AMATEUR NIGHT: Home Movies from American Archives

Wednesday, May 4 ,  8PM

Gene Siskel Film Center
164 North State Street
Chicago, Illinois 60601

Admissions: $10 general and $7 students

Chicago Film Archives and the Center for Home Movies present AMATEUR NIGHT: HOME MOVIES FROM AMERICAN ARCHIVES, a selection of amazing amateur films from across the country. AMATEUR NIGHT provides a peek into the fascinating and increasingly popular home movie vernacular, a less self-conscious lens onto the mid-twentieth century world. CFA’s FAIRY PRINCESS was chosen to be among these unique visual tales alongside ALFRED HITCHCOCK’S HOME MOVIES, the LAST GREAT GATHERING OF THE SIOUX NATION, and ATOM BOMB. Curator Dwight Swanson from the Center of Home Movies will introduce the films.
