Robert and Robin Burr
The Fencer at Gables Cinema
An elite Estonian fencer hiding from Stalin’s secret police in the 1950s finds safe haven working as a teacher in a remote village, but his rapport with the students in his fencing club arouses the jealousy of the school’s principal and jeopardizes his safety. Based on the true life story of Endel Nelis, The Fencer is an affecting portrait of a decent man who risks his life to uphold a bond of trust with his students. Coral Gables Art Cinema is located at 260 Aragon. Call 786-385-9689 or visit the web site for details. http://www.gablescinema.org

Last Curtain: Informed Consent at GableStage
Morality and bioethics collide on stage. With genomic breakthroughs happening at breakneck speed, we can learn more about what our futures may hold than ever before. But how much should we know? And who gets to decide? An electrifying new play by Deborah Zoe Laufer, one of the most exciting voices in American theater, Informed Consent is a powerful drama about one woman’s quest to answer the mysteries of science and her own life. Inspired by a landmark court case between one of the country’s largest universities and a Native American tribe based in the Grand Canyon, Informed Consent takes us into the personal and national debate about science v. belief, and whether our genetics defines our fate. The play begins this weekend and continues through August 27. GableStage is located at the Biltmore Hotel, 1200 Anastasia Ave. Call 305-445-1119. http://www.gablestage.org
