Thought Fremont was the Center of the Universe? Café Rozella has been challenging that claimchampioning its White Center locationsince 2005 by offering an atmosphere of progressive politics, world
music, literary goings-on, and films every Friday night. Its your typical coffee shop, where people still check e-mail and passive-aggressively flirt, but with a few more things on the calendar. Tonight, check out Final Friday Film Freakout No. 2, a new monthly film and noise (as in avant-garde music) series. Olympias Devon Damonte, who has screened his direct-animation films at Northwest Film Forum and festivals around the country, will show recent work, along with films by Chris Ando. Damontes are abstract motion graphics made by hand, without cameras, and hell present a workshop on that process at the cafe on Saturday, March 1. In the New Center of the Universe, you might discover another artistic one.
