Notes: Celebrating this weekend's 29th-annual Mermaid Parade in Coney Island, Brooklyn. Thousands of mermen and mermaids don their glittering scales and swim to this annual event. The parade pays homage to the Coney Island Mardi Gras parades of the early 20th century. Like a briny chorus trilling, "I've Heard the Mermaids Singing" provides a soaring anthem to the world's unsung. Flighty as a sea horse and likewise unfettered, this first feature by Canadian Patricia Rozema finds inspiration in J. Alfred Prufrock's sad quatrain. 1987
