Bugs, breakups, suffragettes, and guinea pigs

AV Geeks: Doomsday for Bugs

AV Geeks: Doomsday for Bugs

In the “A/V Geeks at the Hunt Library” event series, A/V Geeks founder and NC State alumnus Skip Elsheimer joins forces with NC State faculty members to present and discuss unusual and exemplary classroom instructional films, newsreels, and documentaries spanning the last 80 years. Playing upon its value as both kitsch and cultural documentation, Elsheimer screens this neglected wonderment of film in the Hunt Library Teaching & Visualization Lab throughout the semester. All four spring screenings are free and open to the public.
