Join us as we welcome the Emmy-winning Yale graduate and New Haven native Nick Doob '69 for a screening and discussion of four of his newly-preserved films. In 2016, the Yale Film Study Center was awarded a grant from the National Film Preservation Foundation to preserve three shorts Doob made while he was still a student at Yale: Plastic Saints (1967), Costumed Dancer (1968), and 42nd St Movie (1968). The FSC also recently completed preservation of his feature-length documentary Street Music (1979), and all four films will have their preservation premieres at this event. 16mm prints from the Yale Film Archive.
