Descriptive Entry
This accession consists of audiovisual records created during the production of "American Encounters," "To Coexist: Diversity and Development," "Diversity Endangered," and "The Beauty and Diversity of Our Planet." "American Encounters" is a series of eight videos about Hispanic and Native American culture in New Mexico. The first five videos were produced in 1992 and shown in the permanent exhibition "American Encounters." These videos include "Pueblo Resistance" (14:14); "Many Voices" (9:29); "Hispanic Resistance" (11:20); "Matachines Spanish: Bernalillo" (8:19); and "Matachines Indian: San Juan" (8:01). In 1994, three 20-minute videos were added to the series to be distributed for educational purposes. These videos include "Only Death Will Take Me From This Place," a look at village life in northern New Mexico; "Spreading Beauty Wherever I Go," on the "lowrider" cars of New Mexico; and "Corn Is Who We Are," dealing with Pueblo Indian food. "To Coexist: Diversity and Development" was produced in 1989 for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The 30-minute program depicts how development professionals can take biological diversity into account when planning their projects. "Diversity Endangered" is a 10-minute video production demonstrating the interrelatedness of living organisms and the part that man plays in disturbing or preserving the crucial balance. The video was produced in 1987. "The Beauty and Diversity of Our Planet" is a 30-second public service announcement done by Robert Redford. This was possibly done in conjunction with "Our Biosphere: The Earth in Our Hands" which Redford narrated. Materials in this accession include original video, dub masters, window dubs, edited masters, and sound mixes on 1" magnetic tape, 3/4" U-Matic tape, Betacam SP, digital Betacam, and DAT tapes. Materials also include computer diskettes.
