Berkeley Opening Night
Flamenco, the Gypsy-, Jewish-, Arab- and Andalusian-inspired art form, is loved around the world. But what happens when a white boy with Alabama roots falls in love with flamenco and becomes a renowned flamenco guitarist? Gypsy Davy tells the story of David Jones aka David Serva from the perspective of the five women in his life and his children—one of them, the filmmaker, who was abandoned by the musician when she was a year old. With searing honesty and wry humor, Serva’s daughter Rachel unravels a series of tangled lives and forges new possibilities.
You’re in luck if you happen to prefer your movies to be followed by flamenco dancing. Stick around after Gypsy Davy for a distinguished opening night performance by Kerensa DeMars Cuadro with Special Guests. The evening doesn’t end there- cool down with Yelp in the courtyard and lobby of the Roda after the sizzling flamenco piece with spritzers from the Seltzer Sisters, fine chocolates by Coco Délice Fine Chocolates and catering by Bistro Liaison, a Berkeley Gourmet Ghetto favorite.
