Sports arena has decided it really needs less cowbell

In his defense, the guy who administered the test was drunk

Wonder if he’ll ‘emanate calm’ after living in an unheated cave

The operator of the Erie Insurance Arena in Erie, Pa., is banning cowbells, the Erie TimesNews reports. Fans clanged the noisemakers throughout the Erie Otters’ playoff game Tuesday, and some threw them onto the ice as the Otters celebrated a win that sent them to the conference finals. The Otters had provided cowbells as a giveaway and also sold them, but a spokesman said the team will no longer sell the items. (AP)

An Austin, Texas, police officer whose duties included administering Breathalyzer tests has been fired after a self-administered test indicated he’d reported for work drunk. Records show the officer arrived at work one day last October, then drove his patrol car to the county jail for a self-test required by his certification. Extrapolated results showed his blood alcohol level was .084-.124 when he arrived at work, above the .08 percent limit for drivers. (AP)

The Austrian town of Saalfelden has a new hermit. After an international search, officials chose Belgian Stan Vanuytrecht, a former artillery officer, surveyor and a Roman Catholic deacon, for the unpaid job because the bearded 58-yearold pipe smoker “emanates calm.” As hermit, Vanuytrecht will live in and greet visitors at the town’s 350-year-old hermitage, which is built into a cave and has no heat or running water.

Pot activists to hold Capitol smoke-out

D.C. pot activists will hold their first significant protest of the Trump administration on Monday.

for federal authorities to ignore. It also would be the first significant protest to take place under a Trump administration that has suggested there would be greater enforcement of federal drug laws prohibiting the use of recreational marijuana than under the Obama administration. “You can only ask nicely for so long before you have to change your tactic,” said Adam Eidinger,

a co-founder of the advocacy group DCMJ. Eidinger said he is making sure his 13-year-old daughter will be taken care of and that his rent is paid in case he must spend an extended period of time in jail. “It’s come to this,” he said. A spokeswoman for the United States Capitol Police, which has jurisdiction over the Capitol grounds, said in an email that “it is illegal to smoke marijuana on Federal property.” Eva Malecki, the spokeswoman, did not respond to a question about how the law enforcement agency might respond to the planned event. Eidinger said he has not discussed the planned protest with police but has been in touch with authorities about another event scheduled for today, a national day of pro-pot advocacy. Eidinger’s group plans to distribute free marijuana joints to anyone with a congressional ID badge on a city street outside the Capitol. Under current law, possessing joints on city streets is not a crime, but smoking them is. AARON C. DAVIS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

PITTSBURG HIGH SCHOOL

THE DISTRICT Dozens of activists, including some military veterans, plan to light joints Monday on the steps of the U.S. Capitol — federal land where committing the offense could draw a sentence of up to a year in jail — as part of an effort to urge a reluctant Congress to support marijuana legalization. “Monday @ High Noon,” reads a flyer for the event, calling on Congress to also remove marijuana from the nation’s list of most dangerous drugs. “Mass Civil Disobedience @ 4:20p — East Side of the US Capitol.” Activists for the cause have flirted with arrest before, including smoking near the White House when President Obama was in office. But the Monday event marks the first time activists plan to light up squarely on federal land — and against the backdrop of the U.S. Capitol dome, where the image may be hard

Businesses, wealthy boost inaugural haul Trump raised a record $107M for the low-key swearing-in festivities THE DISTRICT Billionaires, corporations and NFL owners opened their wallets in a big way to help President Trump raise a record-shattering $107 million for his inaugural festivities, records released by the Federal Election Commission on Wednesday show. The amount about doubled the record set by former President Barack Obama eight years ago. After giving $5 million, Las Vegas gaming billionaire Sheldon Adelson and his wife had prime seats for Trump’s swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 20 and gained access to a private lunch with the new president and lawmakers at the Capitol. Phil Ruffin, another casino mogul and close friend of Trump, gave $1 million. All the seven-figure contributions fed into a fundraising total that dwarfed the amounts raised for past inaugurations — yet produced an event that was largely viewed as lowerkey than previous swearing-in festivities. Trump’s inaugural committee doesn’t have to disclose what it spent the money on or how much was left over. But it did promise to “identify and evaluate charities that will

Eulalio Tordil, a former officer with the Federal Protective Service, still faces a heavy prison sentence in the 2016 two-day spree — up to four life terms, including one with the condition he never be eligible for parole, according to the records.

According to the agreement, Tordil will plead g u i lt y t o t w o counts of firstTordil degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder, the latter charges based on allegations he shot two others who survived his rampage in Montgomery. Both murder counts had originally carried the possibility of life with no parole. Prosecutors agreed to convert one of those counts to life with the chance of parole, according the agreement. The plea agreement “has no impact” on Tordil’s alleged crimes in Prince George’s County, according to the records. He remains charged there with one count of first-degree murder and two handgun counts, according to online court records. DAN MORSE (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Bill O’Reilly out at Fox News

Harassment claims bring a swift end to the cable star’s long tenure

BERKELEY, CALIF.

Bill O’Reilly continued to deny sexual harassment allegations on Wednesday.

news network in television,” he said. “It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims.” People close to O’Reilly said Rupert Murdoch and his sons James and Lachlan, who head 21st Century, decided O’Reilly’s fate with little outside discussion. The end for O’Reilly was set in motion by a scathing New York Times investigation in early April that revealed that he and Fox had settled five allegations of harassment brought by Fox employees over a 15-year period. The company and O’Reilly paid out $15 million in exchange for his accusers’ silence. It was a sixth accuser — a former guest on O’Reilly’s program named Wendy Walsh — who may have been the key to his unraveling. Unlike the women who received settlements for their

Fox’s new lineup “The O’Reilly Factor” will continue for the remainder of the week, with guest hosts Dana Perino and Greg Gutfeld, before Fox will shake up its lineup. The network said Tucker Carlson, host of a discussion program now airing at 9 p.m., will take over O’Reilly’s 8 p.m. time slot. In turn, Carlson’s old 9 p.m. time slot with be filled by Fox’s 5 p.m. show, “The Five.” Starting May 1, the 5 p.m. hour will be occupied by a new show, hosted by Eric Bolling. (TWP)

adver tisers bega n to f lee O’Reilly’s program. The boycott kept up as Walsh held press conferences and gave interviews. On Tuesday, another woman came forward, anonymously, to complain that she had been harassed with racial and sexual comments by O’Reilly in 2008. Fox has also lost popular hosts Greta Van Susteren and Megyn Kelly since the turmoil began last summer. The network, however, continued to roll in record ratings, driven in part by viewer interest in Donald Trump, a longtime friend of Ailes, Murdoch and O’Reilly and a frequent guest. The loss of O’Reilly, however, is of a different magnitude: “The O’Reilly Factor” has been the network’s flagship show for nearly 20 years, and in many ways has embodied its conservative-oriented spirit.

Campus officials cancel conservative’s speech ROB KIM (GETTY IMAGES)

MEDIA Fox News on Wednesday ended its association with Bill O’Reilly, the combative TV host and commentator who has ruled cable news ratings for nearly two decades and was the signature figure in the network’s rise as a powerful political player. The conservative host’s downfall was swift and steep, set in motion less than three weeks ago by revelations of a string of sexual harassment complaints against him. The questions about his conduct represented yet another black eye to Fox, which had dealt with a sexual harassment scandal involving its co-founder and then-chairman Roger Ailes just last summer. “After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel,” 21st Century Fox, the channel’s parent company, said in a statement Wednesday. The ousted host stood by his earlier denials of the allegations in a statement issued Wednesday. “Over the past 20 years at Fox News, I have been extremely proud to launch and lead one of the most successful news programs in history, which has consistently informed and entertained millions of Americans and significantly contributed to building Fox into the dominant

Syria said to have chemical cache Israeli defense officials claim Assad has ‘tons’ of banned weapons SYRIA Israeli defense officials said on Wednesday that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad still has up to 3 tons of chemical weapons. The assessment, based on Israeli intelligence, was revealed to reporters two weeks after a chemical attack in Syria killed at least 90 people. Israel, along with much of the international community, believes that Assad’s forces carried out the attack. A senior military official told reporters that the Israeli intelligence estimates that Assad has “between 1 and 3 tons” of chemical weapons. The assessment was confirmed by two other defense officials. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity under military briefing rules. Also Wednesday, a global chemical weapons watchdog group said that the deadly nerve agent sarin was used in the attack. The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said that samples from 10 separate victims of the attack indicated exposure to sarin or a sarin-like substance.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad reportedly still possess up to 3 tons of chemical weapons.

