|APR. 1: BRECKE/McABEE's I_BUTTERFLY + RAIL PUNKS
Adventurous and free-thinking refusals of the petroleum dead-end give rise to thriving sub-cultures, and tonight, two of these are celebrated in their respective halves of a program filled to bursting with radical ideas and experiences. Bernal Heights hero Mark Brecke takes the handlebars of the I_Butterfly project, Cory (Stingray Sam) McAbee's inspired campaign to save the Monarch Butterflies through the seeding of their migratory pathways with the milkweed plants that are essential to survival..and which can sprout right out of our lovingly composted corpses! Mark's 20-min. live-narrated slideshow details the fascinating episodes of McAbee's junket to launch the national consciousness-raising, a bike journey through 2000 miles and 15 states, from Maine to Florida, stopping at theaters---and “green” graveyards---along the way to spread the word! Cory's own 25-min. Cultured Cells Culture performance-video was often screened, and will be tonight. Our second half sports a spate of reports of travel by even Other means---hopping those freights! Showcased is David Murphy's Free Ride, supported by a pair of shorts from the InDecline Collective. ALSO: Ivy McClelland in-person with clips of herself in the European hit-doc, The Train I Ride, AND on our gallery walls, a sneak-preview of Bill Daniel's upcoming Mostly True rail zine, plus a choice clip of his Bozo Texino, of course! $12-120 benefit for I_Butterfly.
OtherZine Issue #33
“PINK VS. ORANGE”This issue #33 of OTHERZINE incorporates the DNA of another San Francisco Bay-born radical publication, Bad Subjects. This is its issue #92 too, settled in to occupy some of Other Cinema’s comfy seats here until its own website undergoes reconstruction. We hold hands as the movie unspools.
Viva Pink, standing up against Orange! In the January 2017 Women’s March, Pink Pussy hats asserted female leadership and activism. The 2016 Presidential campaign of pinko (OK, socialist Democrat) Bernie Sanders excited and involved many voters, especially millennials. President Donald Trump, his hair and skin alternating between various shades of orange/lemon yellow/yogurt pink, has galvanized American and global opposition to his policies, his insults, his general demeanor. And as “Orange is the New Black” reminded us, incarceration is always a risk for the disobedient and, perhaps, dissident.
