NEW RESTORED 35MM PRINT FROM THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS!

Considered a lost film for over 80 years, Czech film archivist Myrtil Frida came upon a print of Ramona in the postwar Soviet period at the Gosfilmofund near Moscow and brought it back with him to Prague's Narodni filmovy archiv. There it languished until 2010, when it was rediscovered by film scholars Joanna Hearne, Dydia DeLyser and Hugh Munro Neely. With the generous support of the Library of Congress and technical supervision by Rob Stone and his staff, the film was restored to much of its black-and-white glory. Ramona, the young, half-breed ward of an oppressive California sheep rancher, realizes that her indigenous blood has impeded her life's happiness. Eloping with Indian chieftain Alessandro, Ramona seeks a new life embracing her heritage, but endures tragedy and loss before tenderness and affirmation re-emerge as possibilities.

This Special screening will be accompanied by KARL EILERS at the keyboard of the Heights Mighty Wurlitzer!
