When Ed Stratmann gave the James Card Memorial Lecture in 2009, he curated as part of his presentation this selection of films from Rochester’s past. On silent and sound 35mm film, these titles reach from the early years of the twentieth century to the museum’s Second Festival of Film Artists (the precursor to the George Eastman Award) in 1957. Now, in memory of Stratmann, we’re bringing this program back to the Dryden screen for audiences to see elements of a Rochester past come alive.
Live piano accompaniment by Dr. Philip C. Carli.
