Bong Joon Ho Honored As Outstanding Director of the Year


“Funny, poignant and thrilling, the film has been embraced around the world, and the Santa Barbara International Film Festival is ecstatic to continue to shine the light on one of the best filmmakers there is and his remarkable oeuvre.” The SBIFF Outstanding Director of the Year Award, sponsored by The Hollywood Reporter, was presented Thursday evening at the historic Arlington Theatre. Bong is only the fourth solo recipient of the Outstanding Director of the Year Award in SBIFF’s 35-year history. Previous SBIFF Director of the Year honorees include Alfonso Cuaron, Yorgos Lanthimos, Spike Lee, Adam McKay, Pawel Pawlikowski, Christopher Nolan, Greta Gerwig, Guillermo del Toro, Jordan Peele, Paul Thomas Anderson, Damien Chazelle, Ava Duverney, Barry Jenkins, Kenneth Lonergan, Denis Villeneuve, Lenny Abrahamson, Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Tom McCarthy, George Miller, Richard Linklater, Bennett Miller, Laura Poitras, Morten Tyldum, David O. Russell, Kathryn Bigelow, and Danny Boyle.

YNAMIC CULTURAL NARRATIVES BY AUTEUR BONG JOON HO have garnered international recognition and the SBIFF honor of Director of the Year for his body of work and the 2019 film Parasite. “It is not as if I write the script to break their (audience) expectations… I think it just happens because I have a weird personality,” commented Bong Joon Ho during a SBIFF Cinema Society interview with Roger Durling. Bong Joon Ho, 50, is a South Korean director and screen writer for the 2019 movie Parasite, which received the Palm de Ore at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, Best Foreign Language Film at the 2020 Golden Globes, and six Academy Award Nominations for the upcoming 2020 Awards. On Sunday night, it became the first nonEnglish-language film ever awarded the best ensemble SAG Award by America’s largest union of actors, SAG-AFTRA. The dark comic thriller is also a box office hit, earning over $148 million world wide and creating dozens of memes. He is also known for his films Okja, 2017; Snowpiercer, 2013; and Memories of Murder, 2003. “Director Bong and his film Parasite transcend every category and genre,” festival director Roger Durling said in a statement.

Inclusivity Lights Up Our Film Festival


EACHING DIVERSITY BY EXAMPLE IS NOT ALWAYS EASY and rarely is its illustration a public affair which is fun, interesting, and exciting. Like a beacon, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival has enthusiastically welcomed a diverse selection of films, actors, producers, directors, and honorees, for their 35th annual Festival. Sometimes, you just have to pat yourself on the back. This film festival season, we suggest that it is the Santa Barbara International Film Festival board and staff that needs to take a bow, Roger Durling at its helm, especially. Local, state, national, and international festival goers have been enjoying the opportunity to experience a truly inclusive festival and it has been refreshing and inspiring to walk shoulder to shoulder with SBIFF filmmakers, festival goers, and honorees and see a truly representative array

of some of the best performances and work of the year. By comparison, BAFTA offered no nominations for people of color and the Oscars a very poor representation in their nominees. The Academy Awards are often upstaged in Santa Barbara, where movie history and our film festival recognizes and honors the best and brightest in the movie industry. This year inclusivity is the bling that outshines the lackluster Academy who makes gold figures called Oscar. Just take a look at the SBIFF poster. It’s a nod to Santa Barbara’s Chromatic Gate, a creation by “degenerate” Bauhaus artist Herbert Bayer. It is embraced by some viewers as a reflection of the metaphorical spectrum of the rainbow of inclusion. Every area of the festival feels as if representation and inclusivity were considered. This year’s Film Festival lineup feels and looks like our community and the America

we live in. We believe that inclusivity is the intentional recognition of all the players on the field and it is precious. A few of the Festival’s starring flourishes we’d like to highlight are: a selection process bringing a diverse range of honorees and films; the advertising campaign; multi-age programming; and the treatment of the crowd. An important and not easy to learn lesson is that the people who create are just as inspirational as what they created. Communities are complex, diverse, and filled with smaller neighborhoods representing an amazing array of micro cultures that are in perpetual need of recognition and connection. SBIFF has taken steps to honor them. And, SBIFF has responded to the #metoo call. This responsiveness by one of Santa Barbara’s largest and highest profile events is noteworthy and our community should be proud of their efforts to create a model for us, the world, and the Academy of Motion Pictures. – By Mark Whitehurst and Kerry Methner / VOICE

