Eurythmics Frontman, Dave Stewart, in conversation with KCRW’s Gary Calamar

Skirball Center

2701 North Sepulveda Boulevard Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA 90049

8:00pm

Dave Stewart’s life has been a wild ride one filled with music, constant reinvention, and the never-ending drive to create. Growing up in industrial northern England, he left home for the gritty London streets of the seventies, where he began collaborating and performing with various musicians, including a young waitress named Annie Lennox.   The chemistry between Stewart and Lennox was undeniable, and an intense romance developed. While their passion proved too much offstage, they thrived musically and developed their own sound. They called themselves Eurythmics and launched into global stardom with the massively popular album Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).

For the first time, Stewart shares the incredible, high-octane stories of his life in music the drug-fueled adventures, the A-list collaborations and relationships, and the creative process that brought us blockbusters from Eurythmics like Here Comes the Rain Again and Would I Lie to You as well as Tom Petty’s Don’t Come Around Here No More, No Doubt’s Underneath It All, Golden Globe winner Old Habits Die Hard with Mick Jagger, and many more.

The Summer of Sangaile

Cinefamily

611 N. Fairfax, Los Angeles, CA

10:30pm

With DJ Vickki and DJ Shmal!
The Lithuanian answer to Blue is the Warmest Color—this time void of the male gaze—The Summer of Sangaile presents a dreamy lakeside love story between two young girls who tumble together through a brief but tender summertime season. Auste, a local unafraid to immerse herself in the riches of life’s pleasures, meets and falls for the reserved Sangaile, who harbors a not-so-subtly symbolic interest in aerobatic stunt planes. With a serene landscape that could get top billing as a lead character and cinematography that lingers on sunsoaked kneecaps and collar bones, second-time director Alanté Kavaïté has created a gorgeous film rife with Sapphic bliss. Driven by the female gaze of its maker, The Summer of Sangaile is sumptuous and seductive, bolstered by an affecting story of self-discovery beneath its gossamer surface.
Dir Alanté Kavaïté, 2015, DCP, 88 min.
