Complete with a Grateful Dead documentary
The San Francisco International Film Festival’s 60th installment pays tribute to the Bay Area’s rich, multidimensional cultural legacy with fittingly idiosyncratic highlights including Amir Bar-Lev’s fresh-off-of-Sundance marathon Grateful Dead documentary Long Strange Trip and the world premiere of Thomas Riedelsheimer’s new Andy Goldsworthy documentary Leaning Into the Wind. The Green Fog—A San Francisco Fantasia, a reimagining of Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo by Guy Maddin that utilizes footage from films and TV shows shot in S.F., will be accompanied by a Jacob Garchik score performed live by Kronos Quartet—further proof that this city embraces originality like no other. April 5-19; sffilm.org.
