FILM SERIES
Vegas Highs, Vegas Lows
December 20–27
Phyllis Wattis Theater

Las Vegas is a topsy-turvy world that seems to defy taste, a world where what’s bad is good, and what’s good is bad. The same goes for more than a few films about Vegas. In this series, what would normally be taken as a vacant spectacle suffering from an existential crisis reveals itself to be a unique cinematic gem that epitomizes the peculiar character of the place itself. In conjunction with Double Down, SFMOMA presents some of the high points of Las Vegas film—and some low points that became high points, given time.

Experimental Shorts
Curated by Steve Anker, dean, School of Film/Video, California Institute of the Arts
Saturday, December 27, 3 p.m.

$5 general; free for SFMOMA members or with museum admission (requires a free ticket, which can be picked up in the Haas Atrium). Double features: films offered on the same date are included in one ticket.
