Public Spaces, Personal Eye

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

As a filmmaker and cinephile, Dominic Angerame has been behind both the scenes and the lens. Tonight Cinematheque celebrates his twenty-five years at the helm of Canyon Cinema, our sister organization and the world-renowned distributor of experimental film, with an overview sampling of work from early urban sketches to his current project. Threads of eros, violence and melancholy weave through the cityscape in the following films: Demonstration (1968-1974), The Mystery of Life (as Discovered in Los Angeles) (1982), Freedom’s Skyway (1980), A Ticket Home (1982), Premonition (1995), Anaconda Targets (2004), In the Course of Human Events (1997), Consume (2003), and Untitled (work-in-progress.)
