When: Nov. 9-June 29 2014
The Bay Area’s most defining weather phenomenon gets a close examination in the Oakland Museum of California’s (1000 Oak St.) new video exhibition, A Cinematic Study of Fog in San Francisco. Created by filmmaker Sam Green and cinematographer Andy Black (of The Weather Underground fame), the ten-minute video explores how we romanticize the wind, air, and water systems. It includes interviews with fog novices, like tourists whose views of the Golden Gate Bridge are obscured, as well as experts like meteorologist Jan Null who explains what fog is. While watching dramatic shots of the climate sensation rolling in over the hills, viewers can let the filmmakers envelop you in its misty haze.
