Swirling, shifting, almost otherworldly, fog is a defining characteristic of San Francisco’s environment and a subject of intrigue for meteorologists, writers and artists. On October 2 and 3, Cinema Arts hosts the West Coast premiere of Cinema Artist-in-Residence Sam Green’s Fog City. Created in collaboration with cinematographer Andy Black, the work takes a poetic view of a complex natural phenomenon that for many months each year defines the psycho-geography of the Bay Area, and creates a meditative piece on the mystery and beauty of the fog. Following in the tradition of his most recent works, Green presents Fog City as a “live documentary,” narrating and cuing the film live, while New York-based band The Quavers share the stage, performing their original composition for the work.
