2018 Domitor Conference. The George Eastman Museum holds one of the largest collections of films made between 1894 and 1915, collected over a period of seventy years and rescued from oblivion through systematic preservation. In two consecutive evenings, we are presenting a sample of the most fascinating works-often endowed with gorgeous colors-created by the pioneers of cinema during the first decades of its existence. The program, curated by Tara Najd Ahmadi, is held in conjunction with the biannual conference of Domitor, the Association for the Study of Early Cinema, organized and hosted by the museum between June 11 and 16 in collaboration with the University of Rochester and with the participation of the most eminent scholars in this burgeoning field of research. The selection for the two special events is international in scope: all the major producing countries from the period are represented in the programs. A detailed list of the films to be exhibited will be distributed before each show. Live piano by Philip C. Carli.
