Lost & Found Film Club: STRANGE SPECIES

Lost & Found Film Club presents a carefully curated hodgepodge of scattershot celluloid, packed as densely as library stacks and screening in the gloriously fuzzed-out 16mm format — plus, grilled cheese sandwiches will be available! What began as an after-hours Cinefamily staff tradition is now our showcase of ephemeral, industrial, educational, and sponsored films of the 20th century never intended to be seen on the big screen… until now. On any given Lost & Found night, the program may contain children’s films, social engineering and training films, advertisements, mental hygiene madness, animation, documentaries, student experiments, home movies on rusted reels — pretty much anything that isn’t a commercial feature film, accompanied by the velvety crunch of grilled cheese sandwiches. Come see what slipped through the splices. Did we forget to mention that GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICHES WILL BE AVAILABLE?!

November’s STRANGE SPECIES program takes a broad look at creatures great and small, featuring nature documentaries on adorable baby animals, experimental films made with insects, animation created with fungus, plants & crustaceans, Claymation dinosaurs, and of course, the most incredible critters of all: human beings.
