today's the first thursday of the month, so it's art hop time. i'm not sure if i'm going though. i'd like to get out a bit, but heather has also been under the weather so i'm doubting she wants to. we'll see. i kind of want to get out so i can hand out promo materials for my rogue show. i'm also not too sure if i'll hit up the post art hop show @ tokyo. good chance i'll be there though. and there's a good chance i'll post the flyer here later.
tomorrow night, fresno filmworks is putting on their monthly movie @ the tower theater. i'd go, but i'll be unavailble. anyway, if you're in fresno, you should check it out. the movie is called the price of sugar. here's a little plot synopsis i nicked from the internet:
"Just a few miles inland from the tourist-filled beaches of theDominican Republic, hidden from view, thousands of dispossessedHaitians have toiled under armed-guard harvesting sugarcane, much ofwhich ends up in U.S. kitchens. They work grueling hours and frequentlylack decent housing, clean water, electricity, education or healthcare."The Price of Sugar" follows Father Christopher Hartley, a charismaticSpanish priest, as he organizes some of this hemisphere's poorestpeople, challenging powerful interests profiting from their work. TheVicini family which owns some of the sugar plantations on which thefilm was shot has filed a lawsuit against the filmmakers in an attemptto block the film's release. This film raises key questions about wherethe products we consume originate and at what human cost they areproduced."
shows @ 5:30 and 8, $10. totally worth it.
