Film | Duty Free: Documentary (virtual)


A loving son's powerful and personal exposé of the ageism and financial insecurity facing older people in America today. Rebecca worked every day of her life as a hotel housekeeper to give her two sons, Sian-Pierre and Gabriel, every opportunity life could afford. When it was time for Sian-Pierre to go to college, she even cashed out her 401K to give him the best education possible. But when she was suddenly fired from her job at 75, Rebecca was left with nothing: no savings, no safety net, and no future job prospects. Now, Sian-Pierre is giving her back the life she sacrificed, and helping her to reclaim her future, one bucket-list adventure at a time. Q&A with the director Sian-Pierre Regis will follow.

Theater | Eugene O'Neill's A Touch of the Poet: One of His Finest Plays (virtual)


Proud and tempestuous Cornelius Melody (Con) owns a run-down inn and tavern near Boston in 1828. Laden with debt, Con clings to his tenuous identity as a landed gentleman and war hero and chastises his wife and daughter for actions that expose the family's humble Irish origins. When his daughter, Mary, falls in love with a wealthy American guest at their inn, Con's pride drives him to an explosive reckoning with his true place in the New World. Eugene O'Neill completed the play in 1942 but it was not performed until 1958, after his death. It has been produced on Broadway four times. Directed by Ciaran O'Reilly With Belle Aykroyd, Ciaran Byrne, Robert Cuccioli, Kate Forbes, Mary McCann, Andy Murray, David O'Hara, Tim Ruddy, David Sitler, and John C. Vennema

Discussion | Greyhound (2020): WWII Drama's Star Tom Hanks and Oscar-Winning Director in Conversation (virtual)


Join director Aaron Schneider, writer-star Tom Hanks, cinematographer Shelly Johnson and costume designer Julie Weiss in conversation. Moderated by Pete Hammond. In the winter of 1942, as Nazi forces march across Europe with their sights set on Great Britain, thousands of ships from North America transport men and material across the Atlantic. Passed over for promotion for years, longtime U.S. Navy officer Ernest Krause (Tom Hanks, who also penned the screenplay) finally receives his first command: leading the destroyer Keeling (code-named Greyhound), and three other escort ships to protect a convoy of 37 merchant vessels. Fast-moving German submarines known as U-boats patrol the waters, brutally enforcing a German blockade. Although the convoy receives anti-submarine air cover when within flying range of American and British air force bases, for a terrifying five-day stretch known as the "Black Pit," Krause and his men are on their own against U-boats determined to sink the destroyer and the ships it is assigned to protect.
