Fall 2007 Introduction to Moving Image Archiving and Preservation
Film of Dow Chemical Protest 1968
Although it has been shown at least once in the past several years at NYU, with some original participants in the discussion, Dan still thinks there is enough research to be done on this piece to make it a good candidate for the Intro students.
The film also raising an interesting (albeit small) cataloging/research issue. The only mention of it is buried way deep at the bottom of this long "Guide to the Papers of John G. Mason 1963-1978."
Teach Our Children
Directed by Christine Choy & Susan Robeson, Third World Newsreel, 1972
This is being preserved by Pacific Film Archive. One of the Directors is normally a Tisch professor, but is in China this year.
Interview with Emile de Antonio
a 1-reel 16mm film that Anthology
recently acquired from a donor [Gordon Hitchens]. It's a
recording of an interview with Emile de Antonio done in Nov. 1967 at a
film festival in East Germany [Leipzig Documentary Film
Festival]. The interviewer tells us he is doing this as part of a
series of filmmaker interviews for "the Media Laboratory of the New
York Institute of Technology."
This is the earliest film documentation of EdA that Dan knows of, outside of his own filmwork (and Dan wrote the definitive book on EdA). Dan is not 100% sure of its inclusion in Orphans 6, but he's sure he'll show at least part of it.
Andrew Lampert of Anthology says"We can
show the film to students on our Steenbeck, no problem." And they
will try to do a proper video transfer, but maybe not in time for the
students to look at it.
