Mark Your Calendar: Quetzalcoatl

If you are a regular reader of this blog you may remember a post about the project to preserve the film Quetzalcoatl. The long awaited world premier will be on April 25 at 7pm in the Arthur M. Loew Auditorium here in Hanover, NH.

The press release from the Hood Museum notes that the film interprets Jose Clemente Orozco's monumental Dartmouth mural The Epic of American Civilization with a spare commentary and a commissioned music score. It was written, produced, and directed by Robert Canton, Dartmouth Class of 1958.

A discussion led by Mary Coffey, Associate Professor of Art History, will follow the film screening. The event is co-sponsored by the Hood Museum of Art and Dartmouth College Library in conjunction with Preservation Week.
