Duwamish Revealed: Free Movie Night @ The Estuary/T-108 Park
Jul 24 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Duwamish Revealed, a summer long series of outdoor art installations, performances, community activities presents two nights of documentary movies about the Duwamish Tribe on Jesse Card’s portable outdoor cinema. John Boylan, host of the discussion series “Conversations,” will begin the evening with a monologue based on contemporary and historical stories from along the riverbanks.

John Boylan | Duwamish Movie Night
at The Estuary/T-108 Park, 4651 Diagonal Avenue S., Seattle

Friday July 24, 8 pm: Princess Angeline, dir. Sandra Osawa, 2008, 53 minutes

Saturday July 25, 8 pm: Chief Seattle, dir. BJ Bullert, 2000, 80 minutes

Both nights will feature special appearances by the filmmakers.

On July 24th Princess Angeline will be shown. Princess Angeline, daughter of Chief Seattle, lived alone at the bottom of Pike Street and refused to leave her homeland despite the city’s ban on Native people living within the city limits. The film explores the story of the Duwamish and their still-unrecognized tribal status through the life of Princess Angeline.

On July 25th Chief Seattle will be shown. Chief Seattle brings to life the legendary Puget Sound leader who welcomed the Americans to settle on the land that now bears his name. It recounts the known facts of Seattle’s life and times, and casts a fresh light on the controversy over the famous speech attributed to him. Originally broadcast on KCTS Television, the film features interviews with Duwamish Tribe leader Cecile Hansen, historians Alexandra Harmon and David Buerge, and author Jonathan Raban.

Since his childhood, Benjamin Franklin Gates has known that he is a decendant of a long line of people whose job it has been to guard a treasure hidden by the Founding Fathers. They hid clues to its whereabouts in the country’s currency and on the back of the Declaration of Independence. Now, Ben has learned of a plot to steal the Declaration, and has only one option: he had to steal it himself. Even if he pulls off this monumental task, keeping the treasure safe is still going to be incredibly hard, especially since the FBI now knows of his plans.

The Senior Center of West Seattle is hosting a free screening of the movie “The Age of Love,” a documentary that follows the adventures of 30 seniors who sign up for a first-of-its-kind Speed Dating event exclusively for 70 to 90 year olds.

From anxious anticipation through dates that follow, it’s a comic and poignant tale of intrepid seniors who lay their hearts on the line and discover how dreams and desires change—or don’t change—from first love to the far reaches of life.

People of all ages are invited to join us on Thursday, February 9 at 2pm for this free screening. Call 206 932 4044 x1 to register. This screening is sponsored by Senior Care Coalition.

You can visit the film’s website here: http://theageoflovemovie.com/

Some praise for the film…

“THE AGE OF LOVE shows us that love is ageless. It’s a great film for older audiences as well as for college students studying relationships and for professionals working with older populations. Too often films ignore the full humanity of older men and women and forget that they can be husbands, wives and lovers. The Age of Love is a wonderful corrective to all those films that deny seniors the full range of who they are and who they can be.” Dr. Pepper Schwartz, AARP LOVE AND RELATIONSHIP AMBASSADOR

“Steven Loring does a fantastic job in taking you deep into a world that – for many of us – may never have even crossed our minds… No matter what your age, THE AGE OF LOVE is one film your will want to experience, as it shares a real story full of emotion and that will assure you, with each passing year, the longing for love and the touch of someone near never goes away.” Kathy Kaiser, WE ARE MOVIE GEEKS

“The film works so well because of the sense that Loring is determined to treat his subjects with the dignity they deserve. Contrary to what society constantly seems to tell us, growing older doesn’t mean that we cease to have the same desires as anyone else, and it’s heartening to see THE AGE OF LOVE take those desires seriously.” Adam Lubitow, THE ROCHESTER CITY NEWSPAPER

‘The Ship Sails Again’: Admiral Theater celebration
Mar 22 @ 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Just two years shy of 100 years old, the Historic Admiral Theater will celebrate its recent $1.7 million renovation with a unique evening saluting four key periods in the history of the art-deco, nautical-themed moviehouse.

