Films You Weren’t Supposed to See
Jay Schwartz and his Secret Cinema return to Moore College with a program of “short films never intended for viewing by the general public.
From the press release:
TOP SECRET: FILMS YOU WEREN’T SUPPOSED TO SEE includes films produced to convey private information from the government, the military and big business, instructional or motivational in nature, to carefully targeted audiences of battle forces in the field, farmers, middle management and wholesale buyers of products. Spanning from World War II through the 1960s, these forgotten reels reveal long hidden and often surprising views of mid-century America. At least one of these films was originally marked as containing “Restricted” information (and for all we know it is still officially restricted!).
There will be one complete program, starting at 8:00 pm. Admission is $8.00.
As always with Secret Cinema events, the films will be shown using real film (not video) projected on a giant screen.
Visit Secret Cinema for program details.
