The Passions of Dominic Angerame

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts

A beloved and influential force for generations of San Francisco artists, filmmakers and students, Dominic Angerame stands in the tradition of the great North Beach cine-poets. Both rigorously formal and libidinally revealing, Angerame’s films construct transcendent moments and poetic metaphors from the landscapes and intimacies of the Bay Area. A unifying integrity runs through all of Angerame’s cinematic investigations, a tender and probing use of celluloid that speaks to our shared humanity, both loving and destructive. Tonight’s passions include Angerame’s new erotic trilogy Pixiscope, The Waifen Maiden and Consume; the beautiful urban diary I’d Rather Be In Paris; the haunting Line of Fire; the award-winning Continuum; and his poetic call to arms Battle Stations – A Navel Adventure. Live music and vocals will be performed by Barbara Jaspersen and Kevin Barnard. (Total Mobile Home)
