Before becoming an accomplished painter and blues guitarist, Mike Henderson studied with Robert Nelson in the SFAI Film Department; between the 1960s and 1980s he sustained a filmmaking practice, creating a remarkable body of work that renders black experience and the joys and struggles of making art with humor and idiosyncrasy. He joins us to present his film The Shape of Things alongside canonical work from Nelson and George Kuchar, two of the filmmakers and teachers most closely associated with film at SFAI, and Bruce Conner, whose work and legacy has helped to define alternative cinema in the Bay Area.
