Foovie [Food + Movie]: Man for a Day
La Jolla, C.A.—Celebrating National Women’s History Month, ArtPower at UC San Diego’s last Foovie [Food + Movie] event presents Man for a Day, a documentary by Katarina Peters. Starring gender activist Diane Torr, Man for a Day observes Torr’s workshop in Berlin in which a group of open-minded women came together to discover the secrets of masculinity and explore the theoretical, artistic, and practical aspects of gender identity. The screening takes place on Thursday, March 31, at The Loft at UC San Diego. Dinner is served at 7 p.m.; movie begins at 8 p.m., with a short prescreening ArtTalk with ArtPower Film Curator Rebecca Webb. Tickets are $34 (Food + Movie) and $10 (Movie only) and are available online at boxoffice.ucsd.edu or by calling 858.534.TIXS (8497).
In collaboration with ArtPower’s partner restaurant Zanzibar at The Loft, the dinner menu is thoughtfully curated to match the film. Menu for this showing includes chili lime chicken wings paired with citrus frisée salad; duo of pork medallions, mushroom ragu, and mango salsa served with roasted fingerling potatoes and maple glazed Brussel sprouts; and duo of chocolate truffles. Vegetarian options available.