The event on the evening of Wednesday, March 22, is called “The Ship Sails Again: Four Screens, Four Eras.” Launching the event will be an indoor ribbon-cutting (using film instead of ribbon!). Also, the long-dormant outdoor ticket booth will come alive with public office-holders and volunteers distributing keepsake postcards commemorating the evening.

On the bill for this special evening will be four programs, each representing a turning point in the theater’s history and featuring films that have played the Admiral or its predecessor, the Portola Theater (which was in the building that is the current theater’s lobby):

n ERA ONE, the Portola Theater’s opening in 1919: A slate of classic silent films: Charlie Chaplin’s war parody “Shoulder Arms” (1918), plus three shorts, Harold Lloyd’s “The Marathon” (1919) and Buster Keaton’s “One Week” (1920) and “Cops” (1922). “Shoulder Arms” played the Portola Theater in August 1927. Showtimes: 6:50 and 8:40 p.m.

n ERA TWO, the Admiral Theater’s opening on Jan. 22, 1942: The Humphrey Bogart detective story “The Maltese Falcon” (1941), which played the Admiral Theater six weeks after it opened in 1942. Showtimes: 6:30 and 8:50 p.m.

n ERA THREE, the Admiral’s twinning in spring 1973: The nostalgic comedy “American Graffiti” (1973), which played the Admiral Theater in August 1974. Showtimes: 6:40 and 9 p.m.

n ERA FOUR, the renovation of the Admiral to four screens in fall 2016: The new Disney fantasy “Beauty and the Beast” (2017), which is slated to open at the Admiral on the previous Friday, March 17. Showtimes: 6:20 and 9:10 p.m.

Tickets for each program will be regular prices: $11.50 for adults, $9.50 for children (under 13) and seniors (60+) and $10.50 military. Those purchasing a pair of tickets for an early-evening show and late-evening show will receive a complimentary bag of the Admiral’s famous popcorn.

Advance ticket purchases are encouraged because of the expected crowds that evening. Advance tickets can be purchased at the theater, 2343 California Ave. S.W., or online at farawayentertainment.com/location/admiral-theater/ (click “Buy Tickets Online” in upper right corner).

The ribbon/film-cutting ceremony will take place at about 5:30 p.m. on the stairs inside the theater lobby. Participating in the ceremony will be a pair of public officials and West Seattle residents:

n Seattle City Council member Lisa Herbold, of District 1 (West Seattle and South Park), marking the city’s role in the 1989 landmarking of the Historic Admiral Theater, resulting from a grassroots campaign led by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

n King County Council Chair Joe McDermott, of District 8 (West Seattle, Vashon Island and parts of downtown), who championed the 4Culture “Building for Culture” grant of $95,000 that assisted in the renovation of the Historic Admiral Theater in 2016.

Also participating in the ceremony will be representatives of Far Away Entertainment, which operates the Historic Admiral Theater, and the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

Other participants will include West Seattle residents Maryanne Tagney and David Jones, winners of a Historic Admiral Theater package at the historical society’s 2016 Champagne Gala Brunch.

The outdoor ticket booth will be open for the distribution of keepsake postcards at 5 p.m. Working the booth in shifts will be Herbold, McDermott and volunteers from the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

Before each screening that evening, the Southwest Seattle Historical Society will speak briefly about plans to restore the 1942 underwater murals that are now exposed on the interior walls of the outside walls of the theater. In the lobby, the historical society also will have an informational booth about the mural restoration.

Conversation & Film on Gender Discrimination @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Jul 11 @ 6:00 pm

Conversation & Film on Gender Discrimination presented by Southwest Youth and Family Services in partnership with Kent Youth and Family Services. July 11, 2017 @ 6 pm at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, 4408 Delridge Way SW.

Join SWYFS for a conversation and film on gender discrimination, July 11, 2017 @ 6 pm.

We have all seen discrimination in many forms in our lives and our communities, and discrimination based on gender occurs daily in countless situations and circumstances. While there have been significant steps forward on gender equity, there is still a desperate need for more work to be done. We would like to invite you to be a part of our discussion about gender discrimination as it exists in our community, watch a film highlighting an example from our own history and work together to create a better path through it for ourselves, our neighbors and our future generation. On Tuesday, July 11 (6pm at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center in West Seattle), students and staff from SWYFS will facilitate a discussion surrounding the film “Anita” and give you the opportunity to learn a bit more about programming at SWYFS, as well as an opportunity to support and get involved with our efforts.

