NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Windsor Lake will host a collaboration of community and art this coming spring with the city's first-ever Figment Project event.

The Windsor Lake Recreation Commission endorsed the project last week, with preliminary permission from the city, and an anticipated date of April 19.

Launched in 2007 with a one-day immersive event on New York's Governors Island, the platform for participatory art has grown to involve hundreds of communities across the country with events ranging from one to several days.

Figment Boston, for example, was held on the Rose Kennedy Greenway on a July weekend and offered music, dance (such as a colorful bubble-wrap dance floor),

I suspect Steven Spielberg, realizing that few folks were as lucky as I to have Mr. Green as their high school social studies teacher, felt the necessity to impart the grand civics lesson contained in his highly exciting "Bridge of Spies." Chastising the baloney and opportunism that too often attend the application of patriotism, he cannily mines its most honest essence in this important chronicle of the May, 1960 U-2 incident and the Cold War drama that followed. Our spy, Captain Francis Gary Powers, is caught, and the Russians plan to make the most of it.

This calls for good old American ingenuity ... the more homespun the better. Granted, it's a cliché, but a great

If it's just been driving you crazy lo these many years, wondering how exactly Peter became Peter Pan, then you might want to see director Joe Wright's prequel to J.M. Barrie's iconic fairy tale. But there'll be a price to pay, me hearty.

Written by Jason Fuchs, the literary interpolation, while conscientious and respectful of the source material to which it sings a paean, could never stand on its own. Piecing together a series of typical backstory clichés, delivered in a competent but rather dark cloud of special effects, moments of connection to the original are its only oases.

Furthermore, it's difficult to decide whether or not you'll want to take

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Wind-Up Fest might be a reboot of the Williamstown Film Festival, but it's not limited by movies.

With documentary film as its backbone, Wind-Up will expand from that and into other realms of non-fiction, including storytelling, journalism, and podcasts, to offer a multimedia experience. Representing that latter category will be Nick van der Kolk, creator, host, and director of "Love + Radio," winner of the Third Coast Festival Competition's top prize and part of PRX's Radiotopia Network.

Van der Kolk started the show in 2005 as an experiment, a creative outlet on the side from his job at public radio. It's gone through several

You may want to prepare a little before seeing "The Martian," Ridley Scott's fantastical journey to Mars — and maybe back — starring Matt Damon in the title role. If you have the time, getting a Ph.D. at MIT should put you in good stead to at least comprehend the technical jargon in this superbly crafted, Space Age update on the "Robinson Crusoe" tale. If not, simply join me and the rest of the Great Unwashed who, taking it on faith that this is as realistic as it gets, opt to be marooned astronaut Mark Watney's Man Friday.

Point of disclosure: Bobby De Niro and I go way back … two years before I began reviewing films. It was in "Mean Streets" (1973), when he played Johnny Boy, that I first noticed and commended his thespic talent. Since then, I'd like to think I've proved an encouraging factor. I don't know… he's never really said anything to me about it. I hope he's not angry or something. Commenting on how he's segued from strong dramatic leads to ever-available character actor, I've intended nothing but the highest respect. In "The

Spirited Wines of Lenox will present a five-course, six-Spanish wine pairing dinner at Café Adam in Great Barrington.

Spirited's wine merchant and owner Jim Nejaime said, "We'll showcase six great wines from one of Rioja's most iconic wineries, Bodegas Muga including Reserva and highly rated Grand Reservas. We have visited Muga multiple times to view their beautiful vineyards, natural winemaking techniques, their own fire-toasted barrel-making facility and to sample with Senor Muga their amazing wines."

Bodegas Muga was founded in 1932. Since then, it has become one of the icons of the Rioja region of Spain.
