Wednesday:Michael Bettine's Gong Bath

Thursday: Movie Night

Movie night will begin with a new short subject: The River of Copsa Mica, Directed by Ryan Uzilevsky with puppetry and costumes by Waking Dream (our Kids Parade and Bonfire puppeteers), based on a true story in which a misunderstood tribe of Pagan Gypsies in 1916 Transylvania are blamed by villagers when a small boy turns up missing. Based on true events.

Director's Statement:

The film "The River of Copsa Mica" contains the timeless Myth of a Man's struggle against his society as it begins falling into the false ideals and sinister trappings of industrial warfare and violent nationalism. It also contains the Myth of freedom from domination and materialism represented by a persecuted tribe of nomadic Gypsies. It tells a true story I believe to be as timeless and important as any of Man's great myths, and this all happened less than 100 years ago.

Yellow Submarine is a classic animated fairy tale in the form of a full-length musical film starring The Beatles. Though the dialog was supplied by actors (until the last scene), the music is all theirs, and the incredible animation resulted from eleven months’ work by over 200 artists, a psychedelic tour-de-force utilizing techniques unique at the time. The story, inspired by the theme song, involves a mission by Captain Fred in his flying dimension-spanning Yellow Submarine to enlist the help of The Beatles to free Pepperland (and their resident heroes Sgt.Pepper’s Lonley Hearts Club Band) from capture by the music-hating Blue Meanies. This requires an Odyssey-like journey through mysterious seas, discovering both monsters and an ally, and a hilarious script of double-entendres, Beatles’ song references and psychedelic inside jokes worthy of Firesign Theatre and Monty Python. A splendid time is guaranteed for all.

After that, depending on the will of the audience and the weather, other strange and wonderful films will be ready to run.