“The analytical results already obtained are incontrovertible,” said Ahmet Uzumcu, the organization’s director-general. Assad has denied the allegations that he was behind the April 4 attack in the oppositionheld town of Khan Sheikhun in Syria’s southern Idlib province. Assad agreed in 2013 to declare and dispose of all his chemical weapons under U.N. supervision, but his forces have been accused of using them since then. The disarmament has always been the subject of doubt, and there is evidence that the Islamic State group and other insurgents might have acquired chemical weapons. (AP/THE WASHINGTON POST)

The Middle East’s largest airline slashed its flights to the United States by 20 percent Wednesday, from 126 to 101. Emirates, the Dubai government-owned carrier, blamed a drop in demand on tougher U.S. security measures and the Trump administration’s travel ban attempts. (AP)

Juan Manuel Montes Bojorquez, 23, was walking in Calexico, Calif., when a Border Patrol agent stopped him and asked him for identification. Montes said he left his wallet in a friend’s car, and thus had no way of proving his status as a “dreamer” allowing him to live in the United States legally. Montes, who was brought into the U.S. when he was 9 and has cognitive disabilities, was taken into custody the evening of Feb. 17. At about 1 a.m., immigration officials walked Montes across the border, leaving him near Mexicali, Mexico. Immigration advocates and lawyers say Montes is thought to be the first “dreamer” — a beneficiary of President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program — to be deported. They filed a lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act on Tuesday seeking more information on the case. They also say Montes has an active work permit. He has worked picking fruits and vegetables in California.

Oxybenzone can play a destructive role in preventing the natural restoration of a damaged reef—ultimately leaving the seascape barren and desolate. Sunscreen pollution’s worst impacts occur on reefs where locals and tourists love to swim and experience the ocean.

Marijuana has gone mainstream

WASHINGTONPOST.COM POWERPOST

Georgia results a wake-up call for Republicans

Almost all pot users are open about their habit to close friends. Most adults who use marijuana are parents. There are almost as many Americans who smoke weed as there are who smoke SEAN GALLUP (GETTY IMAGES)

cigarettes. Those facts are among the conclusions of a new survey from Yahoo News and Marist University, which illustrates how pot has become a part of everyday life for millions of Americans. With today being April 20, the high holiday for marijuana users, here’s a look at numbers from the survey that explain the current state of marijuana in the U.S. CHRISTOPHER INGRAHAM (THE WASHINGTON POST)

22%

49%

56%

72%

Nearly 55 million American adults currently use marijuana; more than half have tried it in their lives; and about 35 million (14 percent) are “regular users” who use it at least once a month. Those figures from the new survey are larger than some previous polls. It would mean there are nearly as many marijuana users as cigarette smokers (59 million).

The Marist survey asked about medical and recreational marijuana separately. It found that about 83 percent of respondents support medical marijuana, in line with other national surveys. But respondents were closely divided on the question of “legalizing the use of marijuana for recreational use” — 49 percent support it, 47 percent oppose.

Most Americans think using marijuana is “socially acceptable,” but there’s a big split here between people who’ve tried it (74 percent say it’s acceptable) and people who haven’t (37 percent). Americans do, however, disapprove of parents smoking pot in front of their kids: 79 percent say they would have less respect for such a person.

By similar margins, Americans say regular marijuana use is less of a health risk than regular use of tobacco (76 percent to 18 percent), alcohol (72 to 20) or prescription painkillers (76 to 18). But the public is split on whether pot is a risk in and of itself: 51 percent say using marijuana is a health risk, while 44 percent say it is not.

27%

16%

54%

95%

Abstainers point to a host of reasons for not smoking: 26 percent said they simply don’t like it; 16 percent said because it’s not healthy; and 9 percent said it would interfere with work or school. Asked whether they would use marijuana if the federal government legalized it nationally, only 28 percent said they would be likely to do so.

A variety of utilitarian reasons were given when pot smokers were asked why they currently use marijuana: 37 percent said they use it to relax; 19 percent said they do it to relieve pain; and 10 percent said it helps them be social. For most users, marijuana is less about just having fun and more of a product that fulfills a specific need in their life.

About 16 million of the 30 million parents who use marijuana have children younger than 18. Childhood exposure has been a big talking point for opponents of pot legalization. In the Marist survey, 94 percent of marijuana-using parents of underage kids say they’ve never used it in front of their kids or shared it with them.

Pot users are very open about their habit: 95 percent have told close friends and significant others; 72 percent have told their parents; and 60 percent have told their kids. Some families even toke together — 21 percent of users have either smoked in front of their parents or shared a joint with them. Only 31 percent of users typically smoke alone.

The results of Georgia’s special election should scare Republicans, but Democrats shouldn’t overread the outcome. Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff, above, received 48.3 percent of the vote in the open House race to replace Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price. He needed to break 50 percent in the jungle primary to avoid a head-to-head June 20 runoff with the top Republican finisher. Instead, he’ll face former Georgia secretary of state Karen Handel. She drew close to 20 percent of the vote in a field that included 11 GOP candidates. Ossoff shouldn’t have come as close as he did. He’s an ex-congressional staffer who has never run for office and doesn’t live in the district. Republicans, from Newt Gingrich to Johnny Isakson, have easily held the 6th District since the 1970s. He was fueled by grassroots activism and millions in donations fueled largely by antipathy to President Trump. “This is already a remarkable victory,” Ossoff said. “We defied the odds, shattered expectations and now are ready to fight on and win in June.” But picking up 24 seats in 2018 to win control of the House will still be very hard for Democrats. Despite the national help Ossoff got, he outperformed Hillary Clinton by only about one point in the district. JAMES HOHMANN

nation+world POLITICS House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz announced Wednesday he will not run for reelection to his House seat in 2018. The Utah Republican said he won’t seek any political office in 2018, stirring speculation that he may run for governor in 2020. Last year, he told the Deseret News he would “take a serious, serious” look at a gubernatorial bid in Utah once his term expired. Chaffetz was first elected in 2008 and ascended to the Oversight Committee chairmanship in

2015. As chairman, he was a pugnacious prosecutor of the Obama White House and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, taking a lead role in challenging the administration on the deaths of embassy personnel in Benghazi, Libya, and relentlessly probing Clinton’s private email server. But he has been criticized over his disinterest in aggressively investigating President Trump. Chaffetz is one of nine Republicans who have resigned their House seats, announced plans to retire or declared intentions to run for other offices so far

PITCHING PROBLEM

Baker, Rizzo: Nats bullpen needs change

RICK SNIDER | SPORTS GURU

If the Nationals want to keep superstar Bryce Harper before he leaves as a free agent, they should take a lesson from the Redskins, who are still at a contract stalemate with their one-year rental, franchise-tagged quarterback. The baseball club should treat Harper the opposite of how their neighbors in Ashburn are treating Kirk Cousins. According to a USA Today report from last year’s winter meetings, Harper is seeking a deal that would be worth at least $400 million over 10 years or more. Although the 2015 NL MVP hasn’t stated these demands publicly, he appears set to test the market as a free agent after the 2018 season and become the highest paid player in baseball at age 26, unless the Nationals intervene. Owner Ted Lerner and general manager Mike Rizzo should offer Harper a $425 million deal right now. Considering that the largest active contract belongs to the Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton, who’s pulling in $325 million over 13 years, that might sound crazy. But having Harper, who hit .354 with a 1.162 OPS and 13 RBIs in his first 13 games this season, for the long term is worth a king’s ransom.

The last thing the Nats should do is lowball Harper. The Redskins have spent the past two offseasons shortchanging Cousins, and it’s about to cost them dearly next year. At $34 million, the oneyear franchise tag would be too expensive to use on Cousins a third straight time. If team president Bruce Allen tries that move again, he should be tarred, feathered and kicked out of town. The Redskins have choked on their pride, but the Nats need to swallow theirs. Cousins’ exit would hurt Washington’s football team, but it wouldn’t devastate the city like a Harper exit. If Cousins leaves, half of Redskins fans won’t care. They’re still bitter over Robert Griffin III failing, and never embraced his replacement. Cousins is simply a good quarterback. Harper has flashed Hall of Fame potential. Harper is unquestionably the face of the Nationals. There’s no replacing him. Trea Turner has provided hope for the future, but Harper is the still the one everyone stops to watch. He’s the one who wins games at the end. (See Sunday, when he hit a walk-off homer in the ninth inning. Or last Friday, when he slid into home plate on Daniel Murphy’s game-winning double in the 10th.) In 2016, the Redskins

MANUEL BALCE CENETA (AP)

Nats take note: Cousins debacle applies to Harper

Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper will become a free agent in 2019 and is reportedly seeking a historically huge deal worth at least $400 million.

“When a team is willing to step up and commit to me fully for the long haul, then why would I want to be anywhere else?” KIRK COUSINS, telling the MMQB’s Peter King in a recent podcast that he wants to stay in Washington if the team is willing to pony up

wanted one more season to assure themselves that Cousins was the real deal. Maybe the Nats are doing the same thing with Harper after a sub-par effort last year in which he hit a career low .243, but still smacked 24 homers. He batted .330 with 42 homers in 2015 — his MVP year. Maybe Harper and agent

Wednesday’s Capitals-Maple Leafs and Wizards-Hawks games ended after Express’ deadline

Scott Boras are holding out for a historic payday, but if his status has anything to do with hesitation on the Nationals’ part, they need to stop waiting. When the Redskins dragged their feet, Cousins tore through the team’s record book for the second year in a row. Now he’ll make at least $4 million more than he should this season. This year, Harper, 24, already looks like the next Mickey Mantle. The Nats overpaid to keep pitcher Stephen Strasburg (seven years, $175 million), and he doesn’t offer nearly the impact of an everyday slugger like Harper. If the Nationals need to charge 50 cents more per beer to cover Harper’s deal, then fans will drink to that.

