New From The Bailey Film Series: New Zealand Highlights says
Former Museum director Alfred M. Bailey conducted fieldwork around the world during the mid-20th century, documenting it through journals, photographs, and moving images. He shared his adventures during a popular film lecture series featuring his motion pictures and a live talk. Fortunately, his lectures were taped, so with the help of CinemaLab, the Image Archives Department has produced new digital versions of Bailey’s films.

Join us as we present one of Bailey’s favorites. First shown in 1954, New Zealand Highlights wowed audiences with looks at rare and endemic birds in rugged sheep country. Filmed well before there were established flights to this island country, the Denver audience was catching a first glimpse of a country they had only heard about. Now you too can see the Maori cultural land of Rotorua before it became a popular tourist destination. Hosted by René O’Connell, Museum image archivist, and Robert David of CinemaLab, who will discuss the preservation and digitization of dying film.
