Special FREE Movie Night “For the Love of Tango”
Filmmaker Susan Kucera captures the story of a blind man’s journey into the intoxicating, complex world of Argentine tango and explores the impact tango has had on the lives of professional tango dancers, teachers, performers, and enthusiasts. In the end, beyond the fancy footwork, beautiful dresses, high heels, and dazzling performances, tango is about discovering of oneself.
Shot on location in the United States (Hawai‘i, New York, Seattle, Portland), the Czech Republic, Germany, and Canada, For the Love of Tango reveals how we can communicate with one another beyond all barriers of race, language, age or physical limitations.

Call of Dudy – Bohemian Bagpipes Across Borders
Bagpipes are generally associated with the Celtic Fringe of Europe, but one of the richest and ethnically diverse bagpipe traditions can be found in Central Europe. In the Czech Lands and in Neighboring Bavaria this traditions once became marginalized and almost disregarded. Yet this historical musical form has survived and even managed to renew itself, to develop further on a regional scale – crossing national and linguistic borders. Call of Dudy captures the people and places which are keeping this centuries – old tradition alive today for future generations.

Three Wishes for Cinderella
“Three Wishes for Cinderella” (1973) serves roughly the same societal role for Europe as “It’s a Wonderful Life” does in the US. It’s a magical, feel-good fantasy that brings together the community and appeals to every generation. The film is a perennial classic. In the Czech Republic it is a national landmark; part of the cultural landscape. The film is virtually a religion and played on television ritualistically on Christmas.
