Bees: Tiny Insect, Big Impact

Oakland Museum of California
1000 Oak Street

In Oakland

A new exhibition at the Oakland Museum of California examines the wildly diverse and intricate world of one of the most important creatures to human agriculture and the natural environment. Through family-friendly experiences, hands-on activities, and media, Bees: Tiny Insect, Big Impact is the first major museum exhibition to focus on the incredible diversity of bees in California and the urgent issue of bee population declines statewide. Bees tells the story of these amazing insects, while providing visitors the opportunity to learn about the value of bees to our economy and ecosystems, and discover how simple but powerful actions can help bees to survive in a changing world. Covering topics such Bay Area beekeeping, the diversity of California native bee species, and the similarities between bees and humans, the exhibition features cutting-edge science on bee behavior and conservation, opportunities for visitors to get involved in research, and ways to make their own yards and neighborhoods more attractive to bees.

A family friendly exhibition, Bees encourages visitors of all ages to discover real bee specimens under a microscope, play games such as "Is it a bee?" to learn how species are identified, and create original animations about their vision for a future with bees. Visitors can climb inside life sized honeybee cells, learning along the way about factors that contribute to bee disappearances. The gallery features real beekeeping tools, including a cross-section of a beehive, a honey spinner and implements for honey collection, and a chance to try on real beekeeper suits in adult and child sizes. The exhibition also offers opportunities to get involved outside of the Gallery, with citizen science projects, bee hotels installed in the OMCA Gardens, and guides on building bee hotels for visitors to take home.

Presented by Oakland Museum of California.

Macrocosms: Acrylics & Monotypes by Irene Nelson

The Gallery @ Panorama Framing Inc.
3350 Grand Avenue

In Oakland

Macrocosms: Acrylics & Monotypes by Irene Nelson

Nelson states her works are acts of discovery, asking the continual, ‘what if?’ On her recent body of works featured in Macrocosms: Acrylics & Monotypes by Irene Nelson, she says, “I’m fascinated by the way that one move or gesture limits the field, or suggests a new direction. The process is a dance between thinking and not thinking, balancing patience with spontaneity. It is an act of faith.”

Working as a local artist and printmaker at Kala Institute in Berkeley (and with over 30 years experience working as a graphic designer in the Bay Area), Nelson considers herself a visual problem-solver. Incorporating a variety of mixed media design, etching, intaglio printing, and chine-collé into her unique design sense; Nelson subconsciously plots each resulting combination of techniques. She creates macrocosms - assemblages where viewers navigate a universe of shapes and brushstrokes punctuated with gestural etching marks and mixed media collage gathered from years of experience.

“Along the way, there are moments of surrender that resulted in the warmth and depth of the tones, subtle whites and smoky blacks—a richly expressive visual poetry uniting observation, image and process.”

As a designer, Nelson immerses herself in the creative process—working to discover imagery that has always already been there, or waiting for it to emerge—the creative process itself becomes the answer to the 'what if?' question. Her visual acuity has informed her painting and printmaking, leading her to exhibit her artwork throughout the Bay Area including San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) Fort Mason Artist's Gallery.

City Lights (Charlie Chaplin, US, 1931)

Saturday, August 1st, 2015, 4:00pm

Pacific Film Archive Theater
2575 Bancroft Way

In Berkeley

Part of It’s a Wrap! celebrating our final weekend in the PFA Theater.

Tracing the Tramp’s efforts to help a blind flower seller, City Lights is Chaplin’s most balanced and potent blend of humor and poetic pathos, with a strong strand of class consciousness. Episodes of pointed comedy, beginning with the Tramp unveiled in the lap of a statue at a pompous civic gathering, lead fluidly to almost unbearably poignant moments, such as when the flower girl at last recognizes her impoverished benefactor. The film was two years and $2 million in the making. By the time it was released, Hollywood had made the transition to sound, but Chaplin determined that City Lights would be free of dialogue, with a score composed and carefully supervised by him. His perfectionism paid off in a box-office triumph, and a film that many critics consider the pinnacle of his art. It is a film for which Víctor Erice has felt "complicity" throughout his life; he describes its finale as "one of the simplest, most intense, and most revealing images of the whole history of cinema."

• Written by Chaplin. Photographed by Roland Totheroh, Gordon Pollock. With Chaplin, Virginia Cherrill, Florence Lee, Harry Myers. (87 mins, Silent with music track, B&W, 35mm, From Janus Films/Criterion Collection)

Part of It’s a Wrap! celebrating our final weekend in the PFA Theater.
Followed by a reception with refreshments and live music!!

