The Arlington Int'l Film Festival invites you to watch ( from July 20 to August 4th)  a FREE virtual film on the AIFF website TACKLING LIFE (94 min) by Johannes List | Germany | 2018 | Doc - Visit www.AIFFest.org Film Link located at bottom of the home page
TACKLING LIFE is a documentary about the Berlin Bruisers, Germany’s first gay and inclusive rugby club. Founded by a handful of friends several years ago in a Berlin park, this gentle and affecting film paints their lives as they build-up to their first major tournament.

Perennial losers when they first meet, the Bruisers greatest achievements would seem to mostly lie off the pitch. From sterling anti-bullying workshops in schools to caring for the elderly, distant relatives, and much more, each Bruiser’s journey is very different. We see a band of individuals come together as a family, who are there for one another as much in life as they are on the pitch. Arousing portrait of a team sweating, celebrating, laughing and crying together, winning and losing, and the joy, after years of searching, of finally finding a community where they could be themselves. 

This film is indeed fragile and profound yet spectacular and loud! Awards include KOK Fest Munich Audience Award.

Peter says, "C#minor7 as a band name is a bit of an in joke, but we’d love to include you. You’ve all heard a C#minor7 and of course jazz players will shake their heads approvingly. It’s just a wonderfully spicy chord whose sweet dissonance is so evocative of that uniquely American art form – Jazz. Tino and I found ourselves without any performance opportunities last year, but desperate for musical companionship formed a little cohort and played on. We are now extremely happy to be able to share the fruits of this collaboration – the melding of two unusual instruments in an intimate exploration of jazz improvisation."

Both Dagostino and Lehman are long time residents of Arlington and Peter Lehman has forged an individual style of playing on a 17th century instrument – the theorbo. "Who knew that in the right hands this ancient instrument would be so adaptable and appropriate for jazz?"

ARTS ARLINGTON is proud to announce a return to our LIVE ARTS programming! Organized in partnership with artists, Live Arts is designed to encourage public performance and creation in the Town, inviting artists to step out and share their expertise on sidewalks, parks, and plazas where people gather and enjoy outdoor entertainment. Enjoy these upcoming performances in public spaces around Arlington, and stay tuned to Arts Arlington via our newsletters and social media for more!
