Disneynature's new True Life Adventure film "Born In China" takes an epic journey into the wilds of China where few people have ever ventured. Following the stories of three animal families, the film transports audiences to some of the most extreme environments on Earth to witness some of the most intimate moments ever captured in a nature film. A doting panda bear mother guides her growing baby as she begins to explore and seek independence. A two-year-old golden monkey who feels displaced by his new baby sister joins up with a group of free-spirited outcasts. And a mother snow leopard-an elusive animal rarely caught on camera-faces the very real drama of raising her two cubs in one of the harshest and most unforgiving environments on the planet. Featuring stunning, never-before-seen imagery, the film navigates China's vast terrain-from the frigid mountains to the heart of the bamboo forest-on the wings of red-crowned cranes, seamlessly tying the extraordinary tales together

The Royal Ballet The Dream - Symphonic Variations - Marguerite and Armand three ballets

The Royal Ballet Brings It’s Celebrations Of 70 Years At The Royal Opera House To A Close With A Mixed Programme Of Works By Its Founder Choreographer Frederick Ashton.

This gorgeous mixed programmer demonstrates the great creative vision of Frederick Ashton, Founder Choreographer of The Royal Ballet. The Dream is Ashton’s adaption of Shakespeare’s riotous comedy in which a forest sprite plays havoc, armed with a love potion. Symphonic Variations was Ashton’s first work after world War II, and one of the Company’s first to be performed on the huge main stage of the Royal Opera House, in 1946. With six dancers performing a series of quartets, duets, sextets and solos to Franck’s brooding Variations symphoniques, this seminal masterpiece celebrates the pure beauty of movement. Marguerite and Armand is Ashton’s beautiful and emotional retelling of a well-known story, familiar to us all through Verdi’s opera La traviata. Ashton famously created this poignant ballet on Margot Fonteyn and Rudolph Nureyev in 1963.

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde & the Invincible Czars

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde & the Invincible Czars

AUSTIN, TX — The Invincible Czars toured all over the US last year with their silent film soundtrack to Nosferatu. Now they’re hitting the road with their new tastefully modern score for Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde performing live with the film all over the west this spring.

Released in 1920, the movie stars Drew Barrymore’s grandfather John Barrymore as both Jekyll and Hyde. Barrymore gives one of the most memorable performances of early film often portraying Mr. Hyde character simply with facial expressions and no makeup. The movie is considered by many to be the first important American horror film.

Based on the Robert Louis Stevenson’s 1886 novel, the movie tells the story of Dr. Henry Jekyll –scientist, philanthropist and all around upstanding English citizen. Jekyll’s colleague, George Carew (Brandon Hurst) invites his uptight young friend to a see the sexy Italian showgirl Miss Gina (Nita Naldi) and Dr. Jekyll’s arousal sends him on a quest to separate man’s good and evil side. Using himself as the test subject, Jekyll unleashes his own evil alter-ego: Edward Hyde. But Jekyll’s imperfect science sends the good doctor into uncontrollable alternations between his two selves that imperil his reputation, his finance and his own life.

The Invincible Czars’ soundtrack is minimal, spooky and even includes audience participation!

The line-up features Leila Henley (winds, vocals, loops, percussion), Josh Robins (guitar, sound effects, percussion), Phil Davidson (violin, organ) and the Senator of Sub-frequencies John McCane (bass guitar).

As usual, the band has incorporated bits of music from the classical realm into the score. This time they’ve arranged Eric Satie’s Gnossienne No. 1 and No. 5, an eerily beautiful but obscure Debussy piece entitled Footsteps in the Snow and Jules Massanet’s Meditation.

Just like their music, The Invincible Czars’ wardrobe complements the film and they encourage audiences to do the same. Top hats recommended!

AN EVENING WITH GEORGE SMILEY

In aid of Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors without Borders (MSF)

Captured live from London's Royal Festival Hall, join us for a celebration of one of the world’s greatest writers as he shares the secrets behind the creation of his most beloved character.

From his extraordinary Cold War novels – such as The Spy Who Came in from the Cold and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy – to his powerful descriptions of the arms trade in The Night Manager, and the War on Terror in A Most Wanted Man, the writing of John le Carré has come to define the last half century. In this one-off event, the author discusses the full breadth of his career, and reflects on the continuing story of his most famous creation, the tubby, bespectacled spy, George Smiley.

Coinciding with the publication date of his new novel, A Legacy of Spies, the event will include readings from the book by the author. The novel sees the return of some of le Carré’s most iconic Cold War characters, including George Smiley and his trusted lieutenant, Peter Guillam, as their past comes back to claim them in the present. With a rare question and answer session, this will be an unmissable opportunity to experience one of the foremost chroniclers of our age, direct and in his own words.

In support of MSF, the leading emergency medical humanitarian aid organisation, John le Carré is donating his speaker’s fee, and the producers of the live cinema broadcast, The Ink Factory, are donating their share of the profits to the charity.

Richard Eyre’s stunning new production of Bizet’s opera was the talk of the town when it was unveiled on New Year’s Eve 2009. Elīna Garanča leads the cast as the iconic gypsy of the title—a woman desired by every man but determined to remain true to herself. Roberto Alagna is Don José, the soldier who falls under her spell and sacrifices everything for her love, only to be cast aside when the toreador Escamillo (Teddy Tahu Rhodes) piques Carmen’s interest. With dances created by star choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and conducted by rising maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin, this Carmen brings every aspect of Bizet’s tale to thrilling life, from its lighthearted beginning to its inevitably tragic climax.

Caesar returns from war, all-conquering, but mutiny is rumbling through the corridors of power.

