Eames screening at Wexner Center’s “Saving ‘Orphan’ Films”Posted February 6, 2017
Saving “Orphan” Films is part of the third-annual film festival, Cinema Revival: A Festival of Film Restoration.
Established in 1997, the National Film Preservation Foundation was formed by Congress to help save America’s film heritage. In this program, the foundation’s Jeff Lambert introduces a program of “orphan films”—works with no corporate owner or copyright holder and at greatest risk of falling through the cracks—whose preservation the NFPF is supporting. The program includes films by Charles and Ray Eames, Owen Land, and Shirley Clarke, among others. (Program approx. 90 mins., 16 & 35mm)
