Literary Tuesdays and Fridays screening of Volver

Tuesday Literary Night
September 30

David Lawton trained as an actor at Boston University, and was a Guest Artist in the graduate playwriting classes taught there by Nobel Laureate poet, Derek Walcott. He has acted and has had plays produced Off-Broadway. His performance poetry is a synthesis of these experiences. His poem Johnny Cash is in the forthcoming Americana anthology from Sacred Fools Press. He will be reading with Thomas who has been consuming nothing but poetry and cup-o-noodles, and he hopes to evolve into prose and ronzoni.

Penelope Cruz in Pedro Almodovar's VOLVER (2006), screening Friday, October 3, at LaGuardia Performing Arts Center in Long Island City, co-presented by Museum of the Moving Image as part of the monthly series "World Cinema Showcase."

Friday, October 3, 7:00 p.m.

Spain, 2006, 121 mins. Directed by Pedro Almodovar. With Penelope Cruz. In the latest and perhaps finest film by Spain’s top filmmaker, three generations of women survive wind, fire, madness, superstition—even death—through a combination of decency, deception, and boundless vitality. Penelope Cruz earned an Academy Award nomination for her role as a single mother who opens her own restaurant…and who hides a dark secret.