This event is the first of two community conversations, in partnership with Kent Youth and Family Services. The second event will be held in Kent on August 9 and will discuss human trafficking. The registration link below will allow you to register for one or both events (free admission). A light dinner and drinks will be served. We ask you to come with an open mind and your thoughts on addressing these issues in our communities.

Thank you for your commitment to equity for all in our community. We look forward to this discussion with you.
Register for the Next Up Series on July 11 here.

‘Timothy Brock Returns to West Seattle with Music of the Silent Giants’ benefit for Admiral Theater mural restoration
Jul 25 @ 6:45 pm – 10:00 pm

Restoration of the art-deco underwater murals of West Seattle’s Historic Admiral Theater will get another boost this summer with a one-night presentation by a West Seattle native whose orchestral scores for classic movies of the pre-sound era have earned him the title of the “Silent Film Music Guru.”

The event is called “Timothy Brock Returns to West Seattle with Music of the Silent Giants.”

It will take place at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday, July 25, 2017, at the Historic Admiral Theater, 2343 California Ave. SW, sponsored by our historical society.

This exciting evening – to last more than three hours, with an intermission – will start with Timothy Brock being interviewed by his childhood friend, West Seattle’s Dave Beck, a host at KING-FM and longtime former KUOW-FM host.

Brock will reminisce with Beck about their West Seattle upbringing and discuss the fascinating process of scoring silent classics. (Brock earned the label of “Silent-Film Music Guru” from Vogue magazine in May 2016.)

Interspersed will be stills and clips from silent films that Brock has scored. Following an intermission, Brock will introduce the screening of the Charlie Chaplin feature “Modern Times,” for which Brock has restored and re-recorded the original 1936 Chaplin score.

Tickets are $20, and proceeds will go to the Historic Admiral Theater mural restoration led by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society. A VIP opportunity, to attend the presentation and visit one-on-one with Brock and Beck beforehand, will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the theater. VIP tickets are $100.

Advance ticket purchases are encouraged, as the event may sell out.
TO PURCHASE ADVANCE TICKETS, CLICK HERE.

Timothy Brock, who has long lived in Bologna, Italy, is internationally renowned for his orchestral scores for the movies of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton and many other silent film classics. Over 30 years, he has composed 27 original scores for silent films, and he has served as the film restorer for the Chaplin estate since 1998. Brock also conducts symphonies in live performances of his scores to accompany presentations of silent films all over the world.

This month Brock is making a rare return to his boyhood community, where, as a 10-year-old in the early 1970s, he watched organ-accompanied silent films at West Seattle’s beloved Granada Theater south of The Junction and drew the initial inspiration for his career, which he labels a “lifelong dream.” (The Granada was razed in 1977.)

Brock’s mother is Berlena Brock, former board member of our historical society.
TO PURCHASE ADVANCE TICKETS, CLICK HERE.

This unique presentation on July 25 will be the second event this summer to benefit the historical society’s fund to restore the auditorium murals of the Historic Admiral Theater. The first event, a screening of the local documentary “Legends of the Road,” drew 200 people to the theater and raised more than $5,000 for the fund.

The murals date to 1942, when the Portola Theater was converted and expanded to the Admiral Theater. They were covered by curtains when the theater was twinned in 1973 and uncovered as part of the theater’s recent renovation to four screens.

The Historic Admiral Theater became an official Seattle landmark in 1989, following a campaign led by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

‘Rooted in Peace’ @ Admiral Theater
Oct 2 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

On Monday, October 2, the Admiral Theater celebrates the International Day of Peace by screening ROOTED in PEACE – a globally transformative, socially-conscious, environmentally-based film. Award-winning filmmaker and environmental activist Greg Reitman shares his journey of self-analysis with audiences seeking inner peace in a world full of people dominated by war, affected by global warming or haunted by inner conflict.

