The Green Fog (2017)
Directed by Guy Maddin
Presented by the UC Center for Film and Media Studies
Doors 3:30 PM / Start 4:00 PM @ The Mini Microcinema - 1329 Main St.
Using footage showcasing San Francisco, The Green Fog is a filmic tribute to the Bay Area in the form of a remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo. It revisits the close relationship between the city and Hitchcock’s movie through a montage of studio classics, 1950s noir, documentary and experimental films, and 1970s prime-time television. The only original content is the eponymous fog that Maddin has integrated into some of the scenes. Together with a score performed by the Kronos Quartet, the fog adds to the alienating effect of the montage, allowing viewers to engage with the various filmic archives and their mutual associations. Part of the UC Film series Archives in Motion: Film Documents. (63 min)
