Cutty Flam @ The Continental Room

Last night I saw the band Cutty Flam at The Continental Room in Fullerton.  On their Bandcamp page, Cutty Flam describe themselves as having the following influences: 1950s / ballad / prom / punk / rock 'n roll.  They are groovy and fun, and are just one of the many illustrious bands on Fullerton's own Burger Records.  I took some pictures of them...

Important Women of Indian Cinema @ Hibbleton Gallery

This Wednesday evening at Hibbleton Gallery, we'll conclude our Introduction to the Cinema of India with an evening devoted to a few important women of Indian Cinema.  This event is FREE and begins around 7:30pm.

Series curator Steve Elkins will introduce and screen excerpts from Aparna Sen's 1989 film Sati (about a mute girl in an Indian village who marries a tree to avoid having to commit sati, the tradition of burning widows alive on their husband's funeral pyre).

"Sati" directed by Aparna Sen

Elkins will also give an introduction to and screen excerpts of films by Mira Nair (director of Salaam Bombay, Kama Sutra, and Monsoon Wedding).

We will conclude with a presentation on the work of writer Arundhati Roy, who is effectively the Noam Chomsky of India, including a screening of her legendary "Come September" speech and readings from her book The Algebra of Infinite Justice (2001).

Hope to see you there for this excellent evening of films, culture, and conversation.
