Ephemeral New York, Ephemeral Image:
A film series

June 13: The Bowery/Downtown Scene
June 20: Abstract
June 27: Personal and Diaristic

GVSHP is happy to co-sponsor this program at Jefferson Market Library

Ephemeral New York, Ephemeral Image utilizes The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts’ extensive 16mm film collections as a way of beginning a conversation that surrounds not only the history of New York City, but also how and why these historical documents can (and do) change and reconstruct our perception and remembrance of the city’s pasts and give us insight into how we might conceive of documenting the future. Many of the films to be viewed are rare and unavailable in any other format. The course is discussion-based and each session is dedicated to a physical aspect of the city, geographic location within the city, or a style of filmic interpretation from the city’s vast and ever-cumulative narratives. Films to be screened include Stations of the Elevated (1981) Punking Out (1978) Surface Tension (1968) andSouthern Images (1983).

Full list of films HERE.

Presented in the first floor Willa Cather Community Room. All events and courses are free and open to the public.
