FILM: Director David Fine will be in person at tonight's screening of his documentary, Salaam Dunk, which kicks off YBCA's Human Rights Watch Film festival. The film follows an Iraqi women’s basketball team, whose players come from all ethnicities and sects—Arab, Kurd, Christian, Sunni, Shiite, providing them with a blissful release from the realities of a war-torn nation and revealing an Iraq not shown in the news. (7:30 p.m., Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, 701 Mission Street)

ART: In Remainders: god, sex and animals, artist Nigel Poor examines and deconstructs the notion of censored books through photographic, sculptural and text-based works, largely focusing on books that included women’s names in the titles or overtly referenced women, including Lady Chatterley’s Lover, Girl Interrupted, Julie of the Wolves and The Diary of Anne Frank. (5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Haines Gallery, 49 Geary Street, Suite 540)

CRAFT: Learn how to embroider at this month's Craft Bar, featuring artist Diana Rupp, who will be leading an embroidered craft based on her book, Embroider Everything Workshop. MOCFA staff and volunteers will help guide beginners through the basics, "with as little finger-pricking as possible." (6 to 8 p.m., Museum of Craft and Folk Art, 51 Yerba Buena Lane)