HOSE OF YOU WHO READ VOICE Magazine are already aware that the Santa Barbara’s Waterfront Department has a new director. Mike Wiltshire comes to the Waterfront Department from the City’s Facilities and Energy Division where he served as Manager, overseeing maintenance and upgrades for public buildings that house community services such as police, fire, and parks and recreation. As Waterfront Director, Wiltshire will administer all waterfront operations including the Harbor and Stearns Wharf with a staff of 47 employees and a $16 million dollar operating budget. “I take this opportunity seriously and look forward Mike Wiltshire to working with the great staff and all those who use our Waterfront for business and recreation,” Wiltshire shared with VOICE Magazine. I hope to meet Mike soon, and spend some time with him so I can pass all the latest news at the harbor on to you in this column. Now is the time for some seriously shameless bragging! I am so proud to announce to you that the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum’s President of the Board of Directors and Santa Barbara City College Marine Diving Technology Professor Emeritus, Don Barthelmess has been elected by the Academy of Underwater Arts & Sciences (AUAS) to receive the prestigious NOGI Award for Sports and Education. AUAS is an international, multi-disciplinary, non-profit organization dedicated to recognizing pioneers and leaders who have had global impact on exploration, enjoyment, safety, and preservation of the underwater world. The organization’s core mission is the preservation of the sea for future generations. Barthelmess is a long standing staple of the global diving community and has been diving professionally for 40 years, trained commercial Don Barthelmess and recreational divers, and has mentored hundreds of divers who have been able to make diving a career. He was chairman of the Marine Technology Department of SBCC for a decade and as a tenured Professor for 30 years at City College, Barthelmess shaped the attitudes of his students, sharing his philosophy of safety and teamwork through hands-on training in realistic experiences. The graduates of the program have pursued multiple career paths in marine and underwater technology, working above and below the water using many types of sophisticated data collection instruments and the latest technology in life-supporting equipment. Few outside of our area know it, but Santa Barbara is the undisputed birthplace of the commercial diving industry. Throughout the 1960s, equipment, technology, and techniques were invented right here on the South Coast that allowed divers to travel to depths never before imagined. The boom (sparked by the development of the world’s first oceanic, offshore oil-drilling operations in Summerland and peopled by risk-taking abalone divers) gave rise to an entirely new way of working in the deepest, darkest bowels of the ocean with myriad of advanced diving technology. Our world increasingly relies upon the resources and knowledge gained from the ocean and marine NOGI Award environment and SBCC offers one of the premiere training courses for the modern diving industry, thanks to the efforts of this year’s AUAS Sports and Education honoree, Don Barthelmess. With this honor, Barthelmess will join a stellar group of Santa Barbara divers such as Ernie Brooks, Bob Kirby, Bev Morgan, Bob Kirby, Bob Evans, Ed Stetson, Lad Handelman, Hillary Hauser, Leslie Leaney, Jean-Michel Cousteau, and several others, whose contributions to diving have been recognized by the NOGI Award. There are also several international recipients from countries such as France, Austria, Australia, UK, and others, signifying the stature and significance of the Award. Or as famed Hollywood director James Cameron put it upon receiving the honor, “Being a recipient of a NOGI is the underwater equivalent of winning an Oscar, except a lot harder.” Congratulations, Don!

