Bring the whole family to a wonderful free evening of Shakespeare performed in the outdoors. Written just after “Hamlet” was completed, “Twelfth Night” reveals a more mature Shakespeare, writing about miracles of reconciliation, of second chances and of redemption. Classic Shakespearean dramatic irony is paired with his trademark laugh-out-loud comedy plus a liberal dose of romance. Perennially popular, this play is Shakespeare at his best. Please dress warmly and bring a blanket. Chairs are provided at the San Juan venues. No tickets or reservations are needed. We are on a first-come-and-welcome-all basis.

Grange Hall, 152 1st Street

Baraka is a film with no narrative, complemented by the hybrid world-music of Michael Stearns.  A collection of expertly photographed scenes of human life and religion, it explores themes via a kaleidoscopic compilation of natural events, human activities and technological phenomena shot in 24 countries on six continents over a 14-month period.  Barakabrings together a series of stunningly photographed scenes to capture what director Ron Fricke calls “a guided mediation on humanity.” Cameras show the world, with an emphasis not on “where,” but on “what’s there.” Named after a Sufi word that translates roughly as “breath of life” or “blessing,” Baraka is a tour-de-force in 70mm that unites religious ritual, the phenomena of nature, and man’s own destructive powers into a web of moving images. “The goal of the film,” says producer Mark Magidson, “was to reach past language, nationality, religion and politics and speak to the inner viewer.”

These films are organized by the FHFF as an ongoing fundraiser for the Friday Harbor Film Festival.   Show time is at 7:00 p.m.

Running time: 1 hour 36 minutes

The Whale Museum, 62 First St.

The Whale Museum is pleased to welcome Michael Jasny as part of the 2014 Summer Lecture Series. Michael will discuss “Ocean Roar: Combating Noise from Commercial Ships”.  Michael Jasny is Director of the Marine Mammal Protection Project and a Senior Policy Analyst at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC).

The ocean is an acoustic world, and whales and many other species of marine life rely on sound for their survival. But we are rapidly transforming that world. The roar of commercial ships has elevated natural ambient levels of noise by orders of magnitude since the 1950s, destroying the ability of whales to communicate, producing chronic stress, and inhibiting their foraging. Major new transport projects threaten to dramatically increase the volume of shipping through Puget Sound and the Salish Sea and further degrade the acoustic habitat of our region. In this lecture, Michael Jasny will describe the global problem of underwater shipping noise and discuss some important recent efforts, from London to Lime Kiln, to bring it under control.
