CONCERT WARM-UP: YOUSSOU NDOUR - I BRING WHAT I LOVE
Youssou Ndour is the first African ever to go platin. His sensual, hip-grinding, rhythmical tributes to Islam have stirred controversy in his home country, but Ndour remains calm in his devotion to music and God. If you haven't heard Ndour's hypnotic voice, this musical documentary is a great place to begin the journey. Or you can use the screening the 2nd as a warm-up to his concert in Vega on the 4th.

GERMAN FILM NIGHT: BASED DOWN SOUTH
This moving documentary is a surprising contribution to the European immigration debate. The film chronicles the lives of a group of people who consider Germany their home, but for different reasons have taken residence in Istanbul. While politicians talk about immigrants who refuse to integrate into European society Bülent, Fatos and Murat have created a surrogate Germany in the heart of Turkey. The director will give a talk about her film afterwards.
