tribulations, trojan women, and the hockey puck

Nic Cha Kim is one busy guy. He's a co-founder of Gallery Row and his downtown art gallery, Niche L.A. offers free film screenings on Wednesday nights. Did I mention that he's producing the play Trojan Women for Lodestone Theatre and it opens this weekend? All that and a day job working for Disney. I feel like such a slacker.

I can't even make it to his screening tonight. I'm also missing tonight's Skid Row Walk and the DLANC Outreach Center Spruce-Up. What am I doing that's so important that I'll willingly miss all these downtown events? I'm going to see Mr. Warmth himself, Don Rickles, at the Central Library. Gawd, I hope he insults me.

Niche.LA Video Art invites you and a guest to attend a free movie screening of "Tribulation 99: Alien Anomalies Under America (1992)" by Craig Baldwin.

In the year 1000, aliens from the planet Quetzalcoatl flee their dying planet and take refuge under the Earth's surface. Disturbed by 1950s American atomic testing, the aliens strike back at the USA in such varied schemes as the replicant Castro, the psychic vampire regime in Grenada and the Allende plot to alter the Earth's axis. Only covert action by the CIA can stop the dreaded Quetzals. Running Time: 48 min.

Every Wednesday, the curators of Niche.LA Video Art celebrate the best in film by showcasing a free movie night. Space is limited, so please RSVP via email, or call/text (213) 247-0002.

Please bring your own refreshments.

Don't forget about his play, Trojan Women:

Lodestone Theatre Ensemble presents its mainstage production of Kenneth Cavander’s translation of Euripides’ classic play The Trojan Women, running August 4-26, 2007 at the GTC Burbank (1111-B West Olive Ave., Burbank, CA 91506) located inside George Izay Park.

In keeping with the theater’s mission to support and foster Asian Pacific American artists, the play has been cast with Asian Pacific American actors led by veterans Emily Kuroda (The Gilmore Girls) and Kelvin Han Yee (Lucky You). In addition to Kuroda and Yee, the cast also includes Feodor Chin, Elpidio Ebuen, Vincent Gabucan, Junko Goda, Jayne Han, Elaine Kao, Jully Lee, Stephanie Lincoln, Molly Mickelson, Janet Song, Patricia Ayame Thomson, Angie Tsang & Juliet Wong. The Trojan Women is produced by Stephanie Chang and Nic Cha Kim.
