Written and Directed by Azazel Jacobs
Starring Debra Winger and Tracy Letts

"The Lovers" is a refreshingly funny look at love, fidelity, and family, starring Debra Winger and Tracy Letts as a long-married and completely dispassionate husband and wife. Both are in the midst of serious affairs and are increasingly committed to their new partners. But on the brink of officially calling it quits, a spark between them suddenly and unexpectedly reignites, leading them into an impulsive romance that forces them to navigate the hilarious complications of “cheating” on their respective lovers. A mixture of humor and powerful emotion, the story is a uniquely honest take on modern marriage.

Regional Moving Image Collections and Archives in the 21st Century

Session titles are not quite final

Twenty-first century regional moving image archives discover and collect increasingly diverse audiovisual artifacts. Join us for an international gathering featuring two days of screenings and discussions on the coast of Maine.

Each session is about 30 minutes, with discussion directly following. All presentations take place in the cinema and emphasize moving images, knowledge sharing, and community collaboration among archivists, librarians, media makers, community members, and scholars. Since 2000, the Northeast Historic Film Symposium has helped build interest in regional audiovisual heritage. Past themes here.

The Symposium starts on Thursday, July 20, with projection of early film formats by Dino Everett, University of Southern California, and a book launch for Amateur Movie Making: Aesthetics of the Everyday in New England Film, 1915-1960 (Indiana University Press, 2017).

Friday morning, July 21, begins with 2016 William S. O’Farrell Fellow Andrea Mariani, University of Udine, Italy, presenting The Emergence of the Amateur Film Technology: The Amateur Cinema League and the Alan and Natalie Kattelle Technology Collection. Siobhan Hagan, Mid-Atlantic Regional Moving Image Archive, will discuss No Time for a Hiatus: Reinvigorating Local TV Preservation on the National Level. Jen VanderBurgh, St. Mary’s University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, concludes the morning with Speculative Collections: A Case to Include VHS TV Recordings in Regional Archives.

In the afternoon, four presentations come to us from the United Kingdom, U.S. Pacific Rim, and New England. Rodney Obien and Zachary Giroux, Keene State College, New Hampshire, offer Considering the Home Movies of Louis de Rochemont. Returning symposiast Michael McCluskey, University of York (U.K.), will discuss Village Biographies: Filmmaking in Rural Britain. Rachel Price and Libby Hopfauf, Moving Image Preservation of Puget Sound, bring us Moving Image Preservation of Puget Sound. Wrapping up the first day is Claudy Op den Kamp, University of Bournemouth (U.K.), The Film Archive as a Birthplace: Found Footage, Legal Provenance and the “Aesthetics of Access.”

Saturday, July 22, starts with a discussion of regional moving images in education, onetime Northeast Historic Film collection manager Gemma Scott, representing Technology Grange, Maine Student Film and Video Festival Collection. Devin Orgeron and Melissa Dollman from North Carolina State and University of North Carolina, will discuss Regional Film in the Classroom.
17:30
Following lunch, Emily Vinson, University of Houston Libraries, will draw on television series Almanac and The Capitol Report: Preserving, Describing, and Reaching Audiences for Archival Regional Content. Symposium veterans Oliver Gaycken, Siobhan Hagan and Caitlin McGrath from the University of Maryland and Greenbelt Theatre dive into Sharing Your Strengths: Models from the Mid-Atlantic. The concluding presenter is John Pettit, Temple University Libraries Special Collections, with Unedited North Philadelphia: Successes and Challenges in a Neighborhood Centered Screening.
