New Documentary Film

The documentary film on the life and works of Alan Watts began conceptually as a shared storytelling in which the narrative would support Alan's own telling of his story. However during development it became apparent that most of the story could be told through Alan's own words, particularly when supported by the wealth of original media we had uncovered including video, film, and photos. The entire process took about eighteen months after the initial video restoration, and in the end we were delighted to discover how much of the story was 'in the can' once the puzzle pieces came together. To this we added contemporary footage of Japan and Big Sur, music, animation by Eddie Rosas of Alan as a young man, and a fly-through of woodcut prints by Tom Killion brought to life by special effects artist Bruce Walters. The film was initially titled "Being in the Way" but with the new approach the title was changed to "Why Not Now!", drawn from an LP on the art of contemplation recorded by Alan in 1968.

Choro de Ouro:
Choro de Ouro is the premier Choro group on the Central Coast of California. Choro is a style from Brazil that stated in the later part of the nineteenth century in Rio de Janeiro. It quickly spread throughout Brazil and eventually become a unifying point of pride for the country. Composers like Pixinguinha and Jacob do Bandolim were famous and honored for their contribution to Brazilian culture. Today people are rediscovering this music as it has continued to evolve and grow with a wonderful history and life. It is a passionate music full of virtuosity and excitement as well as expression and the quality of something quaintly beautiful.
