"Lulu in Berlin" screening / "Pandora's Box" screening

I just found out . . . .  Richard Leacock's fascinating documentary, Lulu in Berlin, will be screened at the De Young Museum as part of a "Leacock / Pennebaker: Pioneers of Cinema Verite" series taking place in San Francisco. Leacock's 1984 film will be shown at the De Young Museum (in Golden Gate Park) on Thursday, March 2nd at 7:30 pm. And what's more, Richard Leacock will be on hand to introduce the film. If you are a Louise Brooks fan, and haven't seen this film, you should! The series is sponsored by the Documentary Film Institute, which is part of the International center for the Arts at San Francisco State University. Tickets can be had for $10.00 through

I've just heard that a newly struck print of Pandora's Box will be shown at the historic Castro Theater as part of the annual San Francisco Silent Film Festival in July. This year, the festival will take place on July 14 - 16. Pandora's Box will likely be shown on Saturday, the 15th. More about the festival (though this year's schedule has not been posted) can be found at      I am very excitied to see this screening. And you can bet I will be there.

And some more late breaking news . . . . Another new book about Louise Brooks - this one published in Austria - is due out near the end of the year!
