This is the third in a series of monthly screenings comprising a complete retrospective of the work of Dominic Angerame. Since 1968 Angerame has produced more than 30 films on 16mm and several newer works in digital format. Some of these films have never had a public screening. Many of Angerame’s films show San Francisco, the city he has lived and worked in since 1979, and its varying cityscape as it looks and changes over time. He has also created short comedies, short-form documentaries and many diary films. Angerame has taught film in many schools and universities in the Bay Area as well as at the University of Nevada, Reno. He was Executive Director of Canyon Cinema from 1980-2012.
For this third screening we will present a compelling program of mid-career work that wrestles with the adverse forces of desire and death. All (but one) of them shot and shown on 16mm film, including several diary films that have never been shown publicly before. The program includes Anaconda Targets (2004), Consume (2003), The Waifen Maiden (2003), Pixiescope (2003), Battlestations: A Naval Adventure (2002), Phone/Film Portraits (1985), Voyeuristic Tendencies (1984), Hit the Turnpike (1984), and various unreleased diary films.
