The Z List

The A-List of Bay Area Counterculture

Z-List Weekend Guide [9/24 to 9/26]: Thunder Soul

This week we’ve picked some great events for Bay Area Z-Listers seeking cultural nourishment in our sunny Bay Area this weekend. We’re giving you a musical taste of ‘naked’ jazz, soulful house, Detroit hip hop and some Bilal soul. In film, don’t miss this week’s program presented by the Oakland Underground Film Festival, now in it’s second year. Oakland’s favorite film crew, specializing in underground dance movements — YAK films — is featured and will present dance performances and documentaries as part of OAKUFF at Linden’s Brewery in West Oakland. Also, be sure to catch Saturday’s screening of the award-winning, SXSW favorite, Thunder Soul.

Mountains That Take Wing:  Angela Davis and Yuri Kochiyama – A Conversation on Life, Struggles & Liberation
@ EastSide Cultural Center


Final Fridays Films of Resistance & Solidarity presents

Mountains That Take Wing:  Angela Davis and Yuri Kochiyama
A Conversation on Life, Struggles & Liberation

Mountains That Take Wing features conversations that span 13 years between two formidable women whose lives and political work remain at the epicenter of the most important civil rights struggles in the US. Through the intimacy and depth of conversations, we learn about Davis, an internationally renowned scholar-activist and 88-year-old Kochiyama, a revered grassroots community activist and 2005 Nobel Peace Prize nominee’s shared experiences as political prisoners and their profound passion for justice. On subjects ranging from the vital but largely erased role of women in social movements of the 20th century, community empowerment, to the prison industrial complex, war and the cultural arts, Davis’ and Kochiyama’s comments offer critical lessons for understanding our nation’s most important social movements and tremendous hope for its youth and the future. Filmmakers C.A. Griffith & H.L.T. Quan.
