In celebration of David Shepard’s lifetime of film preservation, the Academy is pleased to offer a special screening of highlights from silent and primitive films in the David Shepard Collection, which was donated to the Academy Film Archive. Film historian and preservationist Serge Bromberg will screen several of the silent gems saved through Shepard’s stewardship, which will be accompanied by Joe Rinaudo on the Academy’s newly restored 1915 Fotoplayer. Some of the films will be presented on a hand-cranked 1909 Powers projector. Commentary and further insights will be offered by Leonard Maltin and Serge Bromberg.
