Bruce Posner talks about restoring the acclaimed documentary "Moana with Sound." The original "Moana" was filmed in Samoa by legendary documentarian Robert Flaherty and his wife. It was released as a silent film in 1926 to much acclaim. Over 50 years later, their daughter, Monica, returned to the same island where it was filmed and recorded authentic audio, creating a completely synchronized sound track for the previously silent film. It was released in 1980 as "Moana with Sound."
EVENT: Bruce Posner will introduce the 6:00 P.M. screening of "Moana with Sound," at Film Forum, 209 West Houston Street, New York, NY 10014, on November 13th.
