Bay Lights, Art Installation by light sculptor Leo Villareal

If you’re in San Francisco, make your way to the Embarcadero waterfront and be prepared to linger. To celebrate the opening of the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge, built 75 years ago, a large scale art installation will brighten the skyline for the next two years starting tonight.

The Bay Lights by renown light sculptor Leo Villareal consists of 25,000 white LED bulbs attached to the north side cables of the Bay Bridge and linked to a laptop programmed to  “play” rhythmic patterns that never repeat.  Covering an area 1.5 miles wide and 500 feet high, this is an impressive public art display that will bring sparkle and panache to San Francisco’s other iconic bridge.

THE STORM THAT SWEPT MEXICO

Pancho Villa

The Mexican Revolution was the first major revolution to be filmed. The Storm that Swept Mexico incorporates photographs and motion pictures from these earliest days of cinema, many of which have never before been seen outside of Mexico.

Ten years in the making by Bay Area filmmakers Ray Telles and Kenn Rabin, The Storm that Swept Mexico is a powerful exploration of one of the most fascinating eras in modern history.

This exclusive new documentary The Storm that Swept Mexico, which tells the epic story of the Mexican revolution of 1910, the first major political and social revolution of the 20th century, will screen only one night in the Bay Area and will be followed by a conversation with the filmmakers.

This rare footage will be on the big screen Thursday, March 31, 7:00pM at 1118 Fourth Street, San Rafael. Call 415.454.1222 for more information. This is a California Film Institute screening.
