In the spring of 2018, we were contacted by Diana Fried who in 1987 had produced a 27-minute documentary film on the carpentry and weaving workshops in the sierras that were funded and carried out by Juan Negrín through his foundation ADESMO. She has donated all of her raw footage, the master audio and video tapes of her film, cassette tapes of interviews, color slides, and all related files. In the fall and winter of 2018, we put together a team of experts to digitalize the original film and all 860 minutes of raw footage which contains interviews and other material of interest. Digitalization was completed by mid-December 2018. Our next step in this project is to raise funds to cover the cost of editing and creating a series of short films that will be posted to this website. A larger project for the future will be to restore the original documentary with the Spanish language audio.
