    Impact of the Frolic
      (Advanced Lab for Visual Anthropology, 24 min.)
    In the summer of 1984, archaeologist Thomas Layton unearthed some unexpected Chinese artifacts at a Native American site in Mendocino County, California. Driven to discover their origins, Dr. Layton set out on a quest to solve the riddle of the mysterious potsherd. These potsherds had been recovered from a cargo of Chinese porcelain spilled from a Gold Rush shipwreck. How these altered the perception of Chinese immigration into the United States and its impact on both sides is the subject of this film. What he eventually uncovered was the story of vast cultural connections and a shipwreck that impacted California forever.

    Chartres: Light Reborn (France, 52 min.)
    Chartres Cathedral, an icon of French Gothic architecture, underwent restoration between June 2014 and October 2016 of the nave, the stained-glass windows on each side, and the first statues in the ambulatory. Anne Savalli’s 2016 documentary Chartres: Light Reborn tells the story of the restorers, archaeologists, scientists, and architects who worked to complete this vast project.
