Texas Premiere of THE DAUGHTER OF DAWN (1920) Screening & Panel | Jan 25

AFS Film DAUGHTER OF THE DAWN

Texas Archive of the Moving Image and Austin Film Society host the Texas premiere of THE DAUGHTER OF DAWN (1920) on January 25, at The Marchesa Theatre. Considered lost for decades, this recently restored Texas-produced film stars an all-Native American cast of Kiowas and Comanches, including the son and daughter of legendary Comanche war Chief Quanah Parker. Immediately following the film, a panel featuring film scholars will discuss cinema and its representation of Native Americans, as well as archival and historical implications for celebrity and public memory. In 2013, THE DAUGHTER OF DAWN was named to the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry due to its historical and cultural significance, but the film has never been screened in its “home state”… until now. #Austin #ATX
