Robert Nelson is a Bay Area treasure and filmmaking legend. Known for prankster experimentalism and on-the-spot invention, the films of San Francisco native Robert Nelson are among the defining landmarks of the post-Beat American underground of the 1960s and 70s. Cinematheque is proud to honor Robert Nelson with this screening of classic and lesser-known films. [Please note: Robert Nelson’s presence at this screening is not confirmed]

King David (made with Mike Henderson, 1970/re-edited 2003)
