"JEAN GENET IN CHICAGO" + SPACE RACE MYTHS +
Honored by San Francisco magazine as the “Robin Hood” of the City’s librarians, Megan Shaw Prelinger proffers a privileged preview of her upcoming book project, "Another Science Fiction: Illustrating the Space Race", an interpretation of a particularly rich media-archeological niche of early ‘60s aerospace advertising. Frédéric Moffet’s Jean Genet in Chicago also rewrites the Sixties, through the restaging, with masks and archival footage, of Genet’s engagement in the protests against the ‘68 Democratic Convention. PLUS a slew of other works that, too, offer alternative and aberrant readings of the received historical record: Rodney Ascher’s Triumph of Victory, Greg Sholette’s Return of the Atomic Ghosts, Scott Calonico’s Mondo Ford, Geoff Adam’s Shadow of Liberty, and Aaron Valdez’ Life and Times of Robert Kennedy Starring Gary Cooper. Doc-comet Sam Green hosts, utilizing this forum for historiographic agency to update us all on his Sarah Jacobson Film Fund. Come early for the spot-on pseudo-doc "Dark Side of the Moon".
