Short films at the Fourth Annual Serge Gainsbourg Tribute Party • April 13, 2013

Sacramento Serge Gainsbourg Party

Join the Sacramento French Film Festival for all things French-related and Gainsbourg-related on April 13, starting at 7:30 p.m. For the past four years, SFFF throws their annual Serge Gainsbourg tribute party in celebration of the French icon and this year, they’re at it again at Verge Center for the Arts (625 S Street). For only $7, sip on pastis cocktails, which is a French, licorice-flavored liqueur, while listening to live music provided by Afternoon Tea Cup Collection and Peter Petty IS Dirge Gainsbourg! But what the admission really gets you is a seat for screenings of short films inspired by and about Gainsbourg himself. Gainsbourg, who would’ve been 84 years old this year, was a singer/songwriter, director, actor and jack of all trades popular in the ’60s and ’70s. Celebrate his life along with the SFFF, who plans on keeping the night lively with a French pop dance party and music provided by DJs Roger Carpio and Christophe.

I know where I will be eating my next time in town.

As you show with Kupros, you don’t have to be big to be worthwhile or to have an impact. It’s one restaurant out of perhaps a few million in the world – let’s round that down to just one million, so at most 0.0001% of the world’s restuarants – yet it’s clear that it’s worth the visit, and that it sets a standard for other restaurants. Thanks to your review, I’ll remember to check out Kupros next time I’m in Sacramento.

So with Esperanto. At about 2 million speakers out of some 6.8 billion people, or about 0.03%, it’s not enormous. Yet, for those who know and use it, it serves its stated purpose very well as an easy-to-learn yet complete language for people who speak different languages. On top of that, it’s spread around the world, and it’s growing. It may not have caught on – yet, as a universal second language – but it hasn’t failed, either, and it’s currently heading in the direction of success.
