Chris Carlsson's FoundSF +
Saturday, March 21, 2009
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
A.T.A. GALLERY 992 VALENCIA ST. IN THE MISSION DISTRICT
Author of several books, most recently Nowtopia, Mission visionary Chris Carlsson returns from the World Social Forum in Brazil for a report-back on not only that momentous event, but also the auspicious transition of his ongoing Shaping San Francisco to the newly named and Wiki-enabled FoundSF. Chris is a fount of radical historical knowledge and enlightened proposals for the future of our fair City. His themes on the need for local autonomy resonate in a cine-essay that casts a probing, clear-eyed gaze at the landscape of California towns abandoned by the industries that created them—one-time boom-towns now haunted by the twilight of the American promise. PLUS Emperor Norton and other glimpses of the City’s history.
