Posted: by http://deus-ex-machina.atspace.com/ in

Maya Stendhal Gallery is delighted to present the exhibition Unseen Cinema: Early American Avant-Garde Film 1894-1941, which will be on view from September 4 through October 4, 2008. The product of the largest film preservation endeavor ever, Unseen Cinema is the only comprehensive collection of independent American film from the earliest days of cinema. Widely considered a masterpiece of film restoration and preservation, the ambitious project took over 10 years to complete, realized through the steadfast commitment of Anthology Film Archives along with sixty of the world’s largest film archive institutions including the Museum of Modern Art, The Library of Congress, The British Film Institute, and George Eastman House. Film curator Bruce Posner and film historian Robert A. Haller organized the project, and David Shepard made the series available for digital format.
