Indubitably the world’s leading expert on industrial films, Mr. Rick Prelinger graces our gallery once again with selections from this new encyclopedia published by the National Film Preservation Foundation.
Drawing from a life spent slaving in the archives, Rick’s commentary provides fascinating historical context for these magnificent educational-film artifacts. Projected in both video and 16mm, his program does justice to this relatively new branch of film archaeology, while also providing for a richly engaging cinema experience.
Among the recovered specimens are Your Name Here; Why Not Live?; A Is for Atom; Once Upon a Honeymoon; and Ask Me, Don’t Tell Me. PLUS Megan Prelinger-Shaw’s Cabinet of Curiosities.
