Skip Elsheimer of the AV Geeks Film Archive discusses the archive as a research space and a cultural resource, followed by a screening of some of the weirdest stuff that the Archive has acquired in the last year.

Skip Elsheimer is the man behind NC's AV Geeks archive, a resource comprising 36,000 reels of 16mm films rescued from dumpsters and estates. He does ongoing work to digitize NASA's film archive, and he screens footage from the archive at venues around the world as Skip the AV Geek.
