"Son of Babylon" screens Thursday night at the National Gallery of Art.

(May 12) THE ROAD TO BABYLON Shortly after the fall of Saddam Hussein, an Iraqi boy sets out in search of his long-lost father in "Son of Babylon", screening Thursday night at the National Gallery of Art. The film was shot in war torn Northern Iraq with a nonprofessional cast under often-treacherous conditions. Director Mohamed Al-Daradji will be on hand to talk about the experience.

(May 13) A LASTING LUNCH If you haven't made any lunch plans for Friday Northwest Washington's St. Albans Episcopal Church is closing out its Arts@Midday season with an afternoon of song. Vocalist Joan Phalen is accompanied by her friends on piano and accordion for selections by Piaf, Poulenc, and Brel.

(May 13) THE MOVEMENT AT THE EMPORIUM Emma's revolution brings folk rock to Joe's Movement Emporium in Mt. Rainier Friday night. The duo packs plenty of calls for social justice into its muscular acoustic melodies.
