As Thanksgiving draws near along with the Black Friday launch of the holiday shopping season, Conscientious Projector offers a new documentary by local filmmakers who ask us to reconsider our gift-giving choices and their impact on our economy, both local and global. XMAS WITHOUT CHINA will screen on Thursday, Nov. 14, 7:00 p.m. at The Armory Center for the Arts. Director and All Saints member Alicia Dwyer’s captivating film follows young Chinese immigrant Tom Xia, who challenges his Arcadia, CA neighbors to refrain from purchasing gifts or products made in China. The result is an examination of the American Dream and international relations that is both serious-minded and light-hearted.
In conjunction with The Getty Center and All Saints Church, The Theatre @ Boston Court co-artistic director, Jessica Kubzansky, will direct a staged reading of Nobel Laureate T.S. Eliot’s Murder in the Cathedral, Tuesday, Nov. 5, in the church at 7:00 p.m.
