Movie - Saving Brinton

Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum
West Branch, IA

Sunday, October 14, 2018 - 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. CDT


Saving Brinton is an enchanting 90-minute documentary that tells the story of a collection of 130 early nitrate films.

The focus of the documentary was initially the discovery of a rare collection of some of the earliest motion pictures, stored in an Iowa shed. But it soon shifted to an iconic rural figure, Michael Zahs, a retired junior high teacher from rural Washington, Ia., who is known all over the state for his history presentations, including these rare films.

The movie is free with paid museum admission.
