GA Voice - - Outspoken -

The Auburn Av­enue Re­search Li­brary, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Counter Nar­ra­tive Project, is host­ing “Mar­lon Riggs at 60: A Ret­ro­spec­tive,” hon­or­ing the legacy of ac­tivist and film­maker Mar­lon Riggs. A cham­pion of marginal­ized com­mu­ni­ties, Riggs’ crit­i­cally ac­claimed films un­flinch­ingly speak truth to power on con­tro­ver­sial themes of Amer­i­can iden­tity – par­tic­u­larly as they re­late to the black ex­pe­ri­ence in the United States. Fol­low­ing a screen­ing of “Tongues Un­tied,” which in­ti­mately ex­plores the in­te­rior lives of gay black men via a com­pelling fu­sion of per­sonal nar­ra­tive with col­lec­tive mem­ory, will be a fa­cil­i­tated post-screen­ing dis­cus­sion. 7 p.m., Auburn Av­enue Re­search Li­brary, 101 Auburn Ave., At­lanta, GA 30303, www.af­pls.org/aarl At­lanta Bal­let’s ver­sion of David Bint­ley’s “Carmina Bu­rana” – an “every­man” story that fol­lows three sem­i­nar­i­ans as they re­ject their faith and ex­plore the plea­sures of the flesh, in­clud­ing lust, love, greed and glut­tony – opens tonight at 8 p.m. and runs through Feb. 12, Cobb En­ergy Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre, 2800 Cobb Gal­le­ria Park­way, At­lanta, GA 30339, www.cobben­er­gy­cen­tre.com
