Jim Henson: Commercials & Experiments (in HD)

Part of Jim Henson's World (2017)
Sunday, August 20, 2017, 1:00 p.m.
Museum of the Moving Image - Redstone Theater


Hosted by Craig Shemin, President of The Jim Henson Legacy 

This mind-blowing collection of shorts, crazy commercials, and other rarities from the Henson vault was one of The Jim Henson Legacy’s first compilation screenings, and now, it is even better— remastered in high definition from original film elements and revised with newly discovered material—some of which has not been seen in 50 years. Highlights include an industrial film for Wilson’s Meat that must be seen to be believed, excerpts from experimental TV programs The Cube and Youth ‘68, and Time Piece, the eight-minute Oscar-nominated experimental masterpiece directed by (and starring) Jim Henson himself. The program runs approximately 85 minutes.
