Have you ever wanted to learn how to make your own beer? Well now’s your chance! Shapeshifters co-director and proprietor of Temescal Homebrewing, Gilbert Guerrero, will be teaching Kitchen Pot Alchemy: Beer-making for Filmmakers, a one-day, online workshop next Saturday, 11/21 on how to brew beer in your very own kitchen. He’ll be making a unique, seasonal beer using simple ingredients, which you will be able to consume in just a matter of weeks, or....use it to process your own film (which you can also learn all about in a second workshop: Eco-Brew: Hand Processing with Beer and Other Natural Materials, taught by Lisa Marr and Paolo Davanzo of Echo Park Film Center on 11/29). Sign up for one or both! Neither workshop is contingent on the other and no prior experience in beer or filmmaking is necessary.

Live from Shapeshifters: Lori Varga, Dennis Keefe & Kit Young — Sunday, November 1, 2020, 7:00pm Paying homage to the historic Vortex Planetarium sessions of 1959, Bay Area artists Lori Varga, Dennis Keefe and Kit Young will combine their massive arsenal of A/V systems to perform three distinct pieces celebrating the art of synesthesia. Pairing early electronic soundscapes with modular and semi-modular visual systems made from 16mm film projectors, vintage lumia equipment + state of the art digital and hand-built A/V systems, the trio will forge new pathways into alternate realities sculpted from cosmic light and sound in five dimensions! Viewers are invited to watch this by tuning in on November 1st from 7-8pm to watch the livestream. http://www.shapeshifterscinema.com/livestream/
