Doomsday / Apocalypse 16mm Vintage Short Film Festival!
DOOMSDAY! The History of WW2, the Cold war & Space Race on original 16mm film with actual items too!
The Space Race, the Cold War and the Atomic Era fueled an era of exploration and invention that still influences products, design and culture to this day! The Museum of Interesting Things brings together this trend with an exhibition filled with items inspired by the space race, cold war & WW2 with actual items from Nasa, WW2 and the cold war as well as the Atomic/Radiology items, Rations Program, Civil Defense and unique spy items. We even have a Thermal Nuclear warhead! People get to actually see authentic space race, military and domestic items from this era, including an actual Nasa Space Shuttle Jumpsuit!
The Museum also has a massive collection of original vintage WW2/Cold War and Nasa footage on original 16mm film. We have the Duck and Cover, private SNAFU and more! Also Nasa films much of which were produced internally by Nasa for the news stations in the 1950’s through the 1970’s on such programs like the Saturn and Apollo programs as well as interviews with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin and Dr. Robert Goddard, Wehrner Von Braun. In between each short film we demonstrate items from WW2, the Space Race and Cold War.
We will email the Zoom link Sunday if you bought a ticket, it is of course a virtual event, enjoy the films from your comfy sofa 🙂