After the Nationals survived another ineffective ninth inning by Blake Treinen, below, to beat the Braves 3-1, manager Dusty Baker was blunt about the struggles of his anointed closer. “We got to do something to shore up our closer situation, because this ain’t working,” Baker said Tuesday, when he pulled Treinen in the ninth after he managed only one out between two hits and two walks and forced in a run that brought his ERA to 7.11. In an interview Wednesday on 106.7 The Fan before another game in Atlanta, general manager Mike Rizzo said the team would “re-evaluate” the bullpen. “Maybe it’s kind of a reshuffling of roles,” said Rizzo, who lauded the depth of the relief staff.

Convicted murderer, former NFL star was serving a life sentence SHIRLEY, MASS. Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez hanged himself in the prison cell where he was serving a life sentence for murder, officials said Wednesday, the same day his former team, the Patriots, visited the White House to mark their Super Bowl LI victory. Hernandez, 27, died just days after he was acquitted in a second murder case. Guards found the former NFL tight end just after 3 a.m.,

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Juventus and Monaco advance to semifinals Juventus held host Barcelona to a 0-0 draw Wednesday to advance to the Champions League semifinals. Barcelona striker Lionel Messi missed two scoring chances that could have sparked a comeback, and the second-leg stalemate sealed a 3-0 win on aggregate. Monaco beat visiting Borussia Dortmund 3-1 behind early goals from Kylian Mbappe and Radamel Falcao to also earn a place in Friday’s semifinals draw with Juventus, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. (AP)

Correction Department spokesman Christopher Fallon said. Hernandez was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead about an hour later. Hernandez had been housed in a single cell in a general population unit at the maximumsecurity state prison in Shirley, Mass. He tried to jam the cell door to prevent guards from opening it and hanged himself with a bedsheet tied to a window, Fallon said. Fallon said he was not aware of any suicide note and that officials had no reason to believe Hernandez might take his life. The Worcester County

district attorney’s office and the Correction Department are investigating. Hernandez’s lawyer, Jose Baez, said he will conduct his own investigation. “There were no conversations or correspondence from Aaron to his family or legal team that would have indicated anything like this was possible,” Baez said in a statement. Hernandez helped the University of Florida win the 2008 NCAA championship, but he dropped to the fourth round of the NFL draft because of his behavior in college, where he failed a drug test, was accused

Husband-and-wife team Richard Landau and Kate Jacoby, Philadelphia restaurateurs with a half-dozen James Beard Award semifinalist and nominee nods — will join the Apollo development at 600 H Street NE, which includes the new Whole Foods Market, with a late-fall opening. For the new location — their first outside of Philadelphia

— Landau and Jacoby plan to replicate their vegan street-food bar V Street. “We celebrate street foods by drawing influence from popular dishes and ingredients around the globe,” Jacoby says. “Nothing is a literal take, just our inspiration.” V Street’s offerings include such dishes as dan dan noodles with roasted mushrooms in a red chile-sesame sauce and Peruvian fries with aji amarillo sauce.

Kate Jacoby and Richard Landau are bringing their V Street concept to D.C.

Jacoby, the pastry chef, has big plans for dessert in D.C. Expect soft serve in such flavors as halvah with sumac sour cherries or cannoli with pistachio, bitter

orange and chocolate magic shell. Landau and Jacoby were drawn to D.C. for personal and professional reasons. Landau has family in the area, and Jacoby attended Georgetown University. Jacoby says they always saw potential in D.C.’s restaurant scene, especially when it comes to growth in meat-free concepts. She gives props to such operations as Elizabeth’s Gone Raw and Sticky Fingers for helping to grow the vegan restaurant scene. “The demand for serious vegan food is getting stronger all the time,” she says. The couple has already witnessed the demand from D.C. residents. The 202 area code is the third most popular on the reservation books at Vedge. BECKY KRYSTAL (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Ninth spot’s the charm This time, Mike Isabella mines Iberian flavors for a new restaurant

RESTAURANTS Practice makes perfect, or something approaching it. Just look at the efforts of Mike Isabella, who’s done an increasingly impressive job over the years of feeding us Greek food, starting with Kapnos in Washington, followed by other accents, including Japanese and Korean at Yona in Arlington. His ninth restaurant (not including concessions), Arroz in the Marriott Marquis (901 Massachusetts Ave. NW), looks to Spain, Morocco and Portugal for inspiration. Spain, Isabella says, was the first country he visited in Europe 15 years ago. As for Morocco, “I love the flavors and spices.” Isabella figures that, with no similar themes nearby to compete with his idea, Arroz (Spanish for “rice”) is a good fit for the neighborhood. The restaurant is definitely easy to look at. The approach — an azure foyer followed by a long, carpet-paved hall — is especially dramatic. Lucky twosomes are shown to one of the cozy, keyholeshaped booths opposite the front windows. Semiprivate, the seating nevertheless lets you feel like part of the party. The elm tables? Credit Isabella’s fatherin-law, Charlie Nemeth, for the sleek touch. Isabella recruited Michael Rafidi from the well-regarded

RN74 in San Francisco to head up the kitchen at Arroz. A Rockville native, Rafidi, 32, returned to the East Coast in January with the ultimate goal of opening his own restaurant, most likely an homage to his Lebanese background. For now, he’s doing food that’s likely to keep tables in demand. Dinner starts with a snack from the kitchen — recently, it was

baby carrots the size of a pinkie finger with a potent garlic crumble for dipping. From there, diners might move on to sweetbreads, fried so they crackle and dappled with orange marmalade tweaked with lime juice and fish sauce. Smoked as if in a bonfire, “burnt” eggplant gets pureed with tahini, black garlic, honey and sherry vinegar to

make a tar-colored but delectable spread for warm, sesame-seeded Moroccan flatbread. Among early strong sellers are a host of spring vegetables — some raw, some charred — arranged in a salad dressed with a vinaigrette coaxed from calamansi, a fruit with a sour citrus note. In a nod to paella, there’s bomba rice served with a choice of vegetables, crab, suckling pig or duck. Designed for sharing, the signature dish shows up with crusty rice on the bottom, fluffy rice in the center and more crisp textures on top, alongside duck meat made succulent from brining and aging, charred cucumber with dollops of yogurt. Texture is part of the bomba’s appeal; rice enriched with sofrito, housemade harissa and fennel kimchi compels you to keep digging, too. The bar keeps pace with novelties such as the vodka-fueled, apricot-flavored Kasbah, its cap of crushed ice drizzled with an oil spiked with ras el hanout, the Moroccan spice blend. And desserts include a tower of rum baba in a moat of vanilla custard sauce, fragrant with orange blossom. For the most part, Arroz brims with intriguing flavors and good ideas, the most thoughtful of which is a tag for any food you want to take home. Instead of returning leftovers in a bag to your table, the restaurant stows them at the coat check: No more walking through the dining room with tonight’s midnight snack or tomorrow’s lunch in tow.

‘In Search of Israeli Cuisine’ Quick — name your favorite Israeli food! Having trouble? That’s because Israeli cooking is a unique mixture of cuisine from not only the surrounding countries and people, but from the immigrants who have migrated there, bringing their own traditions and flavors. In Roger Sherman‘s documentary “In Search of Israeli Cuisine,” chef Michael Solomonov eats his way around the Iraqi/Palestinian/Moroccan/Russian/Turkish/Greek kitchens of Israel. In the tradition of hunger-inducing documentaries such as “Jiro Dreams of Sushi,” “In Search of Israeli Cuisine” is best seen after you’ve eaten. That way you can digest, and go out to eat more afterward. Landmark Bethesda Row Cinema, 7235 Woodmont Ave., Bethesda; opens Fri.

weekendpass For the record, it’s illegal to consume marijuana at the National Cannabis Festival.

High hopes The National Cannabis Festival returns for a second year to educate the public about marijuana — and show a different side of weed culture

L

et’s get the obvious out of the way: No, you cannot legally consume marijuana at the second annual National Cannabis Festival. While Initiative 71 did legalize marijuana for adult use in D.C. starting in 2015, the law bars anyone from using cannabis in public — and the

event, either — both D.C. law and the festival strictly prohibit that. So what’s the point of the National Cannabis Festival? “I think the goal of the festival is to start drawing in the folks that may not consider themselves part of the immediate cannabis community but are interested in learning more,” says Caroline Phillips, the event’s founder. It’s also a chance to show that not all users are the hippie, stoner stereotypes often seen in movies and TV. “The reason why we go to the trouble of building an event like this one mile from Congress and the Capitol is that we really do want to show them another side of this community,” Phillips says. While you can’t light up, here are five things you can do at Saturday’s event, which is open to adults 21 and up. RUDI GREENBERG (EXPRESS) RFK Stadium Lot 6/7, 2400 E.

weekendpass Attend the festival and you, too, can pose for a photo with a giant pot leaf.

