IndieCollect Shorts Encore

IndieCollect is a film preservation organization founded by Sandra Schulberg in 2010 to save and restore independent film. They have helped preserve around 70 titles to date, including Jazz on a Summer’s Day, The Atomic Cafe, Nationtime, and Cane River. As part of Restored & Rediscovered, we are featuring a number of IndieCollect shorts and a feature by women directors.

This encore presentation includes:

It Happens to Us (Amalie R. Rothschild. 30m. 1972): Made in 1971 by an all-woman crew, women who are rich and poor, young and old, Black and white, married and unmarried, tell dramatic stories about why and how they ended their pregnancies when abortion was still illegal.

Woo Who? May Wilson (Amalie R. Rothschild. 33m. 1970): This pioneering feminist film is a vibrant profile of the defiant May Wilson, a self-taught artist who, at age 60—after her children had moved out of the house and her husband of 40 years had left her for a younger woman—moved to New York City and pursued an independent life and career in 1965.

Painting the Town: The Illusionistic Murals of Richard Haas (Amalie R. Rothschild. 56m. 1990): Rothschild fashions her own exuberant film mural based on the life and very public work of the celebrated architectural muralist Richard Haas, whose trompe l’œil artistry transforms cityscapes in ways that confound and delight. Nancy Schreiber collaborated with Amalie R. Rothschild on the film as her director of photography.
