Tuesdays through Jan. 21 at 7:30 p.m. at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, 550 Winslow Way E. $10-$12; Students free with valid ID. Join BIMA for five weeks of films curated by tj Faddis. This series features foreign-language films which contain an astonishing element: a twist in plot or character, an unexpected profound truth, or the whole plot-line is so original that movie-viewers cannot guess where this film will take them. Rest assured, you’ll “never see it coming”, but you’ll be glad to bear witness. Jan. 21 film: “Tel Aviv on Fire”. In this clever comedy, we have a funny, perfectly balanced comedy on a very serious topic, which could only have been written by someone who has their feet and dear friends on both sides of the conflict. https://www.biartmuseum.org/calendar-events/
