EVENT: Surveillance

October 23, 2013 Events No Comments

Now that Home Movie Day is behind us, it is time to get a leg up on the next rung in our quest for A/V archival completeness: UNESCO’s World Day for AudioVisual Heritage. Like HMD, there are events happening all over the world this weekend, mostly hosted by well-funded institutions as a way to show off the untapped areas of their collections (check out Carnegie Hall’s blog post).

The event that piques our activist interest is a Surveillance-themed screening at the Brooklyn Historical Society (October 27th at 1pm). The program is a mix of real surveillance footage and artistic works incorporating the theme, including a world premiere of a Beryl Sokoloff film “Les Girls.” You can read more about the lineup here: http://wdavh.tumblr.com/selections.
