Stories of Indian Cinema

Stories of Indian Cinema includes Abandoned and Rescued, the intriguing behind-the-scenes tale of the recently acquired collection of Indian films and posters; a film series that includes screenings of a selection of film reels discussed in the exhibition; and Nandita Raman: Cinema Play House, a series of poignant black-and-white photographs of abandoned and failing single-screen cinemas in India.

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema (January 13–June 24, 2018) is dedicated to a unique collection of more than 23,000 original nitrate frames of 35mm films from the early years of cinema (1897–1915).

One of the world’s leading experts in the history of silent cinema, Davide Turconi (1911–2005) gathered these rare frames in the 1960s from a large collection of films acquired by Jesuit priest Josef-Alexis Joye (1852–1919) in Basel, Switzerland. In Basel, Joye had established an educational institution, the Borromäum, that focused on social programs, such as caring for and instructing orphans, providing Sunday school classes, and offering education programs for recent Catholic émigrés and the working class.

In the early 1900s, Joye began to collect films and incorporate them into his lectures. These films have become known as the Josef Joye Collection. Joye acquired a wide variety of international films over a number of years from the secondhand market in Switzerland and Germany. After he left Basel in 1911, the films remained at the Borromäum. At the time of Turconi’s discovery of the collection, the prints were in various stages of chemical decay. Fearing that no trace would remain of these precious films, Turconi took brief clips (typically two or three frames per clipping) from each of them, thus preserving an invaluable documentation on the color techniques employed by film production companies at the beginning of the twentieth century. 

Today, the Turconi and Joye Collections are a primary source for the study of early cinema, and of color technology in particular. (The complete surviving films are now at the British Film Institute’s National Archive in London.) The George Eastman Museum acquired the Turconi Collection in the 1990s, and a massive digitization project was completed after twelve years of painstaking work. The sheer beauty of the nitrate frames and their colors can now be shared with the public.

This year’s program will feature another great lineup of nitrate prints from around the world, and a cinematic experience that can’t be duplicated anywhere else.

Over the past three years, hundreds of people from more than 20 different countries have made the trip to Rochester to indulge in the nitrate experience at the George Eastman Museum.

The 4th Nitrate Picture Show

The Nitrate Picture Show, the world’s festival of film conservation, returns for a fourth year. The festival features screenings of vintage nitrate prints from international archives—including the Eastman Museum’s own collection—as well as lectures, workshops, and other opportunities to experience the art and science of film preservation, from print conservation to archival projection.

Countdown to the 4th Nitrate Picture Show at the George Eastman Museum May 4–6

Rochester, N.Y., April 30, 2018—The George Eastman Museum will present the 4th Nitrate Picture Show on May 4–6, 2018, at the Dryden Theatre in Rochester, NY.  The 4th Nitrate Picture Show has been generously funded by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and Imagine Monroe (powered by COMIDA).  The schedule for this year’s festival includes ten programs of feature-length and short films from eleven international archives and collections. The titles in this year’s lineup will be revealed at 9 a.m. on Friday, May 4.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recently named the George Eastman Museum a recipient of its 2018 FilmWatch grant, with an award of $10,000 to support the Nitrate Picture Show.  In addition, the museum has once again received sponsorship support for the festival from Imagine Monroe (powered by COMIDA), in the amount of $10,000. Funding from both the Academy and Imagine Monroe will enhance the festival experience for the more than 400 passholders that will be heading to Rochester from around the country and the world for the Nitrate Picture Show this week.

A limited number of festival passes are still available and can be purchased at eastman.org/nps. Passes entitle participants to three days of film screenings, talks, and demonstrations, as well as a reception on Saturday night and museum admission throughout the festival weekend.

The featured speakers for the 4th Nitrate Picture Show are Mikko Kuutti, deputy director of the National Audiovisual Institute in Finland, and Paul C. Spehr, former assistant chief of the Motion Picture, Broadcasting and Recorded Sound Division at the Library of Congress.

 

Mikko Kuutti is an architect by education, specialized in building conservation and restoration. He researched film cold storage in his master’s thesis and finds the chemistry and technology of celluloid fascinating. He is currently secretary general of ACE, the association of European film archives and was previously deputy head of the Technical Commission of FIAF, the International Federation of Film Archives. Kuutti’s talk will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, May 4.

