Toni Tabora-Roberts interviews Curtis Choy about his film "Manilatown is in the Heart".  A favorite at the DisOrient film festival in April, the film is a tribute to late poet and activist Al Robles. 

In the 1970s, Robles was an activist involved in the San Francisco I-Hotel struggle, a fight which is now burned into Filipino-American civil rights history.

After a decade-long protest, many low-income elderly Manong were evicted, effectively dismantling the last enclave of downtown San Francisco's historic Manilatown community.

"Manilatown is in the Heart"will show for one night only in Portland on Friday, June 26th at the Hollywood Theater.

Viva Voce play live on Drinking From Puddles !!
Wednesday, June 24th - 8pm-11pm

"At this spring's SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas, Viva Voce frontman Kevin Robinson surveyed the dense crowd before him with a smirk on his face. "Are y'all blogging this (show)?" he asked, noting the army of texters staring into their devices as the band took a break between songs. "It's like you're guests in my kitchen and I'm the chef: I just want you to eat the food!" This old-school passion for the music, and nothing but, touches every aspect of the fourth full-length album from the husband-and-wife team of Robinson and singer/guitarist Anita Robinson.

King Lear and a Casting Director

 Portland Actors Ensemble is one of the oldest Shakespeare in the Parks groups in the country.  For 40 years, they've offered free Shakespeare every summer and have trained countless young actors in performing the bard's plays. Hear more about it on Stage and Studio.  Also check out the interview with Casting Director Lana Veenker. She's cast hundreds of Portland actors in the current cable show "Leverage" and the Harrison Ford movie "The Crowley Project." She's supporting Senate Bill 621 which would make more tax incentives for film and TV producers. Hear how it could make Oregon millions of dollars.

Check out the interview