The film follows him as he speaks to thought leaders around the world having conversations around sustainable development, discussing the challenges of our never-ending wars, and facing the realities of uncertainty placed on the world’s institutions by our current political climate. Reitman’s introspective and socially relevant documentary was most recently screened at the United Nations.

From the US to Costa Rica to India, Reitman traveled to visit such luminaries and activists as Deepak Chopra, music legends Donovan, Mike Love and Pete Seeger, film director David Lynch, Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire, Ted Turner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and many others.

Their common ideas and examples make ROOTED in PEACE one of the most unexpectedly inspirational viewing experiences magnified by a stellar soundtrack opening with Pink Floyd’s ‘Time’ and closing with John Lennon’s ‘Love.’

Starring Pete Seeger, Deepak Chopra, Desmond Tutu

West Seattle Meaningful Movies: ‘Dr. Strangelove’ @ Neighborhood House High Point
Jan 6 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

This year at the West Seattle Meaningful Movies, a number of neighborhood organizations are showing a movie of their choice. Here’s a chance to get to know West Seattle Neighbors for Peace and Justice!

On Saturday, January 6,
West Seattle Neighbors for Peace and Justice present

“Dr. Strangelove,” directed by Stanley Kubrick (1964) and starring Peter Sellers and George C. Scott, is a comedy ridiculing the nuclear-war plans of the United States and the Soviet Union. An insane general launches a first strike against the Soviet Union, and a President and his advisors and generals try to call the launch back. In many ways this film is too close to being an actual documentary. It eerily resembles our nuclear predicament today. Despite widespread concern about Trump’s mental stability, he remains in control of the world’s most powerful nuclear arsenal.

93 minutes

Good news! The United Nations has passed a Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. It is the first legally binding international agreement to completely eliminate nuclear weapons. (The United States has not yet signed on.) And on December 10, the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) won the Nobel Peace Prize–in part for its work to help pass this treaty. West Seattle Neighbors for Peace and Justice are a part of the ICAN coalition.

After the movie Lilly Adams of Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility (also part of the ICAN coalition), will share ideas for how we can move toward a nuclear-weapons-free world.

6:30 – doors open for refreshments and social time

West Seattle Meaningful Movies: ‘Harvest of Empire’ @ Neighborhood House High Point
Feb 3 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Join Hate-Free Delridge and the West Seattle Meaningful Movies for a timely showing of an important film. The movie has Spanish subtitles, and the rest of the evening will be interpreted into Spanish.

Saturday, February 3, Hate-Free Delridge and West Seattle Meaningful Movies present

Harvest of Empire
The Untold Story of Latinos in America

Based on the groundbreaking book by award-winning journalist and Democracy Now co-host, Juan González, this film reveals the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America, and immigration today.

Featuring real-life stories and rare archival footage, the movie examines the events and conditions that have led millions of Latino families to leave their homelands in an unprecedented wave of migration. From wars for territorial expansion to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes, it unveils a story largely unknown to most U.S. citizens.

Some graphic violence. Not recommended for children.

90 minutes; Spanish subtitles

Directed by Peter Getzels and Eduardo López, 2012

Trailer: http://harvestofempiremovie.com (in both English and Spanish)

After the film, members of Hate-Free Delridge will share ideas and facilitate a discussion about how we can support local immigrants. The discussion will be interpreted into Spanish.

6:30 – doors open for refreshments and social time

‘Roadhouse’ with David Schmader @ South Park Hall
Mar 10 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

On March 10th at South Park Hall, David Schmader is lending his comedic genius to ROAD HOUSE a 1989’s uproariously macho zen-judo bouncer drama starring Patrick Swayze as a legendary badass who “lives like a loner, fights like a professional, and loves like there’s no tomorrow,” as the film’s original tagline put it. A howling tornado of punching fists, bouncing boobs, and brutally stupid dialogue, ROAD HOUSE is a perfect match for David Schmader, the Seattle-based writer and performer who’s toured the country with his critically acclaimed “annotated screening” of Paul Verhoeven’s ridiculous stripper drama Showgirls, and provided the commentary track for the best-selling Showgirls DVD. On Saturday March 10, Schmader will host a screening of the mighty ROAD HOUSE—or as Schmader calls it, “SHOWGIRLS for boys”— Join us for a night of drunken screaming at a craptastic American classic.

