Have you ever been curious about how your parents learned back in the day? Are you interested in what came before digital? Do you frequently find yourself with no plans on a Thursday night? If you answered yes to any of these questions, join the Washington University Libraries for RAWSTOCK—an evening celebrating the educational films of yesteryear. Coming to you straight from the Libraries’ Film & Media Archive, learn how to cope with nagging parents, find out if you’re really ready for marriage, and learn to think twice about borrowing someone’s car without asking. All films will be projected for you on actual 16mm film that was shown in real classrooms across the St. Louis area. Do not miss this unique event taking place in Olin Library for the first time!
When not sharing selections from their 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 the Libraries’ Special Collections, the Film & Media Archive works with students, faculty, researchers, and filmmakers to enable research of America’s great social and political movements using film, video, and other archival media.
