The Inner Struggle – On Film


800 Chestnut Street

San Francisco, CA, 94133

From Michael Emery’s nightmarish prize winning Cambium, to the perverse humor of Sal Giammona’s Fun With Birds, to the venting of aggression in Elizabeth Sher’s Beat It, the films on this program all deal in one way or another with the inner struggle and quest of the soul. There is the outrageously funny Eastern mystic’s search for enlightenment in Giammona’s Untitled and the facing up to the banal repetitiveness of life in the modern factory in Sim Sadler’s Suicide. Like your dreams, this program ranges from the scary, to the sublime, to light-hearted fun
