Dialogues in the Dark

Program 10: Out of the Blue, Films by Michael Rosas-Walsh and Friends

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

The films of Michael Rosas-Walsh continue the tradition of such Bay Area icons as Robert Nelson and Dean Snider, whose works reflect passionate lives and serious cinematic commitment while remaining entertaining and ripe with humor, taking a funky approach to form. Tonight MRW presents a veritable festival of short works representing these local luminaries and others. Program includes his own films Raw, Luv, JACE, Alaskan Opus in D, Skipp Forrest Crow, and Lake Orion; Nelson’s Hot Leatherette; Snider’s Stink; Diane Kitchen’s The Penfield Road; Adriana Rosas-Walsh’s No Words; Rob Yeo’s Winterships; George Kuchar’s Visitation Rights; Rock Ross’ Psycho Porpoise; and the Rosas-Walsh/Ross collaboration Thoughtless. Come early for live music from The Goat Family! (Steve Polta)
