Movies are a part of America’s cultural heritage. But, some of the earliest, and rarest ones are gone, because
little effort was made for decades to preserve them.
A film series on the South Coast is looking at the art, and philosophy of film preservation. It can be a controversial topic, because of sometimes differing opinions about the filmmakers original intent.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco talks to the director of the series at UC Santa Barbara.
