1 FILM
THE MARCHING KING
Selma is a touching drama of protest, courage and equality, which has surprised the cinema industry by joining in late for the race to the Oscars. The film tells the story of Martin Luther King, Jr. and his fight for equal voting rights for all via an epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, in 1965.

2 SINISTER FATE
In the horror/comedy film The Voices, Jerry works at a bath factory. During the day he does everything possible to seem normal; but at night, when he gets home, he has long conversations with his evil dog and cat. When something goes terribly wrong with a beautiful woman from his factory, he tries to make things right in a series of frenzied events. With Ryan Reynolds, Anna Kendrick.

MEMORY IN FLOWERS
“Mountain of Flowers” is an exhibition of nature paintings in memory of Michael and Adam Fisch. David Harel, the creator of the exhibition, is a multidisciplinary artist, designer and respected painter.

The colorful display presents paintings of flowers and trees growing in the Jerusalem area. Curator: Galit Rossman.

6 SIMPLY SMART
A singular exhibition by artist Francesco Finizio is opening for the first time in Israel.

The exhibition “ARKPARKCRAFTRAFTCLINICCLUBPUB” combines some of the artist’s key works, along with new projects developed in Israel for the occasion. Finizio’s style is minimal by necessity. His realism is both intelligent and simple. Paradoxically, his sophistication is similar to his naivety – like a child’s game.

7 THEATER
RIVALRY BOUND TO LOSE

The play focuses on the relationship between Prof. Uberto, a true geek whose world exists solely in the lab, and his assistant, Serpina, a lovely, lively young woman. A power struggle commences, urges intensify, and the rivalry turns into love.

Friday at noon at the Jerusalem Music Center, Mishkenot Sha’ananim. For tickets, call (02) 624-1041.
