In the Central Asian epic Qyrq Qyz (40 Girls, pronouncedKirk Kiz”), a girl gathers 40 young female warriors to vanquish invaders, securing her clans’ freedom. Uzbek filmmaker Saodat Ismailova’s multimedia adaptation sets live performances by female reciters and instrumentalists against multiscreen video projections, with a musical score by Tashkent-based composer Dmitri Yanov-Yanovsky. Join us for a true celebration of women’s musical traditions in the Muslim world.

All Five College students are free with ID but reservations are required. Call the box office.
