The Secret Lives of Objects

Manual Cinema created ten short videos for the Chicago History Museum’s exhibit The Secret Lives of Objects. Each video tells the story of an object in the exhibit, inviting museum goers to learn about objects extraordinary and familiar as they emerge from their crates, shelves, and vaults to tell their tales.

Exhibited 2015-2017

Commissioned by The Chicago History Museum
