Jenni Olson is an acclaimed nonfiction filmmaker, writer, film curator, historian and collector based in San Francisco. Olson describes her contemplative film practice as a “completely impossible and yet partially successful effort to stop time.”

Multitalented performance artist Harriet "Harry" Dodge (By Hook or By Crook, Cecil B. Demented) brings to life this innovative story of a butch dyke in San Francisco searching for love and self-discovery. Against a backdrop of stunning landscape cinematography, this bold, lyrical voiceover film evolves from lesbian lust story to inventive documentary; delving into explicit descriptions of lesbian sexuality and offering up a quick look at Frank Capra's 1941 film Meet John Doe before embarking on the fascinating and previously untold history of the Golden Gate Bridge as a suicide landmark. A true San Francisco experience, The Joy of Life also includes poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti intoning his ode to the City by the Bay, "The Changing Light" and features music from legendary poet-painter (and probable Golden Gate suicide) Weldon Kees.

Entry requirements: no age restrictions
