Weiner
Directed by Josh Kriegman, Elyse Steinberg
English
1 hr 40 mins, rated R


Sexts, lies, and Carlos Danger: watch the wildest political meltdown in recent history as it unfolds. It’s 2013 and Anthony Weiner—still reeling from the sex scandal that ended his political career two years earlier—is back in the spotlight as he mounts an audacious comeback campaign for New York City mayor. But it’s not long before history repeats itself and new sexting allegations leave Weiner and his aides scrambling to contain the damage. Granted unfettered access to the candidate and his campaign, filmmakers Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg capture a jaw-dropping, behind-the-scenes look at the political machine as it breaks down. Winner of the 2015 Sundance Grand Jury Prize.

Not to be missed!  Percussive dancer Nic Gareiss and harpist and singer Maeve Gilchrist bring together fingers and feet to create an ear-bending, visual delight like you’ve never seen or heard before!


Michigan-born percussive dancer, Nic Gareiss and Scottish harpist Maeve Gilchrist met while both teaching at the Shasta Fiddle Camp in Northern California. They continued their musical relationship with spontaneous collaborations at festivals and chance meetings and later toured together as part of Darol Anger’s band, ‘The Furies’.


Sharing a deep respect for traditional music and culture while drawing on contemporary elements of music, movement, rhythm and improvisation, Nic and Maeve have emerged from the vibrant new acoustic scene as innovators in their fields. The percussion and drive of Nic’s footwork combined with Maeve’s melodic and improvisational sensibilities make for an explosive duet that delights both the ears and the eyes.


Don’t miss this opportunity to see and hear these truly world-class performers in an intimate, up-close-and-personal space.

English
1 hr 15 mins


2010 Academy Award® Nominee –Best Animated Feature


A masterpiece from the producers of KIRIKOU, THE SORCERESS and TRIPLETS OF BELLEVILLE! Magic, fantasy and Celtic mythology come together in a riot of color and detail that dazzle the eyes in this sweeping story about the power of imagination and faith to carry humanity through dark times. Features the voices of Brendan Gleeson (Harry Potter, In Bruges), Mick Lally, Evan McGuire and Christen Mooney.


Young Brendan lives in a remote medieval outpost under siege from barbarian raids. But a new life of adventure beckons when a celebrated master illuminator arrives from foreign lands carrying an ancient but unfinished book, brimming with secret wisdom and powers. To help complete the magical book, Brendan has to overcome his deepest fears on a dangerous quest that takes him into the enchanted forest where mythical creatures hide. It is here that he meets the fairy Aisling, a mysterious young wolf-girl, who helps him along the way. But with the barbarians closing in, will Brendan’s determination and artistic vision illuminate the darkness and show that enlightenment is the best fortification against evil?
SHORT: In the remote Irish woods, Cellach (Brendan Gleeson) prepares a fortress for an impending attack by a Viking war party. Unbeknown to Cellach, his young nephew Brendan (Evan McGuire) -- who has no taste for battle -- works secretly as an apprentice in the scriptorium of the local monastery, learning the ancient art of calligraphy. As the Vikings approach, revered illuminator Aidan (Mick Lally) arrives at the monastery and recruits Brendan to complete a series of dangerous, magical tasks.

STARCROSSED LOSERS
Starcrossed Losers is the music of Kyle Morgan, a songwriter and guitarist based in Portland, ME.  Working with a rotating cast of bandmates from Maine to Tennessee, his dynamic performances range in style from stripped-down acoustic balladry and love-lorn parlor laments to old-school rock'n'roll, gritty gypsy-blues and distorted proto-punk.  Weaving together these seemingly disparate musical forms with a voice at once emotive and playful, Morgan's songs reflect the angst and longing of spirit bound by human form: Starcrossed Losers.

Presentation
“Oh! Victor Hugo’s Le Roi s’amuse is the greatest subject, and perhaps the greatest drama of modern times. It’s a work worthy of Shakespeare!”  A few  months  before  he wrote those words to Francesco Maria Piave urging him to “turn Venice upside down and persuade the Censor to authorise the subject” – no easy matter given that moral values would be easily offended – Verdi was working on an adaptation of King Lear.


No doubt, he was already imbued with the play by his revered master, Shakespeare, when he read Victor Hugo's drama. On discovering in the works of  the French writer to whom he would owe Ernani, the greatest triumph of his “difficult years”, a parallel with the triangle formed by the King,  his daughter and the jester, it was “like a thunderbolt, an inspiration”. Between the frivolous, licentious Duke, and Gilda, a victim of the ignorance which holds her  captive, stands the double-faceted character of the hunchback, both buffoon and curse-obsessed father. Monstrous and heartrending, grotesque and sublime, the title role reaches its apogee in the aria “Cortigiani, vil razza dannata”, whose descending movement, from the explosion of rage to the moment of entreaty, confirms the composer’s ability to adapt a form inherited from bel canto to theatrical realism.


Under the baton of Nicola Luisotti, this new production of Rigoletto marks director Claus Guth’s first collaboration with the Paris Opera.

Sassquatch is the missing link between funk, fusion, jazz, rock and pop. With the massive support of their fans, and their dedication to the music they love, the group has been fortunate enough to perform at venues across the state, at the WCYY stage of the Old Port Festival, and has been able to fund their first full length album "Cryptomusicology". Fronted by the dynamic vocal work of Christine McCormick and Jared Wilkinson, dominated by the technical guitar proficiency of Matthew Knight and Bryant Sirois, and the rhythmic precision of bassist Dan Gilbert and drummer Cameron Lopez, Sassquatch works diligently to make believers out of their audience. Have you seen Sassquatch?
