Saturday night marked a great success for Dr. Jason LaBelle and colleague Dr. Pete Seel. They debuted their documentary film, Stone and Steel at the Top of the World about the ancient hunters of the Colorado high country, the Moffat Road railway, and the amazing history that is Rollins Pass.


Rollins_000People turned out en mass for the premiere of the documentary, which was featured alongside a screening of “The White Desert,” Reginald Barker’s silent film classic, shown for the first time since 1978. The silent film was accompanied live by renowned pianist Hank Troy.


Doors opened Saturday evening at 6:30 p.m. for the 7:00 film and by 6:50 p.m. the 275 seat auditorium was filled to capacity. More than 50 people, having traveled from other cities, to see both the documentary and the silent film, regrettably had to be turned away.


It is our sincere hope that those who were unable to join us will accept our regrets. Please stay tuned for a future showing of the documentary.


We thank you for your continued support of the Department of Anthropology and the Department of Journalism and Technical Communication.
