Paul Barnes’s Weekly Update on What’s Happening

This week (April 19-25), CCA is showing Limbo in which a detective investigates a 20-year-old homicide of an Aboriginal woman. Critics have called it “a superb movie with stunning cinematography” and “a tough, muscular film with the grit of crime, but a heartbeat of compassion.” 

Unique Italian director Alice Rohrwacher, of Happy as Lazaro fame, opens at CCA with her new film La Chimera that involves a lost romance, Etruscan artifact grave robbers, Isabella Rossellini as a medium, and rising star Josh O’Conner (Emmy-winner for The Crown).
Riddle of Fire, an American indie debut by Weston Razzoli, will also open this week. One critic wrote, “There is a charm to Riddle of Fire that is not often seen in these types of films. Instead of dealing with the angst and turmoil of growing up, the movie focuses on the adventure and joy.”

And continuing our desire to bring newly available restorations to our CCA audience, we will be screening a 4K restoration of the famed documentary about calypso music, One Hand Don’t Clap. The 1991 film has been described as “a hot and spicy musical celebration.”
Finally, on Tuesday, April 23 at 6pm, it’s time for the next AMPLIFIED – CCA’s series of music documentaries – with a screening of The Music of Strangers: YoYo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble. In addition to screening the movie, we will also be showing a special pre-recorded interview (done just for CCA!) with violinist Colin Jacobsen, a founding member of the Silk Road Ensemble and the Artistic Director of Santa Fe Pro Musica.
