Oakland Asian Cultural Center

Visit the Oakland Asian Cultural Center, or OACC, for a free screening of the documentary film “Baraka” on Friday August 25th from 6 to 9pm. Filmed in 25 countries on 6 continents, the film brings together a series of stunningly photographed scenes to capture what director Ron Fricke calls “a guided meditation on humanity.” Producer Mark Magidson explains “The goal of the film was to reach past language, nationality, religion, and politics and speak to the inner viewer.” In addition to the film screening, the evening will feature a brief presentation of Danza Azteca by In Xochitl in Cuicatl of Berkeley, refreshments, and discussion. The event is free and open to the public, and donations are gratefully appreciated. The film is 97 minutes long and Not Rated. "Samsara," the third film in the trilogy, will also be screened at OACC Friday September 29th. OACC is wheelchair accessible and easily accessible by BART, AC Transit, and vehicle. Street parking is available, as well as directly beneath the venue in the Pacific Renaissance Plaza Garage at $2 flat rate 5pm-midnight.
