Spring screenings

27 Apr

My independent study student is curating public screenings every week. She’s also learning how to run the big arc lamp projectors in the booth. Today we watched Lumière’s First Picture Show (Blackhawk Films, 1975) and Monkey on the Back (National Film Board of Canada, 1957).

Dick Smith, happy and high on heroin.

Poor Dick, withdrawal sucks.

And how.
