IU’s Lilly Library acquired the David Bradley Film Collection in 1997, a vast assorted of 16mm films collected by producer, director, and writer David Bradley over the course of his life. While many of the films Bradley collected are familiar titles in Hollywood and international cinema, a number are obscure, strange works, some of which have hardly ever been seen. This show presents some of these oddities, including “Mars,” a film that screened at the Art in Cinema film society in San Francisco in the 1940s, one of America’s earliest film societies with an emphasis on experimental cinema.
The program includes:
La Marche des Machines, Eugene Deslaw, 1928, 5.5 min., b&w, silent
Seashell and the Clergyman, Germaine Dulac, 1928, 29 min., b&w, silent
Sausalito, Frank Stauffacher, 1947, 11 min., b&w, sound
Notes on the Port of St. Francis, Frank Stauffacher, 1951, 21.5 min., b&w sound
