6pm The Movie
Bolinas Library Presents “Arrangiarsi” (Pizza…the art of living) Movie and Q&A with Director Matteo Troncone, See trailer and extra info at http://www.arrangiarsifilm.com/
Arrangiarsi (pizza… and the art of living)” chronicles my journey in search of the secret of the pizza in Naples. There, I also discovered “arrangiarsi”: the art of making something out of nothing.
Only the Italians have a common verb for this art form and the Neapolitans are known all over Italy as being the masters.
During the making of this film, I lived for five years in my camper van in California and in a tent in Naples, Italy where I made a total of nine trips for filming. I worked, bartered and “arranged” my life to create this film that I wrote, directed, produced, photographed, narrated and edited.
To truly understand the film’s subject matter, it was important for me to actually “live it” — not just go to Naples for two weeks with a big budget, a film crew and be a “tourist,” but to immerse myself and deeply experience the culture.
The film also explores each element of Neapolitan pizza: the tomato, wheat and olive harvests, as well as Italy’s only organic buffalo mozzarella farm. In addition to each ingredient, the film examines the skill of the “pizzaiolo” (pizza-maker) and reveals their secrets.
From the beginning, I envisioned this project to be more of a non-fiction film with narrative elements rather than a documentary with talking heads. I wanted this film to be “alive” — like Naples, and the pizza it created.
This seven-year project is my love letter to Naples, pizza, Italy, and the knowledge that “there is always a way.”

With the end of another year comes reflection, and for many, there’s always the question of whether we’re living our best lives or not. That means different things for different people, but in general, it comes down to your overall well-being. Are you stressed often, or do you suffer from anxiety? Do you find yourself exhausted much of the time and unable to find joy in the small things because you’re so tired?
It’s easy to fall into habits that leave you feeling this way, especially if you have work, school, a family, and other responsibilities to worry about. Some of those habits are otherwise harmless, such as keeping a full schedule, but when combined with other stressors, they can leave you feeling overwhelmed and unable to perform to the best of your ability. It’s time to think about the best ways you can eliminate bad habits and figure out how to successfully stay on track with your goals for the new year, as well as how to sustain them. Read on to find out how.

HopeDance FiLMs presents “CRAZYWISE”
Suggested Donation: $10/ No one will be refused…
A feature documentary challenging the current mental health system in crisis. A 20-year fascination with shamanism leads photographer and filmmaker Phil Borges to question how Western cultures define and treat severe mental disorders.
Crazy…or wise? The traditional wisdom of indigenous cultures often contradicts modern views about a mental health crisis. Is it a ‘calling’ to grow or just a ‘broken brain’? The documentary CRAZYWISE explores what can be learned from people around the world who have turned their psychological crisis into a positive transformative experience.
Conversations have always included mental health practitioners, ex-mental patients, therapists of all kinds
