Like vinyl records, authentic celluloid movie film is a dying art form. Or maybe not so dying.
Husets Biograf – the only commercial cinema in DK that still shows genuine 16mm and 35mm analog film – is dedicated to saving and celebrating these “lost” formats. Every year Jack Stevenson gets donations from collectors and institutions around the world, and this program constitutes some of the most interesting acquisitions, many of which have never been digitalized.
From an existential 1948 driver-education film by legendary Danish director Johan Jacobsen to an outtake of “Zombies of the Stratosphere” to a selection of American TV commercials that harken back to the era of “Mad Men” and much more, this is a not-to-be-missed experience full of surprises for film buffs, analog junkies, serious connoisseurs of popular culture and mindless thrill seekers.
All films screened on 16mm. Note: possibly 1 or 2 of these films are in Danish dialogue with no subtitles.
The program will be presented by Jack Stevenson.
The screening will take place in Husets Biograf on the 2nd floor.
