FILM SCREENS @ 7:15pm
Please join the Ventura Film Society on Thursday September 10 @ 7:15pm at the Century 10 Downtown Ventura for “THE SALT OF THE EARTH”. German director Wim Wenders (Buena Vista Social Club, Pina, Paris Texas, Wings of Desire) confirms his mastery of the documentary form in this stunning visual ode to the great Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado. Long recognized as one of the camera’s great artists, Sebastiao’s sculptural use of light and space is combined with a deep empathy for the human condition, resulting in richly complex black-and-white images that capture the dignity within every subject. For the last 40 years, Sebastiao has been travelling across continents, in the footsteps of an ever-changing humanity. He has witnessed some of the major events of our recent history - international conflicts, starvation and exodus. He is now embarking on the discovery of pristine territories, of wild fauna and flora, and of grandiose landscapes as part of a huge photographic project which is a tribute to the planet's beauty. Sebastião Salgado's life and work are revealed to us by Wenders and by the photographer’s son, co-director Juliano Ribeiro Salgado, who has travelled extensively with his father.

Thanks to everyone who attended the VFS’s Season 7 opener on February 27th. Great to see so many people who've been with us from the start in 2008, including Denise Sindelar from the City of Ventura's Community Partnerships, Bell Arts Factory's Jim Rice, major supporters Patti Channer & Mary & Bill Karrh, Bob & Paula Chianese, and founding members Friday Lubina and Aricia Lee. Also good to see Jeanie Flowers, Kathleen Morris, Kevin Clerici of Downtown Ventura Partners, Camille Harris, and longtime film sponsors Helen Yunker, Gene & Cynthia Loughman, and Chris & Suzy Reinhart.

Our volunteers, many with us from day one, were great as always. Thanks a lot to Patti Ridenour, Geovany Jones, Steve Aguilar, Jerry Horstmeyer, Larry Schloff, Betty Ann Anear, and our new volunteers Kathy Thomas and Deby Tygell. We also appreciate Shanon Rice & Robert Bermudez of the Museum of Ventura County for hosting another of the VFS's opening nights. We'll be back there in June for a series of summer films.

I really appreciate everyone who's come to any of the nearly 400 films we've shown these past 7 years. We're looking forward to making 2015 another memorable one for cinema in Ventura.

So please join us on Thurs. March 26th for "MR. TURNER" at the Century 10 Downtown.
