White folks call it madness but we call it Hi De Ho: An “All Colored” Vitaphone Program

February 27 @ 7:00 pm

Located in Brooklyn, Vitaphone Studios was a prolific producer of short films during the transition to sound. Between 1929 and 1936, Vitaphone used talent from the vaudeville circuits and nearby Broadway to make dozens of “live” shorts featuring the era’s biggest acts. Organized by artist and media archivist Ina Archer, this program features such legendary African American performers as the Nicholas Brothers, Cab Calloway, Nina Mae McKinney, Lester Young, Buck & Bubbles, and many more! Visit this page closer to the screening date for the complete lineup. (program approx. 120 mins.; DCP, 16mm, and 35mm)
