Diva - it's back

A new 35mm print of the 1982 indie hit, Diva, is touring the country. Is it coming to your town? Check the schedule here (and watch the trailer). It's been too long for me to remember all my impressions of this film, other than: very colorful, very arty, very opera. The Ironwood Cafe in San Francisco where I worked for a couple of years would play the experimental soundtrack to chase people out of the restaurant when they lingered past closing time. We all loved that soundtrack because it meant the bosses wanted us to clean up and go home for the night. That's the power of art.
