Chasing the dragon on film | with A/P Timothy Barnard

In the 1920s and 1930s Komodo dragons were a 'celebrity species' that zoos sought for their collections. The capture and transportation of these animals, only found in Indonesia, was difficult. To document this process, early adventurers and makers of nature films went to Komodo, in remote eastern Indonesia, to capture the process, as well as the animal. This screening and talk will feature short film clips from three different expeditions (1926, 1927 and 1936) from three different nations (the United States, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom) to capture the dragon.
