This season of Schnitzer Cinema is largely devoted to three guest artists who show work that complements West of Center. As always, Schnitzer Cinema programs are a great deal for cinephiles, providing a movie followed by a live or Skype dialogue with a special guest, and popcorn and soda for all – all free of charge. Schnitzer Cinema programs are a presentation of the JSMA and Cinema Pacific.
Film and video artist Loren Sears will show and discuss a selection of his early work, including the Haight-Ashbury Quartet. Each of the four films in the quartet, which dates from 1967 to 1971, is a personal documentary that uses superimposition and optical printing to portray private and communal life in San Francisco.
