Out Of The Archives: Pittsburgh Revealed

Harris Theater


This special program screens a unique selection of moving images created in or about the Pittsburgh region from the 1920s through the 1980s.

Just a few highlights include a fantastic Kodachrome document of the 1947 May Day festivities at Chatham University, Tony Buba getting a tattoo, footage from the 1983 Memorial Day Gay Picnic, George Romero’s commercial for Cedar Point, a dual-projection experiment courtesy of Orgone Archive, and so much more. This celebration of the moving image is intended to honor the labor of our region’s archivists (professional and amateur), to recognize the makers of otherwise overlooked works, and to prompt the viewer to reconsider the very notion of the archive and what is worth saving.

Presented as part of three Rivers Film Festival, the largest and longest running annual film festival in Southwestern Pennsylvania. For more information, call (412) 361-0873.
