On Saturday, November 29, A.T.A. Gallery’s OTHER CINEMA presents OC vet Mark Brecke. He brings it all back home with the Bay Area debut of his award-winning documentary, "They Turned Our Desert Into Fire." Mark started this long-term project right here in our gallery with a spoken-word slideshow. After two more W-I-P iterations, he finally returns with the finished feature, on the human disaster in Darfur, Sudan. Brecke brought his pictures of the war back to the US, stirring debate on an Amtrak trip to the US Capitol, there to in fact mount his powerful photographs! Documentation of this geo-political journey frames interviews with Africa experts, politicians, and critics of genocide in this inspiring essay, exquisitely edited by Jason Mitchell (also in person). A portion of the $7 admission goes to Doctors Without Borders.
