San Francisco Cinematheque: Four Decades of Film & Video

Program 3: 1971-1981, Outside Influences and Local Masters

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

Reflecting Cinematheque’s shift from a primarily local exhibitor to one equally incorporating artists working nationally and internationally, this program focuses on the concentrated and stylistically formal approach to films which increasingly dominated Cinematheque programs during these years: Night Movie #1 (Self Portrait) by Diana Barrie, The Bladderwort Document by Janis Crystal Lipzin, Flight of Shadows by Michael Mideke, The Riddle of Lumen by Stan Brakhage, Fuji by Robert Breer, Shift by Ernie Gehr, 31/75: Asyl by Kurt Kren, Masquerade by Lawrence Jordan, The Gardener of Eden by James Broughton and Joel Singer and Hollis Frampton’s Gloria!
