Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Le Scaphandre et Le Papillon / The Diving Bell & The Butterfly
(2007, dir. Julian Schnabel, 112 mins, France)
When Elle France editor Jean-Dominique Bauby suffers a stroke at age 43, he wakes to find his entire body paralyzed, except his left eye. Using a series of eye blinks, Bauby dictates a memoir that describes his experience—from the torment of being trapped inside his body to the frustrations of maintaining his old relationships and adjusting to the new. Based on Bauby’s memoir, the film won a Best Director award at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for four Oscars. In French with English subtitles.
