Producer Laurence Cotton will screen the film C.E.S. Wood and provide a Q & A discussion after the showing.
Aired as part of the Oregon Experience on OPB, the film covers the life and career of C.E.S. Wood, taking as its central story Wood's participation in the Nez Perce war, his sympathies with the Indian side, his role in recording Chief Joseph's surrender speech, his friendship with Chief Joseph, the impact of the Indian war experience on his career, and the friendship that ensued between the Wood family and the Nez Perce, still very much alive today.
The film also focuses on his career and influence in Portland (including his role in founding the Portland Art Museum and Multnomah County Library).
In conjunction with the C.E.S. Wood in the John Wilson Special Collections exhibition at Central Library.
