What: opening of “GIFT” a film by Robin McKenna
When: October 25, 2019 | 7pm
Where: Opera Plaza, San Francisco
About the Event: Inspired by Lewis Hyde’s beloved bestseller The Gift: The Gift: How the Creative Spirit Transforms the World – released as a new edition on Sept 24th after over 35 years in print – GIFT is a richly cinematic tribute to something that can’t be measured or counted, bought or sold. Exploring the parallels between artists’ work and a gift economy, it’s a reflection on the creative process, the reasons we “labor in service of our gifts”, and a celebration of the imagination that begs the question: Is life about getting or giving?
