About the Event

Premiere Screening of Newly Restored Version!

Filmed on location in northern California, this tale of a lumberman battling to save the redwoods on his family’s land has not been widely seen in over 100 years!  The film was considered lost until a print was discovered in the Gosfilmofond Archive in Moscow in 2010 and it has recently been re-released with titles translated from Cyrillic.  

Directed by James Cruze | Starring Wallace Reid, Grace Darmond, and William Brunton 

Preserved by the Library of Congress | 2022 Re-release translated and produced by Edward Lorusso 

With live musical accompaniment by Cliff Retallick
