• Bohemian Rhapsody (Durham screening)
    Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

  • NC Latin American Film Festival: O processo | The Trial
    The 2018 NC Latin American Film Festival brings together an eclectic selection of new films from Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Spain, Uruguay, and Venezuela. Ranging from political documentaries to sci-fi psycho-sexual dramas, from essayistic and autobiographic found (and historical) footage films to irreverent comedies, this diverse constellation of works is united by their cinematic exploration of moments of transformation (the beginning and end of revolutionary armed struggle) — the moments when individuals, communities, or even nations are at crossroads of dangers and/or possibilities. The impeachment and removal from office of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff in 2016 was triggered by a corruption scandal involving, among others, her then-vice-president Michel Temer. Director Maria Augusta Ramos follows the trial against Rousseff from the point of view of her defense team. This is a courtroom drama that unfolds slowly; the appearances of the various parties gradually turn the proceedings into something akin to theater. Inside the courtroom, grand emotions are played to full effect whilst, on the other side of the doors, lobbyists and supporters pace the corridors. Meanwhile, outside, in front of Brasília’s modernist government buildings, demonstrators are chanting like a Greek chorus. Dir. Maria Augusta Ramos. Brazil. 2018. 137 min. In Portuguese with English subtitles. **Featuring Q&A with the director** After the film, let’s head over to Sushi Love at 2812 Erwin Rd #204. It is a short (5 min) drive from The Ruby.

  • Middle East Film Series: Taste of Cement
    Each morning at sunrise, Syrian workers in Lebanon climb construction sites, their hammer strokes waking the country – a country they only know from a distance, as they are banned from moving through it, or swimming in its sea. While the workers rebuild Lebanese houses, the war in Syria destroys their own homes. That war brought together director Ziad Kalthoum, who left the Syrian Army to find refuge in Lebanon, and his fellow compatriots who work in Beirut. In this city, they share feelings of being alienated, unwanted and negated by Lebanese society. At night, they move into a hole underneath the construction site: their new home. Down here, the memories of home, war and what they have left behind plague them. Together, they share the pain and fear of losing their home country while finding themselves unable to construct a life for themselves. (c. Doha Film Institute) Director's Bio: Ziad Kalthoum was born in Homs in 1981 and graduated after studies in film. He has worked as an assistant director on several films, series, and television programs, including Mohammad Malas’s Ladder to Damascus, 2013. In 2011, he directed his first short documentary, Oh My Heart, 2011, which was selected for the Carthage Film Festival. Kalthoum’s first feature-length documentary The Immortal Sergeant, 2013, deals with the schizophrenic encounters he experiences between his mandatory military service in the Syrian Army and his role as assistant director during the shooting of Ladder to Damascus. The Immortal Sergeant was screened at the Locarno Film Festival in 2014 and the Fribourg International Film Festival in 2015. Taste of Cement is his second feature. (c. arabfilmfestival.org) This screening is FREE and open to the public. In Arabic with English subtitles Running Time: 1 hr 25 mins Show time at 7:00 PM. We'll meet outside the auditorium about 15 mins before, then find seats together. Afterwards, we can grab a bite to eat at Local 22, a short drive from the venue located at 2200 W Main St. Parking Info: There is parking for White Hall on Campus Dr or nearby street parking in neighborhood on W Trinity Ave.
