What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Dubbed Radical Light, the history of local art film oddities ends up touching on pretty much every important social movement and technical innovation from the 1880s to the 1990s."—East Bay Express

"A voluminous book that distills everything you'd ever want to know about this genre, culled from 10 years of research. Consider this your avant-garde education, not to mention your duty as a resident of a bohemian city."—7x7 : Sf People, Stories+ Style

"In Radical Light, San Francisco's deep countercultural roots reemerge as an unbroken antitradition stretching from the postwar proto-Beats to the identitarian activists and small-gauge geeks at century's end."—Artforum

"[A] freewheeling sampler"—New York Times

"At just over 300 pages, captures an extraordinary history, with contributions by dozens of filmmakers, historians, critics and curators."—Kcet-Tv
