With Hardly Strictly Bluegrass energizing San Francisco this weekend, Cinema Arts celebrates the synesthetic experience of cinema. Translating sound into responsive and harmonized imagery, visual music deepens the filmgoers’ sensory experiences. This collection features great experiments in animation, direct cinema, and light shows, as well as a rare documentary about a blind musician. Films include Blind Gary Davis (Harold Becker, 1964), Hoppity Pop (Norman McLaren, 1946), and Liquid Light Loops (Joshua Light Show, 1969/ 2009).
