Film Treasures from the George Eastman Museum: Enchanting Women
Following past TIFF special screenings featuring films from MoMA, Orson Welles and UCLA, we will present Film Treasures from George Eastman Museum, in collaboration with the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo.
Opened in 1949 as a film and photography archive in Rochester, NY, the Eastman Museum is the second oldest in the US, and known for its collections of flammable originals and stills of many precious motion pictures, including American silents. Erich von Stroheim’s Queen Kelly (1931) [Swanson version] and other American masterpieces from the golden age of the 20s and 30s will be screened in beautiful 35mm prints.