 

Paul C. Spehr, retired from the Library of Congress, continues to contribute to the revived interest in the early years of film history through his articles, participation in symposia, and efforts in saving our film heritage. Spehr will deliver his talk, which will be the Eastman Museum’s annual James Card Memorial Lecture, on Friday, May 4 at 3 p.m. Spehr is on the board of Thanhouser Company Film Preservation Inc. and the Albanian Cinema Project, as well as the editorial board for the journal Film History. He is a member of the Association of Moving Image Archivists and of Domitor, the international society for the study of early cinema. He is currently working on a book on the American Mutoscope and Biograph Company in the years prior to 1908. Both talks will be held in the Dryden Theatre, and are included with the festival pass.

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema (January 13–June 24, 2018) is dedicated to a unique collection of more than 23,000 original nitrate frames of 35mm films from the early years of cinema (1897–1915).

One of the world’s leading experts in the history of silent cinema, Davide Turconi (1911–2005) gathered these rare frames in the 1960s from a large collection of films acquired by Jesuit priest Josef-Alexis Joye (1852–1919) in Basel, Switzerland. In Basel, Joye had established an educational institution, the Borromäum, that focused on social programs, such as caring for and instructing orphans, providing Sunday school classes, and offering education programs for recent Catholic émigrés and the working class.

In the early 1900s, Joye began to collect films and incorporate them into his lectures. These films have become known as the Josef Joye Collection. Joye acquired a wide variety of international films over a number of years from the secondhand market in Switzerland and Germany. After he left Basel in 1911, the films remained at the Borromäum. At the time of Turconi’s discovery of the collection, the prints were in various stages of chemical decay. Fearing that no trace would remain of these precious films, Turconi took brief clips (typically two or three frames per clipping) from each of them, thus preserving an invaluable documentation on the color techniques employed by film production companies at the beginning of the twentieth century. 

Today, the Turconi and Joye Collections are a primary source for the study of early cinema, and of color technology in particular. (The complete surviving films are now at the British Film Institute’s National Archive in London.) The George Eastman Museum acquired the Turconi Collection in the 1990s, and a massive digitization project was completed after twelve years of painstaking work. The sheer beauty of the nitrate frames and their colors can now be shared with the public.

This year’s program will feature another great lineup of nitrate prints from around the world, and a cinematic experience that can’t be duplicated anywhere else.

Over the past three years, hundreds of people from more than 20 different countries have made the trip to Rochester to indulge in the nitrate experience at the George Eastman Museum. The official program, which is kept secret until the first day of the festival, will be announced at 9 a.m. on Friday, May 4.

Rochester, N.Y., April 30, 2018—The George Eastman Museum will present the 4th Nitrate Picture Show on May 4–6, 2018, at the Dryden Theatre in Rochester, NY.  The 4th Nitrate Picture Show has been generously funded by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and Imagine Monroe (powered by COMIDA).  The schedule for this year’s festival includes ten programs of feature-length and short films from eleven international archives and collections. The titles in this year’s lineup will be revealed at 9 a.m. on Friday, May 4.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recently named the George Eastman Museum a recipient of its 2018 FilmWatch grant, with an award of $10,000 to support the Nitrate Picture Show.  In addition, the museum has once again received sponsorship support for the festival from Imagine Monroe (powered by COMIDA), in the amount of $10,000. Funding from both the Academy and Imagine Monroe will enhance the festival experience for the more than 400 passholders that will be heading to Rochester from around the country and the world for the Nitrate Picture Show this week.

A limited number of festival passes are still available and can be purchased at eastman.org/nps. Passes entitle participants to three days of film screenings, talks, and demonstrations, as well as a reception on Saturday night and museum admission throughout the festival weekend.

The featured speakers for the 4th Nitrate Picture Show are Mikko Kuutti, deputy director of the National Audiovisual Institute in Finland, and Paul C. Spehr, former assistant chief of the Motion Picture, Broadcasting and Recorded Sound Division at the Library of Congress.

 

Mikko Kuutti is an architect by education, specialized in building conservation and restoration. He researched film cold storage in his master’s thesis and finds the chemistry and technology of celluloid fascinating. He is currently secretary general of ACE, the association of European film archives and was previously deputy head of the Technical Commission of FIAF, the International Federation of Film Archives. Kuutti’s talk will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, May 4.

