Wallace Berman Film Event at the Billy Wilder Theater on August 25, 2007

About a year ago I found some film footage underneath my studio table
– and alas it was a great find! I sent the footage to The Anthology
Film Archives in New York – and presto! What we have is "Artifactual:
Films from the Wallace Berman Collection."

U.C.L.A. Film & Television Archive will be screening "Artifactual" as
well as my Dad's film masterpiece "Aleph" on Saturday August 25th at
the Billy Wilder Theater in the Hammer Museum in Westwood Los Angeles.
The screening is set for 7:30 PM

The address is:

10899 Wilshire Blvd
at Westwood Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90024

arranged to have "Wallace Berman Photographs" (Edited by Kristine
McKenna and Lorraine Wild) and "Semina Culture: Wallace Berman and His
Circle" (Edited by Kristine McKenna and Michael Duncan) on sale at the
lobby of the Billy Wilder Theater before, during and after the
