Protest Sign Exhibition
MARCH 18, 2022
@ 5:30 -7 p.m.
CAB Gallery FREE
Anger and grief have gripped our city, our state, and our country. Voices have risen, our community has protested, and demonstrators have created passionate, poignant messages that are projected through their signs. Handmade, printed, painted, drawn with a marker, put on a board…these signs tell a powerful story. It is the time for these stories to be heard.

This show will be juried by Dr. Travis Williams. Travis Williams, Ph.D., is full-time teaching faculty in the Department of Sociology at Virginia Commonwealth University. He received his doctorate in Sociology from the University of California, Santa Cruz in 2012. He served as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Science & Technology in Society at Virginia Tech from 2012 to 2014. His research areas include Environmental Racism, Racial Capitalism, Risk Society, Social Movements, and Non-profit Industrial Complex.

Virtuoso Afro-Cuban-born brothers—violinist Ilmar and pianist Aldo—live on opposite sides of a geopolitical chasm a half-century wide. Tracking their parallel lives in New York and Havana, their poignant reunion, and their momentous first performances together, Los Hermanos/The Brothers offers a nuanced, often startling view of estranged nations through the lens of music and family.

Be sure to stay after the screening for a special Q&A session with the filmmakers! 

WHQR DocuTime Finale Celebration and Salute to Paula Haller
MARCH 27, 2022
@ 3 p.m.

WHQR is proud to present the 19th and final DocuTime, a film festival finale celebration and salute to founder Paula Haller. This event will feature a screening of the documentary Julia with a reception to follow.

Julia brings to life the legendary cookbook author and television superstar who changed the way Americans think about food, television, and even about women. Using never-before-seen archival footage, personal photos, first-person narratives, and cutting-edge, mouth-watering food cinematography, the film traces Julia Child's 12 year struggle to create and publish the revolutionary Mastering the Art of French Cooking (1961) which has sold more than 2.5 million copies to date, and her rapid ascent to become the country’s most unlikely television star. It’s the empowering story of a woman who found her purpose – and her fame – at 50, and took America along on the whole delicious journey.
