Here First: The Daughter of the Dawn


Sun., Aug. 27, 7:30-9 p.m. 2017
Written and directed by Norbert Myles, a former vaudeville actor, THE DAUGHTER OF DAWN was publicly screened once in Los Angeles and a year later in Topeka, Kan., then vanished. Around the turn of the 21st century, a complete nitrate print mysteriously surfaced as a form of payment given to a North Carolina private detective; ascertaining the rarity of the material, he sold the print to the Oklahoma Historical Society, which supervised its restoration. THE DAUGHTER OF DAWN interprets Native American culture according to the precepts of 19th-century American melodrama. [Organizer's description]
