Show & Tell @ Playground: Celluloid Pueblo
October 19, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm| Free
The invention of the Southwestern imaginary has its roots in film representations dating back to the 1930s, in large part due to the footage shot by Tucson-based Western Ways Features during its 40-year history.
Jennifer L. Jenkins, UA English and School of Information associate professor, delves into the company’s work documenting the diverse lifeways of Arizona’s residents and screens rare footage in this made-for-Arizona-history-buffs presentation. A collaboration between the Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry and UA Press, this is the book release for Jenkins’ “Celluloid Pueblo: Western Ways Films and the Invention of the Postwar Southwest.”
