The Roxie Theater & FORT MASON FLIX: Stray

The Roxie Theater & FORT MASON FLIX: Stray Start Date: Wednesday 3/10/2021 — End Date: Wednesday 3/10/2021 Admission:$49 SPECIAL DRIVE-IN SCREENING Roxie Theater and Fort Mason Flix present: Stray (2020) Dir: Elizabeth Lo, 2020 NR (documentary) 72 min. With Zeytin (canine protagonist and street dog), Nazar (street canine), and Kartal (street canine); Jamil, Halil, and Ali (young Syrian refugees living on Istanbul’s streets) The Roxie Theater and FORT MASON FLIX present Stray (2020). Through the eyes of three stray dogs wandering the streets of Istanbul, Stray (2020) explores what it means to live as a being without status or security. As they search for food and shelter, Zeytin, Nazar, and Kartal embark on inconspicuous journeys through Turkish society that allow us an unvarnished portrait of human life — and their own canine culture. The disparate lives of Zeytin, Nazar and Kartal intersect when they each form intimate bonds with a group of young Syrians who share the streets with them. Whether they lead us into bustling streets or decrepit ruins, the gazes of these strays act as windows into the overlooked corners of society: women in loveless marriages, protesters without arms, refugees without sanctuary. The film is a critical observation of human civilization through the unfamiliar gaze of dogs and a sensory voyage into new ways of seeing.

Waging Change Premiere on KQED

Waging Change Premiere on KQED Start Date: Friday 2/19/2021 — End Date: Friday 2/19/2021 Admission:FREE WAGING CHANGE, a timely new documentary about the tipped minimum wage and the pandemic’s impact on restaurant workers and the industry, directed by Peabody award-winner, Abby Ginzberg, will have its SF/Bay Area broadcast premiere on KQED on Friday, Feb. 19, 2021 at 8:00 PM. WAGING CHANGE shines a unique spotlight on the challenges faced by restaurant workers trying to feed themselves and their families off tips by weaving together stories of individuals, such as Nataki Rhodes of Chicago, Andrea Velasquez of Detroit and Wardell Harvey of New Orleans with the growing movement to end the tipped minimum wage. Featuring Saru Jayaraman, Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, the film reveals an American workers’ struggle hidden in plain sight– the effort to end the federal tipped minimum wage of $2.13 for restaurant servers and bartenders and the #MeToo movement's efforts to end sexual harassment.

The 23rd SF IndieFest Opening Night Film: The Bo

The 23rd SF IndieFest Opening Night Film: The Book of Vision (VIRTUAL EVENT) Start Date: Thursday 2/4/2021 — End Date: Thursday 2/4/2021 Admission:$10 *VIRTUAL EVENT* THE BOOK OF VISION Director: Carlos S. Hintermann In present day, Eva (Lotte Verbeek), a promising young doctor, leaves her brilliant career to study the history of medicine in a remote university. She begins to call everything into question after discovering a manuscript titled “The Book of Vision”: her nature, her body, her illness, and her sealed fate. Johan Anmuth (Game of Thrones star Charles Dance) is an 18th-century Prussian physician in perpetual conflict between the rise of rationalism and ancient forms of animism. Far from a proper scientific text, Anmuth authored the manuscript to focus on the feelings, fears, and dreams of over 1800 of his patients, whose spirits still wander through the pages. The story of Anmuth and his patients cause Eva to question the separation of the past, present and future, while confronting the challenges of modern medicine and its limitations with respect to her own body. SF IndieFest will once again bring the freshest new independent films and digital programs from around the world to San Francisco audiences. This year’s festival has 42 shorts and 38 features from 20 countries. Complete program information at www.sfindie.com.
