Welcome to Shelbyville

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

Go to Colorado College ( 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
