Introduction by David Sherman. Dominic Angerame and Greta Snider in person.
David Sherman worked at Canyon Cinema from 1989 to 2001, and in 1993 began the artist collaboration Total Mobile Home, the first microcinema. He has selected a program of films that explore place and time through artists’ observations and others’ documentation. Archival and found footage, popular culture, and home movies are collaged or appropriated. Sherman’s To Re-edit the World is assembled from four boxes of film material and audiotapes made by Beat-era filmmaker Dion Vigné, reconstituting a lost history of San Francisco.
