The CDC continues to study the spread and effects of the novel coronavirus across the United States. They now know from recent studies that a significant portion of individuals with coronavirus lack symptoms (“asymptomatic”) and that even those who eventually develop symptoms (“pre-symptomatic”) can transmit the virus to others before showing symptoms. This means that the virus can spread between people interacting in close proximity—for example, speaking, coughing, or sneezing—even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms. In light of this new evidence, CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.

“Set in 1980s Saigon, well before the U.S. embargo on Vietnam was lifted in 1994, SONG LANG depicts a gritty underworld whose only source of brightness comes from the gorgeous stage productions of a local opera troupe. A hunky, brooding debt collector forms an unlikely friendship with the charismatic lead actor of the struggling company, and their friendship, to their surprise, awakens feelings in both men.
“Song Lang” is a percussion instrument used to control tempo and phrasing in Vietnamese modern folk opera. In the Vietnamese language, it also means “two men.” It is the perfect homonym for a nearly perfect film.”

"A powerful examination of the global refugee crisis from the overlooked perspective of LGBT asylum seekers, UNSETTLED follows four brave individuals from Africa and the Middle East who have fled homophobic violence sanctioned by their home countries and families of origin. Beginning anew, Cheyenne and Mari (Angolan), Subhi (Syrian), and Junior (Congolese) face immense barriers to securing work, housing, and legal assistance. Fighting isolation and depression, they share stories that form an unflinching picture of nearly insurmountable challenges."

“Two very different families spend their holidays in the same house by the seaside: the aristocratic Castelvecchios are open-minded and eccentric, whereas the working-class Petagnas are tight-knit southerners united around their firm family values. Only the two middle-aged heads of the families know what has brought such distant worlds together on this summer holiday. When an unexpected engagement is announced, the lives of all are turned upside down. With the wedding already set for three weeks, chaos and catastrophe reign on this seemingly ordinary summer.”

Set in sunny Italy, An Almost Ordinary Summer is the story of two very different families wrestling with the news of their two patriarchs marrying each other -- when they hadn’t known they were gay.

“The Castelvecchio are a family of eccentrics, they have an open mind, but they are
narcissistic and disunited. The Petagna’s are the opposite: very close-knit people,
from a more humble social background, with traditional but conservative values. Why
do these two, so different families, find themselves spending their summer holidays
together? Only the heads of families, Tony (Fabrizio Bentivoglio) and Carlo
(Alessandro Gassmann) know: the unexpected announcement of their love will disrupt
the balance of the two families, but especially those of Penelope (Jasmine Trinca) and
Sandro (Filippo Scicchitano), their respective firstborn children.”
