On Sat. Oct. 1, A.T.A. Gallery’s OTHER CINEMA presents the NorCal premiere of Vanessa Renwick’s “Lovejoy”, a 20-min. memorial to murals made in the ‘40s by Oregon switchman Tom Stefopoulos. The city of Portland commissioned the folk documentarian to record the restoration of these marvelous columns, featured in Gus Van Sant’s Drugstore Cowboy.
Anchoring the program is Bill Daniel’s 50-min. rogue doc on Hobo graffiti “Bozo Texino”, the result of a 10-year quest hopping freights with super 8 and 16 mm cameras.
ALSO on the program is Erick Lyle’s slide history of wet-cement “sidewalk engravings.”
All three folk documentarians will be here in the flesh!!!
PLUS: People’s chef Mark Brecke ladles out free hobo stew whilst Swamp Train evoke and emote the bluesy notes of the life nomadic.
