LOST LANDSCAPES OF OAKLAND
Council Chambers: 11am—12:30pm
Join film archivist Rick Prelinger for the East Bay chapter of his acclaimed Lost Landscapes series: a montage of rediscovered and rarely-seen film clips showing the Oakland of yore, captured by amateurs, newsreel cameramen, and industrial filmmakers.
RICK PRELINGER is an archivist, writer, and filmmaker. In 1982, he founded Prelinger Archives, a collection of advertising, educational, industrial, and amateur films acquired by the Library of Congress in 2002. He is an associate professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
ALEX CRUSE (moderator) is a writer, educator, and interdisciplinary artist who lives in Oakland. She has been involved with the Prelinger Archives since the fall of 2012, where she began collaborative work as an analog film archivist. Currently, Cruse is helping to expand Lost Landscapes as both a cultural and philosophical project.
