Unmasked: Judeophobia*

Sunday, November 20th, 2011 7:00pm

The current political assault against the State of Israel fundamentally is a war against the Jewish people and their right to self-determination. Jews are facing threats much greater than military threats in the battlefield or terror threats in urban centers. They are facing the possible destruction of the idea that there should be a nation state of the Jewish people.

UNMASKED conveys in very powerful and compelling ways the danger that civilized societies are facing by the resurgence of lethal hatred towards Jews in general and the Jewish state in particular.

Director Vicki Abeles turns the personal political, igniting a national conversation in her new documentary about the pressures faced by American schoolchildren and their teachers in our achievement obsessed public and private education system and culture. Featuring the heartbreaking stories of young people across the country who have been pushed to the brink, educators who are burned out and worried students aren't developing the skills they need, and parents who are trying to do what's best for their kids, Race to Nowhere points to the silent epidemic in our schools: cheating has become commonplace, students have become disengaged, stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant, and young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.

The Short Filmmaker Showcase*

June 4th, 2011 from 10:45am-12:45pm

Please join us as we welcome a very special filmmaker guest, J.P. Chan, who will be screening his latest short film DIGITAL ANTIQUITIES as part of The Filmmaker's Showcase.

J.P. Chan is a self-taught filmmaker based in New York City. Since 2005, he has made several award-winning shorts that have screened at festivals worldwide including Slamdance, SXSW, and Tribeca. A strong believer in DIY filmmaking, Chan also teaches a workshop called DON'T QUIT YOUR DAY JOB based on his experiences creating ambitious low-budget shorts while holding down a full-time job. He holds a graduate degree in urban planning from NYU and was born in New Jersey to working-class immigrant parents.

DIGITAL ANTIQUITIES is Chan's most ambitious project to date. The film presents such high-tech topics as data preservation and e-waste though a deeply human story.

"In the future, virtually all of our lives will be recorded and presumably stored safely online somewhere. Recovering data from personal media like floppy disks, hard drives, optical discs, and memory chips will be an extinct business. But right now, we're creating lots of digital memories on these media but only haphazardly preserving them. How will we feel about this in a few decades when much of it is gone?

I wrote Digital Antiquities to explore questions swirling in my head about memories, preservation, and ultimately, mortality." - J.P. Chan, Writer/Director

DIGITAL ANTIQUITIES was funded by the Independent Television Service (ITVS) as part of FUTURESTATES, a series of digital shorts presenting groundbreaking and daring visions of American society in the not-so-distant future. After the screening, be sure to stick around for a Q&A with JP Chan, hosted by Emerging Artist Production's Digital Filmmaking Group.

Buy Tickets Ticket's are $3.00 at the door and is open to the public.

Additional films will be added to the schedule and will include films from the recent San Jose Short Film Festival as part of this presentation.

Tapestries of Hope

January 11th, 2011 at 8:00pm

After sold-out screenings in several key markets during its nationwide theatrical release in September 2010, women/children's rights feature documentary "Tapestries of Hope" is back, by popular demand, for a special encore screening, this time with award-winning 35mm short "The Profile" as an opener. "Tapestries of Hope" unearths the Zimbabwean myth that if a man rapes a virgin he will be cured of HIV/AIDS. The consequences of this myth are tragic; sexual abuse is rampant, girls as young as one day old have been raped, and victims are being infected with HIV/AIDS. In 2007, filmmaker and human rights activist Michealene Cristini Risley traveled to Zimbabwe to document this affliction, focusing on the work that CNN Hero and Zimbabwe native Betty Makoni has done to help the thousands of victims of rape and sexual abuse. As a result of her filming, Michealene was jailed, interrogated, and deported from Zimbabwe. This courageous film of tragedy and empowerment has won many awards on the festival circuit. "Tapestries of Hope" producer Ray Arthur Wang will begin the screening with his film noir short "The Profile", which the San Francisco Chronicle praised for its stylistic approach to the issue of racial profiling. Come support two important Bay Area-based causes and meet the Bay Area cast and crew, including producer and director, after Q&A.

Buy Tickets $9.75 online or at box office before January 11th. $14.75 at the door on the 11th.
