Introduced by Dominic Angerame, Steve Anker, Irina Leimbacher and other guests to be announced.
Presented by San Francisco Cinematheque in association with Canyon Cinema

Chick Strand was a longtime advocate of the art of avant-garde filmmaking and an inspiration to more than two generations of filmmakers. Canyon Cinema—a San Francisco–based filmmakers' cooperative specializing in the distribution of avant-garde and experimental film—was born in 1961 when Strand and Bruce Baillie began to show films outdoors in Canyon, California. Strand’s spirit lives on today with the continued growth of both Canyon Cinema and San Francisco Cinematheque. Both organizations have flourished for nearly 50 years, a testimony to the passion and dedication of Chick Strand. Tonight’s program will include several of her films including By the Lake, Artificial Paradise, Coming Up For Air, Loose Ends and Cartoon le Mousse. —Dominic Angerame, Curator
