Upcoming Screenings -- A Second Final Rest: The History of San Francisco's Lost Cemeteries

  • As of June 2015, there are no new screenings scheduled.


I produced a four-minute video piece entitled Upheaval in July 2005 for the 40th anniversary celebration of San Francisco's Intersection for the Arts. Upheaval is an experimental meditation on the discovery of remains from San Francisco's City Cemetery (also known as Golden Gate Cemetery) that were uncovered in 1994 during the seismic retrofit and expansion of the The Palace of the Legion of Honor museum.
