The Ray Browne Conference on Cultural and Critical Studies is pleased to present a special screening of the documentary Saving Brinton on Saturday, April 7 at 7:00pm. A presentation by the filmmakers and Michael Zahs will follow the screening. SYNOPSIS In a farmhouse basement on the Iowa countryside, eccentric collector Mike Zahs makes a remarkable discovery: the showreels of the man who brought moving pictures to America’s Heartland. Among the treasures: rare footage of President Teddy Roosevelt, the first moving images from Burma, a lost relic from magical effects godfather Georges Méliés. These are the films that introduced movies to the world. And they didn’t end up in Iowa by accident. The old nitrate reels are just some of the artifacts that belonged to William Franklin Brinton.