Sober or not, here we come We here at Express do not know this from personal experience, but we’ve heard that some activities are enhanced by the use of alcohol and/or marijuana, the latter of which is legal for adults in D.C. (as long as you’re not in public or on federal property). Using only our imaginations, we’ve mapped out a few such possibilities below. SADIE DINGFELDER (EXPRESS) FUN WHILE HIGH

The Hirshhorn Suddenly, modern art makes so much sense!

Hemp soap company Dr. Bronner’s, which has poured money into marijuana legalization efforts across the country, is sponsoring an advocacy village in the middle of the festival grounds with giveaways throughout the day. Groups like the American Civil Liberties Union, various chapters of NORML, the Marijuana Policy Project and voterregistration group HeadCount will be on hand to talk to attendees who are interested in getting involved — and also those who are just excited to be at a weed festival. “For the folks who come in thinking that they’re not really interested in policy or advocacy, it will be hard for them to leave without learning something,” Phillips says.

Educate yourself The education pavilion includes a robust lineup of events and panels, beginning at noon with a yoga class. At 1 p.m., there will be a discussion on whether or not there’s a new war on cannabis under President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Another panel at 2:45 p.m. focuses on weed technology (for

apps, home growing and more). The education pavilion wraps up in the evening with an expo highlighting many of Maryland’s soon-to-open medical marijuana dispensaries. “We wanted to make sure we provided a platform for people to really learn about a broad swath of the industry,” Phillips says.

Cherry blossoms Vibe with the flowers’ ephemeral beauty. Just don’t try to explain it to the people snapping pics.

Karaoke You can re-enact your favorite scene from “Lost in Translation.”

Redskins games Football has so many rules — gotta stay sharp.

Go shopping The festival’s vendor fair will include dozens of marijuana companies — head shops, hydroponic stores, D.C. medical marijuana dispensaries, vaporizer companies, yes — but there’s also a push to showcase companies that might complement cannabis culture, such as D.C. vintage clothing store Meeps and the record shop/music venue Songbyrd, which is setting up a record lounge at the festival and is hosting a pre-festival concert with the band Names (2477 18th St. NW; Thu., 8 p.m., $5, ages 21+.). “One of things we’re trying to accomplish with the vendor village is to try to show a little more about cannabis culture — and that goes beyond the immediate ancillary businesses,” Phillips says.

Sprinkled throughout the musical events will be speeches from Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton, D.C. Council member David Grosso and former presidential candidate Jill Stein. There are also several so-called chill zones throughout the RFK grounds, which will include games like giant Jenga, a photo booth and a spa.

NEW YORK RAPPER AND ACTIVIST TALIB KWELI admits that marijuana is not his cause: “That’s for Cypress Hill and Curren$y and people like that,” he says. But “I enjoy marijuana every once in a while.” He may not be the most obvious person, then, to headline the National Cannabis Festival, but he is a proponent for decriminalization. He’s also been active in the opposition to President Trump: Kweli spent a week in D.C. last month meeting with people in Rock Creek Park to discuss ways to resist Trump’s agenda. “It’s important that people who are upset about Trump understand there’s been activism and grassroots work and stuff that needs to be done that existed before Trump,” he says. Ahead of his National Cannabis Festival performance at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Express spoke with Kweli about marijuana, music and more. RUDI GREENBERG (EXPRESS)

How did “The Seven,” your justreleased collaborative album with Styles P, come together? From the time Styles and I worked on a mixtape song back in 2004, we’ve done a lot of music together, a lot of one-off songs. For some reason, whenever I get on a track with Styles, it feels natural. Of course, me and Styles are not Black Star [Kweli’s rap duo with Mos Def], but the same way that people hear me and Mos and they say, “That sounds right,” me and Styles — we sound right together. I don’t know exactly what it is. You were at the Kennedy Center at the end of last year to perform

with Mos Def (aka Yasiin Bey) as Black Star for what were billed as his final performances. I seriously doubt this will be the last time. When somebody like Yasiin Bey says, “I retire,” I think that means, “You don’t control me anymore.” Not that you’ll never see him onstage. I know those shows were marketed as the last Mos Def shows ever but I doubt that will be the case. You don’t think he’s retired? I don’t think artists can retire. I guess he technically retired the name Mos Def but he was so much more than the name. Is there a different vibe

performing at a cannabis festival? Marijuana is so mainstream. If I’m on a plane, I’m assuming most of the people are stoned. I don’t think shows are any different. Do you think cannabis should be legalized on a federal level? I’m not researched enough to speak eloquently on the laws and regulations and stuff. I do believe that all drugs should be decriminalized. One of my favorite movie lines is [from 2008’s] “Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay.” There’s a scene when the rich, white stereotypical guy who works for George Bush catches his wife with a joint and he’s like, “Babe, you can’t smoke joints. Pot — that’s illegal. When you want to take the edge off just do what I do: Snort a Zoloft.” It’s funny but that line — that joke — encapsulates so much that’s wrong with this country. Everyone in this country is a drug addict but only the drugs that the corporations and government can profit on are touted as safe and legal. Sometimes, you’re watching TV [and] every commercial is a drug commercial. How is that different from a drug deal on the corner?

SADIE DINGFELDER | THE STAYCATIONER

Editors are such worrywarts. “Don’t eat that,” they say when you dig into the cherry pie that sat out on the filing cabinet overnight. Or, when you propose shadowing a weed dealer for a story, they say, “That sounds like a bad idea.” So when I told my editor that I wanted to take a duck boat tour, I wasn’t surprised when he brought up the potential for drowning. “I remember reading something about duck boat-related deaths,” he said. “I’m a strong swimmer,” I replied. A little Googling revealed his concern was not entirely without merit. The amphibious vehicles — built by the U.S. military during World War II and later repurposed as rolling, floating tour buses — have been involved in a spate of recent accidents in Philadelphia, Boston and Seattle. A search of The Washington Post archives, however, turned up no such incidents for our local operator, DC Ducks. So, one fine spring day, I bought a ticket online ($37.80 in advance) and climbed aboard. As we rolled away from Union Station, our tour guide began pummeling us with

information. Within minutes, I had involuntarily learned: the number of flags around Columbus Circle (56), the year Union Station opened (1907) and the name of its architect (Daniel Burnham). Our tour guide also mentioned something that I’d heard before but didn’t believe: You know the Roman soldier statues around the ceiling of Union Station? They are naked behind their shields — a fact I later confirmed in the station by simply looking up. As we turned down Pennsylvania Avenue and then Independence Avenue, the green carpet of the Mall unfurled around us. The amphibious vehicle’s elevation, open top and ambling pace were perfect for taking in the stately buildings that flank the Mall and the open spaces around them. As we moseyed down 17th Street, our guide pointed out how the World War II Memorial gracefully framed the Lincoln Memorial in the distance, and we all cooed in appreciation. A little while later, we crossed the Arlington Memorial Bridge and our guide made the announcement we all had been waiting for: Soon we’d be entering the water. My fellow tourists and I all vibrated with excitement as well as in

Water foul: Duck boats are fun, whistles aren’t

DC Ducks pro tip Hold on to your hats — these vehicles lack shock absorbers. response to every pebble and pothole in the road. Shock absorption technology? Apparently not a military priority. “Hold on to your hats,” the driver said. Tourists on the shore applauded as we rolled down a boat ramp into a small lagoon and then puttered onward to the Potomac. “Who wants to try driving this thing?” our driver asked as we entered the broad river. Unable to believe his luck, a boy in a striped shirt scrambled to the front of the boat, stepping on his sister on the way. He steered the boat left and right with a look of intense concentration on his face. “Do any big kids want to go?” the captain said. “Yes!” I

answered, the only adult brave enough to admit it. What is it that makes riding duck boats so enjoyable? Perhaps the fact that they traverse two very different terrains makes them seem futuristic, like Transformers. Or maybe it’s because they are serious military vehicles that we’ve reappropriated into tools of campy fun. That said, the D.C. shoreline — at least the part between the Pentagon and National Airport — isn’t particularly interesting. The adults were somewhat bored by the boat part of the tour, but the kids were captivated by all the different types of vehicles we encountered. A few of them had little fits of joy when we floated under a railroad bridge at the same time a train happened to be crossing overhead. That highlight was followed by the worst part of the tour. In clear violation of the Geneva Convention, our tour guide

handed out duck whistles to everyone on board. The sound they produced was less like waterfowl and more like a hundred beginner trumpet players warming up their mouthpieces while also suffering minor seizures. If you ever hear an actual duck making this sound, call animal control immediately. “When you parents get tired of the duck whistles, two minutes in the microwave will take care of it,” the captain said, referring to whistles, not children, I assume. And that’s when I realized the real flaw in the duck boat design: There’s not a single microwave onboard. Though, toward the end of the tour, the guide did mention a tantalizing possibility. “Quiet down, please,” he said, “or I might have to use the ejector seats.” Next: The Staycationer visits the Library of Congress.

