6:00 PM IRC Film Festival: It Will Be Chaos It Will Be Chaos offers a personal look at the human consequences of the refugee crisis spanning the Mediterranean, as told through the stories of asylum seekers, as well as the Italian locals who cope with the influx of newcomers. The documentary highlights the story of Aregai, an Eritrean man fleeing repression and deprivation, and the journey of a Syrian mother and father, Wael and Doha, who lead their family in a perilous Mediterranean crossing. Stirring and complex, It Will Be Chaos is a harrowing look at what refugees go through when forced to escape war and terror at home. This revealing documentary highlights some of the troubling anti-immigrant populism and logistical issues they encounter after reaching the shores of Europe, which prevent them from living in freedom and safety.

Guest Speakers: Lorena Luciano and Filippo Piscopo, Directors/Producer

Admission/Cost: $15

7:00 PM Art Exhibition Reception: Farshid Bazmandegan Farshid Bazmandegan is an Iranian American visual artist working between experimental media, installation and social engagement in art.

He creates interdisciplinary site specific installations, public interventions, and photo/video documentaries tied to the history and memory of his environments. He is interested in ideas of personal and institutional expressions of the denial of access.

7:30 PM Stage: Pride and Prejudice The outspoken Elizabeth Bennet faces mounting pressure from her status-conscious mother to secure a suitable marriage. But is marriage suitable for a woman of Elizabeth's intelligence and independence? Especially when the irritating, aloof, self-involved… tall, vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aristocratic Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn. Literature's greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical, or so full of life as it does in this effervescent new adaptation. Age limit: 18+
