Halt the irksome studying of the sciences for a weekend of culture.
Begin in Africa (no, not by actually going there) with Mother of George a film with a Nigerian culture motif where a woman struggles to conceive a child, and with mounting pressure from her oppressive mother-in-law, she must take drastic measures to save her marriage; the last day to view the film is Thursday, (9/26) at BAM, students tickets are $9. Since you’re a world culture aficionado you won’t be tired for a trip East to experience Brooklyn Looks East, a festival of Eastern inspired arts by Brooklyn based artists. This Saturday, (9/28. 8 PM, tickets $20) the festival will feature art forms like Raga music and classical Indian dance produced by the Delhi Dance Theater.
UPDATE: Mother of George can also been seen at Angelika New York
