Iyengar: The Man, Yoga, and the Student's Journey
Iyengar: The Man, Yoga, and the Student's Journey(2019)
Go to https://gathr.us/screening/28620 to purchase tickets or click on the trailer link to be sent to the ticketing page. Tickets are not available for sale on our website. Iyengar Yoga is universally respected, practiced worldwide and credited by multitudes as life-transforming, but because its founder B. K. S. Iyengar is famously reclusive, little is known about the man who invented this powerful practice... until now! Thanks to exclusive, intimate access to this legendary yogi, Jake Clennell's documentary Iyengar: The Man, Yoga, The Student’s Journey is able to showcase the profound spirituality embedded in his practice, which has led religions around the world including Catholicism and Islam to incorporate Iyengar Yoga into their ritual observances. Best of all is the extraordinary time spent with Iyengar, himself, including in the studio where he rules alternately with an iron fist and a velvet touch while demonstrating feats of flexibility and discipline that would be extraordinary if carried out by an Olympic gymnast, let alone a man in his 90s. This documentary is required viewing for anyone with an interest in yoga, wellness, spirituality, or the connection of mind and body.

Orphée Et Euricide
Orphée Et Euricide(2019)
Orphée et Euridice
Christopher Willibald Gluck
From Teatro alla Scala, Milan, 2018

Opera in 3 Acts. 
Run time: 129 min.
Libretto by Pierre-Louis Moline, after the play Orphée et Euricide by Ranieri de’ Calzabigi
Sung in French with English subtitles

Based on the myth of Orpheus, Orphée et Euridice is of the genre azione teatrale, meaning an opera on a mythological subject with choruses and dancing.

Juan Diego Flórez dazzled audienced and critics alike when he played the virtuoso role of Orphée in La Scala’s first ever staging of Gluck’s opera in its French version: “Juan Diego Flórez delivered a lesson in style. His tone is darker and his projection more self-effacing than in the past, but class is permanent. His agility and legato are utterly thrilling. The ovations were never-ending.” (Corriere della sera)