INSTANT THREEPLAY

Drive-By Truckers

GALA’s “In the Heights” is mostly in Spanish with English surtitles.

A different ‘Heights’ You’d think it’d be hard for Luis Salgado to find anything new in the musical “In the Heights.” After all, he was involved as one of the choreographers, creators and original cast members of the Tony-winning musical (written by a pre-“Hamilton” Lin-Manuel Miranda) when the show, about a Latino community in New York City’s Washington Heights, opened on Broadway in 2008. Now, Salgado is directing and choreographing the U.S. premiere of “In the Heights” in Spanish — which, unlike the mostly English-language Broadway show, is mainly in Spanish with English surtitles. With the new translation, Salgado found that a different language meant a different point of view. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)

GALA Hispanic Theatre, 3333 14th St. NW; Thu. through May 21, $60.

On the old-school inspiration for the musical: “When Lin created the show, one of his biggest references was ‘Fiddler on the Roof,’ which is basically the same premise,” Salgado says. “You’re celebrating a community, you’re talking about a heritage and the ways of this community, but the universal topic affects us all. We are all affected or touched by the idea of tradition; we all have our own traditions — [‘In the Heights’] is an extension of that in many ways.” What a New York-centered play can bring to D.C.: “The area where GALA works, in Columbia Heights, is going through the same gentrification as Washington Heights,” he says. “That is reflected in the [characters of]

the salon owners, who have a beautiful relationship with their community, but they have to leave to Salgado the Bronx be cause the cost of living is getting too high. The gentrification is happening all around.” What gets found in translation: “Benny [the only African-American character and the only one who speaks exclusively in English] through the history of the show has always had the conflict of race and language,” Salgado says. “When the show is in English, you don’t always get to delve as deep, I think, as we get to do now, in examining why [a Latino character] is so resistant to [his

daughter] and Benny going out together. It’s in the script that it’s language, it’s culture and race, but we have been able to discover an angle to that conflict. By the time the father comes to him and looks at his face and says, ‘You don’t speak the language,’ the audience gets it.” Se habla espanol (y ingles): “This is for everybody, if you’re Latino or not,” he says. “I have discovered so much about language in this version — the conflict, and the good and the bad that language creates. There are a lot of people who want to celebrate what divides us, what makes us different. I think instead of highlighting what divides us, ‘In the Heights’ is basically about what unites us.”

Kelly Osbourne has no advice for you

Free Admission

BOOKS When the public first met Kelly Osbourne on her family’s reality show “The Osbournes” in 2002, she was — in her own words — “a f---ed-up ugly duckling” teased mercilessly as “worthless celebrity spawn.” Fast-forward more than a decade (and more than a few mishaps, she’s quick to note), and she’s emerged a lavender-haired swan, with stints on “Fashion Police” and “Project Runway: Junior,” and her own fashion and makeup lines. And now everyone wants to know how she did it. “People don’t pick up on your journey until you’ve arrived at your destination,” says Osbourne, 32, whose book “There Is No F*cking Secret: Letters From a Badass Bitch” will be released on Tuesday, a day before her talk with Kelly Cutrone at Sixth & I. “It’s committing to a life change, and it’s a lot easier said than done.” The book is a series of smart, profanity-laden letters from Osbourne — to her parents, to her body, to addiction, to bathroom “seat sprinklers.” She spent more than three years on the book and now that it’s time to share it, she’s terrified people won’t like it. “I

put everything into it, I bared my soul,” she says. “But it’s made me so very vulnerable.” Express talked to Osbourne about fashion, recovery and the misconceptions she wants to shatter.

Why did you write this book? There’s this weird delusion that when you’re famous, you don’t have problems. It’s such the opposite, and I want people to know they’re not alone, that there are other people who go through what they go through and know what it feels like to not want to get out of bed in the morning. I want people to read this and have the courage to start liking themselves, because to not like yourself — or to wish you were someone else — is one of the worst things in the world. You write candidly about your drug addiction and rehabilitation. Is it something you continue to work on? Yes, I’m in therapy. I believe if you’re not in therapy, you’re crazy, because everybody needs a nonbiased perspective into their lives and someone they can talk to. Just last night, I was at dinner

and somebody brought a friend none of us really knew. And he was asking every single person, do you want to get some [cocaine]? I was sitting there nervously and uncomfortably, and finally I was like, ‘no.’ But then I looked at the positive of it — that I actually don’t want to, and it’s not a part of my world anymore. People have this idea that you do drugs for fun, but I did drugs to numb myself because I hated myself and my life. Requisite fashion question: What’s about to be big, and what will soon be out of style? It’s going to be a lot of high-end looks that women wear with sneakers — even Victoria Beckham isn’t wearing the high heels she used to wear every day; she was just wearing a pair of chocolate Adidas with a beautiful black suit. Power suits are coming back for women, and I really hope the ombre and gladiator shoes are going. They didn’t look good on gladiators, so why the f--- are you still trying to wear them?

Why is he in Casablanca? "I was misinformed," explains nightclub owner/war refugee Humphrey Bogart, who won't "stick his neck out for nobody" — until Ingrid Bergman walks in. The film evolved from an unproduced play to a Warner Bros. "B" melodrama to a Bogart/ Bergman star vehicle to a multiple Oscar® winner — and finally, to the cultural icon it remains today. Dialogue was often handed to the cast minutes before shooting, and "As Time Goes By" almost didn't make it in. Just another movie — until the Allied invasion of North Africa right before the premiere made CASABLANCA a prequel to history. An American classic. DIR Michael Curtiz; SCR Julius J.

Following Adolph Hitler's election as Chancellor, and the subsequent banning of Jews from the country's celebrated film industry, more than 800 film professionals escaped from Germany to Hollywood between 1933 and 1939. Among them are some of classic Hollywood's most famous names and celebrated artists: directors Fritz Lang, Billy Wilder, Fred Zinnemann and Henry Koster; actors Peter Lorre, Paul Henreid, Hedy Lamarr, Conrad Veidt and Felix Bressart; composers Franz Waxman, Max Steiner, Frederick Hollander and Erich Wolfgang Korngold; and cinematographer/director Rudolph Maté.

Forty-four years after it was made, this Oscar®-winning classic remains one of the scariest movies ever to darken the silver screen. When her daughter (a split-pea soup-spewing Linda Blair) starts to exhibit some demonic behavior, Georgetown mother (Ellen Burstyn) is forced to turn to a young priest for advice. His diagnosis: demonic possession. The cure: an exorcism, performed by Father Merrin (Max von Sydow).

A child's angelic face conceals a budding sociopath in the audacious, senses-shattering feature directing debut from actor Brady Corbet, with a cast led by Robert Pattinson and Bérénice Bejo. Set amid the turmoil of WWI and its aftermath, this dark domestic nightmare follows the young son of an American diplomat living in France as he learns to manipulate the adults around him — a monstrous coming of age that ominously parallels the rising tide of fascism in Europe. The stylistically fearless tour-de-force reaches fever-pitch delirium thanks to Lol Crawley's ravishing cinematography and a thunderous score by legendary musician Scott Walker.

Martin Rosen's adaptation of the late Richard Adams' novel remains a classic of 20th-century animation, voiced by a fine cast of British stars, including John Hurt, Richard Briers, Ralph Richardson and Denholm Elliott. Adams' stark, often harsh, vision of a community of rabbits driven to search for a new home in the wake of impending destruction and violence is brought to life by naturalistic hand-drawn animation, bucolic watercolor backgrounds and expressionistic flourishes which underscore the film's religious and political subtext. As much an allegory about overcoming tyranny and fear as an adventure tale, WATERSHIP DOWN continues to delight and inspire. DIR/SCR/PROD Martin Rosen, from the novel by Richard Adams.

When his film failed to connect with contemporary audiences of the day, he was told by the studio not to "make movies that make no sense and no money," and was promptly fired.

Carole Lombard ascended to comedic stardom opposite an exquisitely hammy John Barrymore in this fast-paced screwball comedy. Broadway impresario Oscar Jaffe (Barrymore) recasts lingerie model Mildred Plotka (Lombard) as "Lily Garland," making her the star in a hit play and soon his love interest. But the tempestuous relationship between svengali and star leads to an acrimonious split, with Garland cashing in out in Hollywood while Jaffe suffers a string of expensive flops minus his leading lady. A chance meeting on the Twentieth Century Limited transcontinental train offers Jaffe a chance to woo Garland back. Histrionic hilarity ensues!

Alfred Hitchcock's final British picture before departing for the U.S. and REBECCA, was, like that film, based upon a Daphne du Maurier novel. Eighteen-year-old Maureen O'Hara, having recently lost her mother in Ireland, travels to her aunt Patience in Cornwall seeking refuge, but instead finds gothic intrigue. Her uncle is involved with a pirate gang of "wreckers," their boss none other than local squire and justice of the peace Sir Humphrey Pengallan (Charles Laughton).

