Open: 09/05/18- Close: 09/30/18 HOAXOCAUST!
What roles should past horrors play in defining ourselves, our religious views, or even our politics? Is there such a thing as a contemporary Jewish identity independent of the Holocaust? Should there be? What if the Holocaust had never happened? Mahmoud Abbas has said it.  Poland has said it. Some people currently running for our Congress and in our President's coalition have said it.  If the Holocaust didn’t happen… what did? Join writer/performer Barry Levey on an around-the-world adventure as he tracks down deniers from Illinois to Iran, meets engineers and ex-presidents, and dodges a brother in Hungary and a boyfriend back home on a journey to discover the shocking truth.

Open: 09/19/18- Close: 10/07/18 YOU WOULDN'T EXPECT
You Wouldn’t Expect unfolds at a local Eugenics office in 1960’s North Carolina where we see the cat-and-mouse workings of the two women who work there.  Here, four African-American woman are pressured to be sterilized, part of a racist practice sanctioned by our government for over a decade.  We are also brought to the squalid shack of a pedophile father angling to get his daughter “fixed” so that he won’t have to deal with outcome of his actions, the offspring. The North Carolina Board enabled county departments of public welfare to petition the Board to sterilize their clients. The majority of these sterilizations were coerced, and academic sources have observed that this was not only an ableist and classist project but also a racist one.
