An old film of Ishi gets new life with new processing. A new color version added.

Ishi was the last Native American to have contact with Europeans. It’s a tragic story but in this clip there were only a few frames that survived a chemical fire right there in the film canister. Improperly stored. The frames were not adjacent frames but with the new processing you get to see Ishi demonstrate his technique with the bow. Interestingly enough Ishi was the only example of the Mongolian release I.E. using the thumb to pull the bow string.

No delay
