Known not only for his cinematic oeuvre, but also for his brilliant lectures on cooking, his fervent advocacy of experimental film, and his seminal role in founding the Austrian Film Museum and Anthology Film Archives, Peter Kubelka returns to the Bay Area for three lecture/screenings co-presented with Pacific Film Archive and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. “Metaphoric Films” features visually lush and aurally complex gems: his earliest, the lyrical Mosaik Im Vertrauen; the ever-timely de- and re-construction of tourism’s tyranny, Unsere Afrikareise; Pause!; and finally, his first film in twenty-six years, an ethnography of and for our time made from the detritus of advertising, Dichtung und Wahrheit (Poetry and Truth).
