Rick Prelinger, Lost Landscapes of San Francisco, 10
The 10th annual screening of Rick Prelinger's archival tour of San Francisco's past (and anticipation of its future) happens again at San Francisco's historic Castro Theatre on December 9.
Combining favorites from past years with this year's footage discoveries, this feature-length program shows San Francisco's neighborhoods, infrastructures, celebrations and people from 01906 through the 01970s. New sequences this year include 01930s scenes in downtown taverns, New Deal labor graphics and an exuberant 01940s Labor Day parade, radical longshore workers, newly discovered World War II-era tourist-shot Kodachrome, residential neighborhood activities and much more.
As always, the audience makes the soundtrack at the glorious Castro Theatre! Come prepared to identify places, people and events; to ask questions; and to engage in spirited real-time repartee with fellow audience members.
About the Series:
The Seminars About Long-term Thinking were started in 02003 to build a coherent, compelling body of ideas about long-term thinking, to help nudge civilization toward Long Now's goal of making long-term thinking automatic and common instead of difficult and rare.
