Cinemagazine items: A little machine deals with dirty glasses - it washes, dries and sterilises them at the rate of one every three seconds; severly disabled people can drive around like the rest of us by steering by foot; a working model of the solar system illuminates and illustrates many of the mysteries of astronomy; research at St Andrew’s University into the survival mechanisms of the human cell, is revealing something of the complex ways in which they work.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
