| FEB.17: BILL MORRISON’s DAWSON CITY: FROZEN TIME |
Bill (Decasia) Morrison appears in person to introduce this meditation on cinema’s past, piecing together the bizarre but true story of a long-lost collection of 533 nitrate film prints from the early 1900s! Located just south of the Arctic Circle, Dawson City became the center of the Canadian Gold Rush that brought in 100,000 prospectors. It was also the final stop for a distribution chain that sent prints to the Yukon. The films were seldom, if ever, returned. This collection was uncovered in 1978 when a bulldozer working its way through a parking lot dug up a cache of film cans. Morrison draws on these permafrost-protected dramas and newsreels, pairing them with interviews, historical photographs, and an enigmatic score by Sigur Rós collaborator and composer Alex Somers. Free Canadian beer to celebrate the launch of OtherZine#33! $8.

“PINK VS. ORANGE”This issue #33 of OTHERZINE incorporates the DNA of another San Francisco Bay-born radical publication, Bad Subjects.

President Donald Trump, his hair and skin alternating between various shades of orange/lemon yellow/yogurt pink, has galvanized American and global opposition to his policies, his insults, his general demeanor. And as “Orange is the New Black” reminded us, incarceration is always a risk for the disobedient and, perhaps, dissident.
