A New Film From The Museum Archives: Desert Islands says
Former Museum director Alfred M. Bailey conducted fieldwork around the world, documenting it through journals, photographs, and moving images. In 1966, Bailey presented Desert Islands to an enthusiastic audience during his popular film lecture series.

With the help of Cinema Lab, the Image Archives Department has produced a new digital motion picture of Bailey’s presentation covering “out-of-the-way islands off Baja California” and concluding with highlights of the Galápagos Islands. This film is truly unique and includes footage of San Benedicto Island, which experienced a volcanic eruption shortly after the expedition.

Hosted by René O’Connell, Museum image archivist, and Robert David of Cinema Lab, who will discuss the preservation and digitization of dying film.
