The Bay’s best loved librarian christens our now-regular Archive Evening with Centers and Edges: Home Movie Revelations and Provocations.
With these elliptical, vernacular histories of deviant behaviors, Rick finally unveils—and live narrates!—long-hidden footage that will surprise...even shock: Booze parties of failed St. Louis contractors, naïve surrealism from Detroit POV shooters, and the first part of his Greater Mexico project—the Southwest desert filmed in the 30s, but never publically screened until now.
Opening: The SF-based Internet Archive, truly a godsend for human cultural history, scans and makes freely available both amateur and industrial films of practically every format. Insiders Tim Johnson and LX Rudis share some of the most anomalous entries in its motion picture collection, including Isaac Asimov’s Artificial Man, The Internet in 1998, Experiments in Motion Graphics, and four other fragments...some re-mixed!! Free Civil Defense crackers.
