Concert footage from 1972 of Aretha Franklin performing songs from the best-selling gospel album at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles.

 

Peter Rainer  Christian Science Monitor:  "Amazing Grace, featuring Aretha Franklin at the height of her powers, is one of the greatest concert documentaries ever made. It reaches so far into transcendence that watching it becomes an almost ecstatic experience."

 

Brad Wheeler  Globe and Mail:  "Even for those who do not believe that God's grace is amazing, it is hard not to see Franklin in her prime as something near miraculous, with a long-buried film serving as a witness in 16mm."

 

Michael Phillips  Chicago Tribune:  "Her voice could lift people straight out of their seats in jubilation; her vocal flourishes and deep readings of the simplest, most elemental lyrics remain incomparable."

 

Ty Burr  Boston Globe:  "It stands as a mighty historical document, a balm to the soul, and proof of genius."

MOVIE:  SHADOW    (CHINESE - MARTIAL ARTS - ENGLISH SUBTITILES)      

FRIDAY    JULY 26   (7 PM)

 

With SHADOW, director Zhang Yimou (HERO, HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS) once again pushes the boundaries of wuxia action to create a film like no other, masterfully painting a canvas of inky blacks and greys punctuated with bursts of color from the blood of the defeated. In a kingdom ruled by a young and unpredictable king, the military commander has a secret weapon: a "shadow", a look-alike who can fool both his enemies and the King himself. Now he must use this weapon in an intricate plan that will lead his people to victory in a war that the King does not want.

 

Carey Darling  Houston Chronicle:  "A rapturously beautiful work...combining the exquisite details of Chinese ink-brush painting with the melodramatic extravagance and suspension of disbelief of opera."

 

Bill Goodykoontz  Arizona Republic:  ""Shadow" is absurdly entertaining once you get past that first introductory hurdle. But the rest of the film is well worth the wait."

 

Carlos Aguilar  The Wrap:  "His latest lavish feature sees the visionary storyteller operating in a slightly subtler mode, with fewer flying bodies and more philosophical concerns."

 

Randy Meyers  San Jose Mercury News:  "You've gotta see it to believe it."

Apollo 11 is a cinematic space event film fifty years in the making. Featuring never-before-seen large-format film footage of one of humanity's greatest accomplishments.

 

Chris Nashawaty  Entertainment Weekly:  "The NASA mission at the heart of the must-see documentary Apollo 11 reminds you what it feels to be truly awestruck."

 

David Fear  Rolling Stone:  "This doesn't just feel like a movie. It gives you the sensation that you've been transported right into the middle of history."

 

Glenn Kenny  New York Times:  "Entirely awe-inspiring."

 

G. Allen Johnson  San Francisco Chronicle:  "The mission was indeed a giant leap for mankind, and now we have a documentary worthy of its subject."

 

Kenneth Turan  Los Angeles Times:  "Witness "Apollo 11."

CONCERT:  MARKUS MARS - ELECTRIC VIOLIN       

FRIDAY    JULY 26   (7 PM)

 

MARKUS MARS @ HONOKA'PEOPLE'THEATER

Live looping artist and multi-instrumentalist Markus Mars composes entire concerts in front of the audience, with the audience. He makes each performance a unique experience by picking up the existing energy fields of the room, combining them with the vibes of the present energies, and transforming them into an audible superfood.

Markus Mars started his human journey in the Austria Alps. After being trained in classical music for over 15 years, composing for and touring with several Symphonic Orchestras and Chamber Orchestras, he started playing the drums and electric violin in rock, blues, world music, and fusion bands. He soon discovered his passion for electronic music making and started performing and touring internationally.

After sharing his talent in 30 countries with more than 60 bands and orchestras and playing over 3,000 shows, plant-based food enthusiast Markus Mars moved to Hawai'i and found a mesmerizing volcanic foundation for his new endeavors.

His latest manifestation is an immersive Space to Earth live-looping ceremony - an interdimensional live looping performance series with a 5-string electric violin, a telescopic didgeridoo, a subwoofer Cajon, and some alien vocal expressions, composed live in front of the audience by implementing the present vibes of the now and featuring elements of his transformational musical journeys.

Markus Mars co-creates a live looping psychedelic world music experience, sound bath, meditation, and tribal dance ceremony, gently influenced by inspiring artists such as Jean-Luc Ponty, Andrew Bird, Johann Sebastian Bach, Steve Reich, Adam Plack, Johnny (White Ant) Soames, Shpongle, Jimi Hendrix, and Miles Davis.

The debut album “Live At Perfect Harmony” is now available.

 ECSTATIC DANCE

SUNDAY   (4:30 PM)  JUNE 16

 

Come and treat yourself to the experience of free-form movement to world-rhythms mixed live at the event.

Ecstatic Dance is a place to dance “from the inside out” and connect with like-minded people of all ages in a safe and non-judgmental space. Given the large amount of people that may show up to the event and the nature of our free-form movement, for liability purposes this dance is open to anyone aged 13 years or older only.

In its most basic definition it is free-form movement/dance inspired by music, allowing our bodies to move freely without judgment or concern for the grace or beauty of the dance. This is the dance you dance as if nobody is watching! It is an inner/outer journey of moving meditation that develops a direct body-spirit connection. Let your body and inner guide be your teachers.

No dance experience or partner is necessary. It's a perfect outlet for those who think they can't dance and for experienced dancers alike. It is free-form, not a structured dance. It is also not a social dance. It is an environment without observers or conversation, where you can feel safe to try new things and really push yourself out of your comfort zone.

Ecstatic Dance Guidelines:
1. Move however you wish.
2. No talking on the dance floor or altar - low whispers off the floor please.
3. No shoes on the dance floor.
4. Water breaks to be taken off the dance floor.