(El espiritu de la colmena)
Spain, 1943, the end of the civil war: in a rural village made of little more than train tracks, mud, and sky live two sisters, the quiet, moon-eyed Ana (Ana Torrent) and the older, confident Isabel (Isabel Telleria). A traveling road show brings the magic of cinema, specifically Frankenstein, into their long days; while their elderly father tends to bees and poetry, and their beautiful mother dreams of a love lost long ago, the two children wonder over ghosts and outcasts, monsters that become all too real once an actual fugitive enters their lives. Grounded in the political realities of 1940s Spain, and in an autumnal natural reality of plowed fields, abandoned farmhouses, and empty streets, Spirit attunes itself to the phantom realms of its child protagonists, where signs and wonders are everywhere, and new worlds await just outside the family home. “The best Spanish film ever made . . . There has probably never been a more extraordinary view of a child on a movie screen” (Richard Eder, NY Times).

• Written by Erice, Angel Fernandez Santos. Photographed by Luis Cuadrado. With Ana Torrent, Isabel Telleria, Fernando Fernan Gomez, Teresa Gimpera. (95 mins, In Spanish with English subtitles, Color, 35mm, From Janus Films/Criterion Collection)

Bicycle Thief (Vittorio de Sica, Italy, 1948)

Pacific Film Archive Theater
2575 Bancroft Way

In Berkeley

Part of It’s a Wrap! celebrating our final weekend in the PFA Theater.
Come early for a reception with live music and refreshments!

(Ladri di biciclette, aka The Bicycle Thieves)
De Sica’s neorealist tale finds the despair of postwar Italy evident in the faces of its men. Though the film also explores how women cope with poverty, it devotes most of its energy to documenting Rome’s streets and the depressed, unemployed men who populate them, anxiously waiting for work. One such man is Antonio Ricci (Lamberto Maggiorani), who miraculously lands a job hanging movie posters around town. Things go awry after Antonio’s bicycle is stolen, forcing him and his young son Bruno to scour the city. For De Sica, the severity of Antonio’s ordeal is as much a crisis of masculinity as it is one of economics; Maggiorani’s melancholy eyes and hardened face express the hardship of a generation of men beaten by hunger and dim prospects. Youthful Bruno tries to keep them upbeat, but as father and son soon learn firsthand, a desperate man can sink to great depths. (Jonathan L. Knapp) Víctor Erice saw the film as an adolescent: "For the first time I saw realism in cinema, I saw faces like those I saw in the street, I saw situations that I could recognize. So that's probably the point where I could say I left innocence behind and moved to a more conscious period."

• Written by Cesare Zavattini, based on a novel by Luigi Bartolini. Photographed by Carlo Montouri. With Lamberto Maggiorani, Lianella Carnel, Enzo Staiola. (93 mins, In Italian with English subtitles, B&W, 35mm, From Corinth Films)

The Kid (Charles Chaplin, US, 1921) w/ Charlie Chaplin Impersonator!

In Berkeley

Part of It’s a Wrap! celebrating our final weekend in the PFA Theater.
Followed by a demonstration-workshop in the art of pantomime with Charlie Chaplin impersonator Damian Blake. Bring the whole family to learn how to walk like Chaplin!

With The Kid, Chaplin successfully established the fusion of slapstick and pathos that would serve him so well in years to come. He also found perhaps his ideal costar, six-year-old Jackie Coogan, capable of both brilliant comic mimicry and unaffected emotion. In a genuinely squalid slum, the Little Tramp stumbles upon an abandoned baby. After a few attempts to rid himself of this unexpected responsibility, he settles into his paternal role, instructing the child in the con game of survival—until the authorities arrive to break up their happy if dilapidated home. Chaplin’s own childhood experiences of poverty and abandonment come through in the film’s vividly imagined settings and its intensity of feeling.

In Person/ Víctor Erice
Part of It’s a Wrap! celebrating our final weekend in the PFA Theater.

