Warren Sonbert: Films of Three Decades

Filmmaker in person


800 Chestnut Street

San Francisco, CA, 94133

Warren Sonbert is one of America’s most productive independent filmmakers, and his work has been shown in museums and theaters throughout the world. Tonight he will premiere his newest film, Honor & Obey, (selected for the upcoming New York Film Festival), and show two earlier works, Hall of Mirrors (1966) and Divided Loyalties (1978). “What is unique is the never-consummated state of suspension that Sonbert achieves. Sonbert’s implied argument is that the pleasure of looking at, of dancing with, even of flirting with a thing can endure forever…”—Fred Camper, Chicago Reader.
