9:30 AM Talk: The Challenge of Unity and Diversity Within Islam The Rev. Daren Erisman earned a Ph.D. in Systematic and Philosophical Theology, and an M.A. in Islamic Studies. He is an expert in Christian-Muslim relationships and will explain "The One and the Many: The Challenge of Unity and Diversity Within Islam." The Rev. Erisman engages the question of how a diverse religion, spanning the world with 1.6 billion adherents, addresses the challenges of modern globalization and modern extremism. Dr. Erisman explains how the heart of the Islamic religion, tawhid, asserting the unity of God, guides and challenges contemporary Muslims to make sense of a quickly changing world involving multiple cultures and contexts. This talk addresses the real diversity within Islam and the fundamental desire by Muslims to live out tawhid both personally and communally. Learn some of the key concepts that are often ignored or misunderstood by the media and by some forms of modern Islamic extremism. Rev. Erisman will intersperse his talk with stories and many pictures of his missions into Iraq, Afghanistan, and Africa.

7:30 PM Italian Film: Le Confessioni The great Toni Servillo plays a robed monk with a trick up his sleeve in Roberto Andò's thriller. Amid the European financial crisis, a cabal of finance leaders from the G8 countries has gathered in a posh German hotel to hash things out. Servillo's Roberto Salus is a guest of honour, and on his first night there he hears the confession of International Monetary Fund head Daniel Roché (Daniel Auteuil). When this bigwig is found dead by suicide the next morning, the intrigue begins: Why did he kill himself? What secrets did he divulge to Salus? Did Salus capture them with the digital recorder he's been seen carrying?

Mystery meets satire as the film unfolds, mocking the venality of the super-rich and the so-called experts that serve them. The dialogue is witty and urbane, the setting is sumptuous in its luxury and the cast is delectable. Servillo and Auteuil are superb, as usual, and they share the screen with pros like Lambert Wilson and Connie Nielsen. Equal parts Agatha Christie and Occupy, this is a congenial film with a sharp sting in its tail.

Admission/Cost: $8 - $12
