Paul Barnes’s Weekly Update on What’s Happening

This week (February 23-29), CCA will be showing Perfect Days, one of the five Oscar nominees for Best International Feature, made by one of the masters of cinema Wim Wenders, starring Koji Yakusho, who won the Best Actor prize at Cannes. One critic called it “a perfect movie about cleaning public toilets.” More on that later.
 
CCA will be holding over for another week the popular, The Taste of Things. Our audiences have sworn that they can smell the fragrant food wafting off the screen and they have been swooning over the nineteenth-century romance between Juliette Binoche and Benoit Magimel.

And on Tuesday, February 27, you will be able to hear the grace notes of the South African band Ladysmith Black Mambazo that transformed the sound of Paul Simon’s album Graceland in this month’s AMPLIFIED series offering — Music is My Life.
