There is a lot going on at the MOCA these days. The amazing Art in the Streets exhibit is up and transported me from a Blade Runner-esque scene to a Nordic wolf dream. But amongst the graffiti Levi’s has teamed up with Foodbuzz and is sponsoring a film workshop all about food. From now to July 14 the workshop will have various presentations highlighting 3-D filmmaking, editing, screen tests with cinematographers, sound design, lighting…. etc.
Futurefarmers designed a mobile farm right in front of the museum made of bikes and other mobile pieces. The farm is being tended to by Tara Kolla of SilverLake Farms. Aaron Rose is going to shoot/direct a short film and workshop participants will help create a final cut of the movie. The farm will stay on site til August 8th, then SilverLake farms will distribute the produce throughout the city.
In celebration of this new wave food movement. Levi’s is hosting three nights of film followed by a reception at Cinefamily. Wednesday 06/29 Cesar introduced by Suzanne Goin of A.O.C. and Lucques. Thursday 07/07 Martin Scorcese’s Italianamerican introduced by Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo of Animal Restaurant. Tuesday 07/12 The Grapes of Wrath introduced by Tara Kolla of Silver Lake Farms. I can’t wait to go! It’s going to be GOOD!
