The Dying of the Light with Filmmaker Q/A
The Dying of the Light 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.
“Peter Flynn’s lovely documentary ‘The Dying of the Light’ is an elegy to a century of watching movies and to the craftspeople who made it possible.”
Filmmaker Peter Flynn in attendance for this screening. Special Q/A hosted by Jeremy Spracklen, Curator of the G William Jones Film Collection at SMU.
