FILM SHORTS       9pm  MYSTIC MONTAGE w/ STVJNS
  When we interact with another species than ourselves, it is a reach across a chasm of culture and of worlds. What we may perceive and believe about the world we share is very likely not precisely the same as what another species would perceive and believe about the very same place, in fact you could say we live in different, closely parallel worlds.
We imagine the other is living in the world we perceive.

   Tonight through music, film and lyric we explore some connections to the others with whom we share.

7:30 FILM: "TWO-WHEELED ACTIVISM"– a film about bicycle activists in New York City (pre-premiere screening)
    In this one-woman production, we crash directly into the heart of the bicycle activist community of NYC. We follow the Public Space Party in their fight to get illegally parked cars out of the bike lanes of downtown Brooklyn. We join Transportation Alternatives and Families for Safe Streets in remembering the victims of traffic crashes. We take our bikes aboard the Staten Island ferry for a Peace Bike Ride. We get an exclusive insight into the strategies of Bill Di Paola, director of the environmental organization Time’s UP!, and we learn what it means to “ride like a hippo” from the fierce members of the women empowerment bicycle group WE Bike.
    
During the fall of 2015, visual anthropology student Emma Louise Pedersen, biked the streets of New York City’s five boroughs. Bringing along a camera as her primary research tool, Emma documented her meeting with the passionate bicycle activists, joining the community for both the fun and the frustrations of biking in NYC.
     Duration: 45 minutes
     The film screening will be followed by a Q&A session with the filmmaker.

7pm LITERARY: Two travelling novelists from Portland Oregon: SALLY K. LEHMAN and JESSICA ANN STANDIFIRD.
  Sally K. Lehman
is a micro-publisher whose novel "IN THE FAT" is an edgy YA novel that explores rough issues of family dysfunction and cutting.




Praise for "In the Fat"..."FINALLY a book for young adults that does not sentimentalize the life or body. This book tells it gut-straight and heart-sure: youth leads with the body and she won't do what you told her any more. It won't surprise me if readers carry this book around with them, in purses and hands and under pillows, frayed and torn, read so hard it's part of them."   - Lidia Yuknavitch, author of The Small Backs of Children

 Jessica Ann Standifird is a poet, writer, musician and performer from Portland, Oregon. She has been writing both poetry and fiction since she was a child, and is currently working on a memoir. She has two poetry chapbooks – Getting Dressed In The Dark and Getting Dressed In The Dark Two – and one chapbook of short fiction and memoir – Like Feathers. She is also a musician and plays the banjolele, ukelele, and sings backup vocals for the Portland based dark cabaret band Bright And Shiny. Jessica is a co-founder of the publishing company Blue Skirt Productions and the artists' collective Cats In A Dumpster. She currently organizes and runs local literary and arts events, as well as writing workshops for a local mental health organization.
