Update: The opening night film for the Venice Film Festival was announced today; "The Truth", from writer-director Hirokazu Kore-eda. "The Truth" stars Catherine Deneuve as a celebrated actress (I wonder if the role was written for her) and Juliette Binoche as her daughter. Ethan Hawke plays the son-in-law.

Also, a new 4K restoration of the 1933 Hedy Lamarr film "Ecstasy" will be screened the night before the fest officially opens.

There is a partial lunar eclipse tonight - a nice little commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11! Alas, besides only being partial, it won't be widely visible. But if you want to find out if you'll be able to see it, just check your location on timeanddate.com.

Johannes Kepler's book with his observations on the 1604 supernova was titled De Stella Nova in Pede Serpentarii [On the New Star in Ophiuchus's Foot]. Here's a copy of his drawing showing the location of the supernova. It's a bit difficult to see, but you'll have guessed where it is from the book's title! It's marked with an "N" on Ophiuchus's right foot.

Writer-director Damien Chazelle's latest feature film project is "Babylon", a period drama that is set at the moment when movies were transitioning to sound. Emma Stone and Brad Pitt are possible leads for the pic. I'm not a fan of Chazelle's "Whiplash", but am looking forward to "Babylon" if it doesn't mock the incredible artistry of silents (i.e. "Singin' in the Rain" and "Valentino").

They do sound innovative and I do see that they are trying to address the trends in tea. But as editor here I just want to remind everyone that one should always seek out their doctor's advice regarding the use of herbs and fruits or extracts. At times your medications may interact. It is good to check just to be safe.

Agriculture doesn't need to be a solitary pursuit. Communities that are able to work the soil together develop bonds not only with each other, but with the earth. Here's a look at what community sponsored agriculture is and how we can all benefit from it.

"The Farewell", starring Awkwafina, opens today. Here is a quote from the film's writer-director Lulu Wang.

"I don’t know how to make an Asian American film. You know what I mean? So as I’m approaching the writing and the directing, all I can say is I have to hang onto the textures of this family, of this life, of the locations that I know so well, but I’m not going into it thinking how do I make it more Asian, more Asian American, more American. I had to lose all of those labels and make it, as any filmmaker who’s making a film about family would, just about family, about humans, about a relationship between a granddaughter and her grandmother."
