Current circumstances have caused us to cancel several Treasures from the Yale Film Archive screenings, but that doesn't mean we can't continue to share Yale's excellent film resources with Yale students, faculty, and staff. If you're missing Treasures, please enjoy the streaming versions of select 35mm films we've shown in the series over the years, along with their original Film Notes. These offerings are part of Yale University Library's extensive streaming video collections.
Before you begin, please use your Yale NetID and Cisco AnyConnect software to join the Yale Virtual Private Network (VPN). If you encounter problems with the videos, try using a different web browser.
