Description

On Thursday June 15th in conjunction with the Library of Congress' annual Mostly Lost event, the Packard Campus will be screening an evening of silent films. Tickets are free but due to the large number of Mostly Lost attendees it is suggested to obtain a ticket via this Eventbrite page to ensure there will be a seat for you. This is NOT a ticket to the Mostly Lost workshop, only a ticket for the free evening screening. To register for Mostly Lost 6 visit https://mostlylostsix.eventbrite.com.


The program will begin at 7:30 p.m. and will include newly restored silent films of “Now We're In The Air” (1927) and “Corporal Kate” (1926) accompanied by Andrew Simpson both shown from 35mm prints at the Packard Campus. The event is free and open to the public.


"Almost Found: NOW WE'RE IN THE AIR" (1927) – presented by Rob Byrne.

Louise Brooks appeared in fourteen American films during the silent era. Five of these features are currently thought to be entirely lost, while two others survive only as fragments or incomplete copies. Now it’s time to move the needle, just a little bit, on the Louise Brooks Lost-Film-O-Meter. Following a tip from Kevin Brownlow, last August Robert Bryne learned of a fragmentary nitrate print of the hitherto considered lost Now We’re in the Air (1927) stored in the vaults of Národní filmový archiv in Prague. In this presentation, he will present a brief (very brief) description of the project to restore and preserve what remains, followed by a screening of the entire 22-minute restoration.

CORPORAL KATE (1926)

Frequently cited as one of the first war films that feature the female angle, this is the premiere of the newly preserved DeMille Pictures Corporation feature. Two manicurists are in Europe when World War I breaks out. The two women decide to enlist and struggle not only with the brutalities of war but also with their love for the same man. Directed by Paul Slone. Starring Vera Reynolds, Julia Faye and Kenneth Thompson.
