According to this Website, the Edward S. Curtis film, In the Land of the Head Hunters has been restored, re-evaluated and framed with a live orchestral arrangement. Shot in 1914, this silent melodramatic film featured many people from the Kwakwakaâ€™wakw Nation.
It looks like the Gwawina Dance group will be performing at the Vancouver screening of the film. I had the pleasure of working with this traditional singing and dance group from Alert Bay, when I was in Banff several years ago. Too bad I’ll be working at the Jazz festival the night that this restored film screens here in Vancouver.
