Doing the DOXA
The DOXA film festival (a Vancouver-based Documentary Film Festival) did it first satellite festival here on the Sunshine Coast on the October 1st weekend (yup, it was a busy one!) - and the art farm was invited to participate as a community partner for the closing night presentation of Saint Misbehavin', a moving film about the life of 60's artist/activist Wavy Gravy. It was an honor and privilege to help promote this event as well as this film: Wavy Gravy is an inspiring figure in the history of art for social change, and DOXA is a great BC festival doing everything it can to bring the power of the documentary to regions that don't always get it! Of course, we couldn't resist a little art farm homage to Mr. Wavy Gravy himself. So... introducing Nestor the Jester, an old friend of Wavy Gravy himself. The crowd loved him, almost as much as the free art bags he gave them. Thanks DOXA Sunshine Coast for inviting us to take part and for providing the coast with some high quality Documentary cinema for a weekend.
