Sigh….was it just me or was it kinda extra hot today?  And yesterday.  Oh, and the day before that.  And I just saw on the weather forecast that the next couple days are expected to be the same.   *Le sigh*  Being a resident of the Coachella Valley during the summer isn’t always fabulous…in fact, some times are just flat-out hard.  One of my favorite ways to avoid the heat, and the painful reality that often comes with it, is by leaving it all behind (or outside) as I relax in the theater and drift off to foreign lands through stories told over the silver screen.  In the theater is where you can sink deep into your seat, soak up the air conditioning and travel to far-a-way lands all while watching a fantastic foreign film.  This Thursday, the Palm Springs Art Museum invites you to join them on a voyage to Serbia via The Parade.  

Don’t get left behind, details below:

Synopsis:
A group of gay activists in Belgrade strikes a tense alliance with Limun, a Serbian crime boss, whose fiancée demands an extravagant wedding that only struggling gay theater director Mirko and his friends can provide. In exchange, macho Limun reluctantly agrees to provide security for the group’s Pride parade. It’s a tall order: previous attempts to march met with mass violence from right-wing skinheads. When Limun’s gang balks at the assignment, he recruits a band of former Balkan war combatants, now dear friends, who will stand up to the aggressors Seven Samurai style, in this rollickingly shrewd and humane comedic take on a vital human rights issue.
