Bisou ... french bistro on Market only one block from the Castro Theater is great for before or after dinner ... they open at 5:30 so before is no problem and after you'll see the hip Castro crowd up close and person. Food and service are really excellent !!

We took the trolley up Market St. to the Castro. Which was a nice ride. Great for people watching and the street scene. The only draw back is full trolleys and wait time. If you have time it's a great way to enjoy the city experience.

Description

Saturday Sept. 22 @ Noon: *Alms for a Blind Horse (Anhey Ghodey Da Daan) *

Gurvinder Singh (India, 2011, 113mins)

This striking film by first-time director Gurvinder Singh uses exquisite cinematography and an unusual cast of characters to portray a day in the life of a rural Punjabi family facing the demolition of their village. A worthy tribute to the legend of Indian cinema, the late Mani Kaul, who was executive producer on the film. Winner, Best Director, National Award, India.

Saturday Sept. 22 @ 2:30pm: _The World Before Her _(Sneak Peek)

Nisha Pahuja (Canada, 2012, 91mins)

Pahuja goes behind-the-scenes at the Miss India Pageant and the Hindu fundamentalist movement to capture the tension between traditional and modern perspectives toward women in today’s India. A timely expose on the fundamental contradictions of a country in transition. Winner, World Documentary Competition, Tribeca Film Festival 2012.

Saturday Sept. 22 @ 4:30pm: Lucky*

Avie Luthra (South Africa, 2011, 100mins)

Delicately crafted, both in story and visual style, this beautiful, emotional tale explores the unusual alliance between an elderly Indian woman (with a irrational fear of Africans) and a South African orphan in post-Apartheid South Africa. Based on Luthra’s earlier short, which won over 40 international awards including an Oscar nomination.

*Appropriate for Children

Saturday Sept. 22 @ 6:45pm: *Decoding Deepak *

Gotham Chopra (USA, 2012, 74mins)

Gotham Chopra in Person

Spiritual icon, Deepak Chopra, is the focus of this doc, an audience favorite at the SXSW Film Festival. Made by Gotham Chopra, it separates the man from the myth with a raw honesty only a son can have. But what starts as decoding, quickly becomes an allegory of a world trying to make sense of itself.
