Bancroft Library Roundtable: City of White Gold, San Francisco in the Gilded Age: Bringing Archival Images to Life through Film
Lecture | October 19 | 12-1 p.m. | Faculty Club, O'Neill Room
Geordie Lynch, filmmaker
Filmmaker Geordie Lynch will discuss his film-in-progress, City of White Gold, and how the discovery of silver in 1859 transformed San Francisco from a backwater boomtown into a world-class metropolis. It is a tale of the epic struggle for wealth and power in the West. The director will also detail the fine points of enriching a historical documentary with stunning and exciting visual imagery.
