Foreign Film Screening: Osama

Foreign Film Screening: Osama

Join HI-Boston for popcorn, a film and discussion.

Osama(2003 - Afghanistan - PG-13)

Run-Time: 83 Minutes

This month, HI-Boston will be showing Osama, a unique look back at the challenges of life under the Taliban regime in the 1990s. The film is told through the perspectives of three women from three different generations, all part of a single family. Each woman has lost the respective males in their lives due to the various wars that have plagued Afghanistan. Since none of the older women can work and have no other source of income, they are forced to have their pre-teen daughter masquerade as a boy. The story gets difficult when the Taliban recruit all of the boys for military training. HI-Boston will provide handouts with additional background about the Taliban regime, interesting facts and discussion questions for those that attend. See you there!

Her songwriting tells of triumph in hopes to inspire many to live, love, and forgive.

Her biggest vocal influences are Stevie Wonder and Erykah Badu. Taylor leads a nine-piece group that released a debut album, In the Meantime, last July, and is working on a second album to be released this summer.

Taylor is a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music, earning a degree in Professional Music. She is lead vocalist in two Boston-based wedding bands, Silver Arrow Band and Bait & Switch. She is also a vocalist and trumpet player for the 18-piece big band Thinkin Big, which has embarked on two musical tours hitting venues in Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, and Rochester, has released two albums (Mile 524 and Border Patrol), had the privilege of opening for Jerry Bergonzi and Garzone and the Fringe at The Lily Pad, and was asked to play at the renowned Litchfield Jazz Festival this summer.

Pierogi Night

Do you love pierogi as much as we do? Eastern European music and dancing? Come prove it! On Thursday, August 7 Cuisine en Locale will team up with three local bands to create an evening to remember!

We're making pierogi stuffed with mushrooms, pierogi stuffed with pork, and our favorite, dill pickle soup! ???????


The Somerville Symphony Orkestar ( is an all-original Gyspy-Punk band. Formed in 2009, the SSO has been constantly gaining notice from many of the music scenes in and around New England. With the success of their first album, the SSO has shared the stage with the Rebirth Brass Band, Melvin Seal and the Gerry Garcia Band, and Jack Sonni (from the Dire Straits) among others. The SSO beats Balkan music, Klezmer, Funk, and Punk into a funk-punky pulp. The complex arrangements reign in the chaos only to explode into equal parts mosh-pit and horah.

Karikatura ( makes life-affirming, body-shaking music that moves people around the world. While the band has toured everywhere from Japan to Brazil, New York City is home. With bright horns, socially conscious lyrics and booty-bouncing beats, Karikatura delivers real songs that transcend style and genre.

Cocek! Brass Band ( is the brainchild of trumpet player Sam Dechenne. The band performs original music by Dechenne based on the sounds of Eastern European brass bands. They are a 5-piece group (2 trumpets, trombone, tuba and bass drum) that rocks the house on a very regular basis. The band's members come from internationally touring ensembles like John Brown's Body and Itzhak Perlman and bring a blend of dance music with emotive improvisation and melodies that evoke crazy dancing, contemplative thoughts and good times. This is not a band to be missed.
