On their way from Dakar, Senegal to St. Louis, seven travelers sing their stories in Saint Louis Blues (Un Transport En Commun), the 48-minute 2009 Jacques Demy (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg)-style musical and Sundance Film Festival selection by Dyana Gaye (Ousmene).

Zimbabwean dancer-choreographer Nora Chipaumire is showcased in Alla Kovgan and David Hinton's 35-minute 2008 short Nora. The New York Times said it "succeeds in combining a rough personal narrative with poetic, allusive imagery."

Saint Louis Blues and Nora screen tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the 16th Annual Black Harvest International Film and Video Festival at the Gene Siskel Film Center, 164 N. State St. $9.
