For years a musician friend of mine had a Far Side cartoon tacked to his fridge showing the afterlife. Those entering heaven were being handed harps. Those headed the other direction were greeted with, "Welcome to hell ... here's your accordion." So when I watched the trailer for tonight's film at the Lon Chaney Theater (221 E. Kiowa St., ifsoc.org), I couldn't help but think of Gary Larson's genius. The Wind Journeys is a folk tale of sorts set in Colombia, about the squeezebox of the devil himself. According to the story, the evil one lost it in a bet, then placed a curse on it, causing anyone who plays it to be "doomed to live the life of a troubadour." Tickets are $5 to $6; the film starts at 7. — Jill Thomas
