Doc of the Bay 

Wednesday, May 15 2013
If you are so excited about documentaries that you always can’t even wait another minute to see one, you’re in luck. Two of the most talked-about documentaries showing during SF Docfest will be previewed Tuesday night at the Roxie. There’s the film 10th Parallel, in which a Brazilian director takes the audience on a journey 300 miles into the Amazon to visit one of those groups of people who’ve never met other folks. Then there’s the Sundance Award-winning The Machine Which Makes Everything Disappear, made by a Georgian (country not state) filmmaker, who traveled her country interviewing young adults from all different walks of life. This preview is the introduction to the DocFest, which runs June 6-23 and celebrates the documentary form. The Fest’ll showcase films on all topics, from Burning Man to Bettie Page, from Pussy Riot to roller disco, from AIDS to architecture.
Tue., May 28, 7 & 9 p.m., 2013

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
