Popcorn and a Movie is a screening of T.A.L.K. (Tell, Archive, Listen and Keep) lighting history videos featuring venerable designers reminding us of how to see light, what makes a good design, and advice for emerging professionals. Hear their thoughts on education, technology, regulations, and practical advice.

Watch as Lesley Wheel, Howard Brandston, Joanne Lindsley, Jules Fisher, Paul Marantz, and many more luminaries of the NY lighting community share their insights and emotions.

The series of interviews T.A.L.K. (Tell, Archive, Listen and Keep), is an IES New York City Section's History Committee production and works to record many leading figures in the Lighting Community. Our program will feature designers explaining their philosophy of lighting and how they practiced their profession.

The mission of the History Committee is to interview current practitioners, and to give homage to the pioneers in this industry by crediting their inventions, innovations and their part in evolving future of our industry.
