Thursday May 17th: Editor’s Pick

7:30 at Museum of the Moving Image [Program & Tix]

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERATOR
Martel | 2004 | US | 66m
*Martel in person
7:30 at MoMI

“Enormously imaginative! A found object of sorts that begins as a historical overview of female telephone operators, but gradually evolves into a wryly observed portrait of human society in the technocratic age. Composed entirely of footage skillfully edited from some 100 industrial, corporate and educational films produced by the Bell companies from 1910-89, pic provides an hour of nonstop visual and intellectual stimulation.”
Scott Foundas, Variety
