Music From the Big House

Tuesday, Sept. 23 and Wednesday, Sept. 24

Presented by Weird Harold's 

Rita Chiarelli, an award-winning recording artist, takes a pilgrimage to the birthplace of the blues ... Louisiana State Maximum Security Penitentiary, also known as Angola Prison. She never imagined her love for the blues would lead her to a collaborative jailhouse performance with inmates serving life sentences for murder, rape and armed robbery. Music has given these inmates something to live for behind the bars of what was once the bloodiest prison in America. Steeped with hope, these remarkable voices guide us on a journey of men on a quest for forgiveness.



B.B. King: The Life of Riley

Thursday, Sept. 25 and Friday, Sept. 26 

Narrated by Morgan Freeman, “B.B. King: The Life of Riley” features the legendary bluesman and guitarists opening up about his very difficult childhood and explaining how his early struggles helped shape his musical output.



Faith Connections

2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 21 and 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 30

Filmmaker Pan Nalin travels to the Kumbh Mela, one of the world's most extraordinary religious events. There, he encounters remarkable men of mind and meditation, some facing an inextricable dilemma: to embrace the world or to renounce it. “Faith Connections” explores such diverse and deeply moving stories such as those of a young runaway, a Sadhu, a mother desperately looking for her lost son, a yogi who is raising an abandoned baby and an ascetic who keeps his calm by smoking cannabis – all connected by one faith against the spectacular display of devotion.
