Sat. Oct. 4th- Gadabout Film Fest at SubRosa, 703 Pacific Ave.


Gadabout Film Fest with Eric Ayotte, The Limes, (Just) Nick Wuebben!

Saturday October 4th at 7pm
At SubRosa, 703 Pacific Ave.

Downtown Santa Cruz

Eric Ayotte and The Gadabout Film Festival will be touring together this fall for 3 months going to over 75 cities in the US before continuing to Europe for shows in 15 other countries. Presenting a special evening of music and film in each town for one night only.

The Gadabout Film Fest has had a long standing tradition of DIY ethics matched with really cool filmmaking. Since 2002, the Gadabout has been touring with a new batch of films each year, bringing film to non-film settings, screen an extremely inspiring and talented program of short films.

Growing out of a DIY music scene, the Gadabout seeks to prove that “Do It Yourself” doesn't have to mean any lack of quality. With equipment and technology more accessible, filmmaking is a more attainable medium, and yet we typically consume it through very tiny screens with poor audio. So, not only is there a curated element, but there is also respect given to these fantastic short films as they are presented on a big screen with good sound!

Eric Ayotte has been touring and releasing music for over a decade. His sincere songs bring a political message as well as an emotional truth. This tour will be supporting his 4th full length record “Transparency”, a full band album that explores the concept of honesty, and wanting more open communication from his community, government, friends, religions, and himself.  https://www.facebook.com/events/144738789029931/

Also The Limes and Just Nick will be playing.

Secret History Expedition Reportback Thursday September 11, 7pm at SubRosa Community Space, 703 Pacific Ave, Downtown Santa Cruz


As this reportback also includes a video aspect, both of the voyage and interviews with folks along the river, this d.i.y. endevour is in the realm of Guerilla Drive-In, and so we will be providing tech-support.  More info below, and I hope to see you there.



People's History Expedition on Upper Mississippi: A Reportback

A Secret History of American River People from the deck of a traditional shantyboat

Santa Cruz artist Wes Modes, with help from Kai, Jeremiah and others, built a traditional shantyboat to float down American rivers to gather the lost stories of river people. The crew just returned from the Mississippi where they spent part of the summer interviewing dozens of people who work and live on the river. The collection will serve as an archive for future scholars as well as be publicly-accessible online. When not on the river, the shantyboat itself serves as the project library and archive and will be temporarily sited at museums and galleries starting with the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History in November.

On Thursday September 11th, Wes, Kai and Jeremiah will offer a reportback on the journey, with photos and video.

Secret History Expedition Reportback
Thursday September 11th at 7pm
SubRosa Community Space
703 Pacific Ave, Downtown Santa Cruz

In late July, after an epic cross-country journey, California artists Wes Modes and Kai launched the shantyboat on the Mississippi River starting in Minneapolis. Joined by Jeremiah for a portion of the journey, they floated for five weeks over several hundred river miles, stopping in big and little town to interview river people. The journey is detailed in the project website at http://peoplesriverhistory.us/

*****************

Secret History is an art and history journey to discover, present, and connect the lost narratives of working-class river communities from the deck of a recreated shantyboat. A few generations ago, communities of shantyboats, or rustic houseboats, lined the banks of the river in every river town in America. Now they are mostly gone and soon the stories will be lost as well. The project is an attempt to capture and preserve some of these stories for current and future generations.

SORCERESS (Le moine et la sorcière) Friday, May 16th, 8pm at SubRosa! 703 Pacific Avenue


Join us for the fourth film of the Pagan Film Series!

Santa Cruz Guerilla Drive-In and Community Seed presents:

SORCERESS
(Le moine et la sorcière)


Friday, May 16th, 8pm
at SubRosa! 703 Pacific Avenue


 
A Dominican friar visits a 13th-century French village in search of heretics. Despite the opposition of the local priest and the indifference of the villagers, he finds a seemingly perfect suspect: a young woman who lives in a forest outside the village and cures people with herbs and folk remedies. French with English subtitles. Not Rated.

***The screenwriter, Pamela Berger, is a Professor of Medieval Art History at Boston College. She also wrote a ten-page behind-the-scenes explanation of the film titled Sorceress: The Story and Scripting of the Film. It's available as a .pdf here. You should check it out when you have the time!

This series is an opportunity to come together, to watch
engaging films, and also to engage each other, to share thoughts and experiences, and to create more of an overlap of the many social circles that exist in this town. 


About Community Seed: Our mission is to provide the local Santa Cruz Pagan community with opportunities to create closer bonds of perfect love and perfect trust, and understanding with one another, through community service, publications, gatherings, and ritual celebrations. We organize, host, and promote events that enrich and improve our lives, our world, and our community at large in the Santa Cruz region. (excerpt from their website http://www.communityseed.org/)

BEDKNOBS AND BROOMSTICKS
 
Friday, Apr. 25th
8pm Bike Church Courtyard!
703 Pacific Ave.

Angela Lansbury, along with three plucky working class kids and the dad from Mary Poppins, put the smackdown on the Nazis with a broom and some hocus pocus. This 1971 Disney animated musical was so subversive, the House on Unamerican Activities had to reconvene and investigate. Just kidding. Rated G.

***Bring things to make yourself cozy...blankets and pillows and whatever else you would need to make a nice nest for yourself.
