Way Bay -- Film Screenings

UC Berkeley Art Museum Pacific Film Archive

Continuous film screenings in the galleries showcase the Bay Area's rich history as an incubator for avant-garde and experimental cinema, beginning with a silent film that captures life on the streets of San Francisco just days before the 1906 earthquake destroyed much of the city. The exhibition also includes highlights from BAMPFA's extensive archive of video and audio recordings by artists working in the Bay Area, as well as an interactive postcard project devoted to poetry by Bay Area writers.

This is what SF/Arts curator Sura Wood had to say about Way Bay -- Film Screenings :

Samplings from BAMPFA's collection of locally made, avant-garde and experimental films are projected on monitors and hanging screens in the context of the museum's sprawling new survey of Bay Area art and cinema. "Junkopia," Chris Marker's short about the Emeryville mudflats shot while he was in town making "Sans Soleil," footage of Market St. shortly before the 1906 earthquake and a 16mm short by Canyon Cinema co-founder Bruce Baillie are featured.
