LIVE PERFORMANCES BY: Power Struggle Astralogik Rachel Lastimosa of Dirty Boots MUSIC PROVIDED BY: DJs Calalo & Slum B (Isa Collective) PERFORMER BIOS: Power Struggle - Mario de Mira aka Nomi of the hip-hop group Power Struggle has spent many years touring with groups like Atmosphere, Brother Ali, De La Soul, and DJ Shadow. He has shared the stage with Souls of Mischief and Snoop Dogg and has received critical acclaim for his albums “Arson at the Petting Factory” and “Remittances”. He has performances throughout the U.S., Italy and the Philippines. Before working at the FCC, Mario was a basic laborer, who worked in various fields from light manufacturing, manual labor and also the service industry. His experience as a worker has helped him relate to the issues that affect so many disenfranchised workers in the community. Recently, he helped organize Migrante Northern California, a Filipino group fighting for workers and immigrant rights, and actively workers with the Progressive Worker’s Alliance. Astralogik - Charito Soriano (soulful-singer), born and raised in the Bay Area, joined forces with Rowena ‘FunkCH3N’ Conlu (guitarist) circa 2010. Since then, they have been creating and evolving into the acoustic-electronic duo that you hear today. Their music combines natural organic sounds of the classical guitar, a sultry voice, and the musical technologies of the 21stcentury; bringing you a unique blend of frequencies. With these vibrations, they have worked very hard in their craft to share a musical experience that reflects ideas of conscious freedom, inspiration, courage, strength, light, and LOVE.

Kidlat Tahimik, the “grandfather of avant-garde Filipino cinema,” creates a large-scale art installation, featuring boats by artist Cece Carpio and contributed artifacts from the community. Join us for a reception featuring music by Dirty Boots, screenings of Kidlat Tahimik’s films, and an intimate conversation with Kidlat over Lechon pig and drinks. An idol of iconoclasts worldwide, a pioneer of the postcolonial essay film, and the grandfather of the Philippine New Wave, Kidlat Tahimik has made a career of—as he puts it—“straying on track.” Born Eric de Guia and educated at the Wharton School of Business, Tahimik renounced both career and name to become Kidlat Tahimik (roughly translated as “Quiet Lighting”) and embrace a filmmaking aesthetic unabashedly personal and defiantly political, filled with both warmth and fire. Tahimik has created a string of documentaries, one fiction feature film, and several art installations, all of which demonstrate his love of wordplay both silly and sophisticated and his ability to blend politics and the imagination in surprising and revealing ways. His debut film, Perfumed Nightmare (1977)-investigating neocolonial identity, Philippine culture, and global economies-became an international hit. “the joyful discovery of blasé film buffs from Berlin to Belgrade and beyond” (SF Chronicle, 1980) “likely to become some sort of classic” (Village Voice, 1980) Make Your Own Revolution: Fictions of Dictatorship September 20-22, 2013 This September, stroll with Kidlat Tahimik, the “grandfather of avant-garde Filipino cinema,” for a one-of-kind art and performance experience, including: marching jazzy funk by James Dumlao and Rachel Lastimosa of Dirty Boots; folk & roots vocalist Aireene Espiritu; the blended electronic/tribal beats of Kulintronica; improvised turntablism and live video mixing by DJ Un-G and DJ JoelQuiz; and theater artists Sean San Jose, Allan Manalo and Jason Magabo Perez. Join Kularts for a weekend of art and performance inspired by people’s resistance to state violence. Over forty years ago, Ferdinand Marcos declared Martial Law, ushering over two decades of brutal dictatorship, repression, murders (aka “salvaging”), and the subsequent revolution, now known as “People Power Movement.” “Make Your Own Revolution” responds to the terror of the Marcos regime and celebrates the triumph of the Philippine resistance, while acknowledging other struggles against injustice worldwide.
