Taiwan’s pretty well-known for being the world’s number one producer of laptop computers, but few people are hip to the island - officially the Republic of China as being one of Asia’s most beautiful lands. Slightly larger than Massachusetts and Connecticut combined, Taiwan was named by Portuguese explorers as Ihla Formosa meaning, “beautiful island.” With its tropical climate, the temperature is about 70 degrees Fahrenheit most of the year. The island is 36,000 square-miles and includes several off-shore islands. The heart of Taiwan is Taipei, the capital city. The northern city is a bustling modern international metropolis with a thriving arts and cultural center, and

Education Corner May 18, 2005 NCLR REPORT HIGHLIGHTS NEED FOR IMPROVEMENTS TO THE HEAD START PROGRAM FOR HISPANIC CHILDREN Washington, DC - Today, the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), the largest national Latino civil rights and advocacy organization in the U.S., released a white paper entitled Head Start Reauthorization: Promoting School Readiness for Hispanic Children. Head Start is the federal program that provides low-income children with a high-quality early education. The report found that while Head Start is a widely successful program overall, it can be improved to better meet the needs of Hispanic children who represent a large share (34%) of the eligible Head Start child population. "One of the most successful education programs ever created, Head Start has a long history of preparing children for the first day of school. It is critically important that Congress make Head Start more accessible to Latino families and more effective in addressing the school readine
