This is the twelfth year of Lost Landscapes of San Francisco, the annual archival film program that celebrates San Francisco’s past and looks towards its future!

Combining favorites from past years with this year’s footage discoveries, this feature-length program shows San Francisco's neighborhoods, infrastructures, celebrations and people from the early 20th century through the 01970s.

New sequences this year include North Beach clubs and nightlife, colorful New Deal labor graphics, early BART footage, a scooters’ rights demonstration, dunes in the Sunset, Barbra Streisand and Ryan O’Neal shooting WHAT’S UP DOC? on location in the Richmond District, more footage of the mysterious Running Man in Chinatown and on Nob Hill, Bay Area activism, Latino families dancing on Ocean Beach, and much, much more.

Founded by Megan & Rick Prelinger in 02004, the Prelinger Library contains over 60,000 books, periodicals, maps and ephemeral print items available for research and reuse. This famed experimental research library supports artists, historians, community members, and researchers of all kinds.

Stewart Brand's Summary will be posted after the Seminar takes place.
