  • Jul 8, 2010 from 4:00pm to 6:00pm
  • Location: East State Park - Brooklyn
  • Description: Azur & Asmar is the story of two boys raised as brothers. Blonde, blue-eyed, white-skinned Azur and black-haired, brown-eyed, dark-skinned Asmar are lovingly cared for by Asmar's gentle mother, who tells them magical stories of her faraway homeland and of the beautiful, imprisoned Djinn Fairy waiting to be set free. Time passes, and one day Azur's father, the master of the house, provokes a brutal separation. Azur is sent away to study, while Asmar and his mother are driven out, homeless and penniless. Years later, as a young adult, Azur remains haunted by memories of the sunny land of his nanny, and sets sail south across the high seas to find the country of his dreams. Arriving as an immigrant in a strange land, Azur is rejected by everyone he meets on account of his "unlucky" blue eyes, until finally he resolved never to open those eyes again. The once-beautiful child clad in gold is reduced to a blind beggar. Yet, blind though he is, little by little and step by step, he discovers

  • Free screening of HOME by Yann Arthus-Bertrand in Central Park

  • Jun 7, 2009 from 4:30pm to 6:00pm
  • Location: Central Park
  • Description: HOME Directed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, 90 Minutes, France 2009. Narrated by Glenn Close. In English. The movie is a collection of unique aerial footage from over 50 countries, which will try to show the state of the planet in natural and urban areas with the goal of inciting people to act. "Home is a film with a message that sets out to shift people's perceptions, make us aware of the tectonic movements at work and incite us to act. Although there is a general trend in our societies towards an awareness of ecological issues, concrete action is still too little, too slow - which constitutes in some ways the creed of the movie: It's to late to be pessimist" Denis Carot, Producer. Sunday, June 7 around 8.30pm @ Central Park - 79th Street and 5th Avenue. In the United States, HOME will be broadcast in the US on June 5th at 9pm ET/PT exclusively on the National Geographic Channel, as part of the film's worldwide premiere in conjunction with World Environment Day June 5 th and can be vi
