A Road Suited To The Times
A glass lantern slide show celebrating the 100 year anniversary of the building of the Columbia River Highway. Modeled after the great scenic highways in Europe, the Highway was officially dedicated in 1916. Using original hand colored lantern slides from the John Yeon Slide Collection at the Oregon Historical Society – projected using a 1940 Bausch & Lomb projector – OHS Archivist Matthew Cowan and narrator Doug Kenck-Crispin (orhistory.com) will take a closer look at one of the greatest roadway projects of modern times. Glass lantern slides – a decedent of the proto-cinematic magic lanterns of the 19th century - were a common audio visual element up through the 1930s until being displaced, in part, by 16mm motion picture film.

LEONARD COHEN: LIVE AT THE ISLE OF WIGHT 1970
Punk rock is thriving in the backyards of South Central and East Los Angeles. A cobbled-together family of Hispanic teens and young adults comprise the scene: bands, fans, production, marketing, and security interwoven into a sub-culture of thrash and noise and pits. The sense of belonging is palpable; emotional bonds fostered among good families and those broken, poverty and wealth, adolescence and maturity, with the music emanating a magnetic chorus for all to sing together. LOS PUNKS is a documentary feature film honestly and sincerely portraying this vibrant ‘DIY’ community.
