Luminous Cinema Performances

Last night I went to the San Francisco International Film Festival event, “Scribble Scrapple IC You“. It was a interesting and often beautiful live performance of cinematic light and music. Afterwards the audience came up, talked to the performers: Golan Levin, Sue Costabile and Laetitia Sonami. And tried out the instruments. Below are photos I took of those interactions.

Golan Levin talks about how Scrapple is performed.

Enticing Mystery


Obaba at the San Francisco International Film Festival was Spain’s entry to the 78th Oscars. It is a mystery of past histories and personal meanings of the students and school teacher who taught in the 1960’s at the rural town, Obaba.

The intricacies and unfolding of the story is thought provoking — providing multiple views of similar situations. The development of the story is an essential element in the enjoyment of the movie, so I think it’s best just to recommend seeing the film if it become available to you.
