San Francisco Cinematheque Presents:
POSTWAR: JEFFREY SKOLLER ON DANIEL EISENBERG
Thu, Nov 3 • 7:30pm • Screening Room
Daniel Eisenberg and Jeffrey Skoller in Person
presented in association with the Pacific Film Archive
Tonight’s screening celebrates the publication of Postwar: The Films of Daniel Eisenberg, published by Black Dog Publishing and edited by Jeffrey Skoller. As works of visual history, Eisenberg’s films explore how the meanings of events transform over time. Tonight we screen Eisenberg’s 1997 film Persistence, which combines footage of a circa-1946 war-devastated Berlin shot both by U. S. Army cameramen and Roberto Rossellini in the creation of his Germany Year Zero, with Eisenberg’s own documentation of that city in the early 1990s.
