UA to Host Premiere of Tucsonan’s 1968 Film on Art and Race

Although the film never was screened publicly, Michael thought it had enough historic and cultural significance that it would be worth preserving, so he contacted the University of Arizona to inquire about archiving opportunities.

Westover recognized Michael’s 26-minute film as a work that continues to be relevant today, so instead of just archiving it, the Hanson Film Institute digitized it and will host its world-premiere screening at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 17, at the UA Center for Creative Photography.
