The fifth screening of the Nineteen23 film series, titled “Inside Out: Pictures of Health,” will take place on Sunday, March 14, at the 14KT Cabaret at Maryland Art Place (218 W. Saratoga Street, Baltimore, MD 21201). Showtime is at 7:30 p.m., and the program will last ninety minutes, including an intermission.

This program will look at rarely-seen films produced by, or in collaboration with, health professionals and institutions. Some films in the program present internal views of living bodies intended to be seen in medical and scientific contexts, while others were produced to educate the general public about ethical issues in medicine or to promote medical and public health causes. Compiled from the archival collections of the Johns Hopkins Medical Archives, the program represents films produced or collected by this institution from the late 1920s into the 1970s.


The guest curator for this program is Timothy Wisniewski, visual materials archivist at the Alan Mason Chesney Medical Archives of the Johns Hopkins University. Films to be screened include Journey into Medicine (1947), a film directed by Willard Van Dyke for United States Information Service to promote careers in public health and American methods in public health education; Who should survive?: one of the choices on our conscience (1972), one of the first films to address bioethics in a hospital setting; Development of the fertilized rabbit ovum (1929), the first visual documentation of the development and fertilization of a mamallian egg and the first film of its kind to be widely distributed and seen by non-scientific audiences in the United States.

Nineteen23 is a monthly film series highlighting the diversity of short, non-theatrical films made since the 16mm film gauge was introduced in 1923. From documentary and avant-garde cinema to factory and scientific films, this series will feature work that was never screened in movie theaters and is not available on DVD. These lost genres and forgotten films will be resurrected each month, along with contemporary work that has been influenced by the long shadow of the cinema.

The 14KT Cabaret is an on-going series of performance, music, dance, film and video in an informal setting.The14KT Cabaret is an artist-run program of Maryland Art Place supported by public admission and in-kind contributions of local businesses. The 14KT Cabaret is located at 218 W. Saratoga Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21201 and is wheelchair accessible.
