1115 Solano Ave.
October 4: Our Beautiful Planet Home Living in, coping with, and learning from our changing environment: coyotes in San Francisco, cattle ranching in Silicon Valley, vertical cave diving in China.
October 5: Ai Wei Wei: Yours Truly Bay Area directors Cheryl Haines and Gina Leibrecht tell the powerful story of the outspoken artist and activist Ai Wei Wei’s Yours Truly exhibition at the former island penitentiary of Alcatraz.
October 6: On the Edge People following their own unique paths: America’s desert “hairstorian,” a boy’s quest to become a butler, a young woman’s quest to be more animated, genderqueer partners in love, an animated East Bay punk band chases fame during a pandemic.
October 11: Somewhere Else Instead Understanding where we are and might be: a wandering puzzle piece, a drag artist and an unusual request, a man who lives with Parkinson’s, dancing on the Albany bulb, a strange night in LA.
October 12: Transformations Exploring people and ideas in the midst of change: an LGBTQ+ generation gap, reclaiming the swastika as a message of peace, a circus seeking to do what others cannot do, two counties approach criminal justice differently.
October 13: Engaging with Life Living an authentic life: An artist of many “firsts,” a nonbinary social worker/activist, brave students resisting Nazis, and an aging magician looking for connection.
