Welcome to Shelbyville

When: Thu., May 5, 6 & 8 p.m. 2011

Go to Colorado College (coloradocollege.edu) today to be carried away via documentary film to two exotic pockets of America. From your chair in the W.E.S. Room (902 N. Cascade Ave.) at 2 p.m., visit a lesbian New York subculture in The Aggressives. Daniel Peddle documents five years in the lives of six women who assume traditionally masculine roles and compete in predominantly African-American drag balls. Next, catch Welcome to Shelbyville at 6 or 8 p.m. at the Cornerstone Arts Center (825 N. Cascade Ave.). This film by Kim Snyder shows the integration process a conservative Tennessee town undergoes when an influx of Latinos and Somalian refugees raises concerns about jobs, safety and religious practices. Both films are free. — Eric Calder
