Estimated Length: 
This event will last approximately 2 hours.

Presented in conjunction with The Jim Henson Legacy, this mind-blowing collection of shorts, crazy commercials, and other rarities from the Henson vault was one of The Jim Henson Legacy's first compilation screenings, and now, it's even better -- remastered in definition from original film elements and revised with newly discovered materials -- some of which has not been seen in 50 years. Highlights include excerpts from experimental TV programs The Cube and Youth '68, and Time Piece, the 8-minute Oscar-nominated experimental masterpiece directed by (and starring) Jim Henson himself. The event concludes with a Q&A with Craig Shemin from The Jim Henson Legacy.
