By chance, I visited the Turner Classic Movies site a few minutes ago and discovered that they’re showing short films all day long today and into the night. One day only.
As I post this (2pm) they’re starting a block of films by George Sidney. Later there are blocks of films by Jacques Tourner, David Lynch, Martin Scorsese, Stanley Kubrick, Roman Polanski, Jane Campion, Alfred Hitchcock, and others, including Chris Marker’s La Jetee (no word on if it’s the original French language version or the English dub).
The centerpiece program, which is the only block that will repeat, features new short films by Peter Gilbert, Griffin Dunne, Mario Van Peebles, Floria Sigismondi, Mary Sweeney, and E. Elias Merhige.
Needless to say, many of these films are tought to track down on video, so click here for the schedule then set those recorders.
