AMIA’s Archival Screening Night 2019

Sunday, October 27, 2019, 2 p.m., Dryden Theatre

(1913–1988, 110 min. total run time, DCP)

World Day for Audiovisual Heritage. Archival Screening Night has been the centerpiece of every Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) conference since 1991. For the first time ever, this event usually available only to AMIA members is being made accessible to the public. Now, everyone can see the incredible, strange, astonishing, hilarious, and curious treasures from the world’s moving image archives. Composed of 22 films and videos from archives ranging from Rochester to Alaska, Hawaii, Israel, the Netherlands, and back, this program has something for everyone. This cinematic Cabinet of Wonders features a wonderful promotion for a lost Thai film, a bizarre antidrug commercial with Alice in Wonderland, a banned experimental film from Albania, Josephine Baker dancing the Charleston in wooden clogs, a commercial to buy your own Stonewall action figures, and many more.
