Field Recording of JFK Campaign Speech for 1960 Presidential Election 2019 World Day for Audiovisual Heritage

Gartenberg Media Enterprises presents a rare audio clip from a field recording during John F. Kennedy’s 1960 Presidential Campaign. In his remarks, JFK encapsulates William Faulkner’s famous observation that "The past is never dead.

Sixty years later this divide between the two political parties is even more profoundly evident.

Manohla Dargis’ “obit” of Alice Guy Blaché (NYT)

Hou Hsiao-hsien's THREE TIMES at Film at Lincoln Center series 50th Mixtape: Free Double Features on September 5th