 

Paul C. Spehr, retired from the Library of Congress, continues to contribute to the revived interest in the early years of film history through his articles, participation in symposia, and efforts in saving our film heritage. Spehr will deliver his talk, which will be the Eastman Museum’s annual James Card Memorial Lecture, on Friday, May 4 at 3 p.m. Spehr is on the board of Thanhouser Company Film Preservation Inc. and the Albanian Cinema Project, as well as the editorial board for the journal Film History. He is a member of the Association of Moving Image Archivists and of Domitor, the international society for the study of early cinema. He is currently working on a book on the American Mutoscope and Biograph Company in the years prior to 1908. Both talks will be held in the Dryden Theatre, and are included with the festival pass.

Eastman Entertains: At The Movies Tabletop Displays

The George Eastman Museum has announced that its popular Eastman Entertains: At the Movies, will be on view from Tuesday, May 8, through Sunday, May 20. For two weeks only, a spectacular array of creatively styled table settings and floral arrangements inspired by popular motion pictures—including My Fair Lady, A League of Their Own, Steel Magnolias, and The Goonies—will be displayed throughout the mansion of entrepreneur and philanthropist George Eastman.

 

Now in its third year, Eastman Entertains pays homage to George Eastman’s own entertaining of friends, family, and business colleagues at his grand East Avenue residence. As Rochester’s leading

citizen, Eastman was accustomed to hosting guests, and he ensured that each luncheon, dinner party, and event was a memorable experience for them. This display continues to honor the tradition of entertaining at the mansion that Eastman cherished.

 

The 23 creative tablescapes and arrangements throughout the National Historic Landmark mansion were designed by Eastman Museum Council members, local garden club members, florists, or specialty retailers.

 

As a complement to the displays in the mansion, the Dryden Theatre will screen five of the films that provided inspiration for this elegant and elaborate display.

Eastman Entertains: At The Movies Tabletop Displays

The George Eastman Museum has announced that its popular Eastman Entertains: At the Movies, will be on view from Tuesday, May 8, through Sunday, May 20. For two weeks only, a spectacular array of creatively styled table settings and floral arrangements inspired by popular motion pictures—including My Fair Lady, A League of Their Own, Steel Magnolias, and The Goonies—will be displayed throughout the mansion of entrepreneur and philanthropist George Eastman.

 

Now in its third year, Eastman Entertains pays homage to George Eastman’s own entertaining of friends, family, and business colleagues at his grand East Avenue residence. As Rochester’s leading

citizen, Eastman was accustomed to hosting guests, and he ensured that each luncheon, dinner party, and event was a memorable experience for them. This display continues to honor the tradition of entertaining at the mansion that Eastman cherished.

 

The 23 creative tablescapes and arrangements throughout the National Historic Landmark mansion were designed by Eastman Museum Council members, local garden club members, florists, or specialty retailers.

 

As a complement to the displays in the mansion, the Dryden Theatre will screen five of the films that provided inspiration for this elegant and elaborate display.

Stories of Indian Cinema

Stories of Indian Cinema includes Abandoned and Rescued, the intriguing behind-the-scenes tale of the recently acquired collection of Indian films and posters; a film series that includes screenings of a selection of film reels discussed in the exhibition; and Nandita Raman: Cinema Play House, a series of poignant black-and-white photographs of abandoned and failing single-screen cinemas in India.

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema (January 13–June 24, 2018) is dedicated to a unique collection of more than 23,000 original nitrate frames of 35mm films from the early years of cinema (1897–1915).

One of the world’s leading experts in the history of silent cinema, Davide Turconi (1911–2005) gathered these rare frames in the 1960s from a large collection of films acquired by Jesuit priest Josef-Alexis Joye (1852–1919) in Basel, Switzerland. In Basel, Joye had established an educational institution, the Borromäum, that focused on social programs, such as caring for and instructing orphans, providing Sunday school classes, and offering education programs for recent Catholic émigrés and the working class.

