Filmmaker Liz Sher Profiles Alameda’s Weezie Mott

In her 97 years on the planet, Weezie Mott has worked as a nursing instructor, studied the finer points of French cuisine at the Le Cordon Bleu school in London with the likes of Julia Child and Jacques Pepin, and has run her own cooking school from her Alameda home kitchen since 1977.

Known as the Julia Child of Alameda, Weezie Mott proves an interesting subject for filmmaker Liz Sher’s documentary: Weezie Mott: Still Cookin’.

Community, Friends Inspire Artist Muzae Sesay

Artist Muzae Sesay aims to create a sense of intrigue, exploration, and agency, inviting the viewer take on the role of narrator while navigating the space with his guidance.

In his work, the Oakland artist addresses community, sociology, human interaction with spaces, fragmentation of memory, and home/domestic life. That is no big surprise, since Sesay studied sociology at San Francisco State.

In describing Oakland’s Union Point Park as …”a favored destination for family gatherings on warm spring and summer days”, (Journey Through Jingletown – June 2019), you have done your readers a disservice, a very dangerous one. While once true, Union Point Park has been ceded by the City of Oakland to well over a hundred itinerate campers and is a hotbed of filth and crime populated by decrepit and stolen vehicles, drug use and sales, bicycle chop shops and massive piles of garbage. Rather than a “popular stop for casual bicycling buddies”, it has devolved into a no-go zone for both the police and public alike to be avoided at all costs. The Bay Area citizens have lost another public space jewel to governmental indifference. I would strongly suggest you refer to the open letter of May 9th published in the Alameda Sun by Matt Gerhart of the California State Coastal Conservancy; Brad McCrea of BCDC; and Laura Thompson of the San Francisco Bay Trail Project: "In recent months, each of our agencies has received complaints from the public about a range of undesirable or illegal activities occurring in the park, including: vandalism, graffiti, prostitution, drug use, dumping of waste, fires, threats to tenants of the neighboring Union Point Marina and a damaging act of arson at the marina’s shower and restroom facility. These activities are creating an unsafe and unwelcoming environment that is restricting the public’s ability to access and enjoy the park."
Hi Judith, I was referencing your magazine’s Dining Guide, page 57, in which the review recommends REEM’s, a "social- justice oriented, colorful oriented" destination. Can you explain to me why you've chosen to recommend a restaurant whose owner honors and celebrates a terrorist with a giant mural? Rasmea Odeh, is a military member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) who murdered two university students, Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner in 1969 when she put a bomb in a Jerusalem supermarket. She also unsuccessfully tried to bomb the British Consulate. Odeh was sentenced to life in prison, but spent only 10 years there. She was released in a prisoner exchange in 1979 for an Israeli soldier captured in Lebanon, eventually making her way to the U.S. Odeh was so important to the terrorist movement that infamous airplane hijacker Leila Khaled formed the “Rasmea Odeh Brigade” in hopes of freeing Odeh. She was also on the list of prisoners whose release was demanded by the Black September 1972 Olympic hostage takers. Last May Odeh pled guilty to one count of obtaining naturalization unlawfully based on her non-disclosure on her U.S. immigration and naturalization forms of her conviction and imprisonment in Israel. Imagine, if you will, an Israeli restaurant in the US featuring a giant mural of the terrorist Baruch Goldstein. The condemnation from all corners, including from Jewish community institutions —especially from Jewish community institutions — would be deafening. Or imagine an African-American coming across a restaurant featuring Southern cuisine, only to find that it included a tribute to Dylann Roof, who gunned down nine African-Americans in a church. Of course, that would never happen. In times when Jews are being attacked from the right and the left, I hope you'll discontinue advertising and promoting this establishment known for its glorification of terrorists.
I'm so touched to be nominated for this award! If I win, the Alameda High School Theatre Department would be awarded $15, 000 for our program! With Kofman opening next year, this would make a HUGE difference in the quality/number of shows we could put on next year!!! *If you would like to vote for this, please go to:
