The Can 
Young guy walking down the street, drinking soda. He throws the empty can in the box and misses. After that, the bank begins to pursue him. Alexey Protsenko | 2016 | 3 mins. | Russian Federation

FIFO 
First in first out (FIFO) is a shelving technique used in supermarkets. Stephan must place the freshest products behind the oldest ones. Products nearing their sell-by date must be destroyed. When going to the bins in the basement, Stephan will have to face those who could still benefit from them, but who are excluded by the system. He will also have to confront who he was before getting a job. Sacha Ferbus | 2017 | 12 min. | Belgium

Fish 
An old couple are living in an apartment, the man is sleeping and the woman is doing housework. The lady wants to change the fish tank’s water but it slips out of her hand and falls on the ground. They've ran out of water and there’s no water for the fish. But with the help of the man they find water for it. Saman Hosseinpuor | 2016 | 4 mins. | Islamic Republic of Iran

Forgotten but not Gone: The Pacific Fisher
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, populations of the fisher (Pekania pennanti)—a forest-dwelling member of the weasel and otter family—were in steep decline across much of its native range of northern North America. Both fur trapping and habitat loss from logging and urbanization took a heavy toll. However, once trapping bans and timber harvest restrictions were put in place, the species rebounded in many regions. Unfortunately, that trend hasn’t carried over to the West Coast of the U.S., where an isolated population of fishers, known as the Pacific fisher, continues to struggle. Scientists estimate that only 4,000 Pacific fishers remain, with just 300 left in California’s Sierra Nevada Range. These individuals now face a new and rising threat: illegal marijuana grow sites that are cropping up on public lands. Growers use poisons to protect their plants from rodents, and these chemicals are indiscriminate killers. Morgan Heim, Day's Edge Productions, BioGraphic | 2017 | 8 min. | USA

L'estoc 
"Problems can also be opportunities" Jordi Mayals. We discovered L'estoc on a back street of Barcelona and were so impressed with the philosophy and people behind the project that we decided to spend a few days learning about the work so we could share the story of L'estoc with everybody else. Bessie Byrne | 2017 | 9 min. | Australia, Spain

Sheltered in Oak
An Iranian squirrel's life in oak trees of the Ilam Province's oak forest, with many dangers posed by fellow forest inhabitants and humans. Majid Mohammaddoust | 2017 | 55 min. | Islamic Republic of Iran 

Turtle on a Fence Post
Former Vice President and climate advocate Al Gore takes us behind the scenes of the climate change denial movement and points to signs that we’re moving towards a clean energy economy. Gabriel Diamond | 2017 | 4 min. | USA

Time 
One tree makes millions of matches, but when the time comes, only one match would be enough to burn millions of trees. Time is more powerfull than you. Mahdi Mousavi Azad | 2017 | 2 min. | Islamic Republic of Iran

Vanishing Coral
"Vanishing Coral" reveals the devastating effects of warming oceans and bleaching events within the “coral triangle” of southeast Asia, and powerfully illustrates what some dedicated scientists and environmental activists are doing to save these unique coral populations. 

"Vanishing Coral" comes at a pivotal moment, when coral reef populations are declining world-wide. Mass coral bleaching events due to elevated ocean temperatures occurred in 1998, 2002 and 2006, and coral bleaching is now expected to become an annual occurrence. The environmental costs are staggering: in 2016, one-third of the Great Barrier Reef along the eastern coast of Australia was decimated by a warm spell attributed to climate change.
Coral reefs in the Florida Keys have declined by 80% over the past three decades. Scientists warn that all Caribbean coral could disappear in the next 20 years. Considered “the canary in the coal mine” of global warming, coral reefs are the most sensitive and diverse of all marine ecosystems. The film follows the work of marine biologist and coral expert Dr. Phil Dustan, who presents powerful insights and direct, visual evidence of the year-by-year dramatic decline in the coral triangle of southeast Asia, changes which are directly tied to the burning of fossil fuels, pollution and other human behaviors. 
Photographed aboard the 100 year-old sailing vessel “Mir”, a floating headquarters for a young, international group of environmental activists, "Vanishing Coral" presents the insights and research of scientists and naturalists as they work with local Indonesian communities to protect the coral reefs."Vanishing Coral" offers an ecological alarm bell to the world, with specific suggestions on how viewers themselves can get involved and take action.  Stephen Olsson | 2017 | 26 min. | USA