Kabaretti rings in the New Year with a California premiere Santa Barbara Symphony


Review by Daniel Kepl / VOICE

Photos by David Bazemore

Outstanding Performer of the Year – Adam Driver

CinemaVanguard Award – Laura Dern


By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE

CTOR LAURA DERN’S REMARKABLE AND DIVERSIFIED CAREER was in focus on Tuesday evening when The Santa Barbara International Film Festival presented her with The Cinema Vanguard Award. Recognizing actors who have forged their own path, taking artistic risks and making a significant and unique contributions to film, The Vanguard Award evening was moderated by Deadline’s Awards Editor-in-Chief Film Critic Pete Hammond. Clips from various films representing her lengthy career, including the films Citizen Ruth, Blue Velvet, Wild Angels, Wild, 99 Homes, Marriage Story, and Little Women were projected on the big screen at the Arlington Theater. After her recent wins as best actress in a supporting role in both the 2020 Golden Globes and Honoree Laura Dern the Screen Actors Guild award ceremonies, Dern has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her most recent work in Marriage Story by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Born in Los Angeles a child of Hollywood, the daughter of actors Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd, Dern grew up on the movie sets. Her first remembered role was at the age of seven in the Martin Scorsese directed film, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore. “I played the ‘Girl Eating Ice Cream Cone.’” Dern discovered in the multiple takes, “I had to keep eating ice cream cones!” in her place between the stars who were “two people doing something I didn’t understand!” Working with Scorsese left a deep impression, however, and feeling a part of a community of actors seemed natural. Dern’s own decision to embrace a career as an actor occurred on the set of Blue Velvet, directed by David Lynch, the recipient of the Academy’s 2019 Honorary Award for his diverse and often controversial work in film. “David has been my guiding light and the greatest influence of my career,” Dern related. “It was during the filming of Blue Velvet that I knew this was where I belonged. His work and multiple talents have been a huge influence in my choice of roles.” Dern related that as a younger actor she was caught up in the angst of it all, chasing the idea of being an ‘artist’ instead of realizing the privilege of doing what she loved and the privilege of telling stories, and working with amazing storytellers. Today she feels much differently, noting, “I’m having so much fun; it’s amazing!” Dern feels that it is not overstated or arrogant to talk about the potential of the healing through art, sharing, “We have a very broken home and we’re all trying to figure it out. To have fierce and radical storytellers in film and television and documentaries is the work. We’re so blessed. So to have anything to do with that is just radical good fortune.” At the end of the evening to a standing room crowd, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos presented Dern with the 2020 Cinema Vanguard Award after which Dern spoke briefly thanking the SBIFF for the honor and the City of Santa Barbara for the warm and gracious welcome.

HE ACCOMPLISHED ADAM DRIVER carried the night in style on Friday, January 17th, for the Outstanding Performers of the Year Award tribute. Actress Scarlett Johansson was also slated to appear, but could not make it due to a sudden illness. Both were leads in Noah Baumbach’s well-received Marriage Story, a somewhat auto-biographical narrative film, showing the ups and downs Honoree Adam Driver with Writer of a contemporary failing marriage. Driver provided glimpses and Moderator Anne Thompson of the behind the scenes work of film acting, during the evening of glamour and insight sponsored by Belvedere. Driver sat down with always adept film industry writer Anne Thompson for an in-depth conversation. Beginning montage of film clips included scenes from Marriage Story and some of Driver’s previous films including Baumbach’s Francis Ha, Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman, and the newer Star Wars installments. Driver’s beginnings included service in the U.S. Marine Corp and interestingly, Driver founded a non-profit in 2008 called Arts in the Armed Forces which reaches out to a wide variety of service members, with a special focus on theatre. He also spoke about his ongoing collaborations with director-writer Noah Baumbach, mentioning the method of making movies with him. “It was on our first day of working together and we clicked right away...Noah’s scripts are very to the letter and feel very much like theatre to me. He sets different boundaries than other directors, and for him, the lines are the lines. ‘Don’t change them. But - how you interpret them is up for grabs,’” he shared. He also revealed how being in the Marines prepared him for an acting career. “It’s the best acting training...the structure is exactly the same. I mean, the end result is much different, and in one you’re pretending (film and theatre) and in the other, the stakes are life and death, in the Marines, they actually are,” he concluded. Following the interview, Driver was given the gleaming trophy. “Acting to me is many many things,” he related. “You know, it’s a craft. It’s a political act, and it’s a service. I think that acting is a service industry. I’m there in service of the director, the actors, and the crew, and the story overall, which is more important. I believe in the potential effect of collaboration. And I think movies, and films, and theatre can lead people out of the darkness. Thank you so, so much to the Film Festival.” Honoree Adam Driver

