Titles of films to be shown include Kissing Rocks, Reticent Roommate, The Naughty Fauns, Boy From Planet Q and many others.

>span class="s1">In 2010, upon receiving ownership of the rights to Bob Mizer's entire film and video work, the The Bob Mizer Foundation was granted the opportunity and responsibility of presenting this permanent collection of Bob Mizer's work in the most authoritative and accessible manner possible, for both general and scholarly audiences.
We invite the public to swing by and take part in viewing some rarely seen films by Mizer. This is the beginning of a monthly film series that we will host every First Thursday Artwalk.
About The Bob Mizer Foundation: Located in San Francisco California, the Bob Mizer Film Archive is the world’s largest repository of original moving images documenting the twentieth century underground physique movement. Spanning five decades (1942-1992), the BMF Archive documents the evolving landscape of Postwar sexual mores through the lens of pioneering artist Bob Mizer. With over 3000 film masters and one million still images, this immense body of work was directly and indirectly instrumental in overcoming legal obstacles to basic human rights regarding censorship and enjoyment of basic personal freedoms. The Bob Mizer Foundation is dedicated to the promotion and preservation of progressive and controversial photography. It is our belief that the most disputed works of art are the most important to the progress of society. The Foundation spurs thought and discussion through the protection and dissemination of photographic material that has been discriminated against, censored or otherwise marginalized.
