LOST & FOUND FILM CLUB: An Evening with The Space Lady (Live concert + 16mm shorts mix!)

Co-presented by FAR OFF SOUNDS.

Join us for a night of cosmic synthesizer sounds and 16mm shorts from the outer limits of filmmaking. Orbiting to the Cinefamily LIVE from a distant galaxy known as San Francisco comes the legendary street performer and interstellar sensation The Space Lady. After years of stopping people in their tracks and transporting them to dimensions unknown with the help of her winged helmet and Casiotone, The Space Lady aka Susan Dietrich Schneider became a staple of the Bay Area outsider music scene. Her ethereal, echo-laden arrangements transform popular interstellar standards “Major Tom” and “Radar Love,” while originals like “Synthesize Me” have won her a new generation of starry-eyed admirers via her recent “greatest hits” compilation. Now that she’s touring, we’re proud to welcome a rarely-seen star of our solar system for an unforgettable night of music. Plus, we’ll dig into our archives to present a mix of spaced-out films on NASA, zero-gravity, relativity, and the Moon, like the extra-terrestrial-filled Arthur C. Clarke adaptation Rescue Party. Blast-off!
Rescue Party Dir. Bernard Wilets, 1978, 16mm, 25 min.
