n Hyenas — One of the treasures of African cinema, Senegalese master Mambéty’s long-delayed follow-up to his canonical Touki Bouki is a halucinatory comic adaptation of Swiss avant-garde writer Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s play The Visit, which in Mambéty’s imagining follows a now-rich woman returning to her poor desert hometown to propose a deal to the populace: her fortune, in exchange for the death of the man who years earlier abandoned her and left her with his child. Per its title, Hyenas is a film of sinister, mocking laughter, and a biting satire of a contemporary Senegal and western materialism. In Wolof with subtitles. 1992. 1h50m.

n Her Smell — Becky Something (Elisabeth Moss) is a ‘90s punk rock superstar who once filled arenas with her grungy all-female trio Something She. Now she plays smaller venues while grappling with motherhood, exhausted band mates, nervous record company executives, and a new generation of talent eager to usurp her stardom. When Becky’s chaos derails a recording session and national tour, she finds herself shunned, isolated, and alone. Writer-director Alex Ross Perry pumps up the volume and shines a light on the terrifying moment when super-stardom wanes, and quiet becomes the new loud. Anchored by a towering, unflinching performance from Golden Globe and Emmy winner Moss and supported by a stellar ensemble cast. 2018. 2h15m.

n Modern Times — Charlie Chaplin’s last outing as the Little Tramp, puts the iconic character to work as a giddily inept factory employee who becomes smitten with a gorgeous gamine (Paulette Goddard). With its barrage of unforgettable gags and sly commentary on class struggle during the Great Depression, Modern Times is a timeless showcase of Chaplin’s untouchable genius as a director of silent comedy. 1936. 1h27m

n Rafiki — Bursting with the colorful style of Nairobi’s youth culture, Rafiki is a love story between two young women in a country that still criminalizes homosexuality. Despite the rivalry between their families, Kena and Ziki encourage each other to pursue their dreams in a conservative society. When love blossoms between them, they must choose between happiness and safety. Initially banned in Kenya for its portrayal of queer romance, Rafiki won a landmark supreme court case chipping away at Kenyan anti-LGBT legislation. In English and Swahili with subtitles. 2018. 1h23m.

n The Silence of Others — A documentary on the first attempt in history to prosecute crimes of Franco’s 40-year dictatorship in Spain (1939-1975), whose perpetrators have enjoyed impunity for decades due to a 1977 amnesty law. It brings to light a painful past that Spain is reluctant to face, even decades after the dictator’s death.

The story unfolds on two continents: in Spain, where survivors and human rights lawyers are building a case that Spanish courts refuse to admit, and in Argentina, where a judge has taken it on using the principle of universal jurisdiction. In Spanish with subtitles. 2018. 1h36m.

n Gloria Bell — Gloria (Julianne Moore) is a free-spirited divorcée who spends her days at a straightlaced office job and her nights on the dance floor, letting loose at clubs around Los Angeles. After meeting Arnold (John Turturro) on a night out, she finds herself thrust into an unexpected new romance, filled with both the joys of budding love and the complications of dating, identity, and family. From Academy Award-winning director Sebastián Lelio (A Fantastic Woman, Disobedience) comes a sophisticated romantic comedy that shows love can strike at any time, relationships are never simple, and nothing can get you down as long as you keep dancing. 2019. 1h41m.

n Red Joan — Joan Stanley (Judi Dench) is a widow living out retirement in the suburbs when the British Secret Service places her under arrest. The charge: providing classified scientific information – including details on the building of the atomic bomb – to the Soviet government for decades. Joan relives the dramatic events that shaped her life: her student days at Cambridge, where she excelled at physics while challenging sexism; her affair with a political radical; and the devastation of World War II, which inspired her to risk everything in pursuit of peace. Based on a sensational true story. 2019. 1h50m.

Concerts in the Village

Saturday, May 11, 4 p.m.

Fanny and Felix – The Brilliant Mendelssohn Siblings

Performing will be the Broad Street Chamber Players, soprano Katherine Rossiter and pianist David Smith, CITV Artistic Director.

The first half of the program is devoted to Fanny’s songs “with and without words” and her remarkable String Quartet in E-flat, drawn from her total output of over 500 compositions! The richness, warmth and charm of Fanny’s songs are readily acknowledged by all who have heard them. Her “songs without words” are really short piano pieces of such lyrical quality that they are easily confused with those of her brother Felix. To encourage public acceptance, some of her compositions were in fact published under his name!

Following intermission, eight outstanding string players from the Broad Street Orchestra will perform the Octet, op. 20 by brother Felix. Although one of his most famous works, because of its performing demands and the difficulty in gathering eight qualified players, live performances of the great Octet are not frequent. Composed in 1825 in a matter of just a few months, when Felix was only 16, the drama and scale of this impressive work never fails to sweep listeners away, both musically and emotionally.
