Sonoma Film Institute Presents, SOUL ON A STRING

  • Ives 101

Zhang Yang (Shower, Paths of the Soul) adapts two novels by Tibetan writer Tashi Dawa for this stunning mystical epic about a killer on the run who is entrusted with a sacred mission. After discovering a sacred stone in the mouth of a deer, Taibei, a lone Tibetan cowboy, embarks on a spiritual quest: to bring it back to a holy mountain. On the way, he encounters a passionate woman, a mute with psychic powers, and two vengeful brothers. With gorgeous, sweeping cinematography of Tibet’s majestic steppes and sprawling deserts, this unconventional Asian Western pairs swordfights with the Buddhist philosophy of letting go. “Shot in some of the most spectacular landscapes on earth, the film is anything but a straightforward document of Tibetan folklore and religion. It's an epic, magical, and visually stunning tale of karmic returns, of hate and love, and it draws its strength from the eternal power of timeless stories.” - Giovanna Fulvi, TIFF (2016, 142 min., in Tibetan w/English subtitles) For more information about the Sonoma Film Institute, go to http://www.sonoma.edu/sfi/schedule/

Faces of SSU Reception

  • The HUB

Our vision is that our community would consist of people talking to others, sharing their experiences, and looking out for each other. That we would see through these conversations and experiences that we all are people with good and challenging experiences, that we all have good and bad days, and that we are more than how we look, or sound, or appear to others. We are interconnected through SSU.  We are so much more than just faces in a crowd.  We are Seawolves. Join us as we unveil this year’s Faces of SSU!

One Love Relationship Violence Escalation Workshop

Student led Movie and discussion on healthy and unhealthy relationships. Sponsored by Title IX and Title IX Interns.

The One Love Foundation was created in 2010 to honor the memory of Yeardley Love, a University of Virginia senior who was beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend just weeks short of graduation. Prior to that day, Yeardley’s friends and family had no sense she was in danger.  In the months that followed, they were stunned to learn that relationship violence is something that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men in the US will experience in his/her lifetime.  Research also shows that young women ages 16-24 are 3x greater risk and have limited awareness of this fact.  One Love’s focus today is changing these statistics by sparking conversations in schools and communities around the country.

One Love works to give others the information that Yeardley and her friends and family didn’t have about what unhealthy and potentially dangerous relationship behaviors look like, empowering them to help themselves and their friends.  To do this, One Love focuses on building emotionally-engaging, powerful content and tools that meet people where they are, show them the relevance of this issue in their own lives, and inspire them to join a movement for change.

A Talk with Analilia Gonzaga

  • Sonoma Valley Room

A motivational conversation with a former SRJC undocu-student who continued onto graduate school overcoming legal and financial struggles and obtained an M.A in Sociology.

Brief bio for Analilia- I came to the United States when I was 13 years old. I am the first one of my family to get a higher education. I graduated from Healdsburg High School when I turned 17 years old then went to SRJC and got my AA in Sociology in 2001. Being an undocumented student, transferring to an university was only a dream. Meeting a counselor at the SRJC helped me accomplish that dream and transferred to Sacramento State University and graduated in 2003 with a BA in sociology and MD in sociology in 2007. Being afraid of being undocumented, I did not ever think of applying for scholarships or any financial help, so I worked 3 jobs and paid my education. I am still undocumented because I was 3 months away from the cut off date for DACA eligibility. I can not develop my career but I am working my way to take advantage of the AB 1159 so, I went back to college to get certified as a Drug and Alcohol counselor and I hope to be able to work in that field with my Sociology experience. This event is part of Undocu Week!
