1 available of 1 items

International in scope, this groundbreaking collection features over 10 hours of material, comprised of 25 films spanning 1902-1943, including many rare titles not widely available until now, from shorts to feature films, live action to animation, commercial narratives to experimental works. This anthology is dedicated to the memory of David Shepard (1940-2017), without whom these films, along with countless others, would simply not have been made available in such beautifully restored editions.
