"Craig Baldwin: Avant To Live," a conversation with Brett Kashmere and Steve Polta, with a screening of films by Craig Baldwin
In this online event, co-editors Brett Kashmere and Steve Polta discuss their work on the publication Avant to Live!, documenting the work of acclaimed filmmaker, curator, and Bay Area icon Craig Baldwin. They survey the book’s contents, give a visual presentation of anomalous artifacts from the obsessive self-documenter’s vast personal ephemera archive, share an excerpt from Baldwin’s newly digitized found-footage essay Wild Gunman (1978), and present an online premiere of Baldwin’s “lost/rediscovered” early Super 8 performance film, the barnstorming ‘70s cinema time capsule Stolen Movie(1976).
