33 Yo-Yo Tricks (1976)

On Thursday, September 17th, the Exploratorium in San Francisco will present “Scintillating 16mm: Newly Preserved Gems from American Archives,” a program of eight films from all corners of America. From Faces and Fortunes (1960), a sponsored film that uses animation and collage to extoll the benefits of brand recognition through the ages, to the appropriately titled 33 Yo-Yo Tricks (1976), the screening celebrates a love of cinematic technique and exploration.

Also on the program are short documentaries such as Tom Palazzolo’s Jerry’s (1976), a breakneck portrait of a Chicago deli owner; avant-garde films from Ian Hugo and Stuart Sherman; and Stop Cloning Around (1980) from amateur filmmaking legend Sid Laverents.

Please visit the Exploratorium’s website for a full program and details on how to attend.
