Flatland Gallery + Brasil Presents "Basquiat"
Hosted by Nicky Davis
Please join us at Brasil for the free screening of the 1996 Drama "Basquiat". Despite living a life of extreme poverty in Brooklyn, graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat (Jeffrey Wright) strives to rise up through the heady New York art scene of the 1970s and 1980s. He becomes the brightest star of neo-Expressionist painting and one of the most successful painters of his time, and even develops a friendship with Andy Warhol (David Bowie). But Basquiat's tumultuous life, specifically his addiction to heroin, overshadows his rise to fame, threatening all.
This Rev is a particularly exciting one - it is also a celebration of the release of the second edition of Marcel Wormsley's poetry collection, “In Search of Moonlit Crevices”! In addition to the usual music there will be live readings of excerpts, art by the book's illustrators Olena Zavakevych and Elena Reznikova, and books available for purchase. You can order this book online, but Marcel will be here to sign your copy - don't miss this opportunity!
The Rev is free and open to all people, so bring your friends and enjoy some great music, company, drinks, and eats! This is also a family-friendly event, so don't call the babysitter - kids are our best fans! If you'd like to play, bring your instrument and your favorite sheet music, and a music stand and stand lights if you have them. If you don't have sheet music but would like to play something you know, send a message Zelda Faith Music ahead of time and she will try to get it. RSVP HERE

Free Film Night at Brasil
Outdoor Movie in Montrose HTX
”Roma,” a masterful drama by Alfonso Cuarón, is many things at once: epic and intimate, mythic and mundane. Based on Cuarón’s memories of growing up in a bourgeois Mexico City household in the 1970s, this tone-poem to his youth is shot through with vivid sensory cues that pulse with equal parts delight, sensuality and sadness. Shot by Cuarón himself in widescreen black-and-white — a format that lends monumentality and permanence to the quotidian, evanescent events depicted here — “Roma” achieves the rare feat of making the personal authentically political, not through explicit polemic or tortured metaphors, but simply by observing life with enough perspective to reflect it in all its contradictions. - Washington Post

Winner of Sundance Film Festival and arguably the best LGBTQ film of 2018, The Miseducation of Cameron Post is making it's second debut in Houston Texas!
On November 30th TFF MAG will be hosting a FREE screening of The Miseducation of Cameron Post. We are happy to host this FAB event as the film is something everyone who is a part of the queer community should see. Make sure arrive early as space is limited! SEE YOU ALL THERE!
"Based on the celebrated novel by Emily M. Danforth, The Miseducation of Cameron Post follows Cameron (Chloë Grace Moretz) as she is sent to a gay conversion therapy center after getting caught with another girl in the back seat of a car on prom night. Run by the strict and severe Dr. Lydia Marsh (Jennifer Ehle) and her brother, Reverend Rick (John Gallagher Jr.)—himself an example of how those in the program can be “cured”—the center is built upon repenting for “same sex attraction.” In the face of intolerance and denial, Cameron meets a group of fellow sinners including the amputee stoner Jane (Sasha Lane), and her friend, the Lakota Two-Spirit, Adam (Forrest Goodluck). Together, this group of teenagers form an unlikely family as they fight to survive." RSVP HERE
