Portraits and Protests 

When: Wed., Sept. 27, 7 p.m. 2017
Phone: 510-642-0808
Abigail Child worked as a shipper at Canyon Cinema in 1977 and 1978. For her, “It was a time to look closely at films on the rewinds, or stay late and get a preview of incoming films. After that, I became coeditor with Henry Hills of Cinemanews magazine, and ultimately an editor of [at least] one edition.” This program features works made by Canyon members between 1970 and 1981—a diary film, a self-portrait, and a portrait—along with Child’s most recent film, a dazzling collage portrait of Emma Goldman that links her twentieth-century activism to modern-day protests.
