Rawstock

90 min.

Schedule

Sunday, Nov. 6 at 7:00pm

“Rawstock” — a co-presentation with Washington University Libraries’ Film & Media Archive — makes a return engagement to SLIFF, offering another celebration of the educational films of yesteryear. A fresh batch of the shorts will screen — for free! — at Stage at KDHX. Relive the existential angst from your adolescent gym class, immerse yourself in the wonders of the Swinging '60s, or be reminded of your brief stint as a juvenile delinquent. 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 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 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.
