Underground Film Night: Obscure Super 8 & 16mm Movies | Berkeley

Underground Films: The Big Parade (1925) 8mm/Sound | BerkeleyThe Berkeley Underground Film Society (BUFS) is an all ages club for collectors, researchers, and film enthusiasts in the East Bay and San Francisco area.

Their goal is to review and share a selective film history of movies on film.

Every Sunday, they screen buried, rarely projected, or otherwise obscure 8mm, Super 8, and 16mm prints from their collection.

Underground Films: The Big Parade (1925) 8mm/Sound | BerkeleyThe Big Parade (1925) 8mm/Sound
The idle son of a rich businessman joins the army when the U.S.A. enters World War One. He is sent to France, where he becomes friends with two working-class soldiers. He also falls in love with a Frenchwoman, but has to leave her to move to the front-line.

The film was groundbreaking for not glorifying the war or its human costs, exemplified by the lead character’s loss of a leg from battle wounds. It heavily influenced all subsequent war films, especially All Quiet on the Western Front (1930).
