Falling is currently the number one cause of serious injury in older adults, so good balance is an extremely important aspect of maintaining an active lifestyle as we age. Fortunately, balance can be improved through a variety of strength and flexibility exercises. This class will teach and reinforce basic skills to help maintain and improve balance in order to prevent the occurrence of falls.

While most balance exercises do not require equipment, we are pleased to incorporate our new balance exercise tools provided by a Smithville Charitable Foundation grant. Materials such as wooden wobble boards, foam balance pads, and Therabands help strengthen muscles associated with balance and coordination. Payment options are available upon request.

Kinsey Institute Art Exhibits

Morrison Hall, Room 313, 1165 E. Third Street

The Kinsey Institute is offering two exhibits this season, featuring a mix of artwork from the archives along with several paintings borrowed from private collections. “Beauty and the Beast: The Erotic Art of Ian Hornak” showcases a major gift of drawings and paintings from the estate of 20th century American artist Ian Hornak. Although best known for his photo-realist landscapes, Hornak’s early work from the late 1960s often focused on the nude figure, at times combining human and animal anatomy. “Flora” presents a broad selection of photographs, prints, paintings, sculptures and books that feature plant or landscape imagery. Due to adult content, visitors should be 18 years of age or older, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.

The Kinsey Institute Gallery opens on Monday, January 27 for self-guided tours, 1:30 to 4:30 pm M-F or by appointment during business hours. Guided group tours may be scheduled by calling 812-855-7686 or emailing [email protected]. Admission is free. The Kinsey Institute is located at Indiana University, Morrison Hall, Room 313, Bloomington IN 47405. Telephone: (812) 323-1727. www.KinseyInstitute.org The Kinsey Institute is closed all Indiana University holidays.

IU Cinema Presents: ‘La Hija Natural’

07:00 pm
IU Cinema (1213 E. 7th Street)

Spurred by the sudden death of her mother, Maria embarks on a quest to find her absent father. Her travels take her to an abandoned banana plantation in a neighboring town where she encounters taciturn widower Joaquin, and his Haitian domestic worker Polo Montifa. Justiniano, a mysterious stranger from Puerto Rico, complicates matters in this magical realist melodrama. The first Dominican feature film directed by a woman, La Hija Natural was the Dominican Republic’s official submission to the 84th Academy Awards® for best foreign language film. The film will be preceded by the short film Chimbumbe (2008), directed by Antonio Coello. In Spanish language with English subtitles. (HD Cam presentation)

Inspired by the reflections of scholars Stuart Hall and Paul Gilroy on the roots and routes of black identity, this series is a glimpse into the vibrancy of contemporary Caribbean filmmaking. These films deal with the legacies of migration to and from the region, as well as the tug of close familial and distant ancestral links. Representing the Caribbean’s linguistic and cultural diversity, Roots/Routes especially emphasizes woman-directed and women-centered films as integral to a truly dynamic Caribbean cinema culture. Sponsored by the Black Film Center/Archive, Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, Minority Languages and Cultures Program, and IU Cinema. Special thanks to Nzingha Kendall.
