FILM SERIES
Jean Desmet’s Dream Factory, 1906-1916
January 14-21
Belgian-born film impresario Jean Desmet (1875-1956) spurred the growth of a new urban film culture in Europe before and during World War I. Desmet’s collection of 35mm prints and related materials is now a vast visual-historical archive preserved at the EYE Film Museum in Amsterdam. In 2011 the Desmet collection was inscribed on UNESCO’s Memory of the World register — one of the few film collections in the world to receive this designation. In association with EYE Film Institute, the Gallery presents six programs chosen from Desmet’s holdings.
