Guest Curator Soumyaa Kapil Behrens and Oddball Films present a collection of films dug up from the archive on things which clog up our natural earth and that which we seek to extract from her. It will be a night full of inciting issues and wondrous adventure. Jacques Cousteau and his team go on the hunt for Spanish Gold in Sunken Treasure (1970) and Emmy award winning documentary filmmaker, Joan Konner asks tough questions in an excerpt of Danger: Radioactive Waste (1977). The historical footage of Open Pit Nickel Mining (1944) shows how violent and methodical mineral recovery is and the memorable environmental animation of D*sney’s The Litterbug (1961) features D*nald D*ck as our foppish guide through how and what we waste. Pepper the night with home movies rescued from the SF Dump and Flea Markets that illuminate the kind of gems that often get lost in our modern world and, finally, try and clear the air with The Run-Around (1970’s) through exaggeration, music and animation. It is sure to be a night of fantastic voyages through history, memory, air, land and sea.
