Local History Through The Camera Lens 

When: Tue., Oct. 13, 7 p.m. 2015
Price: free


HUNT LIBRRARY AT N.C. STATE—We often think of the remnants of history as static: papers, books, archives and artifacts. Instead, the A/V Geeks and N.C. State present a colorful, engaging program of short films, made between the 1950s and the 1980s, from Century Film Studios, a Raleigh-based work-for-hire studio owned by filmmaker O.B. Garris. The shorts reveal an idiosyncratic local history through campaign coverage of former governors, sponsored films for the Boy Scouts and the State Fair and ads for the likes of Record Bar and Mt. Olive Pickles. Devin Orgeron, an associate professor of Film Studies at N.C. State, Melissa Dollman, a media archivist who researched the collection, Kim Anderson of the State Archives of North Carolina and Skip Elsheimer of A/V Geeks offer context for the films and local industry in a discussion. 7 p.m., free, 1070 Partners Way, Raleigh, 919-515-7110, www.lib.ncsu.edu/huntlibrary. —Allison Hussey
