Wouldn't it be nice if they would videotape the whole thing and at least make it available in the future to visitors to the Library? Does anybody know if they are planning something like that?

i don't think a recording of the presentation is planned.

DV noted he needed special permission from the Massine estate, if mem. serves, to present these films, so it would seem the event is approved for the day, tho' it's possible w/ all these films in the JRDC individuals might be able to apply for permission for any films that are restricted and get it for research purposes.

DV has done these for a few months running now: he's shown and introduced some Charles Atlas Cunningham films, Ashton's FILLE MAL GARDEE, EVERGREEN with Jesse Matthews, and some James Waring films.
