"I think What Would Jesus Buy? is a better fit for the bazaar than a film about torture," Bosch notes in his weekly e-blast. "For some reason, torture doesn't put people in a very festive mood, and I want festive at this bazaar."
So is Bosch sending a mixed message here? Shop, but don't shop? What gives? We have to say no. He's really on the up and up, considering that the bazaar's wares are exclusively fair trade items and all sales benefit the Third-World makers. Hit the Merc, 2199 California Street, beginning at 7 p.m.; admission is a $5 donation. For details, check out the ArgusFest website at www.argustfest.org.
