Tibetan Birds and Sky Burial

As Staten Island OutLOUD celebrates Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon for The Big Read, we’ll take a cultural detour to explore one of Staten Island’s treasures, the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art. And there we’ll find some intriguing & unexpected tie-ins to some themes and imagery in The Maltese Falcon. We’ll examine how Tibetan art and art objects incorporate bird images (plenty of cranes, maybe a falcon or two), and the Himalayan custom of sky burial (plenty of vulture, and maybe a few falcons, as they eat carrion). We’ll also hear from Meg Ventrudo, the museum’s Director, about a notorious Asian art heist – Shades of The Maltese Falcon?

What are the reasons why most women are in prison and what are the special challenges they face? If the case against Brigid O'Shaughnessy were brought to trial now, how would she be prosecuted? How would she be defended? Guest speakers TBA. Other issues that we'll explore include: a layperson's overview of criminal work; how defense attorneys work with the police & DA; how defense attorneys work with private investigators. We'll also examine a frequent layperson's question: "How can a defense attorney represent a 'bad guy'? Guest speakers: Hon. Michael McMahon, Richmond County District Attorney; Hon. Wanda DeOliveiria, Chief of the Special Victims Bureau of the Richmond County District Attorney’s Office; Mario Galluci, Esq., noted defense attorney; and others TBA.
