A/V Geeks is a collection of 24,000 16mm films, and Skip Elsheimer is touring the country trying to raise funds to digitize 100 miles (!) of these works. The films include bizarre and fascinating educational, industrial, and otherwise "orphaned" work that will expand your concept of the boundaries of cinema studies! Some titles to be screened include Telezonia; Shake Hands with Danger; and the finest popular-science film in his collection (TBA). The format will be a screening/discussion, with the opportunity for questions from the audience.
