"COMING TO LIGHT tells more than the story of its main subject, "Edward
S. Curtis and the North American Indians." It tells, too, of the
tragedy of cultural loss and hopes for recovery of memory. The film
honors the great achievements of Curtis by placing his pictures in a
vibrant frame of sorrow, desire, and promise. In its sensitive and
intelligent fusion of image, sound, and story, the film offers an
extraordinary experience of living history. It cannot be praised
enough." Alan Trachtenberg, Neil Gray Professor of English and American
Studies, Yale University
=20
"Beautifully filmed, skillfully edited and well-paced, "Coming To Light"
is highly recommended for courses on North American Indians, visual
anthropology, and American popular culture. Well researched and deftly
touching on the complex politics of cross-cultural visual
representation, Makepeace's film exhibits a balanced perspective on
Curtis as a trailblazer in visual ethnography." Harold Prins, American
Anthropologist
=20
"An unusually well-balanced view of Edward Curtis' life and works as the
best known photographer of North American Indian people during the first
part of the twentieth century." Bill Sturtevant, Curator of Ethnology,
National Museum of National History, Smithsonian Institution
=20
"Remarkable, a fascinating and thorough look at a photographer whose
40,000 images recorded Native American life." Kenneth Turan, Los
Angeles Times
=20
"A phenomenal film. Well crafted, intelligent, and beautiful to
behold...brings historical depth and cultural context to our
understanding of Curtis' photographs and his monographs on Native
Americans...I highly recommend this piece for use in Art History
courses, Photography courses, Native American Studies, and especially in
Anthropology." Julia Thompson, Professor of Anthropology, Mount
Holyoke College=20

------_=_NextPart_001_01C730E9.BCDD9560-- VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
