Movie in a Park | Bring Your Own Brigade (2021): Documentary by Two-Time Oscar-Nominated Filmmaker


In early November 2018, raging wildfires forced the frenzied evacuation of thousands of terrified residents from the cities of Malibu and Paradise, two very different California communities. In this documentary, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Lucy Walker captures the heroism and horror of that unfathomable disaster. Her character-driven exposé, Bring Your Own Brigade, also answers a question humanity can no longer afford to ignore: Why are catastrophic wildfires increasing in number and severity around the world, and can anything be done to lessen the staggering death and destruction they cause? Drawing on hundreds of hours of astonishing wildfire footage and featuring interviews with survivors, firefighters and scientists, the film reveals that short of solving global warming there are numerous, often simple steps that can be taken to not only mitigate the catastrophic devastation caused by wildfires, but restore health and balance to woodlands that have been mismanaged for far too long. But does society have what it takes to put aside short-term interests and outmoded thinking to confront a crisis that’s quite literally burning our world to the ground? 7:45 PM: Doors Open 9:00 PM: Films Begin 11:00 PM: Q&A In the event of rain, show will be rescheduled. No alcohol is permitted.

Movie in a Park | Marcel Camus' Black Orpheus (1959): Greek Myth Set During Rio's Carnival


A retelling of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth, set during the time of the Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro. This is Marcel Camus' best known film, which won the Palme d'Or at the 1959 Cannes Film Festival and the 1960 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Orpheus was a musician, poet and prophet in Greek mythology. His parents were the king of Thrace Oeagrus and the muse Calliope. He was considered the best musician and poet of all, and he perfected the lyre. It was the god Apollo who taught Orpheus how to play the lyre when he was an adolescent. Orpheus joined the expedition of the Argonauts, saving them from the music of the Sirens by playing his own, more powerful music. On his return, he married Eurydice, who was soon killed by a snakebite. Overcome with grief, Orpheus ventured himself to the land of the dead to attempt to bring Eurydice back to life.

Movie in a Park | Homeroom (2021): Documentary by Emmy-Winning Director 


Homeroom follows a group of Oakland High School seniors in the tumultuous 2020 school year. The documentary is the final chapter in a trilogy of films by Emmy winner Peter Nicks—including The Waiting Room (2012) and The Force (2017)—examining the relationship between health care, criminal justice, and education in Oakland, CA over the past decade. Oakland is a rich microcosm of American Life and Homeroom highlights how Oakland High is no exception. Displaced by gentrification in the Bay Area, constricted by fear of deportation, and intimidated by police, they have a firsthand education in systemic injustice. At centerstage is Denilson Garibo, one of two Student Directors on the Board of Education representing the students in Oakland. His role places him between two worlds, bringing the concerns of his peers to the ears of adults who are often pursuing different priorities. In a year derailed by the pandemic and rocked by the national trauma of the police killings of George Floyd and so many others, Homeroom celebrates the tenacity of today’s youth and their determination to make change. 7:45 PM: Doors Open 9:00 PM: Film Begins 10:30 PM: Q&A with director Peter Nicks In the event of rain, the show will be rescheduled.
