Other Histories: Amateur Films on the National Film Registry
Other Histories: Amateur Films on the National Film Registry is a three-program film screening series curated by the Center for Home Movies. The series will be the first-ever screening of all 17 amateur films that have been named to the Library of Congress’s National Film Registry. The series will premiere on the weekend of January 10-12, 2020, part of MoMA’s “Home Movie Weekend” at the Roy and Niuta Titus Theater at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. The series will be part of MoMA’s landmark Private Lives, Public Spaces exhibition, the museum’s 100-screen gallery installation of home movies and amateur films drawn exclusively from its collection. The series will be projected digitally, including many new high-resolution scans, narration, and musical scores created exclusively for the series.
