Film Series At UC Santa Barbara Screens Classic Movies, Looks At Film Preservation Issues

Posted on Friday, February 8, 2013 6:30am

Movies are a part of America’s cultural heritage. But, some of the earliest, and rarest ones are gone, because
little effort was made for decades to preserve them.

A film series on the South Coast is looking at the art, and philosophy of film preservation. It can be a controversial topic, because of sometimes differing opinions about the filmmakers original intent.

This weekend, the latest film, and talk in the series will center around the 1926 Mary Pickford movie “Sparrow.”

KCLU’s Lance Orozco talks to the director of the series at UC Santa Barbara.
