  3. Coming Soon: Shakespeare’s “The History of Cardenia” starring Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen

    by Jon Fusco
    image
    Shakespeare’s had a pretty busy week for a guy who’s been six feet under for nearly 400 years.  It’s long been thought—and hoped for—that in his awe-inspiring cannon of work (37 plays, plus a few hundred poems and sonnets), one might still be out there undiscovered.  While numerous frauds have been revealed to have been penned by colleagues over the years, now, at last, the play has been found.  So far, all we know is that it’s a comedy based off of an episode in Cervante’s Don Quixote. So when will the History of Cardenio be put on its feet?  Let’s just pray it’s soon enough for classical juggernauts/BFFLs Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen to sink their teeth into. Stewart as the false knight and McKellen as his simple sidekick: What could be better? Nothing. Something tells us the NEWLYWEDS would be into it,  too…

    Learn the secrets to McKellen’s genius in Acting Shakespeare, which you can watch for free here or below.

  9. On 20th Anniversary of Rwandan Genocide, Watch KINYARWANDA

    by Safana Khan

    Twenty years ago the world witnessed the grotesque Rwandan Genocide, which claimed nearly one million lives in the course of three days. The violence was a result of ethnic tensions between the Hutu and the minority Tutsi population. The perpetrators of violence did not discriminate in their carnage; they killed men, women and children. Entire families were destroyed and women were raped. Hutu who opposed killing the Tutsi were seen as traitors and killed as well. Watch this heart-wrenching film about forbidden love between a Tutsi woman and a Hutu man during a time of blind hatred:

    Imagine standing next to the man who killed your entire family. Now imagine whole-heartedly forgiving him and allowing him to coexist. Instead of seeking revenge, many Rwandans have opened their arms and hearts to those who violently altered their lives. After the genocide, the government created solidarity camps where prisoners were sent before being reintegrated into society. The film depicts these camps and the painful process of remembering the past. 

    These camps are a process of re-education and are key in the peace process, propelling Rwanda towards a brighter future. The Rwandan people have truly shown the world the power of forgiveness.
