Please join the G. William Jones Film & Video Collection’s moving image curator, Jeremy Spracklen, on Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. at the Texas Theater for a screening of Peter Flynn’s 2015 documentary, The Dying of the Light. Following the screening, Flynn, the director of this documentary will be available for a Q & A hosted by Spracklen. The subject of this documentary explores “the history and craft of motion picture presentation through the lives and stories of the last generation of career projectionists. By turns humorous and melancholic, their candid reflections on life in the booth reveal a world that has largely gone unnoticed. The result is a loving tribute to the art and romance of the movies—and to the unseen people who brought the light to our screens.”*
