From Vault to Screen: UCLA Festival of Preservation

The UCLA Film & Television Archive’s biennial preservation festival is renowned for bringing back rare relics of Hollywood history, affording instructive views into a neglected past. This year’s varied showcase includes a beloved Ernst Lubitsch classic, two works by a pioneering American woman director, a silent starring comedienne Constance Talmadge, a Laurel and Hardy early sound feature, and a 1970s documentary on African American activist Fred Hampton. Additional titles screen at the AFI Silver Theater.