The Rome season in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre opens with the politics of spin and betrayal turning to violence.

RSC Live: Titus Andronicus

The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare’s most bloody play.

Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss, who relinquishes power but leaves Rome in disorder. Rape, cannibalism and severed body parts fill the moral void at the heart of this corrupt society.

Shakespeare’s gory revenge tragedy presents us with murder as entertainment, and, as the body count piles up, poses questions about the nature of sexuality, family, class and society.

Blanche McIntyre returns to the RSC to direct Shakespeare’s brutal revenge tragedy after her debut directing The Two Noble Kinsmen (2016).

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert is a 1994 Australian comedy-drama film written and directed by Stephan Elliott. The plot follows two drag queens played by Hugo Weaving and Guy Pearce and a transgender woman, played by Terence Stamp, as they journey across the Australian Outback from Sydney to Alice Springs in a tour bus that they have named "Priscilla", along the way encountering various groups and individuals. The film's title is a pun on the fact that in English speaking cultures, "queen" is a slang term for a drag queen or female impersonator.

The film was a surprise worldwide hit and its positive portrayal of LGBT individuals helped to introduce LGBT themes to a mainstream audience.

The film received predominantly positive reviews and won an Academy Award for Best Costume Design at the 67th Academy Awards. It was screened in the Un Certain Regard section of the 1994 Cannes Film Festival and became a cult classic in both Australia and abroad. Priscilla subsequently provided the basis for a musical, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, which opened in 2006 in Sydney before travelling to New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Canada, and New York City's Broadway.

The Destruction of Memory

The Destruction of Memory

Written, directed and produced by Tim Slade

**Based on the book THE DESTRUCTION OF MEMORY: ARCHITECTURE OF WAR by Robert Bevan.**

Over the past century, cultural destruction has wrought catastrophic results across the globe. This war against culture is not over - it's been steadily increasing.

In Syria and Iraq, the ‘cradle of civilization’, millennia of culture are being destroyed. The push to protect, salvage and rebuild has moved in step with the destruction.

Legislation and policy have played a role, but heroic individuals have fought back, risking and losing their lives to protect not just other human beings, but our cultural identity - to save the record of who we are.

Based on the book of the same name by Robert Bevan, THE DESTRUCTION OF MEMORY tells the whole story - looking not just at the ongoing actions of Daesh (ISIS) and at other contemporary situations, but revealing the decisions of the past that allowed the issue to remain hidden in the shadows for so many years.

Interviewees in the film include the Director-General of UNESCO, the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, as well as diverse and distinguished international experts, whose voices combine to address this urgent issue.

On October 8th 2014, the 20th anniversary of his 1994 crime bill, President Clinton predicted that sentencing reform would become one of the hot-button issues in 2016. “We basically took a shotgun to a problem that needed a .22,” he admitted. Over twenty years later, we’re dealing with the consequences of “tough on crime”: heavily overpopulated prisons, a dearth of educational programming and reentry services, and a recidivism rate of over 70% in California.

Chief among these problems is our treatment of juvenile offenders. While juvenile crime has steadily decreased since 1994, we’ve continued to pass tougher and tougher juvenile crime laws. In California, juveniles between the ages of 14-17 can be tried as adults and receive sentences longer than their natural life expectancy.

The message rings loud and clear: these kids are lost, defined by and no better than their worst act. But due to recent advances in brain science and a handful of Supreme Court decisions, we have started to once again see juveniles as different from adults.

In the last three years, California has passed the first two bills in three decades (the second of which we followed for this film) to decrease juvenile sentences. This movement has re-sparked a national debate over the very nature of our most violent juvenile offenders. The only group silent from the debate are the minors themselves. This film gives them a voice.

A list of juvenile sentencing reform legislation passed in California since 2012:

SB-9 (2012): Eliminates the “life without parole” sentence for juvenile offenders (except for those with special circumstances).

SB-260 (2013): Provides parole board hearings at 15 or 25-years for juvenile offenders tried as adults.

SB-261 (2015): Expanding the age of those eligible for SB-260 to 22-years old, affecting an additional 16,000 inmates.

California is a leader in sentencing reform for juveniles. This film showcases that success and the need for second chance opportunities for juvenile offenders nationwide.

Titicut Follies

Titicut Follies

The film is a stark and graphic portrayal of the conditions that existed at the State Prison for the Criminally Insane at Bridgewater, Massachusetts. TITICUT FOLLIES documents the various ways the inmates are treated by the guards, social workers and psychiatrists.

TITICUT FOLLIES is a documentary film that tells you more than you could possibly want to know — but no more than you should know — about life behind the walls of one of those institutions where we file and forget the criminal insane… A society’s treatment of the least of its citizens — and surely these are the least of ours — is perhaps the best measure of its civilization. The repulsive reality revealed in TITICUT FOLLIES forces us to contemplate our capacity for callousness.

Tyrus

Tyrus

TYRUS examines the life and work of pioneering Chinese American artist Tyrus Wong. Beginning with his arrival to the immigration detention center at Angel Island in 1919, nine year old Tyrus would overcome a life of poverty, racism, and discrimination to become a renowned painter and Hollywood sketch artist. The film will show how the quiet beauty of Tyrus's eastern influenced paintings caught the eye of Walt Disney and became the inspiration for the classic animated feature Bambi. For the next 25 years, Tyrus brought his artistry to Warner Brothers where his striking storyboards and set illustrations helped set the tone and drama for films such as The Sands of Iwo Jima, Rebel Without a Cause, William Goldman's Harper and Sam Peckinpah's The Wild Bunch. At 104, Tyrus is the oldest living Chinese American artist.
