7:00 PM Film: Nureyev This striking documentary from BAFTA-nominated directors Jacqui Morris and David Morris traces the extraordinary life of Rudolf Nureyev, who transcended fame in the dance world to become a pop culture icon of his time. It charts his rise from humble beginnings, to his eventual defection to the West, an event that shocked the world. The film features never-before-seen footage and contextualizes not just the man, but also the times in which he lived, discussing the politically charged divide between Russia and the West and the critical role that Nureyev played as a cultural and global phenomenon. A quarter of a century after Nureyev's death, his story has never been more relevant: his defection to the West is symbolic as Russia and the West struggle once more to reconcile conflicting values. As the Russian government's attitude towards homosexuality is seen as medieval in its archaism, Nureyev's unapologetic openness about his sexuality over half a century ago can be seen for the act of trailblazing bravery it truly was. Having left a legacy in the dance world stemming from Mikhail Baryshnikov to the current era of Marcelo Gomes, Carlos Acosta and Sergei Polunin, it is telling that Nureyev is still widely considered the finest male ballet dancer ever to grace the stage.

Admission/Cost: $15

8:00 PM Film: Bomb, A Love Story Persian Cultural Center and Ka Farhangi Iranian proudly present the screening of Bomb, A Love Story. The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with Director and actor Payman Maadi. This film is in Persian language and has English subtitles.

Synopsis: It's 1988 and, at the height of the Iran-Iraq War, Tehran is bombed relentlessly. The days that pass are full of foreboding, and yet, love, affection, hope and life itself manage to sweep away the fear of death from those surrounded by it. Love may often be difficult to comprehend, but death is a horrible certitude. 'Bomb, A Love Story' shows how, even when faced with the darkness of death, love and hope will find a way.
