Sábado, 9 de abril y domingo, 10 de abril a las 2: p.m.
En el Auditorio Ross

En esta popular película del 2002, inspirada en la novela de Susan Orlean El ladrón de orquídeas, cuenta la historia de Charlie Kaufman (interpretado por Nicolas Cage), un guionista de Los Ángeles que vive un periodo de crisis creativa, abrumado también por las ambiciones de su hermano gemelo Donald (también Cage). Mientras intentan adaptar la novela de Susan Orlean (interpretada por Meryl Streep), la vida de Kaufman da un giro de patética a bizarra. Las vidas de Kaufman, Orlean y John Laroche (interpretado por Chris Cooper), el coleccionista de orquídeas y protagonista de la novela, terminan extrañamente enlazadas, mientras las obsesiones personales de cada uno terminan enredadas las unas unas con las otras.

Indonesia: Gamelan Dharma Swara

March 26, 27, April 9 & 10
In Java and Bali, gamelan is the musical background to every social and cultural gathering, from religious rituals to mainstream radio broadcasts. At the core of gamelan culture is the belief that music is meant to develop and adapt its repertoire: this central idea animates the New York City-based Gamelan Dharma Swara. They are one of the most respected Balinese gamelan ensembles outside Indonesia. Their repertoire draws from classical gamelan literature and incorporates contemporary pieces specifically written for the group—a perfect example of tradition redefined by contemporary interpretation. dharmaswara.org
