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.
We invite you to a pre-theatrical release screening of “Blackthorn” at the Landmark Embarcadero Center on October 11 in San Francisco. It stars Sam Shepard, Eduardo Noriega, and Magaly Solier (La Teta Asustada/Madeinusa). Directed by Mateo Gil – know for films like Vanilla Sky/Abre Los Ojos (both of them) & Sea Inside (Javier Bardem). For tickets email us at programming @ sflatinofilmfestival.com Please provide your name and phone number and the number of tickets 1 or 2. We’ll hand you the ticket at the screening. Look for us- holding up a “Cine+Mas SF” sign. The film opens on October 14th.