Sustainable West Seattle, and the West Seattle Meaningful Movies, presents

Death by Design
The Dirty Secret of Our Digital Addiction

Many of us use our digital devices to promote the greater good. But there is a downside to the digital revolution. This movie brings to light the environmental, economic, and social-justice failures of our favorite products.

By 2020, four billion people will own personal computers, five billion will own mobile phones, and all industries will be computerized. Are we being duped by an industry that has a death-by-design plan? Are we reaching the point where we have to decide between consumerism and sustainability?

Exploring Our Collective Memory: An Invitation to Reflect on U.S. History @ Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish
Feb 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Our Lady of Guadalupe Immigrant Ministry is excited to host Professor Catherine Punsalan-Manlimos, PhD from the Institute for Catholic Thought and Culture at Seattle University on Thursday, February 28th at 7:00 p.m. in the School Hall.

Together, we will explore our collective memory with regards to our immigration history. Most of us in the U.S. today are either immigrants or the descendants of immigrants. With the exception of our Native American brothers and sisters and the descendants of enslaved free peoples from Africa, many of us or our forebears immigrated to this country seeking a better future and freedom from persecution, violence, or poverty. Reflecting on the history of U.S. immigration in light of Catholic Social Traditions can remind us why fighting for policies that honor the dignity of our migrant brothers and sisters is a matter of faith and a matter of justice.

First Saturday hikes in West Duwamish Greenbelt @ (see listing)
Apr 6 @ 10:00 am

Hiking season is beginning in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. Hike with the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group (www.wdgtrails.com) on guided walks to find birds, bugs, mushrooms, native plants, geology, and history. Meet the first Saturday of each month at 10 am, usually at the trailhead at 14th Ave. SW and SW Holly Street, but starting places may vary; watch postings for individual hikes. We hike mostly on constructed and maintained gravel trails, suitable for family outings.

The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle, spreading over 550 acres in West Seattle from the tip of Pigeon Point to Westcrest Park. Urban forests are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty, contribute to our health, and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Here’s the schedule for the 2019 season. All hikes start at 10:00 am.

April 6: Bird watching hike with Scott Markowitz, an international birder, member of the board of directors at Tahoma Audubon. Meet at the Puget Park trailhead at 4418 21st Ave. S.W.

May 4: Insect hike with a bug club member.

June 1: “Walking Native Land” on National Trails Day with Ken Workman, a descendant of Chief Seattle and a member of the Duwamish Tribe. Ken will talk about his personal experience growing up in the greenbelt and his tribe’s use of the land and nearby Duwamish River.

The hike begins at 10 a.m. near the Chinese Garden at South Seattle College. We’ll walk down Puget Ridge to the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center and return. This hike is on unimproved trail with aspirations to be a connector between ridge and river, about two miles round-trip with 200 feet of elevation gain coming back. Wear good shoes or boots and be prepared for small obstacles like logs, brush, and walking near the edge of West Marginal Way.

July 6: Native plant identification with Steve Richmond of GardenCycles

August 3: Geology and land use history with Paul West and Craig Rankin

September 7: History of the greenbelt with Matt Groshong, Randy Nelson, and Craig Rankin

October 5: Mushrooms with Kim Traverse of the Puget Sound Myco Society

Sunday, April 14 @ 11:30 am

This 113 minute movie by local filmmaker Tomasz Biernacki is a thought-provoking documentary about the homeless crisis in Seattle. There is deft interweaving of in-depth stories of community members who are living the crisis on the streets with interviews of political leaders and community advocates, vivid images of the current state of affairs and a poignant examination of the roots of homelessness in the region. Biernacki paints a picture of a city struggling to come to grips with an unprecedented emergency.

You’ll find this production offers an alternative viewpoint to recent broadcasts and through the crisis it finds a few glimmers of hope. It features Camp Second Chance in West Seattle, a community that is successfully stabilizing the lives of its residents so they can work on moving forward.

