Arguably America's most enlightened mind on Archival Film and 20C informational literature, we're honored to host the mastermind of the SF-based Internet Archive, Mr. Rick Prelinger, with another incandescent exchange on cultural history and its easy and useful access. His talk turns away from the idea of "repositories of the past" towards understanding archives as pointers to the future. And on that note: Here Come the Librarians--Mark Wilson, Brain Darr, Claire Bain--our activist cultural saviors fer sure, with a 40-min. opener on the SF Public Library's film collection! YOW!! We're in for some City-owned 16mm treats, plus a marvelous personal-research story on the Ghost-Book of Charles S. Capp (Street). And HEY!: Bring books to give away at our annual Potlatch, and take Others home! *$8 if book-bound or $9 if not.
