Get a unique glimpse into North Carolina’s past through a special highlights screening of films from Raleigh’s own Century Film Studios (1950s-1980s). Century’s owner, local cinematographer O.B. Garris (formerly of WNAO and WRAL) was a prolific cameraman, photographer, and filmmaker outside of his work with Century, and this event will also feature some of these works.
- Campaign coverage of Governors Bob Scott, Dan K. Moore, James E. Holshouser, Jr., and Jim Hunt;
- Sponsored films for NC law enforcement agencies, the Boy Scouts, and the North Carolina State Fair;
Commercials for the Record Bar, Mt. Olive Pickles, and Duke's Children’s Classic golf tournament;
- And a host of materials (even NC State Football) that illustrate the “image” of the state and its enterprises that this local company was hired to create.
This program is a collaboration between the NCSU Libraries, NC State’s Department of English, the State Archives of North Carolina, and A/V Geeks.
Event will be held at the James B. Hunt Jr. Library Auditorium, and is free and open to the public.
