Tracey 

When: Sat., July 13, 1 p.m. 2019
Price: $16
Hong Kong cinema takes a bold and progressive leap forward with Jun Li’s powerful portrait of a middle-aged man recognizing he is transgender. Husband and father Tai-hung is a modest business owner who secretly dresses in women’s clothes. When a childhood friend of his dies, the past comes rushing in, and forces him to confront feelings long buried and a gender identity long denied. Sensitive and nuanced, Tracey tackles all of the ramifications of its protagonist’s decision to live life honestly, showing the impact it has on wife Anne (the legendary Kara Wai, who won a Hong Kong Film Award for her performance) and their kids. Also rare and welcome are the film’s honest and shaded depictions of other LGBTQ characters in Tai-hung’s life.

  • 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.'"