Lupita Nyong’o Receives Montecito Award


Honoree Lupita Nyong’o

By Robert F. Adams, Special to VOICE

ECEIVING AN ACADEMY AWARD FOR HER FIRST PERFORMANCE, actor Lupita Nyong’o has emerged as an award winning, dynamic performer, and a New York Times best selling author. The Santa Barbara International Film Festival, presented by UGG, awarded Nyong’o the prestigious Montecito Award this week, with Jordan Peele conferring the award. “The creative intimacy that Jordan offered me on Us is the reason I was able to do the work I did. I am just so grateful to have had that opportunity. The roles I’ve played so far have only stretched me more and more. My well is full because of them. I hope that this still remains somewhat a beginning, and that I can carry on making work that matters...There’s something really important about being able to tell important stories. So what I really hope as I move forward is that I can continue to tell important stories that not only bring fancy Honoree Lupita Nyong’o and presenter awards like this one, but also shift the cultural narrative...I hope I continue to make you proud, and just to Filmmaker Jordan Peele make the world a more colorful place,” stated Nyong’o when accepting her award. Nyong’o made her feature debut in Steve McQueen’s Academy Award®-winning film 12 Years a Slave, which she received the Academy Award® in the category of Best Supporting Actress as well as multiple accolades including the Screen Actors Guild Award, the Critics’ Choice Award, the Independent Spirit Award, and the NAACP Award. She has also starred in critically acclaimed films such as Marvel’s Oscar®-nominated Black Panther and J.J.

Nyong’o is set to produce and star in Americanah, Danai Gurira’s adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s novel, which will air as an HBO Max limited series. “I went to Yale with no craft, and that’s where I gained my craft. I wanted to go to drama school because I wanted to deeply understand my instrument. I wanted to understand my strengths and to identify my weaknesses in such a way that I can work on all those weaknesses,” responded Nyong’o to interviewer Dave Karger’s questions about joining the 12 Years a Slave cast right out of drama school. Presenting the Montecito Award was Academy Award winner Jordan Peele, who brought laughter and thoughtful emotions to the audience. “ Nyong’o gave me the dream role of my life as director of her and her genius…She was asking questions that I didn’t know the answer to yet. All of a sudden, I realized the type of depth of performer she is. She is the truest professional that I have ever met...she pushed me to this incredible different level,” enthused Peele. The Montecito Award is named after one of the most beautiful and stylish areas in Santa Barbara.

HERE IS A NEW INDIAN RESTAURANT in Santa Barbara named Apna Indian, located at 718 State St., and it’s flavors are as ancient as the mother-country of the brothers who own it. Owners Kuldeep Singh and Ninder Josan, along with brother and line cook Gopi Josan, have spent their lives in restaurants, from the time they were little boys assisting in the family business in Sidhupur, Punjab, until they moved to Santa Barbara, and their experience is reflected in the superb, succulent dishes which taste of authentic Indian, with a dash of California originality. Stopping by to do this interview on Hanukkah, I was delighted when they served Indian Latkes — potato pancakes! “Most Indian food in America is not so Indian. Here, you get what you would eat in India, but with our own tweak on it. A lot of restaurants make everything bland and mild, because they think Americans don’t want spicy. What I have experienced here is opposite — they do want spices in the food— they want spices and flavor, and we have had a really good response from public,” shared Singh. Butter Chicken and Saag (creamed spinach) are their most popular dishes. “We went with the basic stuff, and customers like this casual atmosphere, too. We serve wine and beer, and focus on beer: it’s better with Indian: Flying Horse. More Lagers. Taj Mahal.” On the wall behind the counter, a sign reads, “Always be faithful to quality.” When I returned for Christmas Dinner with friends to try the Lamb Marsala, Chicken Tikka, and Garlic Naan, it was a real gift to taste the truth of this: Apna Indian is faithful, indeed!

