Wausau Films: "The Lumberjack"

Sat., 10/25/14, 3:00pm 5:00pm @ UW Center for Civic Engagement

This event has passed. View upcoming events.

Join us for a screening of "The Lumberjack" (1914), the oldest film shot in Wisconsin that still exists in its original, complete form. Cast with Wausau locals, this 16-minute silent film tells a romantic story set against the backdrop of the city's lumber mills. Musician Dan Larson will provide accompaniment and the Wisconsin Center for Film & Theater Research staff will discuss its restoration.

Following the film, we will show Stephen Schaller's "When You Wore a Tulip and I Wore a Big Red Rose" (1983), a documentary that details the discovery of "The Lumberjack" and includes footage of Wausau and interviews with locals.

This event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited and available on a first come, first served basis.

Presented in collaboration with the Marathon County Historical Society and the Wisconsin Center for Film & Theater Research.
