Aelita: Queen of Mars (1924) (Live score) 90mins.
Said to be the first full-length science-fiction movie ever made, this influential film about space travel by the Soviet filmmaker Yakov Protazanov is re-imagined by avant guitarist Marc Ribot with a new score that premiered at London’s Meltdown Festival, Royal Festival Hall. In 2016, Marc re-worked his score for solo guitar, which premiered at the Museum of Modern Art in Medillin, Colombia. He will be performing solo for this screening.

“A little bit invitin’, a little bit excitin’, a little bit ignitin’ ... that’s my trademark,” proclaims an old song. And that’s the Blue Moon Cowgirls, four Washington, DC-area musicians with their own refreshing approach to country music. A shimmering trio of female voices backed by flexible acoustic instrumentation, the Blue Moon Cowgirls blend front-porch directness with neon-lit sophistication as they sing about home and highways, heaven and honkytonks, heartbreak and hope.

Our annual dance party celebrating Bob! This year, we connect with Bob Marley’s universal message of peace, acceptance, and resilience with the inspiring and astounding reggae singer Taj Weekes. Weekes a dreadlocked Rastafarian musician, bred in the Caribbean but shaped by intercontinental life experience. He is a creative, poetic singer-songwriter who fronts a dynamic reggae band named Adowa. Weekes is an unwavering, energetic humanitarian whose dedication extends beyond his song lyrics into his social activism, an activism that has culminated in his official role with the United Nations as “UNICEF Champion for Children” and his children’s charity, They Often Cry Outreach (TOCO).
