|NTLive screening: Timon of Athens|
Wealthy friend to the rich and powerful, patron of the arts, ostentatious host, Timon of Athens is surrounded by free-loaders and sycophants. He vastly outspends his resources but, finding his coffers empty, reassures his loyal steward that all will be well.
When he calls upon his associates, instead of offering help, they hang him out to dry. After a final, vengeful banquet, Timon withdraws to a literal and emotional wasteland, living off roots and pouring curses on a morally bankrupt Athens.See More...

From Mao to Mozart: Isaac Stern in China
In 1979, as China re-opened its doors to the West, virtuoso Isaac Stern received an unprecedented government invitation to tour the country. This extraordinary experience became the landmark, Oscar-winning documentary From Mao to Mozart - a beautiful expression of two differing cultures brought together by the warmth and dedication of a great musician and humanitarian.
This touching short film documents Isaac Stern's return to China twenty years after his original visit. There he finds an increased involvement with Western music on the part of performers and audiences alike. Some of the children he had taught have become master musicians themselves on the international scene. A heartwarming conclusion to Isaac Stern's incredible cultural odyssey.See More...
