Why Live Here? and others by Mark Street

California College of the Arts

Mark Street returns to San Francisco to show Why Live Here? (1996, 50 min.), which explores three characters’ reactions to new environments–San Francisco, Florida and Montana. Each character develops their own particular relationship to place: one moves back to help with a family business, another moves for the cultural climate, and a third moves for a temporary job. All confront notions of home and community in an age of unprecedented transience and instability. Also, Mark’s Winterwheat, Fractious Array and other earlier films.
