September 2015 Events
Sept. 4: The Son's Room
Director: Nanni Moretti, Italy/France 200--A portrait of a closely knit Italian family whose contented middle-class existence is shattered with the accidental death of their teenage son.
Sept. 11: Pagdi, The Honour--Feature Film Screening from the Twin Rivers Media Festival
Director: Rajeev Bhatia, India, 2014--The story of a man who loses his reputation and respect in society due to his son’s love interest. The film deals with inter-caste marriage woes and how eventually, parents come to realize the need to respect their children’s choices irrespective of social pressures. The title is a metaphor of how a typical family’s honour is at stake if their children decide to marry outside their socio-economic milieu.
Sept. 18: Volver
Director: Pedro Almodóvar, Spain, 2006--Set in Spain, this is a generational story of three women: a good mother who is desperately in love with a man who is far from being a saint; a young mother carrying a hard life upon her shoulders; and an illegal hairdresser whose shop is the meeting point for all the neighborhood gossips.
Sept. 25: Y Tu Mamá También
Director: Alfonso Cuarón, Mexico, 2000--In Mexico, two teenage boys and an attractive older woman embark on a road trip and learn a thing or two about life, friendship, sex, and each other.

At The Courtyard Gallery and Agency, we know that good design is more than just pretty pictures. In order for design to be successful to your company, it must be smart, eye-catching, and relevant. It is the ideas that move the design, which in turn moves your product or service.
We are a full service design studio focusing on print design, logo creation, web design and development, and more. Check out all that the Courtyard offers under the services tab above.
Of course not everything we do is commercial. We are also supportive of the arts. Get directions and stop by the Gallery while in Asheville to check out some of the best work from artists across the country.
