Gamelan Works At Oct. 15 Noon Concert

The program, "Essence of Harmony: Javanese Gamelan," includes a dance by the choreographer Bagong Kussudiardjo, whose work has been prominent in Indonesia for the past four decades and an unusual composition traditionally played in the Surakarta palace when the king left the throne room.

Free Depression Screenings Oct. 9

Licensed psychologists and mental health professionals will offer members of the campus and local community the opportunity to learn about the signs and symptoms of depression and participate in a free, confidential screening Thursday, Oct. 9.

Screenings will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Stephens Lounge, located on the third floor of the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union.

This opportunity is being offered in conjunction with National Depression Screening Day, sponsored nationally by the American Psychological Association and other mental health organizations.

All are welcome, whether the interest is personal or for a friend or family member.

Participants can watch a short video, pick up educational materials and/or hear a brief talk followed by a question- and-answer period. They may also complete a confidential written screening test for depression and discuss the results with a mental health professional. Referrals for follow-up evaluation and treatment will be available.

Campus and community members are also invited to attend a lecture, "Overview of Medications Used in Depression Treatment," presented by Ron Elson, chief of psychiatry at University Health Services.

The lecture is at 4 p.m., also on Oct. 9, in Room 3290 of Tang Center, 2222 Bancroft Way.

Films From Greece

Films of avant-garde filmmaker Gregory Markopoulos (1928-1992) can be seen at Pacific Film Archive and SF Cinematheque between now and Oct. 23.

Mythology, portraits of fellow artists, and evocations of beloved places are among the themes that most intrigued Markopoulos, who has been called "the American avant-garde cinema's supreme erotic poet." PFA's screenings, scheduled for Oct. 9, 21 and 23, demonstrate his mastery of complex superimpositions, reconfigured sound compositions, and intricate editing. Many have been unavailable since Markopoulos moved to Greece some 30 years ago.

Advance tickets are on sale at the PFA Box Office, or may be charged by phoning 642-5249. For information, call 642-1412.
