    Yared Zeleke’s remarkable feature debut tells the story of young Ephraim, a half-Jewish, Ethiopian boy who is sent by his father to live among distant relatives after his mother’s death. Ephraim uses his cooking skills to carve out a place among his cousins, but when his uncle decides that his beloved sheep must be sacrificed for the next religious feast, he will do anything to save the animal and return home.

    Drawing amazing performances from his cast of professional and non-professional actors, first time filmmaker Yared Zeleke tells his deceptively simple story with a refreshing honesty and naturalness. Beautifully shot against the majestic backdrop of Ethiopia's southern mountains, Lamb is an affecting tale about what people will risk in order to take charge of their own destinies.

    Lamb is the first film from Ethiopia to be included in the Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival and the country’s entry for the Best Foreign Language Oscar. Highly praised in Cannes and Toronto, the film has enjoyed international press attention in the Daily Monitor in Ethiopia, the New York Times, the Guardian, as well as coverage on BBC, CNN, and other media outlets.

    Following the film, director Yared Zeleke of Ethiopia will host a discussion of the film with the audience.

    Over the course of his four-decade career, Tommy Castro has played thousands of shows to hundreds of thousands of fans, packing seats and dance floors, always leaving them screaming for more. Hailing from the San Francisco area, Castro, along with his band, The Painkillers (featuring bassist Randy McDonald, keyboardist Michael Emerson and drummer Bowen Brown), play music that is guaranteed to fire up fans and leave critics searching for new words of praise.

    METHOD TO MY MADNESS finds Tommy Castro & The Painkillers at their very best. It is an instant career highlight in a lifetime full of them. The album was recorded at Laughing Tiger Studio in San Rafael, CA and produced by Castro (his first time at the helm) using no recording studio wizardry, just the unadulterated sound of the band. Castro’s songs – he wrote or co-wrote 10 of 12 tracks – are raw, raucous and rocking. From the opening one-two punch of everyman anthems “Common Ground” and “Shine A Light” to the full-tilt energy of the title track to the searing deep soul ballad “Died And Gone To Heaven,” to the bayou rock of “Got A Lot” to the atmospheric, autobiographical “Ride” to the reinvented version of the Clarence Carter hit “I’m Qualified” to the emotional cover of B.B. King’s “Bad Luck,” Tommy Castro & The Painkillers continue to break new ground while simultaneously having an incredible amount of fun.

    Tommy Castro & The Painkillers are ready to unleash their blistering new songs on music fans everywhere.

    In 1979, James Baldwin to his literary agent described his next project, Remember This House. The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends – Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr.

    At the time of Baldwin’s death in 1987, he left behind only thirty completed pages of his manuscript.

    Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of these three leaders, Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.

    Released: 2016
    Director: Raoul Peck
    Writers: James Baldwin
    Stars: Samuel L. Jackson, James Baldwin, Dick Cavett
    Rated: PG-13
    Running Time: 93 minutes

    Since 1995, Enter The Haggis have led the charge among Celtic Folk Rock bands, delighting fans with their memorable performances, inspired songwriting, musical proficiency and high quality recordings. The Toronto-based band has released eight acclaimed studio albums, the most recent debuting at #9 on the U.S. national Billboard Heatseekers charts. Their original songs such as “One Last Drink”, “Down With The Ship” and “Gasoline” have become folk rock anthems, appearing in films such as “Goon”, “10mph” and “Addicted to Plastic”, and reaching as high as #25 on U.S. radio.

    The band’s new single, “Mrs. Elliott”, is a triumphant return to form, showcasing Enter The Haggis’ signature sound and instrumentation; bagpipes blaze over a powerhouse hard-rock rhythm section as Lewington and Buchanan trade off on lead vocals. “Mrs. Elliott” is the opening track on the band’s 20th Anniversary retrospective double album “Cheers and Echoes”, which features the band’s best loved songs and is available November 2015. The Cheers and Echoes Tour kicks off early in 2016.

    Praise for Enter The Haggis has appeared in major national publications, including The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post and Canada’s Globe and Mail. The band has also performed on national television shows like “Live With Regis and Kelly” and “Breakfast With The Arts” on A&E.
