Ugly duckling yearns for playboy son of her father’s employer. Playboy son ignores her. Duckling goes to Paris and comes back a swan. Madness ensues. Thus is the age-old tale of love, longing and missed connections exhibited in 1954’s Sabrina, starring Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart. You may come for the sugar-sweet wit, but you’ll stay for the costume design. Sabrina marks the first collaboration between Hepburn and Givenchy, the designer who developed the picture-perfect elegance of the actress’ wardrobe. The McNay screens this classic as part of its 60th anniversary film series.
While the vast majority of Fotoseptiembre’s wide-ranging offerings land on gallery walls with some sort of curatorial slant in tow, “Somos San Antonio” comes together in a refreshingly organic fashion. Inviting community involvement via submissions from local photographers of all ages and skill levels, the recurring exhibition highlighted vanishing and neglected landmarks with 2013’s nostalgic “Places That Once Were” and this year shifts its focus in a slightly cheerier direction with “San Antonio Faces at Historic Places.” Billed as “the first National Trust Historic Site in the state of Texas,” 19th-century King William landmark Villa Finale once again hosts the juried show, which presents local shutterbugs with the sole requirement of capturing subjects at one of the Alamo City’s many storied locales.
Pushing boundaries for 29 years, Jump-Start Performance Co. is an SA institution rooted in experimentation and collaboration. A former fixture in the Blue Star Arts Complex, the performance art troupe unveils a mysterious new production this week in its new Beacon Hill space.

Datpiff.com is awesome and free, but their most-listened-to mixtapes currently include five from Lil Wayne and three from Wiz Khalifa, so those seeking the newest thing in hip-hop might be better off going outside. Art of War challenges MCs and beat-makers to deliver the goods live in original-track battles. Not all will be good, but some will be great and you probably never would’ve thought to Google any of them. That goes triple for break dancing and graffiti, well represented here but mostly discovered online via YouTube roulette.
“These Words Are Bound,” presented by SATX Music and Die Happy Productions, is a great chance to catch a smattering of up-and-coming local/regional hip-hop talent and give to those in need. The unique event, which will feature hip-hop performances, live art and food trucks in the tranquil setting of Blackgold Emporium and The Little Patch Garden, doubles as a book drive for the Eastside Promise Neighborhood. We are especially excited about peeping SA rapper LaJIT (above), whose brooding and unapologetically personal flows, delivered with razor alacrity, make him one the most exciting emcees in town.
It’s a who’s who among Latinos in the music, film, TV, media, health, fashion and sports industries, as the Alamo City welcomes a host of celebrities to the 2014 Festival People en Español this weekend. Among the stars to join the festivities and treat patrons to musical performances, speaking engagements and special Q&A panels include actresses Génesis Rodríguez (The Last Stand) and Cristela Alonzo (ABC’s Cristela), actor Eduardo Verástegui (Bella), film director Miguel Arteta (Cedar Rapids), Spanish TV icon Don Francisco of Sabado Gigante fame (pictured) and professional boxer Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez. Hosted by CNN’s Alejandra Orra and Azteca TV’s Poncho De Anda, both days begin with a Zumba class taught by local fitness instructor Mario Gómez and the Dále Fitness Team. Exercise will be followed with a concert by Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza on Saturday and Texas-based all-sister group Las Fenix on Sunday. Other performances throughout the weekend include singers Priscila Ángel, Gabriel Coronel and Jaci Velásquez. The festival is free, but if you want to pony up some cash, there is a concert next door at the Lila Cockrell Theatre on Saturday featuring urban pop artists Becky G. and Zendaya that’ll set you back $20-$60.
