GARLIC IS AS GOOD AS TEN MOTHERS (Les Blank, 1980)

MARCH 25, WEDNESDAY; 7PM
Northwest Building B103

Admission is free, but we welcome contributions at the door. Seating is limited, appropriate refreshments provided.

Introduced by Steve Johnson (Rendezvous). Garlic takes us to visit with the Gilroy Garlic Festival, the early Chez Panisse with Alice Waters, some flower children of the early 1970s, and a fiery gypsy—all celebrants of garlic. It is a wild and savory paean of praise for the Stinking Rose that, in 2004, was elevated to the National Film Registry (a rare honor for a documentary). For more information, see the film's own description and IMDB.
