HOLLYWOOD—The 21st Annual Arpa International Film Festival (Arpa IFF), being held at Hollywood’s historic Egyptian Theatre from November 2 to 4, has announced the lineup of 46 films from 17 countries being screened this year. Arpa IFF will once again highlight a diverse range of films that explore themes such as genocide, war, feminism, family dynamics, environmentalism, music, art, adoption, intersectional identities, and LGBTQ issues.

Honorees this year include:

Edward James Olmos – Lifetime Achievement Award
Academy Award-nominated actor/producer (Stand and Deliver, American Me, Selena, Miami Vice, The Burning Season, Battlestar Galactica, Mayans MC)
*Opening Night – Friday 11/2

*Awards Ceremony on Sunday 11/4

Opening night on Friday, November 2 will kick off with a special reception and screening of MONDAY NIGHTS AT SEVEN, a love story about a single father who is struggling unsuccessfully to let go of his past. The film stars Edward James Olmos, Marty Sader, past Arpa IFF award recipient Mary Apick and mixed martial arts legend Anderson Silva. A special ceremony honoring Edward James Olmos with a Lifetime Achievement Award will follow the screening of the film. Olmos, currently starring in the television series Mayans M.C., has played iconic roles both in film and television, receiving Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for “Stand and Deliver” (1988).

Saturday evening’s centerpiece program and reception will showcase two amazing films – YEVA, Armenia’s foreign language film Oscar submission last year, as well as DIVERTED EDEN written and directed by Prince Baghdasarian. YEVA, an Armenian-Iranian co-production, is set against the backdrop of the long-running conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh). Director Anahid Abad tells the story of a young woman named Yeva who escapes her influential in-laws with her daughter, after her husband’s tragic death and takes refuge in one of the villages of Karabakh. Yeva, accused of murdering her husband, is a complete stranger in this village and is obliged to live her daily life in disguise.

DIVERTED EDEN, winner of the Audience Award at this year’s Sedona International Film Festival, is the story of a war hero who takes matters into his own hands after his young daughter is kidnapped, as detectives unravel the mystery surrounding the unusual crime. Director Prince Bagdasarian’s debut feature “Abstraction” (2013) starring Ken Davitian and Korrina Rico won the Audience Award at Arpa IFF that same year.

The 21st Annual Arpa International Film Festival will close with a special Awards Ceremony on Sunday, November 4 at the Egyptian Theatre, with Ed Asner, Natalie Qasabian and Sveva Alviti being honored.

SPIRIT AWAKENING FOUNDATION VOICES OF THE UNHEARD THU NOV 1 7:00PM Skirball Cultural Center, 2701 N Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles

Article By: Marcelle - Oct• 29•18

SPIRIT AWAKENING FOUNDATION
VOICES OF THE UNHEARD

Skirball Cultural Center, 2701 N Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles
THU NOV 1 7:00PM $75 – 125.
Doors open at 6 p.m. Showtime begins promptly at 7 p.m. followed by V.I.P reception at 8 p.m

SPIRIT AWAKENING FOUNDATION (SAF) presents its annual VOICES OF THE UNHEARD/L.O.V.E spoken word and theatrical performance hosted by Rev. Michael Beckwith at Skirball Cultural Center, Thursday, November 1, 2018 from 7 – 9 p.m. This event features the writings of incarcerated and at-risk children and young adults in the Los Angeles County juvenile justice system.

The powerful, heart-pounding and soul-searching words are written by our most vulnerable youth and performed through song, dance, poetry and storytelling. Many of these children have been deeply wounded, and from their suffering, have begun lashing out. It is our goal to heal these children so they can grow up to better themselves and their communities. With what it takes to incarcerate one child in the juvenile justice system, SAF is able to implement an entire year of holistic programming for 60 students! By amplifying the voices of unheard youth in Los Angeles, we offer them another way to discover who they truly are – and we give the world a chance to understand them and celebrate them. This year, SAF honors longtime Board Member Bertrand Christian Esq., Actor and Comedian Debra Wilson, and The California Wellness Foundation, with CEO Judy Belk.

SAF is a non-profit dedicated to helping youth realize their spiritual identity through meditation, creative writing, improvisation, visual arts and mentorship to build character and raise self-esteem, one child at a time. We are a community of teachers, mentors and philanthropists who help deliver arts-based restorative programs to at-risk and incarcerated youth in the greater Los Angeles area. With programs hailed as “creative, innovative and powerful” by the California State Department of Justice, SAF has been a pioneer in restorative justice and juvenile delinquency prevention.

Presented by Spirit Awakening Foundation.

O MATTER WHERE THEY COME FROM, WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THEM, AND WHAT THEY’VE DONE, THERE IS A STRONG, CLEAR, BEAUTIFUL, AND PURPOSEFUL LIFE IN EVERY INCARCERATED CHILD.
Voices of the Unheard is a yearly theatrical performance hosted by Spirit Awakening at which the public comes together to listen to and support them.

Featuring spoken word poetry, song, dance, and storytelling, the event showcases and celebrates the unedited voices of our most vulnerable citizens.

OVER 80% OF INCARCERATED JUVENILES ARE VICTIMS OF RAPE, MOLESTATION, OR SUBSTANCE-ADDICTED PARENTS OR GUARDIANS.

Many of these children are deeply wounded, and in their pain and misery, they lash out against their surroundings.

It’s our goal to heal those children so that they can grow up to better themselves and their communities. With what it takes to incarcerate one child in the juvenile justice system ($68,000), the Spirit Awakening Foundation is able to implement an entire year of holistic programming for 60 students!

By amplifying their voices, we give these children another chance to discover who they truly are — and we give the world a chance to understand them.
