Not all movies have remained true to the genuine history of the event or the characters they are portraying, often adding action and drama to increase the substance and popularity of the movie. The Movies Based on True Stories Database by Traciy Curry-Reyes was the first to compile a list of movies based on true stories and was the first site to coin the term "movies based on true stories" in the s.

The Provocateurs. Two of the best films were about South Asians in America. In Good Thing, a man of South Asian descent named Juggie longs to travel in Africa but finds himself married and running a variety store in Los Angeles with his pregnant wife. Filmmaker Kamala Lopez-Dawson '85, a festival organizer, says Filet of 4 was shot digitally in three or four days.
Then she spent a year editing it. Everyone involved is hoping to expand the event. This year, organizers showed a wide spectrum of work rather than full-length features. Anne Nelson '76 teaches writing and international media policy at the Columbia School of International and Public Affairs.
One October evening in , a slender teenager with a tumult of brown curls mounted the stage in Morse dining hall with her guitar. We'd heard she was good—after all, not every freshman gets a solo recital her second month of school.
But nothing prepared us for the torrent of virtuosity that followed. Those of us in the audience looked at each other with a sudden knowledge: this was only the beginning of what we were going to hear from Sharon Isbin.
It was my good fortune that Sharon and I became friends, granting me a ringside seat to follow her career. Sitting next to Isbin at dinner in those days was a little daunting. Her Yale education a B. In January, she becomes the first classical guitarist to release a recording in collaboration with the New York Philharmonic.
It is the Rodrigo that has the deepest personal resonance, stemming from a connection made in Madrid after the Queen Sofia competition. When Isbin began her career, classical guitar repertoire was largely defined by the works of Spanish and Latin American composers, supplemented by a few refugees from the baroque lute camp.
She set out to expand that universe, with disdain for traditional boundaries: working with Cuban composer Leo Brouwer, then traveling to Brazil to explore the Brazilian jazz idiom in collaborations with Antonio Carlos Jobim and Laurindo Almeida, then winding her way to the Amazon and the indigenous sounds of percussionist and composer Thiago de Mello. Isbin grew up in St. Louis Park, Minnesota. She began guitar at the age of nine, almost by accident, while her family was in Italy.
For a few years it looked as though she might follow her passion for physics and model rockets, but the guitar won out although Isbin credits her scientific, methodical approach for much of her technique. She was already a virtuoso by the time she applied to college, but decided against a traditional conservatory.
She never looked back. David Frum is a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.
To this day, Justice Thomas has declined to sit for a portrait for the Yale Law School: a small personal protest against an institution in which he felt unhappy as a student and which rallied to his accuser during the terrible battle over his nomination to the Supreme Court in The Hill-Thomas eruption was almost an intramural all-Yale battle. At the time he was nominated, Thomas was filling the D. Circuit seat that had formerly belonged to one-time Yale professor Robert Bork.
Anita Hill '80JD was a Yale graduate. So was the closest thing she had to a contemporaneous witness, Susan Hoerchner '80JD. Hardy died two years before the confirmation hearings. And so finally was George H. Bush '48, the U. So if in the end the book does not help us judge Thomas, it does help us understand him. Anderson refused. Anderson had become a Catholic, and so Clarence was sent to the still-segregated Catholic schools of Savannah.
