Monday, October 19th!
Please come out for a special screening of my award-winning experimental feature documentary: THE JOY OF LIFE at the Jack Hanley Gallery (395 Valencia St. (@15th St.) on October 19th at 6:30pm. The screening is free (donations accepted) and also includes the short OUTSIDE THE DEMOCRACY OF CIRCUMSTANCE by Richard T. Walker. This special THE JOY OF LIFE screening kicks off a really cool extravaganza called Night Tide (October 19-23) which marks the 100th Anniversary of the Portola Festival — which took place October 19th-23rd of 1909 as a celebration of San Francisco's diversity and recent renewal and rebuilding after the 1906 earthquake. For more details on this 5-day oceanic celebration of the "ungraspable phantom of life" through film, art, music, readings, performance and dancing please see the flyer above. The whole thing is curated by Elephant and Giraffe and I am very proud to be a part of it.
Thursday, October 22nd!
kino21 is presenting a screening of my short 575 CASTRO ST. at SF Camerawork Gallery (657 Mission Street, Second Floor) on Thursday October 22nd, 7pm as part of their series called San Francisco: Place, Portrait and Performance (in conjunction with SF Camerawork's year-long 35 Anniversary celebration, we present the first of three screenings of films by local artists, who highlight our legacy as citizens of San Francisco). 575 CASTRO ST. screens this evening with Nathaniel Dorsky's 17 REASONS WHY and Roger Jacoby's HOW TO BE A HOMOSEXUAL, Parts I and II.
I'm happy to say that 575 CASTRO ST continues to have screenings in various cities thanks to the generous distribution assistance of the folks at New American Vision. Keep an eye out for these upcoming screenings across the globe:
A Million Different Loves!? International Queer Film Festival (November 2009)
Espacio Queer - La Plata, Argentina (November 2009)
Starz Denver Film Festival (November 2009)
Viennale (October 2009)
And remember (if you don't happen to live in Warsaw, La Plata, Denver, Vienna or San Francisco) you can always watch 575 CASTRO ST. online right HERE!
