Photograph Of Jesus at Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

I was very very chuffed to have Photograph Of Jesus screened in this special programme by Gary Meyer.

It was held (and sold out!) at the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, as part of the Cinema Mon Amour series.

Gary Meyer Selects: Trailers and Short Films
17 August, 2016

Here’s the description from the BAMPFA website:

‘Join us for a tour through my life of going to the movies. The selection ranges from George Méliès to Gunvor Nelson, Norman McLaren to Stan Brakhage, Alfred Hitchcock to Mel Brooks, and much more in a program of classic and contemporary short films guaranteed to be hilarious, experimental, thought-provoking, animated, outrageous, and inspiring. Many are about the experience of cinema itself. There will also be rarely seen trailers that defy our expectations of what we expect from “previews of coming attractions.” An evening of surprises! —Gary Meyer’

In this article, Gary explains a bit about his thoughts behind programming the show:


‘The UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive is the visual arts center of the University of California, Berkeley, the nation’s leading public research university. Our mission is to inspire the imagination and ignite critical dialogue through art and film, engaging audiences from the UC Berkeley campus, the Bay Area, and beyond. Each year BAMPFA presents more than twenty art exhibitions, 450 film programs, and dozens of performances, as well as lectures, symposia, and tours.’
