New arrivals for the week of April 13, 2010
Pirate Radio Afghan Star Black Balloon

Greetings everyone,

Hollywood must not want to compete with Ebertfest -- there was only one blockbuster released this week (again): "Pirate Radio" (w/Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Bill Nighy). We did get a couple of movies a few of you have been waiting for. "Afghan Star" is a documentary about two women competing on a TV show in Afghanistan similar to"Pop Idol" (UK) or "American Idol" (US). "The Black Balloon", an Australian film nominated for 23 awards winning 16, is a coming-of-age film about a boy and his autistic brother. Rounding out last week's "Lord of the Rings" trilogy on BluRay we got the Ralph Bakshi's 1978 animated "Lord of the Rings" on BluRay-- now you can have a proper middle-earth festival.

Local Screenings -- Parkland College will be showing Justine Nagan's "Typeface" on Wednesday, April 21st at 7:00 with a panel discussion afterward. More information can be found on their website. Also, starting tomorrow, The Art Theater and C-U Confidential will be holding the New Art Film Festival of local and independent film (Thursday, April 15th through Tuesday, April 20th). More info can be found on their website and/or Facebook.

C-U Quilts for Haiti -- There's just over a day left to get your bids in for the locally made C-U Quits for Haiti/Hooeybatiks quilt on eBay. C-U Quilts for Haiti is also selling raffle tickets for six other locally made quilts. All proceed go to Doctors Without Borders. The auction ends on April 15th and the raffle will be held at a reception at Wind, Water and Light (Lincoln Square) on the 16th. For more information and pictures of the quilts have a look at their web page (www.hooeybatiks.com/haiti.html).

Cycling -- The Illini 4000 continue to train and fund-raise in advance of their 4th annual ride across America. This year they have set their goal at $100,000. Follow their progress on their website (www.illini4000.org). May is Bike Month and Champaign County Bikes is holding C-U Bike to Work Day on Tuesday, May 4. More information is available on their website: www.ChampaignCountyBikes.org

Have a great week...

Geoff (and all the other Rentertarians)
