Both filmmakers will be present. Social Studies (1985) by Adam Zucker, 41 min. Adam Zucker (NYC) is co-curator of the New Filmmakers Showcase at the Collective for Living Cinema. “I wanted to explore the range of contradictions in my perceptions of foreign cultures, e.g. the conflicting sense of exoticism in third world countries and their utter poverty …But ultimately the film sets out to bring the diverse elements together. I wanted to stress the universality of the film’s themes.” — A.Z.

Working Class Chronicle (1985) by Jack Walsh, 45 min. Jack Walsh (SF) is a member of Canyon Cinema’s Board of Directors and has been making films since 1980. “This work developed from a desire to mix major film categories (narrative, documentary, experimental) with aspects of my personal history and its relationship to chronological history between 1954 and 1969. The film reconstructs the past through the organizing concept of selective memory, a past constructed through the use of diverse sources and materials.” — J.W
