This semi-annual celebration of our City’s history in fact also serves to launch two new publications!! Projection-artist Ben Woodproudly unveils Californias Hidden Mural, his well-researched report on the Ohlonemurals hidden behind the altar of Mission Dolores itself. Against odds, he managed to squeeze in behind the wooden reredos and lower a camera on a wire…and he GOT THE SHOTS of the indigenous designs still on the rear wall of the nave! He shares the results tonight, in conjunction with the formal publication of his account. In an uncanny coincidence, local maker Brian Favorite is here too with a saga of another Catholic church, his 18-min Parish. Sited in the Castro some 9 blocks west, Holy Redeemerrose to be a vibrant center for both gay and straight congregants in the midst of theAIDS crisis. AND: Anthony Buchanan also stakes his SF claim, releasing the first issue of CounterFlicks in tandem with his Charles Gatewood Archive screener–on another dear neighbor (from Bernal Heights) no longer with us. PLUS: Javier Briones’ El SonadorJulia Schroeder’s BrittsenseandSteve McQueen’s Bullitt, ofcourse