Tibbetts is located at 3940 41st Ave SW. Light snacks will be available during the movie; we welcome all and encourage you to invite your family and friends!

The filmmaker has made Trickle Down Town available for free to any Puget Sound organization or group that wants to host a private or public screening. If you’re unable to attend the showing at Tibbetts or would like to see the trailer and more information, go to the Filmmaker’s website http://www.pechara.com/

First Saturday hikes in West Duwamish Greenbelt @ (see listing)
Aug 3 @ 10:00 am

Hiking season is beginning in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. Hike with the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group (www.wdgtrails.com) on guided walks to find birds, bugs, mushrooms, native plants, geology, and history. Meet the first Saturday of each month at 10 am, usually at the trailhead at 14th Ave. SW and SW Holly Street, but starting places may vary; watch postings for individual hikes. We hike mostly on constructed and maintained gravel trails, suitable for family outings.

The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle, spreading over 550 acres in West Seattle from the tip of Pigeon Point to Westcrest Park. Urban forests are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty, contribute to our health, and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Here’s the schedule for the 2019 season. All hikes start at 10:00 am.

April 6: Bird watching hike with Scott Markowitz, an international birder, member of the board of directors at Tahoma Audubon. Meet at the Puget Park trailhead at 4418 21st Ave. S.W.

June 1: “Walking Native Land” on National Trails Day with Ken Workman, a descendant of Chief Seattle and a member of the Duwamish Tribe. Ken will talk about his personal experience growing up in the greenbelt and his tribe’s use of the land and nearby Duwamish River.

The hike begins at 10 a.m. near the Chinese Garden at South Seattle College. We’ll walk down Puget Ridge to the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center and return. This hike is on unimproved trail with aspirations to be a connector between ridge and river, about two miles round-trip with 200 feet of elevation gain coming back. Wear good shoes or boots and be prepared for small obstacles like logs, brush, and walking near the edge of West Marginal Way.

July 6: Native plant identification with Steve Richmond of GardenCycles

August 3: Geology and land use history with Paul West and Craig Rankin

Celebrate 80 Years of Climbing Schurman Rock at Camp Long’s Mountain Fest @ Camp Long
Sep 7 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

Seattle Parks and Recreation opens historic Camp Long for its free, family-friendly Mountain Festival on September 7 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.—where anyone, from novices to hard-core enthusiasts, can get their hands on the rocks and feet off the ground.

Visitors to the Camp Long Mountain Fest will find an exhilarating mix of climbing, conviviality, and challenge. They can test themselves on the high ropes course,* and swap stories afterwards, or simply enjoy some downtime and spirited conversation with kindred climbers around the fire pit, eating hot dogs and s’mores (vegetarian options available).

Vertical World, a local climbing gym, will run a climbing wall where individuals can scale the same rock that Clark Schurman and Fred Beckey, living legends among Northwest mountaineers, used to practice on.* Schurman Rock was constructed between 1938 and 1939 by the Works Progress Administration, and is believed to be the first artificial climbing structure in the U.S.. Mountain Madness, a climbing guide and mountaineering company, will run a rappel station down the camp’s “Glacier Wall.”

Visitors can also listen to presentations from Mountaineers Books authors including Jeff Smoot, Linnea Westerfield, and Susan Elderkin. Camp Long cabins will host local artists including photographer Holli Margell and Molly Hashimoto. In addition, multiple community organizations will be on site to discuss nature-focused issues from noxious weeds to bird identification.

* Space for climbing and ropes course is limited so early arrival to the festival and sign-up is encouraged. Waivers are required for all climbing activities and will be available at the lodge.

All events are free and take place at Camp Long (5200 35th. Ave. SW). Located in West Seattle, this 68-acre park offers visitors an opportunity to enjoy nature, hike in the forest, camp overnight in rustic cabins, rock climb, and learn about natural history. A talented staff of naturalists and ropes-course staff lead ongoing group environmental education and rock climbing classes. Programs at Camp Long are designed to be fun, educational, and interactive experiences for all ages.

