One of the things I like best about the film festival is the pure serendipity that happens in the chaos that is the festival. At this year’s press breakfast I was introduced to Louise Palanker, a local Santa Barbara filmmaker, who had made a film about The Cowsills. Who? What? Oh, the inspiration for The Partridge Family, I had seen that in reruns. Then Louise told me the story she found when she went looking for The Cowsills. It’s a compelling story about a family with great talent and tragedy. The film screens Friday followed by a live show at Soho with local band The Tearaways.
Friday, February 3, 7:20pm, Metro 4