Mar-a-Lago: Diving into the history of a place in the news By Beverley Jackson, Special to VOICE


Photo courtesy of federal HABS

AR-A-LAGO – THAT NAME KEEPS POPPING UP in the news, whether the president made an announcement from there, or someone famous played golf on the golf course, or a major charity event was held there. What do we know about it? Well it’s in Palm Beach, Florida. And I know it belonged to the late socialite actress Dina Merrill’s mother. What else? It didn’t always belong to President Trump. He actually bought it in 1985 for $8,000,000. He was married to Ivana at the time, and a second wife followed, but he hung onto the estate through both divorces. It was originally built by Mr. and Mrs. E. F. Hutton. The Huttons received a building permit in October 1921 valued at $28,000. The property was on the golf course of the nearby Everglades Club. Mar-a-Lago — the Florida estate of Marjorie Merriweather Post. They engaged Marion Sims Wyeth, a conservative Beaux-Arts trained architect as their architect. The parcel of land they were building on was 17 acres. One of the first things they did was plant 14 of Palm Beach’s tallest coconut palms along the estate’s South Ocean Boulevard frontage. It then followed a path of Postum, a coffee substitute probably not remembered today. It was invented by a man known as C. W. Post. Next came Postum Cereals company and a daughter named Marjorie. Marjorie was well and properly raised and married a lawyer named Edward Close. In 1914 C. W. committed suicide and Marjorie became the main shareholder of Post Cereal. To get to the house, I’ll speed it up. After a divorce, Marjorie married a stockbroker named E. F. Hutton.

The Dumpling King By Sonia Fernandez / The UC Santa Barbara Current


SLA VISTA: For many of us these words evoke a sun-drenched, sea salt-sprayed college student enclave at the edge of the Pacific Ocean. For fisherman and cook Tingsheng Wang, his version of the Santa Barbara County South Coast is decidedly different — deep blue water often enshrouded in fog, the hallmark of the gray early morning hours spent fishing for the food that will soon become part of the staple offering of Dumpling King restaurant in IV. Though accustomed to the coast and the water, Wang, like many immigrants, is far from home, far from the Yellow Sea, a marginal sea shared by China and North and South Korea that envelops Shandong Province’s eastern border. The dumplings that his restaurant serves are his link to the place he left 20 years ago, an antidote to the loneliness that

he shares with the students who come to his place to get a bit of the Chinese comfort food Shandong is known for. UC Santa Barbara film and media studies major Zizheng Liu knows this feeling well. Originally from Beijing, he, too, has struggled to embrace the surroundings that are his new home and will be for at least a few more years. So when he chanced upon a middle-aged Chinese man cooking dumplings on a cold Isla Vista night, he struck up a friendship, one that led to the student short documentary, The Dumpling King, which has been selected for the 2020 Santa Barbara Film Festival (SBIFF). The film will show as part of the SBIFF’s Santa Barbara Documentary Shorts program. “Loneliness is a frequent visitor,” Liu said, “and I felt related to Wang at this point.” From his conversations with Wang, Liu decided to do a

short documentary. “It was not only going to be just about dumplings and fishing, but about him: his identity, his loneliness and his perseverance,” he said. The Dumpling King is an ambient documentary film, depicting an almost alternate-reality version of the South Coast — calmer, more muted, more introspective. According to Janet Walker, UCSB professor of film and media studies, “The Dumpling King is striking for its cinematography, its editing and for the special quality of empathy that is a signature of Liu’s work.” Filmed on location in places including Isla Vista and in the Santa Barbara Channel, the documentary follows Wang doing what many immigrants do: bringing the best of the old home to the new one. In the roughly two-and-a-half years since the restaurant has opened, it has become a go-

to for international Chinese students as well. “As an international student myself, I am always carrying tags like ‘Chinese,’ or ‘Asian,’” Liu said, “and I feel the strong responsibility to show the better side of us, as well as breaking down the stereotypes through (cross-cultural) activities as well as through films.” Tickets will be available at the door.

