"A Klingon Christmas Carol"

It was inevitable. Coming to the Art Academy of Cincinnati is the debut performance of A Klingon Christmas Carol. Dickens’ tale is told in a distinctly Star Trek way, performed all in the Klingon language with opera-esque supertitles for those unfamiliar with their verbiage. Jim Stump welcomes director Mike Hall and actor Donald Volpenhein for a preview of this unique holiday presentation.

DVD's for your holiday giving

With Christmas gift time just around the corner, give some thought to presenting that special film buff in your life with a DVD or Blu-Ray box set to match his or her tastes and interests. It’s possible to find box sets of just about anything that’s been committed to film. There are sets of animated works for kids; sets of TV shows from the early 1950s through just last season; and sets of films by genre, actor, or director. If you’re into the cinematic equivalent of self-flagellation, there’s even a box set of all of the Police Academy movies.

Movie Review: Lunafest festival at The Carnegie

It’s always an annual treat when Cincinnati World Cinema brings in the current Lunafest collection. This long-running series of short films by and about women is an excellent way for budding filmmakers to get noticed, and also do some good in the process. As always, a portion of the proceeds from these showings will go to the national Breast Cancer Fund, and locally, to the Eva G. Farris Education Center in Covington.
