Kees Kino clippings

I curated this SF Cinematheque program of the film work of Weldon Kees, called Kees Kino, back in June. Just wanted to post the links to all the coverage of the show in one place.

* Kevin Killian posted a wonderful review of the evening in the comments field of James Reidel’s Kees bio (Vanished Act) on Amazon (scroll way down to find it, and purchase a copy of the book while you're at it). P.S. Also check out James Reidel's amazing Weldon Kees website.

* Susie Gerhard was kind enough to let me write about my curatorial process for the June 7th "Wednesday: Found" section of SF360.org. The piece is called Looking for Mr. Kees.

* Reyhan Harmanci interviewed me for this great June 8, 2006 SF Chronicle feature, MR. MYSTERIOUS: Weldon Kees Screening collects obscure films of poet/painter/artist who disappeared in 1955.

* And Johnny Ray Huston (who shares my fanaticism for Kees) penned this wonderful feature for the June 7th SF Bay Guardian, Light after darkness: Jenni Olson excavates the film life of late SF icon Weldon Kees.
