Flashback: The Mother of All Streetfilms

3:58 PM PDT on May 3, 2012

Hey SF, Aaron is out with a nasty bug today, so to keep your content craving sated I thought I'd share this proto-Streetfilm from 2004, which Clarence Eckerson recently unearthed for a museum exhibit about the history of NYC activism. It's about the campaign to get cars out of Manhattan's Central Park. Anyone who lives in a city where cars regularly invade the flagship park can probably relate.

We may never see Clarence work in longform video again, at least until his dream project materializes -- a film about the decline of the paperboy. In the meantime, enjoy!

This just in: Clarence and John Hamilton are in the early stages of putting together a Streetfilm on the case for a car-free Golden Gate Park. Stay tuned.
