Black, Bold & Brilliant Event: Little Satchmo Film Screening + Filmmaker Q&A @ Salt Lake City Downtown Public Library
Feb 1 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Black, Bold & Brilliant Event: Little Satchmo Film Screening + Filmmaker Q&A @ Salt Lake City Downtown Public Library |  |  |

Free in-person film screening and Q&A led by the Black, Bold and Brilliant team featuring film director John Alexander and film subject Sharon Preston Folta via Zoom.

Little Satchmo is an intimate exploration of the iconic Louis Armstrong’s life and legacy through his relationship with the daughter that the public never knew existed. Based on a revealing memoir written by Armstrong’s silent daughter, the film seeks to correct a historical narrative relying on caricature for too long.

Louis Daniel Armstrong, nicknamed “Satchmo”, had an illustrious career that spanned five decades. Due to his unique music styling, charisma, and gritty vocals, he is credited with changing the focus of jazz music from “collective improvisation” to solo performance. With an eye for the ladies, Armstrong had several failed marriages but remained with his fourth wife Lucille Wilson until his death in 1971. During his marriage to Wilson, Armstrong had a long time affair with Lucille Preston. Together they had a daughter, Sharon, who Louis lovingly called “Little Satchmo”. To protect them and his career, Lucille and Sharon lived in the shadows of his limelight.

“Hidden Letters” free film screening and discussion presented by Utah Film Center @ Salt Lake City Downtown Public Library
Feb 8 all-day
“Hidden Letters” free film screening and discussion presented by Utah Film Center @ Salt Lake City Downtown Public Library |  |  |

Utah Film Center is excited to announce our upcoming free film screening of Hidden Letters Wednesday, February 8 at 7 pm at the Salt Lake Downtown Public Library.

Presented as part of the Utah Film Center’s Through the Lens Series and in partnership with KUER’s Radiowest, Hidden Letters is a story of two Chinese women trying to balance their lives as independent women in modern China while confronting the traditional identity that defines but also oppresses them.

For thousands of years women who were often forced into oppressive marriages and forbidden to read or write, shared a secret language among themselves called Nushu. Written with delicate strokes made from sharpened bamboo sticks dipped in ink, Nushu bonded generations of Chinese women in a clandestine support system of sisterhood and survival.

Join us afterward as KUER’s Radiowest host, Doug Fabrizio, hosts a lively discussion with film director, Violet Du Feng via zoom cinematically exploring China’s gender issues as portrayed by this sensitive and stirring documentary.

Companion Depth Workshop on Saturday, February 11th

Beginning in the years leading up to the Great War, both C.G. Jung and J.R.R. Tolkien independently began to undergo profound imaginal experiences. Jung recorded these fantasies in a large red manuscript that he named Liber Novus, referred to simply as The Red Book. For Tolkien, this imaginal journey revealed to him the world of Middle-earth, whose stories and myths eventually led to the writing of The Lord of the Rings, a book he named within its own imaginal history The Red Book of Westmarch. This lecture explores the many synchronistic parallels between Jung’s and Tolkien’s Red Books: the style and content of their works of art, the narrative descriptions and scenes in their texts, the nature of their visions and dreams, and an underlying similarity in world view that emerged from their experiences. The two men seem to have been simultaneously treading parallel paths through the imaginal realm.

We’ll demonstrate techniques and tips specific to different types of gardening tools and offer hands-on practice during class so students can get a feel for cleaning their tools and honing a sharp edge.

Expect to walk away with a working knowledge of different files, whetstones, various oils, lubricants and other tool cleaning and maintenance supplies. In addition to learning how to extend the life of your existing hand tools, you’ll learn what to look for when you need to purchase new tools that can stand the test of time.

Craft Lake City STEM Labs Workshop: ValenSlime @ Utah STEM Action Center Innovation Hub
Feb 11 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Craft Lake City STEM Labs Workshop: ValenSlime @ Utah STEM Action Center Innovation Hub |  |  |

At STEM labs, we use scientific principles in creative new ways, and our special guest scientist Beth Drees will explain not just HOW to make slime, but WHY the whole thing works! Using this new chemical knowledge, kids are encouraged to create test batches of slime to explore their favorite textures by experimenting with different combinations of ingredients until they find the perfect recipe. Once their slime is just right, we’ll use ratios to create a mega-batch, add their favorite custom mix-ins, and package individual portions to hand out as special DIY valentine gifts for the whole class. Even grown ups will have fun engineering fascinating new goops with their kids, and at the end, everyone will walk away feeling like a chemical engineer.

This workshop will be held at the STEM Action Center’s Innovation Hub in Millcreek, where you can have all the fun of slime and leave the mess behind!

Please note: a parent or guardian must be in attendance with their child/children. The $29 ticket allows entry for one child and one parent. An additional $10 for entry of another child with that ticket.
