On Saturday May 5, ATA Gallery's flagship exhibition series OTHER CINEMA presents an evening in celebration of psycho-geography, with the world premiere of Valerie Soe's Chinese Gardens, a personal exploration of Port Townsend’s hidden history. Dan Boord and Luis Valdovino’s Chinese Ghost Story undertakes a similar excavation of the unknown Asian laborers who built the Western railroads. The debut of David Sherman’s Assassination in Dreamland correlates the McKinley assassination with the early history of cinema, while Gideon C. Kennedy and Marcus Rosentrater's Dick-George picks up on the Presidential tip with a '71 Nixon/Wallace photo-op. Chip Lord’s Une Ville de L’Avenir posits a future urbanism by hybridizing Alphaville with his own verité. In person, Bill Daniel’s Mission Bay at Night surveys that haunted SF shoreline. Head of the Californian Fortean Society, Skylaire Alfvegren rounds it out with her 45-min. The Secret Life of Southern California.
Come early to meet the makers, to witness Ben Wood’s 3-D Philippines Projection proposal, and drink in Frank Stauffacher’s 16mm Notes on the Port of St. Francis. Doors open at 8pm; screening at 8:30pm.
