Lynne Sachs At Other Cinema
This is kind of a last minute notice, but I only just got the screening calender for the legendary Other Cinema series in San Francisco in the mail today. But experimental documentarian Lynne Sachs will be presenting a combination screening and spoken word event that will explore her “decade-long artistic — rather than physical — immersion in war.” She’s covered topics “from Vietnam to Bosnia to WWII-occupied Rome to the Middle East.” Other Cinema doesn’t say exactly which films Sachs will be screening, but this event sounds like a real treat regardless.
On her website, Sachs lists a filmography of 19 films, plus one currently in production. Personally, I’ve only seen half of one of her films, Investigation of a Flame. However, the chance to see a Fred Phelps protest live and in person was too juicy to skip. Sorry, Lynne.
Next week, Other Cinema is holding a special horror shorts night, but I’ll post up the details for that later.
