2. R.M.N. (Romania) 21st Annual Foreign Film Festival

February 9th at 1:00 PM and 7:30 PM

Having quit his job in Germany, Matthias returns to his multi-ethnic Transylvanian village. He wishes to involve himself more in the education of his son, Rudi, left for too long in the care of his mother, Ana, and to rid the boy of the unresolved fears that have taken hold of him. He’s preoccupied with his old father, Otto, and also eager to see his ex-lover, Csilla. When a few new workers are hired at the small factory that Csilla manages, the peace of the community is disturbed, underlying fears grip the adults, and frustrations, conflicts, and passions erupt through the thin veneer of apparent understanding and calm. Award-winning director Cristian Mungiu (4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days) creates a gripping portrait of ethnic and economic resentments tearing at the fabric of a small mountain town.

4. Love (Memory Lane Improv) 

Saturday, February 10 @ 7:30 pm

Presented by Memory Lane Carroll Playback Theatre

Join Memory Lane for a funny, thought-provoking, and cathartic evening of storytelling and improvisational theatre! The art of playback theatre relies on the audience and their memories. Patrons are prompted to reflect and voluntarily share their stories related to a particular theme, whether they be happy, sad, or anywhere in between. The talented actors in Memory Lane will then stage the tale on the spot through a variety of improvisational scenes. It’s an interactive, communal experience that will make you laugh, cry, and remember!

This Valentine’s Day weekend performance asks the audience to revisit their most memorable romantic tales. From adorable meet cutes, to disastrous first dates, to grand romantic gestures, it’s going to be a date night to remember!

Lura Johnson is celebrated by critics and audiences for her insightful, emotionally impactful performances. The Washington Post describes hearing her play as “one of life’s great pleasures.” The Baltimore Sun praises her “surging expressive force… impressive bravura…” and “exceptional vitality, color, and impact.” Performing more than one hundred concerts annually as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral pianist, Lura captures, distills, and powerfully communicates the spirit and personality of the music she performs.