"TITICUT FOLLIES is a documentary film that tells you more than you could possibly want to know — but no more than you should know — about life behind the walls of one of those institutions where we file and forget the criminally insane. A society's treatment of the least of its citizens — and surely these are the least of ours — is perhaps the best measure of its civilization.

Toshio Matsumoto's shattering, kaleidoscopic masterpiece is one of the most subversive and intoxicating films of the late 1960s: a headlong dive into a dazzling Tokyo night-world of drag queen bars and fabulous divas, fueled by booze, drugs, fuzz guitars, performance art and mascara. Stanley Kubrick cited the film as a direct influence on his own dystopian classic A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. An unknown club dancer at the time, transgender actor Peter (RAN) gives an astonishing performance as Eddie, a hostess at Bar Genet — where she's ignited a violent love triangle with reigning drag queen Leda (Osamu Ogasawara) for the attentions of the club's owner.

In an era in which homosexuality is punishable by imprisonment, Cambridge students Maurice Hall (James Wilby) and Clive Durham (Hugh Grant) keep their romance a secret. When Clive renounces his past, marries and moves to his wealthy wife's rural estate, Maurice continues to visit his former love, attracting the attention of the couple's gamekeeper, Alec Scudder (Rupert Graves). As a new forbidden love blossoms, Maurice is faced with heart-wrenching choices. The supporting cast includes Ben Kingsley, Simon Callow, Billie Whitelaw and Denholm Elliott.

"If I were an architect and I had to build a monument to the cinema," wrote Jean Renoir, "I would place a statue of Julien Duvivier above the entrance." Duvivier made 70 films between 1919 and 1967, many of them landmarks of French cinema. His first postwarWWII project, a noir adaptation of Georges Simenon's "Mr. Hire's Engagement" stars Michel Simon as a reviled voyeur framed for a murder by the girl he adores. Now widely considered the finest Simenon adaptation, but criticized at the time for its bleakness, the longunseen PANIQUE has finally been given the vivid restoration it deserves.

It follows the fortunes of the Schlegel sisters (Thompson and Helena Bonham Carter), who become involved with two couples: a wealthy, conservative industrialist (Anthony Hopkins) and his wife (Vanessa Redgrave), and a workingclass man (Samuel West) and his mistress (Nicola Duffet).

This documentary looks at the iconic filmmaker's art, music and early films, shining a light into the dark corners of his unique world. As Lynch says, "I think every time you do something, like a painting or whatever, you go with ideas, and sometimes the past can conjure those ideas and color them. Even if they're new ideas, the past colors them." We're invited into and given private views from Lynch's compound and painting studio in the hills above Hollywood, as he tells personal stories that unfold like scenes from his films. Strange characters come into focus only to fade again into the past, all leaving an indelible mark. (Note courtesy of Janus Films.)

David Lynch's unsettling masterpiece blends disparate elements — coming-of-age drama, detective story, an ambiguous 1980s setting with 1950s trappings and midnight movie-style madness — into a uniquely Lynchian whole, equal parts seductive and nightmarish.

MULHOLLAND DR. (2001)

Described by Pauline Kael as "the first populist surrealist — a Frank Capra of dream logic," David Lynch has forged a singular path through American filmmaking. Although it took many years to complete, Lynch began his first feature film ERASERHEAD while attending the AFI Conservatory in Los Angeles. This groundbreaking film, which he directed, wrote and produced, became an instant cult classic. Lynch followed this success with THE ELEPHANT MAN and received his first Oscar® nomination for Best Director. Next, with BLUE VELVET, Lynch masterfully blended elements of a nostalgic American pastoral with film noir's urban anomie, plus an occasional touch of kinkiness more typically found in the grindhouse. This has since come to be regarded as the filmmaker's signature style, and the film earned Lynch his second Oscar® nomination for Best Director. WILD AT HEART, the network television sensation TWIN PEAKS and its tricky film prequel TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME as well as LOST HIGHWAY and MULHOLLAND DR. — recently recognized as the best film of the 2000s by Film Comment, and of the 21st century in a BBC poll — all capitalized on his favorite themes: memory, identity and duality.

David Lynch began filming this surrealist horror-fantasy, his first feature-length film, as an AFI Fellow. Featuring a man who lives on the moon, a mutant baby and a girl who lives in a radiator, the film obsessively concerns itself with stark, strange allegories. Lynch's favorite character actor Jack Nance is Henry, who leads a quiet, desperate life until his girlfriend gives birth to a strangely deformed baby. ERASERHEAD's influence is vast, from John Waters and Darren Aronofsky to H.R. Giger; Stanley Kubrick told Lynch it was his favorite film, and he screened it for the cast and crew of THE SHINING before filming, to "put them in the mood." DIR/SCR/PROD David Lynch.

Reinventing Realism — New Cinema from Romania BOX

Since the late 1990s, a group of intellectually adventurous filmmakers have galvanized Romania's post-communist production with a steady stream of nuanced screenplays and robustly realistic films that tackle moral issues and ethical ambiguities, creating taut allegories from banal circumstances. At the same time, these filmmakers, sometimes working collaboratively, have constructed a discourse on societal and civil issues hovering over Europe. Directors involved in the movement include Cristian Mungiu, Cristi Puiu, Corneliu Porumboiu, Radu Muntean and C˘ at˘ alin Mitulescu, as well as a group of younger artists who continue to garner acclaim at international events.

Cristi Puiu’s (THE DEATH OF MR. LAZARESCU, SIERANEVADA) debut feature is a delightfully deadpan road movie, which threw the young filmmaker onto the world stage and inaugurated the Romanian New Wave. When twentysomething slacker Ovidiu (Alexandru Papadopol) decides to launch a snack-selling business, he takes on a dubious job from a local crime boss in order to earn the cash he needs to get started. All he has to do is carry a mysterious bag from his coastal hometown of Constanta to the capital, Bucharest. Hitting the road with his girlfriend (Ioana Flora) and best friend (Dragos Bucur), Ovidiu has no idea what he’s about to get into.

From renowned director Corneliu Porumboiu (POLICE, ADJECTIVE, THE TREASURE), comes a contemplative and characteristically dry-humored tale of a narcissistic director on the edge. With two weeks left before wrapping on his latest project, Paul starts falling apart, complaining about his supposed “ulcer” and insisting that an actress with a small role in the film (with whom he has been romantically engaged throughout shooting) do a nude scene. When the subject isn’t the immediate film shoot, characters are inclined to discourse on and debate various historical and philosophical ideas.

CHILD'S POSE

CHILD'S POSE [POZITIA COPILULUI] Sun, May 14, 7:00

Detained by police after being involved in a fatal traffic accident, intoxicated thirtysomething Barbu (Bogdan Dumitrache) is bailed out by his mother, the formidable Cornelia (Luminit‚a Gheorghiu, in a tour-de-force performance). Bursting onto the scene with her pal Olga (Natasa Raab) in tow, Cornelia takes charge of the situation, letting the cops know she is not to be trifled with. Over the coming days, Cornelia bullies and cajoles everyone involved in deciding her son's fate, but the impassive Barbu, increasingly resentful of her domination, realizes he has a say in the matter, too.

Q&A with actor Gheorghe Visu In the principality of Wallachia, life is more Dark Ages than Age of Enlightenment, even in 1835. Constable Costandin and his son have been dispatched by a nobleman to track down a runaway slave accused of seducing the landowner's wife. Foul-mouthed and quick-tempered, Costandin rides roughshod on the local peasantry in his search, explaining to his teenaged son that he's upholding the social order. Radu Jude won Best Director at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival for this visionary historical epic — a European "eastern" counterpoint to the American Western.

Union members who present their member cards will receive the AFI member discount.

Live musical accompaniment by Alloy Orchestra Tickets $20/$18 AFI Members, card-carrying union members No AFI Member passes accepted Incorporating more than 25 minutes of recently discovered footage, the 2010 restoration of METROPOLIS is the definitive edition of Fritz Lang's science-fiction masterpiece. Like puzzle pieces, these scenes and subplots, long thought lost, help to complete the picture of the dizzyingly intricate plot. In a fabulous city of the future, penthouse-dwelling capitalist bureaucrats hold sway over a subterranean working class, but a prophet from the masses foresees the coming of a new world order. Inspired by New York's skyscrapers, the production design exaggerates verticality, using modernist architecture to reinforce the extreme separation of the classes.

NO GOD, NO MASTER Mon, May 15, 7:00

When package bombs appear on the doorsteps of prominent politicians and businessmen in the summer of 1919, FBI agent William Flynn (David Strathairn) is tasked with finding those responsible. Retelling the story of famed anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti — both Italian immigrants — filmmaker Terry Green explores the disintegration of civil liberties during an era in which immigrants were labeled undesirables and detained for weeks, even months. A timely thriller with eerie parallels to the contemporary war on terrorism, Green calls his film, "a tribute to those who have stood tall for human rights in the face of adversity."

