New Orleans 2005 - Special Event
Archives in the Movies
Thursday, August 18, 2005
Leith Johnson, co-curator of the Wesleyan University Cinema Archives, premiered this very special homage to archives in the movies at SAA 2003.
Back by popular demand, Johnson presents an updated program of two dozen wide-ranging film clips to show how archivists, curators, and institutions that preserve the historical record (including a map on the back of the Declaration of Independence) are portrayed—for better or worse—in movies. Come sit in the dark with strangers (and friends!), enjoy some popcorn...and watch yourself on the silver screen!
