Think of it as a progressive film festival, not like in pushing artistic boundaries, more like how film fans will have to follow the Second Annual Japan Film Festival Los Angeles around town. With 22 films making either their North American or at least their L.A. premiere, the festival takes place Friday through next Thursday at the Monica 4-Plex, then moves to the Downtown Independent April 17 to 19, and winds up April 25 and 26 at the Starplex Cinema in Irvine.

THERE'S a simple rule one should always observe in Mexico's vast, unforgiving northern wastelands, says Angel Norzagaray: Move too fast, and you'll dry out and die. So Norzagaray has developed what he calls a "desert aesthetic," a list of artistic guidelines for making theater on the edge of nature's blast furnace. First, do away with inessential action and extraneous dialogue.

August 18, 2002 | JONATHAN KIRSCH, Jonathan Kirsch, a contributing writer to the Book Review, is the author of, most recently, "The Woman Who Laughed at God: The Untold History of the Jewish People."
As pinned down and laid open on the pages of "Unmasking L.A.: Third Worlds and the City," the City of Angels may be nearly unrecognizable to many of the readers who are likely to pick up the book. A "crater of genocide" is how editor Deepak Narang Sawhney describes the place, a "dystopian metro-galaxy." "Unmasking L.A."

Bicycling along the coast one recent morning, I did just about everything wrong. Having predicted that the sun wouldn't break through the gloom, I overdressed. I didn't eat or drink enough. And I miscalculated the crowds, not expecting to have to dodge so many distracted drivers, Roller-bladers, joggers and skateboarders that early.

Only a small slice of Los Angeles is on display Saturday and today, but it is a juicy, savory, aromatic slice, one that you bite into to find the richness of its people revealed. It is seven hot blocks of Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake, cordoned off so that someone like Woranut Nimnuansakun, a Thai immigrant, can stand over her fiery wok in a food booth furiously stirring a mountain of pad thai noodles.

Everything's coming up roses in Exposition Park. Of course, this isn't news to anyone who's walked through the park in the last 73 years. To the rest of Southern California, however, the 7-acre Exposition Park Rose Garden, surrounded by one of the most historic neighborhoods in downtown L.A., is one of the city's best-kept secrets.

The Jewish Music Festival opened a four-night run at the Knitting Factory on Tuesday with a rousing set of tunes from Hollywood Klezmer. Although the group's glitzy name may have suggested otherwise, the program had a solidly traditional quality. And that was just fine for the moderate-sized but highly enthusiastic crowd, who reacted in spirited fashion to numbers that embraced such pop-derived numbers as "And the Angels Sing" and "Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen."

Where there's a will, there's an Edge. As the Edge of the World Theater Festival enters its second year, event organizers are working to address issues that came up last year--among them the absence of a central staging area, a lack of ethnic diversity in shows and some confusion over what constitutes "edgy." The inaugural festival ran eight days, and featured 50 shows at 20 venues.