Retail Sales Strengthen Q4 Growth

By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE


T LOOKS LIKE CONSUMERS CAME THROUGH DURING THE HOLIDAYS, as retail sales jumped 0.3 percent in December and are up 3.5 percent from a year ago, per the FRED (St. Louis Fed) graph. It might be enough to get Q4 GDP back to a two percent growth rate, from predictions as low as 0.5 to 1.5 percent from the Atlanta Federal Reserve. And now that the Phase I China Trade Agreement is signed, the financial markets should stabilize. But that won’t bring back economic growth in this new year, as much of the damage from the two-year tariff wars has been done, especially in so-called capital expenditures, the seed-corn of future growth in private-sector companies.

in the parts of the country most affected by the trade disputes—maybe pulling back as well,” said a recent New York Times article. Freight volumes in 2019 had the largest decline since the Great Depression, and transportation and warehouse companies have cut more than 10,000 jobs since December. That means it will be up to consumers and the retail sector to maintain U.S. economic growth at its current level. But that means no further declines in capex spending. And here’s another thought. What if Republicans hadn’t made the draconian 2017 tax cuts to corporate profits that has now created a $1 trillion budget deficit? What if they had instead voted to use those lost tax revenues to begin reconstructing our ageing infrastructure, or for education, or environmental protection, or more research? Then we wouldn’t need to have this conversation about declining growth. Harlan Green © 2020 Follow Harlan Green on Twitter: https://twitter.com/HarlanGreen.

The FRED graph shows how capex spending in plants and equipment soared after the 2007 Great Recession, then leveled to around five percent annual increases until 2016, when it actually declined. It picked up again in 2017-18 before beginning its current decline to a 2.8 percent annual increase in Q3 2019. And there is still real damage to growth coming from the continuing trade wars. The New York Times and others have documented the continued damage to the same Midwest states that elected Trump—especially Wisconsin. Wisconsin will wind up losing 37,000 jobs because of Trump’s trade war, according to the protrade group Tariffs Hurt the Heartland, while the state’s businesses and residents have already paid $598 million in higher costs for goods and services because of U.S. tariffs, per a Huffington Post article.

Stewards of Fair Housing



At the Center of Santa Barbara’s Cultural Conversation | www.VoiceSB.com

By Staci Caplan, SBAOR President

EFLECTING ON THE MANY LEGACIES OF DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR., the Fair Housing Act is as top of mind as ever. Fighting for a diverse, equal, and unified community, the Act embodies the ideals of our country. As stewards of the right to own, use, and transfer private property, REALTORS® recognize our significant role in upholding the Fair Housing Act and reconfirm our commitment to offering equal professional service to all in their search for real property. Fair housing depends on a free, open market that embraces equal opportunity. This month, the National Association of REALTORS (NAR) rolled out the new Fair Housing Action Plan, abbreviated ‘ACT,’ which emphasizes (A)ccountability, (C)ulture Change, and (T)raining in order Staci Caplan to ensure America’s 1.4 million REALTORS® are doing everything possible to protect housing rights in America, and to oppose discrimination in housing based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and national origin. This policy is embodied in NAR’s Code of Ethics. It is our duty as REALTORS® to maintain equal opportunity in the housing market. In the fight for fair housing for all, REALTORS® leave discrimination at the door.

Cosmic Daydream: Immersive Space Age Virtual Reality Films


N IMMERSIVE ART INSTALLATION, Cosmic Daydream, is coming to Art from Scrap on January 31st from 6 to 9pm. Multimedia artist, Travis Hutchison, takes audiences through a celestial journey over the last few decades of legendary art, music, and culture that has impacted society. The installation features a suite of virtual reality films that include Andy Warhol’s Silver 60’s, David Bowie’s 70’s Glam Rock, and Kenny Scharf’s New Wave 80’s. “I want to inspire the public to experience art beyond the white walls of a museum or gallery, and to see and experience the endless possibilities of storytelling in the virtual space of this exciting new medium,” Hutchison writes of his work. The virtual reality experience will be offered for one night only on Friday, January 31st, from 6 to 9pm. The public is invited to join Hutchison for the Opening Reception that same night. Audiences will step into Andy Warhol’s Silver Factory, and transcend into his high-tech, unorthodox studio, featuring some of his most famous artworks and films. Audiences will witness some of Warhol’s Superstars Ultra Violet, Edie Sedgwick, and The Velvet Underground’s Lou Reed and Nic, which will make them feel as though they are experiencing the 60’s

Larson hopes the exhibition will surprise viewers with works by modern and contemporary artists who skillfully explore line and contours. “Artists, like Lee Krasner or Judy Chicago, who we typically know as painters working with expressive fields of color and lively brushwork, are also creators of wonderfully animated drawings and sensitive prints,” Larson added.
