Speaking Directly: Book Launch and Screening!
While known primarily as an exhibitor of artist-made films, San Francisco Cinematheque has, throughout its history, created opportunities for talking and writing about the challenging and lively work that it showcases. Come celebrate our renewed commitment to independent publishing with a book launch and screening at Alley Cat Books. Cinematheque's "occasional" journal Cinematograph is back, after a long hiatus, with an illuminating book-length issue, comprised of extensive conversations with filmmakers, artists, curators, and scholars. Titled Cinematograph 7: Speaking DirectlyOral Histories of the Moving Image, it presents recent discussions with Coleen Fitzgibbon, Narcisa Hirsch, Jim Jennings, Chris Kennedy, Kerry Laitala, Annette Michelson, Tomonari Nishikawa, Elizabeth Price, Ben Rivers and Kidlat Tahimik. Interviewers include Erika Balsom, Kathy Geritz, Sandra Gibson, Aily Nash, Luis Recoder, Lucy Reynolds, Jonathan Walley and Mark Webber. The issue also has never-before-published excerpts from Q&A sessions with Peter Hutton, George Kuchar, Owen Land and Warren Sonbert, drawn from Cinematheque's archive of historical artifacts and documentation. Join issue editor Federico Windhausen at a Valentine's Day screening party at Alley Cat to feature films and videos by Fitzgibbon, Kuchar, Nishikawa and other interviewees. Expect surprise appearances by local luminaries and contributors, as well as a few giveaways. (Federico Windhausen)
