Since 2009, Mayor Frank G.

Leonard Bernstein: The Power of Music
Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage
Open during regular hours
Maltz Museum
2929 Richmond Rd. Beachwood, OH 44122

Leonard Bernstein: The Power of Music is the first large-scale museum exhibition to illustrate Leonard Bernstein’s life, Jewish identity, and social activism. Audiences may be familiar with many of Bernstein’s works, notably West Side Story, but not necessarily with how he responded to the political and social crises of his day. Visitors will find an individual who expressed the restlessness, anxiety, fear, and hope of an American Jew living through World War II and the Holocaust, Vietnam, and turbulent social change—what Bernstein referred to as his “search for a solution to the 20th-century crisis of faith."

Iranian Films
4:30 and 6:30 PM
Peter B. Lewis Theater of the Cleveland Institute of Art
11610 Euclid Avenue

Seventeen short and feature length films by the late, great Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami (1940-2016) will be presented by the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque in its upcoming series “Unknown Kiarostami,” September 14 through October 20. All have been newly restored. The series focuses on works from Kiarostami’s five-decade career that have never before been distributed in the U.S., including movies made for the government-run Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults (Kanoon) in Tehran, where Kiarostami set up a filmmaking department in 1969 at the start of his career. This period of his life lasted two decades and initiated his longtime interest in children, education, and social issues. As time went on, Kiarostami infused his early “neorealist” movies with poetry, documentary, and experimental narrative structures, ultimately becoming one of the world’s most celebrated and influential moviemakers and, by the end of his life, almost an avant-garde filmmaker.

Sunday, October 20, at 4:30 pm. HOMEWORK MASHGH-E SHAB. Iran, 1989, Abbas Kiarostami. Made between two of his greatest features, Where Is the Friend’s House? and Close-Up, Abbas Kiarostami’s nonfiction movie was sparked by his own son’s scholastic problems. He interviews Iranian first- and second-graders about their homework load (a problem compounded by illiterate parents) and also about their school’s emphasis on punishment rather than encouragement. The result is lyrical, moving, and quietly radical. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. Restored DCP. 78 min.

Sunday, October 20, at 6:30 pm. SHIRIN. Iran, 2008, Abbas Kiarostami. In Abbas Kiarostami’s unique study of spectatorship, the expressive faces of over 100 prominent Iranian actresses (and France’s Juliette Binoche) react to a narrated film based on the 800-year-old Persian love story of Princess Shirin. Or so it seems. In reality, Kiarostami shot the actresses as they peered at a piece of cardboard and followed his instructions to recall past loves and emote. He later married their expressions to the non-existent movie we hear but never see. “[Recalls] the aesthetic and emotional candor of Dreyer’s The Passion of Joan of Arc.” ?Time Out Film Guide. Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. Restored DCP. 97 min.

Admission to each program is $10; $7 for Cinematheque members, CIA and Cleveland State University I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under. Free parking for filmgoers is available in Lot 73 and the Cleveland Institute of Art Annex Lot, both off E. 117th Street south of Euclid Avenue. For further information, visit cia.edu/cinematheque, send an email to cinema@cia.edu, or call John Ewing or Genevieve Schwartz at 216.421.7450.

Lalit Subramanian
4:30 PM
Milton and Tamar Maltz Performing Arts Center
1855 Ansel Rd,

“Music of South India” is a performance rooted in the rich tradition of South Indian Classical Music, also known as Carnatic Music. This form of Classical Music is an expression of the ancient heritage of India through its rich repertoire of compositions created over many centuries. Although the origin of the grammar of Carnatic Music can be traced back to as long ago as 200 BCE through ancient texts, this form of music has evolved over many centuries through contribution by many great composers and performers and has thus exists today as a beautiful confluence of the historical, the ancestral, and the personal. Carnatic Music has two main aspects, namely, composed music and improvised music. A typical Carnatic Music concert is an aesthetic synthesis of these two aspects, keeping the performance fresh, dynamic, and exciting. “Music of South India” will take the audience through a journey of the sounds of Carnatic Music, comprising of the performance of a repertoire of various old and new Carnatic compositions, as well as the application of extempore improvisation in the context of these compositions. This will be performed by a typical Carnatic Music ensemble consisting of a vocalist, a violinist, and a drummer. The performance will be peppered with interesting commentary on each piece.

The Mystical Arts of Tibet
7:30 PM -- 9:00 PM
Milton and Tamar Maltz Performing Arts Center
1855 Ansel Rd,

Ancient societies throughout the world conceived that ritual performance of sacred music and dance at auspicious times establishes communication with the higher powers of good and brings about healing on environmental, social and personal levels. In Tibet, whenever a monastery celebrated a spiritual festival, people from the surrounding villages and nomadic tribes would assemble in the monastery’s courtyard for the three or four days of sacred music and dance. The Mystical Arts of Tibet tour is designed as a development of this tradition. The presentation has been streamlined in such a way as to maintain the essential integrity and purpose of each of the individual pieces in the celebration. Tibetan sacred music and dance was not composed in a mundane manner. Rather, each piece was born centuries ago from a mystical visionary experience of a great saint or sage and has been transmitted from generation to generation in an unbroken oral legacy.
