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.
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.
We've moved our talks to a virtual format, and to share them with a wider audience, the live streams are now public on the Long Now Live Stream page and YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
We continue to release media from all of our talks and you can follow the series by subscribing to the podcasts, watching the videos and highlights and connecting with Long Now on our social channels.
Long Now is able to continue our work thanks to the ongoing support of members and donors. Please consider joining our global community of long-term thinkers. Membership starts at just $8/month and takes two minutes to set up. Special one-time donations are also appreciated, and all of your support will help us foster more long-term thinking. Thank you so much.
