A Tribute to Larry Moyer

static1.squarespace.jpg

Larry Moyer was a fixture on the Sausalito waterfront for more than forty years. An artist, filmmaker, photographer, raconteur, and close friend of Shel Silverstein, Larry spent his last years living on Shel’s old houseboat, Evil Eye. Larry passed away in 2016 at the age of 92.

This special program will feature clips of interviews and performances, along with a scene from Larry’s 1963 beatnik classic, The Moving Finger. Larry’s good friend and fellow Sausalitan Kayla Kahn will introduce the program, and there will be time for the audience to share stories after the screening.

One of the filmmakers behind the classic Sausalito waterfront story Last Free Ride, Saul Rouda filmed the tribulations of the houseboat community from 1968 to 1984. In his latest film project, Sausalito Seekers, Saul takes Sausalito's story a little deeper, flushing out the nasty and the sublime and touching on the existential, with help from Joe Tate, Bill Kirsch, Larry Moyer, Shel Silverstein, and a large supporting cast. This program will also feature the short film Waldo Point, along with several resurrected film portraits of the "good old days.”

Saul will be with us to introduce the films and answer questions. (2017, 69 minutes)