12/12/2018 - 10th Annual Production of Studio 4 Dance Theater’s “The Nutcracker,” December 13-15, 2018 at
Angels Camp, CA...Studio 4 Dance Theater will present the tenth annual production of the holiday classic “The Nutcracker” ballet, December 13-15, 2018 at the Bret Harte Theater in Angels Camp. The full-length, professional-quality ballet is the highlight of the local holiday season, with return audiences and sold-out performances every year. Reserved seats are available for lower-priced advance purchase beginning November 8 at www.studio4dancetheater.com.


After several years of setting the story in an orphanage, Artistic Director Tammie Lee brings it back this year to the Stahlbaum home in Germany, where Clara and her mischievous brother Fritz eagerly anticipate the family’s annual Christmas party. At the party, Godfather Drosselmeyer gives Clara a very special Nutcracker as a gift, and a magical adventure begins.

This year’s “Nutcracker” features 64 dancers of all ages. Madison Gonzalez will portray Clara, with Gabriel Moes as her Nutcracker Prince. Leah Cottrell will dance the role of the Mouse Queen, Jillian Buteau will be the Snow Queen, and Madison Pelland will be the Dew Drop Fairy. Ruby Eustis-Smith and Damian Homer-Golz will perform together as the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier, and Tim Smith will return as Godfather Drosselmeyer.

“It’s hard to believe that we are celebrating ten years of this production,” said Tammie Lee. “This community has been wonderfully supportive of the arts and Studio 4 Dance Theater. We are proud to have this opportunity each year to showcase the developing talents and skills of our amazing dancers. Their hard work and dedication are inspirational for our audiences… and for me. I'm extremely blessed to be the artistic director of Studio 4 Dance Theater!"

“The Nutcracker” is appropriate for all ages, and is just about two hours long including an intermission with treats, warm beverages, and chances to win an irresistible array of nearly 40 raffle baskets. As always, there will be a “Meet and Greet” for photos with the Sugar Plum Fairy and other cast members immediately following the Saturday matinee.

Many local businesses and individuals have supported Studio 4 Dance Theater by sponsoring the production, donating raffle prizes, and advertising in the printed program. Major sponsors this year include 1st Impressions Dentistry, John Lux, Miata Chevrolet, Murphys Pourhouse, Orvis Enterprises, Safari Smiles Dental, San Andreas Mini Storage, Timothy J. O'Connor DDS, Vino Metate, and Joe Thorton Logging.

10/27/2018 - Artist Reception for Staria Stine on October 27th at nd&x,
Murphys, CA...The nd&x is so pleased to be hosting another fresh innovative solo show featuring the works of super talented local artist Staria Stine. Staria is driven by her curiosity and passion for the natural environment and her interest in our complex relationship with Nature both presently, as well as over the course of human history is evident in her latest endeavor. In this body of work Staria is focusing on the topic of genetically modified organics.


(GMOs) and how they have been incorporated into our contemporary applications. Genetica modification is a forced process, and perhaps one that the natural world might inevitably reject, potentially leading us down the road to monoculture systems and that of collapse. Therefore, this raises the question of our ethical responsibilities, pointing to our future societal costs. Working closely with plants and the complex information systems found within their structures, this body of work calls attention to the precise, delicate and highly-informed design of edible plants and other organics.

Please come to the opening to meet Staria and experience the beautiful, colorful, thought provoking applications all together in the same space for maximum impact of this gorgeous body of work.

This is our 5th show of 2018. Please don’t miss it. Wine & nibbles provided.

Hope to see you there!

Cheers and of course...Peace,

Jill & Linda
