Last time was so fun, and a great excuse to get out and beep at movies in a vast socially-distanced way.

This time, Fort Mason will not have a food truck, so please feel free to BYO picnic, and know that alcohol is FORBIDDEN 😉 in their guidelines!

Your ticket helps cover the venue cost, insurance, video editing, and anything left over supports the SFIOP!  We really need to sell the place out to make the numbers work, so getting the word out now is a huge help 🙂

Icelandic Double Feature

Join us at Chez Poulet for a DOUBLE FEATURE about Iceland!

8pm on Thursday, May 26
Chez Poulet, 3359 Cesar Chavez, SF
First, we will be screening Blueberry Soup, an extraordinary documentary about the constitutional change in Iceland following the financial crisis of 2008. This is a lesser-known story of grassroots constitutionalism, and an inspiration to the rest of the world. The film is a deeply touching account of an eclectic group of individuals reinventing democracy through the rewriting of the nation’s constitution.

Is it true that a country can crowdsource its constitution…?
Is it true that the arts in a civic environment can effect political change…?
Is it true that Chicken went to Iceland to interview the Parliament?
You will never know until you are here!

Watch the trailer and see press for the movie here.

We will then have a few shorts about Iceland. Vice’s “The Giants of Iceland” will be featured, among others!

From there, we will screen Reyjavik Rising. Filmed in Reykjavik between 2012 and 2014, the documentary meets the instigators of the revolution and follows the most important National Referendum in Iceland’s history. Giving the Icelandic people the opportunity to decide whether to support a constitution that had been created through a popular grassroots movement. It explores the Icelanders’ story of their nation and their revolution but also what lessons can be learned globally from their experiences. In light of a growing international trend towards grassroots movements crossing over into mainstream politics. This documentary is a timely portrayal of one such movement and their struggle to change the face of democracy.

Watch the trailer and read about the creators here.

$10 admission includes popcorn!!! Two movies!!
Tickets can be bought here.
Please invite your friends on our Facebook event!

Blueberry Soup, Documentary On Iceland’s 2008 Constitutional Change

Come watch a great documentary on the 2008 constitutional change in Iceland!

Join us April 20th at Chez Poulet for a screening of Blueberry Soup, an extraordinary documentary about the constitutional change in Iceland following the financial crisis of 2008. This is a lesser-known story of grassroots constitutionalism, and an inspiration to the rest of the world. The film is a deeply touching account of an eclectic group of individuals reinventing democracy through the rewriting of the nation’s constitution.

This movie is of course super relevant to today due to the scandal rocking Iceland and the world with the Panama Papers. The Icelandic PM is currently resigning due to being caught lying about his offshore shell company money laundering.

  • Is it true that a country can crowdsource its constitution…?
  • Is it true that the arts in a civic environment can effect political change…?
  • Is it true that the director will be at Chez Poulet to answer questions…?
  • You will never know until you are here!

Screening of Blueberry Soup

Wednesday, April 20, 2016 from 8:00 PM to 11:00 PM (PDT)
Chez Poulet – 3359 Cesar Chavez Street, San Francisco, CA 94110

  • The bus will leave at 11am from Ritual Coffee Roasters, 1026 Valencia St. in the Mission District.
  • Bus begins loading at 10:30am– please come early to get cozy and ensure a timely departure.
  • The show begins at 2pm sharp at the Bay Terrace Theater, 51 Daniels Avenue, in Vallejo.

Oakland FIGMENT FUN-draiser

Last year’s Oakland Figment in Mosswood was amazing! It was the first Figment ever in the Bay Area, the largest commerce-free art festival in the Bay Area, and the last year we were the 3rd largest FIGMENT out of the 15 or so US cities that are involved and we did it because of all the support of the creative community.

Last year I was in charge of the Games portion of the event and I went around giving Fun & Frolic quests to attendees. It was a lot of fun. I’m excited to see it happen again this October 24th in Mosswood park! FIGMENT art and performance to Mosswood Park in a few weeks.

Oakland FIGMENT is an all-volunteer effort completely supported by the community and they need your help now!

To help them meet our goals they are having a fundraising kickoff party at the SF Institute of Possibility in the Mission on Monday, September 28th starting at 7:30p and we would like to invite you to join us.

You will have an opportunity to meet the people who make Oakland FIGMENT happen

Oakland FIGMENT FUN-draising Kickoff Party
