Lost Landscapes a night with Rick Prelinger.

  • Comfort Station 2579 North Milwaukee Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

Comfort Film in partnership with the Film Studies Center at the University of Chicago presents:

Lost Landscapes a night with Rick Prelinger.

Rick Prelinger will present selections from Lost Landscapes of San Francisco film. He will be in attendance. 

Rick Prelinger is an archivist, filmmaker, and educator. He teaches at UC Santa Cruz and is a board member of Internet Archive. His films made from archival material have played at festivals, museums, theaters, and educational institutions around the world. Lost Landscapes of San Francisco (11 episodes, 2006-2016) plays every autumn in San Francisco. He has also made urban history films in Oakland and Detroit, and is currently producing a New York film for an autumn premiere. He thanks Internet Archive and its staff for making this film possible. 

If you ever used moving images, audio or images from the Internet Archive this would be a good screening to come to and thank Rick Prelinger for that.

Programmed by Raul Benitez and Nando Espinosa Herrera.
