The Institute at The New Parkway - In Memory of Kiyomi Tanouye - A Benefit for Planned Parenthood
Our friend Kiyomi was one of 36 people who passed away in the Ghost Ship fire in Oakland this past December. This documentary by Spencer McCall features her as one of its main interviewees. Kiyomi loved the Jejune Institute. She actively produced events to benefit the community, was an ardent feminist and LGBT-rights activist, and was committed to social justice. She was also an excellent friend. Her magic lives on eternally in the hearts of those who loved her.
All proceeds will benefit Planned Parenthood.

Welcome to the Jejune Institute, a mind-bending San Francisco phenomenon where 10,000 people became "inducted" without ever quite realizing what they'd signed up for. Was it a cult? Was it an elaborate game? Told from the participants perspectives, the film looks over the precipice at an emergent new art form where real world and fictional narratives collide, creating unforeseen and often unsettling consequences. Fusing elements of counter-culture, new religious movements and street art, THE INSTITUTE invites viewers down the rabbit hole into a secret underground world teeming just beneath the surface of everyday life.
