CineCulture and Filmworks present ‘City of Gold’ May 13

Fresno State’s CineCulture film series and Filmworks present two screenings of “City of Gold” at 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Friday, May 13, at the Tower Theater (815 E. Olive Ave.). Laura Gabbert, director and producer, will lead the post-screening discussion after the first show. The film follows Pulitzer Prize-winning restaurant critic Jonathan Gold around Los Angeles, searching for the hidden treasures of the city. From family-owned restaurants in various ethnic communities to high-end establishments in Beverly Hills, Gold critiques his foodie experiences and lends his perspective of Los Angeles to viewers. Gabbert also has directed the critically acclaimed films “No Impact Man” and “Sunset Street,” among others, and her work uses humor and drama to put a human face on such difficult social issues as aging, the environment and the impact of AIDS. The 91-minute Rrated film is the final CineCulture screening of the spring semester; the series will resume in the fall. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $8 for students and seniors. They can be purchased online at FresnoFilmworks.org or at the Tower Theater box office. INFO: Dr. Mary Husain at mhusain@csufresno.edu or visit the CineCulture website. Trailer: www.cityofgolddoc.com/
