Brown Ballerina
  • Brown Ballerina
Toni Morrison, poet, Nobel laureate, and all-around advocate for empathy, curated an art show at the Louvre in 2006. The Foreigner's Home is a documentary based on the exhibit and the conversations about "otherness" that sprung up around it. Indie Memphis will be presenting the film at 7 PM Tuesday, June 14, at the Malco Ridgeway.
Wednesday, June 20th, Indie Memphis takes part in a special program with Collage Dance Collective. "Brown Ballerina" is a short film by director Chassidy Jade about one woman's quest to dance at the highest levels of the art. Jade will be in attendance to discuss the film, and there will be performances by Shanna Wood and the Collage Dance Collective. Demand for this event has been high, so they've added a second screening.

Wednesday night at Studio on the Square, Outflix is presenting their 2007 Jury Award Winner The Gymnast, a love story by Ned Farr starring famed arealist Dreya Weber.

On Sunday at the Malco Paradiso, Turner Classic Movies presents West Side Story, the 1961 Best Picture winner which still holds the record for most Oscars claimed by a musical. Here's Rita Mareno taking control of your screen with "America".
