A very special series of films screened on a repertory basis, the Essential Cinema Repertory collection consists of programs of shorts and hundreds of features assembled in 1970-75 by Anthology’s Film Selection Committee – James Broughton, Ken Kelman, Peter Kubelka, P. Adams Sitney, and Jonas Mekas. It was an ambitious attempt to define the art of cinema. The project was never completed but even in its unfinished state the series provides an uncompromising critical overview of cinema’s history. The titles are still being screened under the brand of "Essential Cinema". Now and then additional titles are added to the collection.
