In collaboration with Dan Streible's Orphan Films efforts (http://www.nyu.edu/orphans), canny curator of the cultural memory, Rick Prelinger emerges from the vaults with a precious cache of newly unearthed amateur films: Southern sharecroppers, KKK parades, Japanese internees, and May Day demos. Megan Prelinger interprets a cabinet of curiosities from their SoMA library. Stephen Parr shares a 16mm selection from the SF Media Archive, including an amateur monster movie and treasures disinterred from the SF Dump. Craig Baldwin introduces an eye-popping Kodachrome travelog of a late-colonial cross-Africa excursion. Scott Stark’s 20-min. celluloid set unveils the discovered mid-century diaries of San Francisco families. The program is consummated with Joel Katz’ compelling cine-essay, Dear Carrie, unpacking the 20C Kodachrome chronologies of a courageous globe-trotting matron. PLUS: Free found slides, gratis wine, and Doug Katelus on Optigan. $7.77.
