Film Series Cupertino

Cupertino Library/Blue Light Cinema Film Series

Treasures from the Public Domain!

Movies are always owned by somebody somewhere. But there are many films that slip through the legal cracks for everyone to see. Each of these motion pictures has a fascinating life story, and in this session of the Cupertino Library’s Film Series, filmmaker and scholar Mark Larson explores the complicated history of films in the Public Domain. From timeless classics to YouTube masterpieces, a rich world of film art is waiting to be discovered.

Admission is Free with Your RSVP

Please join us in this celebration of an important and fascinating aspect of film history. A lively audience discussion follows every film.

 

Night of the Living Dead (1968) Director: George Romero

Thursday,  October 29th, 2015    6:30-9pm

1968 – the year of Richard Nixon, the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., the Viet Nam War and the birth of flesh-eating zombies. Perhaps the greatest American motion picture of the 1960’s, this beautiful low-budget horror masterpiece needs to be seen in light of the traumatic world events surrounding its making.