Howard Zinn, Arlo Guthrie and Studs Terkel provide contemporary interviews for this insightful documentary about two Italian immigrants and anarchists — Bartolomeo Vanzetti and Nicola Sacco — who were accused of murder and ultimately executed in Boston in 1927. Their landmark case, which still resonates today, created an international outcry of injustice and brought attention to the plight of immigrants in America.

Filmmakers Leo Hurwitz and Paul Strand enlisted multi-hyphenate actor turned civil rights activist Paul Robeson to narrate NATIVE LAND, a mix of dramatization and archival footage based on the findings of the La Follette Committee's 1938 investigation into the repression of labor organizing during the Great Depression. The beautifully shot and edited film exposes violations of Americans' civil liberties and is a call to action for exploited workers around the country.

Peter Berg's gripping bigbudget dramatization of the events surrounding the explosion of BP/Transocean oil rig Deepwater Horizon on April 20, 2010, chronicles the human cost of a tragedy that killed 11 workers and caused the largest oil spill in U.S. history. The courage and heroism of the men and women working on the rig at the time of the disaster is thrown into sharp relief by the fact that not a single employee of either Transocean or BP was ever prosecuted. The cast includes Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, John Malkovich, Gina Rodriguez and Kate Hudson. Nominated for two Oscars®.

Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) were three brilliant African-American women working for NASA in the early 1960s, who overcame institutional racism and sexism to help achieve one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence in the Space Race. The film is a window into the growth of the federal workforce pursuant to President Roosevelt's Executive Order 8802, which banned "discrimination in the employment of workers in defense industries or government because of race, creed, color or national origin."

Tue, May 16, 7:00

Q&A with filmmaker John Sayles Based on the 1920 showdown between West Virginia coal miners determined to form a union and coal company agents hired to prevent them, MATEWAN is one of the classic films about American labor. As organizer Joe Kenehan (Chris Cooper, in his film debut) explains in trying to unite the miners, "They got you fightin’ white against colored, native against foreign, hollow against hollow, when you know there ain’t but two sides in this world — them that work and them that don’t. You work, they don’t. That’s all you got to know about the enemy." The cast includes Mary McDonnell, David Straithairn, a cameo by James Earl Jones and Will Oldham, better known to indie rock fans as Bonnie 'Prince' Billy. The Oscar-nominated cinematography is by Haskell Wexler. (Note courtesy of Rochester Labor Film Series). DIR/SCR John Sayles; PROD Peggy Rajski, Maggie Renzi. U.S., 1987, color, 135 min. RATED PG-13

Weathering futile retraining schemes, a dead-end Skype interview, criticism from fellow job seekers and the condescension of his unemployment officer, Thierry finally lands work as a supermarket security guard.

The first honest, coming-of-age film for the millennial generation is a hilarious and heartfelt gem from debut director/writer Kelly Fremon Craig. The film stars the unlikely comic duo of Hailee Steinfeld (TRUE GRIT) as high-school junior Nadine and Woody Harrelson as her sardonic history teacher. This raunchy look at growing up in a broken home hits all of the classic tropes with panache — living in the shadow of an older sibling, an absentee mother, nursing a crush on the high-school bad boy and the student-teacher friendship.

Can an impeccably crafted horror film tackle issues of racism and white privilege in America while also inspiring soldout audiences to laugh and clap in unison? Yes it can, and Jordan Peele's (KEY & PEELE) feature debut does so with style, wit and humor. When Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) embarks on a weekend trip to meet his girlfriend's (Allison Williams) parents, he has minor reservations. At first, Chris reads the family's accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's newly revealed interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries leads Chris to a terrifying truth.

Deniz Gamze Ergüven's Oscar®-nominated debut is a powerful portrait of female empowerment set in modern-day Turkey. After five free-spirited sisters are spotted by a neighbor on the beach with their male classmates, the girls' guardians (their hyper-traditional grandmother and uncle) overreact to what they perceive as illicit behavior, banishing all contact with the outside world, and beginning preparations for them all to become obedient brides and good wives. As the eldest sisters are married off, the younger siblings band together to avoid the same fate. The fierce love between sisters engenders the strength to rebel and chase a future where they can determine their own lives. DIR/SCR Deniz Gamze Ergüven; SCR Alice Winocour; PROD Charles Gillibert.

*Q&A with filmmaker Pamela Tom on Jun 21 When former Disney animator and painter Tyrus Wong died in December 2016 at 106, obituaries told of a man whose life reads like an epic of the 20th century. From his birth in China in 1910 to a difficult immigration experience as a small boy and penurious upbringing in Los Angeles' Chinatown, Wong worked his way through art school and eventually found work in Disney's animation studio. When pre-production on BAMBI bogged down due to problems with overcrowding in the background of the early artwork, it was Wong's new landscape sketches — modeled on Song Dynastystyle landscape painting — that took the film in a bold new direction.

Oddisee and Good Compny

SAT & SUN, MAY 6 & 7

Amir Mohamed el Khalifa, the District-born rapper who performs as Oddisee, has made a political album that isn’t topical. You won’t hear any Trump rants or not-my-president screeds on “The Iceberg,” released in February. “What is there to fear?” Oddisee raps on “NNGE,” which has a chorus that includes a shoutout to the D.C. suburbs. “I’m from black America, this is just another year.”

FILM

Filmfest DC

Bethesda native Rachel Feinstein appeared in Pete Holmes’ HBO series, “Crashing,” and she makes regular appearances on “Inside Amy Schumer.” In fact, Schumer presented and appears in Feinstein’s Comedy Central special “Only Whores Wear Purple.” The connection between the two should give you insight into Feinstein’s kind of humor, though she also has a wide range of characters at her disposal.

After nearly going under a few years back, Filmfest DC is roaring back with a slate full of both American and international features, shorts and documentaries. Contemporary issues take center screen here, with films about worldwide immigration (including opening night’s “This Is Our Land”), education (the documentary “Backpack Full of Cash”) and conflicts abroad (“Last Men in Aleppo,” which took a Grand Jury Prize for documentary films at Sundance).

Drafthouse Comedy, 1100 13th St. NW; Thu., 7 p.m., Fri., 8 & 10 p.m., Sat., 7 & 9 p.m., $25.

SHOPPING

Arijit Singh

Record Store Day

In America, Arijit Singh is far from a household name. But in his homeland of India, Singh is renowned as one of the country’s brightest stars. The 29-year-old singer, composer and producer has built up a massive cannon of (often romantic and soulful) songs used in various Bollywood films. This weekend, he brings those songs (and maybe a few others) to life for an audience in Fairfax during his American arena tour. EagleBank Arena, 4500 Patriot Circle, Fairfax; Fri., 8:30 p.m., $79-$499.

The 10-year-old event encourages the public to visit local record stores and buy limited-edition vinyl: 12” singles by Prince and Jane’s Addiction, reissues of Thelonious Monk and Notorious B.I.G. albums, a box with every Ramones single from 1976 to 1979. Most releases are rare, so shops won’t get too many copies. If there’s something you’re dying to have, get to a record store before it opens. Reliable retailers in the area include Crooked Beat in Alexandria, which opens at 9 a.m. with free swag bags for the CONTINUED ON PAGE 30

Sun. MUSIC

D.R.A.M. Virginia native D.R.A.M. (which stands for Does. Real. Ass. Music.) broke out last year with the pianoand flute-laden “Broccoli,” his Billboard-charting collaboration with Lil Yachty. D.R.A.M. followed up that single with his debut album, “Big Baby D.R.A.M.,” which has thus far spun two more singles: “Cute” and “Cash Machine.” Sunday, the rapper headlines a show on the George Washington University campus. Lisner Auditorium, 730 21st St. NW; Sun., 6 p.m., $30.

Tue. STAGE

‘Macbeth’ The Thane of Cawdor takes to the stage again at the Shakespeare Theatre. The Bard’s play (which is allegedly cursed; saying its name is bad luck) gets a new look from director Liesl Tommy, but don’t worry — it’s still about ambition, politics and a whole lot of murder. Howard graduate Nikkole Salter stars as the Lady, who spurs her husband on in his quest to fulfill a prophecy that he shall be king. That’s the thing with prophecies — sometimes it turns out you end up not actually liking the outcome. Shakespeare Theatre’s Sidney Harman Hall, 610 F St. NW; Tue.-May 28; $25-$118.

SATURDAY

Sarah Silverman The Theater at MGM National Harbor, 101 MGM National Ave., Oxon Hill, Md.; Sat., 8 p.m., $54.09-$185.

As a comedian whose work has largely focused on mining big laughs from such topics as sex and dating, bodily functions and religion, Sarah Silverman has taken a serious and political turn over the last year. A Bernie Sanders supporter who became an outspoken critic of President Trump, Silverman is taking her left-leaning laughs to Hulu, which just signed her up for a weekly show called “I Love You, America,” in which she’ll get to know folks who don’t see things quite like she does.

