YERMA (NATIONAL THEATRE)

Film

The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece. The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times) and ‘stunning, searing, unmissable’ (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as ‘spellbinding’ (The Evening Standard), ‘astonishing’ (iNews) and ‘devastatingly powerful’ (The Daily Telegraph). Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax.

THE SYMBOL OF THE UNCONQUERED / TWO-GUN MAN FROM HARLEM

Film

Professor Michael Johnson - author of "Hoo-Doo Cowboys and Bronze Buckaroos", who brings conceptions of the African American West starting with Oscar Micheaux’s 1920 silent The Symbol of the Unconquered + Herb Jeffries in Two-Gun Man from Harlem. The Symbol of the Unconquered: Directed by Oscar Micheaux and designed especially for black audiences, this silent romance flirts with the notion of miscegenation -- the hatred of inter-racial relations. The trouble begins when a dark-skinned black finds himself avoiding the affections of a light-skinned woman because he thinks she is white. It takes quite a bit of convincing for her to prove him wrong. Two-Gun Man from Harlem:Bob Blake is a ranch foreman falsely accused of killing his boss, John Steele (Tom Southern) after spurning the man's flirtatious wife, Ruth (Mae Turner. Returning from a stay in New York's Harlem, Bob returns West in the guise of the Deacon, a former preacher turned killer and Bob's look-alike.
