Orphans of the Storm II: Documenting the 20th Century
University of South Carolina
Columbia, SC
March 29-31, 2001

Building upon the enthusiastic response to its inaugural orphan film
symposium (1999), the University of South Carolina is hosting a
second event on the preservation, study, and use of "orphan films."
How do these films alter our understanding of the 20th century? What
histories are to be made from the likes of home movies, outtakes,
newsreels, silent cinema, experimental works, stock footage,
educational films, government productions, amateur footage,
kinescopes, industrials, travelogues, and all manner of independent

These questions will be explored at "Orphans of the Storm II," March
29-31, 2001.  Orphans II is a true 'symposium':  participation is
open to scholars, students, artists, archivists and professionals in
any film-related field.

Three days of presentations include the screening of new film and video
work using orphaned images; papers by leading scholars and archivists
working with orphan films and television; screenings of rare historical
film documents; music, food, and good conversation.
