Peace Through a Bowl of Tea

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

1:00pm

Chado (the "Way of Tea") is the spirit that underlies a traditional form of Japanese culture, embodied as peace in a tea ceremony. Together the terms "harmony," "respect," “purity,” and "tranquility" also express that spirit. Dr. Genshitsu Sen, the 15th Grand Master of the Urasenke tea school, defines these key concepts and enlarges upon the peace instilled within a bowl of matcha tea. A chado demonstration is a visual accompaniment to the lecture.

My secret world: the story of Sarah Records

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

9:00pm

Sarah Records co-founder Clare Wadd in person! In March 2015, the NME declared Sarah Records to be the second greatest indie label of all time, directly behind 4AD — and for good reason. Between 1987-1995, Sarah was possibly the most “indie” of all UK indie labels: one where the participants’ principles prevailed, and attitude and actions were just as important as the music. The label that released gems by twee-pop pioneers Heavenly, The Field Mice, Another Sunny Day, 14 Iced Bears, The Orchids, Boyracer and many more was buoyed over the years by heroics and belligerence, ephemeral-eternal-pop, fanzines and its incorruptible founders Clare Wadd and Matt Haynes. My Secret World is the very first documentary exploration of this highly influential and often misunderstood stable of incredible record releases.
Dir. Lucy Dawkins, 2014, HD presentation, 102 min.
