Incite.../Insight! Free Film Events
We are proud to announce a collaboration between Shaping San Francisco, The New Nothing Cinema, and the Anthropology and Social Change Department at C.I.I.S. We will screen a film once a month with the focus being on local activism and political history. Held monthly at New Nothing Cinema, 16 Sherman Alley (near Folsom and 7th), on dates listed in calendar below. Screenings will resume in September 2013.
Chris Carlsson will present a historic look at the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, how it has changed over time, going from two-way traffic on the top deck (3 lanes in each direction) with trains and trucks on the lower deck, to today's new span. The halfway-across-the-bay bike lane will get a close look too.
