Film Preservation

To properly preserve and restore the films that Aloha created, including such titles as With Car and Camera Around the World and The Last of the Bororos, it is important to locate and evaluate the current condition of the most original or best surviving film elements. Due to the separation of Aloha’s materials, information exchange between archives is essential. This is the only way we will know how to select the best source to create preservation masters and access copies, and best reflect Aloha’s original work.

The River of Death (1934)

In order to capture its lovely emerald green tint, we digitized the nitrate print of The River of Death a couple of years ago. We’re pleased to present The River of Death here, and are grateful to Heather and May for the information they provided us about our holdings on this most interesting woman.
