Utah Film Center Live Stream: Mish Mish

Shortly after the death of his special uncles, Didier Frenkel descends into the basement of their shared home and finds a treasure: an ancient archive of animated films from Egypt starring Mish-Mish Effendi, the Arab equivalent of Mickey Mouse. His uncles kept this surprising chapter of their lives undercover. Didier begins restoring the films and unveils the work of the Arab world’s pioneers in this genre, the Frenkel brothers, who disappeared from Egyptian screens when the State of Israel was created. Through their animated images, we uncover the history of the Frenkel family, marked by exile, a trauma being repeated today. “Bukra fil Mish-Mish” is a common Arabic expression referring to something which will never happen: “if pigs could fly”. At the same time, the extraordinary discovery of these films reveals a forgotten era gone forever, an Arab-Jewish golden age when the two communities could create things together. Not only has it disappeared, but it has also been erased from the pages of history.

Free Live Stream: City Hall

City government touches almost every aspect of our lives. Most of us are unaware of or take for granted these necessary services such as police, fire, sanitation, veterans affairs, elder support, parks, licensing of various professional activities, record keeping of birth, marriage, and death as wells as hundreds of other activities that support Boston residents and visitors. City Hall, by Frederick Wiseman, shows the efforts by Boston city government to provide these services. The film also illustrates the variety of ways the city administration enters into civil discourse with the citizens of Boston. Mayor Walsh and his administration are presented addressing a number of their policy priorities which include racial justice, affordable housing, climate action, and homeless. City Hall shows a city government successfully offering a wide variety of services to a diverse population.

Film Discussion: Black, Bold, & Brilliant: Black Joy

Black, Bold, & Brilliant presents the next episode in our series of conversations about Black-centric films and media: Black Joy. Discussion with Ashley Cleveland, James Brown, Arvin Mitchell, and Wynter The Poet. Black Joy is everywhere at the moment. It’s in the media, it’s on everyone’s lips, and it’s the latest topic we’re exploring on Black, Bold, & Brilliant. Black Joy is a form of radical self care to have grace, hold space, and work on yourself to continue persevering in an uncertain world. It’s in the way we walk, the way we talk, the way we dance, the way we sing, and the way we strive to just be- in a fullness of expression that is uniquely Black and all our own. Join us, as we go behind the movement and the magic as we kickoff the 2021 Utah Juneteenth Festival!
