I don't know what it is about DC and film festivals, but every time you turn around there is one going on; there was the granola crunchy, Takoma Park Film Festival, there is a Green Film Festival and AFI's Film festival which starts on June 19th and runs through June 23rd. Honestly, most of the movies at AFI's festival look like those experimental/indie movies you go see just so you can seem artsy, but there are some that may actually be entertaining, like the documentary about Hunter S. Thompson entitled Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson. This film highlights Hunter S's journalistic career, his novels and even his tragic suicide that Bush indirectly may have caused. But then again, who hasn't been feeling morbid since that prick got put in office.
I digress.
But yeah, Gonza looks like a good one considering Hunter S. is brilliant writer. Another movie that seems tolerable is Bi The Way a documentary on bisexuals and the "whatever" generation. While Bi The Way won't be half as educational as Gonzo it will be packed with sex and in depth conversations with bisexuals...good times!

Showings will be held at AFI Silver Theater,mm Discovery Channels HD Theater and The Round House Theater, all of which are in downtown Silver Spring.

Tha Sickness Part 2

Aniekan Udofia is one of the most controversial artist in the area. He is best known for his hip hop portraiture, pictures of musical greats such as Fela Kuti and J Dilla, but his more political paintings are shocking and will make you question everything about the way we live.
His second opening perfectly titled "Tha Sickness", will be be showing at Bossa Lounge; May 1st from 8pm 1pm. This show is not for the weak of heart.

Bossa Lounge: 2463 18th st. NW Washington DC

X has got to be one of the most creative event ideas I have heard about thus far. The concept behind X is to create a living, breathing, multi-media exhibit to inspire artist and change the way the masses think. The creators utilize everything from film, music, fashion and even performance art; there will be a "tribal fusion belly dancer" at this months event. Trust me, you don't want to miss this!
