The lovely Vanessa Upegui will be producing and hosting a series of six 4-course cocktail-supplemented dinner parties (Grazelist) to Founders raise money to help create awildlife sanctuary in the Amazon. So far as I understand it, she will be building immersive environments with music and movement to illustrate and celebrate various South American regions, as listed below:

Oh my goodness… The Berlinale experience was out of this world! "Butter on the Latch" was received with endless enthusiasm. All the screenings (theaters of 500 people!) were sold out each night. Josephine Decker, the director of both "Butter on the Latch" and her second feature - which was also chosen to screen at the festival ("Thou Wast Mild and Lovely”) - was a wandering star at the Festival. We are so proud of her. The critical acclaim and press received for "Butter" is making me so proud to be part of this film. Here’s some adorable giggly red-carpet pics the whole thing was magical. Here's a trailer.

Small and Roberts will also perform traditional and arranged Balkan a Cappella repertoire as a duo, including songs from their upcoming album.
