Le Pencil: Music in the Zoo, 48 Hour Film Project Screenings
Okay, so these picks aren't related to Bastille Day...but if you must celebrate the storming of the Bastille, then we suggest grabbing a baguette and some fromage, and heading over to one of these events tonight:
Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association's (GLAZA) opens up the zoo tonight from 6-9 pm for world music tunes and after-hours animal sightings (until 8 pm). The "Music in the Zoo" program features Suzanne Teng & Mystic Journey (world music), David Vito Gregoli & Primordial Sonics (aboriginal fusion), Masanga Marimba (Zimbabwean), Paddy's Pig (Irish), Stefani Valadez Ensemble (Middle Eastern & Sephardic), Espino (Latin) and Island Inspirations (Polynesian). There will be food and beverage offerings and 10 interactive animal education and conservation throughout the Zoo. Picnics are also permitted. Tickets are $16.50 for adults and $10.50 for children ages 6 to 15. Children 5 and under are free.
SEX AND COMMUNITY LECTURE
Stuart Comer, Curator of Film, Tate Modern, guest curates “The Young and Evil” program at LACMA tonight at 7 pm. The program examines the shifting relationships of sex and community in the digital age and features works by filmmakers such as Kenneth Anger, Anna Halprin, Curt McDowell and Barbara Rubin. After the screening, there will be an onstage conversation between Comer and artist William E. Jones. Tickets: $7 general admission, $5 members, seniors 62+ and students with ID.
48-HOUR FILM FEST
Filmmakers took part in the 48 Hour Film Project this past weekend, where teams created an entire film - from writing and casting to shooting and editing - in two days. Now it’s time to see the fruit of their labor. The films will be screened for the public at The Regency Fairfax Theatre today through Thursday from 7-9:30 pm. Winners from each group will then move on to compete with other cities’ 48 Hour Film Project winners at Filmapalooza.
