Screening of 6-min. Documentary on Lloyd This Thursday at Stanford

About a month ago, a crew of MFA students from the Documentary Film & Video program of the art department at Stanford came out to Bolinas for 3 days, interviewed me, and shot it in 16 mm color film (celluloid!) This Thursday night there will be a screening of 8 documentaries, including LK’s (6 min.), at Annenberg Auditorium, 435 Lasuen Mall, Stanford, CA 94305. They shot me talking about building one’s own house, the ’60s,  skateboarding, turning the compost pile, working in my shop, washing dishes. Info on screening here.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.
