Greg Wilsbacher, curator of the Newsfilm Collections at the University of South Carolina–Columbia, will visit the Warhol to introduce an eclectic program of 35mm Fox Movietone newsreels from headlines past. The Fox Movietone News Collection at USC provides one of the most detailed snapshots of American and global culture in the decades before television. Consisting of over 2,000 hours of content, much of which are original camera negative outtakes, the Collection records deeds great and small, serious and silly. “Fit to Print” brings an hour of these early sound news stories to Pittsburgh for the first time to be screened in glorious 35mm.
