SHAMELESS PLUG


This is Apo W. Bazidi.


(Unknown photographer)

I know him mainly as the brother of the owner of a restaurant/bar I frequent who sometimes serves me drinks.

What I didn't know is that he is also a filmmaker whose movie 'Resistance Is Life' was an offiicial selection of SF DocFest, among others.





Subtitled, “How Could We Live Without a Homeland” , it tells the story of Evlin, “an 8-year old girl who escaped with her family from their village in Kobane, Syria in September 2014” fleeing from ISIS.

It screens at the Roxie Theater this Sunday, June 11 at 9:30 p.m. And again on Monday, June 12 at 7:15 p.m.

VAN NESS MAKEOVER


All of Van Ness Avenue is currently torn up for the construction of a light-rail transit line that will run down the median strip.




While the traffic delays caused during all this construction are hard to deal with, it does allow for a more unobstructed view




of the Zio Ziegler mural adorning the southern wall of the Calista Hotel.
