Handmade Nation Screening in SF

Sunday Sept. 5th 2010 @ 2 PM – Yerba Buena Center For The Arts

The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts will present Handmade Nation, a documentary on the new American craft movement by Faythe Levine. This charmingly low-fi film documents the contemporary crafting community. These artists, crafters and designers marry historical techniques, punk and D.I.Y ethos while being influenced by traditional handiwork, modern aesthetics, and politics. (2009, 65 min, digital video)

YBCA is offering free admission to their galleries with a same-day film ticket, so this is a great opportunity to explore the do-it-yourself-inspired TechnoCRAFT exhibition and experience this unique film!
