Saving Brinton, the documentary that showcases the Brinton films and local historian Michael Zahs, is two steps closer to being eligible for consideration for an Academy Award.

Saving Brinton will begin its run of shows in Greenwich Village, New York City, on May 18th. It will then go to Los Angeles for a run starting June 8th. Both locations will include at least a week of showings four times each day. This step is what will make the documentary eligible for consideration for an Oscar in 2019. One of the directors, Andrew Sherburne, says the nearly 90-minute story not only features Zahs and the antique films, but also Washington County overall.

Before heading to the coasts, Saving Brinton will be shown at the Performing Arts Center in Coralville on March 17th at 7 p.m. And Zahs will have a separate program about the Brintons at 2 p.m. March 18th at the Coralville Public Library, including old films and magic lantern slides.
