For the month of October, and going into the first Wednesday of November, the Walker Art Center Moving Image department is showcasing the work of French filmmaker Jean Epstein, one of the greats among the pioneers of independent cinema. Epstein directed 44 films during his career -- shorts, narratives and experimental documentaries. The Walker featured nine of his films, four narrative features and five short films. Below are photos I snapped during the inspection process. The last batch of films I'm running Wednesday, November 4th, are perhaps the best looking 35mm prints I've ever come in contact with. The final evening of films include The Three Sided Mirror (1927, 38 minutes), A Song for Poplars (1931, 6 minutes), and The Storm Tamer (1947, 22 minutes).
