59E59 Theaters: "Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story"

Inspired by the true stories of two Jewish Romanian refugees coming to Canada in 1908, Old Stock is a humorously dark folktale woven together with a high-energy concert. This genre-bending music-theater hybrid starring Klezmer-folk sensation Ben Caplan is about how to love after being broken by the horrors of war. It's about refugees who get out before it's too late, and those who get out after it's too late. And it's about looking into the eyes of God.

Classics of French Cinema with Olivier Barrot: "French Cancan"

Both a rollicking musical retelling of the birth of the French Cancan and the legendary Moulin Rouge and a wise meditation on the relationship between life and art, Jean Renoir’s late masterpiece finds struggling impresario Henri Danglard trying to improve his fortunes by reviving an old dance and founding a new nightclub in Montmartre. With cameos by music-hall greats including Edith Piaf, French Cancan is an ebullient celebration of the singers and dancers of the 19th century Paris café-concert, gloriously filmed in a palette reminiscent of the Impressionists and the director’s own father Auguste Renoir.
