For this installment of Downtown at Sundown, join us for an evening of live music, dance and film in our gallery. View the current exhibition, We Are Here/Estamos Aquí and experience a flamenco dance performance by DanzArts/La Esencia Flamenca, followed by a screening of the film Exiled from San Francisco Bay-Area filmmaker, Mike Seely.
Schedule for the evening:
From 5:30 – 6:45 p.m., DanzArts/La Esencia Flamenca will take you on a journey through southern Spain. Enjoy two performances featuring live guitar and flamenco dancing. Danzarts is under the artistic direction of Patricia Astorga-Casey.
From 7:00 – 8:00 p.m., filmmaker Mike Seely will present his documentary, Exiled. The film focuses on two military veterans, both green card immigrants, willing to die for their country, who found themselves deported and are now fighting to be heard. Exiled is a persuasive and intimate look at the human consequences of current U.S. immigration policy.
Downtown at Sundown is in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCASD) on the third Thursday of every month from 5 to 8 p.m. Neighborhood restaurants including Aaharn Thai, Carnivore, Waters, and The Stone Brewing Company Store will stay open late.
