In rural Iowa, a beloved history teacher named Michale Zahs preserves the century-old showreels of one of America's first motion picture impresarios and sets out to premiere the films at the world's oldest continuously operating movie theatre. Along the way, he discovers he's saved an early short by France's Georges Mélies, one of cinema's founding fathers, a film that had been thought forever lost. Cosponsored with the Wharton Studio Museum as part of Silent Movie Month. More at
