 Houseboat Wars Sausalito Documentary Film Series
Houseboat Wars
Special Guest: Filmmaker Marianne Dolan
Friday, January 30
7:00pm inside the Library

Local filmmaker and Galilee Harbor resident Marianne Dolan will present her recently completed documentary, Houseboat Wars. Dolan moved to the Sausalito waterfront in the early nineties and immediately joined Galilee Harbor’s increasingly desperate struggle for survival. After Galilee finally won the right to build itself a new home, she began a personal quest to understand why they had succeeded. Researching in archives, recording interviews with residents, and mining thousands of feet of waterfront home movies going back to the sixties, the key elements of success emerged. Houseboat Wars is Dolan’s effort to pass on the lessons learned at Galilee Harbor to people anywhere gearing up for a fight to preserve a community.  Co-sponsored by the Sausalito Historical Society

Play Reading - Special Event

Join us for our first play reading inside the Library! Director Norman Gee will present BANYAN by playwright and Sausalito resident Jeannie Barroga. Barroga has a long list of awards and national productions to her name.

In BANYAN, a large tree houses a renegade group on an unspecified island. In the U.S., however, Ona is relegated to the shredding room of a big corporation. She's due for a vacation but needs to travel with her reluctant brother. The Oz-like characters she meets guide her deeper into a jungle-like world and closer to the mystery she's eluded in the shredding room.
