PSYCHO-GEOGRAPHY
SAT. 10/4: PRELINGER’s YESTERDAY AND TOMORROW IN DETROIT +
One of the delightfully enlightened sensibilities behind the world-changing Internet 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 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. $8.
OTHERZINE
OUT NOW: FALL 2014 ISSUE OF OtherZine
Welcome to Issue 27: FRAME LINES! Our wonderful contributors have again formed a remarkably cohesive issue that sits at the intersection of radically different trajectories, histories, and purposes. The frame line, an often-unused portion of motion picture film separating two adjacent images, emerged as a convergent metaphor, characterizing the purpose, stakes, or even the subject of each article. We hope that Issue 27 will open a space to renegotiate frame lines, be they historical, political, dialectical, or literal! We specifically encourage use of our Comments section to continue navigating and exploding the diverse frameworks and their interstices.

Beginning our Frame Lines collection, Clint Enns poses a series of frank and worthy questions for every film and video programmer, while Michael Betancourt offers a refreshing reconsideration of medium specificity in critical contexts. Carla Leshne follows this up with a case study in the history of the fine line between film and labor by detailing the nearly forgotten histories of Lester Balog's films and screenings with the Film and Photo League.

Interviewing, we have Tara Nelson querying the themes and times of NorCal born and educated animator, Victor Faccinto, while Martin Rumsby discursively inquires experimental filmmakers across the net on East Coast/West Coast aesthetics, phantoms, and much more.

Veteran contributors David Cox and Mike Mosher offer reverent analyses of key media-makers through different media: respectively, an in-depth look at Harun Farocki's (who sadly passed this year) theories and praxis through his film, Images of the World: Inscriptions of War, and the recently published George Kuchar: Interviews and Conversations.

Finally, OtherZine is proud to host three Artist Projects, each made within/about the Bay Area! Nik Nerburn hacks away at the colonial history of Paul Bunyan in his 'zine, In the Shadow of Paul Bunyan. Collin McKelvey offers a full-length audio recording of his live sound performance at the final iteration of John Davis'/Kala Art Institute's Gravity Spells, a live a/v performance series, made in collaboration with Oakland-based filmmaker, Tooth. Last, but far from least, Dana Smith truly brings us home with her Mission Miracle Mile Trilogy, an experimental photo-book documenting the Mission District in all its splendor and glory!
