22nd Annual Made in Hong Kong Film Festival: Three
Smithsonian's Freer and Sackler Galleries – Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8ylenWmqLQ The latest thriller from action master Johnnie To (Drug War, Exiled, Election, Office) takes place almost entirely in a hospital, where a neurosurgeon (Vicki Zhao) must treat a gangster with a bullet lodged in his head (Wallace Chung). The hospitalized criminal may have incriminating information on the ruthless cop (Louis Koo) who brought him in. The tension builds to a climax in a single-take, operatic gunfight of the kind only To can create. “Three is a master class in how movies can be as unique and infinite as the people who make them” (Dave Ehrlich, Indiewire). (Dir.: Johnnie To, Hong Kong, 2016, 98 min., DCP, Cantonese with English subtitles) This is a part of the 22nd Annual Made in Hong Kong Film Festival. The event is cosponsored by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office.

Melvin A. Goodman | Whistleblower at the CIA
Politics and Prose Bookstore – Now the Director of the National Security Project at the Center of International Policy, Goodman spent nearly thirty years at the CIA. He joined the Agency in the 1960s and worked as an analyst and division chief until leaving in 1986. His resignation was the culmination of years of growing frustration and outrage at the CIA’s corruption, intimidation, and deliberate dissemination of misinformation to officials and the public. The root of these problems, Goodman shows, is the politicization of national security intelligence gathering, which he argues has led to foreign policy crises including the Iran-Contra scandal, infiltration by the Soviet mole Aldrich Ames, and incidents related to the Patriot Act. This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.

Sunday Love: Guti [LiVE] - Mina b2b Alex Eljaiek - GG at Flash
Flash – Sunday, July 23rd • Green Room opens 2PM Guti is a classically trained jazz musician who spent years touring arenas and festivals around the world with one of Argentina’s most well-known rock bands, playing keyboards and piano. His emotive house records, however, are what caught the underground house and techno world by storm when he debuted in 2008; records that double as forays into progressive jazz with hypnotic grooves perfect for dancing. In an industry where most live sets are 60 - 90 minutes, Guti improvises for hours on end. We're thrilled to host the accomplished producer for this edition of Sunday Love. Advance Tickets: ticketfly.com/purchase/event/1507115 No cover before 4PM Guti ( Desolat Music Group | Argentina ) guti-music.com/ soundcloud.com/guti-official Mina b2b Alex Eljaiek ( DC ) soundcloud.com/mina-music soundcloud.com/alexeljaiek Gilléad-Gaari ( FREE.99 | London ) soundcloud.com/free2gs GUTI: Guti isn‘t your run-of-the-mill electronic artist. Rather, it‘s the Argentinian‘s deep-rooted love of jazz and rock that form the foundations of his musical craft. Although today he‘s best known for his work alongside Desolat, Defected and his own Rompecorazones imprint, there was a time when he was revered as the keyboard player in Jo´venes Pordioseros, a Buenos Aires-born band that enjoyed huge commercial success both home and abroad. Many in his position would have been content to live out the life of a rock star, but Guti harboured a bur- ning desire to explore new paths. Around 2007, he started experimenting with making house and techno, beginning a journey that would transform him into an established force on the global dance scene. Famously, it was Loco Dice and Desolat that gave Guti his big break. After licensing one of Guti‘s tracks for his NRK mix The Lab 01, the German DJ requested he send him some more music. All of what Guti sent Dice loved, and in 2008 Guti was invited to Europe to join team Desolat (tINI, Livio & Roby, Martin Buttrich). Without a moment‘s hesitation, he packed his bags and dived head- rst into his new life, playing live and supporting Dice at clubs and festivals the world over. He had been making house and techno for barely 12 months. In 2008 he settled in Berlin, where he shared a at with a young Seth Troxler and Ryan Crosson. Spending his weekends gigging hard and partying harder, Guti would use the week to work tirelessly at his production skills. It was here that he developed his passion for making music alongside others, putting out EPs with Dubshape (Crosstown Rebels), Ryan Crosson (Supplement Facts) and Shaun Reeves (Wolf + Lamb). From these sprang up Guti‘s rst hit records—“You‘ve Got Me,“ „Every Cow Has A Bird,“—catapulting him further onto the world stage. With his pro le steadily on the rise, he left for Du¨sseldorf to immerse himself further in the world of Desolat. The Du¨sseldorf years were the building blocks of Guti‘s artistry. His Desolat debut—the six-tracker Las Cosas Que No Se Tocan—dropped in 2009, followed in 2011 by his rst solo full-length, Patio de Juegos. The latter, put together in partnership with Loco Dice, offered the rst solid glimpse of Guti the musician; of Guti outside of the club realm. Something else changed, too. From that moment forward, Guti was no longer viewed as just a Desolat artist, but as a performer in his own right. His booking schedule blew up, including sets at near-on every party in Ibiza across the 2012 season. Around the same time, he put out a spate of high-pro le records on Saved, Crosstown Rebels and Carl Cox‘s Intec Digital. In 2013, he played even more shows on the White Isle, buoyed by his summer smash for Defected offshoot DFTD, „Hope.“ Of cially his second release for the UK label, it would cement a relationship that would set Guti up for the next stage in his career. That same year, 2013, Guti upped and moved to Barcelona, in search of warmer weather, a more relaxed vibe and a greater volume of Spanish speakers. Once settled, he set about building his dream recording studio, installing a raft of analogue synths, drum machines and, the pie`ce de re´sistance, a grand piano. It was here, sat at his piano looking out across Barcelona‘s picturesque skyline, that Guti set about sketching the ideas for Rompecorazones, his second, jazz-infused album. Backed by Defected, Guti ew over some of Buenos Aires‘ most talented session musicians, jamming and writing day and night until the LP was approaching completion. Knowing the album wasn‘t right for Desolat, he set up his own label, also called Rompecorazones, and released it that way. In May 2014, it hit the shelves to considerable critical acclaim. More than just an album, though, Rompecorazones was a statement of intent. Channelling that same restless energy that brought him to electronic music in 2006, Guti was keen to reconnect with his music-playing roots, away from the restraints and con nes of the four-to- the- oor pulse. The album was, in many ways, a bridge between the old Guti and the new, a gateway through which to engaged with this new chapter in his career. From here on in, the label will exclusively host Guti‘s home-listening excursions, whether they be forthcoming collaborations alongside Francesco Tristano and world-renowned French pianist Julien Quentin, or solo work. He wants to make music for other contexts, to widen the scope of possibilities for the future. That said, fans of his club tracks have nothing to fear: Guti hasn‘t lost sight of the dance oor. Eight years on from his debut performance at Sunday Adventure Club in Berlin, he remains as passionate about rocking crowds as ever. His exploration of new sounds and textures will breathe new life into his club output, furthering his reputation as one of dance music‘s most likeable, danceable and dynamic performers.
