We are also pleased to announce that Show Me The Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall, has been chosen as an official selection of the San Francisco International Film Festival! There will be two local screenings: April 18 at SFMOMA and April 21 at The Roxie Theater:
“Show Me the Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall is, before anything else, a celebration of Marshall’s indelible images of the rock gods and goddesses who changed the world … Marshall, who spent most of his life in San Francisco, was as raw and vérité an artist as Robert Frank or Larry Clark, but his photographs have a rock-dream quality. When you stare at his black-and-white images, which are classics of the era but unlike anyone else’s, there’s a disarming sense of who the great rock stars were when they stepped out of their roles.” — Owen Gleiberman, Variety
Specialty cocktails for our event will be provided by Yellow Rose Distilling.
