An Archival Roadshow: The Moving Image Plays Itself
In 1964, Marshall McLuhan coined the phrase, “The medium is the message.” This collage of a program draws from twenty-five 16mm films within IU’s collections which highlight the filmmaking process, exhibition, and cellulose material itself, putting the medium of film at the forefront. Part film history, part educational, and part experimental film, there is much to enjoy for anyone who loves the movies in their varied forms.
This program contains flashing images.
Arrive early to enjoy interactive demonstrations of 16mm film handling equipment with trained film archivists. Curated by Jennifer and Jon Vickers.Learn more about the event
