There's an article in today's Register-Star about the film festival happening in Hudson on Saturday: "Basilica Hudson kicks off film fest." Along with information about the film festival, the article announces a change of name for this unique performance and art space: Basilica Industria becomes Basilica Hudson . . . or does it?
Reporter John Mason seems a little uncertain about names--at least when it comes to the names of the owners of the space. He calls Tony Stone Tony Scott and Bill Stone Bill Scott for more than half the piece until he finally gets it right toward the end. The challenging name in the quartet of owners--Melissa Auf der Maur--he gets right every time. To be clear: the older generation are Bill Stone and Nancy Barber; the younger generation Tony Stone and Melissa Auf der Maur.
For those who want to attend the experimental film festival at Basilica Hudson but don't want to miss Aspern Papers, the new film by Hudson filmmaker Isabel Barton and her daughter Marianna Hellmund, which is making its U.S. premiere at FilmColumbia in Chatham on Saturday, no worries. Aspern Papers, based on the novel by Henry James, is being screened at 5 p.m. and runs for 84 minutes, which leaves ample time to get back to Hudson for the films at Basilica Hudson. The doors open at the Basilica at 7 p.m. The first program is at 8 p.m., the second at 9:30.
