10 Things Going on in Cleveland this Weekend (February 28 – March 2) 

Through a series of interviews, director Kerry Candaele deconstructs Beethoven's Ninth Symphony in the documentary Following the Ninth: In the Footsteps of Beethoven's Final Symphony. Over the years, the work has been used in a variety of political and social contexts, inspiring activists to take on Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet and protesters to rise up at China's Tiananmen Square. Every December, a huge choir sings "Ode to Joy" in Japan. The movie captures the various contexts in which the music still resonates. It screens 8:55 tonight and at 3:30 p.m. tomorrow at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
