Genre: 1930's? (Yes, there are others.)

Shown in Reg. 8mm & Super8 (Sound) only! All New Program! Never Seen Before!

Curated by 8mmAnonymous

Back by popular demand after a sold out standing room only screening here last February. I've had this idea since the mid 2000's (2005, to be more precise.) In my humble estimation, what, I think the Maysles Cinema should be doing, but are not, is exhibiting films found (exclusively) at flea markets (mainly) garage sales and other places. I don't think I have ever seen a program like this one before. There may have been ones like this in the 80's that I went to. However, none in 8mm, that we know of! A first! Another coup! A concentrated focus on a particular type of newsreel, many of which were made during the 40's (for some reason). It's heyday, you could say. Shot by anonymous (and sometimes unknown) camera people and filmmakers, the unsung heroes and heroines of newsreel editors, etc. Copies of a booklet on the subject will be available at the show!
