About the Show
Life Itself is a prevalent theme throughout both artists' work. Topher's printmaking work depicts scenes and figures from everyday life. Within his pieces, technological effects on people and the world around them are also represented. Kristen's mixed-media drawings and paintings utilize human and botanical subjects. In her more current work, she aims to create harmony between the flora and their illustrated likenesses, via synthesis and movement. In both development and style, Kristen and Topher approach their processes with an interactive, gestural fervor, to produce highly dynamic and expressive compositions.

At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior's rise to the nation's highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans - until now. RBG is a revelatory documentary exploring Ginsburg's exceptional life and career from Betsy West and Julie Cohen, and co-produced by Storyville Films and CNN Films.

The Death of Stalin will be shown in Thalian Hall's Main Stage Theatre from Monday, May 21st, to Wednesday, May 23rd. The film will play Monday to Wednesday at 7pm with an additional screening on Wednesday at 4pm.

Don’t miss this uproarious, wickedly irreverent satire! Moscow, 1953: when tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin drops dead, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to be the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweeby Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), the wily Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), and the sadistic secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria (Simon Russell Beale). But as they bumble, brawl, and backstab their way to the top, just who is running the government? Combining palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce, this audacious comedy is a bitingly funny takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction performed to the hilt by a sparkling ensemble cast.

A Fantastic Woman will be shown in The Ruth and Bucky Stein Theatre from Monday, May 14th, to Friday, May 18th. The film will play Monday to Wednesday at 7pm with an additional screening on Wednesday at 4pm.

A Fantastic Woman is the story of Marina, a waitress and singer, and Orlando, an older man, who are in love and planning for the future. After Orlando suddenly falls ill and dies, Marina is forced to confront his family and society, and to fight again to show them who she is: complex, strong, forthright, fantastic.

The Leisure Seeker will be shown in Thalian Hall's Main Stage Theatre from Monday, May 7th, to Wednesday, May 9th. The film will play Monday to Wednesday at 7pm with an additional screening on Wednesday at 4pm.

Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren and two-time Golden Globe-winner Donald Sutherland star as a runaway couple goes on an unforgettable journey in the faithful old RV they call The Leisure Seeker. Travelling from Boston to The Ernest Hemingway Home in Key West, they recapture their passion for life and their love for each other on a road trip that provides revelation and surprise right up to the very end.

About the Show
In their exhibition "Holding on to Tradition: A View of Changing Cultures," photographer Barbara Michael and painter/photographer Evin Leek explore cultural changes in pre-war Yemen and post-war Guatemala. Through paintings, photographs, and displays of traditional clothing, these artists offer a view into the daily lives of two unique cultures. Although they are geographically distanced, both communities share a common desire to preserve fading traditions. This exhibition tells the stories of survivors, and gives insight into the challenges they face on the brink and in the aftermath of tragedy.
