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.

It may be difficult to imagine today, but Arturo Toscanini—recognized widely as the most celebrated conductor of the twentieth century—was once one of the most famous people in the world. Like Einstein in science or Picasso in art, Toscanini (1867–1957) transcended his own field, becoming a figure of such renown that it was often impossible not to see some mention of the maestro in the daily headlines. As the Library concludes the celebration of Toscanini’s 150 year legacy, acclaimed music historian Harvey Sachs, author of the new definitive Toscanini biography, presents an afternoon program of commentary, listening, and exploration of historic musical genius.

As the rain pours down and the water keeps rising, a mother sits in a flooded basement, weeping. After her son is gunned down by police, Mary, a woman with a cracked past, finds herself paralyzed with grief. So her mother, sister, and daughter try to uplift and help her wade through the water, as she mourns. But when her tears begin to overflow, deep family secrets rise all around them. And once their painful past floats to the top, there's no telling who's going to drown. Written by Donja R. Love Directed by Saheem Ali
