Canyon Cinema Nights

Mechanix of Nature

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

Diane Kitchen managed Canyon Cinema during a turbulent period in the late 1970s, and helped guide a stabilize it into its position as a premiere artists’ organization. Kitchen is now on the faculty at University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee. She has selected eight films from Canyon’s catalogue–favorites, unknowns and a wild card– which draw their images from natural settings: Six Windows by Marjorie Keller; Windowmobile by James Broughton and Joel Singer; Fuji by Robert Breer; Seven Days by Chris Welsby; Skyworks, The Red Mile by Le Ann Bartok; Fog Line by Larry Gottheim; Still Life by Bette Gordon and Time and Places by Art Zipperer.
