In Search of the California Condor
This original 16 mm film footage was shot by filmmaker Matrine Jozan Work�s late husband Telford Work, then a student at Stanford University Medical School. It documents the search for condors in the Sespe area of Southern California. From egg to six months of age the condor is shown in its natural habitat. By digitizing the 16 mm film and adding narration and music, Martine Work was able to put this old footage in a more educational and palatable format. Photographs from T. Work�s archives and other sources (with written permission) were used to make up a small introduction about the history of the condor and a conclusion covering the recent successes in recovery. Both the original film and photographs have been donated to the Museum of Santa Barbara.
