Other Cinema in San Francisco presents Media Archaeology: MEGAN PRELINGER'S INSIDE THE MACHINE + STEREOSCOPIC SPECTACULAR

Our favorite meta-librarian Megan Prelinger shares a 20-min. illustrated demo of her meticulous meditation on the marvelous micro-worlds of mid-century Electronics. We celebrate her eye-popping publication with a floating ViewMaster reception; bring your book copy to be signed! Surfing this new wave of research into lost media-histories, our second half turns out THREE kinds of stereo systems(!!!), with Bryan Boyce’s Basement, Kathleen Quillian’s Stereo-Realist slides—her Life After War-Time just rescued from her family vault!—and Walter Funk’s enlightened Hologlyphic lesson on the incredible 3-D experiments in the USSR! PLUS a sneak peek at Amanda Dawn Christie’s Specters of Shortwave, Walter Cronkite’s uncanny de-construction of the cult movie Year 1999, and 16mm computer-film mash-ups.
