Film: Bruce Baillie: The Canyon Cinema Years

Time: 7:00 PM
Place: Keene State College, Putnam Lecture Hall, Redfern Arts Center
Price: Free
Ages: Older crowd

Irina leimbacher will introduce the program and the role of Canyon Cinema as an independent film producer and distributor. Bruce Baillie is the co-founder Canyon Cinema and is one of the most important west coast independent experimental filmmakers.
With early screenings on a sheet near Bruce's home in Canyon, California in 1961, Canyon Cinema began as an itinerant existence at various sites (including church basements, morgues, and backyards) across the bay area and quickly became a locus for community; a place where filmmakers and aspiring filmmakers could share their love of cinema.
This program is a celebration of Baillie's documentary and experimental work of the Canyon Cinema period.
 The seven films we are screening were made between 1961 and 1966. Among them is his first film, On Sundays, and the later Mass for the Dakota Sioux. In them, Baillie evokes San Francisco and its human and physical landscapes as no other filmmaker has done. The program concludes with Baillie's color masterpiece, Castro Street.
