Canyon Luminaries Program 1: Canyon Classics of the Bay Area

Curator and film scholar Irina Leimbacher will be in attendance

Canyon Classics of the Bay Area opens with early films by James Broughton (Mother’s Day) and Sidney Peterson (The Lead Shoes) that were screened at and supported by Frank Stauffacher’s legendary Art in Cinema series at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Then, moving from urban angst to celebrations of nature, we have short gems from the 1960s: Bruce Baillie’s single take of a rose-covered fence, All My Life, and Gunvor Nelson’s portrait of her young daughter, My Name is Oona. We conclude back in the city center with Ernie Gehr’s rigorous and unsettling silent city symphony Side/Walk/Shuttle.
