A timely San Francisco story!

The J. Paul Leonard Library presents a free public screening of Uncommon Knowledge: Closing the Books at UC Berkeley Extension.

A unique view of privatization happening in real time, Uncommon Knowledge takes place inside inside UC Berkeley Extension as plans unfold to close its historic San Francisco campus and convert it into a lucrative private development. Filmmaker Eliza Hemenway worked at the campus for over six years. Wondering why UC Regents were closing a campus with a 150 year history of public use, she picked up her camera and began to film. The result is a revealing look into higher education and culture, as well as a hauntingly beautiful portrait of a campus and the community it served.

Accompanied by an edgy original soundtrack written and performed by Tim Barsky and Everyday Theatre with additional music by The Toids.

ENDORSEMENTS
"A beautifully crafted and poetic political commentary."
~Ellen Bruno, Documentary Filmmaker

"Stunning visuals and leaps of insight, this film is as entertaining as it is illuminating. Eliza Hemenway is a promising new talent in documentary film."
~Jon Garfield, Media Studies Faculty at New College of California
