The James Card Memorial Lecture
On Sunday December 8, 2013 at 5:00 pm in Dryden Theatre
James Card—the "founding father" of film curatorship at George Eastman House—built an amazing collection of films with limited resources and a contagious enthusiasm for movies. How did he find (and preserve) so many treasures of the moving image? Janice E. Allen, an undisputed leader in film restoration, witnessed Card's collaboration with her father, John E. Allen, an unsung pioneer in the field. This year's tribute will feature the screening of some of the most beautiful unknown jewels in the museum's film holdings gathered by John Allen and Card in the course of their joint adventure in the rediscovery of our cinematic past.
