Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art says
Newly-restored cinema rarity The Daughter of Dawn 1920, with its entirely Native American cast, will screen on 27 September at 1pm with live accompaniment by David Bailey on the Gallery’s 1929 Wurlitzer Organ.

Thought to have been lost for over 85 years The Daughter of Dawn, which was restored in 2013, features members of the Comanche and Kiowa Tribes as well as the son and daughter of legendary Comanche chief Quanah Parker. The film centres on a love triangle, interspersed with the scenes of courting and unrequited love are battles, dances, and buffalo hunting. The Texas Film Company shot the film in the Wichita Mountains of Oklahoma in 1920 with a cast of over 300.

The popularity of the Western film is the focus of a new program showing at the Australian Cinémathèque at GOMA.
