Kimberly Tarr (MIAP '09) Presents at Northeast Historic Film's 2009 Summer Symposium, July 24–25

A multi–disciplinary gathering devoted to the history, theory, and preservation of moving images, Northeast Historic Film's Summer Symposium brought archivists, artists, and international scholars together for a two-day symposium on July 24–25.

The 2009 event, "Ways of Watching," investigated how, where, and why we watch amateur and noncommercial films in both the past and the present. Recent MIAP alumna Kimberly Tarr was one of twelve presenters who delivered papers at this year's event. Her paper, Round the World and Back Again, examined the production and exhibition of Adelaide Pearson's largely unknown travel films.

Support from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences enabled Kimberly's participation in this important event.