In the early 1900s, Joye began to collect films and incorporate them into his lectures. These films have become known as the Josef Joye Collection. Joye acquired a wide variety of international films over a number of years from the secondhand market in Switzerland and Germany. After he left Basel in 1911, the films remained at the Borromäum. At the time of Turconi’s discovery of the collection, the prints were in various stages of chemical decay. Fearing that no trace would remain of these precious films, Turconi took brief clips (typically two or three frames per clipping) from each of them, thus preserving an invaluable documentation on the color techniques employed by film production companies at the beginning of the twentieth century. 

Today, the Turconi and Joye Collections are a primary source for the study of early cinema, and of color technology in particular. (The complete surviving films are now at the British Film Institute’s National Archive in London.) The George Eastman Museum acquired the Turconi Collection in the 1990s, and a massive digitization project was completed after twelve years of painstaking work. The sheer beauty of the nitrate frames and their colors can now be shared with the public.

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema (January 13–June 24, 2018) is dedicated to a unique collection of more than 23,000 original nitrate frames of 35mm films from the early years of cinema (1897–1915).

One of the world’s leading experts in the history of silent cinema, Davide Turconi (1911–2005) gathered these rare frames in the 1960s from a large collection of films acquired by Jesuit priest Josef-Alexis Joye (1852–1919) in Basel, Switzerland. In Basel, Joye had established an educational institution, the Borromäum, that focused on social programs, such as caring for and instructing orphans, providing Sunday school classes, and offering education programs for recent Catholic émigrés and the working class.

In the early 1900s, Joye began to collect films and incorporate them into his lectures. These films have become known as the Josef Joye Collection. Joye acquired a wide variety of international films over a number of years from the secondhand market in Switzerland and Germany. After he left Basel in 1911, the films remained at the Borromäum. At the time of Turconi’s discovery of the collection, the prints were in various stages of chemical decay. Fearing that no trace would remain of these precious films, Turconi took brief clips (typically two or three frames per clipping) from each of them, thus preserving an invaluable documentation on the color techniques employed by film production companies at the beginning of the twentieth century. 

Today, the Turconi and Joye Collections are a primary source for the study of early cinema, and of color technology in particular. (The complete surviving films are now at the British Film Institute’s National Archive in London.) The George Eastman Museum acquired the Turconi Collection in the 1990s, and a massive digitization project was completed after twelve years of painstaking work. The sheer beauty of the nitrate frames and their colors can now be shared with the public.

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema (January 13–June 24, 2018) is dedicated to a unique collection of more than 23,000 original nitrate frames of 35mm films from the early years of cinema (1897–1915).

One of the world’s leading experts in the history of silent cinema, Davide Turconi (1911–2005) gathered these rare frames in the 1960s from a large collection of films acquired by Jesuit priest Josef-Alexis Joye (1852–1919) in Basel, Switzerland. In Basel, Joye had established an educational institution, the Borromäum, that focused on social programs, such as caring for and instructing orphans, providing Sunday school classes, and offering education programs for recent Catholic émigrés and the working class.

In the early 1900s, Joye began to collect films and incorporate them into his lectures. These films have become known as the Josef Joye Collection. Joye acquired a wide variety of international films over a number of years from the secondhand market in Switzerland and Germany. After he left Basel in 1911, the films remained at the Borromäum. At the time of Turconi’s discovery of the collection, the prints were in various stages of chemical decay. Fearing that no trace would remain of these precious films, Turconi took brief clips (typically two or three frames per clipping) from each of them, thus preserving an invaluable documentation on the color techniques employed by film production companies at the beginning of the twentieth century. 

Today, the Turconi and Joye Collections are a primary source for the study of early cinema, and of color technology in particular. (The complete surviving films are now at the British Film Institute’s National Archive in London.) The George Eastman Museum acquired the Turconi Collection in the 1990s, and a massive digitization project was completed after twelve years of painstaking work. The sheer beauty of the nitrate frames and their colors can now be shared with the public.

Now in its third year, Eastman Entertains pays homage to George Eastman’s own entertaining of friends, family, and business colleagues at his grand East Avenue residence. As Rochester’s leading

citizen, Eastman was accustomed to hosting guests, and he ensured that each luncheon, dinner party, and event was a memorable experience for them. This display continues to honor the tradition of entertaining at the mansion that Eastman cherished.

 

The 23 creative tablescapes and arrangements throughout the National Historic Landmark mansion were designed by Eastman Museum Council members, local garden club members, florists, or specialty retailers.

