"Lovers & Friends" tackles the complexities of building meaningful relationships in just 10 minutes Wednesday and a congressman entices a friend to dress up as a superhero to save a public housing complex Thursday in "The Making of a Modern Folk Hero". All of the events take place at Source on 14th Street in Northwest Washington.
