André Leon Talley in conversation with Ruben and Isabel Toledo

Wed., May 24, 6 p.m.

Husband-and-wife duo Ruben and Isabel Toledo will join fashion icon Andre Leon Talley to publicly discuss a collaboration with the Detroit Film Theatre. Talley, who will lead the conversation, will probe the couple’s lifelong relationship as well as their partnership in art and design. The conversation will offer entry into the Toledos lives as two of the world’s most talented artists who work synergistically with one another. For example, Isabel is the muse to her husband’s work as a sculptor, while Ruben’s surreal work brings life and unconventionality to his wife’s more industrial work. Free

Cinema Novo

Wed., May 24, 7:30 p.m.

A genre and movement in filmmaking focused on social equality and intellectualism, Cinema Novo rose to prominence in Brazil in the 1960s and ’70s. Eryk Rocha, the son of a famed filmmaker, crafted this doc about the era as a sort of love letter. Rocha used archival interviews in the filmmaking process to pay homage to those who challenged the “understandings of art in the face of dictatorship." Cinema Novo won the L'Œil d'Or documentary award at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. The movie is in Portuguese with English subtitles. This screening is part of a series at Trinosophes that will include a July screening of The Cinema Travelers and a Moroccan film called Mimosas in August. $8

George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic

Thu., May 25, 8 p.m.

As we all know by now, George Clinton and his Parliament Funkadelic crew have been exceptionally, extremely, and audaciously funky since 1968. Though they may have gotten started as a barbershop vocal act in New Jersey in the mid 1960s, it didn’t take long for Clinton and the band to realize where music was headed. Of all of the bands to gain momentum at the height of the 1970s, P-Funk created the best dance music with the most meaningful politically charged lyrics out of any of the rest. Never miss a chance to see Clinton with the mothership, never. $35-$47
