Chick Strand was one of the more renowned pioneers in the Bay Area experimental filmmaking community. Canyon Cinema was born in 1961 when Strand and Bruce Baillie began to show films outdoors in Canyon, California. She was a long time advocate of the art of avant-garde filmmaking and an inspiration to more than two generations of filmmakers. Her spirit lives on today with the continued growth of both Canyon Cinema and San Francisco Cinematheque. Both organizations have flourished over the past forty-eight years and this is a testimony to the passion and dedication of Chick Strand. Tonight’s program will include several of her films, including: By the Lake, Artificial Paradise, Coming Up For Air, Loose Ends, Cartoon le Mousse and others. (Dominic Angerame)
