This celebration of the educational films of yesteryear — a co-presentation with Washington University Libraries’ Film & Media Archive — makes a return engagement to the St. Louis International Film Festival with a fresh batch of shorts that will screen — for free! — at The Stage at KDHX (3524 Washington Avenue, St. Louis 63130).
Have you ever won the lottery? Do you find you don’t always see eye to eye with your significant other? Does listening to Canadian street music conjure surreal images in your mind? Find out the solutions to these questions and more as the Washington University Libraries and the St. Louis International Film Festival present Rawstock: an archival screening night celebrating the educational films of yesteryear. Settle in with your friends for a relaxing night of drinks, kitsch, and nostalgia, all projected in old-fashioned 16mm.
When not sharing selections from its vast trove of 16mm educational films, the Film & Media Archive serves as a nationally recognized center for scholarship, teaching, and learning. Founded in 2002, and part of Washington University’s Special Collections, the Film & Media Archive works with students, faculty members, researchers, and filmmakers to enable research of America’s great social and political movements using film, video, and other archival media.
Co-presented with Washington University Libraries and Cinema St. Louis.
