When the baby is born deaf, she uses extreme measures to make sure her son becomes the composer her father always wanted – but as he grows up and confronts his grandfather, Anat must finally stand up for her son. 

Continuing are "Jimmy Carter. Rock and Roll President"(NR), "Sibyl"(NR) "Epicentro"(NR), "August Virgin"(NR), "Eternal Beauty"(NR), "Jazz on a Summer's Day"(NR), "Quarantine Cat Film Festival"(NR), "The Fight"(PG-13)(conversation available with Ann Hornaday, attorneys, and filmmakers), "Marley"(PG-13), "My Dog Stupid"(NR), and "Flannery"(NR).  Please note that Virtual Avalon, https://www.virtualavalon.org, will begin hosting many more titles than we feature here, creating a service that we hope will be an enticing alternative to Netflix, Hulu, etc. for Avalon supporters.

U.S. Civil Rights Movement Sites and the World Heritage List - Webinar - July 30th, 2020 -- The inaugural US/ICOMOS Webinar featured current efforts to preserve, restore, and interpret African American heritage sites associated with the Modern Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s and the effort to develop a potential serial nomination of U.S. Civil Rights Movement Sites for possible inscription on the World Heritage List. This online seminar featured Brent Leggs, the executive director of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund, and Denise Gilmore, formerly with the Trust and now the Acting Executive Director of the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, and former Director Robert Stanton, the first African American to head the National Park Service.

Walks:

Barbara Scott, our Village’s social worker, compiled a list of recommended walks that are in relatively uncongested areas that are reachable both by walking/car.  Associated activities might include brisk walking & birding.  Several of these you may familiar with while others may take you quite far-a-field. 

• Dumbarton Oaks & Oak Hill Cemetery, R Street, Georgetown. There are no joggers/bikers; 22 acres of quiet & peace. Open 9-4:45 pm. Dumbarton Oaks is accessible by way of the P Street bus. Get off at 26th St & walk from P St to R St.  Next to the cemetery is Dumbarton Oaks, not to be confused w/ the library/museum which is adjacent. Walk down, Lovers Lane. Take the left-hand turn at the bottom of the small hill. If you go straight, you will find a lovely path that goes to Mass Ave. There are great walks/hikes and quite safe.  The cemetery is a great walk as well. You will see Ben Bradlee’s crypt & other cemetery sculpture.
• You can walk along Mass Ave which has a wide sidewalk; lots of people but easy to distance. Then cut into Kalorama.  The streets are pretty traffic-free once you get up toward the mosque. You can also walk in on a trail there across from the mosque, just after you cross the bridge.
• You are less likely to run into people while doing my brisk walks by sticking to non-commercial streets in the DuPont & Georgetown neighborhoods.
Rock Creek Park offers many trails in the area of Pierce Mill to Western Ave. Some trails are level, some are steep, some paved, most not. There are lots of parking spots.  The Nature Center may have maps. And as with all hiking in less frequent areas, it is always recommended to walk with a buddy.
Early morning (by 7:30 a.m.) is best wherever you walk, particularly in popular areas like hiking trails in Rock Creek Park or the closed portion of Beach Drive.
• Audubon Naturalist Park in Chevy Chase on Jones Mill Road is a good place to hike. There is parking & they have a nice trail with lots of birds. 
• Western Grove Urban Park is on Western Ave, just E of Wisconsin Ave, across the street from Dickson-Hurt-Home (assisted living/nursing home). If you walk north up a path at the left, you will find a path at the northwest corner leading out of the park.  That is a lovely tree-lined path exiting at a street one block south of Dorset, very close to Wisconsin. 
• The Potomac/Poolesville, MD area – look for not so crowded parking lots along the C & O towpath that parallels the Potomac River. It has a wide trail for social distancing. It has beautiful scenery, birds, turtles & few people.
The Franciscan Monastery grounds in Brookland are nice & nice crowded.  The walk is hilly but not very long.

There are plenty of nice city walks - DuPont, Cathedral, Dumbarton, Lincoln Memorial, Rock Creek Park, etc.  
Rosaryville State Park is a nice place to walk, not many people & you can easily keep up the recommended social distancing. There are several other parks: Cheltenham Wetlands Park, Cedarville State Forest, Jug Bay Natural Area, Maxwell Hall Natural Resource Management Area near Hughesville, MD.  All the parks have multiple trails & again are not busy.  All Trails App locates trails around the country. It has maps of the trails that are accurate, directions, pictures, reviews & more.  

Nearby there are great hikes to Cedarville & Jug Bay in southern MD. The American Chestnut Land Trust is another good place to go for easy hikes that is also in Southern Maryland.  The drive may be about an hour, but it is mostly open roads unlike an hour spent in local traffic.  You can Google the website for the nearby state parks & national forests (not as crowded as parks like Shenandoah) and use All Trails app. all the time, especially to track the route  & the distance.   If you are interested in hiking in northern VA, you can Google ‘’hikingupward.com’’ for good trail maps, etc. There is nothing better than a walk on ‘’cleared’’ trails in the parks enjoying nature while being able to be out safely.  Don’t forget to take your masks in case you meet up with someone.
