Born with an adult’s intelligence, Oskar throws himself down a flight of stairs at age 3 to stunt his growth in protest at the crazy hypocrisy of the adult world, and forever after marches to the beat of his own drum.

Directors Kelly Nyks and Jared P. Scott’s 2013 film “chronicles ‘America’s leading environmentalist,’ Bill McKibben, in a David-vs-Goliath battle to fight the fossil fuel industry and change the terrifying math of the climate crisis.” This event is $5 and includes a panel discussion/Q&A and snacks/beverages.
Micah Smith’s 2013 Honor Diaries “is the first film to break the silence on ‘honor violence’ against women and girls. Honor Diaries is more than a movie, it is a movement to save women and girls from human rights abuses around the world.” This event is $5 and includes a panel discussion/Q&A and snacks/beverages.
The thinking pervert’s 50 Shades of Grey, this ritualized SM lesbian love story is at once tongue-in-cheek erotica, a high art porno pastiche, and, most perversely of all, a sincerely unsettling but genuinely moving love story worthy of Luis Bunuel himself.
