Faculty Writing Featured Alongside Newly Preserved 1929 Film on National Film Preservation Foundation Website

The 1929 film Flaming Canyons shows Zion Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and the Grand Canyon in stunning stencil colors.

Communication Department Chair Jennifer Peterson has written the notes to accompany a newly preserved silent-era travelogue film called Flaming Canyons (Castle Films, 1929). This is one of 50 rare silent films recently preserved by the National Film Preservation Foundation in collaboration with the Eye Filmmuseum in Amsterdam. Flaming Canyons relates to Peterson’s scholarship on travel films and early color technologies. The 13-minute film is now available for streaming on the NFPF website.
