World premiering is Jeffrey Skoller’s "The Unimagined Lives of Our Neighbors", a first-person remembrance from one of the first US sailors on the ground in post-atomic Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
From the very mouth of Skoller’s 92-year-old Berkeley neighbor, Joe Fischer, the tale-telling comes across in a riveting minimal mode, foregrounding the witnessing, the fragile personal narration of History and Place.
In its Bay Area debut, Rob Fatal’s (in person) autobiographical "Order Class Family Tribe" is also a masterful accounting--of the racial complexity of his Native/Latinx family–told through sub-titles!
Sky Hopinka’s "Dislocation Blues" also re-frames memory in the bittersweet recounting of last year’s Native stand-off at Standing Rock.
ALSO: A good portion of Anton Bielecki’s own family chronicle–-a poly-vocal archival collage about his grandmother’s escape from a Nazi work camp.
