One of the delightfully enlightened sensibilities behind the world-changingInternet Archive, Rick Prelinger has invented a novel form of cinema in his audience-narrated Collective Memory events. Many are surely familiar with the dozen-plus Lost Landscapes he’s already presented, lovingly woven from rescued home movies of our own San Francisco.
But Rick also has a history with Detroit, and tonight we actively participate in the West Coast premiere of his latest exploration of that Motor City. Mixing amateur footage with industrial films, traversing work and leisure cultures, and montaging material from both Black and White communities, his program counters the “ruin porn” stereotypes of today’s Detroit with rich images of a vibrant multi-cultural city.
Come early for Michigan camaraderie, ambient cityscapes, and refreshments at the reception for Mr. Prelinger.
