Lost Landscapes of San Francisco

Rick Prelinger is a guerrilla archivist who collects the uncollected and makes it accessible. Prelinger will be presenting his third annual "Lost Landscapes of San Francisco" event, an eclectic montage of lost and rarely-seen film clips showing life, landscapes and labor in a vanished San Francisco as captured by amateurs, newsreel cameramen and industrial filmmakers.

We encourage the audience to interact with the film, especially to identify mystery scenes! After the event will be a reception and holiday party at The Long Now Museum and Store. The Prelingers, Long Now's staff and board will be on hand, and we plan to continue to project footage from the Prelinger Archive on every surface we can. There will be some light snacks and wine served.

The Seminars About Long-term Thinking were started in 02003 to build a coherent, compelling body of ideas about long-term thinking, to help nudge civilization toward Long Now's goal of making long-term thinking automatic and common instead of difficult and rare.

Seminar hosted by Stewart Brand.
