The UCLA Film and Television Archive new From Nitrate to Digital series is all about cinematic technology, past and present, and will feature discussions with film scholars, preservationists and artists to help put into perspective the direction cinema is heading. It’s first part of the series begins Saturday, with a nitrate print of Josef von Sternerg’s 1935 THE DEVIL IS A WOMAN, followed by Steven Soderbergh’s 2009 THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE which was shot on a Red One digital camera.

Hosted by director Curtis Hanson and with an appearance by Soderbergh, this should be a truly illuminating  event.

Other highlights of the series include a restored version of THE TOLL OF THE SEA, RAIN OR SHINE and HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE.
