“Remember Isobel” Set To Screen In Sacramento

Local filmmaker Sarah Barbulesco-Lamb will present “Remember Isobel,” her new dramatic feature film exploring the challenges and tragedy of Alzheimer’s disease, this January in Sacramento.

“Remember Isobel” tells the story of the Martin-Bailey family as they struggle to deal with the loss of their beloved grandmother, Isobel, to Alzheimer's.

Writer/director Sarah Barbulesco-Lamb first conceived of the idea to write a story about Alzheimer's in 2009, after bearing witness to the attentive and loving care her grandfather gave to her grandmother during her descent into Alzheimer's.

Equality California Thanks Brown for Historic Commitment to LGBTQ Civil Rights

Equality California, the nation's largest statewide LGBTQ civil rights organization, released the following statement from Executive Director Rick Zbur on Monday, Jan. 7th 2019:

“Governor Jerry Brown has long championed the cause of LGBTQ equality in California, making more progress in his four terms than any other governor in the nation to date. From decriminalizing same-sex relationships in 1975 and appointing the state’s first openly gay judge in 1979 to signing more than 55 pro-equality bills into law during the last eight years, Governor Brown has affirmed his commitment to ensuring all Californians are treated with equal dignity and respect. We have not always agreed with the governor’s approach to achieving full LGBTQ equality, but we have never once doubted his sincere dedication to our cause.

Beautiful Black Folks At The Movies - Plus “Rosemary’s Baby” At The Crest

by Chris Narloch

So many of the movies released this Christmas were so bad that I decided to spotlight several fine films featuring African-American actors, two of them films released at Thanksgiving (“Creed ll” and “The Green Book”) that are still playing at one or two area theaters.

Additionally, I also review “If Beale Street Could Talk,” which is helmed by Barry Jenkins (the great African-American director of “Moonlight”) and features a superb, mostly black cast. “If Beale Street Could Talk” opened at Sacramento’s Tower Theatre on Christmas Day.