In recent years Erice has turned to the art of the short film, crafting several works for omnibus features that are nonetheless? able to stand on their own. A family of Spanish farmers attempt to help a sick child in Lifeline, part of 2002’s Godard/Kaurismaki/Herzog/et al. omnibus on time and fate, Ten Minutes Older: The Trumpet. Ana Torrent (The Spirit of the Beehive) stars in Ana, tres minutos, from 3.11 Sense of Home, a tribute project to the 2011 Japanese earthquake that features contributions from Naomi Kawase and others. Light filters through the Broken Windows of an abandoned Portuguese factory while former workers reminisce in Erice’s section of Centro Historico, which spotlights the city of Guimarães and includes pieces by Pedro Costa, Aki Kaurismaki, and Manoel de Oliveira. Revisiting the first film Erice ever saw (the Sherlock Holmes potboiler The Scarlet Claw), La morte rouge meditates on fiction, reality, history, and cinema above all. It was one of the only shorts named in Time Out’s 101 Films of the 2000s.

(Tokyo monogatari)
Setsuko Hara anchors one of the greatest of all Japanese films with one of the greatest of all performances, as a warm-hearted, becalmed, yet utterly determined young woman. Tokyo Story is about the gap between generations in a Japanese family. It tells a simple, sad story of an elderly couple who travel to Tokyo to visit their two married children, only to find themselves politely ushered off to a hot springs resort. There, the mother dies, leaving only their widowed daughter-in-law (Hara) to care for the father. “Two generations, a simple story that allows all the characters to change places, a pervading delineation of high summer, and the deceptive simplicity of the film’s style—all these combine to create a picture so Japanese and at the same time so personal, and hence so universal in its appeal, that it becomes a masterpiece” (Donald Richie).

• Written by Ozu, Kogo Noda. Photographed by Yuharu Atsuta. With Chishu Ryu, Chieko Higashiyama, Setsuko Hara, So Yamamura. (140 mins, In Japanese with English subtitles, B&W, 35mm, From Janus Films/Criterion Collection)

Woodminster Amphitheater
Joaquin Miller Park, 3300 Joaquin Miller Road

In Oakland

Mel Brooks' classic cult comedy film is now a big Broadway musical, once again setting the standard for outrageous humor. A down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, thereby bilking their "little old lady" backers out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes wrong: the gloriously offensive Springtime For Hitler is a smash hit! The Producers skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners. Adult oriented humor.

Performed under the stars by a large cast and a live professional orchestra, in Oakland's beautiful Joaquin Miller Park. Come early and enjoy a picnic with your family, a walk in this hillside park, and the beautiful bay views. As the sun sets, take your seats in the amphitheater and enjoy an evening of music and magic under the stars.

Thursday, August 6 is the Preview (final dress rehearsal) and all tickets are $18 at the door. No assigned seats or reserved picnic tables, no advance sales, no promos or discounts. Regular performances are August 7, 8, 9, 13, 14, 15, and 16. Tickets are $28-$59, with discounts for children, seniors, and groups. Our Kids Come Free program allows an adult paying full price to bring a child or teen (up to 16) to any regular performance (not previews) for free.

(Though for The Producers, be aware that there is a great deal of sexual humor, most appropriate for adults and more sophisticated kids and teens.)

Sakura Ren Awa Odori

Obon is the date often contained a nostalgic sentiments to the past life. It is believed as a day that the spirits of ancestors are supposed to revisit the household altars in Japan. People often return to ancestral family places and visit and clean their ancestors¡¯ graves. The closest occasion in the US is Halloween that is the time dedicated to remembering the dead, including spirits and all the faithful departed believers. Also, in Mexico, they cerebrate Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), and the families make altars and place offerings of food by placing a photo of the departed soul on the alter. Similar to the US and Mexico, through bon odori (dance) and other festive events on the day of obon, lived and dead bodies are symbolically mark and negotiate the border of life and death.

Tonight, by employing Japanese percussive, string, and brass instruments as well as singing and dancing, the bay area¡¯s distinctive three groups will attempt to reproduce a modern Japan¡¯s fragmenting night of obon.

An Evening with Sasha Abramsky

Mrs. Dalloway's Bookstore
2904 College Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94705

In Berkeley

Join New York Review Books for an evening with Sasha Abramsky as he reads from 'The House of Twenty Thousand Books.'

'The House of Twenty Thousand Books' is journalist Sasha Abramsky’s elegy not only to his grandparents, Chimen and Miriam Abramsky, but to the vanished intellectual world of their North London home, where they cultivated a vast library of socialist literature and Jewish history while drawing the greatest thinkers of the era—including Isaiah Berlin and Eric Hobsbawm—to their salon. 'The House of Twenty Thousand Books' is at once the story of a fascinating family and a chronicle of the embattled twentieth century.
