The Tao of Bluegrass- A Portrait of Peter Rowan There are only a few Blue Grass Boys still around that played with the Father of Bluegrass, Bill Monroe. Peter Rowan was a Blue Grass Boy in the 1960s for only a short time, but Bill's influence and musical knowledge still resonates with Peter. Even as he branched out into his own music after leaving Bill's band, his bluegrass roots were never far away. This portrait of Peter expands beyond his music to his artistic and spiritual endeavors spanning four decades, giving the viewer an in-depth look at a true legend within our Americana musical history. His lyrical quality and melodies are memorable, and Peter influenced the next generation of musicians, sharing what Monroe taught him and what he has learned while being a troubadour and traveling the world. April 27, 6:30pm. The Belfry, 302 Main St., Sisters. $8 online, $10 at the door.

The Invisible War An investigative documentary about the rape of soldiers within the U.S. military, the institutions that perpetuate and cover up its existence, and its personal and social consequences.

COCC Hitchcock Auditorium, 2600 NW College Way. 541-383-7590. Free.

Happy The Spiritual Awareness Community of the Cascades presents a film from director Roko Belic that sets out to answer this question: What makes people happy? From the bayous of Louisiana, to the deserts of Namibia, from the beaches of Brazil, to the villages of Okinawa, the movie explores the secrets and the science behind our most valued emotion. Thurs May 1, 7:30 pm. Old Stone Church, 157 NW Franklin Ave. $4 suggested donation.

Particle Fever The Hadron Collider is world history's biggest and most expensive experiment, essentially looking to recreate conditions that existed just moments after the Big Bang and to find the Higgs boson, the so-called God's particle which potentially would explain the origin of all matter. (Spoiler alert: Um, they do it!) And this film has a front-row seat, documenting six leading scientists as they crash particles together. Sponsored by Sisters Science Club, this screening remarkably involves a short lecture and Q&A with Larry Price, one of the guys (read: one of the particle physicists who was a member of the team; i.e., rock star!). Thurs May 1, 7 pm. Sisters Movie House, 720 E Desperado Trail, Sisters. $7.
