Lost World film discussion

Wednesday, July 7, 2021

We will talk about the 1925 silent feature "The Lost World", based on a story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This movie has been inspiring our ‘creature features’ for nearly 100 years. Let’s talk about what has and hasn’t changed in storytelling, movies, and special effects from then to now. Where do we still see the influences from this historic movie? A 105 minute long, 2016 edit of the movie, from Flicker Alley, can be viewed ahead of time on the library’s Kanopy streaming service by logging in with your library card. For more information and the Zoom invitation, or call the Reference Department at (575) 528-4005.
