BEYOND HALLOWEEN AND some- times baseball, October brings one other local pleasure: the Mill Valley Film Festival. Our MVFF Guide celebrates the 40th year of
the event with intriguing stories on directors
like John Carpenter, who loved to film here in
Marin, plus event highlights, the full schedule
and an interview with MVFF Award recipient
Todd Haynes. You’ll find the guide included
with this issue; pull it out and take it along.
In our regular issue, we kick off features
with a cork-popping trip to Wine Country.
Daniel Mangin takes us to five under-the-
radar winery stops guaranteed to hit all the
right flavor notes.
Next, Laura Hilgers looks at a Mill Valley
home rebuild that is modern, beautiful and
green to the core. Of special interest is a first-any where bamboo framing system made by a
company in Windsor.

We wrap up features with a story by Kier
Holmes on her photographer friend Lisa
Kristine. Kristine spent the past 30 years going
to 100 countries to capture absolutely stunning
shots of the modern face of slavery. The photographer hopes her images will shed light on the
problem and spur action to combat it.
Up front, we’ve got Halloween fun, includ-
ing some spooky haunts. We also introduce you
to S.F. Giants reporter Amy Gutierrez, aka Amy
G; midcentury modern collector Steve Cabella;
and county librarian Laurie Thompson.
In Appellations we have some more
great wine country picks for you, and in Go,
a mother and daughter report back from
American Prairie Reserve in the high plains
It’s an issue full of fun and truly remarkable stories. We hope you’ll read, grab the
popcorn and join us in the happy throng at the
Mill Valley Film Festival — Oscar is calling.

SHINE A LIGHT
Many don’t realize that slavery
still exists in the modern world.
Mill Valley photographer Lisa
Kristine has spent the last 30
years documenting its many
forms and trying to show,
in images, the dignity and
humanity of people in a
system they can’t escape.
