Secret Cinema Film Series
Chang: A Drama of the Wilderness (1927)

Before they dreamed up that oversized ape, King Kong's creators Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack filmed this amazing semi-documentary. Shot entirely on location and under dangerous conditions in Siam (modern-day Thailand), the film tells the story of a farmer and his family who have settled a small patch of land on the edge of the jungle. Their existence is a constant struggle against the many wild animals around them: bears, tigers, and even changs! Join us for what Cooper called ""the best picture I ever made."" Free with Museum admission.
