Portrait of Jennie is, ostensibly, an average film, but in its final reel, it reveals it is a rare cinematic experience. Jared Case, Anthony L’Abbate, and Spencer Christiano will talk about the film, its technical peculiarities, and how those aspects are re-created in a modern cinema.
Jamie M. Allen will guide visitors through Bea Nettles: Harvest of Memory.
Commemorating the centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment’s ratification, which granted American women the right to vote, this presentation examines how photography has portrayed, and fundamentally shaped, perceptions of women and feminist movements since the mid-1800s.
