This weekend, +The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra plays the Concerto for String Orchestra by Grażyna Bacewicz. Learn more about this pioneering 20th century composer and her colorful, forward-looking music.

Four top picks so far from The Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul's annual film festival ‪#‎MSPIFF‬:

- A roadside cafe in the shadow of four isolated, crumbling tower blocks is the setting for Iris Elezi and Thomas Logoreci's Bota, in which the history of this odd community is gradually unveiled as we watch how it has shaped three people's lives.

- A subtle suspense undergirds Radu Muntean's One Floor Below, in which a man must decide if and how to act after inadvertently witnessing something that causes him to suspect a neighbor of committing a horrible crime.

- Vahid Jalilvand's humanist drama Wednesday, May 9, weaves together the stories of two women whose lives have reached crucial crossroads and one man who has the very limited power to help them.

- And in the festival's always-excellent Childish Films series, Olivier Ringer's engrossing Birds of Passage tells the story of the choices two young girls must make after they become responsible for the fate of a duckling.

Bota and One Floor Below return to the festival this afternoon, Birds of Passage screens again Sunday, and Wednesday, May 9, makes its second appearance next Tuesday. Check out http://mspfilm.org for more info.
