Join HRC San Antonio for a screening of God Loves Uganda. Event will include: complimentary popcorn and HRC goodie bag. God Loves Uganda is a powerful exploration of the evangelical campaign to change African culture with values from America's fundamental Christian right. The film explores the role of the American evangelical movement in Uganda, where American missionaries have been credited with both creating schools and hospitals and promoting dangerous religious bigotry. The film follows evangelical leaders in America and Uganda along with politicians and missionaries as they attempt the radical task of eliminating sexual sin and converting Ugandans to fundamentalist Christianity. As an American influenced bill to make homosexuality punishable by death wins widespread support, tension in Uganda mounts and an atmosphere of murderous hatred takes hold. The film reveals the conflicting motives of faith and greed, ecstasy and egotism, among Ugandan ministers, American evangelical leaders and the foot soldiers of a theology that sees Uganda as a test case, ground zero in a battle not for millions, but billions of souls. With your movie admission, you will receive a one year HRC membership and get to be a part of the fight for equality.
That director Ishiro Honda had Katsumi Tezuka don that suffocating radioactive-reptile suit to stomp a scale-model of Tokyo in 1954’s Gojira rather than, say, Washington, D.C., might indicate something about Nihonjinron versus Toby Keith’s boot in yer ass, but we’ve come to praise Godzilla, not to write an ill-informed undergrad thesis about him/her. Subsequent films saw history’s most kickass nuclear-holocaust metaphor save mankind from such varied threats as Mechagodzilla, Godzillasaurus and Space Godzilla, but 1985’s The Return of Godzilla is a relapse into malevolence that’s never been released on DVD in the US. In anticipation of yet another reboot to be released next month, Cult Movie TV Danger Zone is screening Return (aka Godzilla 1985). Tickets, which must be purchased online, are $2—less than they would’ve cost 20 years ago. Plus it’s the Japanese version with English subtitles, so it counts as an artsy foreign film.
We are all downstream. This eloquent film discusses the connection between the environment and human health. It follows an ecologist during one year as she travels across North America, working to break the silence about cancer and its environmental links.

Screw that cowardly Game of Thrones crap, “King of the Surf Guitar” Dick Dale crowned himself the honest way: He straight-up invented that shit. Incorporating Middle Eastern scales into R&B and playing his flipped-over, reverse-stringed guitar with inhuman speed, Dale recreated the soundtrack he heard riding the waves, first with 1961’s “Let’s Go Tripping” (so early in rock ‘n’ roll history nobody thought to freak out over the title) and most famously with “Miserlou,” the song so entwined in Pulp Fiction’s DNA Tarantino should’ve given him a co-writing credit. In the Age of Heroes (before modern medicine), His Highness would’ve long since passed into legend, but fortunately the 76-year-old has bested cancer twice so he may continue brandishing his battle ax. Loyal local followers King Pelican—whose latest offering The Good, the Bad and the Reverb is well worth a listen—will test the waters first.
Inkwell Studio unveils works by local artists Gilbert Duran, Katherine Rogers, Cindy Palmer, Zag Memar and Roma Sandoval at a Fiesta-inspired reception with performances by flamenco dancer Jackie Rodriguez-Navar and guitarist Steve Arispe, wine, hors d’oeuvres and photography by Daniela ZaaZaa Riojas.

Save for Fashion Week San Antonio and Una Noche en la Gloria’s eccentric Runway en la Calle (which moves this year to coincide with Diez y Seis de Septiembre celebrations), solid fashion shows are pretty scarce in these parts, which makes the official Fiesta event The Cutting Edge all the more enticing. Launched in 1980 and presented by University of the Incarnate Word Fashion Management students, the runway show represents a year of work—including sketching, pattern-making, fittings and critiques. Students handle every aspect of show production, from the booking of models to the lighting design. Highlighting six outfits from each young designer’s collection, The Cutting Edge firstly functions as a showcase of emerging talent but also offers an optional luncheon ($75), a silent auction and a raffle for vacation packages ($50).
At the time of her death in 1995, 23-year-old Grammy-winner Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was at the peak of her success. She had become the first female artist to achieve gold status with a Tejano album, her song “Fotos y Recuerdos” was No. 4 on Billboard’s Latin chart and she was poised to impress the English-speaking world with the crossover album Dreaming of You. In the media blitz surrounding her murder, The New York Times wrote, “With her pouting smile, suggestive clothing and theatrical command of a microphone, Selena was often described as the Madonna of the Mexican-American world and was an idol and heartthrob on both sides of the border.” Two weeks later, George W. Bush, then governor of Texas, declared her birthday (April 16) “Selena Day.” Rising to the bittersweet occasion of what would’ve been her 43rd birthday, Hi-Tones turns its weekly Bring Your Own Vinyl series into a tribute to the undisputed Queen of Tejano. Beyond the records fans bring to play, DJ Adlf will fill in the gaps of an inspiring career that started with Selena y Los Dinos—a relentlessly touring family band whose first recording was a Spanish-language version of Rick James’ funk classic “Super Freak.”
