PROGRAM: What We Love This Week (November 10-November 16)

The latest installment in Andy Graydon's super 8 film endeavors, Vostok, Faretheewell, tells the story of a Japanese transplant in Berlin--a tourist who gets the chance to create a 3-D computer model for a spaceship in a science fiction film. Sounds heady (LMAKprojects, 139 Eldridge St., Wednesday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Sunday, noon-6 p.m., free).

Take in the 34-year career of DA Robert M. Morgenthau (opens Sunday, Museum of Jewish Heritage).

Check out Cuban artist Ana Mendieta's  unique methods of creation (Galerie Lelong, 528 West 26th).

 

 

See African Grammy Award-winning Angelique Kidjo's "The Sound of the Drum," which follows the unique beats of African percussion through time (8 p.m. Thursday, Carnegie Hall, $13.50 to $74). Kidjo released an album, OYO, earlier this month, performed for UNICEF in May and appeared at the 2010 World Cup Kick Off Concert. She is known as "Africa's Premier Diva." We say this is a show worth seeing.

Benefiting the Urban Arts Partnership, which brings the arts into the city's classrooms, the night features A-list names such as Claire Danes, Sarah Silverman, America Ferrera, Christopher Meloni and Kyra Sedgwick.

The exhibit includes not just art, but documents, books, artifacts, a Ric Burns documentary and an art installation by famed Puerto Rican artist Antonio Martorell. This exhibition is on the pulse of New York's cultural landscape.  (1230 Fifth Avenue, at 104th street, Tuesday-Sunday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.).
