SURVEILLANCE: DOCUMENTARY AND THE HIDDEN CAMERA
NASHER MUSEUM—Some of us who attended last year's Full Frame Documentary Film Festival saw a deeply strange short called The Intimacy of Strangers, which was a montage of people talking away on their cell phones in public places—as the title suggests, the experience is both familiar and alienating. Now, filmmaker Eva Weber joins a panel that includes her producer Samantha Zarzosa and Duke profs David Paletz, Ariel Dorfman and Timothy Lenoir in a discussion of privacy in the age of high technological and inquisitive governments. Also on the cinematic double-bill is Tajne Tasmy SB (Secret Tapes), which broadcasts two decades worth of surveillance films made by the Polish secret police. The event begins at 7 p.m. and is free.

RALEIGH
CHRIS DIFFORD ACOUSTIC TRIO
THE POUR HOUSE—On first blush, it's an idea that feels opportunistic and destined for the novelty bin, but first listen reveals it to be a brilliant stroke. On South East Side Story, ex-Squeeze co-leader Chris Difford reimagines his old band's catalogue as country and folk-rock songs. Striking harmony vocals from Dorie Jackson and pedal steel accents serve to ratchet the kitchen sink drama of "Up the Junction" and locate the inner Bakersfield of "Another Nail in My Heart." Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are $17-$20. —Rick Cornell
