Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

Homecoming is the first film to explore the rural roots of African-American life. It chronicles the generations-old struggle of African Americans for land of their own, which pitted them against both the Southern white power structure and the federal agencies responsible for helping them. Director Charlene Gilbert weaves this history together with a fond portrait of her own Georgia farming family into what she calls, "A story of land and love." Dir. Charlene Gilbert, Runtime: 56 minutes  Dirt and Deeds in Mississippi uncovers the largely unknown and pivotal role played by Black landowning families in the deep South who controlled over a million acres in the 1960s. They were prepared to put their land and their lives on the line in the fight for racial equality and the right to vote in America’s most segregated and violently racist state. In the face of escalating terror, Black landowners and independent farmers provided safe havens, collateral for jail bonds, armed protection, and locations for Freedom Schools. Dir. David Shulman, Runtime: 82 minutes

Since bursting onto the cultural landscape in 2013, Laura Mvula has become one of the U.K.’s finest exports. From her Mercury Prize nominations and Mobo Award wins to her Brit Awards and Ivo Novello nods, she has found herself at the forefront of the current funk and soul revival. Taylor McFerrin is a jazz/soul/electronic musician and producer whose eclectic sound has been described by The Times as “a sliver of intricate, sun-dappled, jazz-soaked electronica.” Taylor continues to tour worldwide supporting the release of his album both as a solo act, and as a duo featuring jazz drummer prodigy Marcus Gilmore. Smooth as silk, Blue Lab Beats is musical production team that was conceived by the brilliantly funky engineers NK-OK and Mr. D.M. Raised on the rap of UK Grime, their sound would evolve into a modern jazz medley that is wholeheartedly their own.

Gill creates an intimate, surrealist space building on the formalism of her past several works (Electric Midwife, New Work for the Desert), while forging new psychologically-informed terrain through explorations of role, gathering and layering of meaning and being, and ultimately, disappearance.

New York is a skyscraper city and there is no better time to view Manhattan’s icons than after the sun sets and the lights go on. Fueled by competition and a dash of audacity, New York City is still producing one of mankind’s most remarkable skyline. NOTE** THIS TOUR SPENDS MUCH TIME INDOORS OR IN SUBWAYS AND GREAT FOR ALL WEATHER CONDITIONS. Please note they do utilize the subway on this tour so you will need $5 for subway.

Rome’s leader, Julius Caesar, is a force unlike any the city has seen. Magnetic, populist, irreverent, he seems bent on absolute power. A small band of patriots, devoted to the country’s democratic traditions, must decide how to oppose him. Shakespeare’s political masterpiece has never felt more contemporary.Runs May 23-28, May 30-June 3, June 6-13 and June 15-18.
