Film Series: Oddball Ephemera
With the introduction of the 16mm gauge in 1923 for the amateur market, the creation and presentation of films for the first time became practical outside the Hollywood studios and their overseas counterparts. Artists quickly seized on this opportunity to forge increasingly personal works with greater independence, and soon producers of industrial and educational films would embrace this small gauge as well. Today, this vast body of work, at its best unself-consciously artful and unabashedly reflective of its time, is largely ignored, poorly documented, and ripe for rediscovery. In collaboration with Oddball Archives, from whose extensive collection most of these films are drawn, we present, for your enjoyment, selections from the cream of the ephemeral genres.
