The Rose of Rhodesia, 1918"/>

The Rose of Rhodesia rediscovered and available for online viewing

Harold M. Shaw’s The Rose of Rhodesia (1918), one of the earliest remaining feature films shot in South Africa and a classic of cinema history, was recently rediscovered by the National Filmmuseum in Amsterdam.

Screening the Past, an online journal of media and history, recently published an issue dedicated to The Rose of Rhodesia that offers an in-depth look into the film as well as an online stream of the entire restored print.

Thought Equity Motion and Filmmuseum collaborated to digitize the film and provide the delivery technology to enable this unique broadband video viewing opportunity. The film has received positive reviews, like this one written by The Bioscope, a blog dedicated to the subject of early and silent cinema.
