Ibrahim Parlak's Story with a Twist

BY ANGELA REICHERT
@ VOL 4 ON FEB 11, 2016

“He called the restaurant Gulistan which means ‘the land of roses’. To the restaurant came the people. First one, then two, then a bunch.”

In Ibrahim Parlak's Story with a Twist from PechaKucha Night Saint Joseph’s 4th volume, Presenter Ashley Reichert tells the story of a man from Kurdistan, Ibrahim Paralak, and his journey to a small town in Michigan. He is in search of freedom - a place where people are free to speak their minds, free from oppression, and free persecution. All he wants is to make a peaceful place for his family, his restaurant, and a place to grow his roses.

All is going well, until one day he is just gone. Soon, many people ask where he has gone, and learn he has been jailed with the fear of being deported. Ashley goes on to tell us how he is released from jail and goes back to family, his restaurant, and his roses. All seems well again, but there's a twist.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, April, 27th, 2016.

Twin Peaks Ain't No Hogwash

BY ZACK GODSHALL
@ VOL 5 ON JUN 30, 2017

It’s been said that without Twin Peaks, "half your favorite shows wouldn’t exist." Even though it may not be one of your favorite shows (yet), Zack Godshall would like to go ahead and throw his new web series Hogwash into this category of "Would Not Exist Were It Not For Twin Peaks." Are the shows similar? On the surface, not really. But inspiration is a funny thing, and he'll try to mine this and other mysteries in the hopes of revealing why Twin Peaks ain’t no Hogwash.

PK Special: Chicago | UK

Two Fridays ago, from the heights of Olympia Center in Chicago, in the residence of the British Consul General, a very special PechaKucha eve was held. British creatives residing in the Windy City presented on topics aplenty: Tom Burtonwood and Mike Moceri let us peer into the world of 3D printing with a MakerBot presentation, Michael and Dianne Jackson discussed married life, Kenny G, and twins (we're sure there's a line to be drawn through those three topics), and Robert Chatterton Dickson chatted a ton about his life as a British diplomat. The home of Robert and Teresa Albor was opened to about 100 frequenters of PeckaKucha Night Chicago, and all entry funds went to Vanavevhu: a charity benefiting children in Zimbabwe.  As you can see, the downtown city-view was downright impressive, which may have you asking, "Can we get much higher?" Well yes, in fact, the highest PechaKucha soirée was for Inspire Japan -- held in Roppongi Hills Mori Tower's 52nd floor. Anyone up to challenge Tokyo's title? A full album of photos from this affair can be found on PKN Chicago's event page.
