Somewhere between chick tracts and YouTube lies the lost artform of the filmstrip – what some critics call the ur-Powerpoint. This program celebrates not only the educational filmstrips that delighted and bored students of a certain age, but commercial titles used to promote everything from lab safety to the new fall fashion season … circa 1971.
