In the next four days we will be screening three films here at SPACE. Tonight we will be showing the 1986 film Parting Glances, a pioneering film of gay cinema. This is the final film in our normative narratives series. Parting Glances will be followed with a discussion with series creator Chris Stiegler. Then on Saturday (after the Rogues Gallery Sample Sale) there will be a screening of the new film by Dave Camlin and Scott Sutherland about the Portland based band Olas. Following the film Olas will give a musical and dance performance that is inspired by traditional and modern flamenco but translated through a blend of American folk, rock, Arabic, and Afro-Cuban sounds. Get your tickets here.
On Sunday come digest your Sunday dinner while watching Step Up to the Plate. Sharing similarities with Jiro Dreams of Sushi, the film follows French chef Michel Bras while he runs his world renowned (3 Michelin star) restaurant in the beautiful Aubrac region in Southern France. Michel is nearing retirement, and is handing over the family business to his son Sebastien, but it’s not easy to take over for someone who is widely regarded as the leader in his field. Tickets here.
