Lost Landscapes of San Francisco, 15

Rick Prelinger is the founder of the Prelinger Archives in San Francisco, whose moving image holdings may be found online at www.archive.org. With Megan Prelinger, he co-founded Prelinger Library (www.prelingerlibrary.org), a publicly-available collection of historical periodicals, books, print ephemera, maps and government documents.

This year, we are delighted to bring you LOST LANDSCAPES OF SAN FRANCISCO streamed live online!

Filmmaker Rick Prelinger curates exciting archival film footage, historical clips, and vintage home movie discoveries along with evergreen favorites for this feature-length movie premiere. Lost Landscapes reveals San Francisco's people, neighborhoods, infrastructures and celebrations from Rick's unique archivist's perspective, with material ranging widely in time from the early 20th century through the 01980s.

Rick will be joining us live on chat with you, the audience, so come prepared to identify places, people and events, to ask questions and to engage in spirited real-time repartee with fellow viewers.
