World Records Symposium

Thu April 20 @ 8:00 pm - Fri April 21 @ 10:00 pm

The 2017 World Records symposium draws on the Wisconsin Center for Film and Theater Research’s Vitaphone films archive to explore the portrayal of popular and folk musics during the 1920s and 1930s. Vitaphone Project director Ron Hutchinson serves as this year’s keynote speaker and on Thursday night will introduce the Midwest premiere of the recently-restored Molly Picon, The Celebrated Character Comedienne (1929), along with live musical performances and shorts from the Vitaphone vaults.

Co-hosted by the Mayrent Institute for Yiddish Culture and the Wisconsin Center for Film and Theater Research.

All events are free and open to the public.
