“Unessential Cinema Presents:

“There is an ephemeral history of cinema, running parallel to the concrete one. Its members include advertising, educational, instructional, and industrial films, often short, produced by private enterprises, and starring either real-life company employees or actors playing them. You may already have an image in mind — a scene of cheerful female co-workers, perhaps, or a mother and child talking, ending with one person turning and delivering a message to the camera. These films are ubiquitous, to the point where nearly anyone who’s ever watched TV has an idea of them, though their directors, actors, and years are often unknown. When compared with what we typically think of and consume as movies (either projected in a theater, or watched on DVD or online), they seem like a silent majority.”
