KQED is hosting an abstract film about the de Young Museum.
The 9 minute film is by Peter Max Lawrence.
It has the look and feel of a Jeremy Blake piece. No dialogue, no narrative - the images are purely visual artifacts, collected and combined in a rhythmic pattern and accompanied by a single ambient piano score by David Moore. The blurry abstract passages alternate with time-lapse images of the building, the visitors, and the grounds. It could almost be considered a music video.
And speaking of film, today's the opening of the 10th San Francisco Independent Film Festival!
