In April, Canyon Cinema invited Guy Maddin to curate an evening of films from our collection for the 60th San Francisco International Film Festival. Maddin presented The Great Blondino and Other Delights, featuring work by Robert Nelson and William Wiley, Abigail Child, Daina Krumins, and Gary Goldberg. Though he was not able to attend in person, we used ritual magick to summon his spirit for an interview. You can read the full interview on our Tumblr here.
A few months ago, our friend Gerry Fialka sent a questionnaire he had conducted with Robert Nelson shortly before Nelson passed away in 2012. Consisting of Nelson’s handwritten responses to 49 questions, the document offers poignant observations on art, film, aging, memory and quite a few things in between. Read it in its entirety here.
Canyon Cinema 50 continues with screenings and collaborations in May. Better late than never–here’s what we’re doing this month.
Canyon Cinema is proud to be a community partner of CROSSROADS 2017, presented May 19th-May 21st at the Phyllis Wattis Theater by San Francisco Cinematheque and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art!
