Engaging in “live phrase sampling” or “looping,” Keller Williams uses an armory of technical toys to create samples on stage, then layers them on top of one another.

THU APR 19 Sami Blood

Elle-Marja, 14, is a reindeer-breeding Sámi girl — an indigenous, Scandinavian race that has been the victim of ethnic bigotry and systemic cultural suppression in Norway, Sweden and other Nordic countries. Taken from her home and sent to a state school, as she is exposed to the racism of the 1930’s and race biology examinations in her classroom, she starts dreaming of another life. To achieve it, she has to become someone else and break all ties with her family and culture. Told in flashback, Sami Blood is a beautiful, haunting film, anchored by a startlingly accomplished lead performance. Starring Lene Cecilia Sparrok and Mia Erika Sparrok. In Lapp and Swedish with English subtitles. Running time: 110. Rated PG. 7:00 p.m. $10

MON MAY 21 Dirtbag: The Legend of Fred Beckey Fred Beckey is a towering figure whose innumerable first ascents cemented his legacy as one of the greatest climbers of all time. Dirtbag: The Legend of Fred Beckey looks back at this singular life, following the nonagenarian climber over the last decade as he’s slowed but never stopped doing what he loves most. Beckey, like so many people of great accomplishment, is a controversial figure, having alienated fellow climbers by stealing their routes (and even their girlfriends). While the film delves into those peccadilloes, it is ultimately an affectionate portrait of a remarkable man in the sunset of his career. Running time: 95 minutes. 7:00 p.m. $10
