September 28 (Thursday): People for Peace - LI Peace Organizations Demo at Stony Brook 11 am to 4pm

September 29 (Friday): OLA Film Festival - La Niña Santa and La Vida es Silbar in Southampton at 6 pm
OLA - Organizacion Latino-Americana and the Parrish Art Museum present two films - free of charge Friday night starting at 6 pm.
The films are The Holy Girl(La Niña Santa) and Life is to Whistle(La Vida es Silbar) from Cuba. Both films are in Spanish with English subtitles.
The Holy Girl(2004), written and directed by Lucrecia Martel, mixes provocative, lyrical themes of forbidden sexuality and redemptive faith and explores the burgeoning sexuality and religious fervor of two teenage girls. Their teen imaginations conflate the erotic, the religious, and the lurid. Artfully piecing together a mosaic of nuanced and small moments, Director Martel creates a potent and specific portrait of adolescent life. The film is rated R and runs 106 minutes.
In the tradition of great Cuban films such as The Buena Vista Social Club, and Strawberry and Chocolate comes Life is to Whistle, an exuberant valentine to Cuba and its people. Combining surrealism, humor and insightful drama, Life Is To Whistle alternates between the romantic mishaps of three troubled people living in Havana: Mariana, a lusty young ballerina who takes a soon-to-be regrettable vow of chastity to land a coveted role; hunky musician Elpidio, a modern-day buccaneer who steals the wallets and the hearts of visiting tourists; and Julia, a sensitive social worker who literally faints at the very mention of the word sex. As they converge towards a momentous finale, the three lost souls interlock while reaching towards reconciliation, inclusion and healing. A magical blend of intriguing visuals and powerful music, Life is To Whistle is a charming life-affirming film about the ever-present search for happiness. Directed by Fernando Perez, the film runs 106 minutes and is not rated.
