SAVING BRINTON: America Reframed

SAVING BRINTON: America Reframed

 

History teacher Mike Zahs uncovers a trove of 19th century showreels of one of America’s first motion picture impresarios, William Franklin Brinton. Zahs sets out to restore these showreels and present them to today’s audiences. In this portrait of an unlikely Midwestern folk hero, SAVING BRINTON offers a meditation on the legacy of illusionist Frank Brinton, and the magic of living history.
