This is the first full week of not-to-be-missed movies at the San Francisco International Film Festival, which continues through May 7. Check here for reviews and details.

If you’ve had your fill of film, hit up Modern Times on Wednesday to hear from Chesa Boudin about his adventures in Latin America, chronicled in the book “Gringo.” The New York Times gave the book a scathing review last week — the sort of slam that made me wince on Boudin’s behalf. But that doesn’t mean an in-person audience won’t be worth your time. Boudin is a Rhodes Scholar, the son of jailed Weather Underground activists, and even The Times says he is a “genial guy.”

Thursday afternoon at 2:30, weekly free yoga at the Women’s Center. Free! My kind of yoga.

And Friday is May 1, International Workers’ Day —  a day to rally for workers’ rights. Folks marching in San Francisco will meet at Dolores Park, right in our own backyard, at noon, and then continue on to the Civic Center by 4 pm. Mission Loc@l is planning a special day of reporting with news feeds from workers’ rights rallies around the world. Stay tuned for details!
