The Road Home One by One Gala

Since 2001 The Road Home has held a One by One breakfast that focuses solely on our agency's programs. We are virtually continuing this tradition, but with an exciting twist. This year's event will include a panel discussion from some of The Road Home's frontline staff about what happened during 2020 on the ground and how you—our community—were at the heart of helping the people we serve during extraordinary challenges!

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.

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!

This discussion is presented in partnership with the Utah Juneteenth Festival. Registration Link: https://watch.eventive.org/utahfilmcenter/play/6083546c73f57c0099d12511 Facebook Event Link: https://www.facebook.com/events/250923023389409
