The 1938 International Amateur Movie Show: A Reconstruction

Oct 10 Event Poster.jpg

Charles Tepperman reconstructs the International Amateur Movie Show, which was presented at Columbia University (New York) on April 6, 1938. Amateur movie organizations around the world submitted their best films for the screening, and ultimately 10 films from 9 different countries were presented. The Amateur Movie Database Project has located several of these films –travelogues, short fiction films, and avant-garde works – and presents a partial reconstruction of the program. (Digital formats, 83 minutes)

DJ Wakcutt will live-mix accompaniment to the silent films from his personal vinyl collection. This is a licensed event, so arrive early to enjoy a signature cocktail from the bar!
