Since 1993, the Ann Arbor Polish Film Festival has been an annual cultural event, presenting a broad range of narrative forms and visual styles in contemporary Polish cinema. It returns this Saturday at The Michigan Theater for two days. Tickets are $6.75 with student ID.
At the podium
Nadine Strossen, the current president of the American Civil Liberties Union, will give her lecture “Defending Freedom: Even for the Thoughts We Hate” at Honigman Auditorium in the Law School tomorrow at 4 p.m. She was also named one of the 100 most influential lawyers in America. The event is free.
Sometimes called “the Brazilian Bob Dylan,” Grammy-award winning Caetano Veloso is coming to Hill Auditorium tomorrow at 8 p.m. He is a pioneer of tropicalismo, a subgenre that conflates Brazilian pop and rock’n’roll into a sound both psychedelic and multinational. Tickets are $10-58.
At the Pig
To promote their critically acclaimed debut album Mirrored, experimental rock band Battles will be playing The Blind Pig tomorrow. Come prepared to feel the noise – their live shows are known to be particularly dynamic. Tickets are $15.