For more information about the Camp Long Mountain Fest, please call 206-423-3460 or visit the Camp Long climbing rock page. Camp Long Mountain Fest is sponsored by Seattle Parks and Recreation and the Associated Recreation Council. Partners include O2 Outdoor Opportunities Program, Girl Scouts of Washington, Mountain Madness, Mountaineers Books, WA Alpine Club, Vertical World, and King County Noxious Weed Program.

Mountain Fest at Camp Long @ Camp Long Environmental Learning Center

Learning to Skate in a Warzone (if you’re a girl)/Men on Hold

October 5 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Learning to Skateboard tells the story of young Afghan girls learning to read, write – and skateboard – in Kabul. After years of conflict, and with Afghanistan still dubbed “one of the worst places to be born a girl,” an organisation called “Skateistan” recruits kids from poor neighbourhoods and teaches them skills so they can return to public school and get a start in life.

Men on Hold explores the psychological and societal effects of war and displacement on refugee men from Syria, shedding light on issues that have so far gone neglected. These men are finding themselves under extreme stress as they have forego traditional gender roles as “providers” and “protectors” of their families, leaving them with feelings of helplessness and disempowerment as they find themselves forcibly unproductive, having nothing to do all day long.

Indigenous Futures – The Condor & the Eagle

October 5 @ 7:00pm-9:00pm

n this documentary, four Indigenous environmental leaders embark on an extraordinary trans-continental adventure from the Canadian plains to deep into the heart of the Amazonian jungle to unite the peoples of North and South America and deepen the meaning of “Climate Justice”. The Condor & The Eagle offers a glimpse into a developing spiritual renaissance as the film four protagonists learn from each other’s long legacy of resistance to colonialism and its extractive economy. Their path through the jungle takes them on an unexpectedly challenging and liberating journey, which will forever change their attachment to the Earth and one another.

Mi’Gwidelmag Gnitjgamitj (Remembering Our Grandpa)

Inspired by Incident at Restigouche (Alanis Obomsawin, 1984), Mi’gwidelmag Gnitjgamitj is a short essay film that captures the beautiful landscapes of Listuguj, but also a dark side of Canada. The film focuses on the experiences of director Nation Isaac’s grandfather in the 1981 Quebec Provincial Police raid of Listuguj, and on Isaac’s own relationship to her grandfather’s life and legacy.

RSVP here.

Seattle is changing thousands of residential lots from ‘Single Family’ to ‘Residential Small Lot’ (RSL) as part of the MHA zoning reform.

First, what is RSL and what kinds of new development are we likely to see?

Second, how does RSL address displacement, affordability, density or sustainability?

Social Justice Film Institute Presents Öngtupqa and Hopi Native Flute Performance @ Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center
Nov 16 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

This Social Justice Film Institute is a Community Benefit Cinema cause for the Duwamish Longhouse. All donations and sales will go directly to Duwamish Tribal Services.

Gary Stroutsos will present an evening playing traditional Hopi flute music and showing the accompanying documentary, Öngtupqa. Öngtupqa – the Hopi name for Grand Canyon, that translates to “Salt Canyon” is the creation of musicians’ Clark Tenakhongva, Vice Chairman of the Hopi Tribe and renowned traditional singer; Gary Stroutsos playing the Hopi long flute, and Matthew Nelson playing clay pot percussion.

This documentary film Öngtupqa shares Hopi cultural connections to the canyon through music and spoken word, stunning images of Grand Canyon, live music footage, time-lapse imagery, and much more. The trio recorded the album inside the Grand Canyon’s Desert View Watchtower, a stone edifice located on the south rim of the canyon, whose architecture is inspired by Puebloan ruins. Clark Tenakhongva, Gary Stroutsos and Matthew Nelson use their mastery of voice, flute and clay pot percussion to bring the acoustics within the Watchtower to life. Öngtupqa music is an acoustic soundscape intended to honor the surrounding landscape through music created on-site that could never be replicated in a studio far from the views and spirit of Grand Canyon.

Gary Stroutsos live performances have captivated audiences around the world. His meditative flute music and time-honored stories evoke the lands and cultures that he has studied over the course of his 35-year career. Gary’s mission is to carry the music forward to future generations and to promote stewardship of diverse cultures and the natural environment.
