A Cinematic Study of Fog in San Francisco
November 9, 2013–June 29, 2014
Acclaimed filmmaker Sam Green and cinematographer Andy Black present a video work in OMCA’s Gallery of California Art based on their ongoing investigation of fog—a remarkable weather phenomenon that profoundly characterizes the San Francisco Bay.
Known for their work together on the Academy Award-nominated film The Weather Underground and other pioneering, experimental documentary features, Green and Black showcase a visually compelling experience of fog and the rich feelings it evokes.
At once sublime, quirky, and deeply existential, A Cinematic Study of Fog in San Francisco heightens our awareness of our environment and highlights how the complex systems of wind, air, and water around us engage the life of our minds and stir emotions. A Cinematic Study of Fog in San Francisco is presented in partnership with the Exploratorium’s Bay Observatory and Cinema Arts Program.
