  • Austin Film Society: AFS Doc Nights: Let the Fire Burn

    Using archival news coverage and interviews, first-time filmmaker Osder revisits the horrifying event that occurred in Philadelphia in May 1985 during which the city's government, police, and fire departments ended an armed standoff with the radical vegan, back-to-nature, mostly African-American organization called MOVE. Several incendiary bombs were dropped from a police helicopter, an entire city block burned to the ground, and 11 people died in the conflagration. See "A Not-So-Sunny Philadelphia," Feb. 7, for more on thew film.

    7:30PM, AFS Cinema, 6406 N I-35, #3100

  • A Strange Object: Misadventure

    The local literary powerhouse celebrates its second book release with a sneak peek a week before the thing – Nicholas Grider's debut collection of short stories – even comes out. Part of the fun is that dozens of literati will be there to read a single sentence from Grider's short-short "Millions of Americans are Strange," and another part is that the event's held in Big Medium's Canopy gallery, thus surrounded by PrintAustin's gorgeous "The Contemporary Print" exhibition. We reckon this is gonna be a hella good time. Tue., Feb. 11, 7pm.

    Canopy, 916 Springdale
