Canyon Cinema Salon – Lynn Marie Kirby – Monday, March 7, 2016


Please join Canyon Cinema on the evening of Monday March 7, 2016 at New Nothing Cinema for the next installment in our Salon series. This month, we’re pleased to welcome filmmaker and teacher Lynn Marie Kirby.

This evening’s selection of films is made by filmmakers across generations, and communities. Three of the works are made by current California College of the Arts graduate students, one a recent graduate of CCA, and three of the films are made by filmmakers who attended the graduate program at the San Francisco Art Institute in the late 70’s and into the 80’s. Each group of filmmakers worked on one another’s films, and contributed as part of a close community, exploring ideas around cinema, contemporary culture and the effects of history, gender roles and family. Sharon Couzin brings to the program the broader dialogue of filmmaking in the US and Europe in the early 1980s.

—Lynn Marie Kirby, curator for the evening
