• Fern Silva’s Concrete Parlay

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of whatever you’ve got: this week we review Stolen Seas, a documentary by UC alum Thymaya Payne that looks at the economics of 21st-century piracy; it screens all week at Facets Cinematheque. Drew Hunt recommends Concrete Parlay: An Evening With Fern Silva, shorts by the NYC fimmaker, and Ben Sachs likes Shohei Imamura’s 1975 TV doc Karayuki-San: The Making of a Prostitute, on Friday and Sunday at Gene Siskel Film Center.
