Born 1949, Albany, New York; lives in San Francisco, California

As a filmmaker and longtime director of Canyon Cinema in San Francisco, Dominic Angerame has been an influential figure in experimental film for more than twenty years. From 1987 to 1997, he made a group of five films collectively titled City Symphony (an homage to such pioneering filmmakers as Walter Ruttmann and Dziga Vertov working in the 1920s and 1930s) that focused on the constructed human environment, industrial decay, and the dehumanizing aspects of technological mechanization. Deconstruction Sight (1990), for example, shows workers on contemporary construction sites as diminutive drones that vanish behind heavy tools and giant machinery.
