FEB.24: LIZ KEIM on MABUHAY + DARR + BIVOULAB + |
A treasured programming thread returns with the first of 3 Psycho-Geographies, this one ALL SAN FRANCISCO! Spot-lit is Liz Keim in person with her historic (now being restored)In the Red, co-directed with Karen Merchant in 1979, about the punk scene around the Mabuhay Gardens. AND in his Red Delicious multi-media performance, Brian Darr focuses on a neighborhood just down the hill—the Embarcadero warehouse district, location for Jules Dassin’s Thieves Highway in his 1949 proletarian noir. Brian mixes slides from Dassin’s feature, amongst a half-dozen other sources, to spin out the history of the Hollywood Ten ( Dassin was targeted in the anti-communist witch-hunt). ALSO: Bivoulab (David Cox and Molly Hankwitz) conjure a San Faux Cisco, a 25-min. clip-tour of the City as pictured on video games and other virtual platforms! PLUS Kerry Laitala’s (in person) City Blights, Bill Daniel’s Mission Bay, Sam Green’s N-Judah, and Bryan Boyce’s More Is on the Way. Free postcards, toast, and jam.