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema (January 13–June 24, 2018) is dedicated to a unique collection of more than 23,000 original nitrate frames of 35mm films from the early years of cinema (1897–1915).

One of the world’s leading experts in the history of silent cinema, Davide Turconi (1911–2005) gathered these rare frames in the 1960s from a large collection of films acquired by Jesuit priest Josef-Alexis Joye (1852–1919) in Basel, Switzerland. In Basel, Joye had established an educational institution, the Borromäum, that focused on social programs, such as caring for and instructing orphans, providing Sunday school classes, and offering education programs for recent Catholic émigrés and the working class.

In the early 1900s, Joye began to collect films and incorporate them into his lectures. These films have become known as the Josef Joye Collection. Joye acquired a wide variety of international films over a number of years from the secondhand market in Switzerland and Germany. After he left Basel in 1911, the films remained at the Borromäum. At the time of Turconi’s discovery of the collection, the prints were in various stages of chemical decay. Fearing that no trace would remain of these precious films, Turconi took brief clips (typically two or three frames per clipping) from each of them, thus preserving an invaluable documentation on the color techniques employed by film production companies at the beginning of the twentieth century. 

Today, the Turconi and Joye Collections are a primary source for the study of early cinema, and of color technology in particular. (The complete surviving films are now at the British Film Institute’s National Archive in London.) The George Eastman Museum acquired the Turconi Collection in the 1990s, and a massive digitization project was completed after twelve years of painstaking work. The sheer beauty of the nitrate frames and their colors can now be shared with the public.

Eastman Entertains: At The Movies Tabletop Displays

The George Eastman Museum has announced that its popular Eastman Entertains: At the Movies, will be on view from Tuesday, May 8, through Sunday, May 20. For two weeks only, a spectacular array of creatively styled table settings and floral arrangements inspired by popular motion pictures—including My Fair Lady, A League of Their Own, Steel Magnolias, and The Goonies—will be displayed throughout the mansion of entrepreneur and philanthropist George Eastman.

 

Now in its third year, Eastman Entertains pays homage to George Eastman’s own entertaining of friends, family, and business colleagues at his grand East Avenue residence. As Rochester’s leading

citizen, Eastman was accustomed to hosting guests, and he ensured that each luncheon, dinner party, and event was a memorable experience for them. This display continues to honor the tradition of entertaining at the mansion that Eastman cherished.

 

The 23 creative tablescapes and arrangements throughout the National Historic Landmark mansion were designed by Eastman Museum Council members, local garden club members, florists, or specialty retailers.

 

As a complement to the displays in the mansion, the Dryden Theatre will screen five of the films that provided inspiration for this elegant and elaborate display.

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema

Dreaming in Color: The Davide Turconi Collection of Early Cinema (January 13–June 24, 2018) is dedicated to a unique collection of more than 23,000 original nitrate frames of 35mm films from the early years of cinema (1897–1915).

One of the world’s leading experts in the history of silent cinema, Davide Turconi (1911–2005) gathered these rare frames in the 1960s from a large collection of films acquired by Jesuit priest Josef-Alexis Joye (1852–1919) in Basel, Switzerland. In Basel, Joye had established an educational institution, the Borromäum, that focused on social programs, such as caring for and instructing orphans, providing Sunday school classes, and offering education programs for recent Catholic émigrés and the working class.

In the early 1900s, Joye began to collect films and incorporate them into his lectures. These films have become known as the Josef Joye Collection. Joye acquired a wide variety of international films over a number of years from the secondhand market in Switzerland and Germany. After he left Basel in 1911, the films remained at the Borromäum. At the time of Turconi’s discovery of the collection, the prints were in various stages of chemical decay. Fearing that no trace would remain of these precious films, Turconi took brief clips (typically two or three frames per clipping) from each of them, thus preserving an invaluable documentation on the color techniques employed by film production companies at the beginning of the twentieth century. 

Today, the Turconi and Joye Collections are a primary source for the study of early cinema, and of color technology in particular. (The complete surviving films are now at the British Film Institute’s National Archive in London.) The George Eastman Museum acquired the Turconi Collection in the 1990s, and a massive digitization project was completed after twelve years of painstaking work. The sheer beauty of the nitrate frames and their colors can now be shared with the public.
