Gary Gray; Stars: O'Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell. In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation.

*TEN (2002 – NR) 94 min. Director: Abbas Kiarostami. Ten deliberately plays with the title of this series—Cities on Screen—for the glimpse we get of Tehran is unlike any we might expect from such an innocuously titled work. Originally shot on digital video, Ten offers up a series of vignettes that revolve around a woman, played by Mania Akbari, as she drives herself and others around the city. Along the way, we play witness to dramas that distill the gendered complexities of family life, selfhood and desire in contemporary Iran. Though minimalist from A to Z, in Kiarostami’s universe less is always more. As Werner Herzog proclaimed, “We are living in the era of Kiarostami, but don’t yet know it.” Part of the Cities on Screen series (http://bufilm.blogs.bucknell.edu/cities-on-screen/). Sponsored by the Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity & Gender and the Departments of Geography and Sociology & Anthropology at Bucknell University. Free
