Thanks to filmmaker Emio Tomeoni, society at large has further grounds to believe all Berkeleyites worship the Mayan underworld and drive solar-powered cupcakes.

In his forthcoming documentary, Power Trip: Theatrically Berkeley, the Bay Area native managed to capture footage of Zachary RunningWolf’s 2008 mayoral campaign, the Global Citizen Awards at UC Berkeley’s very own International House, and all the major dramz surrounding the passage of Measure G in 2006.

The screening is happening this Monday, Oct. 26 at our very own Pacific Film Archive at 2575 Bancroft Way. Free for UC Berkeley students and faculty, $5 with other valid school ID, $8 for everyone else.

The Clog loves women, so we’re all really excited that March, Women’s History Month, has finally arrived. Presently, the campus seems to be a flurry of activity, organizing around women’s and feminist issues.

The celebration of women’s history was originally just a week long, beginning in Sonoma County, California in 1978. But that was not enough woman for the States. (Mind you, there’s never enough woman.) By 1987, it had evolved to an entire month through Congress’s love of T&A. Feminism. We mean feminism.

The Pacific Film Archive is hosting a Women of Color film festival for the next weekish. The artists will be present at all screenings.

Luna Fest is another film festival featuring shorts by, for and about women. The event will be held at Clark Kerr’s Krutch Theatre. It starts at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 13. Admission is $4 for students.

Is that enough woman for you yet? No? We didn’t think so.

Did you read the Chron’s masterful piece “Diary of a Sex Slave”? Intrigued, perhaps? A panel has come together on campus to discuss more on sex trafficking. STOP (Sex Trafficking Obliteration Petition) starts at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 8. It will be held in Heller Lounge.

Or, you know, you could always stay home with your “girlfriend” Betsy. Just don’t get too rough with her this time. It sucks having to blow her back up.

1964 marks the year those famed Liverpudlian lotharios blew up the American pop stage and fulfilled every prepubescent fantasy left dry by Elvis’ rusty pelvis. Distributed in the the summer of 1964, A Hard Day’s Night is a semi-mockumentary that simultaneously plants its tongue in the cheek of Beatlemania and sells us the soundtrack that first pinned the Beatles on the charts.
