This Sunday, 2-4 pm, Michael Kluckner is giving an illustrated talk on Selling Vancouver in the Kodachrome Era, focusing on the commercial photographers and film makers of the post-war period, as a fundraiser for the Vancouver archives.
Highlights include some classic Vancouver colour images from the 1950s/60s and vintage TV ads from the 1970s by Marv Newland, who is much more famous for his animated films including Bambi Meets Godzilla.
Here is the direct link to Eventbrite for purchasing tickets.
Michael Kluckner will also be on Stephen Quinn’s On the Coast program, CBC 1, at approximately 3:40 pm on Friday, Oct 12th talking about the program – tune in!
If you can’t make this and are interested in old films, Michael Kluckner is providing some narration and overview for films from the 1930s through the early 1980s, on Sunday, November 18th at 2 pm at the VanCity Theatre downtown. Highlights of that one include the construction of the Granville Street bridge, park board films of “people at play” in the 1950s, and a terrific “streeter” of the protest against the film Caligula on Granville Street in 1981. Michael will post details of that talk, including ticketing information, in early November on his own new events page.
Like the Kodachrome talk, this one is a fundraiser for the Archives, helping to make more of its holdings available to the public on-line.
