PFS is delighted to invite you to its July Film Festival, three superb movies specially selected to bring you the best of the music you love.
When is this happening?
The movies will be on three consecutive Wednesday evenings, starting on July 8. We'll open the online theater at 6:30 so people can chat and fiddle with their computers. The movies will start at 7 PM sharp. No one will be admitted after 7:15, so don't be late! (All times are Pacific time).
How does it work?
We'll show them on Zoom. If you are a Zoom veteran, then you'll have no trouble. If this is your first time, then plan to come early to make sure your computer is set up. During the movie, everyone will be muted, but the chat column will be open so you can comment on the movie or ask questions. When the movie finishes, we'll unmute everyone so you can discuss the film, and we'll also have a couple of anonymous polls for you.
Wow! What are the movies?
We have three great flics. We start with a Hollywood hit, O Brother, Where Art Thou?
on July 8. Then on July 15, we have a classic documentary, Hazel Dickens: It's Hard to tell the Singer from the Song
. We close with Latcho Drom, a documentary that shows the extraordinary sweep of Romani (Gypsy) music, from India to Spain. Jonathan Romney of The Guardian
wrote "there is something particularly exciting about a film that doesn't simply offer a burst of cultural difference, but actually creates a picture of the world as you've never seen it before. Such a film is Latcho Drom". Don't miss this one!
