The projections onto Coit Tower were a great success! Both evenings (the 25th and 26th) were warm and clear and a group came up to the tower to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Indian's of all tribes occupation of Alcatraz and to start a conversation about San Francisco's first people, the Ohlone. The press also showed up. CBS 5's, Don Knapp did a piece so did Dana King and Phil Matier. Anna Bloom also did a nice write up and video (see below).
I was in awe to play a small role in this event. Some of the films were:
-Alcatraz Is Not an Island (James Fortier)
-Rendezvouz with Alcatraz (Ben Wood & David Mark)
-Welcome to Ohlone Territory (Marlo Mckenzie and Neil Maclean)
Ohlone Families (Charlene Sul, Anthony Sul
-San Bruno Mountain (Keith Moreau and Sam Ellis Moreau)
-Native America segments by Lorenzo
