Admission: $10 Regular/$6 YBCA and SFC Members
Lewis Klahr in person
Presented in association with the Pacific Film Archive

Creating tirelessly since the late ’70s, Lewis Klahr has developed a drifting and dreamy style of collage animation that re-animates pop-cultural detritus—advertising, comic books, forgotten toys and games. His films discover an evocative world akin to that of professed inspiration Joseph Cornell. Begun in 2008, Klahr’s newest series, Prolix Satori, comprises a complex interleaving of artifacts, scenes and recurring musical tropes in his continuing exploration of love, loss and reflection on lives past.

NOTE: Klahr will also appear in person at Pacific Film Archive on Wednesday, November 30, with a completely different program of works. For details please see or
