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.

Purchase tickets at www.imamuseum.org, by calling 317-955-2339 or at the door.

Visiting filmmaker Julie Dash (Daughters of the Dust) will introduce Black Orpheus and explain its influence on her own films.

Black Orpheus (1959, dir. Marcel Camus, 107 mins, PG) and William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet (1996, dir. Baz Luhrmann, 120 mins, PG-13)
These two films share vivid, heart-pounding art direction, a theme of young love doomed, and classical literary origins. Black Orpheus reinterprets the Greek myth of Orpheus and celebrates the culture of Brazil. Orpheus is a streetcar conductor and star Carnival dancer betrothed to one, but in love with another. Luhrmann’s psychedelic, MTV-style Romeo + Juliet delights with an over-the-top sensibility. Black Orpheus won the Palme d’Or at the 1959 Cannes Film Festival; Romeo + Juliet received an Oscar nomination for Art Direction.
