San Francisco Film Society Presents:

SF360 Film+Club: Handmade Nation

March 11 at Mezzanine

Ticket and Event information at

SF360 Film+Club, the Film Society’s acclaimed social screening series, returns with Faythe Levine’s documentary Handmade Nation, following a movement of artists, crafters and designers that imbue traditional handiwork techniques with a punky do-it-yourself ethos. The film explores the burgeoning art community of indie crafters via interviews in the studios and homes of noted and independent artists. Levine also details how the Internet has spurred a once underground movement and how crafts have expanded to connect with the greater public through boutiques, galleries and fairs.

Lisa Congdon, owner of Rare Device, and Tina Barseghian, editor-in-chief of Craft magazine, as well as several others involved in the movement, are expected to attend. There will also be a collection of artists and vendors selling their work.

Tickets are $8 for SFFS members and $12 for non-members; must be 21+ to attend. Mezzanine is located at 444 Jessie Street in San Francisco.
