||THE FALL 2013 ISSUE OF OtherZine IS OUT NOW!|
|Welcome to our website for our ongoing series of experimental cinema in San Francisco. We show films every Saturday at ATA Gallery, 992 Valencia (@ 21st). Showtime 8:30pm, admission* $6.|
|SAT. 12/7: RAY HARRYHAUSEN + GERRY ANDERSON + COLBURN + ROURKE +
Honoring the passing of two titans of animation and puppetry, a pair of recent biographies anchor eye-popping pixilation work in their spirit. In its North American premiere is Martha Colburn’s masterful Metamorfoza, scored by the Rotterdam Philharmonic! Jeremy Rourke acts the puppet himself with his live “animation” of the projector in Who Goes There?. AND Vicki Bennett/PLU's The Golem, Janie Geiser’s The Red Book, Bruce Bickford/Frank Zappa’s Baby Snakes, and Willis O’Brien’s famously banned King Kong scenes. As to the featured docs: Leonard Nimoy narrates the stop-motion-magical Harryhausen Chronicles, and the BBC sends off Anderson in The Making of the 20th Century. Come early for “Two Rings” of Baldwin-mixed 16mm circus phantasmagoria, with 99-cent beer and free popcorn.

|OTHERZINE 25 IS LIVE!|
from Exploded View, David Sherman and Rebecca Barten
We have arrived at OtherZine 3.0! Enjoy writing from the following luminaries on our new site:
San Francisco "expats" and microcinema pioneers David Sherman and Rebecca Barten unveil their new exhibition space, Exploded View, in Tucson, Arizona, while Paolo Davanzo of Los Angeles' Echo Park Film Center brilliantly outlines how to start your own film center.
Archivist Jerry Tartaglia revels in the masking-tape materiality inherent to Jack Smith's films as he updates us on their restoration. Poet and musician Marc Olmsted introduces us to the venerable and enduring Robert Branaman, Beat artist and filmmaker, and Gerry Fialka muses on the artist as trickster. We also offer a little gem from the archives of Craig Baldwin.
Longtime contributor Molly Hankwitz considers the evolution of social practice and artistic resistance in her reviews of recent books by media activists Jesse Drew and Gregory Sholette.
Issue 25 is pleased to host three artist projects: Michael Betancourt deconstructs his own artistic process in articulating the glitch, Caroline Koebel reconsiders a letter from experimental-film matriarch Chick Strand (her video screens December 21), and Ben Wood embodies cinema's patriarch, Eadweard Muybridge (also at Other Cinema on September 21).