Be our guest for this tale as old as time. This breathtaking musical features the animated film’s Academy Award®winning score. Blood Knot: Joy Zinoman stages Athol Fugard’s masterpiece. “Riveting…Winds itself up to epic heights.” (Washington Post) A Human Being Died That Night: A post-Apartheid interrogation by Nicholas Wright, dir by Logan Vaughn. “A new high bar for Mosaic” (Wa Po) This Tony Award musical explores the love, hope and heartbreak of a tightly knit multicultural community buzzing with hip hop, salsa and merengue. If you’ve ever seen Sun’s virtuosic performance style, you’ll want to experience it again… and if not, you must not miss the chance to be transported to Pike St. This wildly popular interactive comedy whodunit keeps the audiences laughing as they try to outwit the suspects and catch the killer. New clues and up to the minute improvisation deliver “shrieks of laughter night after night.” (Washington Post) Power struggles ensue, plots are hatched, and magical forces intervene to ensure a just outcome for all involved! Ages 8 and up.

truth is in the proof The director tried to head off controversy with attention to detail

FILM Sometimes the facts are the most important parts of a work of fiction. “The Promise,” out tomorrow, is a love story between Mikael (Oscar Isaac) and Ana (Charlotte Le Bon), both Armenians in the Ottoman Empire (now Turkey) during its last days. As World War I erupts, the Turkish government turns on its citizens of Armenian descent, eventually killing more than a million of them in executions, forced labor and death marches. The official position of the Turkish government is that what a majority of historians call the Armenian genocide never happened — that the deaths were merely collateral damage from the war, not targeted murders. That made it tricky for director and co-writer Terry George. Luckily, he’d been through similar situations before. “On ‘In the Name of the Father,’ the British press attacked it for two reasons,” he says, referring to the script he co-wrote for the fact-based 1993 film about the British imprisonment of a group of people falsely implicated in an IRA bombing in the 1970s. “They said [prisoner] Gerry Conlon wasn’t in the same cell as his father, which he wasn’t — he was in the cell next to him, but that’s hard to shoot. The other was, at the end in the court, the judge says, ‘Can you approach the bench?’ and they don’t say that in British court. So those two items became the basis on which the film was attacked.” For “The Promise,” fact thus became an integral part of fiction.

OPEN ROAD FILMS

EVENTS DC PRESENTS:

“The Promise” follows a love story between Mikael (Oscar Isaac) and Ana (Charlotte Le Bon), Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire.

“I’ve learned to catalogue and very carefully research all those [real] events.” TERRY GEORGE, explaining how important it is to get the details right when you’re telling a controversial story like “The Promise”

“I was extremely fastidious on the real political moments that the story tells. All these historical moments, I can cite several historians,” he says. “I’ve learned to catalogue and very carefully research all those [real] events. I’ve learned that those little things are very important.” Sometimes, though, it’s not the little things — just the simple fact that “The Promise” says that the Armenian genocide happened has turned into a very big thing. Users of an online Turkish message board have

launched an online campaign to tank the movie’s ratings, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Since the movie debuted at the Toronto Film Festival last year, the film has received more than 120,000 ratings on IMDb — and over 61,000 of them are one-star. George shrugs off the controversy, seeming more irritated at “The Ottoman Lieutenant,” a short-run movie released earlier this year about an American nurse and an Ottoman officer during WWI that was more sympathetic to the Turkish side. (“They even used our font on the poster!”) But he’s confident his film contains more truth than that one, even if his plot is largely fictional. “It’s a distillation of history; you’re boiling down the emotions and the events,” he says. “Don’t create an event that you pretend to be real; that will distort the overall argument of the film.” And the argument of “The Promise” is simple: The story may be fictional, but the history is fact.

The revival of vinyl

BOOKS

Judd Apatow plans for ‘Sick in the Head’ sequel Filmmaker Judd Apatow, known for comedies such as “Knocked Up” and “This Is 40,” is putting together a sequel to his best-seller from 2016, “Sick in the Head,” which featured conversations with Mel Brooks, Jerry Seinfeld and other comedians. The new book, called “Sicker in the Head,” will include talks with Norman Lear, Kevin Hart and Whitney Cummings. Random House, which announced the book Wednesday, said no release date has been set. Apatow is donating author proceeds from his new book to charity. (AP)

Record stores have not only survived the onslaught of pirated music, digital downloads and online streaming services — they’re now growing in numbers. Ahead of the 10th annual Record Store Day on Saturday, here’s a brief look at vinyl’s continuing resurgence. DAVID SHARP (AP)

13M 2.4K 1.6K 12 The number of vinyl records sold in 2016, according to Nielsen Music. This number has grown from fewer than 1 million records per year in 2005. And money is being invested in expanding production capacity.

The number of independent record stores around the nation today. This number previously leveled off at about 2,000 before steadily growing over the past five years. The resurgence in vinyl sales is certainly helping.

The number of record stores taking part in Saturday’s Record Store Day. Chris Brown, an employee of store chain Bull Moose Music, hatched the idea in 2007 for an event that started the next year with just 200 stores.

The number of cities that the second annual Record Store Crawl will visit. The tour, organized by Warner Music, escorts participants by bus to local record stores. The first event is Saturday in New York and D.C.’s stop is on July 29.

“So Juicero invented Capri Sun a couple decades late, plus a $400 machine to put it in a cup for you.” @ANDBREI, tweeting about the Juicero, a machine that squeezes prepackaged bags of juice. The startup, Juicero Inc., was profiled in Bloomberg Technology because investors realized that the juice packs can be squeezed by hand just as well as by the $400 machine. “At least two Juicero investors were taken aback after finding the packs could be squeezed by hand,” Ellen Huet and Olivia Zaleski wrote. Bloomberg even tested the machine against hand squeezing and found that the Juicero — which has received around $120 million in startup capital — took two minutes to squeeze about what a human could manage in a minute and a half.

“I couldn’t escape Rachel Dolezal because I can’t escape white supremacy. And it is white supremacy that told an unhappy and outcast white woman that black identity was hers for the taking.” IJEOMA OLUO, writing for The Stranger in what the outlet called “the last piece you’ll ever need to read about Rachel Dolezal.” Through interviewing Dolezal, Oluo realizes it is white supremacy that enabled her story to take place and be heard.

“The White House has officially been Gronk’d.” @NFLDRAFTUPDATE, reacting after Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski interrupted Sean Spicer’s White House press briefing to ask if he needed any help. The stunt, during the team’s Wednesday visit to the White House, was very on-brand for Gronkowski, who is often called by his nickname, Gronk, and is known for his funny antics. Spicer, a Patriots fan from Rhode Island, didn’t need any help, but appreciated the gesture.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Getting it all done may not be as easy as “one, two, three,” but you can certainly do it if you are willing to ignore the clock. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Perfection is not something anyone can attain, but it is a worthy goal you can pursue with dedication. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You’ll want to measure your progress in a new way, but take care you are not giving yourself an unfair advantage. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You’ll want to be sure your immediate environment is as uncluttered as your thoughts must be. Don’t let a mess control you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You’re eager for someone in authority to call you out for a job well done, but you must be realistic. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) The sooner you take care of the business at hand, the sooner you can move on to personal affairs that are more fun. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) What goes on in and around the house needn’t be shared with anyone outside the immediate family. You certainly don’t want it to be. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Fetus already more athletic than you are

[Insert clever ‘Pretty Woman’ headline here] People magazine has named Julia Roberts the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” for a record fifth time. The magazine announced Roberts’ selection on Wednesday. The 49-year-old actress previously claimed the cover spot in 2010, 2005, 2000 and 1991. Roberts, who won an Academy Award for “Erin Brockovich,” says she is “very flattered” by the experience. (AP)

Serena Williams appeared to announce on Snapchat on Wednesday that she is pregnant. The tennis star posted a photo of herself in the mirror with a caption reading, “20 weeks.” The image was later removed from her Snapchat. A spokeswoman for Williams confirmed late Wednesday that the tennis star is pregnant and due in the fall. That means Williams, 35, won the Australian Open in January while pregnant, The New York Times noted. Williams has not played in a tournament since; she pulled out of more recent events, citing a knee injury. She is on the entry list for next month’s Madrid Open. In December, she got engaged to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. (EXPRESS)

Seth Rogen, who played a new dad battling a fraternity in “Neighbors,” has joined the Pi Kappa Alpha chapter at the University of Vermont. Rogen paid a visit to the fraternity Monday after the brothers raised $32,000 for his Hilarity for Charity. He was inducted as an honorary member in what the school calls a “top-secret ceremony.” Rogen wrote on Twitter that he’s “proud to be a Pike.” (AP)

Victoria Beckham was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire on Wednesday. Prince William presented her with the award at Buckingham Palace. “I’m proud to be British,” she said in a statement. Beckham was accompanied by her parents and her husband, retired soccer star David Beckham. The couple’s children did not attend. British Olympian Jessica Ennis-Hill and British actor Mark Rylance also received honors. (AP)

A source told the publication that she was “strolling along casually” down a grass walking path that stretches throughout the grounds.
