Documentary filmmaker Cecil B. Feeder's dossier includes such wonderful shorts as Our Lady of Tamale (a rockumentary about a woman who hawks tamales to bar-goers in San Francisco), and Meter Maid Me Mad (another San Francisco-themed flick about the perils of trying to park your car downtown). Now Feeder is trying to raise money for his new film, Welcome to Yanayo, which follows a group of young altruists from the organization Engineers Without Borders as they try to save a village in Bolivia. Feeder will screen the trailer at a benefit event on Thursday, Mar. 26 at La Peña Cultural Center (3105 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley), which also features Latin jazz by Calle 49, comedy by CheapCity cartoonist Michael Capozzola,and a silent auction. Proceeds will help Feeder finish the film. You can gauge his progress on the Welcome to Yanayofund-o-meter, available at CecilBFeeder.com. 7:30 p.m., $10.
