Come Celebrate the Next MIAP10 Event with us!
7 MILLION FEET OF NITRATE NEWSFILM WAS JUST THE BEGINNING
When: 6:15 pm, Wednesday, December 4, 2013
Where: Michelson Theater, 721 Broadway, 6th floor, New York
Amazing film rediscoveries keep flowing from the University of South Carolina’s Moving Image Research Collections (MIRC): early sound newsreels, lost European silents, Vishniac microcinematography, Chinese documentaries, amateur masterpieces. Curator Heather Heckman presents a variety of unique films and discusses the archive’s digital-era initiatives and ongoing collaborations with MIAP. Highlights include 35mm restorations of NYC Street Scenes & Noises (1929) and, from 1931, one of the earliest film recordings of television images.
Bonus extra: media artist Bill Morrison introduces an excerpt of his new compilation film, The Great Flood, built from unique archival footage from MIRC.
This event is free and open to the public.
