Standing room only for Rick Prelinger’s Lost Landscape of San Francisco 6 at the Internet Archive last night. New films including “process plates” from studios brought a new sharpness to many of the films presented. Suggested donations was 5 bucks or 5 books, and people brought lots of great books for the Archive.
Next is Lost Landscapes of Detroit on February 22, 2012– this is Detroit without the narratives being imposed on it. Doors open at 6:30, show at 7:30.
Thank you all!
An absolutely incredible, captivating look-back at yesteryear in San Francisco by archivist Rick Prelinger piecing together old videos of The City he’s passionately procurredfrom many sources. No doubt Rick will be showing this and other Lost Landscapes productions in the future – DO NOT MISS the opportunity. Check Internet Archive website for special events.
That is really a great idea – $5 or 5 books. Lost Landscapes are a great way to show how things were compared to today.
Rick Prelinger will be remembered for this.
I have a digital copy of a movie from 1929. It’s not really available anywhere, and I can’t see how it could NOT be in the public domain. How do I find out? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnqGMRKdUHY Humoresque: 1929. (It gets better after I position my camera arm.)
