Relatos Salvajes (Wild Tales)

Presented by the Olympia Film Society

Dir: Damián Szifron / 2015 / Argentina / Spanish with English subtitles / 122 min /DCP

Inequality, injustice and the demands of the world we live in cause stress and depression for many people. Some of them, however, explode. This is a movie about those people. Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters of Wild Tales cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. A lover’s betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control. Wickedly hilarious and delightfully deranged, Wild Tales is a subversive satire that doubles as a uniformly witty anthology film.

Thurston-Santo Tomás Sister County Association Annual Spring Plant Sale

Help support sixteen students in our sister community of Santo Tomás, Nicaragua by joining our campaign to partially fund their college scholarships. This is TSTSCA's third annual perennial plant sale on Olympia's Westside. There will be more than 50 varieties of native and non-native flowering plants and shrubs, some edibles too (organic strawberry and kale starts). This is the perfect time to get some more interesting colors, textures and lovely smells into your garden, and Mother's Day is also coming right up: great gifts!

There is a need for helpers on the day of the sale, as well as the Friday prior to transport plants from Lacey to the sale location, and before that to pot up some more strawberry plants. They are also looking to borrow a portable canopy and tables for the day of the sale. If you have such things to lend, please contact TSTSCA via their F

Olympia Spanish Conversation Meetup

"Casual, fun, relaxing events for getting together and practicing your Spanish�maybe never quite "perfecting" it, but getting just a little bit better each time, while meeting fun, kind, and interesting people (people like you!). Native Spanish speakers who would enjoy helping people learn their language are also welcome!! If you really enjoy using your Spanish, and enjoy meeting other people who like Spanish as much as you do, we would love to have you join us.

We meet on the first and third Mondays of each month, because your weekend is probably already busy, and having something to look forward to on Monday just allows that weekend feeling to last one day longer!"

Varies. See the Olympia Spanish Conversation Meetup web page.
