Rick Prelinger
Hidden gems of vintage footage reveal our cool San Francisco vibe - come see & get inspired!

This year’s LOST LANDSCAPES (the 18th!) sets the Bay in motion, revolving around the myriad mobilities and means of communication that have kept Californians in touch with each other. Casting an archival gaze on San Francisco and its surrounding areas, the film revels in the textures and activities of everyday life, work and celebration, replaying known and unknown historical moments, daylighting lost and found infrastructures, revealing the scars of settlement and pointing to more hopeful futures.

This year’s film is drawn from over 3,000 archival films newly scanned in the past year, including home movies, government-produced and industrial films, feature film outtakes and other surprises from the Prelinger Archives collection and elsewhere.

Each year, LOST LANDSCAPES Patron Tickets support about 25% of Prelinger Library’s annual budget. Please consider supporting this famed experimental research library, now in its 20th year, that provides access to artists, historians, community members, researchers and readers of all kinds!

About Long Now
Our mission at The Long Now Foundation is to foster long-term thinking and responsibility. Recognizing that many problems of global magnitude can be traced back to a lack of long-term perspective, we offer a counterpoint to today’s pervasive “faster and cheaper” mindset.

Through a variety of creative programs that foster dialog between the arts, culture, history, science and technology, we encourage thoughtful conversation to help generate ideas and insights that will benefit society within the framework of the next 10,000 years. Long Now works to expand our collective sense of the present moment: rather than focus only on the immediate “here and now,” we encourage people to become aware of the Big Here and the Long Now.

We are a member and donor supported non-profit organization. You can find more about us online and through our Long Now Newsletter, a twice-monthly dispatch from the world of long-term thinking.
