Orson Welles completists should drop all other plans and attend the two programs titled The Unknown Orson Welles scheduled this weekend at the Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley. Archivist Stefan Drossler, director of the Munich Filmmuseum, will introduce both matinees. On Saturday, January 17, at 5 p.m., My Name Is Orson Welles will include excerpts from his television appearances, including rare Shakespeare footage and Welles' travel documentaries.. On Sunday, January 18, at 2 p.m., Unfinished Works by Welles features fragments from The Dreamers, Don Quixote, and The Deep (based on the same novel, Dead Calm, by Charles Williams that was made into a movie 20 years later starring Nicole Kidman, Sam Neill, and Billy Zane. Welles' version starred Laurence Harvey, Jeanne Moreau, Welles' companion, Oja Kodar, and Welles himself.).

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
