Shaolin Rescue

Shaolin Rescue from gerard donaghy on Vimeo.

The newest from Glitterbeast has nothing to do with books or authors.

Instead, it features Dan Halsted, a film programmer in Portland, Oregon who rescued almost 200 rare 35mm old-school kung-fu flicks from certain destruction.

It’s also a mediation on the importance of celluloid as we move towards an all-digital age.

Dan was a gracious subject, giving us tons of his time and access to film his wonderful collection of films.

A special shout out to Glitterbeast’s partner-in-crime Kris Kerr. It wouldn’t have turned out nearly as well if it wasn’t for his help.
