Roots samba dates back to the late 1800s and was popularized from the 1950s through 1970s in Brazil. Falso Baiano incorporates flamenco, jazz, and other genres to express their take on the music that gave birth to the samba. The performance also features special guest vocalist Katia Moraes.

Machinations in the Library

,

8:00pm

Featuring Los Angeles Times film critic Kenneth Turan and film historian Marc Wanamaker

with series curator John Nein, Senior Programmer, Sundance Film Festival

Lost & Found at the Movies is the Library Foundation's new series celebrating the art of cinema and the vitality of film culture. Eclectic in theme and varying in form, this onstage magazine explores how we lose ourselves and find ourselves at the movies.

In this fourth installment, join Nein, Turan, and Wanamaker as they explore the ways that Los Angeles has appeared in film over the years—from the very first few images of the silent era, to the suburban noir, to the blockbuster “disaster” films.  Afterwards, Turan will sign copies of his newest book, Not to be Missed: Fifty-Four Favorites From a Lifetime of Film.
