I Love $ by Johan van der Keuken


800 Chestnut Street

San Francisco, CA, 94133

Dutch filmmaker Johan van der Keuken works in the tradition of documentary that stretches from Jean Vigo through Joris Ivens to Chris Marker. His films take a radical esthetic perspective while retaining a lyricism that comes from his personal commitment to his subjects and resonate with social and emotional power. I Love $, van der Keuken’s 1986 feature, traces the secretive path of money as it travels from country to country, through banks and brokerages, in and out of the hands of the international dealers, and finally as it becomes the everyday object of those who spend it on the necessities of life. Presented through the cooperation of the Consulate-General of the Netherlands. Bay Area premiere.
