SAN FRANCISCO CABLE CARS
SUNDAY, APRIL 9 • 4:15
IN PERSON: FILMMAKER STREPHON TAYLOR
Bay Area filmmaker Strephon Taylor will present and discuss a screening of his new documentary about one of San Francisco’s most recognizable icons, the cable car. His film explores the fascinating history and technology of this 140-year-old tradition that is at the heart of the city’s romance. It’s a tale that begins with Andrew Smith Hallidie’s idea after witnessing a horse-car accident, continuing with the launch of the first line on Clay Street in 1873, the near-destruction of the lines in the 1906 earthquake, and the fight led by Friedel Klussmann and women’s civic groups in 1947 to save and preserve this San Francisco tradition. It’s a ride worth taking! Producer: Heather Taylor. Writer/Director: Strephon Taylor. (US 2017) 93 min. plus discussion.
